More than they that watch for the morning;
I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
Let Israel hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is mercy,
And with him there is plenteous redemption.
And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

Quemadmodum.- From Ps. XLII.
AS the hart panteth after the water-brooks,
So panteth my soul after thee, O God.
My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God;
When shall I come and appear before God?
My tears have been my meat day and night,
While they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me.
For I had gone with the multitude; I went with them to the

house of God,
With the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept

holy-day.
Why art thou cast down, O my soul and why art thou disquieted

in me?
Hope thou in God; for I shall yet praise him,
Who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

Benedic, anima mea.-From Ps. CIII.

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;
Who forgiveth all thy sin,
And healeth all thine infirmities;
Who saveth thy life from destruction,
And crowneth thee with mercy and loving kindness.

O praise the Lord, ye angels of his, ye that excel in strength;
Ye that fulfil his commandment, and hearken unto the voice of his

word.
O praise the Lord, all ye his hosts;
Ye servants of his that do his pleasure.
O speak good of the Lord, all ye works of bis, in all places of his

dominion; Praise thou the Lord, O my soul.

Cantate Domino,- Ps. XCVIII.

O SING unto the Lord a new song;
For he hath done marvellous things,
With his own right hand, and with his holy arm,
Hath he gotten himself the victory.
The Lord declared his salvation;
His righteousness hath he openly showed in the sight of the

heathen. He hath remembered his mercy and truth toward the house of

Israel; And all the ends of the world have seen the salvation of our

God.
Show yourselves joyful unto the Lord, all .ye lands;
Sing, rejoice, and give thanks.
Praise the Lord upon the harp;
Sing to the harp with a psalm of thanksgiving.
With trumpets also and shawms,
O show yourselves joyful before the Lord the King.
Let the sea make a noise, and all hat therein is;
The round world, and they that dwell therein.
Let the floods clap their hands, and let the hills be joyful together

before the Lord;
For he cometh to judge the earth.
With righteousness shall he judge the world,
And the people with equity.

Jubilate Deo.-Ps. 0.

O BE joyful in the Lord, all ye lands;

Serve the Lord with gladness, and come before his presence with

a song Be ye sure that the Lord, he is God; It is he that hath made us and not we ourselves; we are his

people and the sheep of his pasture. O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his

courts with praise ;
Be thankful unto him, and speak good of his name.
For the Lord is gracious, his mercy is everlasting ;
And his truth endureth from generation to generation.

Deus misereatur.-Ps. LXVII. GOD be merciful unto us, and bless us, And show us the light of his countenance, and be merciful unto us ; That thy way may be known upon earth, Thy saving health among all nations. Let the people praise thee, O God; Yea, let all the people praise thee. O let the nations rejoice and be glad; For thou shalt judge the folk righteously, and govern the nations

upon earth.

Let the people praise thee, O God;
Yea, let all the people praise thee.
Then shall the earth bring forth her increase ;
And God, even our own God, shall give us his blessing.
God shall bless us;
And all the ends of the world shall fear him.

THE COMMUNION

OF

THE LORD'S SUPPER.

The Communion of the Lord's Supper is administered at such times as the Minister and Elders, in their discretion, appoint.

The service of Preparation for the Communion, at a convenient time before, follows the order of the Evening Service of the Lord's Day, with a suitable Sermon; or any other form which the Minister may prefer.

THE SALUTATION AND Doxology.
The Congregation standing, the Minister begins the service with a sentence
of Salutation from the Scriptnres.
After which the People chant with the Choir the Doxology:

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 PROFESSION OF FAITH.

All still standing, the People then, being invited by the Minister, say with him the Apostles Creed, as follows:

I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; froin thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

THE INVOCATION, AND THE LORD's PRAYER. The People then kneeling, or reverently bowing, the Minister offers the Prayer of Invocation; the Minister himself standing, both here and in all other prayers.

After the Invocation the Lord's Prayer is said by the People with the Minister, as follows:

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 debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

THE READING OF THE LAW.

The People then being seated, the Minister solemnly reads the Ten Commandments, with the Two Commandments wherein they are summed up by our Lord. And the following Response is sung by the Choir :

The Lord our God be with us;
Let him not leave us, nor forsake us;
That he may incline our hearts unto him,
To walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments.
