Confession of Sin

Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of
Almighty God our heavenly Father, to set forth his praise, to
hear his 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.

Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
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.

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.

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.

Christ our Passover Pascha nostrum
1 Corinthians 5:7-8; Romans 6:9-11; 1 Corinthians 15:20-22

Alleluia.
Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us; *
therefore let us keep the feast,
Not with old leaven,
neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, *
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Alleluia.

Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; *
death hath no more dominion over him.
For in that he died, he died unto sin once; *
but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, *
but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Alleluia.

Christ is risen from the dead, *
and become the first fruits of them that slept.
For since by man came death, *
by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, *
even so in Christ shall all be made alive. Alleluia.

Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; *
death no longer has dominion over him.
The death that he died, he died to sin, once for all; *
but the life he lives, he lives to God.
So also consider yourselves dead to sin, *
and alive to God in Jesus Christ our Lord. Alleluia.

Christ has been raised from the dead, *
the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.

The Psalm or Psalms Appointed Use Rite II PsalmsUse Rite I Psalms

Forsake me not O LORD my God; be not thou far from me.

Psalm 38. Domine, ne in furore.

  PUT me not to rebuke, O LORD, in thine anger; *
neither chasten me in thy heavy displeasure:
   For thine arrows stick fast in me, *
and thy hand presseth me sore.
   There is no health in my flesh, because of thy displeasure; *
neither is there any rest in my bones, by reason of my sin.
   For my wickednesses are gone over my head, *
and are like a sore burden, too heavy for me to bear.
   My wounds stink, and are corrupt, *
through my foolishness.
   I am brought into so great trouble and misery, *
that I go mourning all the day long.
   For my loins are filled with a sore disease, *
and there is no whole part in my body.
   I am feeble and sore smitten; *
I have roared for the very disquietness of my heart.
   Lord, thou knowest all my desire; *
and my groaning is not hid from thee.
10    My heart panteth, my strength hath failed me, *
and the light of mine eyes is gone from me.
11    My lovers and my neighbours did stand looking upon my trouble, *
and my kinsmen stood afar off.
12    They also that sought after my life laid snares for me; *
and they that went about to do me evil talked of wickedness, and imagined deceit all the day long.
13    As for me, I was like a deaf man, and heard not; *
and as one that is dumb, who doth not open his mouth.
14    I became even as a man that heareth not, *
and in whose mouth are no reproofs.
15    For in thee, O LORD, have I put my trust; *
thou shalt answer for me, O Lord my God.
16    I have required that they, even mine enemies, should not triumph over me; *
for when my foot slipt, they rejoiced greatly against me.
17    And I truly am set in the plague, *
and my heaviness is ever in my sight.
18    For I will confess my wickedness, *
and be sorry for my sin.
19    But mine enemies live, and are mighty; *
and they that hate me wrongfully are many in number.
20    They also that reward evil for good are against me; *
because I follow the thing that good is.
21    Forsake me not, O LORD my God; *
be not thou far from me.

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.

Forsake me not O LORD my God; be not thou far from me.

O LORD, do not forsake me; be not far from me, O my God.

Psalm 38 Domine, ne in furore

  O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger; *
do not punish me in your wrath.
  For your arrows have already pierced me, *
and your hand presses hard upon me.
  There is no health in my flesh, because of your indignation; *
there is no soundness in my body, because of my sin.
  For my iniquities overwhelm me; *
like a heavy burden they are too much for me to bear.
  My wounds stink and fester *
by reason of my foolishness.
  I am utterly bowed down and prostrate; *
I go about in mourning all the day long.
  My loins are filled with searing pain; *
there is no health in my body.
  I am utterly numb and crushed; *
I wail, because of the groaning of my heart.
  O Lord, you know all my desires, *
and my sighing is not hidden from you.
10   My heart is pounding, my strength has failed me, *
and the brightness of my eyes is gone from me.
11   My friends and companions draw back from my affliction; *
my neighbors stand afar off.
12   Those who seek after my life lay snares for me; *
those who strive to hurt me speak of my ruin and plot treachery all the day long.
13   But I am like the deaf who do not hear, *
like those who are mute and who do not open their mouth.
14   I have become like one who does not hear *
and from whose mouth comes no defense.
15   For in you, O LORD, have I fixed my hope; *
you will answer me, O Lord my God.
16   For I said, "Do not let them rejoice at my expense, *
those who gloat over me when my foot slips."
17   Truly, I am on the verge of falling, *
and my pain is always with me.
18   I will confess my iniquity *
and be sorry for my sin.
19   Those who are my enemies without cause are mighty, *
and many in number are those who wrongfully hate me.
20   Those who repay evil for good slander me, *
because I follow the course that is right.
21   O LORD, do not forsake me; *
be not far from me, O my God.
22   Make haste to help me, *
O Lord of my salvation.

