God and King of Sunday blessing
We exalt Your name.
For the splendour of creation
For the beauty of the world
For the wonder of life
For the mystery of love
We thank You.
Above all this we thank You
For the coming of Christ
And the gift of Your Spirit
Who together unites us
As one people praying
For the coming of Your kingdom.
Where there’s hatred, may we sow love
Where there’s offense, may we sow pardon
Where there’s dispair, may we sow hope.
Throughout this good earth
Where worldly powers mean it harm
We pray for Your holy catholic Church:
Empowers us to minister
The hope of Your kingdom.
