The Eko (dedication of merit) by one person:

With full awareness We have chanted the Enmei Jukku Kannon Gyo for protecting life.
We offer the merit and benefit to: (raise pitch)
The ease, well-being and recovery of our dear dharma friends Darlene Cohen and Tony Patchell, and to all sentient beings.

When we do the Tuesday morning well-being service as the morning service, we do the Metta Sutta followed by the Enmei Jukku Kannon Gyo (7 repetitions) and the Eko, mentioning both sutras in the eko.
