Benediction: Revelation 7

Here’s a benediction litany based on Revelation 7: 9-17, one of the suggested texts for All Saints Day (November 1).

Benediction
(based on Revelation 7: 12, 16-17)

Blessing and glory and wisdom
and thanksgiving and honour and power
and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen!
We go out to be God’s people.

Go in strength to be the saints of God
for you will hunger no more, and thirst no more;
the sun will not strike you, nor any scorching heat.
We go out to be God’s people.

Live the way of God with confidence
for God is your shepherd,
and will guide you to the spring of life.
We go out to be God’s people.

— from Seasons of the Spirit: All Saints Day—Year A, published by WoodLake Publishing.
