2. PRIME SERVICE

O God, make speed to save me.
        O Lord, make haste to help me.

    Glory be, &c.     Amen.         Hallelujah.

(aa) Hymn
[Jam lucis orto.]

The star of morn to night succeeds,
    We therefore meekly pray,
May God in all our words and deeds
    Keep us from harm this day.
May he in love restrain us still
From tones of strife and words of ill,
And wrap around and close our eyes
To earth's absorbing vanities.

May wrath and thoughts that gender shame
    Ne'er in our breasts abide,
And painful abstinences tame
    Of wanton flesh the pride:
So when the weary day is o'er
And night and stillness come once more,
Blameless and clean from spot of earth
We may repeat, with reverent mirth,

Praise to the Father, as is meet,
    Praise to the only Son,
Praise to the Holy Paraclete,
    While endless ages run. Amen.

(bb) Antiphon     Praise ye the Lord.
Psalm 53. (1)     Save me, O God, for thy Name's sake: and avenge me in
thy strength.
    Hear my prayer, O God: and hearken unto the words of
my mouth.
    For strangers are risen up against me: and tyrants, which
have not God before their eyes, seek after my soul.
    Behold, God is my helper: the Lord is with them that
uphold my soul.
    He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: destroy thou
them in thy truth.
    An offering of a free heart will I give thee, and praise thy
Name, O Lord: because it is so comfortable. {56}
    For he hath delivered me out of all my trouble: and mine
eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies. Glory be, &c.
Psalm 118. (2)     O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious: because
his mercy endureth for ever.
    Let Israel now confess, that he is gracious: and that his
mercy endureth for ever.
    Let the house of Aaron now confess: that his mercy en-
dureth for ever.
    Yea, let them now that fear the Lord confess: that his
mercy endureth for ever.
    I called upon the Lord in trouble: and the Lord heard
me at large.
    The Lord is on my side: I will not fear what man doeth
unto me.
    The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: there-
fore shall I see my desire upon mine enemies.
    It is better to trust in the Lord: than to put any confi-
dence in man.
    It is better to trust in the Lord: than to put any confi-
dence in princes.
    All nations compassed me round about: but in the Name
of the Lord will I destroy them.
    They kept me in on every side, they kept me in, I say,
on every side: but in the Name of the Lord will I destroy
them.
    They came about me like bees, and are extinct even as
the fire among the thorns: for in the name of the Lord I
will destroy them.
    Thou hast thrust sore at me, that I might fall: but the
Lord was my help.
    The Lord is my strength, and my song: and is become
my salvation.
    The voice of joy and health is in the dwellings of the
righteous: the right hand of the Lord bringeth mighty
things to pass.
    The right hand of the Lord hath the pre-eminence: the
right hand of the Lord bringeth mighty things to pass.
    I shall not die, but live: and declare the words of the
Lord.
    The Lord hath chastened and corrected me: but he hath
not given me over unto death.
    Open me the gates of righteousness: that I may go into
them, and give thanks unto the Lord.
    This is the gate of the Lord: the righteous shall enter
into it. {57}
    I will thank thee, for thou hast heard me: and art become
my salvation.
    The same stone which the builders refused: is become the
head-stone in the corner.
    This is the Lord's doing: and it is marvellous in our eyes.
    This is the day which the Lord hath made: we will re-
joice and be glad in it.
    Help me now, O Lord: O Lord, send us now prosperity.
    Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord: we
have wished you good luck, ye that are of the house of the
Lord.
    God is the Lord who hath showed us light: bind the sa-
crifice with cords; yea, even unto the horns of the altar.
    Thou art my God, and I will thank thee: thou art my
God, and I will praise thee.
    O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious: and his
mercy endureth for ever. Glory be, &c.
Psalm 119 (3)
1-16.
    Blessed are those that are undefiled in the way: and walk
in the law of the Lord.
    Blessed are they that keep his testimonies: and seek him
with their whole heart.
    For they who do no wickedness: walk in his ways.
    Thou hast charged: that we shall diligently keep thy com-
mandments.
    O that my ways were made so direct: that I might keep
thy statutes!
    So shall I not be confounded: while I have respect unto
all thy commandments.
    I will thank thee with an unfeigned heart: when I shall
have learned the judgments of thy righteousness.
    I will keep thy ceremonies: O forsake me not utterly.
    Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way: even by
ruling himself after thy word.
    With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not go
wrong out of thy commandments.
    Thy words have I hid within my heart: that I should not
sin against thee.
    Blessed art thou, O Lord: O teach me thy statutes.
    With my lips have I been telling: of all the judgments of
thy mouth.
    I have had as great delight in the way of thy testimonies:
as in all manner of riches.
    I will talk of thy commandments: and have respect unto
