Through Jesus

We praise our God
Through you, his Son, our Saviour,

And humbly ask forgiveness
Through your name.

All healing is requested
Through your title; 

All signs and wonders worked, Lord,
Through the same. 

So may we spread the Gospel 
Through your power;

In all we say, may we 
Become like you,

Whilst always giving thanks
Through you to heaven, 

And serving God
Through everything we do.
