To be used at Morning Prayer, instead of the Psalm,

O come, let us sing, &c. CLORY be to God in the highest, on earth peace,

good will toward men. Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound ; they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance ;

Through the tender mercies of our God, whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us;

To give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide our feet in the way of peace.

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him who bringeth good tidings; who publisheth peace ; who bringeth good tidings of good; who publisheth salvation; who saith unto Sion, Thy God reigneth.

There is sprung up a light for the righteous, and joyful gladness for such as are true of heart.

Proper Psalms.

Psalm XLV.
M Y heart is inditing joyful words ; I speak of

1 the things concerning the King; my tongue is as the pen of a ready writer.

Thou art the fairest of the children of men; full of grace are thy lips ; for God hath blessed thee forever.

Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, () thou Mighty One, with thy glory and thy majesty.

And in thy majesty ride prosperously, for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

Thy throne, O God, endureth forever; the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity ; wherefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

I will make thy name to be remembered to all generations; so that the people shall praise thee for ever and ever.
