Our general aim therefore in this undertaking was, not to gratify this or that party in any their unreafonable demands; but to do that, which to our belt underliandings we conceived might molt tend to the prefervation of Peace and Unity in the Church 5 the procuring of Reverence, and exciting of Piety and Devotion in the publick Worlhip of God and the cut ting ofi'occafion from them that feek occalion ofcavil or quar rel againlt the Liturgy of the Church. And as to the feveral variations from the former Book, whether by Alteration, Adv dition, or otherwife, it (hall fuflice to give this general account, That molt of the Alterations were made, either firfi, for the better direclion of them that are to ofiiciate in any part of Divine Service; which is chiefly done in the Calendars and Rubricks: Or fecondly, for the more proper exprefling of fome words or phrafes of ancient ufage in terms more fuita ble to the language of the prefent times, and the clearer ex planation of fome other words and phrafes, that were either of doubtful fignification, or otherwife liable to mifconfiruc tion Or thirdly, for a more perfect rendering of fuch por tions of holy Scripture, as are inferted into the Liturgy; which, in the Epifiles and Gofpels efpecially, and in fundry other places, are now ordered to be read according to the lalt Tranf lation: and that it was thought convenient, that fome Prayers and Thankfgivings, fitted to fpecial occafions, fhould be added in their due places; particularly for thofe at Sea, together with an Office for the Baptifm of fuch as are of riper years which, although not fo neceltary when the former Book was compiled, yet by the growth of Anabaptifm, through the licentioufnefs of the late times crept in amongfi us, is now become neceffary, and may be always ufeful for the baptizing of Natives in our Plantations, and others converted to the Faith. If any man, who {hall defire a more particular account of'the feveral Alterations in any part of the Liturgy, {hall take the pains to compare the prefent Book with the former; we doubt not but the reafon of the change may eafily appear.
