A Gelasian Holy Week Collect

A collect from the Gelasian Sacramentary put into English by Thomas Cranmer:

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, 
which of thy tender love toward man, 
hast sent our Saviour Jesus Christ, 
to take upon him our flesh, 
and to suffer death upon the Cross, 
that all mankind should follow the example of his great humility; 
mercifully grant that we both follow the example of his patience, 
and be made partakers of his Resurrection; 
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
