HYMN. Lucis creator optime.
Father of Lights, by whom each day

Is kindled out of night;
Who, when the Heavens were made, didst lay

Their rudiments in light:
Thou who didst bind and blend in one

The glistening morn and evening pale,
Hear thou our prayer when light is gone

And lawlessness and strife prevail.
Hear, lest the whelming weight of crime

Wreck us with life in view;
Lest thoughts and schemes of sense and time

Earn us a sinner's due.

So may we knock at Heaven's bright door,

And strive the prize of life to win, Continually and evermore

Guarded without and pure within.
This grace on thy redeemed confer,

Father, co-equal Son,
And Holy Ghost the Comforter,

Eternal Three in One. Amen.

V. Make me a clean heart, O God.

Magnificat. St. Luke i.
M Y soul doth magnify the Lord : and my
M spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

For he hath regarded : the lowliness of his handmaiden.

For behold, from henceforth : all generations shall call me blessed.

For he that is mighty hath magnified me: and holy is his Name.

And his mercy is on them that fear him : throughout all generations.

He hath showed strength with his arm : he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

He hath put down the mighty from their seat: and hath exalted the humble and meek.

He hath filled the hungry with good things : and the rich he hath sent empty away.

He remembering his mercy hath holpen

en his servant Israel : as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed, 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.

R. And let my cry come unto thee.

Let us pray. T ORD of all power and might, who art the U author and giver of all good things : Graft in our hearts the love of thy name, increase in us true religion, nourish us with all goodness, and of thy great mercy keep us in the same; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

PSALM XIII. Usque quo, Domine ? How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord,

for ever : how long wilt thou hide thy face from me ?

2 How long shall I seek counsel in my soul, and be so vexed in my heart: how long shall mine enemies triumph over me?

3. Consider, and hear me, O Lord my God : lighten mine eyes, that I sleep not in death.

4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed

against him : for if I be cast down, they that trouble me will rejoice at it.

5 But my trust is in thy mercy : and my heart is joyful in thy salvation.

6 I will sing of the Lord, because he hath dealt so lovingly with me : yea, I will praise the Name of the Lord most Highest.

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.

3 0 send out thy light and thy truth, that they may lead me: and bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy dwelling.

4 And that I may go unto the altar of God, even unto the God of my joy and gladness : and upon the harp will I give thanks unto thee, O God, my God.
