LESSON. WHEN the Son of Man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory; and before Him shall be gathered all nations : and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: and He shall set the sheep on the right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, Come ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world : For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat : I was thirsty, and ye gave Me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took Me in : naked, and ye clothed Me : I was sick, and ye visited Me: I was in prison, and ye came unto Me. Then shall the righteous answer Him, saying, Lord, when saw we Thee an hungred, and fed Thee? Or thirsty, and gave Thee drink? When saw we Thee a stranger, and took Thee in? Or naked and clothed Thee ? Or when saw we Thee sick, or in prison, and came unto Thee ? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, forasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me.

Thanks be to God.
Into Thy hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.

For Thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.

Keep us, O Lord, as the apple of an eye.
Hide us under the shadow of Thy wings.

I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty, Maker
I of heaven and earth :

And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried, He descended into hell; The third day He rose again from the dead, He ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty ; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; The holy Catholick Church; The Communion of Saints ; The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection of the body, And the life everlasting. Amen.

Let us pray.

Then let all kneeling pray.
Vouchsafe, O Lord, to keep us

This night without sin.
Have mercy upon us, O Lord,

Have mercy upon us.
O Lord, let Thy mercy be shewed upon us,

As we do put our trust in Thee.
Lord, hear our prayer,

And let our crying come before Thee.
GOD our refuge and strength, Who art

the Author of all godliness ; be ready, we beseech Thee, to hear the devout prayers of Thy Church; and grant that those things which we ask faithfully, we may obtain effectually; through Jesus Christ our LORD. Amen.

THIS

GOD, forasmuch as without Thee we are V not able to please Thee; mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts; through JESUS CHRIST our LORD. Amen. MERCIFUL Lord, Who of Thine abundant

1 goodness towards us hast made the day to labour in, and ordained the night wherein to take our rest; grant us such rest of body, that we may continually have a waking soul, to watch for the time when our Lord shall appear to deliver us from this mortal life. Suffer not vain thoughts to trouble us, nor let our ghostly enemies have power over us; but let our minds be set wholly upon Thy presence, to love and to fear, and to rest in Thee alone; that being refreshed with a moderate and sober sleep, we may rise up again with cheerful strength and gladness, to serve Thee in all good works ; through JESUS CARIST our LORD. Amen.

The grace of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost, be with us all evermore. Amen.

FRIDAY. THE DAY OF THE CRUCIFIXION OF OUR SAVIOUR AND

REDEEMER JESUS CHRIST.

Morning Prayer. OPEN Thou mine eyes : that I may see the wondrous things of Thy law.-Ps. cxix. 18.

[ocr errors]

Every good gift, and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with Whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.–St. James i. 17.

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.–St. James i. 27.

Then all kneeling.
Lord, have mercy upon us.

Christ, have mercy upon us.

Lord, have mercy upon us. \UR Father, Which art in heaven, Hallowed U be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation ; But deliver us from evil : For Thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.

O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us.

Then all standing up.
Glory be to the Father, &c.
As it was in the beginning, &c.

To be said or sung.
AWAKE my soul, and with the sun,
Thy daily stage of duty run :
Shake off dull sloth, and early rise,
To pay thy morning sacrifice.

Improve sent daye mispent

Thy precious time mispent, redeem; .
Each present day thy last esteem;
Improve thy talent with due care;
For the great day thyself prepare.
In all thy doings be sincere,
Keep conscience, as the noon-day, clear ;
Think how all-seeing God thy ways,
And all thy secret thoughts surveys.
Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Hiin, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
O Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy
upon us.

Thou, that sitteth at the right hand of the Father, have mercy upon us.

Psalm vi. O LORD, rebuke me not in Thine indignation : . neither chasten me in Thy displeasure.

Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am weak : O Lord, heal me, for my bones are vexed.

My soul also is sore troubled : but, Lord, how long wilt Thou punish me ?

Turn Thee, O Lord, and deliver my soul : 0 save me for Thy mercy's sake.

For in death no man remembereth Thee : and who will give Thee thanks in the pit ?

I am weary of my groaning; every night wash I my bed : and water my couch with my tears.

My beauty is gone for very trouble : and worn away because of all mine enemies.
