And let thy Passion pardon win
For what we have offended in
Thought, or word, or deed of sin.
And as thy mercy wipes away
What we have done amiss to-day,
So now that night returns again
Our bodies and our souls refrain
From spot or taint of sinful stain.
Let not dull sleep oppress our eyes,
Nor us the enemy surprise;

Nor fearful dreams our minds affright,
While the blackness of the night
Holds from us the cheerful light.
To thee who dost by rest renew
Our wasted strength, we humbly sue
That when we shall unclose our eyes
Pure and chaste we may arise
To make our morning sacrifice.
Honour, Lord, to thee be done,
O thou Blessed Virgin's Son,
With the Father and the Spirit,
As is thine eternal merit,

Ever and ever to inherit. Amen.

PRAYER.

LMIGHTY Father, Everlasting God, I A thank thee for that thou of thine in

finite goodness hast guarded me thine unworthy servant in safety and peace through this day, and hast protected me from the snares of the enemies both of my body and of my soul. And I pray thee that whatsoever sin I have committed to-day against thy precepts and commandments, by thought

by speech .... or by deed. this thou wilt wholly remit and pardon, of thy Fatherly kindness. Moreover, I pray and implore thee that thou wilt protect me

through this night too under the shadow of thy wings, and that of the same thy goodness and grace thou wilt mercifully defend and keep me from all danger of body and of soul, that my eyes may sleep in peace, my body may rest in safety, and my soul may ever watch for thee; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord. Amen.

LIGHTEN our darkness, we beseech thee, Lord, and by thy great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night, for the love of thine only Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

Behold he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord guardeth thee, the Lord is thy protection.

The sun shall not burn thee by day, neither the moon by night.

Iwill lay me down in peace and take my rest. (Heremay be said any of the subjoined prayers, p. 45, &c.)

IN THE MORNING.

LORD God Almighty, to whom and before whom all things are manifest and plain, who sufferest not a sparrow to light on the ground without thy providence, and who in times past by thy Holy Spirit didst guide our forefathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, in thy paths and ways; and against the going of young Tobias into a strange country didst provide thy holy Angel

and messenger to be his guide: Grant unto me a sinner, whom by thy word thou dost encourage to call upon thee in all times of need and of necessity, that I may have thy Holy Spirit so to direct my paths and ways this day, that I may walk according to thy godly will and pleasure, to the profit of my neighbour, and the glory of thy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

AT UPRISING.

LORD Jesu Christ, who art the very bright Sun of the world, ever rising, never setting, who with thy glad look engenderest, preservest, nourishest, and makest joyful all things that are in Heaven and earth: Shine favourably, I beseech thee, into my spirit, that the night of sin and mists of error being driven away by thy inward light I may walk all my life without stumbling and offence, seemly as in the daytime, being pure from the works of darkness. Grant this, O Lord, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

BEFORE GOING TO BED.

LORD, who art only God, true, gracious, and merciful, who commandest them that love thy Name to cast fear and care from them, and to cast it upon thee, promising most mercifully thyself to be their protector from their enemies, their refuge in danger, their governor in the day, their light in darkness, and their guardian in the
