 The Collect: God our redeemer; you have delivered us from the power of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of your Son: grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life,  so by his continual presence in us he may raise us to eternal joy; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.


 The Additional Collect: Risen Christ, by the lakeside you renewed your call to your disciples: help your church to obey your command and draw the nations to the fire of your love, to the glory of God the Father
