Magnificat. St. Luke i. MY

Y soul doth magnify the Lord : and

my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

For he hath regarded. : the lowliness of his handmaiden.

For behold, from henceforth : all generations shall call me blessed.

For he that is mighty hath magnified me : and holy is his Name.

And his mercy is on them that fear him : throughout all generations.

He hath shewed strength with his arm : he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

He hath put down the mighty from their seat : and hath exalted the humble and meek.

He hath filled the hungry with good things : and the rich he hath sent empty away.

He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel : as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed, for

ever.

Now unto the King eternal : immortal, invisible : the only wise God:

Be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Or else this Psalm.

Cantate Domino. Psal. xcviii. O

SING unto the Lord a new song : for he

hath done marvellous things. His right hand, and his holy arm : hath gotten him the victory.

The Lord hath made known his salvation his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.

He hath remembered his mercy and truth toward the house of Israel : all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth : make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

Sing unto the Lord with the harp : with the harp and the voice of a psalm.

With trumpets and sound of cornet : make a joyful noise before the Lord the King.

Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof : the world, and they that dwell therein.

Let the floods clap their hands; let the hills be joyful together before the Lord : for he cometh to judge the earth.

With righteousness shall he judge the world : and the people with equity.

Now unto the King eternal : immortal, invisible : the only wise God:

Be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

in peace : according to thy word. For mine eyes have seen : thy salvation,

Which thou hast prepared : before the face of all people;

To be a light to lighten the Gentiles : and to be the glory of thy people Israel.

Now unto the King eternal : immortal, invisible : the only wise God :

Be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Or this.
Venite ad me. St. Matth. xi. 28.
NOME unto me all

For I am meek and lowly of heart : and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

For my yoke is easy: and my burden is light. Now unto the King eternal : immortal, invisible : the only wise God:

Be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Or else this Psalm.
Deus misereatur. Psal. lxvii.
GOD

OD be merciful unto us, and bless us :

and cause his face to shine upon us. That thy way may be known upon earth : thy saving health among all nations.

Let the people praise thee, O God : let all the people praise thee.

O let the nations be glad and sing for joy :

for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth.

Let the people praise thee, O God : let all the people praise thee.

Then shall the earth yield her increase : and God, even our own God shall bless us.

Be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen. ( Then shall the Minister declare the faith required in the

St. John says,

This is the commandment of God, that we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another. 1 St. John üi. 23.

St. Paul says,

If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Rom. x. 9.
