Thou art the very Comforter

In grief and all distress;
The heavenly gift of God most High;

No tongue can it express;
The fountain and the living spring

Of joy celestial;
The fire so bright, the love so sweet,

The Unction spiritual.
Thou in thy gifts art manifold,

By them Christ's Church doth stand: In faithful hearts thou wriťst thy law,

The finger of God's hand. According to thy promise, Lord,

Thou givest speech with grace;
That, through thy help, God's praises may

Resound in every place.
O Holy Ghost, into our minds

Send down thy heavenly light;
Kindle our hearts with fervent zeal,

To serve God day and night.
Our weakness strengthen and confirm

(For, Lord, thou know'st us frail ;) That neither devil, world, nor flesh,

Against us may prevail.
Put back our enemy far from us,

And help us to obtain
Peace in our hearts with God and Man,

(The best, the truest gain ;)
And grant that thou being, O Lord,

Our leader and our guide,
We may escape the snares of sin,

And never from thee slide.
Such measures of thy powerful grace

Grant, Lord, to us, we pray;
That thou may'st be our Comforter

At the last dreadful day.
Of strife and of dissension

Dissolve, O Lord, the bands,
And knit the knots of peace and love

Throughout all Christian lands.
Grant us the grace that we may know

The Father of all might, That we of his beloved Son

May gain the blissful sight;
And that we may with perfect faith

Ever acknowledge thee,
The Spirit of Father, and of Son,

One God in Persons Three.

To God the Father laud and praise,

And to his blessed Son,
. And to the Holy Spirit of grace,

Co-equui Three in One.
And pray we, that our only Lord

Would please his spirit to send
On all that shall profess his Name,

From hence to the world's end. Amen.

[ That ended, the Presiding Bishop shall say Lord, hear our prayer. Answer. And let our cry come unto thee.

Let us pray.

, infinite goodness, hast given thine only and dearly beloved Son Jesus Christ, to be our Redeemer, and the Author of everlasting life; who, after that he had made perfect our Redemption by his death, and was ascended into heaven, poured down his gifts abundantly upon men, making some Apostles, sorno Prophets, some Evangelists, some Pastors and Doctors; to the edifying and making perfect his Church ; Grant, we beseech thee, to this thy servant, such grace, that he may evermore be ready to spread abroad thy Gospel, the glad tidings of reconciliation with thee; and use the authority given bum, not to destruction, but to salvation; not to hurt, but to help: so that, as a wise and faithful servant, giving to thy family their portion in due season, be may at last be received into everlasting joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with thee and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth, one God, world without end. Amen.

Amen. And remember that thou stir up the grace of God, which is given thee by this Imposition of our hands: for God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and love, and soberness.

1 Then the Presiding Bishop shall deliver him the Bible, saying, G JVE heed unto reading, exhortation, and doctrine. Think

upon the things contained in this Book. Be diligent in them, that the increase coming thereby may be manifest into all men; for by so doing thou shalt both save thyself and them that bear thee. Be to the flock of Christ a sliepber, not a wolf; feed them, devour them not. Hold up the weak, heal the sick, bind up the broken, bring again the outcasts, seek the lost. Be so merciful, that you be not too remiss; so minister discipline, that you forget not mercy: that when the Chief Shepherd shall air

pear, you may receive the never-fading crown of glory; through. Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Then the Presiding Bishop shall proceed in the Communion Service ; with whom the new Consecrated Bishop, with others, shall also communicate. [ And for the last Collect, immediately before the Benediction, shall be
