you set the example for us to follow;
as we fulfil your call to love one another
make us faithful sharers of your good news.
Through Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God,
who is alive and reigns with you now and forever,
and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our Father in heaven,
the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
grant to us this day and every day
such readiness and delight in following Christ,
that whether our lives are short or long
we shall have lived abundantly.
