God, which as upon this day hast taught the hearts of thy faithful people,
by sending to them the light of thy Holy Sp'rit:
Grant us by the same Sp'rit to have a right judgment in all things,
and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort.
Through the merits of Christ Jesus our Saviour,
who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the same Sp'rit,
one God, world without end. Amen.
