power and mercy in the miraculous and gracious deliverances of thy Church, and in the protection of righteous and religious Kings and States, professing thy holy and eternal truth, from the wicked conspiracies, and malicious practices of all the enemies thereof: We yield thee our unfeigned thanks and praise, for the wonderful and mighty deliverance of our gracious Sovereign King James the First, the Queen, the Prince, and all the Royal Branches, with the Nobility, Clergy, and Commons of England, then assembled in Parliament, by Popish treachery appointed as theep to the daughter, in a most barbarous and savage manner, beyond the examples of former ages. From this unnatural conspiracy, not our merit, but thy mercy; not our foresight, but thy providence, delivered us: And therefore, not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy Name be ascribed all honour and glory, in all Churches of the faints, from generation to generation, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

thanks for filling our hearts again with joy and gladness, after the time that thou hadit afficted us, and putting a new song into our mouths, by bringing his Majesty King William upon this day, for the deliverance of our Church and Nation from Popish tyranny and arbitrary power. We adore the wisdom and justice of thy providence, which so timely interposed in our extreme danger, and disappointed all the deligns of our enemies. We beseech thee, give us such a lively and lasting sense of what thou didst then, and halt since that time done for us, that me may not grow secure and careless in our obedience, by presuming upon thy great and undeserved goodness; but that it may lead us to repentance, and move us to be the more diligent and zealous in all the duties of our religion, which thou hast in a marvellous manner preserved to us. Let truth and justice, brotherly kindness and charity, devotion and piety, concord and unity, with all other vir. tues, so flourish among us, that they may be the stability of our times, and make this Church a 'praise in the earth. All which we humbly beg for the fake of our blessed Lord and Saviour. Amen.

gracious providence, and tender mercy towards us, didst prevent the malice and imaginations of our enemies, by discovering and confounding their horrible and wicked enterprize, plotted and intended this day to have been executed against the King and the whole State of England, for the subversion of the Government and Religion established among us; and didst likewise upon this day wonderfully conduct thy servant King William, and bring him safely into England, to preserve us from the attempts of our enemies to bereave us of our religion and laws: We most humbly praise and magnify thy most glorious Name for thy unspeakable goodness towards us, expressed in both these acts of thy mercy. We confess it has been o'
thy mercy alone, that we are not consumed : For our fins have cried to heaven against us, and our iniquities justly called for vengeance upon us. But thou hast not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us after our iniquities; nor given us over, as we deserved, to be a prey to our enemies; but hast in mercy delivered us from their malice, and preserved us from death and destruction. Let the confideration of this thy repeated goodness, O Lord, work in us true repentance, that iniquity may not be our ruin; and increase in us more and more a lively faith and love, fruitful in all holy obedience; that thou mayest still continue thy favour, with the light of thy Gospel, to us and our posterity for evermore; and that for thy dear Son's fake Jesus Christ, our only Mediator and Advocate. Amen. Instead of the Prayer [In time of War and Tumults]

death that were laid for us, and didst wonderfully deliver us from the same; be thou still our mighty Protector, and scatter our enemies that delight in blood : In. fatuate and defeat their counsels, abate their pride, assuage their malice, and confound their devices. Strengthen the hands of our gracious sovereign King GEORGE, and all that are put in authority under him, with judgment and justice, to cut off all such workers of iniquity, as turn religion into rebellion, and faith into faction; that they may never prevail against us, or triumph in the ruin of thy Church among us : but that our gracious Sovereign, and his realms, being preserved in thy true religion, and by thy merciful goodness protected in the same, we may all duly serve thee, and give thee thanks in thy holy congregation, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. In the Communion-Service, instead of the Collect for the

thy unworthy servants do humbly present ourselves before thy Majesty, acknowledging thy power, wisdom, and goodness, in preserving the King, and the Three Estates of the realm of England, assembled in Parliament, from the destruction of this dayincended against them. Make us, we beseech thee, truly chankful for this, and for all other thy great mercies towards us; particularly for making this day again memorable, by a fresh instance of thy loving-kindness towards us. We bless thee for giving his late Majesty King William a safe arrival here, and for making all oppofision fall before him, till he became our king and governor. We beseech thee to protect and defend our So. reigu King GEORGE, and all the Royal Family, from all, treasons and conspiracies; preserve him in thy faith, fear, and love; prosper his reign with long happiness here on earth; and crown him with everlasting glory hereafter, thro' Jesus Christ our only Saviour and Redeemer.

The Epistle. Rom. xiii. i
for there is no power but of God: the powers that be, are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore refifteth' the power, resisteth the ordinance of God; and they that refift, shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power ; do that which is good, and thou lhalt have praise of the fame: for he is the minister of God to thee for good.' But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth, not the sword in vain : for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon hin that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience fake. For, for this cause pay ye tribute alfo : for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. Render therefore to all their dues ; tribute to whom tribute is due, custom to whom custom, fear to whom fear, honour to whom honour.
