Being risen, blesse and praie thus:

GOd be mercifull vnto me, and blesse me this daie and euer; and shew me the light of his countenance, and be mercifull vnto me; that I may knowe his way vpon earth, and his sauing health among all nations. God, euen our owne God giue mee his continuall grace, peace, mercie, and blessing.

And I beseech thee, O Lord Iesu Christ, which being reuiued from death to life, broughtest againe to mor∣tall men, that most desired and greatlie longed for daie which the Lord made. Grant that I, being now raised vp from the death of sinnes, to the life of grace, may walke in all Christian obedience: and at the last daie of the resurrection of all flesh, when thou shalt be made manifest in our life, I also may then be openly known, and appeere before thee in glorie; and ioifullie triumph ouer sinne, death and hell; saieng: O death, where is thy sting? O graue, where is thy victorie? Thanks be vnto GOD, which hath raised me from the death of sleepe, and giuen me victorie ouer all mine enimies, through our Lord Iesus Christ, So be it.

Blessed, holie, and happie for euer is he, that hath part in the first resurrection: for on such the second death hath no power.
