Eucharistic Acclamations

St Edmunds Mass

  1. Celebrant/Cantor:
    You were sent to heal our lives, Lord;
    you were sent to give us life.
  • Refrain:
    Merciful Jesus, send your Spirit upon us.
  1. You were sent to show us love;
    love for one another here.
  2. You came down to earth to heal us;
    show us how to live together.
  3. Cleanse our lives of pain and hatred;
    make us whole in love again.
  4. Show us your mercy, Father;
    we ask this through Jesus, your Son.
  • Final refrain:
    Merciful Jesus, send your Spirit upon us.
  • Celebrant/Cantor: Amen.
    All: Amen.
