for ever and ever.
Salvation to our GOD, which sitteth upon the throne, and to the Lamb.
Amen: the blessing and the glory and the wisdom, and the thanksgiving and the honour, and the power and the strength,
be unto our GOD,
for ever and ever,
THE SEVENTH DAY.
O LORD, be gracious unto us,
our salvation also in the time of trouble.
Blessed art Thou, O LORD,
who restedst on the seventh day
and blessedst and sanctifiedst it:
[concerning the Sabbath,
concerning the Christian rest instead of it,
concerning those who are already gone to rest.}
(1) Confession. I am ashamed, and blush, O my GOD,
for mine iniquities are increased
and my trespass is grown up unto the heavens;
have I been in a great trespass
unto this day;
I cannot stand before Thee because of this.
My sins are more in number than the sand of the sea,
my iniquities are multiplied,
and see the height of heaven,
from the number of my unrighteousnesses;
and I have no relief,
because I have provoked Thine anger,
and done evil in Thy sight;
not keeping Thy commandments.
I have sinned, O LORD, I have sinned,
and I ask and beseech,
remit to me, O LORD, remit to me, and destroy me not in mine iniquities; nor be Thou angry for ever,
nor reserve evil for me;
nor condemn me
in the lowest parts of the earth.
Because Thou art GOD, the GOD of penitents,
and Thou shalt show in me all Thy loving-kindness;
for Thou shalt save me unworthy,
according to Thy much pity,
and I will praise Thee alway.
LORD, if Thou wilt, Thou canst cleanse me;
LORD, only say the word, and I shall be healed.
LORD, save me;
Carest Thou not that we perish?
Say to me, Be of good cheer, thy sins are remitted to thee.
JESU, Master, have mercy on me ;
Thou Son of David, JESU, have mercy on me;
LORD, I have no man1;
LORD, say to me, be loosed from thine infirmity.
1 John v. 7.
(2) Prayer for grace.
O, remember not our old sins;
for the glory of Thy Name.
[O LORD, remit]
all my failings, shortcomings, falls,
The guilt of them,
charge not, remember not.
that they be not found, that they exist not.
to brotherly love,
away with ;
disperse, annihilate ;
That I forget not my cleansing from my former sins, but give diligence to make my calling and election sure through good works.
I believe in Thee the FATHER;
Behold then, if Thou a Father and we sons,
be Thou of tender mercy towards us. O LORD.
behold Then, if Thou art LORD and we servants,
I believe, that though we be neither sons nor servants,
but dogs only,
yet we have leave to eat of the crumbs
that fall from Thy Table.
I believe that CHRIST is the Lamb of GOD;
O Lamb of GOD that takest away the sins of the world,
take Thou away mine.
I believe that JESUS CHRIST came into the world
Thou who camest to save sinners
save Thou me, of sinners
chief and greatest.
I believe that CHRIST came to save what was lost;
never suffer, O LORD, that to be lost which Thou hast saved. I believe that the SPIRIT is the Lord and Giver of life; Thou who gavest me a living soul,
give me that I receive not my soul in vain.
I believe that the SPIRIT gives grace
give me that I receive not His grace in vain,
