A gloss upon the blessing that concludes daily Morning and Evening Prayer.
May the Lord bless us
… with Christ’s command to love others
… with His gift of the Eucharist
… and with His commissioning of ministers
protect us from all evil
… through the Son’s obedience to the Father
… through His bearing of our sins
… and through His death upon the cross
and bring us to everlasting life
… by Christ’s descent into the depths
… by His harrowing of hell
… and by His rescue of His children from death
… So be it!
… Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!
