Thou, LORD, shalt save both man and beast, how excellent is thy mercy, O God! And the children of men shall put their trust under the shadow of Thy wings. The LORD bless us, and keep us, and show the light of His countenance upon us, And be merciful unto us,
The LORD lift up His countenance upon us,
I commend to Thee, O LORD,
my brothers, and my sisters,
my friends, my benefactors, my well wishers,
those who have a claim on me; my kindred, and my neighbours, my country, and all Christendom.
I commend to Thee, LORD,
Up with our hearts;
we lift them to the LORD.
O how very meet, and right, and fitting, and due,
in all, and for all,
at all times, places, manners, in every season, every spot, everywhere, always, altogether,

to remember Thee, to worship Thee,
to give thanks to Thee,
King and God,
fountain of life and immortality,
Whom the heavens hymn,
under their feet,--
and the whole earth,
for His Godhead, His mysteriousness,
His height, His sovereignty, His almightiness,
The LORD is my strength, my stony rock, and my defence,
THE SECOND DAY.
Introduc- My voice shalt Thou hear betimes, O Lord,
tion. early in the morning will I direct my prayer unto Thee, and will look up.
Blessed art Thou, O LORD,
who didst create the firmament of heaven,
the heavens and the heaven of heavens,
the heavenly powers,
waters above the heavens,
mists and exhalations,
for showers, dew, hail, snow as wool,
hoar frost as ashes, ice as morsels,
clouds from the ends of the earth,
lightnings, thunders, winds out of Thy treasures, storms;
waters beneath the heavens,
I will confess my sins, and the sins of my fathers,
for I have transgressed and neglected Thee, O LORD,
Set not, O LORD, set not my misdeeds before Thee,
nor my life in the light of Thy countenance,
as Thou hast been merciful to him from a child,
even so now.
I have sinned, what shall I do unto Thee,
Why hast Thou set me as a mark against Thee,
O pardon my transgression,
Have mercy on me, Son of David,
Yea, LORD, even the dogs eat of the crumbs
Have patience with me, LORD,
yet I have not wherewith to pay,
forgive me the whole debt, I beseech Thee.
for if I be cast down, they that trouble me will rejoice at it;
but my trust is in thy mercy.
