Here the Minister shall rehearse the Articles of the Faith, saying thus;

VEL oo credjal ayns Jee yn Ayr Ooilley-niartal, Chroo niau as thalloo?

As ayns Yeesey Creest e ynrycan Vac nyn Jiarn? As dy row eh er ny ghientyn jeh'n Spyrryd Noo; dy rug eh jeh'n Voidyn Moirrey: dy ren eh surranse fo Pontius Pilate, dy row eh er ny chrossey, marroo, as oanluckit; dy jagh eh sheese gys niurin, as niyrgeddin dy dirree eh reesht yn trass laa; dy jagh eh seose gys niau as dy vel eh ny hoie er laue yesh Yee yn Ayr ooilley-niartal; as veih shen dy jig eh reesht ec jerrey'n theihll, dy vriwnys ny bio as ny merriu?

The sick Person shall answer,

Ooilley shoh ta mee dy shickyr credjal.

Then shall the Minister examine whether he repent him truly of his sins, and be in charity with all the world; exhorting him to forgive from the bottom of his heart all Persons that have offended him; and if he hath offended any other, to ask them forgiveness; and where he hath done injury or wrong to any man, that he make amends to the uttermost of his power. And if he hath not before disposed of his goods, let him then be admonished to make his Will, and to declare his Debts, what he oweth, and [436] what is owing unto him; for the better discharging of his conscience, and the quietness of his Executors. But men should often be put in remembrance to take order for the settling of their temporal estates whilst they are in health.

These words before rehearsed may be said before the Minister begin his Prayer, as he shall see cause.

The Minister shall not omit earnestly to move such sick Persons as are of ability to be liberal to the poor.

Here shall the sick Person be moved to make a special Confession of his sins, if he feel his conscience troubled with any weighty matter. After which Confession the Priest shall absolve him (if he humbly and heartily desire it) after this sort.

Amen.

And then the Priest shall say the Collect following.
