EARLY MORNING.

O God, make speed to save us.

O Lord, make haste to help us. 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.

HYMN. Æterna coeli gloria.
Christ, whose glory fills the skies,

Christ, the true the only Light,
Sun of righteousness, arise,

Triumph o'er the shades of night :
Day-spring from on high be near,
Day-star in my heart appear.
Dark and cheerless is the morn

Unaccompanied by thee;
Joyless is the day's return

Till thy mercy's beams I see,
Till they inward light impart,
Glad my eyes, and warm my heart.
Visit then this soul of mine,

Pierce the gloom of sin and grief;
Fill me, Radiancy Divine ;

Scatter all my unbelief;
More and more thyself display,
Shining to the perfect day. Amen.

Antiphon. Blessed are the poor in spirit.

PSALM CXVIII. Confitemini Domino. GIVE thanks unto the Lord, for he is

gracious : because his mercy endureth for ever.

2 Let Israel now confess, that he is gracious : and that his mercy endureth for ever.

3 Let the house of Aaron now confess : that his mercy endureth for ever.

4 Yea, let them now that fear the Lord confess : that his mercy endureth for ever.

5 I called upon the Lord in trouble ; and the Lord heard me at large.

6 The Lord is on my side : I will not fear what man doeth unto me.

7 The Lord taketh my part with them that help me : therefore shall I see my desire upon mine enemies.

*8 It is better to trust in the Lord : than to put any confidence in man.

9 It is better to trust in the Lord : than to put any confidence in princes.

1o All nations compassed me round about: but in the Name of the Lord will I destroy them.

11 They kept me in on every side, they kept me in, I say, on every side : but in the Name of the Lord will I destroy them.

12 They came about me like bees, and are extinct even as the fire among the thorns : for in the Name of the Lord I will destroy them..

13 Thou hast thrust sore at me, that I might fall : but the Lord was my help..

14 The Lord is my strength, and my song: and is become my salvation.

15 The voice of joy and health is in the dwellings of the righteous : the right hand of the Lord bringeth mighty things to pass.

16 The right hand of the Lord hath the pre-eminence : the right hand of the Lord bringeth mighty things to pass.

17 I shall not die, but live : and declare the works of the Lord.

18 The Lord hath chastened and corrected me : but he hath not given me over unto death.

19 Open me the gates of righteousness : that I may go into them, and give thanks unto the Lord.

20 This is the gate of the Lord : the righteous shall enter into it.

21 I will thank thee, for thou hast heard me : and art become my salvation.

22 The same stone which the builders refused : is become the head-stone in the corner.

23 This is the Lord's doing : and it is marvellous in our eyes.

24 This is the day which the Lord hath made : we will rejoice and be glad in it.

25 Help me now, O Lord : 0 Lord, send us now prosperity.

26 Blessed be he that cometh in the Name of the Lord : we have wished you good luck, ye that are of the house of the Lord.

27 God is the Lord who hath showed us light : bind the sacrifice with cords, yea, even unto the horns of the altar.

28 Thou art my God, and I will thank thee : thou art my God, and I will praise thee.

29 O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious : and his mercy endureth for ever.

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. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven : blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.

y. Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto thee.

Let us pray.
LORD Jesu Christ, most poor and mild.

of spirit, who didst mourn and lament for our sins and infidelity: Grant us likewise to be poor and mild of spirit, and so to weep and wail for our offences, that we may be partners of thy Heavenly kingdom: who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

HYMN. Rector Potens, Verax Deus.
O God of truth, O Lord of might,
Who orderest time and change aright,
Brightening the morn with golden gleams,
Kindling the noon-day's fiery beams :
Quench thou in us the flames of strife,
From passion's heat preserve our life,
Our bodies keep from perils free,
And give our souls true peace in thee.
Almighty Father, hear our cry,
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord most high,
Who with the Holy Ghost and thee
Doth live and reign eternally. Amen.

Antiphon. Blessed are the meek.

PSALM CXX. Ad Dominum. VHEN I was in trouble I called upon

the Lord : and he heard me.
