of the next; and that we may join in the worship of thy Church with such stediness of faith, with such seriousness, affection, and devotion of mind, that thou mayest accept our bounden duty and service, and vouchsafe to give whatever in thine infinite wisdom thou shalt see to be most expedient for us. Bless to us also the reading and preaching of thy Word, and sow in our hearts the seed of eternal life; that whatsoever in the Holy Scriptures we shall profitably learn we may indeed fulfil the same, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

LORD Jesu Christ, who at thy first coming didst send thy messenger to prepare thy way before thee; Grant that the ministers and stewards of thy mysteries may likewise so prepare and make ready thy way, by turning the hearts of the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; that at thy second coming to judge the world, we may be found an acceptable people in thy sight, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, by

whose Spirit the whole body of the Church is governed and sanctified; receive our supplications and prayers, which we offer before thee for all estates of men in thy Holy Church; that every member of the same, in his vocation and ministry, may truly and godly serve thee. Make, we beseech thee, all Bishops and Pastors diligently to preach thy Holy Word, and the people obediently to follow the same, that they may receive the crown of everlasting glory, through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen.

LESSED Lord, who hast caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning; Grant that we may in such wise hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that by patience, and comfort of thy Holy Word, we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which thou hast given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen,

OUR Father, which art in heaven, Hal

lowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.

And

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil : For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

THE grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and

the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost, be with us all evermore. Amen.

SUNDAY EVENING.

Let my prayer be set forth in thy sight as the incense and let the lifting up of my hands be an evening sacrifice.

PSALM 92.

T is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord; and to sing praises unto thy Name, O Most Highest ;

2 To tell of thy loving kindness early in the morning: and of thy truth in the night-season;

3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and

upon the lute: upon a loud instrument, and upon the harp.

4 For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy works: and I will rejoice in giving praise for the operations of thy hands.

5 O Lord, how glorious are thy works: thy thoughts are very deep.

6 An unwise man doth not well consider this and a fool doth not understand it.

7 When the ungodly are green as the grass, and when all the workers of wickedness do flourish: then shall they be destroyed for ever; but thou, Lord, art the Most Highest for evermore.

8 For lo, thine enemies, O Lord, lo, thine enemies shall perish and all the workers of wickedness shall be destroyed.

9 But mine horn shall be exalted like the horn of an unicorn: for I am anointed with fresh oil.

10 Mine eye also shall see his lust of mine enemies: and mine ear shall hear his desire of the wicked that arise up against me. 11 The righteous shall flourish like a palm-tree and shall spread abroad like a cedar in Libanus.

[ocr errors]

12 Such as are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of the house of our God.

13 They also shall bring forth more fruit in their age and shall be fat and well-liking.

14 That they may shew how true the Lord my strength is: and that there is no unrighteousness in him.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end.

Let us pray.

Amen.

GRANT, we beseech thee, Almighty

God, that the words, which we have heard this day with our outward ears, may through thy grace be so grafted inwardly in our hearts, that they may bring forth in us the fruit of a holy and religious life, to the honor and praise of thy name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
