The Hymne or praier for night.
PRaise ye the Lord his seruants all, lift vp to him your hands,
The night singers in Gods courts, in all Christian lands.
Praise we the Lord our God & king, which made the earth & heuen,
His blessing be on vs this night, which made the planets seuen.
Into thy hands O Lord our God, our soules we do commend,
This night from sinne & Sathans power, thy mercie vs defend.
We laud thee Father for thy grace,
We praise the Sonne which made vs free:
We thanke the holie Spirit for our solace,
Which is one God and persons three:
Amen.
