Historic Collects for Easter Day

Almighty God,
on this day you conquered death
and opened to us the gate of eternal life
through your only Son.
As you put good desires in our minds,
help us to carry them out in our actions;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.

Almighty God,
grant that we who celebrate your Paschal feast
may be kindled with heavenly desires
and thirst for the fountain of life;
Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.

Almighty God,
grant that we who celebrate the solemnities
of the Lord’s resurrection
may rise again from the death of the soul
by the renewal of your Holy Spirit;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.

O God,
for our redemption you gave your only Son,
Jesus Christ,
to suffer death on the cross,
and by his glorious resurrection
you have delivered us from the power of the enemy.
May we die to sin daily
so that we may always live with him
in the joy of his resurrection;
Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
