Have mercy upon us!
mercy upon us!
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 them that 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!
Lord God, Son, thou Saviour of the world!
Be gracious unto us! Lord God, Holy Ghost!.
Abide with us for ever!
From coldness to thy merits and death,
Preserve us, gracious Lord and God!
Bless and comfort us, gracious Lord and God! By thine agony and bloody sweat, By thy bonds and scourgings, By thy crown of thorns, By thy cross and passion, By thy sacred wounds and precious blood, By thy dying words, By thy atoning death,

end of days, And through the Holy Ghost, daily glorify the
merits of thy life, sufferings and death; Prevent, or destroy, all designs and schemes of
Satan, and defend us against his accusation; For the sake of that peace which we have with thee, may we, as much as lieth in us, live peaceably
