Enter not into judgment with thy servants, who are vile earth and miserable sinners; but so turn thine anger from us, who meekly acknowledge our vileness, and truly repent us of our faults; and so make, haste to help us in this world, that we may ever live with thee in the world to come, through Jesus Christ our Lord. -Search us, O God, and know our hearts : try us, and know our thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in us, and lead us in the way everlasting.

We sinners do beseech thee to hear us, O Lord God. May it please thee to rule and govern thy holy Church universal, in the right way. May it please thee to keep and strengthen in the true worshipping of thee, in righteousness and holiness of life, thy servant GEORGE, our

most gracious King and Governor. May it please thee to rule his heart in thy faith, fear, and love ; and that he may evermore have affiance in thee, and ever seek thy honour and glory. May it please thee to be his defender and keeper; giving him the victory over all his enemies. May it please thee to bless and preserve all the Royal Family.

grant that we may both perceive and know what things we ought to do, and also may have grace and power faithfully to fulfil the same, through Jesus Christ our Lord. it
