| Remember them on the great day of Thy coming in Thy Kingdom, make them worthy of Thy mercy, expiation, and forgiveness of sins; number them and glorify them among Thy saints who will be assembled at Thy right hand. For Thou art Lord and creator of all beings, and Judge of the living and the dead, And to Thee are due Glory, power and honour, now and ever, and unto unending times. Amen.
Blessed be our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
OUR Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory, unto the ages. Amen.
