Blessed be the Lord for all his mercies, for giving us food to eat and raiment to wear, and for delivering us from many evils which our sins have justly deserved. We thank Thee, especially, O Lord, for the gift of Jesus Christ, Thy Son, for whose sake we pray Thee to pardon our offences (sic), and to receive our souls. Amen.
