Archbishop: O God, the crown of the faithful: Bless we beseech thee and sanctify this thy servant our King: and as thou dost this day set a Crown of pure gold upon his head, so enrich his royal heart with thine abundant grace, and crown him with all princely virtues, through the King eternal Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
(Then the King still sitting in King Edward’s Chair, the Archbishop, assisted with other Bishops, shall come from the Altar: the Dean of Westminster shall bring the Crown, and the Archbishop shall reverently put it upon the King’s head. At the sight whereof the people, with loud and repeated shouts, shall cry):
GOD SAVE THE KING.
(The Peers and the Kings of Arms shall put on their coronets; and the trumpets shall sound, and by a signal given, the great guns at the Tower shall be shot off. The acclamation ceasing, the Archbishop shall go on, and say):
Archbishop: God crown you with a crown of glory and righteousness, that by the ministry of this our benediction, having a right faith and manifold fruit of good works, you may obtain the crown of an everlasting kingdom by the gift of him whose kingdom endureth for ever. Amen.
