“Lift up your hearts. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is truly very fitting, right, just, and salutary, that we should give you thanks at all times and in all places. O Lord, holy, almighty Father, eternal God, you obtained salvation for us through the wooden cross, so that life should come from the same as that from which death originated, and so that the enemy, who by the transgression of the tree overcame us all in Adam, would be conquered through the obedience offered on the tree, through Christ Jesus our Lord. Through his majesty and glory, the angels and all the heavenly host together rejoice and praise you with one voice. With these, we pray in all humility. Accept also our voices, as we say:
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts, heaven and earth are full of your glory.
O, save us in the highest!”
