Präfation zur Krönung eines Königs

In der Liturgie zur Krönung von König Karl II. von England, die als "Eucharist" gefeiert wurde, gab es diese Präfation (Quelle):

It is very meet, right, and our bounden duty, that we should at all times and in all places give thanks unto thee, O Lord, holy Father, almighty, everlasting God, through Jesus Christ thine only Son our Lord;

who hast at this time consecrated thy servant N. to be our King, that, by the anointing of thy grace, he may be the Defender of thy Faith and the Protector of thy people; that, with him, we may learn the ways of service, compassion, and love, and that the good work which thou hast begun in him this day may be brought to completion in the day of Jesus Christ.

Therefore with angels and archangels, and with all the company of heaven, we laud and magnify thy glorious name, evermore praising thee and saying: (Sanctus)
