The Psalm or Psalms Appointed

Arise and help us † and deliver us for thy mercy's sake.

PSALM 44. Deus, auribus

  WE have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us:
what thou hast done in their time of old:
2   How thou hast driven out the heathen with thy hand, and planted them in:
how thou hast destroyed the nations, and cast them out.
3   For they gat not the land in possession through their own sword:
neither was it their own arm that helped them;
4   But thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance:
because thou hadst a favour unto them.
5   Thou art my King, O God:
send help unto Jacob.
6   Through thee will we overthrow our enemies:
and in thy Name will we tread them under that rise up against us.
7   For I will not trust in my bow:
it is not my sword that shall help me;
8   But it is thou that savest us from our enemies:
and puttest them to confusion that hate us.
9   We make our boast of God all day long:
and will praise thy Name for ever.
10   But now thou art far off, and puttest us to confusion:
and goest not forth with our armies.
11   Thou makest us to turn our backs upon our enemies:
so that they which hate us spoil our goods.
12   Thou lettest us be eaten up like sheep:
and hast scattered us among the heathen.
13   Thou sellest thy people for nought:
and takest no money for them.
14   Thou makest us to be rebuked of our neighbours:
to be laughed to scorn, and had in derision of them that are round about us.
15   Thou makest us to be a by-word among the heathen:
and that the people shake their heads at us.
16   My confusion is daily before me:
and the shame of my face hath covered me;
17   For the voice of the slanderer and blasphemer:
for the enemy and avenger.
18   And though all this be come upon us, yet do we not forget thee:
nor behave ourselves frowardly in thy covenant.
19   Our heart is not turned back:
neither our steps gone out of thy way;
20   No, not when thou hast smitten us into the place of dragons:
and covered us with the shadow of death.
21   If we have forgotten the Name of our God, and holden up our hands to any strange god:
, shall not God search it out? for he knoweth the very secrets of the heart.
22   For thy sake also are we killed all the day long:
and are counted as sheep appointed to be slain.
23   Up, Lord, why sleepest thou:
awake, and be not absent from us for ever.
24   Wherefore hidest thou thy face:
and forgettest our misery and trouble?
25   For our soul is brought low, even unto the dust:
our belly cleaveth unto the ground.
26   Arise, and help us:
and deliver us, for thy mercy's sake.

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.

Arise and help us † and deliver us for thy mercy's sake.

Thy seat O God † endureth for ever; the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

PSALM 45. Eructavit cor meum

  MY heart is inditing of a good matter:
I speak of the things which I have made unto the King.
2   My tongue is the pen:
of a ready writer.
3   Thou art fairer than the children of men:
full of grace are thy lips, because God hath blessed thee for ever.
4   Gird thee with thy sword upon thy thigh, O thou Most Mighty:
according to thy worship and renown.
5   Good luck have thou with thine honour:
ride on, because of the word of truth, of meekness, and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
6   Thy arrows are very sharp, and the people shall be subdued unto thee:
even in the midst among the King's enemies.
7   Thy seat, O God, endureth for ever:
the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.
8   Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity:
wherefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
9   All thy garments smell of myrrh, aloes, and cassia:
out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
10   Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women:
upon thy right hand did stand the queen in a vesture of gold, wrought about with divers colours.
11   Hearken, O daughter, and consider, incline thine ear:
forget also thine own people, and thy father's house.
12   So shall the King have pleasure in thy beauty:
for he is thy Lord God, and worship thou him.
13   And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift:
like as the rich also among the people shall make their supplication before thee.
14   The King's daughter is all glorious within:
her clothing is of wrought gold.
15   She shall be brought unto the King in raiment of needlework:
the virgins that be her fellows shall bear her company, and shall be brought unto thee.
16   With joy and gladness shall they be brought:
and shall enter into the King's palace.
17   Instead of thy fathers, thou shalt have children:
whom thou mayest make princes in all lands.
18   I will remember thy Name from one generation to another:
therefore shall the people give thanks unto thee, world without end.

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.

Thy seat O God † endureth for ever; the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

God is our hope † and strength, a very present help in trouble.

PSALM 46. Deus noster refugium

  GOD is our hope and strength:
a very present help in trouble.
2   Therefore will we not fear, though the earth be moved:
and though the hills be carried into the midst of the sea;
3   Though the waters thereof rage and swell:
and though the mountains shake at the tempest of the same.
4   The rivers of the flood thereof shall make glad the city of God:
the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most Highest.
5   God is in the midst of her, therefore shall she not be removed:
God shall help her, and that right early.
6   The heathen make much ado, and the kingdoms are moved:
but God hath showed his voice, and the earth shall melt away.
7   The LORD of hosts is with us:
the God of Jacob is our refuge.
8   O come hither, and behold the works of the LORD:
what destruction he hath brought upon the earth.
9   He maketh wars to cease in all the world:
he breaketh the bow, and knappeth the spear in sunder, and burneth the chariots in the fire.
10   Be still then, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the heathen, and I will be exalted in the earth.
11   The LORD of hosts is with us:
the God of Jacob is our refuge.

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.

