My brother and sisters in Jesus Christ,
let us praise God our Father,
who called us in baptism to be his people.
[Moment of silence.]
Blessed are you, Lord our God,
Father of all and creator of the universe:
through the waters of our baptism,
you have raised us to new life in Jesus.
Let this water remind us of your love
show to us when we were baptized.
Help us, Father, to live in your service.
Blessed are you, Father,
for ever and ever.