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

O LORD, do not forsake me; be not far from me, O my God.

Shew thy servants thy work and their children thy glory.

Psalm 90. Domine, refugium.

  LORD, thou hast been our refuge, *
from one generation to another.
   Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever the earth and the world were made, *
thou art God from everlasting, and world without end.
   Thou turnest man to destruction; *
again thou sayest, Come again, ye children of men.
   For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, *
and as a watch in the night.
   As soon as thou scatterest them they are even as a sleep; *
and fade away suddenly like the grass.
   In the morning it is green, and groweth up; *
but in the evening it is cut down, dried up, and withered.
   For we consume away in thy displeasure, *
and are afraid at thy wrathful indignation.
   Thou hast set our misdeeds before thee; *
and our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
   For when thou art angry all our days are gone: *
we bring our years to an end, as it were a tale that is told.
10    The days of our age are threescore years and ten; and though men be so strong that they come to fourscore years, *
yet is their strength then but labour and sorrow; so soon passeth it away, and we are gone.
11    But who regardeth the power of thy wrath? *
or feareth aright thy indignation?
12    So teach us to number our days, *
that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
13    Turn thee again, O LORD, at the last, *
and be gracious unto thy servants.
14    O satisfy us with thy mercy, and that soon: *
so shall we rejoice and be glad all the days of our life.
15    Comfort us again now after the time that thou hast plagued us; *
and for the years wherein we have suffered adversity.
16    Show thy servants thy work, *
and their children thy glory.
17    And the glorious majesty of the LORD our God be upon us: *
prosper thou the work of our hands upon us; O prosper thou our handy-work.

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.

Shew thy servants thy work and their children thy glory.

Psalm 91. Qui habitat.

  WHOSO dwelleth under the defence of the Most High, *
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
   I will say unto the LORD, Thou art my hope, and my stronghold; *
my God, in him will I trust.
   For he shall deliver thee from the snare of the hunter, *
and from the noisome pestilence.
   He shall defend thee under his wings, and thou shalt be safe under his feathers; *
his faithfulness and truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
   Thou shalt not be afraid for any terror by night, *
nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
   For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, *
nor for the sickness that destroyeth in the noon-day.
   A thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy right hand; *
but it shall not come nigh thee.
   Yea, with thine eyes shalt thou behold, *
and see the reward of the ungodly.
   For thou, LORD, art my hope; *
thou hast set thine house of defence very high.
10    There shall no evil happen unto thee, *
neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11    For he shall give his angels charge over thee, *
to keep thee in all thy ways.
12    They shall bear thee in their hands, *
that thou hurt not thy foot against a stone.
13    Thou shalt go upon the lion and adder: *
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet.
14    Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him; *
I will set him up, because he hath known my Name.
15    He shall call upon me, and I will hear him; *
yea, I am with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and bring him to honour.
16    With long life will I satisfy him, *
and show him my salvation.

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.

For thou LORD art my hope.

Psalm 92. Bonum est confiteri.

  IT is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, *
and to sing praises unto thy Name, O Most Highest;
   To tell of thy loving-kindness early in the morning, *
and of thy truth in the night season;
   Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the lute; *
upon a loud instrument, and upon the harp.
   For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy works; *
and I will rejoice in giving praise for the operations of thy hands.
   O LORD, how glorious are thy works! *
thy thoughts are very deep.
   An unwise man doth not well consider this, *
and a fool doth not understand it.
   When the ungodly are green as the grass, and when all the workers of wickedness do flourish, *
then shall they be destroyed for ever; but thou, LORD, art the Most Highest for evermore.
   For lo, thine enemies, O LORD, lo, thine enemies shall perish; *
and all the workers of wickedness shall be destroyed.
   But my horn shall be exalted like the horn of an unicorn; *
for I am anointed with fresh oil.
10    Mine eye also shall see his lust of mine enemies, *
and mine ear shall hear his desire of the wicked that arise up against me.
11    The righteous shall flourish like a palm-tree, *
and shall spread abroad like a cedar in Lebanon.
12    Such as are planted in the house of the LORD, *
shall flourish in the courts of the house of our God.
13    They also shall bring forth more fruit in their age, *
and shall be fat and well-liking;
14    That they may show how true the LORD my strength is, *
and that there is no unrighteousness in him.

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.

For thou LORD hast made me glad through thy works.

Show your servants your works and your splendor to their children.

