A Beautiful Prayer from the Hispanic-Mozarabic Liturgy

Holy and blessed indeed
is our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son;
he is the faith of the patriarchs,
the fulfillment of the law,
the tabernacle of the truth,
the preaching of the prophets,
the teacher of the apostles,
the father of all believers,
the firmness of the weak,
the strength of the sick,
the redemption of captives,
the inheritance of the redeemed,
the health of those who live,
the life of those who die;
it was he who, being the true priest of God,
instituted a new genre of sacrifice.
He offered himself as a pleasing offering
and ordered us to offer it.
Jesus is the Christ, Lord and Eternal Redeemer.
