Collects

O God, creator of heaven and earth: Grant that, as the crucified body of thy dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath, so we may await with him the coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

or

O God of the living, on this day thy Son our Savior descended to the place of the dead: Look with kindness on all of us who wait in hope for liberation from the corruption of sin and death, and vouchsafe to grant unto us a share in the glory of the children of God; through the same Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord. Amen.

O God, who dost illumine this most holy night with the glory of the Lord’s resurrection: Stir up, we beseech thee, in thy Church that Spirit of adoption which is given unto us in Baptism, that we, being regenerate both in body and soul, may render unto thee a pure service; through the same Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Prefaces

But chiefly are we bound to praise thee for the glorious Resurrection of thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord: for he is the very Paschal Lamb, which was offered for us, and hath taken away the sin of the world; who by his death hath destroyed death, and by his rising to life again hath restored to us everlasting life.