Psalm 90 Domine, refugium

  Lord, you have been our refuge *
from one generation to another.
  Before the mountains were brought forth, or the land and the earth were born, *
from age to age you are God.
  You turn us back to the dust and say, *
"Go back, O child of earth."
  For a thousand years in your sight are like yesterday when it is past *
and like a watch in the night.
  You sweep us away like a dream; *
we fade away suddenly like the grass.
  In the morning it is green and flourishes; *
in the evening it is dried up and withered.
  For we consume away in your displeasure; *
we are afraid because of your wrathful indignation.
  Our iniquities you have set before you, *
and our secret sins in the light of your countenance.
  When you are angry, all our days are gone; *
we bring our years to an end like a sigh.
10   The span of our life is seventy years, perhaps in strength even eighty; *
yet the sum of them is but labor and sorrow, for they pass away quickly and we are gone.
11   Who regards the power of your wrath? *
who rightly fears your indignation?
12   So teach us to number our days *
that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.
13   Return, O LORD; how long will you tarry? *
be gracious to your servants.
14   Satisfy us by your loving-kindness in the morning; *
so shall we rejoice and be glad all the days of our life.
15   Make us glad by the measure of the days that you afflicted us *
and the years in which we suffered adversity.
16   Show your servants your works *
and your splendor to their children.
17   May the graciousness of the LORD our God be upon us; *
prosper the work of our hands; prosper our handiwork.

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

Show your servants your works and your splendor to their children.

You have made the LORD your refuge.

Psalm 91 Qui habitat

  He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, *
abides under the shadow of the Almighty.
  He shall say to the LORD, "You are my refuge and my stronghold, *
my God in whom I put my trust."
  He shall deliver you from the snare of the hunter *
and from the deadly pestilence.
  He shall cover you with his pinions, and you shall find refuge under his wings; *
his faithfulness shall be a shield and buckler.
  You shall not be afraid of any terror by night, *
nor of the arrow that flies by day;
  Of the plague that stalks in the darkness, *
nor of the sickness that lays waste at mid-day.
  A thousand shall fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, *
but it shall not come near you.
  Your eyes have only to behold *
to see the reward of the wicked.
  Because you have made the LORD your refuge, *
and the Most High your habitation,
10   There shall no evil happen to you, *
neither shall any plague come near your dwelling.
11   For he shall give his angels charge over you, *
to keep you in all your ways.
12   They shall bear you in their hands, *
lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13   You shall tread upon the lion and the adder; *
you shall trample the young lion and the serpent under your feet.
14   Because he is bound to me in love, therefore will I deliver him; *
I will protect him, because he knows my Name.
15   He shall call upon me, and I will answer him; *
I am with him in trouble; I will rescue him and bring him to honor.
16   With long life will I satisfy him, *
and show him my salvation.

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

You have made the LORD your refuge.

You have made me glad by your acts, O LORD.

Psalm 92 Bonum est confiteri

  It is a good thing to give thanks to the LORD, *
and to sing praises to your Name, O Most High;
  To tell of your loving-kindness early in the morning *
and of your faithfulness in the night season;
  On the psaltery, and on the lyre, *
and to the melody of the harp.
  For you have made me glad by your acts, O LORD; *
and I shout for joy because of the works of your hands.
  LORD, how great are your works! *
your thoughts are very deep.
  The dullard does not know, nor does the fool understand, *
that though the wicked grow like weeds, and all the workers of iniquity flourish,
  They flourish only to be destroyed for ever; *
but you, O LORD, are exalted for evermore.
  For lo, your enemies, O LORD, lo, your enemies shall perish, *
and all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
  But my horn you have exalted like the horns of wild bulls; *
I am anointed with fresh oil.
10   My eyes also gloat over my enemies, *
and my ears rejoice to hear the doom of the wicked who rise up against me.
11   The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, *
and shall spread abroad like a cedar of Lebanon.
12   Those who are planted in the house of the LORD *
shall flourish in the courts of our God;
13   They shall still bear fruit in old age; *
they shall be green and succulent;
14   That they may show how upright the LORD is, *
my Rock, in whom there is no fault.

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

You have made me glad by your acts, O LORD.

The Lessons

A Reading from Joshua 3:1-13

Early in the morning Joshua rose and set out from Shittim with all the Israelites, and they came to the Jordan. They camped there before crossing over. At the end of three days the officers went through the camp and commanded the people, "When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God being carried by the levitical priests, then you shall set out from your place. Follow it, so that you may know the way you should go, for you have not passed this way before. Yet there shall be a space between you and it, a distance of about two thousand cubits; do not come any nearer to it." Then Joshua said to the people, "Sanctify yourselves; for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you." To the priests Joshua said, "Take up the ark of the covenant, and pass on in front of the people." So they took up the ark of the covenant and went in front of the people. The LORD said to Joshua, "This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, so that they may know that I will be with you as I was with Moses. You are the one who shall command the priests who bear the ark of the covenant, 'When you come to the edge of the waters of the Jordan, you shall stand still in the Jordan.'" Joshua then said to the Israelites, "Draw near and hear the words of the LORD your God." Joshua said, "By this you shall know that among you is the living God who without fail will drive out from before you the Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites, and Jebusites: the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is going to pass before you into the Jordan. So now select twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one from each tribe. When the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan flowing from above shall be cut off; they shall stand in a single heap."

