SHORT MORNING

PRAYERS FOR CHILDREN.

In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

Blessed be the holy and undivided Trinity, now and for ever.

Amen.

A MORNING HYMN.
Dear Saviour! I have learned to know

That thou dost ever list to me;
And that, wherever I may go,

I still am always seen by thee.
O teach me, Lord, what I should say,

Let truth direct my every word,
Nor let me speak throughout the day

Aught that should not by thee be heard. Oh! keep me innocent; and free

From every fault, from every sin ; That thou, my God! mayest never see

A naughty thought my breast within. Dear Jesus! let me be thine own!

To rise to thee my life was given : As flowers that on the earth are sown

Shoot up and bear their sweets to heaven.

B

THE LORD'S PRAYER. Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our tres passes as we forgive them that trespass against

And lead us not into temptation : but deliver us from evil. Amen.

THE HAIL MARY. Hail Mary, full of grace ! our Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

The APOSTLES' CREED. I believe in God the Father Almighty, creator 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; sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the living 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 life everlasting. Amen.