thy ways.
    My delight shall be in thy statutes: and I will not forget
thy word. Glory be, &c. {58}
Psalm 119. (4)
17-32.
    O do well unto thy servant: that I may live and keep thy
word.
    Open thou mine eyes: that I may see the wondrous things
of thy law.
    I am a stranger upon earth: O hide not thy command-
ments from me.
    My soul breaketh out for the very fervent desire: that it
hath alway unto thy judgment.
    Thou hast rebuked the proud: and cursed are they that
do err from thy commandments.
    O turn from me shame and rebuke: for I have kept thy
testimonies.
    Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant
is occupied in thy statutes.
    For thy testimonies are my delight: and my counsellors.
    My soul cleaveth to the dust: O quicken thou me, accord-
ing to thy word.
    I have acknowledged my ways, and thou heardest me: O
teach me thy statutes.
    Make me to understand the way of thy commandments:
and so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
    My soul melteth away for very heaviness: comfort thou
me according unto thy word.
    Take from me the way of lying: and cause thou me to
make much of thy law.
    I have chosen the way of truth: and thy judgments have I
laid before me.
    I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O Lord, confound me
not.
    I will run the way of thy commandments: when thou hast
set my heart at liberty. Glory be, &c.
The Creed of
St. Athanasius
    Whosoever will be saved: before all things it is necessary
that he hold the Catholic Faith.
    Which Faith except every one do keep whole and unde-
filed: without doubt he shall perish everlastingly.
    And the Catholic Faith is this: That we worship one God
in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity.
    Neither confounding the Persons: nor dividing the sub-
stance.
    For there is one Person of the Father, another of the Son:
and another of the Holy Ghost.
    But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the
Holy Ghost, is all one: the Glory equal, the Majesty co-
eternal.
    Such as the Father is, such is the Son: and such as the Holy
Ghost. {59}
    The Father uncreate, the Son uncreate: and the Holy
Ghost uncreate.
    The Father incomprehensible, the Son incomprehensible:
and the Holy Ghost incomprehensible.
    The Father eternal, the Son eternal: and the Holy Ghost
eternal.
    And yet they are not three eternals: but one eternal.
    And also there are not three incomprehensibles, nor three
uncreated: but one uncreated, and one incomprehensible.
    So likewise the Father is Almighty, the Son Almighty:
and the Holy Ghost Almighty.
    And yet they are not three Almighties: but one Almighty.
    So the Father is God, the Son is God: and the Holy
Ghost is God.
    And yet they are not three Gods: but one God.
    So likewise the Father is Lord, the Son Lord: and the
Holy Ghost Lord.
    And yet not three Lords: but one Lord.
    For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity: to
acknowledge every person by himself to be God and Lord;
    So we are forbidden by the Catholic Religion: to say,
There be three Gods, or three Lords.
    The Father is made of none: neither created, nor be-
gotten.
    The Son is of the Father alone: not made, nor created, but
begotten.
    The Holy Ghost is of the Father and of the Son: neither
made, nor created, nor begotten, but proceeding.
    So there is one Father, not three Fathers; one Son, not
three Sons; one Holy Ghost, not three Holy Ghosts.
    And in this Trinity none is afore, or after other: none is
greater, or less than another.
    But the whole three Persons are co-eternal together: and
co-equal.
    So that in all things, as is aforesaid: the Unity in Trinity,
and the Trinity in Unity, is to be worshipped.
    He therefore that will be saved: must thus think of the
Trinity.
    Furthermore, it is necessary to everlasting salvation: that
he also believe rightly the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus
Christ.
    For the right Faith is, that we believe and confess: that our
Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is God and Man;
    God, of the Substance of the Father, begotten before the
worlds: and Man, of the Substance of his Mother, born in the
world. {60}
    Perfect God, and perfect Man: of a reasonable soul, and
human flesh subsisting:
    Equal to the Father, as touching his Godhead: and infe-
rior to the Father, as touching his Manhood.
    Who although he be God and man: yet he is not two, but
one Christ.
    One; not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh: but by
taking of the Manhood into God;
    One altogether; not by confusion of substance: but by
unity of Person.
    For as the reasonable soul and flesh is one man: so God
and Man is one Christ.
    Who suffered for our salvation: descended into hell, rose
again the third day from the dead.
    He ascended into heaven; he sitteth on the right hand of
the Father, God Almighty: from whence he shall come to
judge the quick and the dead.
    At whose coming all men shall rise again with their
bodies: and shall give account of their own works.
    And they that have done good shall go into life everlast-
ing: and they that have done evil, into everlasting fire.
    This is the Catholic Faith: which except a man believe
faithfully, he cannot be saved. Glory be, &c.

