The fourth Psalme.

THy clemencie and blessing most mightie God we craue, and require of thee full instantlie.

Let thy countenance shine vpon vs, haue compassion vpon vs, that here in earth wee may find out the waie which leadeth vnto thee, and may attaine thy saluation among the Gentils.

O that all people would confesse thee with louing Page  128 harts for thy manifold benefits and pleasures, which they haue receiued at thy hands, who dost with iustice gouerne men, and art their leader vpon earth!

Powre downe Lord thy goodnesse, and continuall blessings vpon vs, and then shall the earth yeeld vnto thee glorie and praise, and to vs fruits for meate.

Thou God the father blesse vs, thou God the sonne blesse vs, and thou God the holie Ghost blesse vs: yea thou holie, blessed, and glorious Trinitie, grant vs thy continuall blessing.

O that all the coasts of the earth (Lord God) would feare and stand in awe of thee!

Would God that we also might studie to worke no man either pleasure or displeasure that should be a∣gainst thy will; but that we may doo all things accor∣ding to thy commandements!

Glorie be to the father, &c. As it was in the begin, &c.
