Original text and translations
Almighty God, whose praise this day the young innocents thy witnesses
have confessed and shewed forth, not in speaking but in dying:
mortify and kill all vices in us, that in our conversation our life may express thy faith
which with our tongues we do confess, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
