Then shall be said or sung this Psalm following, except

on Easter Day. Venite exultemus Domino. Psal. xcv. O COME, let us sing unto the Lord : let

us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation.

Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving : and shew ourselves glad in him with Psalms.

For the Lord is a great God : and a great King above all gods.

In his hand are the deep places of the earth : the strength of the hills is his also.

The sea is his, and he made it : and his hands formed the dry land.

O come, let us worship, and fall down : and kneel before the Lord our Maker.

For he is our God : and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.

To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts : as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness ;

When your fathers tempted me : proved me, and saw my works.

Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said : It is a people that do err in their hearts, and they have not known my ways.

Unto whom I sware in my wrath : that they should not enter into my rest.

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

Be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

E praise thee, O God : we acknowledge

Heaven and earth are full of the Majesty : of thy Glory.

The glorious company of the Apostles : praise thee.

The goodly fellowship of the Prophets : praise thee.

The noble army of Martyrs : praise thee.

The holy Church throughout all the world : doth acknowledge thee,

The Father : of an infinite Majesty ;
Thine honourable, true : and faithful Son;
Also the Holy Ghost : the Comforter.
Thou art the King of Glory : 0 God.

There is joy amongst thy holy Angels : over every sinner that repenteth.

When thou didst determine to deliver man : thou didst send a Saviour, Christ, the Lord.

When thou hadst given him the victory over death : thou didst open the kingdom of heaven to all believers.

Thou hast seated him at thy right hand : and crowned him with glory.

We believe : thou hast ordained him to be our judge.

We therefore pray thee, help thy servants : whom thou hast redeemed in thy boundless love.

Make them to be numbered with thy Saints : in glory everlasting.

O Lord, save thy people : and bless thine heritage.

Govern them : and lift them up for ever.
Day by day : we magnify thee;

And we worship thy Name : ever world without end.

Vouchsafe, O Lord : to keep us this day without sin.

O Lord, have mercy upon us : have mercy upon us.

O Lord, let thy mercy lighten upon us : as our trust is in thee.

O Lord, in thee have I trusted : let me never be confounded.
