Blest are you, Lord Jesus who came to us a little child one of us, flesh and blood to share in our humanity.

Blest are you, Lord Jesus who came to us as carpenter and yet in whose creative hands a world was fashioned
For God so loved the world

ALL: That all might have eternal life

Blest are you, Lord Jesus who came to us as fisherman and yet pointed to a harvest that was yet to come

For God so loved the world

Blest are you, Lord Jesus who came to us as prophet, priest and king and yet humbled himself to take our place upon the cross. For God so loved the world

ALL: That all might have eternal life

Blest are you, Lord Jesus who came to us as servant and revealed to us the extent of his Father’s love for humankind

Blest are you, Lord Jesus, who rose from the ignominy of a sinner’s death to the triumph of a Savior’s resurrection
For God so loved the world

ALL: That all might have eternal life God of resurrection of life and death rebirth, renew our hearts and minds.

Draw us close. Open our eyes to the glory of the risen Christ, our hearts to the wonder of the Cross and our hands to the service of your kingdom where you have placed us. That your name might be glorified through our lives.

ALL: Forgive us that we fail to show through word and action the truth that you loved us into your kingdom through the glorious mystery of the Cross. Forgive us that there is still fear in our lives that prevents us from achieving our full potential.

And now with the faith of God holy people let us pray the prayer Christ gave when he gave as an example when he prayed . . . Lord’s Prayer
