The Collect: Lord of all life and power, who through the mighty resurrection of your Son overcame the old order of sin and death to make all things new in him: grant that we, being dead to sin and alive to you in Jesus Christ, may reign with him  in glory; to whom with you and the Holy Spirit be praise and honour, glory and might, now and in all eternity.

The Additional Collect: God of glory, by the raising of your Son you have broken the chains of death and hell: fill your Church with faith and hope; for a new day has dawned and the way to, life stands open in our Saviour Jesus Christ.
