Draw near with faith:

receive the body of our Lord Jesus Christ

with thanksgiving.

Taste and see that the Lord is good.

Happy are those who find refuge in him!

Take, eat. This is the body of Christ

which is (broken) for you.

Do this, remembering him.

The people partake of their own bread in their seats

In giving the cup, the minister says:

This cup is the new covenant

which was shed that the sins of many
