Kiddush over the Wine 

from the Prayer Book Genesis 2

The sixth day:

And the heavens and the earth and all their hosts were completed. And G-d finished, by the Seventh Day, His work which He had done, and He rested on the Seventh Day from all His work which He had done. And G-d blessed the Seventh Day and made it holy, for on it He rested from all His work which G-d created to function:

Blessed are You, Lord our G-d, King of the universe, who has hallowed us with His commandments, has desired us, and has given us, in love and goodwill, His holy Shabbat as a heritage, in remembrance of the work of Creation; the first of the holy festivals, commemorating the Exodus from Egypt. For You have chosen us and sanctified us from among all the nations, and with love and goodwill given us Your holy Shabbat as a heritage. Blessed are You G-d, who hallows the Shabbat.

Blessed are You, G-d our Lord, King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.