Cast me not away from Thy presence.

O give me the comfort of Thy help again.
    And stablish me with Thy free Spirit.

Come, Holy Ghost, who ever One
Art with the Father and the Son;
Come, Holy Ghost, our souls possess,
With Thy full flood of Holiness.

Let mouth, and heart, and flesh combine
To herald forth our Creed divine,
And love so wrap our mortal frame,
Others may catch the living flame.

This grace on Thy redeem'd confer,

And Holy Ghost, the Comforter,
    Eternal Three in One. Amen.


(kk) Antiphon
Psalm 119 (1)
33-48.

    Praise ye the Lord.
    Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes: and I shall
keep it unto the end.
    Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law: yea,
I shall keep it with my whole heart.
    Make me to go in the path of thy commandments: for
therein is my desire.
    Incline my heart unto thy testimonies: and not to
covetousness.
    O turn away mine eyes lest they behold vanity: and
quicken thou me in thy way.
    O stablish thy word in thy servant: that I may fear thee.
    Take away the rebuke that I am afraid of: for thy judg-
ments are good.
    Behold, my delight is in thy commandments: O quicken
me in thy righteousness.
    Let thy loving mercy come also unto me, O Lord: even
thy salvation, according unto thy word.
    So shall I make answer unto my blasphemers: for my
trust is in thy word. {65}
    O take not the word of thy truth utterly out of my month:
for my hope is in thy judgments.
    So shall I alway keep thy law: yea, for ever and ever.
    And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy commandments.
    I will speak of thy testimonies also, even before kings:
and will not be ashamed.
    And my delight shall be in thy commandments: which I
have loved.
    My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments,
which I have loved: and my study shall be in thy statutes.
    Glory, &c.
Psalm 119. (2)
49-64.
    O think upon thy servant, as concerning thy word: where-
in thou hast caused me to put my trust.
    The same is my comfort in my trouble: for thy word hath
quickened me.
    The proud have had me exceedingly in derision: yet have
I not shrinked from thy law.
    For I remembered thine everlasting judgments, O Lord:
and received comfort.
    I am horribly afraid: for the ungodly that forsake thy
law.
    Thy statutes have been my songs: in the house of my
pilgrimage.
    I have thought upon thy Name, O Lord, in the night-
season: and have kept thy law.
    This I had: because I kept thy commandments.
    Thou art my portion, O Lord: I have promised to keep
thy law.
    I made my humble petition in thy presence with my whole
heart: O be merciful unto me, according to thy word.
    I called mine own ways to remembrance: and turned my
feet unto thy testimonies.
    I made haste, and prolonged not the time: to keep thy
commandments.
    The congregations of the ungodly have robbed me: but I
have not forgotten thy law.
    At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee: because
of thy righteous judgments.
    I am a companion of all them that fear thee: and keep
thy commandments.
    The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy: O teach me thy
statutes. Glory be, &c.
Psalm 119. (3)
65-80.
    O Lord, thou hast dealt graciously with thy servant: ac-
cording unto thy word.
    O learn me true understanding and knowledge: for I have
believed thy commandments. {66}
    Before I was troubled, I went wrong: but now have I
kept thy word.
    Thou art good and gracious: O teach me thy statutes.
    The proud have imagined a lie against me: but I will
keep thy commandments with my whole heart.
    Their heart is as fat as brawn: but my delight hath been
in thy law.
    It is good for me that I have been in trouble: that I may
learn thy statutes.
    The law of thy mouth is dearer unto me: than thousands
of gold and silver.
    Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: O give me
understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
    They that fear thee will be glad when they see me: be-
cause I have put my trust in thy word.
    I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are right: and that
thou of very faithfulness hast caused me to be troubled.
    O let thy merciful kindness be my comfort: according to
thy word unto thy servant.
    O let thy loving mercies come unto me, that I may live:
for thy law is my delight.
    Let the proud be confounded, for they go wickedly about
to destroy me: but I will be occupied in thy commandments.
    Let such as fear thee, and have known thy testimonies:
be turned unto me.
    O let my heart be sound in thy statutes: that I be not
ashamed. Glory be, &c.

