O God,

Who on this Day

may, through the renewal brought by your Spirit,
rise up in the light of life.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ,

who lives and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God,

for ever and ever.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, 
Thy will be done
on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Amen.
