The Collect of The Manchester Regiment

O Lord our God, whose name only is excellent
And Thy praise above heaven and earth,
We thank Thee for the men of the Manchester Regiment
Who counted not their lives dear unto themselves
But laid them down for their friends;
Beseeching Thee to give them a part in those good things
Which Thou has prepared for all whose names are written in the Book of Life.
And grant to us, that having them always in remembrance,
We may imitate their faithfulness and with them inherit the new name
Which Thou has promised to them that overcome;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
