Original text and translations
Almighty God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness,
and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life
in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day,
when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the quick and the dead,
we may rise to the life immortal; through him who liveth and reigneth with thee
and the Holy Ghost, now and ever. Amen
