The traditional Advent hymn ‘O come, O come, Emmanuel’ is based on the ‘O Antiphons’. These traditional prayers, going back to the 7th or 8th cent are generally used in the last week of Advent.
Here is a form of Creed using this hymn as a basis. It is designed for a worship leader to say the lines of the hymn with the congregation joining in the responses

O come, O come, Emmanuel
Jesus, come to us, come to our hurting world

And ransom captive Israel

You are our Redeemer

That mourns in lonely exile here

We, and the whole creation , waits with longing for you to appear

Until the Son of God appear

You came that first Christmas and have promised to come again

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse

Jesus, you are truly human, like us you had a family tree

free Thine own from Satan's tyranny

You have the power to overcome evil in our lives
