At the Sun-rising, praie.

O Lord Iesus Christ, which art the true Sunne of the world, euermore arising, and neuer going downe; which by thy most whole some appe∣ring and light, dooest bring foorth, preserue, nourish, and refresh all things, as well that are in heauen, as also that are on earth: I beseech thee mercifullie & fauourablie to shine into our harts, that the night and darkenesse of sinnes, and the mists of errors, on euerie side driuen awaie; thou brightlie shining within our harts, we may all our life space go without anie stumbling or offence, and may decentlie and seemelie walke as in the daie time, and cleare sun∣shine, being pure and cleane from the works of darke∣nesse, and abounding in all good works, which GOD hath prepared for vs to walke in,

The Lords name be praised, from the rising of the sunne, vnto the going downe of the same.
Psal. 113, verse, 3.
To you that feare my name, shall the sunne of righteous∣nesse arise and shine.
Mala. 4, verse, 2.
