your servant Churchill Julius
won your people’s love and respect
by his faithful witness;
give us a like soundness of advice,
and a steadfast care for all in need;
through him who came among us
as servant of all,
Jesus Christ our Saviour.
forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
you call us to serve you with all the strength we have:
you are faithful to those you call;
may Jesus’ resurrection raise us if we stumble,
the Christlight beckon us if we lose our way,
and we shall have strength once more
to walk with you to the cross.
