End of Canon
Calling to mind our Saviour's teachings, we take heart and say this prayer we have learnt from God himself20:
Lamb of God, who take away the sins21 of the world, have mercy on us. Lamb of God, who take away the sins of the world, grant us peace. Lamb of God, who take away the sins of the world, grant them rest for ever.
The Mass is ended: Let us go forth in peace. Giving thanks to God. Almighty God bless you, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen22.
