The Psalm or Psalms Appointed

Deliver my soul, O LORD, † from lying lips and from a deceitful tongue.

PSALM 120. Ad Dominum

  WHEN I was in trouble, I called upon the LORD:
and he heard me.
2   Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips:
and from a deceitful tongue.
3   What reward shall be given or done unto thee, thou false tongue:
even mighty and sharp arrows, with hot burning coals.
4   Woe is me, that I am constrained to dwell with Mesech:
and to have my habitation among the tents of Kedar!
5   My soul hath long dwelt among them:
that are enemies unto peace.
6   I labour for peace; but when I speak unto them thereof:
they make them ready to battle.

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.

Deliver my soul, O LORD, † from lying lips and from a deceitful tongue.

I will lift up mine eyes † unto the hills from whence cometh my help.

PSALM 121. Levavi oculos

  I WILL lift up mine eyes unto the hills:
from whence cometh my help.
2   My help cometh even from the LORD:
who hath made heaven and earth.
3   He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
and he that keepeth thee will not sleep.
4   Behold, he that keepeth Israel:
shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5   The LORD himself is thy keeper:
the LORD is thy defence upon thy right hand;
6   So that the sun shall not burn thee by day:
neither the moon by night.
7   The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil:
yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.
8   The LORD shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in:
from this time forth for evermore.

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.

I will lift up mine eyes † unto the hills from whence cometh my help.

They shall prosper † that love thee.

PSALM 122. Lætatus sum
I WAS glad when they said unto me:
We will go into the house of the LORD.
2   Our feet shall stand in thy gates:
O Jerusalem.
3   Jerusalem is built as a city:
that is at unity in itself.
4   For thither the tribes go up, even the tribes of the LORD:
to testify unto Israel, to give thanks unto the Name of the LORD.
5   For there is the seat of judgment:
even the seat of the house of David.
6   O pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
they shall prosper that love thee.
7   Peace be within thy walls:
and plenteousness within thy palaces.
8   For my brethren and companions' sakes:
I will wish thee prosperity.

I will seek to do thee good.

as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, *
world without end. Amen.

They shall prosper † that love thee.

Have mercy upon us, † O LORD, have mercy upon us.

PSALM 123. Ad te levavi oculos meos

  UNTO thee lift I up mine eyes:
O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
2   Behold, even as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress:
even so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until he have mercy upon us.
3   Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us:
for we are utterly despised.
4   Our soul is filled with the scornful reproof of the wealthy:
and with the despitefulness of the proud.

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.

Have mercy upon us, † O LORD, have mercy upon us.

Our help standeth † in the Name of the LORD who hath made heaven and earth.

PSALM 124. Nisi quia Dominus

  IF the LORD himself had not been on our side, now may Israel say:
if the LORD himself had not been on our side, when men rose up against us;
2   They had swallowed us up quick:
when they were so wrathfully displeased at us.
3   Yea, the waters had drowned us:
and the stream had gone over our soul.
4   The deep waters of the proud:
had gone even over our soul.
5   But praised be the LORD:
who hath not given us over for a prey unto their teeth.
6   Our soul is escaped even as a bird out of the snare of the fowler:
the snare is broken, and we are delivered.
7   Our help standeth in the Name of the LORD:
who hath made heaven and 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.

Our help standeth † in the Name of the LORD who hath made heaven and earth.

Do well, O LORD, † unto those that are good and true of heart.

PSALM 125. Qui confidunt

  THEY that put their trust in the LORD shall be even as the mount Sion:
which may not be removed, but standeth fast for ever.
2   The hills stand about Jerusalem:
even so standeth the LORD round about his people, from this time forth for evermore.
3   For the rod of the ungodly cometh not into the lot of the righteous:
lest the righteous put their hand unto wickedness.
4   Do well, O LORD:
unto those that are good and true of heart.
5   As for such as turn back unto their own wickedness:
the LORD shall lead them forth with the evil doers; but peace shall be upon Israel.

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.

Do well, O LORD, † unto those that are good and true of heart.

