In Thy great love, dear Lord, Thou didst go through the shadows and the gloom and the agony of Mount Calvary, in order that we might know the brightness, the gladness, the glory of Paradise. Through all our lives Thy love has never failed us, and we would commemorate it again as we are gathered around this table of Thy bounty. Amen.
