demption through his blood, even the forgiveness of fins.

After the conclusion of the whole action.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgiveth all thine iniquities, and healeth all thy diseases ; who redeemeth'thy life from destruction, and crowneth thee with loving-kindness and tender mercies ; who fatisfieth thy mouth with good things. Bless the Lord, O my soul.

A prayer to be used in private afterwards. I praise and magnify thy great and glorious name, O Lord, my God, for the blessed opportunity afforded to me this day, of commemorating thy infinite goodness and mercy to me and all mankind, in sending thy only Son into the world to take our nature upon hiin, to submit to the infirmities and miseries of it, to live amongst us, and to dy for us : And to preserve the memory of this great love and goodness of thine to us for ever in our hearts, that thou hast been pleased to appoint the blessed sacrament, for a solemn remembrance of it. Grant, O Lord, that I may faithfully keep and perform that holy covenant which I have this day so solemnly renewed and confirmed in thy presence, and at thy table. Let it be an eternal obligation upon me, of perpetual love and obedience to thee. Let nothing seein hard for me to do, or grievous for me to suffer for thy fake, who whilft I was a finner, and an enemy to thee, lovedft me at such a rate as never any man did his friend.

Grant that by this sacrament there may be conveyed to my soul new fpiritual life and strength, and such a measure of thy grace and assistance, as may enable me to a greater care of my duty for the

future :

furere : That I may henceforth live as becomes the rejeemes of the Lord; even to him who died for mv fins, and role again for my juftification, and is now fet down on the right hand of the throne of God, to make interceflion for me. In his holy name and wor's I conclude my imperfect prayers :

CR Farber which art in heaven, hallowed be

by name. Thy kingdom come. Thy. will be doze in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespases, as we forgive them that have trespassed 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. Amen.
