Confession of Sin [+][-]

Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of Almighty God our heavenly Father, to render thanks for the great benefits that we have received at his hands, to set forth his most worthy praise, to hear this holy Word, and to ask, for ourselves and on behalf of others, those things that are necessary for our life and our salvation. And so that we may prepare ourselves in heart and mind to worship him, let us kneel in silence, and with penitent and obedient hearts confess our sins, that we may obtain forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy.

Silence may be kept.

Almighty and most merciful Father, we have erred and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep, we have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts, we have offended against thy holy laws, we have left undone those things which we ought to have done, and we have done those things which we ought not to have done. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, spare thou those who confess their faults, restore thou those who are penitent, according to thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesus our Lord; and grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake, that we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life, to the glory of thy holy Name. Amen.

The Almighty and merciful Lord grant us absolution and remission of all our sins, true repentance, amendment of life, and the grace and consolation of his Holy Spirit. Amen.

We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. Amen.

The Psalm or Psalms Appointed


Psalm 79 Deus, venerunt

O remember not our old sins but have mercy upon us and that soon for we are come to great misery.

  O GOD, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; *
      thy holy temple have they defiled, and made Jerusalem an heap of stones.
   The dead bodies of thy servants have they given to be meat unto the fowls of the air, *
      and the flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the land.
   Their blood have they shed like water on every side of Jerusalem, *
      and there was no man to bury them.
   We are become an open shame to our enemies, *
      a very scorn and derision unto them that are round about us.
   LORD, how long wilt thou be angry? *
      shall thy jealousy burn like fire for ever?
   Pour out thine indignation upon the heathen that have not known thee; *
      and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy Name.
   For they have devoured Jacob, *
      and laid waste his dwelling-place.
   O remember not our old sins, but have mercy upon us, and that soon; *
      for we are come to great misery.
   Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy Name: *
      O deliver us, and be merciful unto our sins, for thy Name's sake.
10    Wherefore do the heathen say, *
      Where is now their God?
11    O let the vengeance of thy servants' blood that is shed, *
      be openly showed upon the heathen, in our sight.
12    O let the sorrowful sighing of the prisoners come before thee; *
      according to the greatness of thy power, preserve thou those that are appointed to die.
13    And for the blasphemy wherewith our neighbours have blasphemed thee, *
      reward thou them, O Lord, sevenfold into their bosom.
14    So we, that are thy people, and sheep of thy pasture, shall give thee thanks for ever, *
      and will alway be showing forth thy praise from generation to generation.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: *
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

O remember not our old sins but have mercy upon us and that soon for we are come to great misery.

Psalm 80 Qui regis Israel

Turn us again, thou God of hosts: shew the light of thy countenance and we shall be whole.

  HEAR, O thou Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; *
      show thyself also, thou that sittest upon the Cherubim.
   Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, *
      stir up thy strength, and come and help us.
   Turn us again, O God; *
      show the light of thy countenance, and we shall be whole.
   O LORD God of hosts, *
      how long wilt thou be angry with thy people that prayeth?
   Thou feedest them with the bread of tears, *
      and givest them plenteousness of tears to drink.
   Thou hast made us a very strife unto our neighbours, *
      and our enemies laugh us to scorn.
   Turn us again, thou God of hosts; *
      show the light of thy countenance, and we shall be whole.
   Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt; *
      thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
   Thou madest room for it; *
      and when it had taken root, it filled the land.
10    The hills were covered with the shadow of it, *
      and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedar-trees.
11    She stretched out her branches unto the sea, *
      and her boughs unto the River.
12    Why hast thou then broken down her hedge, *
      that all they that go by pluck off her grapes?
13    The wild boar out of the wood doth root it up, *
      and the wild beasts of the field devour it.
14    Turn thee again, thou God of hosts, look down from heaven, *
      behold, and visit this vine;
15    And the place of the vineyard that thy right hand hath planted, *
      and the branch that thou madest so strong for thyself.
16    It is burnt with fire, and cut down; *
      and they shall perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.
17    Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, *
      and upon the son of man, whom thou madest so strong for thine own self.
18    And so will not we go back from thee: *
      O let us live, and we shall call upon thy Name.
19    Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts; *
      show the light of thy countenance, and we shall be whole.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: *
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Turn us again, thou God of hosts: shew the light of thy countenance and we shall be whole.

