Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is right to give him thanks and praise.
Lord God of justice and mercy, you care for the world and for every child of your
creation; we glorify your Name. You call us to share your life and you give us your
love. You are our Father, kind and gentle, always ready to forgive. You delight in
our joy, listen patiently to our troubles, and comfort us in distress. (Therefore with the
whole company of heaven we proclaim your great and glorious name, for ever praising
you and saying)
Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest!
(Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!)
Father we glorify your Name for ever. (We glorify your Name for ever).
Though created in your image, we rebelled against you, but you show your love in Jesus
Christ your Word made flesh. He is your Good News to the world; through him we are
saved. ~. He suffered for our sake and gave up his life on the cross to be a ransom
(Crucified Lord, we praise you.)
In the upper room with his friends on the night on which he was betrayed, Jesus took
bread and gave you thanks. He broke it and gave it to them, saying: 'Take, eat. This
is my body, given for you.'
At the end of supper, taking the cup of wine, he gave you thanks, and said: 'Drink
this, all of you; This is my blood of the new covenant, shed for you and for many
for the forgiveness of sins. Do this in remembrance of me.'
(Jesus, you are the true vine).
God of all holiness, we are gathered in your Name to celebrate the one sacrifice Jesus
made for us all, and to praise you for his glorious resurrection. By your Spirit
may these gifts of bread and wine be for us Christ's body and blood; as we do this
in remembrance of him, may we feed on him by faith with thanksgiving. (Holy Spirit, you are the Power of God.)
Lord of all life, help us to work together for your kingdom, and for that day when
your justice and mercy will be seen in all the world. By your grace unite us in Christ
with your whole Church on earth and in heaven, so that with one voice we may worship
you and praise your Name:
Blessing and honour and glory and power, be yours for ever and ever.
