Introit for Advent
Come, O come, Savior of the nations, come,
Virgin's son, make here thy home,
marvel now O heav'n and earth
that the Lord chose such a birth.
--Martin Luther, after Ambrose of Milan

Introit for Christmas
Unto us is born a son, unto us a son is given
and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor
or the Mighty God the Everlasting Father the Prince of Peace.

Introit for Chorus and Bells
Sing a song, sing a new song,
all the earth, a new song, O sing!

Behold, the ruler has come, the ruler has come,
and the kingdom and the pow'r and the glory are in his hand.

Introit for Lent
Remember, remember not Lord, our offenses.
Unto thee do I lift my soul: O my God,
I trust in thee; let me not be ashamed.
--Psalm 25:1, 7.
