Then shall follow one of the Psalms following,

or if it be one of the Festivals of the Church, the appointed Anthem may be used here, at the discretion of the Minister.

Psalm 8. LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy U name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained ;

What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him ?

For thou madest him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet :

All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of of the field;

The fowls of the air, and the fishes of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.

The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart : the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

Here followeth the Litany, the Minister first pronouncing with a loud voice,

Let us pray. And when the Litany is ended, he shall proceed

as followeth. Then shall the Minister say, ALMIGHTY God, our heavenly Father, n who of his great mercy hath promised forgiveness of sins to all them that with hearty repentance and true faith turn unto him; Have mercy upon you; pardon and deliver en you in all goodness; and bring you to

* everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. Then shall follow the Lord's Prayer, the people still kneeling and repeating it with

the Minister. , OUR Father, which art in heaven; Hal

lowed be thy Name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven:

Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.

Then shall the earth yield her increase ; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.

God shall bless us ; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.


The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. I den

More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold : sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
