God of good tidings, you gladden our hearts with your favor.  Our ears are attuned to your words of mercy.  Wherever we look, we see signs of your presence:  Christ has truly come to set the captives free.  Washed clean by your grace and renewed by your Spirit, we put on the mantles of praise and raise our voices in glad adoration:  All glory be to you, O God of splendor and majesty, for in Christ we receive the gift of new life.