Psalm 81 Exultate Deo

Sing we merrily unto God our strength

  SING we merrily unto God our strength; *
      make a cheerful noise unto the God of Jacob.
   Take the psalm, bring hither the tabret, *
      the merry harp with the lute.
   Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, *
      even in the time appointed, and upon our solemn feast-day.
   For this was made a statute for Israel, *
      and a law of the God of Jacob.
   This he ordained in Joseph for a testimony, *
      when he came out of the land of Egypt, and had heard a strange language.
   I eased his shoulder from the burden, *
      and his hands were delivered from making the pots.
   Thou calledst upon me in troubles, and I delivered thee; *
      and heard thee what time as the storm fell upon thee.
   I proved thee also *
      at the waters of strife.
   Hear, O my people; and I will assure thee, O Israel, *
      if thou wilt hearken unto me,
10    There shall no strange god be in thee, *
      neither shalt thou worship any other god.
11    I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt: *
      open thy mouth wide, and I shall fill it.
12    But my people would not hear my voice; *
      and Israel would not obey me;
13    So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lusts, *
      and let them follow their own imaginations.
14    O that my people would have hearkened unto me! *
      for if Israel had walked in my ways,
15    I should soon have put down their enemies, *
      and turned my hand against their adversaries.
16    The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him; *
      but their time should have endured for ever.
17    I would have fed them also with the finest wheat-flour; *
      and with honey out of the stony rock would I have satisfied thee.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: *
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Sing we merrily unto God our strength

Psalm 79 Deus, venerunt

Remember not our past sins; let your compassion be swift to meet us; for we have been brought very low.

  O God, the heathen have come into your inheritance; they have profaned your holy temple; *
      they have made Jerusalem a heap of rubble.
  They have given the bodies of your servants as food for the birds of the air, *
      and the flesh of your faithful ones to the beasts of the field.
  They have shed their blood like water on every side of Jerusalem, *
      and there was no one to bury them.
  We have become a reproach to our neighbors, *
      an object of scorn and derision to those around us.
  How long will you be angry, O LORD? *
      will your fury blaze like fire for ever?
  Pour out your wrath upon the heathen who have not known you *
      and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon your Name.
  For they have devoured Jacob *
      and made his dwelling a ruin.
  Remember not our past sins; let your compassion be swift to meet us; *
      for we have been brought very low.
  Help us, O God our Savior, for the glory of your Name; *
      deliver us and forgive us our sins, for your Name's sake.
10   Why should the heathen say, "Where is their God?" *
      Let it be known among the heathen and in our sight that you avenge the shedding of your servants' blood.
11   Let the sorrowful sighing of the prisoners come before you, *
      and by your great might spare those who are condemned to die.
12   May the revilings with which they reviled you, O Lord, *
      return seven-fold into their bosoms.
13   For we are your people and the sheep of your pasture; *
      we will give you thanks for ever and show forth your praise from age to age.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: *
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost:*
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Psalm 80 Qui regis Israel

Restore us, O God of hosts; show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.

  Hear, O Shepherd of Israel, leading Joseph like a flock; *
      shine forth, you that are enthroned upon the cherubim.
  In the presence of Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, *
      stir up your strength and come to help us.
  Restore us, O God of hosts; *
      show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.
  O LORD God of hosts, *
      how long will you be angered despite the prayers of your people?
  You have fed them with the bread of tears; *
      you have given them bowls of tears to drink.
  You have made us the derision of our neighbors, *
      and our enemies laugh us to scorn.
  Restore us, O God of hosts; *
      show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.
  You have brought a vine out of Egypt; *
      you cast out the nations and planted it.
  You prepared the ground for it; *
      it took root and filled the land.
10   The mountains were covered by its shadow *
      and the towering cedar trees by its boughs.
11   You stretched out its tendrils to the Sea *
      and its branches to the River.
12   Why have you broken down its wall, *
      so that all who pass by pluck off its grapes?
13   The wild boar of the forest has ravaged it, *
      and the beasts of the field have grazed upon it.
14   Turn now, O God of hosts, look down from heaven; behold and tend this vine; *
      preserve what your right hand has planted.
15   They burn it with fire like rubbish; *
      at the rebuke of your countenance let them perish.
16   Let your hand be upon the man of your right hand, *
      and son of man you have made so strong for yourself.
17   And so will we never turn away from you; *
      give us life, that we may call upon your Name.
18   Restore us, O LORD God of hosts; *
      show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: *
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost:*
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Restore us, O God of hosts; show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.

Psalm 81 Exultate Deo

Sing with joy to God our strength.

