Autumn (Holyrood) Ember Day: I

Sebastiaan Vrancx (studio) Autumn

Autumn, by the studio of Sebastiaan Vrancx (1573–1647). From Wikipedia.

O Lord Jesus Christ, who in thy earthly life didst share man’s toil, and thereby hallow the labour of his hands: Prosper all those who maintain the industries of this land; and give them pride in their work, a just reward for their labour, and joy both in supplying the needs of others and in serving thee their Saviour; who with the Father and the Holy Spirit livest and reignest, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Given in the 1926 Canadian BCP as an autumn ember collect “For Labour and Industry”.
