Benediction: Lent 1 C

Here’s a commission and benediction for the first Sunday of Lent, Year C.  It was written by Nathan Nettleton.


Benediction for Lent 1 C


Go now, confessing Christ as Lord, in word and deed.
Worship and serve the Lord your God and no other.
Stand firm in the time of trial;
tell the story of God’s goodness,
and trust in the Lord whose saving word is always with you.

And may God instruct angels to guard you wherever you go;
May Christ Jesus be your refuge and stronghold;
And may the Holy Spirit lead you 
and put God’s Word on your lips and in your hearts.

We go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
In the name of Christ. Amen.
