We then remembering too, O sovereign LORD, in the presence of Thy holy mysteries,
the salutary passion of Thy CHRIST,
His life-giving cross,
resurrection from the dead,
ascent into heaven,
session at the right hand of Thee, the FATHER,
His fearful and glorious coming;
we beseech Thee, O LORD,
that we, receiving in the pure testimony,
of our conscience,
our portion of Thy sacred things,
may be made one with the holy Body and Blood of Thy CHRIST;
and receiving them not unworthily,
hold CHRIST indwelling in our hearts,
of Thy HOLY SPIRIT.
nor make any of us guilty
of Thy dreadful and heavenly mysteries,
from partaking of them unworthily.
until our last and closing breath worthily to receive a hope of Thy holy things, for sanctification, enlightening, strengthening,
a relief of the weight of my many sins, a preservative against all satanic working, a riddance and hindrance of my evil conscience, a mortification of my passions,
an appropriation of Thy commandments,
and a securing of Thy kingdom.
It is finished and done,
so far as in our power,
the mystery of Thy dispensation. For we have held remembrance of Thy death, we have seen the figure of Thy resurrection, we have been filled with Thy endless life, we have enjoyed Thy uncloying dainties, which graciously vouchsafe all of us, in the world to come.
LORD, the good God,
that purifieth his heart to seek God,
the LORD GOD of His fathers,
though he be not cleansed
according to the purification of the sanctuary.
