Psalm xl. 14. WITHDRAW not thou thy mercy from me, O LORD : let thy loving-kindness and thy truth alway preserve me.

15. For innumerable troubles are come about me; my sins have taken such hold upon me that I am not able to look up : yea, they are more in number than the hairs of my head, and my heart hath failed me.

16. O LORD, let it be thy pleasure to deliver me : make haste, O LORD, to help me.

19. Let all those that seek thee be joyful and glad in thee : and let such as love thy salvation say alway, The LORD be praised.

lxiv. 23. Up, LORD, why sleepest thou? awake, and be not absent from us for ever.

14. Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and forgettest our misery and trouble?

26. Arise, and help us, and deliver us for thy mercy's sake.

SHAYTER.

538 FROM THE COMMUNION SERVICE. .

With angels and archangels, and with all the company of heaven, we laud and magnify thy glorious Name; evermore praising thee, and saying, Holy, LORD God of hosts, heaven and earth are full of thy glory. Glory be to thee, O Lord most high. Amen.

[PRING, MAURICE.

539

WORTHY art thou, O LORD, of all our time; worthy the praises of all thy creatures. Every moment of our lives is bound to bless thee, since every moment subsists by thy goodness.

[BECKWITH.

1 KINGS i. 38. ZADOK the priest and Nathan the prophet anointed Solomon King, and all the people rejoiced and said, God save the King! Long live the King! May the King live for ever! Hallelujah. Amen.

(HANDEL. 541

God that madest earth and heaven,

Darkness and night!
Who the day for toil hath given,

For rest the night.
May thine angel guards defend us,
Slumber sweet thy mercy send us,
Holy dreams and hopes attend us,
This livelong night.

(MATTHEWS from Hummel.

542 Job iii. 13, 17, 18, 19.

How still and peaceful is the grave !

There, life's vain tumults past,
Th' appointed house, by heav'n's decree,

Receives us all at last.
The wicked there from troubling cease,

Their passions rage no more;
And there the weary pilgrim rests

From all the toils he bore.
There rests the pris’ners, now releas'd

From slav'ry's sad abode;
No more they hear the oppressor's voice,
· Or dread the tyrant's rod.
There servants, masters, small and great,

Partake the same repose ;
And there in peace the ashes mix

Of those who once were foes.
All, levelld by the hand of death,

Lie sleeping in the tomb,
Till God in judgment calls them forth
To meet their final doom.

(EBDON.

543 FROM THE BURIAL SERVICE.

Man that is born of a woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery. He cometh up, and is cut down, like a flower: he fleeth as it were a shadow, and never continueth in one stay. In the midst of life we are in death : of whom may we seek for succour, but of thee, O LORD, who for our sins art justly displeased ? I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, From henceforth blessed are the dead which die in the Lord : Even so, saith the Spirit, for they rest from their labours. The LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the Name of the LORD. Amen.

[HEMPEL.

PSALM xcv.
O COME, loud anthems let us sing,
Loud thanks to our Almighty King ;
For we our voices high should raise
When our salvation's rock we praise ;
To him address, in joyful songs,
The praise that to his Name belongs.

[HEATHCOTE from HANDEL.
