Cranmer’s Collect: Easter Sunday

Almighty God, which through thy only begotten son Jesus Christ has overcome death, and opened unto us the gate of everlasting life; we humbly beseech thee, that, as by thy special grace, preventing us, thou dost put in our minds good desires, so by thy continual help we may bring the same to good effect; through Jesus Christ our Lord who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, now and forever. Amen.

-The Collects of Thomas Cranmer by Paul F. M. Zahl
