Leader: To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever.
Leader: Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him.
ALL: Even so. Amen.
Leader: Jesus says, “Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”“I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.”
ALL: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might
and honor and glory and blessing!”
(Revelation 1:5–7; 22:12-13; 1:17-18; 5:12 ESV)
