Unison Prayer of Praise and Thanksgiving
O Source of all good,
What shall we give to You for the Gift of all gifts,
Your own dear Son?
He took our flesh and became the Son of Man,
In order that He should make us become with Him sons of God.
He clothed Himself in our poverty,
In order to transfer to us His riches.
He took upon Himself our weakness.
In order to strengthen us by His power.
He assumed our mortal condition,
In order to give to us immortality.
He descended to earth,
In order to raise us to heaven.
O God, let us hear good tidings of great joy,
And hearing, may we believe, rejoice, praise, and adore.
Forgive us our sins, and receive our worship this night.
In Jesus Name. Amen.