Early in the morning Joshua rose and set out from Shittim, with all the people of Israel; and they came to the Jordan, and lodged there before they passed over. At the end of three days the officers went through the camp and commanded the people, "When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God being carried by the Levitical priests, then you shall set out from your place and follow it, that you may know the way you shall go, for you have not passed this way before. Yet there shall be a space between you and it, a distance of about two thousand cubits; do not come near it." And Joshua said to the people, "Sanctify yourselves; for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you." And Joshua said to the priests, "Take up the ark of the covenant, and pass on before the people." And they took up the ark of the covenant, and went before the people. And the LORD said to Joshua, "This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. And you shall command the priests who bear the ark of the covenant, `When you come to the brink of the waters of the Jordan, you shall stand still in the Jordan.'" And Joshua said to the people of Israel, "Come hither, and hear the words of the LORD your God." And Joshua said, "Hereby you shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Hivites, the Per'izzites, the Gir'gashites, the Amorites, and the Jeb'usites. Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is to pass over before you into the Jordan. Now therefore take twelve men from the tribes of Israel, from each tribe a man. And when the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan shall be stopped from flowing, and the waters coming down from above shall stand in one heap."

And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they removed from Shittim, and came to Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they passed over. And it came to pass after three days, that the officers went through the host; And they commanded the people, saying, When ye see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after it. Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore. And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to morrow the LORD will do wonders among you. And Joshua spake unto the priests, saying, Take up the ark of the covenant, and pass over before the people. And they took up the ark of the covenant, and went before the people. And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to magnify thee in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee. And thou shalt command the priests that bear the ark of the covenant, saying, When ye are come to the brink of the water of Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan. And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and hear the words of the LORD your God. And Joshua said, Hereby ye shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites. Behold, the ark of the covenant of the LORD of all the earth passeth over before you into Jordan. Now therefore take you twelve men out of the tribes of Israel, out of every tribe a man. And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the LORD of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap.

Arise, shine, for thy light is come, *
and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth; *
and gross darkness the people:
But the Lord shall arise upon thee, *
and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, *
and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; *
they shall not be shut day nor night.
They shall call thee, The City of the Lord, *
The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, *
wasting nor destruction within thy borders.
But thou shalt call thy walls, Salvation, *
and thy gates Praise.
The sun shall no more be thy light by day; *
neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee:
But the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, *
and thy God thy glory.

Thou art the everlasting Son of the Father.
When thou tookest upon thee to deliver man,
thou didst humble thyself to be born of a Virgin.
When thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death,
thou didst open the kingdom of heaven to all believers.
Thou sittest at the right hand of God, in the glory of the Father.
We believe that thou shalt come to be our judge.

You, Christ, are the king of glory,
the eternal Son of the Father.
When you became man to set us free
you did not shun the Virgin’s womb.
You overcame the sting of death
and opened the kingdom of heaven to all believers.
You are seated at God’s right hand in glory.
We believe that you will come and be our judge.
Come then, Lord, and help your people,
bought with the price of your own blood,
and bring us with your saints
to glory everlasting.

A Reading from Romans 11:25-36

So that you may not claim to be wiser than you are, brothers and sisters, I want you to understand this mystery: a hardening has come upon part of Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved; as it is written, "Out of Zion will come the Deliverer; he will banish ungodliness from Jacob." "And this is my covenant with them, when I take away their sins." As regards the gospel they are enemies of God for your sake; but as regards election they are beloved, for the sake of their ancestors; for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Just as you were once disobedient to God but have now received mercy because of their disobedience, so they have now been disobedient in order that, by the mercy shown to you, they too may now receive mercy. For God has imprisoned all in disobedience so that he may be merciful to all. O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! "For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?" "Or who has given a gift to him, to receive a gift in return?" For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever. Amen.

Lest you be wise in your own conceits, I want you to understand this mystery, brethren: a hardening has come upon part of Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles come in, and so all Israel will be saved; as it is written, "The Deliverer will come from Zion, he will banish ungodliness from Jacob"; "and this will be my covenant with them when I take away their sins." As regards the gospel they are enemies of God, for your sake; but as regards election they are beloved for the sake of their forefathers. For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable. Just as you were once disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, so they have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may receive mercy. For God has consigned all men to disobedience, that he may have mercy upon all. O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! "For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?" "Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?" For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory for ever. Amen.

