"All we long for is to know the Christ
and the power of his resurrection,
to share in the sufferings of Christ
and become like him in his death.
For anyone united to Christ
the world is new.
The old order has gone;
the new has already begun.
So we press eagerly towards the goal
in order to win the prize,
the call that comes from God
to life with Christ in glory."
—The New Zealand Book of Common Prayer, Collins, (Auckland), 1989, pp 107-108.
