INTROIT. Miserere mei. Ps. 56.
Be merciful unto me, O God, for man goeth about to devour me: he is daily fighting and troubling me. Ps. ibid. Mine enemies are daily in hand to swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me. Be merciful.

Let thy bountiful goodness, O Lord, we beseech thee, sanctify this our fasting: and effectually bestow upon us the remission of all our sins. Through.

¶ Seasonal Prayers as on the preceding Sunday.

For the EPISTLE. Jonah 3:1-10
1 And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying,
2 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee.
3 So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days' journey.
4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.
5 So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.
6 For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes.
7 And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water:
8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.
9 Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?
10 And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.

GRADUAL. Ps. 54. Hear my prayer, O God: and hearken unto the words of my mouth. V. Save me, O God, for thy Name's sake: and avenge me in thy strength.

TRACT. Ps. 103. O Lord deal not, as on Ash Wednesday.

GOSPEL. St John 7:32-39a
32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.
33 Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.
34 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.
35 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?
36 What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?
37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive.

OFFERTORY. Ps. 6. Turn thee, O Lord, and deliver my soul: O save me for thy mercy's sake.

Grant, we beseech thee, O Lord our God: that this saving victim may effectually avail, both for the cleansing of our souls from all their sins, and for the obtaining of the favour of thy heavenly Majesty. Through.

COMMUNION. Ps. 24. The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.

O Lord, who hast made us partakers in this Sacrament of our salvation: grant, we beseech thee, that the same may be profitable unto us both for the cleansing and the healing of our souls. Through.

Over the people. Let us prayer. Bow down before the Lord.

Keep, we beseech thee, O Lord, thy faithful people, both outwardly in their bodies and inwardly in their souls: that they, cleaving stedfastly to all good works, may ever be defended by thy mighty power. Through.
