FOR THE ADMINISTRATION
The excellent and affecting office for the Holy Commillion, prescribed by the Church, is the best guide to his devotions at the aliar that the cominiinicant can possibly have, an! renders alınost unnecessary all other aid. It should be the business of the communicant seriously to attend to this service, and hearily and irerely to join in it. As he goes up towards the chancel, let him secretly use the follow ing ejaculations :
In the multitude of thy mercies, O Lord, do I now approach thine altar.
I will pay thee my vows now in the presence of all thy people.
Thou art my God, and I will bless thee; thou art my God, and I will exilt thee.
God is the Lord, by whom we receive light; bind the sicrifice with cords, even to the horns of the altar.
When the minister read the sentences of the Offer tory, let the commun call offer up after each yen tence, the short jarru ation annexed.
