O Blessed and mercifull Father, thy loue towards me sinfull creature is so exceeding great and vnspeakable, that I can not but giue vnto thee most humble thanks: namelie, for the shedding of the most pretious blood of thy deere sonne Iesu Christ; by the vertue whereof, thy wrath stirred vp against me wretched sinner, is pacified, my ransome is paid, the lawe is fulfilled, mine enimies are ourcome, and put to flight. In remembrance of this so noble a victorie, and of so great a benefit, I am come vnto this thy table, O mercifull father, to drinke Page  596 of this cup; desiring thee, that as my outward man is comforted by the drinking of this wine: so likewise my inward man may be comforted, and made strong by true faith in the pretious blood of thy most deere sonne. O Lord, and my heauenlie Father, giue me thy holie spirit, which may so rule and gouerne my hart, that I neuer be vnthankfull, nor forgetfull of this thine ex∣ceeding kindnesse: but to traine my life according to thy blessed will, that whatsoeuer I doo, speake or thinke, may be vnto the glorie of thy blessed name, and the health of my soule, through Iesus Christ our Lord,