verax Deus.]

O God, the Lord of place and time,
    Who orderest all things prudently,
Brightening with beams the opening prime,
    And burning in the mid-day sky.

Quench Thou the fires of hate and strife,
    The wasting fever of the heart;
From perils guard our feeble life,
    And to our souls Thy peace impart.

This grace on Thy redeemed confer,
    Father, Co-equal Son,
And Holy Ghost, the Comforter,
    Eternal Three in One.—Amen.


(pp) Antiphon
Psalm 119. (1)
81-96.

    Praise ye the Lord.
    My soul hath longed for thy salvation: and I have a good
hope, because of thy word.
    Mine eyes long sore for thy word: saying, O when wilt
thou comfort me?
    For I am become like a bottle in the smoke: yet do I not
forget thy statutes.
    How many are the days of thy servant: when wilt thou
be avenged of them that persecute me
    The proud have digged pits for me: which are not after
thy law.
    All thy commandments are true: they persecute me
falsely; O be thou my help.
    They had almost made an end of me upon earth: but I
forsook not thy commandments.
    O quicken me after thy loving-kindness: and so shall I
keep the testimonies of thy mouth.
    O Lord, thy word: endureth for ever in heaven.
    Thy truth also remaineth from one generation to another:
thou hast laid the foundation of the earth, and it abideth. {69}
    They continue this day according to thine ordinance: for
all things serve thee.
    If my delight had not been in thy law: I should have
perished in my trouble.
    I will never forget thy commandments: for with them thou
hast quickened me.
    I am thine, O save me: for I have sought thy command-
ments.
    The ungodly laid wait for me, to destroy me: but I will
consider thy testimonies.
    I see that all things come to an end: but thy command-
ment is exceeding broad. Glory be, &c.
Psalm 119. (2)
97-112.
    Lord, what love have I unto thy law: all the day long is
my study in it!
    Thou, through thy commandments, hast made me wiser
than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.
    I have more understanding than my teachers: for thy
testimonies are my study.
    I am wiser than the aged: because I keep thy command-
ments.
    I have refrained my feet from every evil way: that I may
keep thy word.
    I have not shrunk from thy judgments: for thou teachest
me.
    O how sweet are thy words unto my throat: yea, sweeter
than honey unto my mouth!
    Through thy commandments I get understanding: there-
fore I hate all evil ways.
    Thy word is a lantern unto my feet: and a light unto my
paths.
    I have sworn, and am stedfastly purposed: to keep thy
righteous judgments.
    I am troubled above measure: quicken me, O Lord, ac-
cording to thy word.
    Let the free-will offerings of my mouth please thee, O
Lord: and teach me thy judgments.
    My soul is always in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.
    The ungodly have laid a snare for me: but yet I swerved
not from thy commandments.
    Thy testimonies have I claimed as mine heritage for ever:
and why? they are the very joy of my heart.
    I have applied my heart to fulfil thy statutes always: even
unto the end. Glory be, &c.
Psalm 119 (3)
113-128.
    I hate them that imagine evil things: but thy law do I love.
    Thou art my defence and shield: and my trust is in thy
word. {70}
    Away from me, ye wicked: I will keep the command-
ments of my God.
    O establish me according to thy word, that I may live:
and let me not be disappointed of my hope.
    Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: yea, my delight
shall be ever in thy statutes.
    Thou hast trodden down all them that depart from thy
statutes: for they imagine but deceit.
    Thou puttest away all the ungodly of the earth like dross:
therefore I love thy testimonies.
    My flesh trembleth for fear of thee: and I am afraid of
thy judgments.
    I deal with the thing that is lawful and right: O give me
not over unto mine oppressors.
    Make thou thy servant to delight in that which is good:
that the proud do me no wrong.
    Mine eyes are wasted away with looking for thy health:
and for the word of thy righteousness.
    O deal with thy servant according unto thy loving-mercy:
and teach me thy statutes.
    I am thy servant; O grant me understanding; that I may
know thy testimonies.
    It is time for thee, Lord, to lay to thine hand: for they
have destroyed thy law.
    For I love thy commandments: above gold and precious
stone.
    Therefore hold I straight all thy commandments: and all
false ways I utterly abhor. Glory be, &c.

