In good times and in bad,
You have walked with your people,
O God of the covenant.
Bless our lives with moments of grace,
and sanctify the passage of time
with your presence.
May Christ be the Alpha and the Omega,
The beginning and the end,
Of all that we do.
With Christ, who has died,
Is risen, and will come again,
May our history of faith
Lead to a future
Crowned by the glory of a heavenly banquet,
For ever and ever. Amen
