The spirit of grace graunt us, O Lord
to keep these lawes our harts restore
and cause us all with one accord
to magnifie thy name therefore.

For of our solves no strength wee have
to keep these lawes after thy will:
Thy might therefore, O Christ, we crave
that wee in thee may them fulfill.

Lord, for thy names sake graunt us this ,
thou art our strenght, Oh Saviour Christ:
O thee to speed how should wee misse,
in whom out treasure doth consist.

To thee for evermore bee praise,
with the Father in ech respect:
and with the holy Spirit always,
the conforter of thine elect.
