The proud, and all their vain designs, Give us this day our daily bread:
He quickly did confound;

Us into no temptation lead :
He cast the mighty from their seat, But with thy grace preserve us still
The meek and humble crown'd.

From sin, and ev'ry thing that's ill;
The hungry with good things were fill'd,

For thine the kingdom, and the pow'r, The rich with hunger pin'd:

And glory are for evermore.
He sent his servant Israel help,
And call'd his love to mind;

Second Metre.
Which to our fathers heretofore

UR Father, who in heaven art, By oath he did ensure,

U All hallow'd be thy Name; To Abr'am and his chosen seed

Thy kingdom come; thy will be done For ever to endure.

Throughout this earthly frame,
NUNC DIMITTIS;

As cheerfully as 'tis by those

Who dwell with thee on high ;
Or, The SONG of Simeon, Luke ii. 29. Lord, let thy bounty day by day
LORD, let thy servant now depart Our daily food supply.
Into thy promis'd rest,

As we forgive our enemies,
Since my expecting eyes have been

Thy pardon, Lord, we crave; With thy salvation blest:

Into temptation lead us not, Which till this time thy favour'd saints But us from evil save. And prophets only knew;

For kingdom, pow'r, and glory, all Long since prepar'd, but now set forth

Belong, O Lord, to thee; In all the people's view.

Thine from eternity they were,
A light to shew the heathen world

And thine shall ever be.
The way to saving grace;
But, O! the light and glory both

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, of Israel's chosen race.

MOD spake these words, O Israel hear, THE CREED.

U What I shall now command; T STEADFASTLY believe in God,

Thy Lord and only God am I, I The Father of all might;

Who with almighty hand Who made this lower world, and all

From Egypt's land, and from the house The glorious worlds of light:

Of bondage set thee free:

And therefore Israel, thou shalt have And I believe in Jesus Christ,

No other God but me.
The everlasting Word;
Th' Almighty Father's only Son,

Thou shalt no graven image make,
And our most gracious Lord.

Nor likeness shalt thou feign, Conceiv'd by th' Holy Ghost, and of

Of any thing that heav'n or earth,

Or wat'ry deeps contain.
The Virgin Mary born;
By Pontins Pilate doom'd to bear

Thou shalt not how thyself to them,

Nor outward worship pay; Most bitter pains and scorn;

Much less shalt thou, in heart, adore, Was crucified, and for a time,

And to an idol prey.
Both dead and buried lay;
Descended into hell; and rose

For I thy God, a jealous God,

The father's sin chastise To life on the third day;

To third and fourth descent, of all Ascended up to heav'n; and there

Who are my enemies :
At God's right hand is plac'd;

But mercy do to thousands shew,
From whence he shall return to judge And bounteously repay
The quick and dead at last.

All those who me sincerely love,
I likewise firmly do believe,

And my commands obey. O Holy Ghost, in thee;

The sacred Name of God thy Lord The holy universal Church,

Thou never shalt profane, And saints' community.

For God will them not guiltless hold Forgiveness of repented sins,

Who take his Name in vain. (Through Christ, our sacrifice,) Remember thou the sabbath day The resurrection of the dead,

To keep with holy care; And life that never dies.

Six days to labour thou shalt take,

To finish each affair:
THE LORD'S PRAYER,

But God, thy Lord, the seventh day
First Metre.

His sabbath did ordain, UR Father, who in heaven art, In which thou shalt from ev'ry kind

Thy Name be hallow'd in each heart. Of worldly work refrain Thy kingdom come: may we fulfil, Thyself, thy children, servants, then Who dwell on earth, thy heav'nly will, From labour shall be free, With equal cheerfulness and love,

Thy cattle, and the stranger, whom As saints and angels do above.

I Thou tak'st to dwell with thee:

For God thy Lord the solemn space Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace! Of six whole days did take,

Hail the Sun of righteousness! The heavens, earth, and sers, and all Light and life to all he brings, Therein contain'd, to make;

Ris'n with healing in his wings. But rested on the seventh day,

Mild he lays his glory by, Which for that cause he blest,

Born that man no more may die: And sanctified it to be kept

Born to raise the sons of earth, A day of holy rest.

Born to give them second birth. Honour thy parents, that thou may'st

Hark, the herald angels, &c. Both long and happy live,

SONG OF THE ANGELS, In that blest land which God, thy Lord,

At the Nativity of our Blessed Saviour, Did for thy dwelling give.

