THE

Order for Compline,

OR,

PRAYERS BEFORE BED-TIME.




All standing up, the Priest shall say,

Blessed be the name of the Lord.
Answer. From this time forth for evermore.
Priest. Almighty God grant us a quiet night and a perfect end.
Answer. Amen.

THE LESSON.
I S. Peter, v. 8.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren which are in the world.

Answer. But Thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
Priest. Our help is in the Name of the Lord;
Answer. Who hath made heaven and earth.
