The sea is his, and he made it; * and his hands prepared the dry land.
O come, let us worship and fall down, * and kneel before the LORD our Maker.
For he is the Lord our God; * and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness; * let the whole earth stand in awe of him.
For he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth; * and with righteousness to judge the world, and the peoples with his truth.

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 Psalter

The Eighty-Ninth Psalm

Misericordias Domini.


MY song shall be alway of the loving-kindness of the LORD; * with my mouth will I ever be showing thy truth from one generation to another.
 
For I have said, Mercy shall be set up for ever; * thy truth shalt thou stablish in the heavens.
 
I have made a covenant with my chosen; * I have sworn unto David my servant:
 
Thy seed will I stablish for ever, * and set up thy throne from one generation to another.
 
O LORD, the very heavens shall praise thy wondrous works; * and thy truth in the congregation of the saints.
 
For who is he among the clouds, * that shall be compared unto the LORD?
 
And what is he among the gods, * that shall be like unto the LORD?
 
God is very greatly to be feared in the council of the saints, * and to be had in reverence of all them that are round about him.
 
O Lord God of hosts, who is like unto thee? * thy truth, most mighty LORD, is on every side.
 
Thou rulest the raging of the sea; * thou stillest the waves thereof when they arise.
 
Thou hast subdued Egypt, and destroyed it; * thou hast scattered thine enemies abroad with thy mighty arm.
 
The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine; * thou hast laid the foundation of the round world, and all that therein is.
 
Thou hast made the north and the south; * Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy Name.
 
Thou hast a mighty arm; * strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.
 
Righteousness and equity are the habitation of thy seat; * mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
 
Blessed is the people, O LORD, that can rejoice in thee; * they shall walk in the light of thy countenance.
 
Their delight shall be daily in thy Name; * and in thy righteousness shall they make their boast.
 
For thou art the glory of their strength, * and in thy loving-kindness thou shalt lift up our horns.
 
For the LORD is our defence; * the Holy One of Israel is our King.
 

 
vs 20 Thou spakest sometime in visions unto thy saints, and saidst, * I have laid help upon one that is mighty, I have exalted one chosen out of the people.
 
I have found David my servant; * with my holy oil have I anointed him.
 
My hand shall hold him fast, * and my arm shall strengthen him.
 
The enemy shall not be able to do him violence; * the son of wickedness shall not hurt him.

And I will make him my firstborn, * higher than the kings of the earth.

His seed also will I make to endure for ever, * and his throne as the days of heaven.
 

 
vs 31 But if his children forsake my law, * and walk not in my judgments;
 
If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments; * I will visit their offences with the rod, and their sin with scourges.
 
Nevertheless, my loving-kindness will I not utterly take from him, * nor suffer my truth to fail.
 
My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips: * I have sworn once by my holiness, that I will not fail David.
 
His seed shall endure for ever, * and his throne is like as the sun before me.
 
He shall stand fast for evermore as the moon, * and as the faithful witness in heaven.
 
But thou hast abhorred and forsaken thine anointed, * and art displeased at him.
 
Thou hast broken the covenant of thy servant, * and cast his crown to the ground.
 
Thou hast overthrown all his hedges, * and broken down his strongholds.
 
All they that go by spoil him, * and he is become a reproach to his neighbours.
 
Thou hast set up the right hand of his enemies, * and made all his adversaries to rejoice.
 
Thou hast taken away the edge of his sword, * and givest him not victory in the battle.
 
Thou hast put out his glory, * and cast his throne down to the ground.
 
The days of his youth hast thou shortened, * and covered him with dishonour.
 
LORD, how long wilt thou hide thyself? for ever? * and shall thy wrath burn like fire?
 
O remember how short my time is; * wherefore hast thou made all men for nought?
 
What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? * and shall he deliver his soul from the power of the grave?
 
Lord, where are thy old loving-kindnesses, * which thou swarest unto David in thy truth?
 
