Jesus, Lamb of God,
have mercy on us.
Jesus, bearer of our sin,
have mercy on us.
Jesus, redeemer of the world,
grant us peace.

Ideas for use

This version of the Agnus Dei is taken from the Methodist Worship Book order of Holy Communion “during ordinary Sesons”.

John Bradley’s setting offers simple four-part responses to solo (or soprano line) cantor phrases. Best sung if you have a choir or singing group available, this provides an alternative version to three settings in Singing the Faith (Ian Worsfold’s two-part setting, StF 767; a single-line version from James MacMillan’s St Anne’s Mass, StF 787; and a version from John Bell’s St Bride Setting, which can be sung as a round, StF 790).

Download the John Bradley setting as a PDF. Please print John’s copyright details if you are using a printed order of service.
