Thy grace, O Lord, to us impart,
And bless this hallowed rite ; Thy Spirit pour on every heart,
Ånd clothe our souls in white.
219. The God of Grace stablish you. THEY sent unto them Peter and John : Who, when they were come down, prayed
for them, That they might receive the Holy Ghost : (For as yet he was fallen upon none of
Acts viï, 14.
220. He shall Feed his Flock. (c. m.) Of Christ, O love to sing each day!
Of Christ, O love to learn !
O may our bosom burn !
And eyes that never sleep,
His feeble lambs and sheep.
And sweetly tune the tongue ;
Bids cares and follies all depart,
And helps along the young.
And numbers all their names ;
Their vows, their hearts, he claims.
221. Dead to sin, alive to God. KNOW ye not that so many of us as were
baptized into Jesus Christ Were baptized into his death ? Therefore we are buried with him by bap
tism into death : That like as Christ was raised up from the
dead By the glory of the Father, Even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Rom. vi. 3.
THE SACRAMENT OF THE LORD'S SUPPER.
For the continual remembrance of the sacrifice of the death of Christ, and of the benefits which we receive thereby.
222. I am the Bread of Life. (7's.)
Lamb of God, for sinners slain !
Alway with Thy Church art thou,
223. Christ our Passover sacrificed for us. The cup of blessing which we bless, Is it not the communion of the blood of
Christ? The bread which we break, Is it not the communion of the body of
Christ? For we, being many, are one bread and one
body : For we are all partakers of that one bread.
i Cor. x, 16.
SACRED PLACES AND TIMES. Consecration Service for Churches and
Churchyards. BLESSED be thy name, O Lord God, for that it pleaseth thee to have thy habitation among the sons of men upon earth. Grant that in this place, now set apart to thy service, thy holy name may be worshipped in truth and purity to all generations.
Vouchsafe, O Lord, to be now present with us who are here to consecrate this place to the honour of thy great name, separating it henceforth from all unhallowed, ordinary, and common uses, and dedicating it entirely to thy service and holy worship.
O God, thou hast taught us in thy Word that there is a difference between the spirit of a beast that goeth downwards to the earth, and the spirit of a man which goeth up to God who gave it. By the example of thy holy servants in all ages, thou hast taught us to set apart peculiar places where the bodies of thy saints may rest in peace, and be preserved from all indignities, while their souls are safely kept in the hands of their faithful Redeemer. Mercifully accept this work of ours, in separating this portion of land to that good service, .
224. Church is the House of God. (7's.)
In this house the Lord is near,
To their judgment they have passed,
225. Reverence in the House of God. KEEP thy foot when thou goest to the
house of God; And be more ready to hear, Than to give the sacrifice of fools : For they consider not that they do evil. Be not rash with thy mouth, And let not thine heart be hasty To utter anything before God: For God is in heaven, and thou upon earth : Therefore let thy words be few. Pay that which thou hast vowed.
Eccles. v. 1.
