Prayer of Thanksgiving

Let us pray.

Celebrant and People

Almighty and everliving God, we thank you for feeding us with the spiritual food of the most precious Body and Blood of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; and for assuring us in these holy mysteries that we are living members of the Body of your Son, and heirs of you eternal kingdom.

And now, Father, send us out to do the work you have given us to do, to love and serve you as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord. To him, to you, and to the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever.  Amen.


Recessional Hymn    “Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus ”   LEVAS II #194

1 Stand up, stand up, for Jesus, ye soldiers of the cross; lift high his royal banner, it must not suffer loss: from victory unto victory his army shall be lead, till every foe is vanquished and Christ is Lord indeed.

2  Stand up, stand up, for Jesus; the trumpet call obey; forth to the mighty conflict in this his glorious day: ye that are his now serve him against unnumbered foes; let courage rise with danger, and strength to strength oppose.

3 Stand up, stand up, for Jesus; stand in this strength alone; the arm of flesh will fail you, ye dare not trust your own: put on the Gospel armor, and watching unto prayer, when duty calls, or danger,

4 Stand up, stand up, for Jesus: the strife will not be long: this day, the noise of battle; the next, the victor’s song. To valiant hearts triumphant, a crown of life shall be; they with the King of glory hall reign eternally.
