Collect One

O God, the protector of all that trust in thee,
without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy;
Increase and multiply upon us thy mercy;

we may so pass through things temporal,
that we finally lose not the things eternal:
Grant this, O heavenly Father,
for Jesus Christ's sake our Lord.

Collect Two

O God, the protector of all who trust in you,
without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:

Grant this, heavenly Father,
for Jesus Christ's sake, our Lord.
