Most mighty God, terrible in thy judgments, and O ,

wonderful in thy doings towards the children of men, who in thy heavy displeasure didst fuffer the life of our late gracious Sovereign to be this day taken away by wicked hands; we thy unworthy servants humbly confess, that the fins of this Nation have been the cause which hath brought this heavy judgment upon us. But, O gracious God, when thou makest inquit.

on for bloud, lay not the guilt of this innocent blond, (the shedding whereof nothing but the blood of thủy Son can expiate ) lay it not to the charge of the people of this land, nor let it ever be required of us, or our posterity. Be merciful, be merciful unto thy people, whom thou hast redeemed ; and be not angry with us for ever; but pardon us for thy mercies fake, through the merits of thy Son our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. g In the end of the Litany (which shall always this day be used) after the Collect [We humbly beseech thee, o Father, cc.] These three Collects are to be used.

Thy property is alwayes to have mercy, to thee only it appertaineth to forgive sins; Spare us therefore, good Lord, spare thy people whom thou hast redeemed ; enter not into judgment with thy fervants, who are vile earth, and miserable finners: 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 Chrift our Lord. Amen. g Then shall the people fay this that followeth;

punishment; And in thy wrath thinkest

: upon mercy. Spare thy people , good Lord, spare them , and let not thine heritage be brought to confufion.

is precious ; we magnifie thy Name for that aburidant grace bestowed on our late Martyred Soveraign ; by which he was enabled fo cheerfully to follow the steps of his blesed Master and Saviour, in a constant meek suffering of all barbarous indignities, and at lat resisting unto bloud, and even then, according to the same pattern, praying for his murtherers. Let his memory, O Lord, be over blessed among us, that we may follow the example of his patience, and charity : And grant, that this our land may be freed from the vengeance of his bloud, and thy mercy glorified in the forgiveness of our sins; and all for Jesus Christ his lake.

governance, that thy Church may joyfully serve thee all godly quietness, through Jefus Christ. Amen.

The Epistle, S. Pet. 2. 13. Ubmit your felves to every ordinance of man for the

Lords fake; whether it be to the King as fupreme ; or unto governours, as unto them that are sent by him, For the punishment of evil-doers, and for the praise of hem that do well. For fo is the will of God, that with vell-doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of colish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness,but as the servants of God. Hojour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Hoour the King. Servants be subject to your Masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. For this is thank-worthy,if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For what glory is it, if when ye be buffeted for your Faults, ye shall take it patiently ? but if when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently; this is acceptable with God. For even hereunto were ye called ; because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps; who did no sin, neither was guilefound in his mouth.

And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. Again he fent other servants, more then the first: and they did unto them likewise. But last of all, he sent unto them his son,saying, They will reverence my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the Heir, come, let us kill him,
