Upon the Feast of Whitsunday, and six days after.
THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord; according to whose most true promise, the Holy Ghost came down as at this time from heaven, lighting upon the Apostles, to teach them, and to lead them into all truth; giving them boldness with fervent zeal constantly to preach the Gospel unto all nations; whereby we have been brought out of darkness and error into the clear light and true knowledge of thee, and of thy Son Jesus Christ.
Upon the Feast of Trinity only. For that which we believe of thy glory, O Father, the same we believe of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, without any difference of inequality. WHO, in the multitude of thy saints, hast compassed us about with so great a cloud of witnesses that we, rejoicing in their fellowship, may run with patience the race that is set before us, and together with them may receive the crown of glory that fadeth not away. ALL glory be to thee, Almighty God, our heavenly Father, for that thou, of thy tender mercy, didst give thine only Son Jesus Christ to suffer death upon the Cross for our redemption; who made there by his one oblation of himself once offered a full, perfect, and sufficient sacrifice, oblation, and satisfaction, for the sins of the whole world; and did institute, and in his holy Gospel command us to continue, a perpetual memory of that his precious death and sacrifice, until his coming again: For in the night in which he was betrayed, a he took Bread; and when he had given thanks, b he brake it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, Take, eat, c this is my Body, which is given for you; Do this in remembrance of me.
Likewise, after supper, d he took the Cup; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of this; for e this is my Blood of the New Testament, which is shed for you, and for many, for the remission of sins; Do this, as oft as ye shall drink it, in remembrance of me.
WHEREFORE O Lord and heavenly Father, according to the institution of thy dearly beloved Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, we, thy humble servants, do celebrate and make here before thy Divine Majesty, with these thy holy gifts, which we now offer unto thee, the memorial thy Son hath commanded us to make; having in remembrance his blessed passion and precious death, his mighty resurrection and glorious ascension; rendering unto thee most hearty thanks for the innumerable benefits procured unto us by the same.
AND we earnestly desire thy fatherly goodness, mercifully to accept this our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving; most humbly beseeching thee to grant that, by the merits and death of thy Son Jesus Christ, and through faith in his blood, we, and all thy whole Church, may obtain remission of our sins, and all other benefits of his passion. And here we offer and present unto thee, O Lord, our selves, our souls and bodies, to be a reasonable, holy, and living sacrifice unto thee; humbly beseeching thee, that we, and all others who shall be partakers of this Holy Communion, may worthily receive the most precious Body and Blood of thy Son Jesus Christ, be filled with thy grace and heavenly benediction, and made one body with him, that he may dwell in us, and we in him.
And although we are unworthy, through our manifold sins, to offer unto thee any sacrifice; yet we beseech thee to accept this our bounden duty and service; not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offences, through Jesus Christ our Lord; by whom, and with whom, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, all honour and glory be unto thee, O Father Almighty, world without end. Thy will be done, on earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil.

Preface (liturgy) - Wikipedia
Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. Glory to thee, 0 Lord, in the highest. This the Clerks shall also sing. When the Clerks have done singing, then shall the Priest or Deacon turn him to the people, and say: Let us pray for the whole state of Christ's Church. Then the priest, turning him to the altar, shall say or sing, plainly and distinctly, this prayer following: Almighty and everliving God, which by thy holy apostle hast taught us to make prayers, and supplications, and to give thanks for all men; We humbly beseech thee most mercifully to receive these our prayers, which we offer unto thy divine Majesty; beseeching thee to inspire continually the universal church with the spirit of truth, unity, and concord: Specially we beseech thee to save and defend thy servant Edward our king; that under him we may be godly and quietly governed; and grant unto his whole council, and to all that be put in authority under him, that they may truly and indifferently minister justice, to the punishment of wickedness and vice, and to the maintenance of God's true religion and virtue.
Give grace, O heavenly Father, to all bishops, pastors and curates that they may both by their life and doctrine set forth thy true and lively word, and rightly and duly administer thy holy sacraments.
And to all thy people give thy heavenly grace; that with meek heart and due reverence, they may hear and receive thy holy word; truly serving thee in holiness and righteousness all the days of their life. And we most humbly beseech thee of thy goodness, O Lord, to comfort and succour all them, which in this transitory life be in trouble, sorrow, need, sickness, or any other adversity.
