Drawing Near

O God,
who by the blood of thy dear Son
hast consecrated unto us a new and living way
unto the holiest of all;
Grant unto us, we beseech thee,
the assurance of thy mercy,
and sanctify us by thy heavenly grace;
that we,
approaching unto thee with pure heart and undefiled conscience,
may offer unto thee a sacrifice in righteousness,
and duly celebrate these holy mysteries to the glory of thy Name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


From the liturgy of the Catholic Apostolic Church (1899)
