O praise our God, ye people; and make the voice of his praise to be heard; Who holdeth our soul in life; and suffereth not our feet to slip. For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou also hast tried us, like as silver is tried. Thou broughtest us into the snare; and laidest trouble upon our loins. I will go into thine house with burnt-offerings; and will pay thee my vows which I promised with my lips, and spake with my mouth, when I was in trouble. O come hither, and hearken. all ye that fear God; and I will tell you what he hath done for my soul. I called unto him with my mouth ; and gave him praises with my tongue.

Praised be God, who hath not cast out my prayer, nor turned his mercy from me.

They that go down to the sea in ships; and occupy their busiuess in great waters; These men see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep. For at his word, the stormy wind ariseth ; which lifteth up the waves thereof. They are carried up to the heaven, and down again to the deep; their soul melteth away because of the trouble, They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man; and are at their wit’s end. So when they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, he delivereth them out of their distress. For he maketh the storm to cease, so that the waves therepf are still. •oo." Then are they glad, because they are at rest; and so he bringeth them unto the haven where they would be. O that men would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness; and declare the wonders that he doeth for the children of men : That they would exalt him also in the congregation of the people ; and praise him in the seat of the elders' 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. T Collects of Thanksgiving.

our life, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. Amen. T A Hymn of Praise and Thanksgiving after a dangerous Tempest. Come, let us give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious; and his mercy endureth for ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath delivered from the merciless rage of the sea. The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. He hath not dealt with us acCording to our sins; neither rewarded us according to our iniquities. , But as the heaven is high above the earth; so great hath been his mercy towards us. We found trouble and heaviness; we were even at death's door. The waters of the sea had well high covered us; the proud waters had well nigh gone over our Soul. Thesea roared; and the stormy wind lifted up the waves thereof. We were carried up as it were to heaven, and then down again into the deep ; our soul melted within us, because of trouble. Then cried we unto thee, 0 Lord; and thou didst deliver us out of our distress. Blessed be thy name, who didst not despise the prayer of thy servants; but didst hear our cry, and hast saved us. Thou didst send forth thy commandment; and the windy storm ceased, and was turned into a calm. 0 let us therefore praise the for his goodness; and declare the wondersthat he hath done,and

still doeth, for the children of men! Praised be the Lord daily; even the Lord that helpeth us, and poureth his benefits upon us. He is our God, even the God of whom cometh salvation: God is the Lord, by whom we have escaped death. Thou, Lord, hast made us glad through the operation of thy hands; and we will triumph in thy praise. Blessed be the Lord God; even the Lord God, who only doeth wondrous things; And blessed be the name of his Majesty for ever; and let every one of us say, Amen, Amen. 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. T A Psalm or Hymn of Praise and Thanksgiving after Pictory. IF the Lord had not been on our side, now may we say; if the Lord himself had not been on our side, when men rose up againstus; They had swallowed us up quick, when they were so wrathfully displeased at us. Yea, the waters had drowned us, and the stream had gone over our soul; the deep waters of the proud had gone over our soul. But praised be the Lord, who hath not given us over as a prey unto them. The Lord hath wrought a mighty salvation for us. We got not this by our own sword, neither was it our own arm that saved us; but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thv countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto us.

The Lord hath appeared for us; the Lord hath covered our

heads, and made us to stand in
the day of battle.
The Lord hath appeared for us;
the Lord hath overthrown our
enemies, and dashed in pieces
those that rose up against us.
Therefore not unto us, O Lord,
not unto us; but unto thy name
be given the glory.
The Lord hath done great
things for us; the Lord hath done
great things for us, for which we
I ejoice.
Our help standeth in the name
of the Lord, who hath made hea-
ven and earth.
Blessed be the name of the
Lord, from this time forth for
eVermore.
Glory be to the Father, and to
the Son, and to the Holygh9st;
As it was in the beginning, is
now, and ever shall be, world
without end. Amen. -
