Page 97 - PREVENT us, O Lord, in all our doings with thy most gracious favour, and further us with thy continual help ; that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in thee, we may glorify thy holy name, and finally by thy mercy obtain everlasting life ; c through &c.
Page 117 - Almighty GOD, unto Whom all hearts be open, all desires known, and from Whom no secrets are hid; Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of Thy HOLY SPIRIT, that we may perfectly love Thee, and worthily magnify Thy Holy Name; through CHRIST our LORD.
Page 48 - So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. . For no man ever yet hated his own flesh ; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the Church : for we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.
Page 99 - O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.
Page 122 - All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, Out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
Page 117 - GOD, whose blessed Son was manifested that he might destroy the works of the devil, and make us the sons of GOD, and heirs of eternal life ; grant us, we beseech thee, that having this hope, we may purify ourselves, even as he is pure ; that when he shall appear again with power and great glory, we may be made like unto him in his eternal and glorious kingdom ; where, with thee, O FATHER, and thee, O HOLY GHOST, he liveth and reigneth, ever one GOD, world without end. Amen.
Page 123 - Have ye not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife : and they twain shall be one flesh ? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Page 121 - O may my soul on Thee repose, , And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close ; Sleep, that may me more vigorous make, To serve my God when I awake. 5 When in the night I sleepless lie, My soul with heavenly thoughts supply ; Let no ill dreams disturb my rest, No powers of darkness me molest.
Page 121 - MY HEART is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
