The Psalm or Psalms Appointed

Ye men of Galilee, † why stand ye gazing up into heaven? * This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner. Alleluia.

PSALM 139. Domine, probasti

  O LORD, thou hast searched me out, and known me:
thou knowest my down-sitting, and mine up-rising; thou understandest my thoughts long before.
2   Thou art about my path, and about my bed:
and spiest out all my ways.
3   For lo, there is not a word in my tongue:
but thou, O LORD, knowest it altogether.
4   Thou hast fashioned me behind and before:
and laid thine hand upon me.
5   Such knowledge is too wonderful and excellent for me:
I cannot attain unto it.
6   Whither shall I go then from thy Spirit:
or whither shall I go then from thy presence?
7   If I climb up into heaven, thou art there:
if I go down to hell, thou art there also.
8   If I take the wings of the morning:
and remain in the uttermost parts of the sea;
9   Even there also shall thy hand lead me:
and thy right hand shall hold me.
10   If I say, Peradventure the darkness shall cover me:
then shall my night be turned to day.
11   Yea, the darkness is no darkness with thee, but the night is as clear as the day:
the darkness and light to thee are both alike.
12   For my reins are thine:
thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
13   I will give thanks unto thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvellous are thy works, and that my soul knoweth right well.
14   My bones are not hid from thee:
though I be made secretly, and fashioned beneath in the earth.
15   Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being imperfect:
and in thy book were all my members written;
16   Which day by day were fashioned:
when as yet there was none of them.
17   How dear are thy counsels unto me, O God:
O how great is the sum of them!
18   If I tell them, they are more in number than the sand:
when I wake up, I am present with thee.
19   Wilt thou not slay the wicked, O God:
Depart from me, ye blood-thirsty men.
20   For they speak unrighteously against thee:
and thine enemies take thy Name in vain.
21   Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee:
and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
22   Yea, I hate them right sore:
even as though they were mine enemies.
23   Try me, O God, and seek the ground of my heart:
prove me, and examine my thoughts.
24   Look well if there be any way of wickedness in me:
and lead me in the way everlasting.

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.

Ye men of Galilee, † why stand ye gazing up into heaven? * This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner. Alleluia.

PSALM 140. Eripe me, Domine

  DELIVER me, O LORD, from the evil man:
and preserve me from the wicked man;
2   Who imagine mischief in their hearts:
and stir up strife all the day long.
3   They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent:
adder's poison is under their lips.
4   Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the ungodly:
preserve me from the wicked men, who are purposed to overthrow my goings.
5   The proud have laid a snare for me, and spread a net abroad with cords:
yea, and set traps in my way.
6   I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God:
hear the voice of my prayers, O LORD.
7   O LORD God, thou strength of my health:
thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.
8   Let not the ungodly have his desire, O LORD:
let not his mischievous imagination prosper, lest they be too proud.
9   Let the mischief of their own lips fall upon the head of them:
that compass me about.
10   Let hot burning coals fall upon them:
let them be cast into the fire, and into the pit, that they never rise up again.
11   A man full of words shall not prosper upon the earth:
evil shall hunt the wicked person to overthrow him.
12   Sure I am that the LORD will avenge the poor:
and maintain the cause of the helpless.
13   The righteous also shall give thanks unto thy Name:
and the just shall continue in thy sight.

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.

Ye men of Galilee, † why stand ye gazing up into heaven? * This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner. Alleluia.

PSALM 15. Domine, quis habitabit?

  LORD, who shall dwell in thy tabernacle:
or who shall rest upon thy holy hill?
2   Even he that leadeth an uncorrupt life:
and doeth the thing which is right, and speaketh the truth from his heart.
3   He that hath used no deceit in his tongue, nor done evil to his neighbour:
and hath not slandered his neighbour.
4   He that setteth not by himself, but is lowly in his own eyes:
and maketh much of them that fear the LORD.
5   He that sweareth unto his neighbour, and disappointeth him not:
though it were to his own hindrance.
6   He that hath not given his money upon usury:
nor taken reward against the innocent.
7   Whoso doeth these things:
shall never fall.

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.

