O Thou who knowest each man and his petition, each house, and its need,
deliver, O LORD, this city,
and all the country in which we sojourn,
End the schisms of the Churches,
and Thy peace and love
which we have remembered, and which we have not.
Christianly, acceptably, and, should it please Thee, painlessly,
gathering us together under the feet of Thine elect, when Thou wilt and how Thou wilt, only without shame and sins.
The brightness of the LORD our God be upon us, prosper Thou the work of our hands upon us, O prosper Thou our handy work.
within me to strengthen me,
over me to shelter me,
(5) Praise. Blessed art Thou, LORD, GOD of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.
is the greatness and the power,
for Thou rulest over all
At Thy face every king is troubled,
Thine, O LORD, is the kingdom
With Thee is wealth, and glory is from Thy countenance; Thou rulest over all, O LORD,
the Ruler of all rule;
and in Thine hand is strength and power,
and in Thine hand to give to all things
And now, LORD, we confess to Thee,
THE FIFTH DAY.
We are satisfied with Thy mercy, O LORD, in the morning.
Blessed art Thou, O LORD,
who broughtest forth from the water
creeping things of life,
and winged fowl.
Be Thou exalted, O GOD, above the heavens,
By the marvellous mystery
on the evening of this day,
Thou who hast said,
"As I live, saith the LORD,
I will not the death of a sinner,
Turn us from all our ungodlinesses,
and let them not be to us for punishments.
I have sinned, I have committed iniquity, I have done wickedly,
from Thy precepts, and Thy judgments.
and to me confusion of face,
as at this day,
in our despicableness, wherewith Thou hast despised us. LORD, to us confusion of face,
and to our rulers
who have sinned against Thee.
LORD, in all things is Thy righteousness,
unto all Thy righteousness;
let then Thine anger and Thy fury be turned away,
and cause Thy face to shine
upon Thy servant.
O my God, incline Thine ear and hear,
O LORD hear, O LORD forgive, O LORD hearken and do;
defer not for Thine own sake, O my God,
LORD, let Thy mercy rejoice against Thy judgment
If I say I have no sin, I deceive myself,
but I confess my sins many and grievous,
I have an Advocate with Thee to Thee,
who is also for the whole world.
Is His mercy clean gone for ever?
and is His promise come utterly to an end for evermore ? Hath God forgotten to be gracious?
and will He shut up His loving kindness in displeasure? And I said, It is mine own infirmity ;
but I will remember the years of the right hand
(2) Prayer for grace.
[Give me grace]
and the sin that doth so easily beset us;
and superfluity of naughtiness,
lust of the flesh, of the eyes,
every motion of flesh and spirit
alienated from the will of Thy sanctity:
that I have a portion in the kingdom of heaven;
to mourn, that I be comforted;
to be meek, that I inherit the earth;
to hunger and thirst for righteousness, that I be filled; to be pitiful, that I be pitied;
to be pure in heart, that I see GOD;
to be a peace-maker that I be called the son of GOD;
that my reward be in heaven,-
I, coming to GOD,
and that He is a rewarder of them
I know that my Redeemer liveth,
that He is CHRIST, the SON of the Living GOD,
