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. I am the Resurrection and the Life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.

| Here may be said or sung the Benedictus, p. 6, with

its antiphon.

Lord, have mercy upon us.

Christ, have mercy upon us.
Lord, have mercy upon us.

I Then, in a low voice, shall be said,
UR Father, which art in heaven, Hal-

lowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us. V. And lead us not into temptation.

Bc. But deliver us from evil.
Lord, give thy people eternal rest.

And let thine everlasting light shine upon them.

From the gates of hell,
Lord, deliver their souls.

I believe verily to see the goodness of the Lord,

In the land of the liviny.

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

Let us pray.
GOD, whose nature and property is

ever to have mercy and to forgive, receive our humble petitions; and though we be tied and bound with the chain of our sins, yet let the pitifulness of thy great mercy loose us; for the honour of Jesus Christ, our Mediator and Advocate. Amen. W E beseech thee, O Lord, to show upon

us thine exceeding great mercy, which po tongue can worthily express; and that it may please thee to deliver us from all our sins, and also from the pains that we have for them deserved. Grant this, O Lord, through our Mediator and Advocate, Jesus Christ. Amen. I The following Collects, from the edition of the Pri. mer put forth in the same year with the finally revised version of the Common Prayer, in Queen Elizabeth's reign, may be used on November 1, or on the anniversary of a friend's death, or on other days, as occasion may require. GOD, who by the mouth of S. Paul

thine apostle hast taught us not to weep for them that sleep in Christ; Grant, we beseech thee, that in the coming of thy Son our Lord Jesus Christ, both we, and all other faithful people being departed, may be graciously brought unto the joys everlasting; who shalt come to judge the quick and the dead, and the world by fire. Amen.

ALMIGHTY, eternal God, to whom there
A never is any prayer made without
hope of mercy, be merciful to the souls of
thy servants being departed from this world
in the confession of thy Name, that they
may be associate to the company of thy
saints; through Christ our Lord. Amen."
T ORD, bow thine ears unto our prayers,
I wherein we devoutly call upon thy
mercy; that thou wilt bestow the souls of
thy servants, which thou hast commanded
to depart from this world, in the country of
peace and rest, and cause them to be made
partners with thy holy servants; through
Christ our Lord. . Amen.

Bless we the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Here may be said the Psalm De Profundis, with its

Antiphon and Collect, as in p. 121.

Evensong of the Virge. · 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.

When Evensong of the Dirge is said immediately after any of the Hours, then the above is omitted, and the office begins absolutely from the Antiphon.


Antiphon. I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.

PSALM CXVI. Dilexi quoniam. I AM well pleased : that the Lord hath I heard the voice of my prayer;

That he hath inclined his ear unto me : therefore will I call upon him as long as I


The snares of death compassed me round about: and the pains of hell gat hold upon me.

I found trouble and heaviness, and I called upon the Name of the Lord : O Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous : yea, our God is merciful.

The Lord preserveth the simple : I was in misery, and he helped me.

Turn again then unto thy rest, O my soul : for the Lord bath rewarded thee.

And why ? thou hast delivered my soul from death : mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.

I will walk before the Lord : in the land of the living.

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.

PSALM XLI. Beatus qui intelligit. PLESSED is he that considereth the poor

and needy : the Lord shall deliver him in the time of trouble.

The Lord preserve him, and keep him alive, that he may be blessed upon earth : and deliver not thou him into the will of his enemies.

The Lord comfort him, when he lieth sick upon his bed : make thou all his bed in his sickness.

I said, Lord, be merciful unto me: heal my soul, for I have sinned against thee.

Mine enemies speak evil of me : When shall he die, and his name perish ?

And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity : and his heart conceiveth falsehood within himself, and when he cometh forth he telleth it.

All mine enemies whisper together against me : even against me do they imagine this evil.

Let the sentence of guiltiness proceed against him : and now that he lieth, let him rise up no more.

Yea, even mine own familiar friend, whom I trusted : who did also eat of my bread, hath laid great wait for me.

But be thou merciful unto me, O Lord : raise thou me up again, and I shall reward them.

By this I know thou favourest me : that mine enemy doth not triumph against me.

And when I am in my health, thou upholdest me : and shalt set me before thy face for ever.

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel : world without end. Amen.