PSALM 108. Paratum cor meum

  O God, my heart is ready, my heart is ready:
I will sing, and give praise with the best member I that I have.
2   Awake, thou lute and harp:
I myself will awake right early.
3   I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the people:
I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
4   For thy mercy is greater than the heavens:
and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
5   Set up thyself, O God, above the heavens:
and thy glory above all the earth;

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.

And he lifted up his hands † and blessed them, * and was taken up into heaven, alleluia.

The Lessons

Here beginneth the 1st verse of the 22nd Chapter of Numbers

And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in the plains of Moab on this side Jordan by Jericho. And Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to the Amorites. And Moab was sore afraid of the people, because they were many: and Moab was distressed because of the children of Israel. And Moab said unto the elders of Midian, Now shall this company lick up all that are round about us, as the ox licketh up the grass of the field. And Balak the son of Zippor was king of the Moabites at that time. He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to Pethor, which is by the river of the land of the children of his people, to call him, saying, Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt: behold, they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me: Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for they are too mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, that we may smite them, and that I may drive them out of the land: for I wot that he whom thou blessest is blessed, and he whom thou cursest is cursed. And the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with the rewards of divination in their hand; and they came unto Balaam, and spake unto him the words of Balak. And he said unto them, Lodge here this night, and I will bring you word again, as the LORD shall speak unto me: and the princes of Moab abode with Balaam. And God came unto Balaam, and said, What men are these with thee? And Balaam said unto God, Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, hath sent unto me, saying, Behold, there is a people come out of Egypt, which covereth the face of the earth: come now, curse me them; peradventure I shall be able to overcome them, and drive them out. And God said unto Balaam, Thou shalt not go with them; thou shalt not curse the people: for they are blessed. And Balaam rose up in the morning, and said unto the princes of Balak, Get you into your land: for the LORD refuseth to give me leave to go with you. And the princes of Moab rose up, and they went unto Balak, and said, Balaam refuseth to come with us. And Balak sent yet again princes, more, and more honorable than they. And they came to Balaam, and said to him, Thus saith Balak the son of Zippor, Let nothing, I pray thee, hinder thee from coming unto me: For I will promote thee unto very great honor, and I will do whatsoever thou sayest unto me: come therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people. And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the word of the LORD my God, to do less or more. Now therefore, I pray you, tarry ye also here this night, that I may know what the LORD will say unto me more. And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the men come to call thee, rise up, and go with them; but yet the word which I shall say unto thee, that shalt thou do. And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and went with the princes of Moab. And God's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him. And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way.

Here beginneth the 1st verse of the 4th Chapter of Micah

But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it. For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever. In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.

The Canticle of Isaiah the Prophet Vere tu es Deus absconditus
Isaiah 45:15-25

Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, * O God of Israel, the Saviour.
They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: * they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.
But Israel shall be saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation: * ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.
For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; * God himself that formed the earth and made it;
He hath established it, he created it not in vain, * he formed it to be inhabited:
I am the Lord; * and there is none else.
I have not spoken in secret, * in a dark place of the earth:
I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: * I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
Assemble yourselves and come; * draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations:
They have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, * and pray unto a god that cannot save.
Tell ye, and bring them near; † yea, let them take counsel together: * who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time?
Have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; * a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: * for I am God, and there is none else.
I have sworn by myself, * the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return,
That unto me every knee shall bow, * every tongue shall swear.
Surely, shall one say, in the Lord have I righteousness and strength: * even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.
In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be justified, * and shall glory.

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.

Here beginneth the 1st verse of the 6th Chapter of Hebrews

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit. For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

Here beginneth the 31st verse of the 8th Chapter of Romans

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Here endeth the Second Lesson.

Second Canticle

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

Through the tender mercy † of our God, * the Day-Spring from on high hath visited us.

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.

Through the tender mercy † of our God, * the Day-Spring from on high hath visited us.

The Apostles' Creed

I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord:
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
Born of the Virgin Mary:
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried:
He descended into hell;
The third day he rose again from the dead:
He ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty:
From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost:
The holy Catholic Church;
The Communion of Saints:
The Forgiveness of sins:
The Resurrection of the body:
And the Life everlasting. Amen.
