The Presider continues.
In the night in which he was betrayed, our Lord Jesus took bread, and gave thanks; broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying: Take and eat; this is my body, given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.
Again, after supper, he took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it for all to drink, saying: This cup is the new covenant in my blood, shed for you and all people for the forgiveness of sin. Do this for the remembrance of me. For as often as we eat of this bread and drink from this cup we proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
Christ has died.
Christ is risen.
Christ will come again.
Remembering, therefore, his death and resurrection, we await the day when Jesus shall return to free the whole earth from the bonds of enslavement and death. Come, Lord Jesus! And let the church say, Amen.
Send your Holy Spirit, our advocate, to make this bread and wine the Body and Blood of our Son and fill the hearts of all who share this bread and cup with courage and wisdom to pursue love and justice in all the world.
Come, Spirit of freedom! And let the church say, Amen.
Join our prayers and praise with your prophets
and martyrs of every age,
that, rejoicing in the hope of the resurrection,
we might live in the freedom and hope of your Son.
Through Christ, with Christ, and in Christ, in union with the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor is yours, Holy God, now and forever.
The musicians and people sing
As Jesus taught his friends, we now pray,
Presider and People
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your Name,
your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial,
and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours,
now and for ever. Amen.
