PRAYER: Prayer For Easter by Lancelot Andrewes

Prayer For Easter by Lancelot Andrewes

Oracles of Prophets,
melody of Psalms,
instruction of Proverbs,
experience of Histories.

God is the Lord who hath shewed us light;
bind the sacrifice with cords,
yea even unto the horns of the altar.

O by thy Resurrection raise us up unto newness of life,
helping us to shew forth a conversation meet for repentance.

The God of peace,
who did bring again from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep,
through the blood of the everlasting covenant,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
make us perfect in every good work,
to do his will,
working in us that which is well-pleasing in his sight,
through Jesus Christ,
to whom be glory forever and ever.

Amen.