For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

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.

to keep thy righteous judgments.
107    I am troubled above measure: *
quicken me, O LORD, according to thy word.
108    Let the free-will offerings of my mouth please thee, O LORD; *
and teach me thy judgments.
109    My soul is alway in my hand; *
yet do I not forget thy law.
110    The ungodly have laid a snare for me; *
but yet I swerved not from thy commandments.
111    Thy testimonies have I claimed as mine heritage for ever; *
and why? they are the very joy of my heart.

even unto the end.

yet I do not forget your law.

and he that keepeth thee will not sleep.
   Behold, he that keepeth Israel *
shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The LORD hath done great things for them.
   Yea, the LORD hath done great things for us already; *
whereof we rejoice.
   Turn our captivity, O LORD, *
as the rivers in the south.
   They that sow in tears *
shall reap in joy.
   He that now goeth on his way weeping, and beareth forth good seed, *
shall doubtless come again with joy, and bring his sheaves with him.

Psalm 126 In convertendo

  When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, *
then were we like those who dream.
  Then was our mouth filled with laughter, *
and our tongue with shouts of joy.
  Then they said among the nations, *
” LORD has done great things for them.”
  The LORD has done great things for us, *
and we are glad indeed.
  Restore our fortunes, O LORD, *
like the watercourses of the Negev.
  Those who sowed with tears *
will reap with songs of joy.
  Those who go out weeping, carrying the seed, *
will come again with joy, shouldering their sheaves.

Chapter

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation.
If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.

2 Corinthians 5:17-18

Confession of Sin

Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of
Almighty God our heavenly Father, to set forth his praise, to
hear his 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.Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
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

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.

Shew thy servants thy work and their children thy glory.

Psalm 94. Deus ultionum.

  O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth, *
thou God, to whom vengeance belongeth, show thyself.
   Arise, thou Judge of the world, *
and reward the proud after their deserving.
   LORD, how long shall the ungodly, *
how long shall the ungodly triumph?
   How long shall all wicked doers speak so disdainfully, *
and make such proud boasting?
   They smite down thy people, O LORD, *
and trouble thine heritage.
   They murder the widow and the stranger, *
and put the fatherless to death.
   And yet they say, Tush, the LORD shall not see, *
neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
   Take heed, ye unwise among the people: *
O ye fools, when will ye understand?
   He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? *
or he that made the eye, shall he not see?
10    Or he that instructeth the heathen, *
it is he that teacheth man knowledge; shall not he punish?
11    The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, *
that they are but vain.
12    Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, *
and teachest him in thy law;
13    That thou mayest give him patience in time of adversity, *
until the pit be digged up for the ungodly.
14    For the LORD will not fail his people; *
neither will he forsake his inheritance;
15    Until righteousness turn again unto judgment: *
all such as are true in heart shall follow it.
16    Who will rise up with me against the wicked? *
or who will take my part against the evil doers?
17    If the LORD had not helped me, *
it had not failed, but my soul had been put to silence.
18    But when I said, My foot hath slipt; *
thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.
19    In the multitude of the sorrows that I had in my heart, *
thy comforts have refreshed my soul.
20    Wilt thou have any thing to do with the throne of wickedness, *
which imagineth mischief as a law?
21    They gather them together against the soul of the righteous, *
and condemn the innocent blood.
22    But the LORD is my refuge, *
and my God is the strength of my confidence.
23    He shall recompense them their wickedness, and destroy them in their own malice; *
yea, the LORD our God shall destroy them.

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.

For thou LORD art my hope.

Show your servants your works and your splendor to their children.

Psalm 93 Dominus regnavit

  The LORD is King; he has put on splendid apparel; *
the LORD has put on his apparel and girded himself with strength.
  He has made the whole world so sure *
that it cannot be moved;
  Ever since the world began, your throne has been established; *
you are from everlasting.
  The waters have lifted up, O LORD, the waters have lifted up their voice; *
the waters have lifted up their pounding waves.
  Mightier than the sound of many waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea, *
mightier is the LORD who dwells on high.
  Your testimonies are very sure, *
and holiness adorns your house, O LORD, for ever and for evermore.

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

Show your servants your works and your splendor to their children.

You have made the LORD your refuge.

