Traditionally Gaudate (Latin for "rejoice")
Sunday is a day of rejoicing, as well as the continuing Advent
themes of preparation and right-living.
Psalm: Isaiah 12 - Sing and shout for joy for great in your midst is the Holy one of Israel / God is my salvation / Give thanks to the Lord / Sing a psalm to the Lord
Second: Philippians - I want you to be happy... God is very near, pray for what you need.
Gospel: Luke - People asked John "what must we do" - he told them to act justly - and "I baptise with water but someone is coming who will baptize with the Holy Spirit".
