The Elizabethan Book of Common Prayer (1559) was the form of worship that George Herbert used as a Priest. Although none of George Herbert's sermons survive, one man reports that they were about morality and the liturgy. We see moral teaching in "The Church Porch," and "The Church" poems hint at the liturgy. This edition of the services includes poems from The Temple 1633 amplifying the text from the Prayerbook. These services for George Herbert and his poems suggest a similarity if not an attribution. Here they are only intended for enjoyment and, perhaps, enlightenment, as all Herbert's poems are.
