PART OF THE BURIAL SERVICE.

(FROM THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER.) I am the resur | rection | 7 and the life, 7 | | saith the | Lord; 7| he that be | lieveth in | me, 7 1 though he were | dead, 7! | yet shall he | live; 7 1 17 and whoso | ever | liveth, i 7 and be | lieveth in | me, 7 1 7 shall | never | die. 7111

71 | know 7 | that my Re | deemer | liveth, 7 and that | he shall | stand 7 | 7 at the I latter | day 7 17 upon the earth, 7 || 7 and though 7 | worms de

| stroy | this 7 | body, | yet in my | flesh 7 1 7 shall I see 7 | God. 7|||

7 Behold, 7 | 7 thou hast | made my | days, 7 | 7 as it | were, 9 17 a span 7 | long: 9 | 7 and mine | age 7 | 7 is | even as / nothing | 7 in res | pect of | thee; 17 | 17 and | verily | every | man sag | living 17 is | alto | gether | vanity:1 17 for | man 71 walketh in a | vain 7 | shadow, | 7 and dis ' quieteth him / self 7 in | vain: 7 | | he | heapeth | up 7| riches | 7 and cannot / tell 7 | who shall | gather them. || |

7 A | thousand | years 7 | 7 in | thy 7 | sight 9 | are but as yesterday; | | seeing / that is / past my long as a | watch in the night. 71117 As soon as thou | scatterest them | 7 they are | even as a | sleep, 7 | 17 and | fade a | way 7 | suddenly | 7 like the grass. 7|| | 7 In the morning | 7 it is / green, 7 | 7 and groweth | up: 71 | but in the evening | 7 it is /

cut 7 | down, 7 | dried 7 | up, 7 | 7 and / withered. Il

7 Wecon | sume a | way 7 1 7 in thy dis | pleasure; | | and are a | fraid 7 | 7 at thy | wrathful | indig | nation: 1 7 for when thou art | angry, | | all our | days 7 | 7 are gone, 9 17 and we | bring our | years 7 | 7 to an end, 7 | as it were a | tale 7 | 7 that is | told. 7| || So 7 | teach us to number our | days: 7| | that we may ap | ply our hearts 7 1 7 unto | wisdom. || |

Now is Christ 9 | risen from the dead, 7 | 7 and become the first 7 | fruits 7 17 of them that | slept; 7117 for | since by man 7 | came 7 | death, 717 by / man 7 | came 7 | also | 7 the 'resur | rection | 7 of the dead. 711 | As in | Adam | all 7 | die, 7| | even 7 | so 7 in Christ 7 1 7 shall | all be

| made a | live. 91117 But some 7 | man 7 17 will | say, 7 | “How are the dead 7 | raised 7 | up? 7117 and with | what 7 | body | 7 do they | come ?" 7|| | Thou 7 | tool, 7|| that which thou / sowest | 7 is | not | quickened | 7 ex | cept 7 | it | die: 7|| 7 and that which thou sowest, | 7 thou sowest not

| that 7 | body | 7 that I shall be, 1 7 but | bare 71 grain, 7 | 17 it may chance of I wheat, 9 | or of some

| other | grain: 9|| 7 but God 9 | giveth it al body, | as it hath pleased | him; 711 7 and to | every seed 7 | 7 his own 7 | body. I || So, 7 | also,

| 7 is the resur | rection | 7 of the dead: 7117 It is / sown 7 1 7 in cor | ruption:11 7 it is / raised | 7
