His salvation is nigh unto those who fear him, that glory may dwell in the land.

Mercy and truth are met together, righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

Truth shall flourish on the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

The Lord will give strength unto his people ; the Lord will give unto his people the blessing of peace.

Blessed are the people whose strength is from thee, and in whose heart are thy ways.

Teach us to do thy will, for thou art our God; O let thy good spirit lead us into the paths of righteousness.

Or this.

Gloria in Excelsis. CLORY be to God on high, and on earth peace,

U good will towards men. We praise thee, we bless thee, we worship thee, we glorify thee, we give thanks to thee, for thy great glory; O Lord God, heavenly King, God the Father Almighty.

O Lord, through thy only-begotten Son Jesus Christ, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, who taketh away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us ! Through him that taketh away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us. Through him that taketh away the sins of the world, receive our prayer. Through him that sitteth at thy right hand, O God, our Father, have mercy upon us. For thou only art holy, thou only art the Lord. And to thee, O God, through Christ, by the Holy Ghost, be honor and glory for ever. Amen.

Proper Psalms.
MORNING PRAYER.

Psalm LXVIII.
ET God arise, and let his enemies be scattered,
I let those also who hate him flee before him.

Like as the smoke vanisheth, so shalt thou drive them away; and like as wax melteth at the fire, so shall the ungodly perish at the presence of God.

But let the righteous be glad, and rejoice before God; yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

O sing unto God, and sing praises unto his name; magnify him who rideth upon the heavens; praise him in his name JEHOVAH, and rejoice before him.

He is a Father of the fatherless, and defendeth the cause of the widows ; even God in his holy habitation.

God restoreth the solitary to their families, and bringeth the prisoners out of captivity ; but letteth the rebellious continue in a dry land.

O God, when thou wentest forth before the people, when thou didst march through the wilderness;

The earth shook, and the heavens dropped at the presence of God; even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.

Thou, O God, sentest a gracious rain upon thine inheritance, and refreshedst it when it was weary.

Thy people dwelt in the midst of thy food; for thou, O God, didst of thy goodness provide for their need.

The Lord gave the song of victory ; great was the company of those who published it.

Kings with their armies did flee and were discomfited, and she who staid at home divided the spoil.

The chariots of God's host are numberless, even thousands of thousands, and the Lord is among them, as in the holy place of Sinai.

Thou art gone up on high, thou hast led captivity captive, and received gifts from men; yea, even from thine enemies; and here wilt thou dwell, O Lord God.

Praised be the Lord daily ; even the God who helpeth us, and poureth his benefits upon us.

He is our God, even the God of whom cometh salvation ; God is the Lord, by whom we escape death.

The Lord hath said, I will bring my people again as I did from Bashan ; mine own will I bring again as I did once from the deep of the sea.

Sing unto God, O ye kingdoms of the earth ; O sing praises unto the Lord ;

Who sitteth in the heavens over all, from the beginning ; lo, he doth utter his voice, yea, and that a mighty voice.

Ascribe ye the power to God; his excellency is over Israel ; his strength is in the clouds.

O God, wonderful art thou in thy holy places; the God of Israel will give strength and power unto his people ; blessed be God.

Psalm LXXVIII.
TEAR my law, O my people ; incline your ears

unto the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable ; I will utter sayings of old time;

Which we have heard and known, and such as our fathers have told us;

That we should not hide them from the children of the generations to come, but show the honor of the Lord, his mighty and wonderful works that he hath done.

He made a covenant with Jacob, and gave Israel a law, which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children;

That their posterity might know it, and the children who were yet unborn;

To the intent that when they came up, they might show their children the same;

That they might put their trust in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments.

Now unto the King eternal, etc.
Be honor and glory, etc.

EVENING PRAYER.

PSALM XLIV. W E have heard with our ears, O God, our

v fathers have told us, what thou hast done in their time of old.

How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy

hand, and planted them in ; how thou didst destroy the nations, and cast them out.

For they gat not the land in possession through their own sword, neither was it their own arm that helped them ;

But thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst favor unto them.

Thou art my King, O God; send help unto Jacob.

For I will not trust in my bow; it is not my sword that shall help me.

But it is thou who savest us from our enemies, and puttest them to confusion who hate us.

We make our boast of God all day long, and will praise thy name forever.

PSALM CV.
GIVE thanks unto the Lord, and call upon

his name; tell the people what things he hath done.

O let your songs be of him, and praise him ; and let your talking be of all his wondrous works.

Rejoice in his holy name ; let the heart of those rejoice who seek the Lord.

Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his face evermore.

Remember the marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.
