Advent, Third Week, Wednesday

Shout for joy! Sing joyfully! Be glad and exult with all your heart! On that day it shall be said: "Fear not, be not discouraged! The Lord, your God, is in your midst, A mighty savior; He will sing joyfully because of you And renew you in His love". Zephaniah 3, 14-18 Lord God, let me see better the reasons for joy; let me know how much You love me; let me understand Jesus. O WISDOM, O HOLY WORD OF GOD, you govern all creation with your strong yet tender care. Come and show your people the way to salvation.
