Gracious and merciful God,

We praise you as do the angels

And all the heavenly host.

We praise you as even all the

Creation offers praise.

In response to the call of Christ, we

Give our lives to you.

Even in this moment we celebrate the

Love of Christ for us and

For the world and we give these

Offerings for the sake of

Christ’s work in the world. Amen.
