What can we bring to offer as our gift to you,
O Lord, O God, as our gift to you?
You are full of kindness for your sinful sons,
O Lord, O God, for your sinful sons.
Father, all that we have,
Father, comes from your hands.
So we offer you, Jesus, as our holy gift,
O Lord, O God, as your holy gift.
Take then all of our labour, suffering and pain,
O Lord, O God, suffering and pain. Take then
beauty and gladness, heart and mind and will,
O Lord, O God, heart and mind and will.
Bread and wine will be given, humble food and
drink, O Lord, O God, humble food and drink.
Symbols of human labour, symbols of ourselves,
O Lord, O God, symbols of ourselves.
