Cast me not away from thy presence : and take not thy Holy Spirit from me.

O give me the comfort of thy help again : and stablish me with thy free Spirit.

Then shall I teach thy ways unto the wicked : and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, thou that art the God of my health : and my tongue shall sing of thy righteousness.

Thou shalt open my lips, O Lord : and my mouth shall show thy praise.

For thou desirest no sacrifice, else would I give it thee : but thou delightest not in burnt-offerings.

The sacrifice of God is a troubled spirit : a broken and contrite heart, O God, shalt thou not despise.

O be favourable and gracious unto Sion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifice of righteousness, with the burntofferings and oblations : then shall they offer young bullocks upon thine altar.

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.

Antiphon. Remember not, O Lord God, &c., (as above.)

Let us pray.
O away our offences, we beseech thee, O

Lord, according to thy great mercy. Cleanse us and wash us whiter than snow from our sins, wherein we have done evil in thy sight. Our humble and contrite hearts despise not thou, O Lord, but renew within us thine Holy Spirit; that we may be enabled to tell of thy praise, and being strengthened and confirmed by thy free Spirit, the Comforter, we may at length attain to the heavenly Jerusalem : through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

OUR FATHER.

PSALM CII. Domine, exaudi. LEAR my prayer, O Lord : and let my II crying come unto thee.

Hide not thy face from me in the time of my trouble : incline thine ear unto me when I call; O hear me, and that right soon.

For my days are consumed away like smoke : and my bones are burnt up as it were a fire- brand.

My heart is smitten down, and withered like grass : so that I forget to eat my bread. For the voice of my groaning: my bones will scarce cleave to my flesh.

I am become like a pelican in the wilderness : and like an owl that is in the desert.

I have watched, and am even as it were a sparrow : that sitteth alone upon the housetop.

Mine enemies revile me all the day long : and they that are mad upon me are sworn together against me.

For I have eaten ashes as it were bread : and uningled my drink with weeping;

And that because of thine indignation and wrath : for thou hast taken me up, and cast me down.

My days are gone like a shadow : and I am withered like grass.

But thou, O Lord, shalt endure for ever : and thy remembrance throughout all generations.

Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Sion : for it is time that thou have mercy upon her, yea, the time is come.

And why? thy servants think upon her stones : and it pitieth them to see her in the dust.

The heathen shall fear thy Name, O Lord: and all the kings of the earth thy Majesty;

When the Lord shall build up Sion : and when his glory shall appear;

When he turneth him unto the prayer of the poor destitute : and despiseth not their desire.

This shall be written for those that come after : and the people which shall be born shall praise the Lord.

For he hath looked down from his sanctuary : out of the heaven did the Lord behold the earth;

That he might hear the mournings of such as are in captivity : and deliver the children appointed unto death;

That they may declare the Name of the Lord in Sion : and his worship at Jerusalem ;

When the people are gathered together : and the kingdoms also, to serve the Lord.

He brought down my strength in my journey : and shortened my days.

But I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of mine age : as for thy years, they endure throughout all generations.

Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth : and the heavens are the work of thy hands.

They shall perish, but thou shalt endure : they all shall wax old, as doth a garment;

And as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail...

The children of thy servants shall continue : and their seed shall stand fast in thy sight.

"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.

Antiphon. Remember not, O Lord God, &c., (as above.)

Let us pray.
KIND Saviour, open to us the bosom of

thine infinite love, that the heavenly inheritance, which we lost through sin, we may recover through pénitence. And grant us grace to offer worthy fruits of repentance, that we may wipe away all the sins which we have committed; and so to reverence thy dear Name, that thou too, in the rich abundance of thy mercy, mayest receive our prayers, and we and our seed may press forward to everlasting life; through thy grace and pity, O Lord Jesu Christ, who with the Father and the Holy Ghost livest and reignest, One God, world without end. Amen.

OUR FATHER.

Antiphon. Remember not, O Lord God, &c., (as above.)

PSALM CXXX. De profundis. OUT of the deep have I called unto thee,

O Lord : Lord, hear my voice. O let thine ears consider well : the voice of my complaint.

If thou, Lord, wilt be extreme to mark
