THE OPENING SENTENCES.

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

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise.

and commandment to his ministers, to declare and pro-

Remission of their sins. He pardoneth and absolveth all
those who truly repent, and unfeignedly believe his Holy
Gospel. Wherefore let us beseech Him to grant us true

rest of our life hereafter may be pure and holy; so
that at the last we may come to his eternal joy;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
