Father all-powerful and ever-living God, we do well always and everywhere to give thanks. We see Your infinite power in Your loving plan of salvation. You came to our rescue by Your power as God, but You wanted us to be saved by one like us. The human family refused Your friendship, but it was restored by Jesus Christ our lord. Through Him the angels of heaven offer their prayer of adoration as they rejoice in Your presence for ever. May our voices be one with theirs in their triumphant hymn of praise: Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