Luke ii. 8-15.
From murder; from adultery;
And theft thou shalt forbear:

W HILE shepherds watch'd their Nor falsely shalt in any case

W flocks by night, Against thy neighbour swear.

All seated on the ground,

The angel of the Lord came down,
Thou shalt not covet house or wife,

And glory shone around.
Or man, or maid of his,
Or ox, or ass, or ought whereof

Fear not, said he, (for mighty dread He rightful owner is.

Glad tidings of great joy I bring And all our hearts incline

Appear'd a shining throng And peace on earth is given;

Of angels, praising God, and thus For, lo! th' incarnate Saviour comes Address'à their joyful song: With messages from heaven.

The Thanksgiving in the Church CommuW Y God, and is thy table spread,

nion Service. W And doth thy cup with love o'erflow?

To God be glory, peace on earth, Thither be all thy children led,

11 To all mankind good-will; And let them all thy sweetness know,

And hear us when we pray !
Let crowds approach, with hearts pre-
par'd,

O thou, who sitt'st at God's right hand, With hearts inflam'd let all attend; Upon the Father's throne, Nor, when we leave our Father's board, Have mercy on us, Thou, Christ, The pleasure or the profit end.

Who art the Holy One! Revive thy dying churches, Lord, Thou, Lord,,who with the Holy Ghost,

And bid our drooping graces live; Whom earth and heav'n adore,
And more, that energy afford,

In glory of the Father art
A Saviour's blood alone can give. Most high for evermore.
HYMN II.

THE LAMENTATION OF A Out of the Revelation of St. John.

SINNER. THOU, God, all glory, honour, pow'r, LORD, turn not thy face from me, 1 Art worthy to receive;

O Who lie in woeful state,
Since all things by thy pow'r were made, Lamenting all my sinful life
And by thy bounty live.

Before thy mercy-gate;
And worthy is the Lamb, all pow'r, A gate which opens wide to those
Honour, and wealth to gain,

That do lament their sin:
Glory and strength; who for our sins Shut not that gate against me, Lord,
A sacrifice was slain.

But let me enter in.
All worthy thou, who hast redeem'd And call me not to strict account,
And ransom'd us to God,

How I have sojourn'd here;
From ev'ry nation, ev'ry coast,

For then my guilty conscience knows By thy most precious blood.

How vile I shall appear.

I need not to confess my life

| Let all thy converse be sincere, To thee, who best canst tell

Thy conscience as the noon-day clear; What I have been, and what I am ; For God's all-seeing eye surveys I know thou know'st it well.

Thy secret thoughts, thy works and ways. The circumstances of my crimes,

Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart, Their number and their kind,

And with the angels bear thy part; Thou know'st them all; and more, much Who all night long unwearied sing

Than I can call to mind : (more High glory to th' eternal King!
Therefore, with tears, I come to beg

FOR THE EVENING.
Of my offended God,
For pardon, like a child that dreads

LORY to thee, my God, this night, His angry parent's rod.

T For all the blessings of the light; So come I to thy mercy-gate,

Keep me, o keep me, King of kings, Where merey doth abound,

Beneath thy own almighty wings! Imploring pardon for my sin,

Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son, To heal my deadly wound.

The ill that I this day have done; O Lord, I need not to repeat

That, with the world, myself, and thee, The confort I would have:

1, ere I sleep, at peace may be. Thou know'st, O Lord, before I ask, Teach me to live, that I may dread The blessing I do crave.

The grave as little as my bed; Mercy, good Lord, mercy I ask,

Teach me to die, that so I may This is the total sum;

Rise glorious at the awful day. For mercy, Lord, is all my suit;

O let my soul on thee repose! Lord, let thy mercy come!

And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close;

Sleep, that shall me more vig'rous make, FOR THE MORNING. To serve my God, when I awake. A WAKE, my soul, and with the sun If in the night I sleepless lie, 1 Thy daily stage of duty run;

My soul with heavenly thoughts supply; Shake off dull sloth, and early rise Let no ill dreams disturb my rest, To pay thy morning sacrifice.

No powers of darkness me molest. Redeem thy niispent moments past, Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; And live this day as if the last;

Praise him, all creatures here below; Thy talents to improve take care;

Praise him above, angelick host, For the great day thyself prepare. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
