Glorious Collect for Easter Eve
Grant, O Lord, that as we are baptized into the death of thy blessed Son our Saviour Jesus Christ,
so by continual mortifying our corrupt affections we may be buried with him;
and that through the grave, and gate of death, we may pass to our joyful resurrection ;
for his merits, who died, and was buried, and rose again for us,
thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
