GREAT THANKSGIVING FOR EPIPHANY OF THE LORD
Christ be with you.

Lift up your hearts.
We lift them up to God.

Let us give our thanks to the Holy One.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.

And so, with your creatures on earth and all the heavenly chorus, we praise

your name and join their unending hymn, saying:

Holy, holy holy One, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full

of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is the one who comes in

your holy name. Hosanna in the highest.

 

And so, in remembrance of your mighty acts in Jesus Christ, we proclaim in the

mystery of faith.

Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.

 
Light of the world, wisdom of God, maker of all things, we praise your
holy name.
Amen.