Psalm 119. (1)
119-144.
    Praise ye the Lord.
    Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul
keep them.
    When thy word goeth forth: it giveth light and under-
standing unto the simple.
    I opened my mouth, and drew in my breath: for my de-
light was in thy commandments.
    O look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me; as thou
usest to do unto those that love thy Name.
    Order my steps in thy word: and so shall no wickedness
have dominion over me.
    O deliver me from the wrongful dealings of men; and so
shall I keep thy commandments.
    Shew the light of thy countenance upon thy servant: and
teach me thy statutes.
    Mine eyes gush out with water: because men keep not
thy law.
    Righteous art thou, O Lord: and true is thy judgment!
    The testimonies that thou hast commanded: are exceed-
ing righteous and true.
    My zeal hath even consumed me, because mine enemies
have forgotten thy words. {73}
    Thy word is tried to the uttermost: and thy servant
loveth it.
    I am small and of no reputation: yet do I not forget thy
commandments.
    Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness: and thy
law is the truth.
    Trouble and heaviness have taken hold upon me: yet is
my delight in thy commandments.
    The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: O
grant me understanding, and I shall live. Glory be, &c.
Psalm 119. (2)
145-160.
    I call with my whole heart: hear me, O Lord, I will keep
thy statutes.
    Yea, even unto thee do I call: help me, and I shall keep
thy testimonies.
    Early in the morning do I cry unto thee: for in thy word
is my trust.
    Mine eyes prevent the night-watches: that I might be
occupied in thy words.
    Hear my voice, O Lord, according unto thy loving-kind-
ness: quicken me according as thou art wont.
    They draw nigh that of malice persecute me: and are far
from thy law.
    Be thou nigh at hand, O Lord, for all thy commandments
are true.
    As concerning thy testimonies I have known long since:
that thou hast grounded them for ever.
    O consider mine adversity, and deliver me: for I do not
forget thy law.
    Avenge thou my cause, and deliver me: quicken me ac-
cording to thy word.
    Health is far from the ungodly: for they regard not thy
statutes.
    Great is thy mercy, O Lord: quicken me, as thou art wont.
    Many there are that trouble me, and persecute me: yet
do I not swerve from thy testimonies.
    It grieveth me when I see the transgressors: because they
keep not thy law.
    Consider, O Lord, how I love thy commandments: O
quicken me according to thy loving-kindness.
    Thy word is true from everlasting: all the judgments of
thy righteousness endure for evermore. Glory be, &c.
Psalm 119. (3)
161-176.
    Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart
standeth in awe of thy word.
    I am as glad of thy word: as one that findeth great spoils.
    As for lies, I hate and abhor them: but thy law do I
love. {74}
    Seven times a day do I praise thee: because of thy righte-
ous judgments.
    Great is the peace that they have who love thy law: and
they are not offended at it.
    Lord, I have looked for thy saving health: and done after
thy commandments.
    My soul hath kept thy testimonies: and loved them ex-
ceedingly.
    I have kept thy commandments and testimonies: for all
my ways are before thee.
    Let my complaint come before thee, O Lord: give me un-
derstanding according to thy word.
    Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me accord-
ing to thy word.
    My lips shall speak of thy praise: when thou hast taught
me thy statutes.
    Yea, my tongue shall sing of thy word: for all thy com-
mandments are righteous.
    Let thine hand help me: for I have chosen thy command-
ments.
    I have longed for thy saving health, O Lord: and in thy
law is my delight.
    O let my soul live, and it shall praise thee: and thy judg-
ments shall help me.
    I have gone astray like a sheep that is lost: O seek thy
servant; for I do not forget thy commandments. Glory
be, &c.

