FAMILIAR PRAYERS MADE MORE FAMILIAR

Categories: Father Fay's Section

With our way of life so radically changed
it is good to return to familiar prayers from our worship
and spend some time absorbing the deep faith
the composer of this prayer/hymn expressed here.
Take it line by line
pause as the end of each line or phrase
and let God reveal the beauty of each phrase.
The next time we say or sing this in the full assembly
we will make the meaning come more readily from our hearts
as God wants.
It is a faith gift of these unusual days.

Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to people of good will.
We praise you,
we bless you,
we adore you,
we glorify you,
we give you thanks for your great glory,
Lord God, heavenly King,
O God, almighty Father.
Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son,
Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,
you take away the sins of the world,
have mercy on us;
you take away the sins of the world,
receive our prayer;
you are seated at the right hand of the Father,
have mercy on us.
For you alone are the Holy One,
you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High,
Jesus Christ,
with the Holy Spirit,
in the glory of God the Father.
Amen.
