LORD Have mercy upon us !

Have mercy upon us!

Have mercy upon us!

Hear us!
Lord God, our Father, which art in heaven!

Hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on 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, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.



Lord God, Son, thou Saviour of the world!

Be gracious unto us! Lord God, Holy Ghost !.

Abide with us for ever!

Cong. Most Holy, Blessed Trinity!

We praise Thee to eternity. :1: ::
Thou Slaughter'd Lamb, our God and Lord!
To needy pray’rs thine ear afford,

And on us all have mercy!

From coldness to thy merits and death,
From error and misunderstanding,
From the loss of our glory in thee,,
From the unhappy desire of becoming great;
From self-complacency,
From untimely projects,
From needless perplexity,
From the murdering spirit and devices of Satan,
From the influence of the spirit of this world,
From hypocrisy and fanaticism,
From the deceitfulness of sin,
From all sin,

Preserve us, gracious Lord and God !
By all the merits of thy life,
By thy human birth and circumcision,
By thy obedience, diligence, and faithfulness,
By thy humility, meekness, and patience,
By thy extreme poverty, ,
By thy watching, fasting, and temptations,
By thy griefs and sorrows,
By thy prayers, and tears,
By thy having been despised and rejected,

Bless and comfort us, gracious Lord and God! By thine agony and bloody sweat, By thy bonds and scourgings, By thy crown of thorns, By thy cross and passion, By thy sacred wounds and precious blood,

IS By thy dying words, By thy atoning death,

By thy rest in the grave, ,
By thy glorious resurrection and ascension,
By thy sitting at the right hand of God, ».
By thy prevailing intercession,
By the holy sacraments,
By thy divine presence,

(Matth. xxviü. 20.) Bless and comfort us, gracious Lord and God! Cong. We humbly pray with one accord,

Remember us, most gracious Lord!
Think on thy suff'rings, wounds, and cross,
And how by death thou savedst us:
For this is all our hope and plea

In time and in eternity.
We poor sinners pray,

Hear us, gracious Lord and God ! Rule and lead thy holy christian church; Increase the knowledge of the mystery of Christ,

and diminish misapprehensions ; Make the word of the cross universal among those

who are called by thy name; Unite all the children of God in one spirit; (John xi. 52.) Abide their only Shepherd, High-Priest and Saviour; Send faithful laborers into thy harvest; Give spirit and power to preach thy word ; Preserve unto us the word of reconciliation till the

end of days, And through the Holy Ghost, daily glorify the

merits of thy life, sufferings and death; Prevent, or destroy, all designs and schemes of

Satan, and defend us against his accusation; For the sake of that peace which we have with thee, may we, as much as lieth in us, live peaceably

(Rom. xii, 18.)
