V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. Who hath made heaven and earth.
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
Let us pray.
Bless, we beseech Thee, O Lord, this fresh fruit of the vine, which Thou hast graciously brought to full ripeness with the dew of heaven, abundant rain, and calm and fair weather. Thou hast given them for our use; grant that we may receive them with thanksgiving in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, the True Vine, who lives and reigns with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God for ever and ever.
(And they are sprinkled with holy water.)
