remember not my sin; deliver me from going down to the pit, for thou hast found a ransom.
O Son of David, have mercy on me; Lord Jesus, do thou help me; for even the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their master's table: Have patience with me, and what shall thy servant say? That I will pay thee all ? O no! I most truly and sorrowfully do confess, that I have nothing at all to pay; forgive me, therefore, this whole debt, I beseech thee.
Forget me not, O Lord, for ever; how long wilt thou hide thy face from me ?
How long shall I seek counsel in my soul, and be so vexed in my
heart; how long shall mine enemies triumph over me?
Consider and here me, O Lord my God, lighten my eyes, that I sleep not in death;
Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him: For if I be cast down, they that trouble me will rejoice at it; but my trust is in thy mercy.

In bodily adoration, and spiritual worship, confined to thee alone:
In an awful regard to oaths, in strict truth, and cautious conversation, in blessings, intercessions, and good wishes : In diligent attendance at religious

In dutiful demeanour and submission to superiors; in peace and unity, with regard to Church and State; in tender affection to kindred and allies :
In gentleness and meekness, in patience and forgiveness, in general good will, and an engaging conversation :
