Reader, or by any one delegated by him, all standing.

The Hymns, when not sung, may be recited by the Reader, and all present, line by line, alternately; as is enjoined for the Veni Creator" in the English Ordinal, on occasions when that Hymn is not sung by the choir.

There is no sitting in any part of the service.

When the Hours are used for Family worship in an ordinary sitting room, the best arrangement is this :—that the members of the Family stand and kneel with their backs to the side walls and their faces towards the centre of the room ; the Reader standing at the end of the room and facing the vacant space (or table) between the two lines of worshippers. This will give the ordinary choir arrangement. Every one should kneel upright. It is better not to use chairs at all if possible, or only their backs for support. Thus every one will be able to see, to hear, and to be heard. Any arrangement however, is better than the ordinary one in which the members of the Family kneel in different directions, with their backs to the Reader, and their arms on the seats of their chairs, having their faces directed towards the walls and corners of the room. If Christ be in the midst of us, let us kneel towards him.

PSALM LXVII. Deus misereatur. MOD be merciful unto us, and bless us :

U and show us the light of his countenance, and be merciful unto us :

That thy way may be known upon earth : thy saving health among all nations.

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

O let the nations rejoice and be glad : for thou shalt judge the folk righteously, and govern the nations upon earth.

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

Then shall the earth bring forth her increase : and God, even our own God, shall give us his blessing.

God shall bless us : and all the ends of the world shall fear him.

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.
