Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be
alway acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength and my redeemer.
Psalm xix. 14.
O send out thy light and thy truth, that they may lead me, and
bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy dwelling. Psalm xliii.
Thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose
name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also
that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit
of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

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

ourselves glad in him with psalms.
For the LORD is a great God; * and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are all the corners of the earth; * and the strength
of the hills is his also.
The sea is his, and he made it; * and his hands prepared the
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.

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

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.
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.
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; 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.
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.
