Refrain:

All   Tell the good news of Jesus the Christ

to all who are searching for redemption.

1    This is the message we have heard from Christ

and proclaim to you:  

that God is light,

in whom there is no darkness at all.

2    If we say that we have fellowship with God

while we walk in darkness,  

we lie and do not do what is true.

3    But if we walk in the light

as God is in the light,  

we have fellowship with one another.

4    And the blood of Jesus, the Son of God,  

cleanses us from all our sins.

5    If we say that we have no sin,  

we deceive ourselves

and the truth is not in us.

6    If we confess our sins,  

the One who is faithful and just will forgive us

and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1. 5-9

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   Tell the good news of Jesus the Christ

to all who are searching for redemption.
