O most merciful Father, we humbly thank thee for all thy gifts so freely bestowed upon us: for life and health and safety, for power to work and leisure to rest, for all that is beautiful in creation and in the lives of men; but above all we thank thee for our spiritual mercies in Christ Jesus our Lord; who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Prefaces

Who, with thine only-begotten Son, and the Holy Ghost, art one God, one Lord, in Trinity of Persons and in Unity of Substance. For that which we believe of thy glory, O Father, the same we believe of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, without any difference of inequality.

or

Because the wonders of thy Creation reflect thy goodness and beauty, and thy gifts of sun and rain, seed-time and harvest manifest thy continual care and love for all that thou hast made.
