~Scripture Sentence~

 Come, let us return to the Lord, that we may live before him. 

Hosea 6:1a, 2b


Grant, O merciful God,

that your people may have that mind that was in Christ Jesus,

who emptied himself, and took the form of a servant,

and in humility became obedient even to death.

For you have highly exalted him

and bestowed on him the name

that is above every name, Jesus Christ, the Lord;

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, in everlasting glory.

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
