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 our thanks to the Lord.
            It is right to give our thanks and praise.
   It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Almighty God, creator of heaven and earth. You have created the earth and sky, the sea and stars, and all the living creatures therein. Your works are the essence of majesty and honor. Your righteousness lives forever. You demonstrate your power in strange and unexpected ways: from the birth of your Son in a manger, to the gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit calling us to love one another. The works of your hands are faithful and just, and your mercy endures forever. And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven, we praise your name and join their unending hymn.
            Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of  your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is the one who comes in the name of
            the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
    Holy are you, and blessed is your Son, Jesus Christ. Who came to cleanse us from our sins, and to bring us newness of life. In the power of the Holy Spirit, he healed people, and taught as one who had authority. He brought a new teaching – a teaching of love, forgiveness, and the power of God for justice and mercy.
