maundy thursday, Year A
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. --John 13:34
Three holy days enfold us now in gathering friends and breaking bread,
in cross and font and life renewed: in Christ, God’s first-born from the dead.
The mystery hid from ages past is here revealed in word and sign,
for Jesus’ story is our own: new life through death is God’s design.
Christ lifted high upon the tree, before you every knee shall bend
and every tongue in praise proclaim: “You are the Holy One. Amen.”
Enter into worship.
