WE yeeld thee most hartie thanks, O heauenlie Father; for that it hath pleased thee to regenerate vs with the fountaine of water, by faith in the bloud of thy sonne Iesus Christ, and to purge vs from that originall sinne, which we receiued of the old Eue. But who is able, oh Lord, to Page  566 to giue thee sufficient praises? Or who can expresse thy louing kindnesse and great mercies towards man∣kinde, who hast not onlie redeemed him from the yoke of the lawe, the bondage of hell, and destruction of the diuell: but also like a mercifull and louing father, euen in our first entrance into this world, washedst vs from iniquitie, and hast giuen vs the Sacrament of Bap∣tisme, euen as a memoriall of our election, in thy Sonne Iesus Christ our Lord, whereby beeing made thine adopted children, we may by the sanctification of thy spirit, inherit the euerlasting kingdome, through the same Iesus Christ our Lord,

Amen.
