King Edward the Confessor

Edward Rex

Bayeux Tapestry, scene 1: Edward Rex meets Harold Godwinson. From Wikipedia

O God, who art the King of kings and Lord of lords: Give grace, we beseech thee, to the earthly rulers of thy people, that they, following the example of King Edward the Confessor, may receive with him a crown of glory that fadeth not away; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, who didst bestow upon thy Blessed King Edward the crown of everlasting glory : grant us, we pray thee; so to venerate him on earth, that we may be found worthy to reign with him in heaven; through Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, who didst call Saint Edward the confessor from the tottering eminence of an earthly realm, to rest in the secure glory of thy heavenly kingdom: Keep us safe along the road upon which he went, and bring us also unscathed before the throne of the King of kings, Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord. Amen.
