Notes: Hearing the Gospel, the Word of Christ amongst us, is one of the high points of the Eucharist. To greet the Gospel, a sung Alleluia (or Praise to you, O Christ in Lent) can give the reading the importance it deserves. For some churches, a reader will read from the lectern, in others the Gospel will be preceded by a long, grand procession. Most churches will do something between these two. They could be sung in any of the following ways:
1) Alleluia/Acclamation just sung once.
2) Alleluia/Acclamation sung once by the choir then repeated by the congregation and choir
(with or without descant)
3) Alleluia/Acclamation sung once or twice followed by the verse and then the Alleluia again
with or without the descant.

Gospel Alleluia
[General] Speak, O Lord, for your servant is listening; you have the words of eternal life.
[Ascension] Go make disciples of all the nations; I am with you to the end of time.
[Pentecost] Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful; kindle them in the fire of your love.

[Easter] I am the first and the last, says the Lord, and the living One; I was dead and behold, I am alive for evermore.
[Trinity] Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; One God who was, and who is, and who is to come, the Almighty.


Lenten Acclamation
Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory.
The Lord is a great God, O that today you would listen to his voice. Harden not your hearts.
Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory.
