I Doo thanke thee, my most mercifull and hea∣uenlie Father, by thy deerelie beloued sonne Iesu Christ, that this night thou hast giuen me sleepe and rest, preseruing me from hurt Page  104 and perill. I crie thee mercie for mine offences, and most humblie beseech thee, that thou wilt likewise this daie keepe me from sinne and all euill, so that all my thoughts, words and works may please thee. I doo commit my selfe, both bodie and soule, and all things that I go about into thy hands; beseeching thee that thine holie spirit may abide with me, least my deadlie aduersarie the diuell haue power ouer me,

Amen.
