Lord, have mercy upon
Christ, have mercy
Lord, have mercy upon
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 our heavenly Father, high and mighty, King
of kings, Lord of lords, the only Ruler of princes, who dost from
thy throne behold all the dwellers upon earth; most heartily we
beseech thee with thy favour to behold our most Gracious Sovereign
Lady Queen Elizabeth; and so replenish her with the grace of thy
Holy Spirit, that she may always incline to thy will, and walk
in thy way: Endue her plenteously with heavenly gifts; grant her
in health and wealth long to live; strengthen her that she may
vanquish and overcome all her enemies; and finally after this
life she may attain everlasting joy and felicity, through Jesus
Christ our Lord. Amen.
Almighty God, the Fountain of all Goodness, We humbly
beseech thee to bless Philip Duke of Edinburgh, Charles Prince
of Wales and all the Royal Family: Endue them with thy Holy Spirit;
enrich them with thy Heavenly Grace; prosper them with all happiness;
and bring them to thine everlasting kingdom, through Jesus Christ
our Lord. Amen.
Almighty God, by whom alone Kings reign, and Princes
decree justice; and from whom alone cometh all counsel, wisdom,
and understanding; we thine unworthy servants, here gathered together
in thy Name, do most humbly beseech thee to send down thy Heavenly
Wisdom from above, to direct and guide us in all our consultations;
and grant that, we having thy fear always before our eyes, and
laying aside all private interests, prejudices, and partial affections,
the result of all our counsels may be to the glory of thy blessed
Name, the maintenance of true Religion and Justice, the safety,
honour, and happiness of the Queen, the publick wealth, peace
and tranquillity of the Realm, and the uniting and knitting together
of the hearts of all persons and estates within the same, in true
Christian Love and Charity one towards another, through Jesus
Christ our Lord and Saviour. Amen.
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,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love
of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost, be with us all evermore.