And especially we commend unto thy merciful goodness this congregation, which is here assembled in thy name, to celebrate the commemoration of the most glorious death of thy son.
And here we do give unto thee most high praise, and hearty thanks, for the wonderful grace and virtue declared in thy saints, from the beginning of the world. We commend unto thy mercy, O Lord, all other thy servants, which are departed hence from us with the sign of faith, and now do rest in the sleep of peace: O God, heavenly Father, which of thy tender mercy didst give thine only Son Jesu Christ to suffer death upon the cross for our redemption; who made there, by his one oblation once offered, a full, perfect, and sufficient sacrifice, oblation, and satisfaction, for the sins of the whole world; and did institute, and in his holy gospel command us to celebrate a perpetual memory of that his precious death, until his coming again: Likewise after supper he took the cup,' and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of this; for this is my blood of the new Testament, which is shed for you and for many for remission of sins.
Do this, as oft as you shall drink it, in remembrance of me. These words before rehearsed are to be said, turning still to the altar, without any elevation or shewing the sacrament to the people. Wherefore, O Lord and heavenly Father, according to the institution of thy dearly beloved Son our Saviour Jesu Christ, we thy humble servants do celebrate and make here before thy divine Majesty, with these thy holy gifts, the memorial which thy Son hath willed us to make; having in remembrance his blessed passion, mighty resurrection, and glorious ascension; rendering unto thee most hearty thanks for the innumerable benefits procured unto us by the same; entirely desiring thy fatherly goodness mercifully to accept this our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving; most humbly beseeching thee to grant, that by the merits and death of thy Son Jesus Christ and through faith in his blood, we and all thy whole church may obtain remission of our sins, and all other benefits of his passion.
And here we offer and present unto thee, O Lord, our self, our souls and bodies, to be a reasonable, holy, and lively sacrifice unto thee; humbly beseeching thee, that whosoever shall be partakers of this holy communion may worthily receive the most precious body and blood of thy Son Jesus Christ, and be fulfilled with thy grace and heavenly benediction, and made one body with thy Son Jesu Christ, that he may dwell in them, and they in him.
And although we be unworthy, through 1. Here the priest must take the bread into his hands. If any man say I am a grievous sinner, and therefore am afraid to come: When God calleth you, are ye not ashamed to say, you will not come? When ye should returne to God, will ye excuse your selves, and say ye are not ready? Consider earnestly with your selves, how little such feigned excuses will avail before God. They that refused the feast in the Gospell, because they had bought a farm, or would try their Yokes of Oxen, or because they were marryed, were not so excused, but counted unworthy of the heavenly feast.
I for my part shall be ready, and according to mine office, I bid you in the name of God, I call you in Christs behalfe, I exhort you, as ye love your own salvation, that ye will be partakers of this holy Communion. And as the son of God did vouchsafe to yeild up his Soule by death upon the Cross for your salvation: Which if ye shall neglect to do, consider with your selves how great injury ye do unto God, and how sore punishment hangeth over your heads for the same; when ye wilfully abstain from the Lords Table, and separate from your brethren, who come to feed on the banquet of that most heavenly food.
These things if ye earnestly consider, ye will by Gods grace returne to a better mind: Dearly beloved in the Lord, ye that mind to come to the holy Communion of the Body and Blood of our Saviour Christ, must consider how Saint Paul exhorteth all persons diligently to try and examine themselves, before they presume to eat of that Bread, and drink of that Cup.
For as the benefitt is great, if with a true penitent heart, and lively faith we receive that holy Sacrament for then we spiritually eate the flesh of Christ, and drink his Blood, then we dwell in Christ, and Christ in us, we are one with Christ, and Christ with us: So is the danger great, if we receive the same unworthily, for then we are guilty of the body and blood of Christ our Saviour: Judge therefore your selves, brethren, that ye be not judged of the Lord.
Repent you truly for your sins past: Amend your lives, and be in perfect Charity with all men, so shall ye be meet partakers of those holy mysteries.
And above all things ye must give most humble and hearty thanks to God the Father, the Son and the holy Ghost, for the redemption of the world by the death and passion of our saviour Christ, both God and Man, who did humble himselfe even to the death upon the Cross, for us miserable sinners; who lay in darkness and the shadow of death, that he might make us the children of God, and exalt us to everlasting life.
