V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. Who has made heaven and earth.
4 V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with your spirit.
Let us pray.
We beg of You, Lord,
to let the grace of Your blessing
come upon these eggs which You have made.
May they be healthful food for Your people,
who eat them in thanksgiving
for the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and is King with You for ever and ever.
(Then the eggs are sprinkled with holy water.)
