The Cross

Dying You destroyed our death
Rising You restored our life
Christ Jesus , come in glory.

The Opening Invitatory Bead

Blessed are you Lord, King of Kings
You have given us your peace
And set a hunger in our hearts.

The Cruciform Beads

Lighten our darkness, Lord
Let the light of your presence
Dispel the shadows of our world.

O God lead us from death to life,
From falsehood to truth.

The 2nd (Septet) Week Beads

Lead us from despair to hope,
From fear to trust.

From war to peace.

The Closing Invitatory Bead

The peace of the Father of joy
The peace of Christ the hope
The peace of the Spirit of grace
The peace of all peace be ours this day/this night

The Cross

Dying, you destroyed our death
Rising, you restored our life
Christ Jesus, come in glory
