Lord Jesus Christ,
Son of the living God,
you came down from heaven to earth
from your Father’s side,
suffered five wounds on the wood of the cross,
and shed your precious blood
for the forgiveness of our sins.
At the day of judgment
set us at your right hand,
speak to us those sweet words,
“Come, you who are blessed,
into my Father’s kingdom;”
with the Father and the Holy Spirit
you live and reign,
now and forever.
