COME, let us sing unto the LORD: let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation.

Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving and show 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 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 people with his truth.

The Father of an infinite Majesty; Thine adorable, true: and only Son; Also the Holy Ghost: the Comforter. Thou art the King of Glory: O Christ. Thou art the everlasting Son of the Father. When thou tookest upon thee to deliver man: thou didst humble thyself to be born of a Virgin. When thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death: thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers.

Thou sittest at the right hand of God: in the glory of the Father.

We believe that thou shalt come: to be our Judge.

We therefore pray thee, help thy servants: whom thou hast redeemed with thy precious blood.

Make them to be numbered with thy Saints: in glory everlasting.

O Lord, save thy people and bless thine heritage.

Govern them and lift them up for ever.
Day by day we magnify thee;

And we worship thy Name: ever, world without end.

Vouchsafe, O Lord: to keep us this day without sin.

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 cove nant;

To perform the oath which he sware to our forefather Abraham : that he would give

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;
