A Form of Prayer with Thanksgiving to Almighty God, for having
put an end to the Great Rebellion, by the Reftitution of the King and Royal Family, and the Restoration of the Government after many Years interruption; which unspeakable Mercies were wonderfully completed upon the Twenty-ninth of May, in the Year 1660. And in memory thereof, that Day in every Year is, by Ad
of Parliament, appointed to be for ever kept holy. The AEt of Parliament made in the Tu'elfth, and confirmed in the
Thirteenth Year of King CHARLES the Second, for the Observation of the Twenty-ninth Day of May, yearly, as a Day of public Thanksgiving, is to be read publicly in all Churches at Morning Prager, immediately after the Nicene Creed, on
Lord's Day next before puiry such I wenty-ninth of May; and notice Jhall be
given for the due observation of the said Day. The Service shall be the same with the usual Office for Holy-Days;
except where it is in this Office otherwise appointed. If this Day fhall happen to be ascenfion-Day, or Whit-Sunday, the
Colleets of this Office are to be added to the Offices of those Fejtivals in their proper places; if it be Monday or Tuesday in Whitsun-week, or Trinity Sunday, the Proper Pfálms appointed for this Day, instead of those of ordinary course, Jhall be also used, and the Collect's added as before and in all these cases the rest of this Office Jhall be omitted: but if it shall happen to be any other Sunday, this whole Office Jhall be ufed, as it followeth, entirely. And what Festival soever shall happen to fall apon this folemn Day of Thanksgiving, the following Hymn, appointed instead of Venite exultemus, Jhall
be constantly used. Morning Prayer shall begin with The merciful and gracious these sentences.
