Adoration of the lamb by Jan van Eyck, 1400

O God, by whom, in the Gospel,
we are all invited to the marriage supper of your Son,
so incline the hearts of these your servants
that they may give obedience to your call.
Bring them, at the end of their days,
to your banqueting house,
and may your banner over them be always love;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,

“Hallelujah!
For the Lord our God
    the Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and exult
    and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
    and his Bride has made herself ready;
it was granted her to clothe herself
    with fine linen, bright and pure”—
for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.

And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.”
