O Lord God of our Salvation, who hast been exceedingly gracious unto this land, we offer unto thee our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving for the same: humbly beseeching thee to accept this our unfeigned, though unworthy oblation of ourselves ; vowing all holy obedience in thought, word, and work, unto thy Divine Majesty ; and promising all loyal and dutiful allegiance to thy servant GEORGE our King; whom we beseech thee to bless with all increase of grace, honour, and happiness in this world, and to crown him with immortality and glory in the world

to come, for Jesus Christ his sake, our only Lord and Saviour.

Almighty God, Father of all mercies, we thine unworthy servants do give thee most humble and hearty thanks for all thy goodness and loving-kindness to us, and to all men. We bless thee for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life; but above all, for thine inestimable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ; for the means of grace here, and for the hope of glory hereafter.

Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done in 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
