Have I borne in mind that I am a temple of the Holy Ghost, and kept myself in thought, word, and deed, from everything that would defile the dwelling-place of God ?

A FORM OF CONFESSION. I will arise and go to my Father, and will say unto Him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and before Thee, and am no more worthy to be called Thy son.-S. Luke xv. 18, 19, O

I confess and bewail before Thee all the sins of thought, word, or deed, by which I have provoked' Thee to anger, especially [Here recount those sins of commission or of omission by which you feel that you have offended Almighty God, and for which you specially stand in need of forgivenes8]. Against Thee, O Lord, have I sinned, and to Thee do I make my confession. Turn not away Thy Face from Thy servant, whom Thou hast redeemed with the precious blood of Thy dear Son. Spare me, o merciful Father, I beseech Thee: and grant me Thy grace, that henceforth I may live in Thy fear and to Thy glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

PSALM CXXX.
UT of the deep have I called unto Thee, O
Lord : Lord, hear my voice.

0 let Thine ears consider well : the voice of my complaint.

If Thou, Lord, wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss : O Lord, who may abide it?

For there is mercy with Thee : therefore shalt Thou be feared.

I look for the Lord; my soul doth wait for Him : in His word is my trust.

My soul fleeth unto the Lord : before the morning watch, I say, before the morning watch.

O Israel, trust in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy : and with Him is plenteous redemption.

And He shall redeem Israel : from all his sins.

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.

will go into the house of the Lord. Our feet shall stand in thy gates : 0 Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is built as a city : that is at unity in itself.

For thither the tribes go up, even the tribes of the Lord : to testify unto Israel, to give thanks unto the Name of the Lord.

For my brethren and companions' sakes : I will wish thee prosperity.

Yea, because of the house of the Lord our God: I will seek to do thee good.

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