Hymn: Rector potens, verax deus

O God of truth, O LORD of might,
who ord'rest time and change aright,
and send'st the early morning ray,
and light'st the glow of perfect day:

Extinguish thou each sinful fire,
and banish every ill desire;
and while thou keep'st the body whole,
shed forth thy peace upon the soul.

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.

      and a light unto my paths.
106    I have sworn, and am stedfastly purposed, *
      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.
112    I have applied my heart to fulfil thy statutes alway, *
      even unto the end.

       and a light upon my path.

       preserve my life, O LORD, according to your word.
108   Accept, O LORD, the willing tribute of my lips, *
       and teach me your judgments.
109   My life is always in my hand, *
       yet I do not forget your law.
110   The wicked have set a trap for me, *
       but I have not strayed from your commandments.
111   Your decrees are my inheritance for ever; *
       truly, they are the joy of my heart.
112   I have applied my heart to fulfill your statutes *
       for ever and to the end.

Psalm 121 Levavi oculos

  I WILL lift up mine eyes unto the hills; *
      from whence cometh my help?
   My help cometh even from the LORD, *
      who hath made heaven and earth.
   He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; *
      and he that keepeth thee will not sleep.
   Behold, he that keepeth Israel *
      shall neither slumber nor sleep.
   The LORD himself is thy keeper; *
      the LORD is thy defence upon thy right hand;
   So that the sun shall not burn thee by day, *
      neither the moon by night.

      yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.
   The LORD shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in, *
      from this time forth for evermore.

       and he who watches over you will not fall asleep.
  Behold, he who keeps watch over Israel *
       shall neither slumber nor sleep;

       the LORD is your shade at your right hand,
  So that the sun shall not strike you by day, *
       nor the moon by night.
  The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; *
       it is he who shall keep you safe.
  The LORD shall watch over your going out and your coming in, *
       from this time forth for evermore.

Psalm 126 In convertendo

  WHEN the LORD turned again the captivity of Sion, *
      then were we like unto them that dream.
   Then was our mouth filled with laughter, *
      and our tongue with joy.
   Then said they among the heathen, *
      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.

  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, *
       "The 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.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy SpiritGhost: *
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for everand ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

And all things [are] of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 2 Corinthians 5:17-18