Psalm 94 Deus ultionum

  O LORD God of vengeance, *
O God of vengeance, show yourself.
  Rise up, O Judge of the world; *
give the arrogant their just deserts.
  How long shall the wicked, O LORD, *
how long shall the wicked triumph?
  They bluster in their insolence; *
all evildoers are full of boasting.
  They crush your people, O LORD, *
and afflict your chosen nation.
  They murder the widow and the stranger *
and put the orphans to death.
  Yet they say, "The LORD does not see, *
the God of Jacob takes no notice."
  Consider well, you dullards among the people; *
when will you fools understand?
  He that planted the ear, does he not hear? *
he that formed the eye, does he not see?
10   He who admonishes the nations, will he not punish? *
he who teaches all the world, has he no knowledge?
11   The LORD knows our human thoughts; *
how like a puff of wind they are.
12   Happy are they whom you instruct, O Lord! *
whom you teach out of your law;
13   To give them rest in evil days, *
until a pit is dug for the wicked.
14   For the LORD will not abandon his people, *
nor will he forsake his own.
15   For judgment will again be just, *
and all the true of heart will follow it.
16   Who rose up for me against the wicked? *
who took my part against the evildoers?
17   If the LORD had not come to my help, *
I should soon have dwelt in the land of silence.
18   As often as I said, "My foot has slipped, " *
your love, O LORD, upheld me.
19   When many cares fill my mind, *
your consolations cheer my soul.
20   Can a corrupt tribunal have any part with you, *
one which frames evil into law?
21   They conspire against the life of the just *
and condemn the innocent to death.
22   But the LORD has become my stronghold, *
and my God the rock of my trust.
23   He will turn their wickedness back upon them and destroy them in their own malice; *
the LORD our God will destroy them.

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

You have made the LORD your refuge.

The Lessons [One Evening ReadingTwo Evening Readings]

A Reading from 1 Samuel 20:1-23

David fled from Naioth in Ramah. He came before Jonathan and said, "What have I done? What is my guilt? And what is my sin against your father that he is trying to take my life?" He said to him, "Far from it! You shall not die. My father does nothing either great or small without disclosing it to me; and why should my father hide this from me? Never!" But David also swore, "Your father knows well that you like me; and he thinks, 'Do not let Jonathan know this, or he will be grieved.' But truly, as the LORD lives and as you yourself live, there is but a step between me and death." Then Jonathan said to David, "Whatever you say, I will do for you." David said to Jonathan, "Tomorrow is the new moon, and I should not fail to sit with the king at the meal; but let me go, so that I may hide in the field until the third evening. If your father misses me at all, then say, 'David earnestly asked leave of me to run to Bethlehem his city; for there is a yearly sacrifice there for all the family.' If he says, 'Good!' it will be well with your servant; but if he is angry, then know that evil has been determined by him. Therefore deal kindly with your servant, for you have brought your servant into a sacred covenant with you. But if there is guilt in me, kill me yourself; why should you bring me to your father?" Jonathan said, "Far be it from you! If I knew that it was decided by my father that evil should come upon you, would I not tell you?" Then David said to Jonathan, "Who will tell me if your father answers you harshly?" Jonathan replied to David, "Come, let us go out into the field." So they both went out into the field. Jonathan said to David, "By the LORD, the God of Israel! When I have sounded out my father, about this time tomorrow, or on the third day, if he is well disposed toward David, shall I not then send and disclose it to you? But if my father intends to do you harm, the LORD do so to Jonathan, and more also, if I do not disclose it to you, and send you away, so that you may go in safety. May the LORD be with you, as he has been with my father. If I am still alive, show me the faithful love of the LORD; but if I die, never cut off your faithful love from my house, even if the LORD were to cut off every one of the enemies of David from the face of the earth." Thus Jonathan made a covenant with the house of David, saying, "May the LORD seek out the enemies of David." Jonathan made David swear again by his love for him; for he loved him as he loved his own life. Jonathan said to him, "Tomorrow is the new moon; you will be missed, because your place will be empty. On the day after tomorrow, you shall go a long way down; go to the place where you hid yourself earlier, and remain beside the stone there. I will shoot three arrows to the side of it, as though I shot at a mark. Then I will send the boy, saying, 'Go, find the arrows.' If I say to the boy, 'Look, the arrows are on this side of you, collect them,' then you are to come, for, as the LORD lives, it is safe for you and there is no danger. But if I say to the young man, 'Look, the arrows are beyond you,' then go; for the LORD has sent you away. As for the matter about which you and I have spoken, the LORD is witness between you and me forever."

