You Raised Up the Fallen World

O God,
by the humiliation of your Son
you raised up the fallen world.
Give your faithful people constant gladness,
deliverance from the danger of eternal death,
and make us partakers of eternal joys;
through the same Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
