Bonum est confiteri. Psalm xcii.
a , and to sing praises unto thy Name, O Most Highest; To tell of thy loving-kindness early in the morning, and of thy truth in the night season ;
Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the lute; upon a loud instrument, and upon the harp.
For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy works; and I will rejoice in giving praise for the operations of thy hands.
I Then a Lesson of the New Testament, as it is appointed.
Deus misereatur. Psalm lxvii. OD be merciful unto us and bless us, and show us the light of his countenance, and be merciful
That thy way may be known upon earth, thy sav- . ing health among all nations.

Benedic, anima mea. Psalm ciii.
RAISE the Lord, O my soul; and all that is
Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits;
Who forgiveth all thy sin, and healeth all thine infirmities;
Who saveth thy life from destruction, and crowneth thee with mercy and loving-kindness.
O praise the LORD, ye Angels of his, ye that excel in strength; ye that fulfil his commandment, and hearken unto the voice of his word. O praise the LORD, all
ye his hosts; ye servants of his that do his pleasure.
O speak good of the Lord, all ye works of his, in all places of his dominion; praise thou the Lord,O mysoul. Then shall be said the Apostles' Creed by the Minister and the People, standing:
Churches omit the words, He descended into hell, or may, instead of them, use the words, He went into the place of departed spirits, which are considered as words of the same meaning in the Creed.
, : And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary; Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell, The third day he rose from the dead; He ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost; The holy Catholic Church, The Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection of the body; And the Life everlasting. Amen.
I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty, Maker
| Or this.
BELIEVE in one God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth, And of all things visible and invisible :
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten
Son of God, Begotten of his Father before all worlds ; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, Begotten, not made, Being of one substance with the Father; By whom all things were made; Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, And was made man, And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried; And the third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures; And ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of the Father. And he shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead; Whose kingdom shall have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, Who spake by the Prophets. And I believe one Catholic and Apostolic Church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins; And I look for the Resurrection of the dead, And the Life of the world to come. Amen. 1 And after that, these Prayers following, all devoutly kneeling; the Minister first

A Collect for Peace. GOD, from whom all holy desires, all good counsels, and all just works do proceed; Give unto

A Collect for Aid against Perils. O
LORD, our heavenly Father, by whose Almighty
power we have been preserved this day; By thy great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of thy only Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen. A Prayer for the President of the United States, and
all in Civil Authority. O
LORD, our heavenly Father, the high and
mighty Ruler of the universe, who dost from thy throne behold all the dwellers upon earth ; Most heartily we beseech thee with thy favour to behold and bless thy servant THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, and all others in authority; and so replenish them with the grace of thy Holy Spirit, that they may always incline to thy will, and walk in thy way. Endue them plenteously with heavenly gifts; grant them in health and prosperity long to live; and finally, after this life, to attain everlasting joy and felicity; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

A Prayer for the Clergy and People. ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, from whom
cometh every good and perfect gift; Send down upon our Bishops, and other Clergy, and upon the Congregations committed to their charge, the healthful Spirit of thy grace; and, that they may truly please thee, pour upon them the continual dew of thy blessing.

A Prayer for all Conditions of Men. O
GOD, the Creator and Preserver of all mankind,
we humbly beseech thee for all sorts and conditions of men; that thou wouldest be pleased to make thy ways known unto them, thy saving health unto all nations.

Finally, we commend to thy fatherly goodness all those who are any ways afflicted, or distressed, in mind, body, or estate; that it may please thee to comfort and relieve them, according to their several necessities; giving them patience under their sufferings, and a happy issue out of all their afflictions. And this we beg for Jesus Christ's sake. Amen.

unworthy servants, do give thee most humble and hearty thanks for all thy goodness and lovingkindness to us, and to all men. We bless thee for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life; but above all, for thine inestimable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ; for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory. And, we beseech thee, give us that due sense of all thy mercies, that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful, and that we may show forth thy praise, not only with our lips, but in our lives; by giving up ourselves to thy service,