O LORD my God † in thee have I put my trust; save me from all them that persecute me and deliver me;

PSALM 7. Domine, Deus meus

  O LORD my God, in thee have I put my trust:
save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me;
2   Lest he devour my soul like a lion, and tear it in pieces:
while there is none to help.
3   O LORD my God, if I have done any such thing:
or if there be any wickedness in my hands;
4   If I have rewarded evil unto him that dealt friendly with me:
yea, I have delivered him that without any cause is mine enemy;
5   Then let mine enemy persecute my soul, and take me:
yea, let him tread my life down upon the I earth, and lay mine honour in the dust.
6   Stand up, O LORD, in thy wrath, and lift up thyself, because of the indignation of mine enemies:
arise up for me in the judgment that thou hast commanded.
7   And so shall the congregation of the people come about thee:
for their sakes therefore lift up thyself again.
8   The LORD shall judge the people; give sentence with me, O LORD:
according to my righteousness, and according to the innocency that is in me.
9   O let the wickedness of the ungodly come to an end:
but guide thou the just.
10   For the righteous God:
trieth the very hearts and reins.
11   My help cometh of God:
who preserveth them that are true of heart.
12   God is a righteous Judge, strong, and patient:
and God is provoked every day.
13   If a man will not turn, he will whet his sword:
he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
14   He hath prepared for him the instruments of death:
he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
15   Behold, he travaileth with mischief:
he hath conceived sorrow, and brought forth ungodliness.
16   He hath graven and digged up a pit:
and is fallen himself into the destruction that he made for other.
17   For his travail shall come upon his own head:
and his wickedness shall fall on his own pate.
18   I will give thanks unto the LORD, according to his righteousness:
and I will praise the Name of the LORD Most High.

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

O LORD my God † in thee have I put my trust; save me from all them that persecute me and deliver me;

The Lessons

Here beginneth the 1st verse of the 29th Chapter of 1 Samuel

Now the Philistines gathered together all their armies to Aphek: and the Israelites pitched by a fountain which is in Jezreel. And the lords of the Philistines passed on by hundreds, and by thousands: but David and his men passed on in the rearward with Achish. Then said the princes of the Philistines, What do these Hebrews here? And Achish said unto the princes of the Philistines, Is not this David, the servant of Saul the king of Israel, which hath been with me these days, or these years, and I have found no fault in him since he fell unto me unto this day? And the princes of the Philistines were wroth with him; and the princes of the Philistines said unto him, Make this fellow return, that he may go again to his place which thou hast appointed him, and let him not go down with us to battle, lest in the battle he be an adversary to us: for wherewith should he reconcile himself unto his master? should it not be with the heads of these men? Is not this David, of whom they sang one to another in dances, saying, Saul slew his thousands, and David his ten thousands? Then Achish called David, and said unto him, Surely, as the LORD liveth, thou hast been upright, and thy going out and thy coming in with me in the host is good in my sight: for I have not found evil in thee since the day of thy coming unto me unto this day: nevertheless the lords favor thee not. Wherefore now return, and go in peace, that thou displease not the lords of the Philistines. And David said unto Achish, But what have I done? and what hast thou found in thy servant so long as I have been with thee unto this day, that I may not go fight against the enemies of my lord the king? And Achish answered and said to David, I know that thou art good in my sight, as an angel of God: notwithstanding the princes of the Philistines have said, He shall not go up with us to the battle. Wherefore now rise up early in the morning with thy master's servants that are come with thee: and as soon as ye be up early in the morning, and have light, depart. So David and his men rose up early to depart in the morning, to return into the land of the Philistines. And the Philistines went up to Jezreel.

Here beginneth the 1st verse of the 12th Chapter of 2 Samuel

And the LORD sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor. The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds: But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter. And there came a traveler unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man's lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him. And David's anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As the LORD liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die: And he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity. And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul; And I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things. Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon. Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife. And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die. Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die. And Nathan departed unto his house.

Here beginneth the 1st verse of the 10th Chapter of Luke

After these things the LORD appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way. And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell. He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him. And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

Here beginneth the 1st verse of the 1st Chapter of 2 Corinthians

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia: Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation. For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life: But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead: Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us; Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf. For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward. For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end; As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also are our's in the day of the Lord Jesus. And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that ye might have a second benefit; And to pass by you into Macedonia, and to come again out of Macedonia unto you, and of you to be brought on my way toward Judaea. When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay? But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea. For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. Moreover I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth. Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.

Second Canticle

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

Blessed be † the Lord God of Israel* for he hath visited and redeemed his people.

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.

Blessed be † the Lord God of Israel* for he hath visited and redeemed his people.

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.

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.
