 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:
     (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.
  Receiving the Bread and the Cup
*Hymn #610:  We Know that Christ Is Raised
  Closing Song:  Haleluya! Pelo Tsa Rona
Now he sends us all out

       Strong in faith, free of doubt
       Tell to all the joyful gospel.
       Haleluya! We sing your praises
       All our hearts are filled with gladness.
       Haleluya! We sing your praises
       All our hearts are filled with gladness