God is our hope † and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Thy mercy, O LORD, † held me up.

PSALM 94. Deus ultionum

  O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth:
thou God, to whom vengeance belongeth, show I thyself.
2   Arise, thou Judge of the world:
and reward the proud after their deserving.
3   LORD, how long shall the ungodly:
how long shall the ungodly triumph?
4   How long shall all wicked doers speak so disdainfully:
and make such proud boasting?
5   They smite down thy people, O LORD:
and trouble thine heritage.
6   They murder the widow and the stranger:
and put the fatherless to death.
7   And yet they say, Tush, the LORD shall not see:
neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
8   Take heed, ye unwise among the people:
O ye fools, when will ye understand?
9   He that planted the ear, shall he not hear:
or he that made the eye, shall he not see?
10   Or he that nurtureth 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 stool 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.

Thy mercy, O LORD, † held me up.

The Lessons

Here beginneth the 12th verse of the 3rd Chapter of Judges

And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel, because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD. And he gathered unto him the children of Ammon and Amalek, and went and smote Israel, and possessed the city of palm trees. So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years. But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab. But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh. And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very fat man. And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present. But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him. And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlor, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee. And he arose out of his seat. And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly: And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out. Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of the parlor upon him, and locked them. When he was gone out, his servants came; and when they saw that, behold, the doors of the parlor were locked, they said, Surely he covereth his feet in his summer chamber. And they tarried till they were ashamed: and, behold, he opened not the doors of the parlor; therefore they took a key, and opened them: and, behold, their lord was fallen down dead on the earth. And Ehud escaped while they tarried, and passed beyond the quarries, and escaped unto Seirath. And it came to pass, when he was come, that he blew a trumpet in the mountain of Ephraim, and the children of Israel went down with him from the mount, and he before them. And he said unto them, Follow after me: for the LORD hath delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand. And they went down after him, and took the fords of Jordan toward Moab, and suffered not a man to pass over. And they slew of Moab at that time about ten thousand men, all lusty, and all men of valor; and there escaped not a man. So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land had rest fourscore years. And after him was Shamgar the son of Anath, which slew of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad: and he also delivered Israel.

Here beginneth the 1st verse of the 7th Chapter of Judges

Then Jerubbaal, who is Gideon, and all the people that were with him, rose up early, and pitched beside the well of Harod: so that the host of the Midianites were on the north side of them, by the hill of Moreh, in the valley. And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me. Now therefore go to, proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, Whosoever is fearful and afraid, let him return and depart early from mount Gilead. And there returned of the people twenty and two thousand; and there remained ten thousand. And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people are yet too many; bring them down unto the water, and I will try them for thee there: and it shall be, that of whom I say unto thee, This shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee; and of whomsoever I say unto thee, This shall not go with thee, the same shall not go. So he brought down the people unto the water: and the LORD said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue, as a dog lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself; likewise every one that boweth down upon his knees to drink. And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water. And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place. So the people took victuals in their hand, and their trumpets: and he sent all the rest of Israel every man unto his tent, and retained those three hundred men: and the host of Midian was beneath him in the valley.

The Song of Jeremiah Audite verbum
Jeremiah 31:10-14

Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, * and declare it in the isles afar off,
And say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, * and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.
For the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, * and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he.
Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, * and shall flow together to the goodness of the Lord,
For wheat, and for wine, and for oil, * and for the young of the flock and of the herd:
And their soul shall be as a watered garden; * and they shall not sorrow any more at all.
Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, * both young men and old together:
For I will turn their mourning into joy, * and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.
And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, * and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the Lord.

Here beginneth the 38th verse of the 12th Chapter of Matthew

Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Here beginneth the 18th verse of the 7th Chapter of Luke

And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things. And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight. Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me. And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet. This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John. But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him. And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like? They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept. For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil. The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! But wisdom is justified of all her children.

Second Canticle

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

Let us serve the Lord † in holiness, * and he will deliver us out of the hand of our enemies.

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.

Let us serve the Lord † in holiness, * and he will deliver us out of the hand of our enemies.

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.

℣. The Lord hath made his Saints wonderful
℟. And hath heard them when they called upon him.

DEFEND us, we beseech thee, O Lord, from all perils of mind and body: and at the intercession of the blessed and glorious Mary, the ever Virgin Mother of God, of blessed Joseph, of thy blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, [of the Patron of the parish,] and of all Saints, graciously bestow upon us both peace and safety: that all adversity and error being done away, thy Church may serve thee in untroubled freedom. Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A Collect for Peace.

O GOD, who art the author of peace and lover of concord, in knowledge of whom standeth our eternal life, whose service is perfect freedom; Defend us thy humble servants in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in thy defence, may not fear the power of any adversaries, through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A Collect for Grace.

O LORD, our heavenly Father, Almighty and everlasting God, who hast safely brought us to the beginning of this day; Defend us in the same with thy mighty power; and grant that this day we fall into no sin, neither run into any kind of danger; but that all our doings, being ordered by thy governance, may be righteous in thy sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

2 Cor. xiii. 14.

THE grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost, be with us all evermore. Amen.
