Psalm xxv. UN NTO Thee, O Lord, will I lift up my soul ;

my God, I have put my trust in Thee : 0 let me not be confounded, neither let mine enemies (my sins) triumph over me.

For all they that hope in Thee shall not be ashamed : but such as transgress without a cause shall be put to confusion.

His way

For Thy Name's sake, O Lord : be merciful unto my sin, for it is great.

His soul shall dwell at ease : and his seed shall inherit the land.

The secret of the Lord is among them that fear Him : and He will shew them His covenant.

Mine eyes are ever looking unto the Lord : for He shall pluck my feet out of the net.

IN MY BAPTISM I did renounce the Devil and all his works, the pomps and vanity of this wicked world, and all the sinful lusts of the flesh,

And I did promise (God being my helper) to keep His holy will and commandments, and to walk in the same all the days of my life.

The Articles of the Christian Faith. I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried, He descended into Hell; The third day He rose again from the dead, He ascended into Heaven, And sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; The Holy Catholic Church; The Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness of Sins; The Resurrection of the Body, And the Life Everlasting. Amen.

Let us pray:

| All kneeling.

For Conversion from Sin. O 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 Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

For Pardon. O LORD, we beseech Thee favourably to hear

the prayers of Thy people; that we, who are justly punished for our offences, may be mercifully delivered by Thy goodness, for the glory of Thy Name; through Jesus Christ our Saviour, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

For Purity. O GOD, whose. Blessed Son was manifested

that He might destroy the works of the devil, and make us the sons of God, and heirs of eternal life; Grant us, we beseech Thee, that, having this hope, we may purify ourselves, even as He is pure; that, when He shall appear again with power and great glory, we may be made like unto Him in His eternal and glorious kingdom; where with Thee, O Father, and Thee, O Holy Ghost, He liveth and reigneth, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Final Prayers.
Be Thou, O LORD,
Within me to strengthen me,
Without me to guard me,

Over me to shelter me,
Beneath me to stablish me,

Before me to guide me,

After me to forward me,
Round about me to secure me,

Now and evermore.
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.



BE not deceived : evil communications corrupt

good manners. sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to


shame. 1 Cor. xv. 33, 34.

AWAKE, my soul, and with the sun
Thy daily stage of duty run;
Shake off dull sloth, and early rise,
To pay thy morning sacrifice.
Redeem thy mispent moments past,
And live this day as if the last;
Thy talents to improve take care;
For the great day thyself prepare.
Let all thy converse be sincere,
Thy conscience as the noon-day clear;
For God's all-seeing eye surveys
Thy secret thoughts, thy works and ways.
Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart,
And with the angels bear thy part;
Who all night long unwearied sing
High glory to th' eternal King.
Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, angelic host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
