Leader:   How we long for that day when all creation will join the song, Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

People: We thank you and praise you for your presence with us, here, now, to strengthen us for our walk and our work with you and one another.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
