God the All-merciful! earth hath forsaken

Thy way of blessedness, slighted Thy Word:
Bid not Thy wrath in its terrors awaken;
Grant to us peace, 0 most merciful Lord.

3
God the All-righteous One! man hath defied Thee,

Yet to eternity standeth Thy Word;
Falsehood and wrong shall not tarry beside Thee:
Grant to us peace, o most merciful Lord.

4
So shall Thy children, in thankful devotion,

Praise Him Who saved them from peril and sword,
Singing in chorus from ocean to ocean,
“Peace to the nations, and praise to the Lord." Amen.

4 Arise, O Lord of hosts,

The pastors of Thy fold Be jealous for Thy Name,

With grace and power endue, And drive from out our coasts

That faithful, pure, and bold,
The sins that put to shame:

They may be pastors true:
O Lord, stretch forth Thy mighty hand, O Lord, stretch forth Thy mighty hand,
And guard and bless our Fatherland. And guard and bless our Fatherland.

3 The Church of Thy dear Son

Inflame with love's pure fire;
Bind her once more in one,

And life and truth inspire:
O Lord, stretch forth Thy mighty hand,
And guard and bless our Fatherland.

5
Give peace, Lord, in our time;

O let no foe draw nigh,
Nor lawless deed of crime

Insult Thy majesty:
O Lord, stretch forth Thy mighty hand,
And guard and bless our Fatherland. Amen.

Opening Sentences

HE Lord is in His holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before Him.

THE

I was glad when they said unto me, we will go into the house of the Lord.

[ocr errors]

Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him, while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God for He will abundantly pardon.

Seeing that we have a great High Priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God; let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh such to worship Him. God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him, must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; fear before Him, all the earth.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my Strength and my Redeemer.

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

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

Watch ye, for ye know not when the Master of the House cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cock-crowing, or in the morning: lest coming suddenly He find you sleeping.

The Commandments

Goue of the land out the house lot bondager God, which have brought thee

OD

out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 1.- Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.

II. - Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments.

III. - Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain.

IV.- Remember the Sabbath-day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God; in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor the stranger that is within thy gates; for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath-day, and hallowed it.

V.- Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

VI.- Thou shalt not kill.
VII. - Thou shalt not commit adultery.
VIII.- Thou shalt not steal.
IX.- Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

X.- Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's.

Hear also what our Lord Jesus Christ saith: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Blessed are the peace-makers, for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you and persecute you and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake.

Rejoice and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
