Gloria

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people of goodwill.

We praise you, we bless you, we adore you, we glorify you,
we give you thanks for your great glory, Lord God, heavenly King,

O God, almighty Father.
Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son, Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,
you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us;
you take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer; 
you are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us.

For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, 
you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, 
with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

 

Sunday Mass Readings
 

From the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops 

Responsorial Psalm: 

The Lord is my shepherd, there is nothing I shall want

Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, 
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, 
(all bow until 'became man')
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son
is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.
Amen.

 

Presentation Song: Lay It Down

Brenton Brown | Matt Maher

Ev'rything I am ev'rything I long to be
I lay it down at Your feet
Ev'rything I am ev'rything I long to be
I lay it down at Your feet
I lay it down I lay it down
I lay it down at Your feet

Oh pearl of greatest price
No act of sacrifice
Can match the gift of life
I find within Your gaze
Oh what a sweet exchange
I die to rise again
Lifted up from the grave

Into Your hands of grace

I lay it down I lay it down
I lay it down at Your feet

Sanctus
 

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts.
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.

Memorial Acclamation
 

Mortem tuam anuntiamus, Domine, et Tuam resurrectionem confitemur, donec venias.

We proclaim your death O Lord and profess your resurrection until you come again in glory.

Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.

Invitation to Communion
 

Priest: Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sin of the world.
Blessed are those called to the supper of the lamb.

People: Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof,
but only say the word and my soul will be healed

An Act of Spiritual Communion 
 

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart, I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Communion Song: Hungry

Kathryn Scott

Hungry I come to You for I know You satisfy
I am empty but I know Your love does not run dry

So I wait for You
So I wait for You
I'm falling on my knees
Offering all of me
Jesus You're all this heart is living for

Broken I run to You for Your arms are open wide
I am weary but I know Your touch restores my life


So I wait for You
So I wait for You
I'm falling on my knees
Offering all of me
Jesus You're all this heart is living for

 

Humble King
Brenton Brown


Oh kneel me down a-gain
Here at Your feet
Show me how much You love humility
Oh Spirit be the star that leads me to
The humble heart of love I see in You

You are the God of the broken
The friend of the weak
You wash the feet of the weary
Embrace the ones in need
I want to be like You, Jesus
To have this heart in me
You are the God of the humble
You are the humble King

Sending Forth Song: Indescribable

Paul Wickham

From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea
Creations revealing Your majesty
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring
Every creature unique in the song that it sings
All exclaiming

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All-powerful, untamable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go
Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow
Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light
Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night
None can fathom

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All-powerful, untamable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God
