DEARLY beloved bre-devices and desires of our own

thren, the Scripture hearts. We have offended
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
no health in us. But thou,
O Lord, have mercy upon us,
miserable offenders. Spare
thou them, O God, which
confess their faults. Restore
thou them that are penitent;
According to thy promises
declared unto mankind in
Christ Jesu our Lord. And
grant, O most merciful Father,
for his sake; That we may
hereafter live a godly, righte-
ous, and sober life, To the
glory of thy holy Name. Amen.

and mercy.

Christ, who desireth not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickedness, and live; and 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 them that truly repent, and unfeignedly believe his holy Gospel.
