V. By your grace, raise us up and save us;

V. For by your grace we have been saved by faith;
R. Not by works of our own doing, but as your gift so that none may boast.
V. Yet you, yourself, have made us – created us in Christ for good works;
R. Help us walk in the way which you have prepared for us.

R. So that our lives may be worthy and pleasing before you.
V. Grant that our works may bear good fruit;
R. That we may grow in the knowledge and love of you.

R. And prepared to endure in patience,
V. Joyfully giving you thanks, O Lord;
R. Who have made us to share in the inheritance of the saints of light.
V. Rescue us from the power of darkness;
R. And bring us to the kingdom of your Son,
V. In whom we have plenteous redemption;
R. And the forgiveness of our sins.