Then David fled from Nai'oth in Ramah, and came and said before Jonathan, "What have I done? What is my guilt? And what is my sin before your father, that he seeks my life?" And he said to him, "Far from it! You shall not die. Behold, my father does nothing either great or small without disclosing it to me; and why should my father hide this from me? It is not so." But David replied, "Your father knows well that I have found favor in your eyes; and he thinks, `Let not Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved.' But truly, as the LORD lives and as your soul lives, there is but a step between me and death." Then said Jonathan to David, "Whatever you say, I will do for you." David said to Jonathan, "Behold, tomorrow is the new moon, and I should not fail to sit at table with the king; but let me go, that I may hide myself in the field till the third day at evening. If your father misses me at all, then say, `David earnestly asked leave of me to run to Bethlehem his city; for there is a yearly sacrifice there for all the family.' If he says, `Good!' it will be well with your servant; but if he is angry, then know that evil is determined by him. Therefore deal kindly with your servant, for you have brought your servant into a sacred covenant with you. But if there is guilt in me, slay me yourself; for why should you bring me to your father?" And Jonathan said, "Far be it from you! If I knew that it was determined by my father that evil should come upon you, would I not tell you?" Then said David to Jonathan, "Who will tell me if your father answers you roughly?" And Jonathan said to David, "Come, let us go out into the field." So they both went out into the field. And Jonathan said to David, "The LORD, the God of Israel, be witness! When I have sounded my father, about this time tomorrow, or the third day, behold, if he is well disposed toward David, shall I not then send and disclose it to you? But should it please my father to do you harm, the LORD do so to Jonathan, and more also, if I do not disclose it to you, and send you away, that you may go in safety. May the LORD be with you, as he has been with my father. If I am still alive, show me the loyal love of the LORD, that I may not die; and do not cut off your loyalty from my house for ever. When the LORD cuts off every one of the enemies of David from the face of the earth, let not the name of Jonathan be cut off from the house of David. And may the LORD take vengeance on David's enemies." And Jonathan made David swear again by his love for him; for he loved him as he loved his own soul. Then Jonathan said to him, "Tomorrow is the new moon; and you will be missed, because your seat will be empty. And on the third day you will be greatly missed; then go to the place where you hid yourself when the matter was in hand, and remain beside yonder stone heap. And I will shoot three arrows to the side of it, as though I shot at a mark. And behold, I will send the lad, saying, `Go, find the arrows.' If I say to the lad, `Look, the arrows are on this side of you, take them,' then you are to come, for, as the LORD lives, it is safe for you and there is no danger. But if I say to the youth, `Look, the arrows are beyond you,' then go; for the LORD has sent you away. And as for the matter of which you and I have spoken, behold, the LORD is between you and me for ever."

And David fled from Naioth in Ramah, and came and said before Jonathan, What have I done? what is mine iniquity? and what is my sin before thy father, that he seeketh my life? And he said unto him, God forbid; thou shalt not die: behold, my father will do nothing either great or small, but that he will show it me: and why should my father hide this thing from me? it is not so. And David sware moreover, and said, Thy father certainly knoweth that I have found grace in thine eyes; and he saith, Let not Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved: but truly as the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, there is but a step between me and death. Then said Jonathan unto David, Whatsoever thy soul desireth, I will even do it for thee. And David said unto Jonathan, Behold, to morrow is the new moon, and I should not fail to sit with the king at meat: but let me go, that I may hide myself in the field unto the third day at even. If thy father at all miss me, then say, David earnestly asked leave of me that he might run to Bethlehem his city: for there is a yearly sacrifice there for all the family. If he say thus, It is well; thy servant shall have peace: but if he be very wroth, then be sure that evil is determined by him. Therefore thou shalt deal kindly with thy servant; for thou hast brought thy servant into a covenant of the LORD with thee: notwithstanding, if there be in me iniquity, slay me thyself; for why shouldest thou bring me to thy father? And Jonathan said, Far be it from thee: for if I knew certainly that evil were determined by my father to come upon thee, then would not I tell it thee? Then said David to Jonathan, Who shall tell me? or what if thy father answer thee roughly? And Jonathan said unto David, Come, and let us go out into the field. And they went out both of them into the field. And Jonathan said unto David, O LORD God of Israel, when I have sounded my father about to morrow any time, or the third day, and, behold, if there be good toward David, and I then send not unto thee, and show it thee; The LORD do so and much more to Jonathan: but if it please my father to do thee evil, then I will show it thee, and send thee away, that thou mayest go in peace: and the LORD be with thee, as he hath been with my father. And thou shalt not only while yet I live show me the kindness of the LORD, that I die not: But also thou shalt not cut off thy kindness from my house for ever: no, not when the LORD hath cut off the enemies of David every one from the face of the earth. So Jonathan made a covenant with the house of David, saying, Let the LORD even require it at the hand of David's enemies. And Jonathan caused David to swear again, because he loved him: for he loved him as he loved his own soul. Then Jonathan said to David, To morrow is the new moon: and thou shalt be missed, because thy seat will be empty. And when thou hast stayed three days, then thou shalt go down quickly, and come to the place where thou didst hide thyself when the business was in hand, and shalt remain by the stone Ezel. And I will shoot three arrows on the side thereof, as though I shot at a mark. And, behold, I will send a lad, saying, Go, find out the arrows. If I expressly say unto the lad, Behold, the arrows are on this side of thee, take them; then come thou: for there is peace to thee, and no hurt; as the LORD liveth. But if I say thus unto the young man, Behold, the arrows are beyond thee; go thy way: for the LORD hath sent thee away. And as touching the matter which thou and I have spoken of, behold, the LORD be between thee and me for ever.

