to anger, and of great sold sins and wickedness, and D

that we should not dissemble
nor cloak them before the
face of Almighty God, our
heavenly Father, but confess
them with an humble, lowly,
penitent, and obedient heart;
to the end that we may obtain
forgiveness of the same by
his infinite goodness and mer-
cy. And although we ought,
at all times, humbly to ac-
knowledge our sins before
God; yet ought we chiefly so
to do, when we assemble and
meet together, to render
thanks for the great benefits
that we have received at his
hands, to set forth his most
worthy praise, to hear his
most holy word, and to ask
those things which are requi-
site and necessary, as well
for the body as the soul.
Wherefore, I pray and be-
seech you, as many as are
here present, to accompany
me, with a pure heart and
humble voice, unto the throne
of the heavenly grace, saying:
* A general confession to be
said by the whole Congrega-
tion after the Minister, all
LMIGHTY and most
merciful Father; We
have erred and strayed from
thy ways like lost sheep. We
have followed too much the
devices and desires of Gur
own hearts. We have of
fended against thy holy laws.
We have left undone those
things which we ought to
have done; And we have done
those things which we ought
not to have done: And there is
n calth in us. But thou, O

Lord, have mercy upon us,
miserable offenders. Spare
thou those, O God, who con-
fess their faults. Restore thou
those who are penitent; Ac-
cording to thy promises de-
clared unto mankind,in Christ
Jesus our Lord. And grant,
O most merciful Father, for
his sake; That we may here-
after live a godly, righteous,
and sober life; To the glory
of thy holy name. Amen.
* The Declaration of Absolu-
tion, or the Remission of
Sins ; to be made by the
PRIEst alone, standing ; the
Peofile still knecling.

LMIGHTY God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who desireth not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickedness and live, hath given power and commandment to his Ministers to declare and pronounce to his people, being penitent, the Absolution and Remission of their sins. He pardoneth and absolveth all those who truly repent, and unfeignedly believe his holy Gospel. Wherefore, let us beseech him to grant us true repentance, and his Holy Spirit; that those things may please him which we do at this present, and that the rest of our life hereafter may be pure and holy; so that at the last we may come to his eternal joy, through Jesus Christ our Lord. * The Peofile shall answer here, and at the end of every Prayer, Amen.

* Or this. Aoto. God, our heavenly Father, who of his great mercy, hath promised Forgiveness of Sins to all those who, with hearty RePentance and true Faith, turn unto him; have mercy upon you, pardon and deliver you from all your sins, confirm and strengthen you in all goodness, and bring you to everlasting life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. * Then the Minister shall kneel, and say the Lord’s Prayer ; the Peofile still kneeling, and refeating it with him, both here, and wheresoever else it is used in Divine Service. UR 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 : For thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, for ever and ever. Mmen. * Then likewise he shall say, O Lord, open thou our lips; ..fns. And our mouth shall show forth thy praise. * Here, all standing up, the Minister shall say, Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; ...Ans. As it was in the be

Min. Praise ye the Lord.

COME, let us sing unto the Lord, let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and show ourselves glad in him with psalms. For the Lord is a great God; and a great King above all gods. In his hand are all the corners of the earth ; and the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it ; and his hands prepared the dry land. O come let us worship and fall down; and kneel before the Lord, our Maker. For he is the Lord our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; let the whole earth stand in awe of him. For he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth ; and with righteousness to judge