And to the end that we should alway remember the exceeding great love of our Master, and only Saviour, Jesus Christ, thus dyeing for us, and the innumerable benefits which by his pretious bloodshedding he hath obteined to us: To him therefore with the Father and the holy Ghost, let us give, as we are most bounden continuall thanks, submitting our selves wholly to his holy Will and pleasure, and studying to serve him in true holiness and righteousness all the dayes of our life.
Ye that do truly and earnestly repent you of your Sins and are in love and charity with your neighbours, and intend to lead a new life, following the Commandments of God, and walking from henceforth in his holy wayes, Draw neer with faith, and take this holy Sacrament to your Comfort: Then shall this generall Confession be made in the Name of all those that are minded to receive the holy Communion, by one of the ministers, both he and all the people kneeling humbly upon their knees and saying.
Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Maker of all things, Judge of all men, We acknowledge and bewail Our manifold Sins and Wickednes, Which we from time to time Most grievously have committed, By thought, word and deed, Against thy divine Majesty, Provoking most justly Thy wrath and indignation against us. We do earnestly repent, And are heartily sorry for these our misdoings, The remembrance of them is grievous unto us, The burthen of them is intolerable.
Have mercy upon us, Have mercy upon us most mercifull Father; For thy son our Lord Jesus Christs sake, Forgive us all that is past, And grant that we may ever hereafter Serve and please thee In newnes of life, To the honour and glory of thy name, Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Almighty God our heavenly Father, who of his great mercy hath promised forgiveness of sins to all them that with hearty repentance and true faith turn unto him: So God loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, to the end that all that beleeve in him should not perish but have everlasting life.
If any man sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous, and he is the propitiation for our sins. Lift up your hearts.
We lift them up unto the Lord. Let us give thancks unto our Lord God Answer. It is meet and right so to do. It is very meet, right, and our bounden duty, that we should att all tymes and in all places, give thanks unto thee, O Lord, Holy Father, Almighty everlasting God. Glory be to thee, O Lord most high. Because thou didst give Jesus Christ thine only Son to be born as at this time for us, who by the operation of the holy Ghost, was made very man of the substance of the Virgin Mary his Mother, and that without spot of sin, to make us clean from all sin.
But chiefly are we bound to prayse thee for the glorious Resurrection of thy son Jesus Christ our Lord, for he is the very paschal Lamb which was offered for us, and hath taken away the sin of the world, who by his death hath destroyed death, and by his riseing to life againe, hath restored to us everlasting life. Through thy most dearly beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who after his most glorious resurrection manifestly appeared to all his Apostles, and in their sight ascended up into heaven, to prepare a place for us; that where he is, thither we might also ascend, and reign with him in Glory.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, according to whose most true promise the holy Ghost came down, as at this time, from heaven with a sudden great sound, as it had been a mighty wind, in the likeness of fiery Tongues lighting upon the Apostles to teach them, and to lead them to all truth, giving them both the gift of divers languages, and alsoe boldness with fervent zeal, constantly to preach the Gospell unto all Nations, whereby we have been brought out of darknes, and errour into the cleer light, and true knowledge of thee, and of thy son Jesus Christ.
Who art one God, one Lord, not one only person, but three persons in one substance.
For that which we beleeve of the glory of the Father, the same we beleeve of the son, and of the holy Ghost, without any difference or inequality. Glory be to thee, O Lord most High.
Eucharistic Prayers for Order One in traditional language
We do not presume to come to this thy Table O mercifull Lord trusting in our own righteousnes, but in thy manifold, and great mercyes. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the Crumb. But thou art the same Lord, whose property is alwayes to have mercy: These words, holy Father, must be omitted on Trinitie Sunday. Almighty God, our heavenly Father, who of thy tender mercy didst give thine only son Jesus Christ to suffer death upon the Cross for our redemption, who made there by his one oblation of himselfe once offered a full, perfect, and sufficient Sacrifice, oblation and satisfaction for the sins of the whole World, and did institute and in his holy Gospell comand us to continue a perpetuall memory of that his pretious death, until his coming again: Hear us, O mercifull Father, we most humbly beseech thee, and grant that we receiving these thy Creatures of Bread and Wine, according to thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christs holy Institution, in remembrance of his death and passion, may be partakers of his most blessed body and blood:
