Beholding your nakednesse, praie thus.
LOrd how wretched, miserable, poore, blind and naked am I! I am naked, O Lord, yea euen starke naked, for that thou seest me in my bloud and corruption. Open mine eies also, I beseech thee, that I may more and more see my nakednesse; feele my mi∣serie, and confesse my wretchednes; that thou of verie pitie and compassion maist cloath me with thine innocencie, and holie vertues; and so couer my filthinesse, that mine enimies neuer behold the same to my reproch. Finallie, giue me the grace of perfect charitie, to doo the works of faith acceptable to thee, especiallie so to cloath the naked, and after my power to releeue the needie: that when I shall depart hence naked and bare, as euer I was borne, and shall carie awaie nothing of all my labours; yet in thy sight, at the generall iudgement daie, I may not appeere na∣ked of good works, or void of the marriage garment of faith, and the gifts of grace, through Iesus Christ our Lord,
Iob. 1, 21.
