I Then shall be read, in like manner, the second Lesson,

taken out of the New Testament, according to the Table or Calendar.

1 And after that, the following Psalm.

Jubilate Deo. Psalm c. O BE joyful in the LORD, all ye lands : serve

the LORD with gladness, and come before his presence

with a song Be ye sure that the LORD he is God; it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves ; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise; be thankful unto him, and speak good of his Name.

For the Lord is gracious, his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth from generation to generation

T Or this Hymn. Benedictus. St. Luke i. 68. BLESSED be the Lord God of Israel ; for

he hath visited and redeemed his people;

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

T Then shall be said the Apostles' Creed by the Minister and

the People, standing. And any Churches may omit the words, He descended into hell, or may, instead of them, use the words, He went into the place of departed spirits, which are considered as words of the same meaning in the 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 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

T Or this I BELIEVE in one God the Father Al

mighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And of all things visible and invisible :

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the onlybegotten Son of God, Begotten of his Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, Begotten, not made, Being of one substance with the Father, By whom all things were made; Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, And was made man, And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried ; And the third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures ; And ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of the Father. And he shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead; Whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, Who spake by the Prophets. And ì believe one Catholic and Apostolic Church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins; And I look for the Resurrection of the dead, And the Life of the world to come. Amen.

? And after that, these Prayers following, all devoutly kneel

ing ; the Minister first pronouncing,
The Lord be with you.
Answer. And with thy spirit.

Minister. Let us pray.
O Lord, show thy mercy upon us.
Answer. And grant us thy salvation.

Minister. O God, make clean our hearts within us.

Answer. And take not thy Holy Spirit from

us.

T Then shall follow the Collect for the day, except when the

Communion Service is read; and then the Collect for the day shall be omitted here.

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. Amen.

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, nei ther run into any kind of danger; but that all
