Praise Him, sun and moon : praise Him, all ye stars and light.

Praise Him, all ye heavens : and ye waters that are above the heavens.

Let them praise the Name of the Lord : for He spake the word, and they were made; He commanded, and they were created.

He hath made them fast for ever and ever : He hath given them a law which shall not be broken.

Praise the Lord upon earth : ye dragons, and all deeps;

Fire and hail, snow and vapours : wind and storm, fulfilling His word ;

Mountains and all hills : fruitful trees and all cedars;

Beasts and all cattle : worms and feathered fowls;

Let them praise His Name in the dance : let them sing praises unto Him with tabret and harp.

For the Lord hath pleasure in His people : and helpeth the meek-hearted.

Let the saints be joyful with glory : let them rejoice in their beds.

Let the praises of God be in their mouth : and a two-edged sword in their hands;

To be avenged of the heathen : and to rebuke the people;

To bind their kings in chains : and their nobles with links of iron.

That they may be avenged of them, as it is written : Such honour have all His saints.

S. Luke i. 68.
LESSED be the Lord God of Israel : for He

hath 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 hands of all that hate us ;

To perform the mercy promised to our forefathers : and to remember His holy Covenant;

To perform the oath which He sware to our forefather Abraham : that He would give us ;

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



, ;

To give knowledge of salvation unto His people : for the remission of their sins,

Through the tender mercy of our God : whereby the day-spring from on high hath visited us;

To give light to them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death : and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.


llere may be said the Apostles' Creed. 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 again 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.
