HE Guardian Angels ^HUSTODES hominum


let us sing Appointed by our heavenly King,

To help our frailty and o'erthrow

Our crafty undermining foe. Th' Apostate Angel's hopes

now crost,
And all his ancient honours

He vents his spleen on hu-
man race
Designed by God to take

his place.
O watchful Guardian, then

descend, Protect and shield us from

the fiend; Let no disease our souls

molest, And calm those ills that

break our rest. O Trinity, we praise thy


Whose God-head rules the

triple frame Let every age, and every


Thy endless-glory always sing. Amen.

V. In the sight of the Angels I will sing to thee, O my God, R I will adore thee in thy holy temple, and praise thy name.

AT that time: Jesus answered and said; I give thanks to thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hidden these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them to the little ones. Yea, Father; for so it hath seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered up to me by my Father. And no one knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither doth any one know the Father, but the Son, and he to whom the Son shall be willing to reveal him. Come to me, all you that labour, and are heavy laden, and I will refresh you. Take up my yoke upon you, and learn of me, because I am meek and humble of heart; and you shall find rest to your souls; for my yoke is sweet, and my burden is light.
