Great Thanksgiving
     The Lord be with you.
     And also with you.
     Lift up your hearts
     We lift them up to the Lord.
     Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
     It is right to give our thanks and praise.
And so, with your people on earth
and all the company of heaven
we praise your name and join their unending hymn (sanctus):
     (sung) Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and
   might,  heaven and earth are full of your glory.
   Hosanna in the highest.
   Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
   Hosanna in the highest.
And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ,
we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving
as a holy and living sacrifice,
in union with Christ’s offering for us,
as we proclaim the mystery of faith.
     Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.

     Haleluya! We sing your praise
     All our hearts are filled with gladness
