THE SIXTH HOUR OF PRAYER, AT THE Twelfth or Last Hour of the Day, About VI. in the Evening.

Deut. 32. 29.
O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would con∣sider their latter end.
Job 14. 1, 2.
Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble: he cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down; he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.

Page 86

PRaise the Lord, O my Soul, and all that is within me praise his holy Name.

Praise the Lord, O my Soul, and forget not all his benefits,

Which forgiveth all thy sin, and healeth all thy infirmities;

Which saveth thy life from de∣struction, and crowneth thee with mercy and loving kindness.

OUR Father which art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy Name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done in Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily Bread, and forgive us our Trespasses as we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from Evil. For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory for ever and ever. Amen.

O Lord, open thou my lips.

And my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be world without end. Amen.

Psal. 90.

LOrd Thou hast been our re∣fuge from one generation to another.

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever the earth and the world were made, Thou art God from everlasting, and world without end.

Thou turnest man to destructi∣on: again thou sayest, come again ye children of men.

For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday, seeing that is past as a watch in the night.

Page 88

As soon as thou scatterest them they are even as a sleep, and fade away suddenly like the grass:

In the morning it is green, and groweth up; but in the evening it is cut down, dried up and wi∣thered.

For we consume away in thy displeasure, and are afraid at thy wrathful indignation.

Thou hast set our misdeeds be∣fore thee, and our secret sins in the sight of thy countenance.

For when Thou art angry, all our days are gone; we bring our years to an end, as it were a tale that is told.

The days of our age are three∣score years and ten; and though men be so strong that they come to fourscore years, yet is their strength then but labour and sor∣row; so soon passeth it away, and we are gone.

But who regardeth the power of thy wrath? for even thereafter

Page 89

as a man feareth, so is thy dis∣pleasure.

O teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts un∣to wisdom.

Turn Thee again, O Lord, at the last, and be gracious unto thy servants.

O satisfie us with thy mercy and that soon; so shall we rejoyce and be glad all the days of our life.

Comfort us again now after the time that thou hast plagued us, and for the years wherein we have suffered adversity.

Shew thy servants thy work, and their children thy glory.

And the glorious Majesty of the Lord our God be upon us. Pro∣sper Thou the work of our hands upon us, O prosper Thou our handy-work.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be world without end. Amen.

The Song of S. Mary.

MY soul doth magnifie the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoyced in God my Savi∣our.

For he hath regarded the low∣liness of his hand-maiden.

For behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed:

For he that is Mighty hath mag∣nified me, and Holy is his name.

And his mercy is on them that fear him throughout all generati∣ons.

He hath shewed strength with his arm, he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts;

He hath put down the mighty

Page 91

from their seat, and hath exalted the humble and meek.

He hath filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he hath sent empty away.

He remembring his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel, as he promised to our forefathers Abraham and his seed for ever.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

As it wrs in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be world without end. Amen.

O Lord God, who hast created the light and darkness, and by the continual interchanges of day and night puttest us in mind of our transitory condition, and the shortness of our abode here, Give us grace to set our selves about the work of salvation,

Page 92

while the day of salvation lasteth; that when the night of death cometh, and our Lord shall call us to account, we may receive the reward of good and faithful servants, and enter into the joy of our Master Jesus Christ. Amen.

NOW our Lord Jesus Christ him∣self, and God even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting con∣solation, and good hope through grace, comfort our hearts, and stablish us in every good word and work.

To Him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
