The Assumption – August 10

 

This week we celebrate the Feast of the Assumption (August 15), a day when we remember that Mary was taken up into heaven to a special position with God.

 

We praise you O God
for the great things you have done!
God of Mary, you do wondrous things!

Your favour is upon us as it was with Mary.
God of Mary, you do wondrous things!

You touch our lives and hearts as you did Mary’s.
God of Mary, you do wondrous things!

You raise us up, poor and lowly as we are.
God of Mary, you do wondrous things!

You smile upon us when we are weak and broken.
God of Mary, you do wondrous things!

You gaze upon your servant with compassion.
God of Mary, you do wondrous things!

You are great and your name is holy.
God of Mary, you do wondrous things!

God of Mary, hear our prayers in praise of your favour upon us.
Make us ever thankful for your grace and goodness in our lives.
