Almighty God, who hast given us thy only begotten Son to take our nature upon him,
and at this time to be born of a pure Virgin:
Grant that we, being regenerate, and made thy children by adoption and grace,
may daily be renewed by thy Holy Spirit;
Through the same our Lord Jesus Christ,
who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Spirit, ever one God,
world without end.
Amen.