secretly among the faithful, and in the congregation.
    The works of the Lord are great: sought out of all them
that have pleasure therein.
    His work is worthy to be praised, and had in honour: and
his righteousness endureth for ever.
    The merciful and gracious Lord hath so done his marvel-
lous works: that they ought to be had in remembrance.
    He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he shall
ever be mindful of his covenant.
    He hath showed his people the power of his works; that
he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
    The works of his hands are verity and judgment: all his
commandments are true.
    They stand fast for ever and ever: amid are done in truth
and equity. {77}
    He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded
his covenant for ever; holy and reverend is his Name.

the faithful shall be blessed.
    Riches and plenteousness shall be in his house: and his

he is merciful, loving, and righteous.

words with discretion.
    For he shall never be moved: and the righteous shall be
had in everlasting remembrance.
    He will not be afraid of any evil tidings: for his heart
standeth fast, and believeth in the Lord.

    Who is like unto the Lord our God, that hath his dwell-

that are in heaven and earth?
    He taketh up the simple out of the dust: and lifteth the
poor out of the mire. {78}

princes of his people.

(ccc) Antiphon (5)
Psalm 114 and
115. (5)

    We who live.
    When Israel came out of Egypt: and the house of Jacob
from among the strange people,
    Judah was his sanctuary: and Israel his dominion.
    The sea saw that, and fled: Jordan was driven back.
    The mountains skipped like rams: and the little hills
like young sheep.
    What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest: and
thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
    Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams: and ye little
hills like young sheep?
    Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord: at the
presence of the God of Jacob;
    Who turned the hard rock into a standing water: and
the flint-stone into a springing well.
    Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy Name give
the praise: for thy loving mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
    Wherefore shall the heathen say: Where is now their
God?
    As for our God, he is in heaven: he hath done whatso-
ever pleased him.
    Their idols are silver and gold: even the work of men's
hands.
    They have mouths and speak not: eyes have they, and
see not.
    They have ears and hear not: noses have they and smell
not.
    They have hands, and handle not; feet have they, and
walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
    They that make them are like unto them: and so are all
such as put their trust in them.
    But thou, house of Israel, trust thou in the Lord: he
is their succour and defence.
    Ye house of Aaron, put your trust in the Lord: he is
their helper and defender.
    Ye that fear the Lord, put your trust in the Lord: he is
their helper and defender.
    The Lord hath been mindful of us, and he shall bless us:
even he shall bless the house of Israel, he shall bless the
the house of Aaron. {79}
    He shall bless them that fear the Lord: both small and
great.
    The Lord shall increase you more and more: you and
your children.
    Ye are the blessed of the Lord: who made heaven and
earth.
    All the whole heavens are the Lord's: the earth hath he
given to the children of men.
    The dead praise not thee, O Lord: neither all they that
go down into silence.
    But we will praise the Lord: from this time forth for
evermore. Praise the Lord. Glory be, &c.
(ccc) Antiphon (5)     We who live will praise the Lord.

(eee) Hymn
[Lucis creator
optime.]

Father of Lights, by whom each day,
    Is kindled out of night;
Who, when the heavens were made, didst lay
    Their rudiments in light:
Thou, who didst bind and blend in one,
    The glistening morn and evening pale,
Hear Thou our plaint, when light is gone
    And lawlessness and strife prevail.

Hear, lest the whelming weight of crime
    Wreck us with life in view
Lest thoughts and schemes of sense and time
    Earn us a sinner's due.
So may we knock at heaven's door,
    And strive the prize of life to win
Continually and evermore
    Guarded without and pure within.

This grace on Thy redeemed confer,
    Father, Co-equal Son,
And Holy Ghost the Comforter,
    Eternal Three in One. Amen.

sins, and bring you safe to everlasting life. Amen.


