¶ When you be going towards the Church, the better to expell idle thoughts, and noifull cogitations, and to pre∣pare your harts to deuotion; euen by the waie as ye go, meditate and saie with your selfe some of these Psalmes and praiers following; the which also for more readi∣nesse would be learned by hart, and said without booke.

Praiers to be vsed going to Church. A Psalme.

I Was glad when they said vnto me; We will go into the house of the Lord; our feete shall stand in thy gates O Ierusalem.

Ierusalem is builded as a Citie that is at vnitie in it selfe.

For thither the Tribes go vp, e∣uen the Tribes of the Lord, to testi∣fie vnto Israel, and to giue thanks vnto the name of the Lord.

For there is the seate of iudgement, euen the seate of the house of Dauid.

O my soule, praie for the peace of Ierusalem, they shall prosper that loue it.

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