Alpha and Omega by Sharon Tate Soberon via Flickr CC BY-ND 2.0

God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    whose years never fail
    and whose mercies are new each returning day
let the radiance of your Spirit renew our lives
    warming our hearts and giving light to our minds
that we may pass through the coming year
    in joyful obedience and firm faith
through him who is the beginning and the end
    your Son Christ our Lord.

David Silk,1936- , English priest


He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”
Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
He said to me: “It is done.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.
To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life.
Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.
