Three times we sing:
Holy, holy, holy!

Three times we pray:
Mercy, mercy, mercy!

All credit and praise are due to you, O LORD Most High,
for you are mighty and magnificent above all else!
You are stunning in creation and redemption,
beyond our wonder in power and blessing.

Three times we sing:
Holy, holy, holy!

Three times we pray:
Mercy, mercy, mercy!

By your grace we are bold to bring you our prayers:
for hearts that are mourning, for lives that are displaced,
for injustices that seem endless and for love that is,
for the joys and the struggles of relationships,
for opportunities, for doubts, for dreams.

Three times we sing:
Holy, holy, holy!

Three times we pray:
Mercy, mercy, mercy!

We trust in you, O Christ, through uncertainty and hope.
Receive our stories — complicated and faulty as they are;
speak faith and courage to our questions and worries.
Let your Spirit reconcile us to fear for dynamic new life.

Three times we sing:
Holy, holy, holy!

Three times we pray:
Amen, amen, amen!
