Easter Eve Year A

Collect One

Grant, O Lord,
that as we are baptized into the death
of thy blessed Son our Saviour Jesus Christ,
so by continual mortifying our corrupt affections
we may be buried with him;
and that, through the grave, and gate of death,
we may pass to our joyful resurrection;
for his merits, who died, and was buried,
and rose again for us,
thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Collect Two

Grant, Lord,
that we who are baptized into the death
of your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ
may continually put to death our evil desires
and be buried with him;
and that through the grave and gate of death
we may pass to our joyful resurrection;
through his merits, who died and was buried
and rose again for us,
your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
