O CHRIST, hear us.
LORD, have mercy upon us.
OUR Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven; Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil. Amen.
Bishop. O LORD, deal not with us according to our sins.
Answer. Neither reward us according to our iniquities.
Bishop. Let us pray.
O GOD, merciful Father, who despisest not the sighing of a contrite heart, nor the desire of such as are sorrowful; mercifully assist our prayers which we make before thee in all our troubles and adversities, whensoever they oppress us; and graciously hear us, that those evils which the craft and subtilty of the devil or man worketh against us, may, by thy good providence, be brought to naught; that we, thy servants, being hurt by no persecutions, may evermore give thanks unto thee in thy holy Church, through JESUS CHRIST our Lord.
O LORD, arise, help us, and deliver us, for thy name's sake.
O GOD, we have heard with our ears, and our fathers have declared unto us, the noble works that thou didst in their days, and in the old time before
O LORD, arise, help us, and deliver us, for thine honour.
Glory be to the FATHER, and to the SON, and to the HOLY GHOST;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
From our enemies defend us, O CHRIST.
Graciously look upon our afflictions. With pity behold the sorrows of our hearts.
Mercifully forgive the sins of thy people.
Favourably with mercy hear our
Ŏ Son of David, have mercy upon us. Both now and ever, vouchsafe to hear us, O CHRIST.
Graciously hear us, O CHRIST; graciously hear us, O Lord CHRIST.
O LORD, let thy mercy be showed upon us;
As we do put our trust in thee.
WE humbly beseech thee, O Father, mercifully to look upon our infirmities; and for the glory of thy name, turn from us all those evils that we most justly have deserved; and grant that, in all our troubles, we may put our whole trust and confidence in thy mercy, and evermore serve thee in holiness and pureness of living, to thy honour and glory, through our only Mediator and Advocate, JESUS CHRIST Our Lord. Amen.
Here endeth the Litany.
LORD'S SUPPER, OR, HOLY COMMUNION.
OUR Father, who art in heaven, | holy the Sabbath-day. Six days shalt Hallowed be thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven; Give us this day our daily Dread; And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil: For thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
ALMIGHTY GOD, unto whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid; cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of thy HOLY SPIRIT; that we may perfectly love thee, and worthily magnify thy holy name, through CHRIST our Lord. Amen.
Then shall the Bishop, turning to the People, rehearse distinctly the Ten Commandments; and the People still kneeling, shall, after every commandment, ask GoD mercy for their transgressions for the time past, and grace to keep the law for the time to come, as followeth.
Bishop. GOD spake these words, and said, I am the LORD thy GOD: thou shalt have none other gods but me.
People. LORD, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law. Bishop. Thou shalt not make to thyself any graven image, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, or in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down to them nor worship them: For I the LORD thy GOD am a jealous GOD; and visit the sins of the fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate and show mercy unto thousands in them that love me, and keep my command
People. LORD, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law. Bishop. 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.
People. LORD, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law. Bishop. Remember that thou keep
thou labour, and do all that thou hast to do; but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy GOD. In it thou shalt do no manner of work; thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, thy mar man-servant, and thy maid-servant, thy cattle, and 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 seventh day, and hallowed it.
People. LORD, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law. Bishop. Honour thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long in the land which the LORD thy GOD giveth thee.
People. LORD, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law. Bishop. Thou shalt do no murder. People. LORD, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law. Bishop. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
People. LORD, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law. Bishop. Thou shalt not steal.
People. LORD, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law. Bishop. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
People. LORD, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law.
Bishop. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his servant, nor his maid, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is his.
People. LORD, have mercy upon us, and write all these thy laws in our hearts, we beseech thee.
T Then the Bishop may say, 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 neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Let us pray.
O ALMIGHTY LORD, and everlasting GOD, vouchsafe, we beseech thee, to direct, sanctify, and govern, both our hearts and bodies, in the ways of thy laws, and in the works of thy commandments; that, through thy most mighty protection, both here and ever, we may be preserved in body and soul, through our Lord and Saviour JESUS CHRIST.

To do good and to distribute, forget not; for with such sacrifices GoD is well pleased. Heb. xiii. 16.
Whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of GoD in him? 1 John iii. 17.

Bishop. Let us give thanks unto our LORD GOD.
Answer. It is meet and right so to do. Then shall the Bishop turn to the Lord's Table, and say,
IT is very meet, right, and our bounden duty, that we should, at all times, and in all places, give thanks unto thee, O LORD, [*Holy Father,] ALMIGHTY, everlasting Gop.
ALMIGHTY GOD, Father of our Lord JESUS CHRIST, Maker of all things, Judge of all men; we acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, which we from time to time most grievously have committed, by thought, word, and deed, against thy divine majesty; provoking most justly thy wrath and indignation against us. We do earnestly repent, and are heartily sorry for these our misdoings; the remembrance of them is grievous unto us; the burthen of them is intolerable. Have mercy upon us, have mercy upon us, most merciful Father; for thy Son our Lord THEREFORE with angels and JESUS CHRIST's sake, forgive us all that archangels, and with all the company is past; and grant, that we may ever of heaven, we laud and magnify thy hereafter serve and please thee in new-glorious name; evermore praising thee, ness of life, to the honour and glory of thy name, through JESUS CHRIST our Lord.
