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.
For you so loved the world
that in your mercy you sent us the Redeemer,
to live like us in all things but sin,
so that you might love in us what you loved in your Son,
by whose obedience we have been restored
to those gifts of yours that,
by sinning, we had lost in disobedience.
And so Lord, with all the Angels and Saints,
we, too, give you thanks, as in exultation we acclaim:
