Lessons and Carols 1

Introit: “Once in David’s Royal City”

The First Lesson

God tells sinful Adam that he has lost the life of Paradise and that his seed will bruise the serpent’s head.

They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

But the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” He said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate.” Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent tricked me, and I ate.”

The LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you among all animals and among all wild creatures; upon your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.”

And to the man he said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life; thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” (Genesis 3:8-15, 17-19)

Carol

“Jesus Christ the Apple Tree”

Lord Voldemort’s Favorite Things

Magical stones that can make me immortal
Triwizard prizes to use as a portal
Old haunted diaries tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

A Twelve-foot long snake, it’s a friend like no other
A Shiny gold locket I got from my mother
Dumbledore’s wand—it could make me a king!
These are a few of my favorite things

An Old lady’s cup in a vault down at Gringott’s
Thrills me far more than a pile of gold ingots
A Crown in Albania and dear Granddad’s ring
These are a few of my favorite things

When my minions
Always fail me
When the Boy won’t die
I simply remember my favorite things
And I’m not a sad bad guy
