Greenbelt 2010 Eucharistic Prayer for the Mass of the Edge

A mixture of recorded and live music from Blackthorn Crescent, this is why the video is silent after the Sanctus.

Numbers in the text below refer to the numbers at the bottom left of the screen. At the elevations, the guitar soars in a new take on the sanctuary bells

Pray my dear friend that this our sacrifice be acceptable to God, the Almighty Father
May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of his name, for our good and the good of all his church

(1)The Lord be with you
and also with you

Lift up your hearts
We lift them to the Lord

Let us give thanks to the Lord, our God
It is right to give thanks and praise.
(2) Father, all powerful and ever living God
We do well always and everywhere to give you thanks
Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord

Tonight, we bring to this table all that is painful in our lives.

Our disappointments,
Our failures,
Our addictions,

(3) In that bringing we come to the foot of your cross,
Where you raise all of this up
And our pain is overshadowed by your victory
Over sin and death
Over pain and suffering
Over abuse and addiction

So that we may join our prayers with the redeemed and renewed company of heaven, forever praising you and singing….
(4) Holy, Holy, Holy Lord
God of power and might
heaven and earth are full of your glory
Hosanna in the highest

Blesséd is he who comes in the name of the Lord
Hosanna in the highest

(5) Lord, you are holy indeed, the source of all holiness;
grant that by the power of your Holy Spirit,
and according to your holy will,
these gifts of bread and wine
may be to us the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ;

who, in the same night that he was betrayed,
took bread and gave you thanks;
he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying:

(6) Take, eat; this is my body
which is given for you;
do this in remembrance of me.

(7) In the same way, after supper
he took the cup and gave you thanks;
he gave it to them, saying:

Drink this, all of you;
this is my blood of the new covenant,
which is shed for you and for all

for the forgiveness of sins.
Do this, as often as you drink it,
in remembrance of me.

(8) Let us proclaim the mystery of faith…
Christ has died
Christ is risen
Christ will come again

(9) And so, Father, calling to mind his death on the cross,
his perfect sacrifice made once for the sins
of the whole world;
rejoicing in his mighty resurrection
and glorious ascension,
and looking for his coming in glory,
we celebrate this memorial of our redemption.

(10) As we offer you this our sacrifice
of praise and thanksgiving,
we bring before you this bread and this cup
and we thank you for counting us worthy
to stand in your presence and serve you.
(11) Send the Holy Spirit on your people
and gather into one in your kingdom
all who share this one bread and one cup,
so that we, in the company of

Our Blesséd Lady of Walsingham and all the saints,
may praise and glorify you for ever,
through Jesus Christ our Lord;

(12) by whom, and with whom, and in whom,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
all honour and glory be yours, almighty Father,
for ever and ever.
