Bless now, O heavenly Father, your people
gathering round you before your altar bringing
our gifts: bread for your broken body, wine for
your blood which heals us, and all the love, Lord,
of our poor hearts.
We, your people, with full hearts we ask you,
O take our gifts, Lord, and make them yours.
Bless now, O heavenly Father, your people gathered
round you, here at this altar offering our gifts.
Forgive our human folly, give strength in times of
weakness, light for our journey to bring us home.
