T. 22. The Saviour's blood and righteousness
My beauty is, my glorious dress;
Thus well array'd I need not fear,
When in his presence I appear.

None of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself; for whether we live, we live unto the Lord, and whether we die, we die unto the Lord; whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord's: for to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ. Glory be to Him who is the Resurrection and the Life, who quickeneth us, while in this dying state, and after we have obtained the true life, doth not suffer us to die any more. Glory be to Him in the church which waiteth for Him, and in that which is around Him, for ever and ever. Amen. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with us all. Amen.

LITANY AT BURIALS.
No. 2.

LoRD, have mercy upon us.
Christ, have mercy upon us.

Lord, have mercy upon us.

- Christ, hear us.

Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy hingdom come; thy mill 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 sinto temptation, but deliver us from evil : for thine is the kingdom, and the ponyer, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Holy Father, accept us as thy children in thy beloved Son, Jesus Christ, who came forth from thee, and came into the world, was made flesh, and dwelt among us, took on him the form of a servant, and hath redeemed us, lost and undone human creatures, from all sin and from death, with his holy and precious blood, and with his innocent suffering and dying; to the end that we should be his own, and in his kingdom live under him and serve him, in eternal righteousness, innocence, and happiness; forasmuch as he, being risen from the dead, liveth and reigneth, world without end. Amen.

Therefore, blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth; yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours.

Whosoever liveth and believeth in Christ, shall never die; for He is the Resurrection and the Life, and went to prepare a place for us, and will come again, and receive us unto himself, that where he is, there we may be also.

. Meanwhile none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself; for whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord; whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord's: for to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection : on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ.

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through on Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

T. 14. Now to the earth let these remains”
In hope committed be,
Until the body chang'd obtains
Bless'd immortality.

We poor sinners pray,
- IIear us, gracious Lord and God:

And keep us in everlasting fellowship with the church triumphant, and let us rest together in thy presence from our labours. Amen.

* During the singing of this verse, the corpse is committed to the grave. (* As touching children, Jesus saith, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not; for of such is, the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.)

We desire to depart, and to be with Christ, which is far better: we shall never taste death; and we shall attain unto the resurrection of the dead; for the body, which we shall put off, this grain of corruptibility, shall put on incorruption: our flesh shall rest in hope.

The Father and the Son, who quicken whom they will, and the Spirit of Him who raised up Jesus from the dead, will also quicken these our mortal bodies, if so be that the Spirit of God hath dwelt in them.

Glory be to Him who is the Resurrection and the Life. He was dead, and behold he liveth for evermore. And he that elieveth in Him, though he were dead, yet shall he live.

Glory be to Him in the church which waiteth for Him, and in that which is around Him, for ever and ever. Amen.

T. 79. While here, the great salvation,
Procur'd by Jesus' passion,
Our favourite theme shall be:
By virtue of his merit,
We shall true life inherit
In heaven to all eternity.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with us all. Amen.

* To be used only at the burial of a child.