  Sing with joy to God our strength *
      and raise a loud shout to the God of Jacob.
  Raise a song and sound the timbrel, *
      the merry harp, and the lyre.
  Blow the ram's-horn at the new moon, *
      and at the full moon, the day of our feast.
  For this is a statute for Israel, *
      a law of the God of Jacob.
  He laid it as a solemn charge upon Joseph, *
      when he came out of the land of Egypt.
  I heard an unfamiliar voice saying, *
      "I eased his shoulder from the burden; his hands were set free from bearing the load."
  You called on me in trouble, and I saved you; *
      I answered you from the secret place of thunder and tested you at the waters of Meribah.
  Hear, O my people, and I will admonish you: *
      O Israel, if you would but listen to me!
  There shall be no strange god among you; *
      you shall not worship a foreign god.
10   I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt and said, *
      "Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it."
11   And yet my people did not hear my voice, *
      and Israel would not obey me.
12   So I gave them over to the stubbornness of their hearts, *
      to follow their own devices.
13   Oh, that my people would listen to me! *
      that Israel would walk in my ways!
14   I should soon subdue their enemies *
      and turn my hand against their foes.
15   Those who hate the LORD would cringe before him, *
      and their punishment would last for ever.
16   But Israel would I feed with the finest wheat *
      and satisfy him with honey from the rock.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: *
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost:*
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Sing with joy to God our strength.

Psalm 26 Judica me, Domine

LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house.

  BE thou my Judge, O LORD, for I have walked innocently: *
      my trust hath been also in the LORD, therefore shall I not fall.
   Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; *
      try out my reins and my heart.
   For thy loving-kindness is ever before mine eyes; *
      and I will walk in thy truth.
   I have not dwelt with vain persons; *
      neither will I have fellowship with the deceitful.
   I have hated the congregation of the wicked; *
      and will not sit among the ungodly.
   I will wash my hands in innocency, O LORD; *
      and so will I go to thine altar;
   That I may show the voice of thanksgiving, *
      and tell of all thy wondrous works.
   LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, *
      and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
   O shut not up my soul with the sinners, *
      nor my life with the blood-thirsty;
10    In whose hands is wickedness, *
      and their right hand is full of gifts.
11    But as for me, I will walk innocently: *
      O deliver me, and be merciful unto me.
12    My foot standeth right: *
      I will praise the LORD in the congregations.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: *
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house.

Psalm 28 Ad te, Domine

Hear the voice of my humble petitions when I cry unto thee.

  UNTO thee will I cry, O LORD, my strength: *
      think no scorn of me; lest, if thou make as though thou hearest not, I become like them that go down into the pit.
   Hear the voice of my humble petitions, when I cry unto thee; *
      when I hold up my hands towards the mercyseat of thy holy temple.
   O pluck me not away, neither destroy me with the ungodly and wicked doers, *
      which speak friendly to their neighbours, but imagine mischief in their hearts.
   Reward them according to their deeds, *
      and according to the wickedness of their own inventions.
   Recompense them after the work of their hands; *
      pay them that they have deserved.
   For they regard not in their mind the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands; *
      therefore shall he break them down, and not build them up.
   Praised be the LORD; *
      for he hath heard the voice of my humble petitions.
   The LORD is my strength, and my shield; my heart hath trusted in him, and I am helped; *
      therefore my heart danceth for joy, and in my song will I praise him.
   The LORD is my strength, *
      and he is the wholesome defence of his anointed.
10    O save thy people, and give thy blessing unto thine inheritance: *
      feed them, and set them up for ever.

Hear the voice of my humble petitions when I cry unto thee.

Psalm 26 Judica me, Domine

LORD, I love the house in which you dwell.

  Give judgment for me, O LORD, for I have lived with integrity; *
      I have trusted in the Lord and have not faltered.
  Test me, O LORD, and try me; *
      examine my heart and my mind.
  For your love is before my eyes; *
      I have walked faithfully with you.
  I have not sat with the worthless, *
      nor do I consort with the deceitful.
  I have hated the company of evildoers; *
      I will not sit down with the wicked.
  I will wash my hands in innocence, O LORD, *
      that I may go in procession round your altar,
  Singing aloud a song of thanksgiving *
      and recounting all your wonderful deeds.
  LORD, I love the house in which you dwell *
      and the place where your glory abides.
  Do not sweep me away with sinners, *
      nor my life with those who thirst for blood,
10   Whose hands are full of evil plots, *
      and their right hand full of bribes.
11   As for me, I will live with integrity; *
      redeem me, O LORD, and have pity on me.
12   My foot stands on level ground; *
      in the full assembly I will bless the LORD.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: *

Hear the voice of my prayer when I cry out to you.