    The Almighty and merciful Lord grant to us pardon, ab-
solution, and remission of all our sins. Amen. {83}
    Turn thou us, O Lord our Saviour.
        And let thine anger cease from us.
    O God, make speed to save me.
        O Lord, make haste to help me.
                            Glory be, &c.
                            As it was, &c.
Antiphon
Psalm 4.
    Have mercy upon me.
    Hear me, when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou
hast set me at liberty when I was in trouble: have mercy
upon me, and hearken unto my prayer.
    O ye sons of men, how long will ye blaspheme mine honour:
and have such pleasure in vanity, and seek after leasing?
    Know this also, that the Lord hath chosen to himself the
man that is godly: when I call upon the Lord, he will hear me.
    Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart,
and in your chamber, and be still.
    Offer the sacrifice of righteousness: and put your trust in
the Lord.
    There be many that say: who will show us any good?
    Lord, lift thou up: the light of thy countenance upon us.
    Thou hast put gladness in my heart: since the time that
their corn, and wine, and oil increased.
    I will lay me down in peace, and take my rest: for it is
thou, Lord, only, that makest me dwell in safety. Glory
be, &c.
Psalm 31.     In thee, O Lord, have I put my trust: let me never be put
to confusion: deliver me in thy righteousness.
    Bow down thine ear to me: make haste to deliver me.
    And be thou my strong rock, and house of defence: that
thou rnayest save me.
    For thou art my strong rock and my castle: be thou also
my guide, and lead me for thy Name's sake.
    Draw me out of the net that they have laid privily for me:
for thou art my strength.
    Into thy hands I commend my spirit: for thou hast re-
deemed me, O Lord, thou God of truth. Glory be, &c.
Psalm 91.     Whoso dwelleth under the defence of the Most High: shall
abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
    I will say unto the Lord, Thou art my hope, and my
strong hold: my God, in him will I trust.
    For he shall deliver thee from the snare of the hunter: and
from the noisome pestilence.
    He shall defend thee under his wings, and thou shalt be
safe under his feathers: his faithfulness and truth shall be thy
shield and buckler. {84}
    Thou shalt not be afraid for any terror by night: nor for
the arrow that flieth by day.
    For the pestilence that walketh in darkness: nor for the
sickness that destroyeth in the noon-day.
    A thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy
right hand: but it shall not come nigh thee.
    Yea, with thine eyes shalt thou behold: and see the reward
of the ungodly.
    For thou, Lord, art my hope: thou hast set thine house of
defence very high.
    There shall no evil happen unto thee: neither shall any
plague come nigh thy dwelling.
    For he shalt give his angels charge over thee: to keep thee
in all thy ways.
    They shall bear thee in their hands: that thou hurt not
thy foot against a stone.
    Thou shalt go upon the lion and adder: the young lion
and the dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet.
    Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I
deliver him: I will set him up, because he hath known my
Name.
    He shalt call upon me, and I will hear him: yea, I am
with him in trouble: I will deliver him, and bring him to
honour.
    With long life will I satisfy him: and show him my sal-
vation. Glory be, &c.
Psalm 134.     Behold now, praise the Lord: all ye servants of the Lord;
    Ye that by night stand in the house of the Lord: even in
the courts of the house of our God,
    Lift up your hands in the sanctuary: and praise the Lord.
    The Lord, that made heaven and earth: give thee blessing
out of Sion. Glory be, &c.
Antiphon     Have mercy upon me, O Lord, and hearken unto my
prayer.

Hymn
[Te lucia ante
terminum.]

Now that the day-light dies away
    Ere we lie down and sleep,
Thee, Maker of the world, we pray
    To own us and to keep.

Let dreams depart and visions fly,
    The offspring of the night;
Keep us, like shrines, beneath Thine eye,
    Pure in our foe's despite. {85}

This grace on Thy redeemed confer,
    Father, Co-equal Son,
And Holy Ghost the Comforter,
    Eternal Three in One. Amen.

phons animad-

    Hail, Queen! mother of mercy, our life, sweetness, and
hope, hail! We exiles cry to thee, the children of Eve.
To thee we sigh with groans and weeping in this valley of
tears. Come then, O our advocate, turn on us thy merciful
eyes, and shew to us, after this banishment, Jesus, the blessed
fruit of thy womb. O kind, O pitiful, O sweet Virgin Mary.
    Pray for us, holy mother of God,
        That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Collect     Almighty everlasting God, who hast prepared the body
and soul of Mary the glorious Virgin Mother, to be a fit
dwelling for Thy Son, by the co-operation of the Holy
Ghost, grant that we, who are gladdened by this comme-
moration of her, may by her pitiful intercession be deli-
vered from present ills, and eternal death, through the
same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
    The help of God remain with us always. Amen.
