You invite us to your feast, Lord,
and we come to sing your praise,
to proclaim your death and rising,
and to share this meal of love.
There is joy today and the Church is full.
We have come to praise you, Lord.
Soon the bread we bring and the wine we pour
will become your flesh and blood.
Be not mindful, Lord, of our sinfulness,
do not judge us for our faults.
Be compassionate, show your tenderness
to the humble, contrite heart.
To the Triune God let your praises go,
to the Father and the Son,
to the Holy Spirit, the source of love,
we give praises for evermore.
