Wherefore, O Father, we thy humble servants

Here bring before thee Christ thy well-beloved,

All-perfect Offering, Sacrifice immortal, Spotless Oblation.


See now thy children, making intercession

Through him our Saviour, Son of God incarnate,

For all thy people, living and departed, Pleading before thee.