Remember, Lord, the rebuke that thy servants have, * and how I do bear in my bosom the rebukes of many people;
 
Wherewith thine enemies have blasphemed thee, * and slandered the footsteps of thine anointed.
 
Praised be the LORD for evermore. * Amen, and Amen.

 

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 First Lesson


Judges 5:19


The kings came and fought, then fought the kings of Canaan in Taanach by the waters of Megiddo; they took no gain of money. They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera. The river of Kishon swept them away, that ancient river, the river Kishon. O my soul, thou hast trodden down strength. Then were the horsehoofs broken by the means of the prancings, the prancings of their mighty ones. Curse ye Meroz, said the angel of the Lord, curse ye bitterly the inhabitants thereof; because they came not to the help of the Lord, to the help of the Lord against the mighty. Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent. He asked water, and she gave him milk; she brought forth butter in a lordly dish. She put her hand to the nail, and her right hand to the workmen's hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she smote off his head, when she had pierced and stricken through his temples. At her feet he bowed, he fell, he lay down: at her feet he bowed, he fell: where he bowed, there he fell down dead. The mother of Sisera looked out at a window, and cried through the lattice, Why is his chariot so long in coming? why tarry the wheels of his chariots? Her wise ladies answered her, yea, she returned answer to herself, Have they not sped? have they not divided the prey; to every man a damsel or two; to Sisera a prey of divers colours, a prey of divers colours of needlework, of divers colours of needlework on both sides, meet for the necks of them that take the spoil? So let all thine enemies perish, O Lord: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years.


 
Benedictus es, Domine.

BLESSED art thou, O Lord God of our fathers:* praised and exalted above all for ever.
Blessed art thou for the Name of thy Majesty:* praised and exalted above all for ever.
Blessed art thou in the temple of thy holiness:* praised and exalted above all for ever.
Blessed art thou that beholdest the depths, and dwellest between the Cherubim: * praised and exalted above all forever.
Blessed art thou on the glorious throne of thy kingdom: * praised and exalted above all for ever.
Blessed art thou in the firmament of heaven: * praised and exalted above all for ever.

  Te deum laudamus       Benedicite, omnia

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 Second Lesson

St. Luke 7:1-10

Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum. And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant. And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this: For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue. Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof: Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.



Benedictus. St. Luke i. 68.

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 day-spring 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.

  Jubilate Deo

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 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 be with you.
Answer. And with thy spirit.
Minister. Let us pray.

The Lord's Prayer.

OUR Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Minister. O Lord, show thy mercy upon us.
Answer. And grant us thy salvation.
Minister. O God, make clean our hearts within us.
Answer. And take not thy Holy Spirit from us.

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.

A Prayer for the Clergy and People.

Almighty and everlasting God, from whom cometh every good and perfect gift; Send down upon our Bishops, and other Clergy, and upon the Congregations committed to their charge, the healthful Spirit of thy grace; and, that they may truly please thee, pour upon them the continual dew of thy blessing. Grant this, O Lord, for the honour of our Advocate and Mediator, Jesus Christ. Amen.


A Prayer for All Conditions of Men.

O God, the Creator and Preserver of all mankind, we humbly beseech thee for all sorts and conditions of men; that thou wouldest be pleased to make thy ways known unto them, thy saving health unto all nations. More especially we pray for thy holy Church universal; that it may be so guided and governed by thy good Spirit, that all who profess and call themselves Christians may be led into the way of truth, and hold the faith in unity of spirit, in the bond of peace, and in righteousness of life. Finally, we commend to thy fatherly goodness all those who are any ways afflicted, or distressed, in mind, body, or estate; [* especially those for whom our prayers are desired;] that it may please thee to comfort and relieve them, according to their several necessities; giving them patience under their sufferings, and a happy issue out of all their afflictions. And this we beg for Jesus Christ's sake. Amen.