My soul doth magnify the Lord, *
and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.
For he hath regarded *
the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold from henceforth *
all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me, *
and holy is his Name.
And his mercy is on them that fear him *
throughout all generations.
He hath showed strength with his arm; *
he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat, *
and hath exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things, *
and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel, *
as he promised to our forefathers,
Abraham and his seed for ever.

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

A Reading from Matthew 25:31-46

"When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left. Then the king will say to those at his right hand, 'Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.' Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?' And the king will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.' Then he will say to those at his left hand, 'You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.' Then they also will answer, 'Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?' Then he will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.' And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left. Then the King will say to those at his right hand, `Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?' And the King will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.' Then he will say to those at his left hand, `Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.' Then they also will answer, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to thee?' Then he will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.' And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.

When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold from henceforth *
all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me, *
and holy is his Name.
And his mercy is on them that fear him *
throughout all generations.
He hath showed strength with his arm; *
he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat, *
and hath exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things, *
and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel, *
as he promised to our forefathers,
Abraham and his seed for ever.

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.

The Song of Mary Magnificat
Luke 1:46-55

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior; *
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed: *
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him *
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm, *
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones, *
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things, *
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel, *
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
The promise he made to our fathers, *
to Abraham and his children for ever.

thou hast set me at liberty when I was in trouble; have mercy upon me, and hearken unto my prayer.
   O ye sons of men, how long will ye blaspheme mine honour, *
and have such pleasure in vanity, and seek after falsehood?
   Know this also, that the LORD hath chosen to himself the man that is godly; *
when I call upon the LORD he will hear me.
   Stand in awe, and sin not; *
commune with your own heart, and in your chamber, and be still.
   Offer the sacrifice of righteousness, *
and put your trust in the LORD.
   There be many that say, *
Who will show us any good?
   LORD, lift thou up*
the light of thy countenance upon us.
   Thou hast put gladness in my heart; *
yea, more than when their corn and wine and oil increase.
   I will lay me down in peace, and take my rest; *
for it is thou, LORD, only, that makest me dwell in safety.

  Know that the LORD does wonders for the faithful; *
when I call upon the LORD, he will hear me.

speak to your heart in silence upon your bed.
  Offer the appointed sacrifices *
and put your trust in the LORD.
  Many are saying, “, that we might see better times!” *
Lift up the light of your countenance upon us, O LORD.

his faithfulness and truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
   Thou shalt not be afraid for any terror by night, *
nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
   For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, *
nor for the sickness that destroyeth in the noon-day.
   A thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy right hand; *
but it shall not come nigh thee.
   Yea, with thine eyes shalt thou behold, *
and see the reward of the ungodly.

neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

yea, I am with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and bring him to honour.

nor of the arrow that flies by day;
  Of the plague that stalks in the darkness, *
nor of the sickness that lays waste at mid-day.
  A thousand shall fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, *
but it shall not come near you.
  Your eyes have only to behold *
to see the reward of the wicked.
  Because you have made the LORD your refuge, *
and the Most High your habitation,

neither shall any plague come near your dwelling.
11   For he shall give his angels charge over you, *
to keep you in all your ways.

lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13   You shall tread upon the lion and the adder; *
you shall trample the young lion and the serpent under your feet.
14   Because he is bound to me in love, therefore will I deliver him; *
I will protect him, because he knows my Name.
15   He shall call upon me, and I will answer him; *
I am with him in trouble; I will rescue him and bring him to honor.
16   With long life will I satisfy him, *

The Song of Simeon Nunc Dimittis
Luke 2:29-32

Lord, you now have set your servant free *
to go in peace as you have promised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior, *
whom you have prepared for all the world to see:
A Light to enlighten the nations, *
and the glory of your people Israel.

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

Antiphon: Guide us waking, O Lord, and guard us sleeping; that awake
we may watch with Christ, and asleep we may rest in peace. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Salve Regina

Hail holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness,
and our hope.To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this
valley of tears.Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of
mercy toward us. And after this our exile show unto us
the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement
O loving
O sweet 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, 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.
