praise and magnify thy glorious Name. And we humbly pray, that the devout sense of this thy repeated mercy may renew, and increase in us, a spirit of love and thankfulness to thee its only Author. Continue thy goodness and loving kindness to us, and make thy spiritual blessings more abundant than thy temporal; that we, obeying thy will, and alway living in safety under thy protection, may abide in thy love and favour unto our lives end; and, after death, obtain everlasting glory in the kingdom of heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Our Father which art in heaven, &c.

FRIDAY MORNING.

Let Israel rejoice in Him that made him: and let the children of Sion be joyful in their King.

PSALM 103.

PRAISE the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me praise his holy Name.

2 Praise the Lord, O my soul: and forget not all his benefits;

3 Who forgiveth all thy sin and healeth all thine infirmities;

4 Who saveth thy life from destruction: and crowneth thee with mercy and lovingkindness;

5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things: making thee young and lusty as an eagle.

6 The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all them that are oppressed with wrong.

7 He shewed his ways unto Moses his works unto the children of Israel.

8 The Lord is full of compassion and mercy long suffering, and of great goodness.

9 He will not alway be chiding: neither keepeth he his anger for ever.

10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins: nor rewarded us according to our wickedness.

11 For look how high the heaven is in comparison of the earth: so great is his mercy also toward them that fear him.

12 Look how wide also the east is from the west so far hath he set our sins from us.

13 Yea, like as a father pitieth his own children even so is the Lord merciful unto them that fear him.

14 For he knoweth whereof we are made: he remembereth that we are but dust.

15 The days of man are but as grass: for he flourisheth as a flower of the field.

16 For as soon as the wind goeth over it, it is gone and the place thereof shall know

it no more.

17 But the merciful goodness of the Lord endureth for ever and ever upon them that fear him and his righteousness upon children's children;

18 Even upon such as keep his covenant: and think upon his commandments to do them.

19 The Lord hath prepared his seat in heaven and his kingdom ruleth over all.

20 O praise the Lord, ye angels of his, ye that excel in strength: ye that fulfil his commandment, and hearken unto the voice of his words.

с

21 O praise the Lord, all ye

his hosts: ye

servants of his that do his pleasure.

22 O speak good of the Lord, all ye works of his, in all places of his dominion: praise thou the Lord, O my soul.

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.

MOST gracious God, the Author and Giver of all good things, we yield thee unfeigned thanks and praise for thy great and manifold mercies to us. We bless thee for

our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life; but above all, for thine inestimable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ; for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory. In the days of childhood and youth, in the midst of weakness, blindness, and danger, thou hast protected us; amidst afflictions of mind and body [and estate,] thou hast sup

ported us; and amidst vanity and wickedness thou hast spared us. Grant us so to acknowledge thy goodness, and so to remember thy gifts, that every day which thou shalt yet allow us may be employed in the amendment of our lives, and in the diligent discharge of all our duties; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

LORD, from whom all good things do come; Grant to us thy humble servants, that by thy holy inspiration we may think those things that be good, and by thy merciful guiding may perform the same; through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

ALMIGHTY God, who alone canst order the unruly wills and affections of sinful men; Grant unto thy people, that they may love the thing which thou commandest, and desire that which thou dost promise; that so among the sundry and manifold changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found. Give us grace to mortify all worldly and carnal lusts, to cast away the works of darkness,

c 2
