Offertory

Lord, accept the gifts we offer at this Eucharistic
feast, bread and wine to be transformed now
through the action of thy priest take us too, Lord,
and transform us, be thy grace in us increased.

May our souls be pure and spotless as the host
of wheat of fine; may all stain of sin be crushed
out, like the grape that forms the wine, as we, too,
become partakers, in this sacrifice divine.

Take our gifts, almighty Father, living God,
eternal, true, which we give through Christ, our
Saviour, pleading here for us anew grant salvation
to all present, and our faith and love renew.
