You may light a candle.
Let us give thanks to our God,
who has delivered us from the dominion of darkness
and made us partakers in the inheritance
of the saints in light.
The light of Christ be with you
And also with you.
Let us give thanks to God
It is right to offer thanks and praise.
Blessèd are you,
the Living One,
to you be glory and praise for ever!
In the darkness of this passing age,
your saints proclaim the glory of your Kingdom,
revealed among us in Christ, our light.
Open our eyes to behold your presence
and join our song with those of the saints
in praise of all your marvellous deeds,
Creator, Redeemer, and Giver of Life:
Blessèd be God for ever!
