demption through his blood, even the forgiveness of fins.

After the conclufion of the whole action.

Blefs the Lord, O my foul, and all that is within me, blefs his holy name. Blefs the Lord, O my foul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgiveth all thine iniquities, and healeth all thy difeafes; who redeemeth thy life from deftruction, and crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies; who fatisfieth thy mouth with good things. Blefs the Lord, O my foul.

A prayer to be used in private afterwards.

I praise and magnify thy great and glorious name, O Lord, my God, for the bleffed opportunity afforded to me this day, of commemorating thy infinite goodness and mercy to me and all mankind, in fending thy only Son into the world to take our nature upon him, to fubmit to the infirmities and · miferies of it, to live amongst us, and to dy for us: And to preferve the memory of this great love and goodness of thine to us for ever in our hearts, that thou hast been pleafed to appoint the bleffed facrament, for a folemn remembrance of it. Grant, O Lord, that I may faithfully keep and perform that holy covenant which I have this day fo folemnly renewed and confirmed in thy prefence, and at thy table. Let it be an eternal obligation upon me, of perpetual love and obedience to thee. Let nothing feem hard for me to do, or grievous for me to fuffer for thy fake, who whilft I was a finner, and an enemy to thee, lovedft me at fuch a rate as never any man did his friend.

Grant that by this facrament there may be conveyed to my foul new fpiritual life and ftrength, and fuch a measure of thy grace and affiftance, as may enable me to a greater care of my duty for the


future: That I may henceforth live as becomes the redeemed of the Lord; even to him who died for my sins, and rose again for my juftification, and is now fet down on the right hand of the throne of God, to make interceffion for me. In his holy name and words I conclude my imperfect prayers :

OUR Father which art in heaven, hallowed be

thy name. kingdom come. Thy done in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trefpaffes, as we forgive them that have trefpaffed against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil : For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
