night: and my moisture is like the drought in summer.

I will acknowledge my sin unto thee : and mine unrighteousness have I not hid.

I said, I will confess my sins unto the Lord : and so thou forgavest the wickedness of my sin.

For this shall every one that is godly make his prayer unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found : but in the great waterfloods they shall not come nigh him.

Thou art a place to hide me in, thou shalt preserve me from trouble : thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.

I will inform thee, and teach thee in the way wherein thou shalt go : and I will guide thee with mine eye.

Be ye not like to horse and mule, which have no understanding : whose mouths must be held with bit and bridle, lest they fall upon thee.

Great plagues remain for the ungodly : but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord, mercy embraceth him on every side.

Be glad, O ye righteous, and rejoice in the Lord : and be joyful, all ye that are true of heart.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.

Antiphon. Remember not, O Lord God, &c., (as above.)

. Let us pray. VE beseech thee, O Lord, vouchsafe to

grant unto us the knowledge of thy heavenly Wisdom, and of thy loving-kind. ness so furnish us in this path of our pilgrimage with the armour of Righteousness, by bending on us who confess our unrighteousness the eyes of thy grace and mercy ; that our sins being covered by thy pardon and love, and our former offences being no more imputed unto us, we may rejoice together with thy Saints and elect, for ever and ever. Amen.

PSALM XXXVIII. Domine, ne in furore. DUT me not to rebuke, O Lord, in thine I anger : neither chasten me in thy heavy displeasure.

For thine arrows stick fast in me : and thy hand presseth me sore.

There is no health in my flesh, because of thy displeasure : neither is there any rest in my bones, by reason of my sin.

For my wickednesses are gone over my head : and are like a sore burden, too heavy for me to bear.

My wounds stink, and are corrupt: through my foolishness.

I am brought into 80 great trouble and misery ; that I go mourning all the day long.

For my loins are filled with a sore disease : and there is no whole part in my body.

I am feeble, and sore smitten : I have roared for the very disquietness of my heart,

Lord, thou knowest all my desire : and my groaning is not hid from thee.

My heart panteth, my strength hath failed me : and the sight of mine eyes is gone from me.

My lovers and my neighbours did stand looking upon my trouble : and my kinsmen stood afar off.

They also that sought after my life laid snares for me : and they that went about to do me evil talked of wickedness, and imagined deceit all the day long.

As for me, I was like a deaf man, and heard not : and as one that is dumb, who doth not open his mouth.

I became even as a man that heareth not: and in whose mouth are no reproofs.

For in thee, O Lord, have I put my trust: thou shalt answer for me, O Lord my God.

I have required that they, even mine enemies, should not triumph over me: for when my foot slipped, they rejoiced greatly against me.

And I, truly, am set in the plague: and my heaviness is ever in my sight.

For I will confess my wickedness: and be sorry for my sin.

But mine enemies live, and are mighty : and they that hate me wrongfully are many in number.

They also that reward evil for good are against me: because I follow the thing that good is.

Forsake me not, O Lord my God: be not thou far from me.

Haste thee to help me : O Lord God of my salvation.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.

Antiphon. Remember not, O Lord God, &c., (as above.)

Let us pray. LORD, rebuke us not in thy fiery anger, U neither condemn us for ever with the lost. We acknowledge our faults, and pray for pardon. The remembrance of our sins is heavy upon us; our soul is distressed; there is no health in our flesh. Forsake us not, O Lord our God; withdraw not thy grace from us; but haste thee to help us, O Author of our salvation, Jesu Christ, who art blessed for ever. Amen.



Antiphon. Remember not, O Lord God, &c., (as above.)

PSALM LI. Miserere mei, Deus. LAVE mercy upon me, O God, after thy

I great goodness : according to the mul. titude of thy mercies do away mine offences.

Wash me throughly from my wickedness : and cleanse me from my sin.

For I acknowledge my faults : and my sin is ever before me.

Against thee only have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight : that thou mightest be justified in thy saying, and clear when thou art judged.

Behold, I was shapen in wickedness ; and in sin hath my mother conceived me.

But lo, thou requirest truth in the inward parts : and shalt make me to understand wisdom secretly.

Thou shalt purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean : thou shalt wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Thou shalt make me hear of joy and gladness : that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

Turn thy face from my sins : and put out all my misdeeds.

Make me a clean heart, O God: and renew a right spirit within me..
