ALMIGHTY God, who bast in

Mercy in the miraculous and gra-
cious deliverances of thy Church,
and in the protection of righteous
and religious Kings and States pro-
fessing thy holy and eternal truth,
from the wicked conspiracies, and
malicious practices of all the ene-
mies thereof: We yield thee our
unfeigned thanks and praise, for
the wonderful and mighty Deliver-
ance of our gracious Sovereign King
James the First, the Queen, the
Prince, and all the Royal Branches,
with the Nobility, Clergy, and Com-
mons of England, then assembled in
Parliament, by Popish treachery ap-
pointed as sheep to the slaughter, in a
most barbarous and savage manner,
beyond the examples of former ages.
From this unnatural Conspiracy, not
our merit, but thy mercy; not our
foresight, but thy providence delivered

Lord, not unto us, but unto thy Name be ascribed all honour and glory, in all Churches of the saints, from generation to generation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


CCEPT also, most gracious God, of our unfeigned thanks for filling our hearts again with joy and gladness, after the time that thou hadst afflicted us, and putting a new song into our mouths, by bringing His Majesty King William, upon this day, for the Deliverance of our Church and Nation from Popish tyranny and arbitrary power. We adore the wisdom and justice of thy Providence, which so timely interposed in our extreme danger, and disappointed all the designs of our enemies. We beseech thee, give us such a lively and lasting sense of what thou didst then, and hast since that time done for us, that we may not grow secure and careless in our obedience, by presuming upon thy great and undeserved goodness; but that it may lead us to repentance, and move us to be

the more diligent and zealous in ou

the duties of our Religion, which thou hast in a marvellous manner preserved to us. Let truth and justice, brotherly kindness and charity, devotion and piety, concord and unity, with all other virtues, so flourish among us, that they may be the stability of our times, and make this Church a praise in the earth. All which we humbly beg for the sake of our blessed Lord and Saviour. Amen.

In the end of the Liany (which shall always this Day be used) after the Collect [We humbly beseech thee, O Father, &c.] shall this be said which followeth.

We confess it has been of thy mercy alone, that we are not consumed: for our sins have cried to

heaven against us; and our iniquities justly called for vengeance upon us. But thou hast not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us after our iniquities; nor given us over, as we deserved, to be a prey to our enemies; but hast in mercy delivered us from their malice, and preserved us from death and destruction. Let the consideration of this thy repeated goodness, O Lord, work in us true repentance, that iniquity may not be our ruin. And increase in us more and more a lively faith and love, fruitful in all holy obedience; that thou mayest still continue thy favour, with the light of thy Gospel, to us and our posterity for evermore; and that for thy dear Son's sake, Jesus Christ our only Mediator and Advocate. Amen.

Amen. In the Communion Service, instead of the Collect for the Day, shall this which followeth be used.

mighty Protector, we thy unworthy servants do humbly present ourselves before thy Majesty, acknowledging thy power, wisdom, and goodness, in preserving the King, and the Three Estates of the Realm of England assembled in Parliament, from the destruction this day intended against them. Make us, we beseech thee, truly thankful for this, and for all other thy great mercies towards us; particularly for making this day again memorable, by a fresh instance of thy loving-kindness towards us. We bless thee for giving his late Majesty King William a safe arrival here, and for making all opposition fall before him, till he became our King and Governour. We beseech thee to protect and defend our Sovereign King GEORGE, and all the Royal Family, from all treasons and conspiracies; Preserve him in thy Lord, who didst this day disco- faith, fear, and love; Prosper his ver the snares of death that Reign with long happiness here on were laid for us, and didst wonder- earth; and crown him with everlastfully deliver us from the same; Being glory hereafter; through Jesus thou still our mighty Protector, and Christ our only Saviour and Redeemer. scatter our enemies that delight in Amen. blood: Infatuate and defeat their

counsels, abate their pride, asswage the higher powers; for there is

their malice, and confound their devices. Strengthen the hands of our gracious Sovereign King GEORGE, and all that are put in authority under

no power, but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power

resisteth the ordinance of God; and
they that resist shall receive to them-
selves damnation. For rulers are not
a terror to good works, but to the
evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of
the power? do that which is good,
and thou shalt have praise of the
same: for he is the minister of God
to thee for good. But if thou do that
which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth
not the sword in vain: for he is the
minister of God, a revenger to execute
wrath upon him that doeth evil. Where-
fore ye must needs be subject, not
only for wrath, but also for conscience
sake. For for this cause pay ye tribute
also; for they are God's ministers,
attending continually upon this very
thing. Render therefore to all their
dues; tribute to whom tribute is due,
custom to whom custom, fear to whom
fear, honour to whom honour.

in all the earth, and thy glory above the heavens; who on this day didst miraculously preserve our Church and State from the secret contrivance and hellish malice of Popish conspirators; and on this day also didst begin to give us a mighty deliverance from the open tyranny and oppression of the same cruel and blood-thirsty enemies: We bless and adore thy glorious Majesty, as for the former, so for

And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of: For the Son of man

And we humbly pray, that the devout sense of this thy repeated mercy may renew and increase in us a spirit of love and thankfulness to thee its only Author; a spirit of peaceable submission and obedience to our gracious Sovereign Lord, King GEORGE; and a spirit of fervent zeal for our holy Religion which thou hast so wonderfully rescued, and established, a blessing to us and our posterity. And this we beg for Jesus Christ his sake. Amen.
