SATB with organ. Gracious, comforting, and beautiful.
Father of all, we give you thanks and praise,
that when we were still far off you met us in your Son and brought us home.
Dying and living, he declared your love, gave us grace, and opened the gate of glory.
May we who share Christ's body live his risen we life;
who drink his cup bring life to others;
we whom the Spirit lights give light unto the world.
Keep us firm in the faith that you have set before us,
so we and all your children shall be free,
and the whole earth live to praise your name;
through Christ our our Lord, Amen.
