Refrain:

All   We have come before the throne of God

to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.

1    We have come before God’s holy mountain,  

to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God.

2    We have come before countless angels making festival,  

before the assembly of the firstborn citizens of heaven.

3    We have come before God, who is judge of all,  

before the spirits of the just made perfect.

4    We have come before Jesus,  

the mediator of the new covenant.

5    We are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken:  

so let us give thanks and offer to God acceptable worship,

6    Full of reverence and awe;  

for our God is a consuming fire.

Hebrews 12.22-24a,28,29

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

All   We have come before the throne of God

to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.
