God the Father, eternally mysterious, we worship you. God the Son, eternally responding, we bless you. God the Holy Spirit, eternally witnessing, we adore you. Holy and glorious Trinity, three persons and one God, we magnify you, now and for ever. Amen.
Nestorian Liturgy (5th century)
Gracious God, may Christ be my light though all else fails, Christ be my hope when doubt is strong, Christ be my peace when pain is real, Christ be my love when anger burns, Christ be my strength when praise is weak, Christ be the glory when honour is given, Christ be praised when the kingdom comes, Christ be the purpose of all our deeds, Christ be the welcome we give to the stranger, Christ be the object of our seeking and learning, Christ be the word on our mouths at the dawn and close of day. Amen.
