hear the voice of the forlorn, and deliver us out of the hands of the mischievous, and deliver me out of my fear.

[blocks in formation]

Lord, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O Lord our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude, O Lord, thou art our God ; let not man prevail against thee.

Selected from Ecclesiasticus, ch. 23.

O Lord, father and governor of all my whole life, leave me not to their counsels, and let me not fall by them. Who will set scourges over my thoughts, and the discipline of wisdom over mine heart ? that they spare me not for mine ignorances, and it pass not my sins : lest mine ignorances increase, and my sins abound to my destruction, and I fall before mine adversaries, and mine enemy rejoice over me, whose hope is far from thy mercy.

Turn away from me vain hopes and concu. piscence, and thou shalt hold him up that is desirous always to serve thee. Let not the greediness of the belly, nor lust of the flesh take hold of me: and give not over me thy servant unto an impudent mind.

From the same, ch. 42, 43. 50.

The sun that giveth light looketh upon all things, and the work thereof is full of the glory of the Lord. • The Lord hath not given power to the saints to declare all his marvellous works, which the Almighty Lord firmly settled, that whatsoever is might be established for his glory. He seeketh out the deep, and the heart, and considereth their crafty devices : for the Lord knoweth all that may be known, and he beholdeth the signs of the world. He declareth the things that are past, and for to come, and revealeth the steps of hidden things. No thought escapeth him, neia

Lord, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O Lord our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O Lord, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee.
