C.

Who shall ascend unto the hill of the Lord ?

Who shall stand in His holy place?
He that hath clean hands and a pure heart;
Who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity nor sworn

deceitfully. He that walketh uprightly and worketh righteousness,

And speaketh the truth in his heart. He that doeth no evil to his neighbor;

Nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbor; He that sweareth to his own hurt and changeth not;

But he honoreth those who fear the Lord; He shall receive a blessing from the Lord,

And righteousness from the God of his salvation. Wherewith shall we come before the Lurd,

And bow ourselves before the Most High ? He hath shown thee, O man, what is good,

And what doth the Lord require of thee, But to do justly and to love mercy,

And to walk humbly with thy God? When thou bringest thy gift to the altar, If thou rememberest that thy brother hath aught against

thee, First go and be reconciled to thy brother,

Then come and offer thy gift.

M. Let us offer the sacrifices of righteousness,

And put our trust in the Lord;
C. For the Lord loveth righteousness,

And the upright shall behold His face.
Lead me, O Lord, in Thy righteousness,

Make Thy way straight before my face.
Thou desirest not sacrifice, else would I give it.

Thou delightest not in burnt-offerings.
Behold Thou desirest truth in the heart.
To do justice and judgment is more acceptable than

sacrifice.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,

And renew a right spirit within me.
Return unto thy rest, oh my soul,

For the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee;
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,

And into His courts with praise;
For the Lord is great, His mercy is everlasting,

And His truth endureth to all generations.
All. Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation. Deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the

power and the glory forever and ever. Choir. Amen.

OR

AU. Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my

heart be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my Strength and my Redeemer.

Choir. Amen.

I will extol Thee, my God, O King,

And I will bless Thy name forever and ever.
Every day will I bless Thee,

And I will praise Thy name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;

And His greatness is upsearchable.
One generation shall praise Thy works to another,

And shall declare Thy mighty acts.
I will speak of the glorious honor of Thy majesty,

And I will declare Thy greatness.
Men shall abundantly utter the memory of Thy great goodness,

And shall sing of Thy righteousness.
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion,

Slow to anger and great in mercy.
The Lord is good to all,

And His tender mercies are over all His works.
All Thy works praise Thee, O Lord !

They speak of the glory of Thy kingdom and Thy power,
To make known to the sons of men Thy mighty acts,

And the glorious majesty of Thy kingdom.
Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,

And Thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
The Lord upholdeth all that fall,

And raiseth up all those that be bowed down.

The eyes of all wait upon Thee,

And Thou givest them their meat in due season.
Thou openest Thine hand,

And satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
The Lord is righteous in all His ways,

And holy in all His works.
He keepeth the truth forever.

He executeth judgment for the oppressed.
The Lord is nigh unto all that call upon Him,

To all that call upon Him in truth.
He fulfils the desire of them that fear Him;

He heareth their cry and will save them.
The Lord preserveth all those who love Him.

Let all flesh bless His holy name forever and ever.
All. Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.

Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in
Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us our
debts as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation.
Deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the

power and the glory forever and ever. Choir. Amen.

OR

All. Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart

be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my Strength and my Redeemer.

Choir. Amen.

M.

Praise the Lord! for it is a good thing to sing praises unto

our God.

C.

It is pleasant, and praise is comely.
Great is our Lord, and great is His power;

Yea, and His wisdom is infinite. Praise God in His sanctuary.

Praise Him in the firmament of His power. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens.

Praise Him in the heights. Praise him all ye angels of His.

Praise ye Him all His hosts. Praise ye Him sun and moon.

Praise Him all ye stars of light. Praise Him ye heavens of heavens;

And ye waters that be above the heavens. Let them praise the name of the Lord,

For He commanded and they were created. He hath established them forever and ever,

And given them a law which shall not be broken. Praise the Lord from the earth, monsters and all deeds;

Fire and hail, snow and vapor, stormy wind fulfilling His

word;

Mountains and all hills, fruitful trees and all cedars;

Beasts and all cattle, creeping things and flying fowl;
