Almighty God, who hast given thy only Son to be unto us both a sacrifice for sin and also an example
of godly life: Give us grace that we may always most thankfully receive that his inestimable benefit,
and also daily endeavor ourselves to follow the blessed steps of his most holy life;
through the same Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee
and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
