We offer you our hands, O Lord, to do your work; our lips
to sing your praise; a life to proclaim your glory and a heart
to serve our neighbour; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179)
God, without beginning or ending,
may we, your people, keep Jesus as first and last in all we
God, in whom we find our eternal rest,
may we allow your Spirit to guide us as we
God who spoke through women and men of faith
in every generation,
inspire us by our memory of them.
God of past, present and future,
enable us to trust you as we enter times of
for you are the God we adore. Amen.
