Hymn CP485  - Love Divine, All Loves Excelling  Link to Hymn

This is the day that Christ the Lamb of God gave himself into the hands of those who would slay him. This is the day that Christ gathered with his disciples in the upper room. This is the day that Christ took a towel and washed the disciples’ feet, giving us an example that we should do to others as he has done to us. This is the day that Christ our God gave us this holy feast, that we who eat this bread and drink this cup may here proclaim his Holy Sacrifice and be partakers of his resurrection, and at the last day may reign with him in heaven.

The night has passed, and the day lies open before us;

Let us pray with one heart and one mind.


O God, your Son Jesus Christ has left to us the blessed meal of bread and wine in which we share his body and his blood. May we who look forward to celebrating this sign of his great love show in our lives the fruits of his redemption; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen

Come, creator, source of life; sustain us when our hearts are heavy and our wells feel as though they are running dry, for you are the Father’s gift, with Him who is our living water. Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
