Another thankesgiuing for the goodnesse of God to vs.
O Almightie God, and euer-ruling King, whose infinite power and maiestie our wits can not comprehend; whose glorious brightnesse with Page 176 our mortall eies, we can not behold; whose woonde∣rous works and manifold mercies the tongs of men can not sufficientlie declare. Good Lord I yeeld thee most humble thanks, for thy singular great gifts and benefits bestowed vpon me a sinner. Good Lord thou hast blessed me with knowledge, with increase and plentie of all things; thou hast giuen mee friends, health, and rest, that I should eate my meate with ioie, and praise thee in all thy gifts and works. I knowe that I haue no good thing, but it commeth from thee, and oulie for thy mercies sake, thou hast so regarded me thy seruant. Wherefore good Lord, I beseech thee to graunt me thy grace withall, that I may vse these thy gifts to thy honour and glorie, and the comfort of them that neede; that vsing the talent which thou hast lent me, I may become a good seruant, and obtaine eternall blisse, the promised hire to such as doo well. Uouchsafe good Lord, for thy sonne our Sauiour Ie∣sus Christ his sake, to heare my praiers.
Almightie God, refresh me with thy grace, I beseech thee; comfort me with thy mercie, and blesse me; that safe from all euils, free from feare of all dangers, in peace and quietnesse, I may sing praises to thy holie name, and reioice in thee with thine elected for euer and euer,
