For grace in Creation, and for our salvation,
O God, in thanksgiving we joyfully sing.
For giving us Jesus, who heals us and frees us,
who walks with us daily, our glad praise we bring.
God, holy and mighty, your glory shines brightly!
Hosanna on high! Love, your praise we proclaim!
Your welcome is spacious; your table is gracious.
God, bles-sed is each one who comes in your name.
God, in your great favor you sent us a savior,
Christ Jesus, our brother, our teacher, our friend.
He taught and he healed and your grace he revealed,
and he gave of himself in your love without end.
Behold! Christ has died! Behold! Christ is risen!
Behold, your Beloved Christ will come again!
Your grace throughout history we see in this mystery,
and feast on your presence, our savior, our friend.
Now humbly expressing our thanks for your blessing
we feast in the presence of your loving son.
Love, pour out your Spirit, that we may inherit
your love and compassion, and make us all one.
With this bread and cup, fill our hearts, lift us up
and re-make us, the Body of Christ once again!
With gracious self-giving in all of our living
we offer ourselves and we praise you! Amen.
