Ghost; born of the Virgin Mary; that he suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; that he went down into Hades, and also did rise again the third day; that he ascended into heaven, and liiteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; and from thence shall come again at the end of the world to judge the quick and the dead?

And dost thou believe in the Holy Ghoft; The Holy Catholick Church ; The Communion of Saints ; The remission of sins; The resurrection of the flesh; And everlasting life after death?

The fick person skall answer, All this I stedfastly believe. Then Mall the Priest examine the sick person, whether

he repent him truly of all his fins, and be in charity with the whole world; exhorting him to forgive from the bottom of his heart all persons that have offended him, and if he have offended any other, to ask their forgiveness; and where he hath done wrong or injury to any man, that he make amends to the uttermost of his power. And if he have not before disposed of bis goods, let him then be admonished to make his Will, and to declare his debts what he oweth, and what is owing to him, for the better discharging of his conscience, and the quieting of his Executors. But men should be often put in remembrance to take order for the settling of their temporal estates, whilf they are in

bealth. The Priest Mould not omit earnestly to move such fick perfons as are of ability, to be liberal to the

poor.

The

The foregoing exhortation and examination need not

be repeated every day, but only so often as the

Pries Mall fee convenient.
Then Mall the Priest kneel down and say, all kneeling.
REmember not, Lord, our iniquities, nor the ini-

quities of our forefathers. Spare us, good Lord, spare thy people, whom thou hast redeemed with thy most precious blood, and be not angry with us for ever.

Antw. Spare us, good Lord.
Pr. Lord, have mercy upon us.
Answ. Christ, have mercy upon us.
Pr. Lord, have mercy upon us.

Then shall all say the Lord's prayer.
OUR Father

, who 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 the

Answ. Who putteth his trust in thee.
Pr. Send him help from thy holy place ;

Then mall the Priest say the two Colleets following. O Lord, look down from heaven, behold, visit,

and relieve this thy servant. Look upon with the eyes of thy mercy, give him comfort and sure confidence in thee, defend him from the danger of the enemy, and keep him in perpetual peace and fafety, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen, HEAR uş, Almighty and most merciful God

and Saviour; extend thy accustomed goodness to this thy servant, who is grieved with fickness. Sanctify, we beseech thee, this thy fatherly correction to him; that the sense of his weakness may add strength to his faith, and seriousness to his repentance. That if it shall be thy good pleasure to restore him to his former health, be may lead the residue of his life in thy fear and to thy glory; or else give him grace so to take thy visitation, that after this painful life ended, be may attain everlasting joy and felicity, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. Then the Priest shall stand up, and laying his hand

upon the fick person's head, he shall say the following prayer over him, if he think proper; for this prayer is to be said or omitted at the discretion of the Priest

. O Most merciful God, who according to the mul

titude of thy mercies dost so put away the fins of those who truly repent, that thou rememberest them no more ; open

thine

eye

of

mercy upon this thy servant, who most earnestly desireth pardon and forgiveness. Renew in him, most loving Father, whatsoever hath been decayed by the fraud and malice of the devil, or by his own carnal will and frailness; preserve and continue this sick member in the unity of the church; consider bis contrition, accept bis tears, and afilwage his pain, as shall seem to thee most expedient for him. And forasmuch as he putteth his full trust only in thy mercy, impute not unto him his former sins, but strengthen him with thy blessed Spirit; and when thou art pleased to take him hence, take him unto thy favour, through the merits of thy most dearly beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

In te, Domine, Speravi. Psal. 71. IN N thee, O Lord, have I put my trust, let me ne

be put to confusion: but rid me, and deliver me in thy righteousness ; incline thine ear unto me, and save me.

Be thou my strong hold, whereunto I may alway resort: thou hast promised to help me, for thou art my house of defence, and my castle.

For thou, O Lord God, art the thing that I long for: thou art my hope, even from my youth.

Through thee have I been holden up ever since I was born: thou art he that took me out of my mother's womb; my praise shall be always of t.ee. 0 let

As for me I will patiently abide alway: and will praise thee more and more.

My mouth shall daily speak of thy righteousness and salvation : for I know no end thereof.

I will go forth in the strength of the Lord God: and will make mention of thy righteousness only.

Thou, O God, haft taught me from my youth up until now: therefore will I talk of thy wondrous works.

Forsake me not, O God, in mine old age, when I am gray-headed: until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to all them that are yet for to come.

Thy righteousness, O God, is very high, and great things are they that thou hast done; O God, who is like unto thee?

O spare me a little, that I may recover my strength: before I go hence, and be no more seen.

Pr. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

Answ. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen,

Then shall the Priest say, O Saviour of the world, who by thy cross and
