INTRODUCTION

EARLY shall my prayer come before
Thee.
Blessed art Thou, O Lord,
who broughtest forth of the earth,
wild beasts, cattle,
and all the reptiles,
for food, clothing, help;
and madest man after Thine image,
to rule the earth,
and blessedst him,
The fore‑counsel, fashioning hand,
breath of life, image of God,
appointment over the works,
charge to the Angels concerning him,
paradise.—
Heart, reins, eyes, ears, tongue, hands,
feet,
life, sense, reason, spirit, free will,
memory, conscience,
the revelation of God, writing of the
law,
oracles of prophets, music of psalms,
instruction of proverbs,
experience of histories,
worship of sacrifices.

Blessed art Thou, O Lord,
for Thy great and precious promise
on this day,
concerning the Life‑giving Seed,
and for its fulfilment in fulness of
the times
on this day.

Blessed art Thou, O Lord,
for the holy Passion
of this day.
O by Thy salutary sufferings
on this day,
save us, O Lord.
