Looking for prayers to a specific Saint - Sequentia - 05-02-2016

I'm wondering if anyone can help me find any prayers online to St.Edmund the Martyr (or King of East Anglia)...I have tried googling to find some but have come out empty.

Here's a couple:

O God of ineffable mercy, you gave grace and fortitude to blessed Edmund the king to triumph over the enemy of his people by nobly dying for your Name: Bestow on us your servants the shield of faith with which we can withstand the assaults of our ancient enemy; through Jesus Christ our Redeemer, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

This next one feel like an old 1970s ICEL translation, but I can't find a better one:

The Edmund Prayer

Christ Jesus,
with the life and martyrdom of St Edmund,
King of East Anglia,
you inspired generations of pilgrims
in the way of love and hope.
Enfold your Church in the mystery of your life,
that we, in our own pilgrimage,
may be apostles of your wounded and risen glory,
who with the Father and the Spirit,
are present eternally. Amen.
