O LORDE whiche doeste teache us that all our doynges withoute charitie are nothyng woorthe; sende thy holy ghost, and powre into our heartes that most excellent gyft of charitie, the very bond of peace and al vertues, without the whiche whosoever liveth is counted dead before thee: Graunte this for thy onlye sonne, Jesus Christes sake.
Collect for the Sonday called Quinquagesima 1549 BCP
whose Son was revealed in majesty
before he suffered death upon the cross:
Give us grace to perceive his glory,
that we may be strengthened to suffer with him
and be changed into his likeness, from glory to glory;
who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
