And in one Lord Jesus Chrift, the only-begotten Son of God, Begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, Very God of Very God, Begotten, not made, Consubftantial with the Father, By whom all things were made: Who for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, And was made Man, And was cruci
fied also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried, And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, And ascended into heaven, And fitteth on the right hand of the Father; And he shall coine again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead: Whose kingdom shall have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord, the giver of life, Who proceedeth from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, Who spake by the Prophets. And I believe one Catholick and Apoftolick Church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Do thou, O Lord Almighty, everlasting God, so gather together thy church from the ends of the earth into thy kingdom, as this corn was once scattered, but is now collected together and become one piece of bread. N 2
We thank thee also, O Father, for the precious Blood of Jesus Christ which was fhed for us, and for his precious Body, the Representation of which we here celebrate with these Antitypes, as himself hath appointed, to fhew forth his death. Glory be to thee through him for ever and ever. Amen.
Then the Priest or Deacon shall say to the People,
Let us fervently and intensely pray to God through his Christ. Then the People shall kneel down, and the Priest Mall

stitution of thy dearly beloved Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, we thy humble servants do celebrate and make here before thy divine majesty, with these thy Holy Gifts, the Memorial which thy Son hath commanded us to make, having in remembrance his blessed passion, mighty resurrection, and glorious ascension; rendering unto thee most hearty thanks for the innumerable benefits procured unto us by the same; entirely defiring thy fatherly goodness mercifully to accept this our facrifice of praise and thanksgiving ; most humbly beseeching thee to grant, that by the merits and death of thy Son Jesus Christ, and through faith in his blood, we and all thy whole church may obtain remission of our sins, and all other benefits of his passion. And here we offer and present unto thee, O Lord, our felves, our souls, and bodies, to be a reasonable, holy, and lively sacrifice unto thee; humbly beseeching thee, that whosoever shall partake of these mystick blessings of the most precious body and blood of thy Son Jesus Chrift, may worthily receive the fame, and
may be fulfilled with thy grace and heavenly benediction. And although we are unworthy through our manifold fins to offer unto thee any facrifice

Amen. Then mall the Priest say the following prayer of
intercesion, ALmighty and ever-living God, who by thy holy

Give grace, O heavenly Father, to all Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, that they may both by their life and doctrine set forth thy true and lively word, and rightly and duly administer thy holy facraments. We beseech thee also to save and defend all christian kings, princes, and governours; and especially thy servant our King, that under him we may be godly and quietly governed: and grant unto his whole Council, and to all that are put in authority under him, that they may truly and indifferently minister justice, to the punishment of wickedness and vice, and to the maintainance of thy true religion and virtue.
