We then remembering too, O sovereign LORD, in the presence of Thy holy mysteries,

the salutary passion of Thy CHRIST,

His life-giving cross,
most precious death,
three days sepulture,

resurrection from the dead,

ascent into heaven,

session at the right hand of Thee, the FATHER,

His fearful and glorious coming;

we beseech Thee, O LORD,

that we, receiving in the pure testimony,

of our conscience,

our portion of Thy sacred things,

may be made one with the holy Body and Blood of Thy CHRIST;

and receiving them not unworthily,

hold CHRIST indwelling in our hearts,
and may become a temple

of Thy HOLY SPIRIT.
Yea, O our God,

we may

nor make any of us guilty

of Thy dreadful and heavenly mysteries,
nor infirm in soul or body

from partaking of them unworthily.
But grant us

until our last and closing breath worthily to receive a hope of Thy holy things, for sanctification, enlightening, strengthening,

a relief of the weight of my many sins, a preservative against all satanic working, a riddance and hindrance of my evil conscience, a mortification of my passions,

an appropriation of Thy commandments,
an increase of Thy divine grace;

and a securing of Thy kingdom.

[blocks in formation]

It is finished and done,

so far as in our power,
CHRIST Our God,

the mystery of Thy dispensation. For we have held remembrance of Thy death, we have seen the figure of Thy resurrection, we have been filled with Thy endless life, we have enjoyed Thy uncloying dainties, which graciously vouchsafe all of us, in the world to come.

LORD, the good God,
pardon every soul,

that purifieth his heart to seek God,

the LORD GOD of His fathers,

though he be not cleansed

according to the purification of the sanctuary.

THE END.