  O LORD, I call to you; my Rock, do not be deaf to my cry; *
      lest, if you do not hear me, I become like those who go down to the Pit.
  Hear the voice of my prayer when I cry out to you, *
      when I lift up my hands to your holy of holies.
  Do not snatch me away with the wicked or with the evildoers, *
      who speak peaceably with their neighbors, while strife is in their hearts.
  Repay them according to their deeds, *
      and according to the wickedness of their actions.
  According to the work of their hands repay them, *
      and give them their just deserts.
  They have no understanding of the LORD'S doings, nor of the works of his hands; *
      therefore he will break them down and not build them up.
  Blessed is the LORD! *
      for he has heard the voice of my prayer.
  The LORD is my strength and my shield; *
      my heart trusts in him, and I have been helped;
  Therefore my heart dances for joy, *
      and in my song will I praise him.
10   The LORD is the strength of his people, *
      a safe refuge for his anointed.
11   Save your people and bless your inheritance; *

Then she let them down by a cord through the window: for her house was upon the town wall, and she dwelt upon the wall. And she said unto them, Get you to the mountain, lest the pursuers meet you; and hide yourselves there three days, until the pursuers be returned: and afterward may ye go your way. And the men said unto her, We will be blameless of this thine oath which thou hast made us swear. Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father's household, home unto thee. And it shall be, that whosoever shall go out of the doors of thy house into the street, his blood shall be upon his head, and we will be guiltless: and whosoever shall be with thee in the house, his blood shall be on our head, if any hand be upon him. And if thou utter this our business, then we will be quit of thine oath which thou hast made us to swear. And she said, According unto your words, so be it. And she sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the scarlet line in the window. And they went, and came unto the mountain, and abode there three days, until the pursuers were returned: and the pursuers sought them throughout all the way, but found them not. So the two men returned, and descended from the mountain, and passed over, and came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told him all things that befell them: And they said unto Joshua, Truly the LORD hath delivered into our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do faint because of us.

Then she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was built into the city wall, so that she dwelt in the wall. And she said to them, "Go into the hills, lest the pursuers meet you; and hide yourselves there three days, until the pursuers have returned; then afterward you may go your way." The men said to her, "We will be guiltless with respect to this oath of yours which you have made us swear. Behold, when we come into the land, you shall bind this scarlet cord in the window through which you let us down; and you shall gather into your house your father and mother, your brothers, and all your father's household. If any one goes out of the doors of your house into the street, his blood shall be upon his head, and we shall be guiltless; but if a hand is laid upon any one who is with you in the house, his blood shall be on our head. But if you tell this business of ours, then we shall be guiltless with respect to your oath which you have made us swear." And she said, "According to your words, so be it." Then she sent them away, and they departed; and she bound the scarlet cord in the window. They departed, and went into the hills, and remained there three days, until the pursuers returned; for the pursuers had made search all along the way and found nothing. Then the two men came down again from the hills, and passed over and came to Joshua the son of Nun; and they told him all that had befallen them. And they said to Joshua, "Truly the LORD has given all the land into our hands; and moreover all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of us."

Then she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was on the outer side of the city wall and she resided within the wall itself. She said to them, "Go toward the hill country, so that the pursuers may not come upon you. Hide yourselves there three days, until the pursuers have returned; then afterward you may go your way." The men said to her, "We will be released from this oath that you have made us swear to you if we invade the land and you do not tie this crimson cord in the window through which you let us down, and you do not gather into your house your father and mother, your brothers, and all your family. If any of you go out of the doors of your house into the street, they shall be responsible for their own death, and we shall be innocent; but if a hand is laid upon any who are with you in the house, we shall bear the responsibility for their death. But if you tell this business of ours, then we shall be released from this oath that you made us swear to you." She said, "According to your words, so be it." She sent them away and they departed. Then she tied the crimson cord in the window. They departed and went into the hill country and stayed there three days, until the pursuers returned. The pursuers had searched all along the way and found nothing. Then the two men came down again from the hill country. They crossed over, came to Joshua son of Nun, and told him all that had happened to them. They said to Joshua, "Truly the LORD has given all the land into our hands; moreover all the inhabitants of the land melt in fear before us."

A Reading from Romans 11:13-24

For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry in order to make my fellow Jews jealous, and thus save some of them. For if their rejection means the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead? If the dough offered as first fruits is holy, so is the whole lump; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in their place to share the richness of the olive tree, do not boast over the branches. If you do boast, remember it is not you that support the root, but the root that supports you. You will say, "Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in." That is true. They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand fast only through faith. So do not become proud, but stand in awe. For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off. And even the others, if they do not persist in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again. For if you have been cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these natural branches be grafted back into their own olive tree.

Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I glorify my ministry in order to make my own people jealous, and thus save some of them. For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead! If the part of the dough offered as first fruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; and if the root is holy, then the branches also are holy. But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in their place to share the rich root of the olive tree, do not boast over the branches. If you do boast, remember that it is not you that support the root, but the root that supports you. You will say, "Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in." That is true. They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand only through faith. So do not become proud, but stand in awe. For if God did not spare the natural branches, perhaps he will not spare you. Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's kindness toward you, provided you continue in his kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off. And even those of Israel, if they do not persist in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again. For if you have been cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these natural branches be grafted back into their own olive tree.

Thou art worthy, O Lamb that wast slain, *
and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood
Out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation: *
and hast made us unto our God kings and priests.
Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power *
be unto him that sitteth upon the throne

Splendor and honor and kingly power *

For you created everything that is, *
and by your will they were created and have their being;
And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain, *
for with your blood you have redeemed for God,
From every family, language, people, and nation, *
a kingdom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits upon the throne, *
and to Christ the Lamb,
Be worship and praise, dominion and splendor, *
for ever and for evermore.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost:*

The Song of Zechariah Benedictus Dominus Deus
Luke 1:68-79

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, *
for he hath visited and redeemed his people;
And hath raised up a mighty salvation for us *
in the house of his servant David,
As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, *
which have been since the world began:
That we should be saved from our enemies, *
and from the hand of all that hate us;
To perform the mercy promised to our forefathers, *
and to remember his holy covenant;
To perform the oath which he sware to our forefather Abraham, *
that he would give us,
That we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies *
might serve him without fear,
In holiness and righteousness before him, *
all the days of our life.

And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest, *
for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord
to prepare his ways;
To give knowledge of salvation unto his people *
for the remission of their sins,
Through the tender mercy of our God, *
whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us;
To give light to them that sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death, *
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: *
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

If any place will not receive you shake its dust from your feet as you leave.

The Song of Zechariah Benedictus Dominus Deus
Luke 1: 68-79

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel; *
he has come to his people and set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty savior, *
born of the house of his servant David.
Through his holy prophets he promised of old,
that he would save us from our enemies, *
from the hands of all who hate us.
He promised to show mercy to our fathers *
and to remember his holy covenant.
This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham, *
to set us free from the hands of our enemies,
Free to worship him without fear, *
holy and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.

You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High, *
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,
To give his people knowledge of salvation *
by the forgiveness of their sins.
In the tender compassion of our God *
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,
To shine on those who dwell in darkness and the
shadow of death, *
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost:*
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

If any place will not receive you shake its dust from your feet as you leave.

Hymn: Telluris Ingens Conditor

Meter: LM

Earth's mighty Maker, whose command
Raised from the sea the solid land,
And drove each billowy heap away,
And bade the earth stand firm for aye:

That so, with flowers of golden hue,
The seeds of each it might renew;
And fruit trees bearing fruit might yield--
And pleasant pasture of the field;

Our spirit's rankling wounds efface
With dewy freshness of Thy grace:
That grief may cleanse each deed of ill,
And o'er each lust may triumph still.

Let every soul Thy law obey,
And keep from every evil way;
Rejoice each promised good to win
And flee from every mortal sin.

O Father, that we ask be done,
Through Jesus Christ, Thine only Son;
Who, with the Holy Ghost and Thee,
Doth live and reign eternally.

V. O satisfy us early with thy mercy.
R. That we may rejoice and be glad.

Almighty, everlasting God, who by the cooperation of the Holy Spirit, didst prepare the body and soul of the glorious Virgin-Mother Mary to become a worthy dwelling for Thy Son; grant that we who rejoice in her commemoration may, by her loving intercession, be delivered from present evils and from the everlasting death. Amen.

V. May the divine help remain with us always.
R. And with our absent brothers and sisters. Amen.

Salve Regina

Mary, we hail you, Mother and Queen compassionate;
Mary, most humble, great and pure, we hail you.
To you we exiles, children of Eve lift our voices.
To you we sing praises, because by the Spirit, you brought
forth to us the Savior.
Turn now, therefore, O our intercessor, your eyes of pity and lovingkindness upon us sinners.
Then at the last, when our earthly journey has been ended, show us Jesus, the blessed fruit of your womb.
O gentle
O tender
O gracious Virgin Mary

V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R.That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:
Almighty and everlasting God, who by the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit, prepared the body and soul of the glorious Virgin Mary to become a habitation for your Son: Grant that, as we rejoice in her obedience, we may have the support of her loving intercession, and may be delivered from our present evils and eternal death; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

V. May the divine help remain with us always.
R. And with our absent brothers and sisters. Amen.
