O God, your mercies cannot be counted,
Nor do you tire of offering us forgiveness.
Our sins, which were many, you have forgiven.
May we, therefore, show great love —
Not only to you, the source of all mercy —
But to all our sisters and brothers,
Sinners embraced by your love.
This we pray through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Blessed are you, God most High.
In Jesus Christ you nourish and sustain
All who hunger for the bread of life.
As often as we eat the bread and drink the cup
Which proclaim the Lord’s death,
Let the love of Christ compel us
To hand on to others the blessings
Which we ourselves have received
So generously at your hand. Amen.

Existing in splendor before time began,
You draw near to us, O God most high,
Rejoicing in the Earth which your creatures inhabit,
Delighting in the human race which your hands have made.
Pour forth your love into our hearts
By the gift of your Holy Spirit,
And by that same Spirit guide us into all truth
That we may ever be at peace with you,
Through our Lord Jesus Christ
Who lives and reigns with you and the Spirit,
One God forever and ever. Amen.

And that he lives and reigns with you
In the unity of the Holy Spirit
One God, forever and ever. Amen.
