give us grace to cast away the works of darkness
and to put on the armour of light,

in which your Son Jesus Christ
came to us in great humility; that on the last day,

to judge the living and the dead,
we may rise to the life immortal;
through him who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
