It is truly right and just,
our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father,
almighty and eternal God,
through Christ our Lord.
For through him the holy exchange that restores our life
has shone forth today in splendour:
when our frailty is assumed by your word
not only does human mortality receive unending honour
but by this wondrous union we, too, are made eternal.
And so, in company with the choirs of Angels,
we praise you, and with joy we proclaim:
