In holiness and righteousness before him,
All the i days | of our | life.
Through the tender mercy of our | God,
Whereby the day spring from on high hath

visited us;

To give light to them that sit in darkness, and in

the shadow of death, And to guide our feet in | to the way of | peace,

LUKE I. 68–75,78,79,


LORD, now lettest thou thy servant de part in

peace, According | to thy | word.

For mine eyes have seen | thy sal | vation,
Which thou hast prepared before the face of | all

people :
To be a light to lighten the gentiles,
And to be the glory of thy people | Israel.

LUKE II, 29-32,

For theirs is the kingdom of heaven,

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst | after !

But woe for you that are rich,

ye have received your / cunso | lation.
Woe for you that are | full,
For ye shall hunger.
Woe for you that I laugh | now,
For / ye shall | mourn and weep.
Woe for you, when all men shail speak , well / of you;
For so did their fathers to the false prophets.

Not every one that saith unto me, I Lord, | Lord;
Shall enter into the kingdom of heaven:
But he that doeth the will
Of my Father who is in heaven.
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine,
And do - eth them,
I will liken him unto a | wise | man,
Which built his , house up./ on a rock ;
And the rain descended, and the floods I came,
And the winds blew, and beat up on that | house,
And it | fell | not ;
For it was founued up | on a | rock.
MATTHEW V. 3-12,14,16. VII. 21,24,25. LUKE VI.


THOUGH I speak with the tongues of men and

of angels, And have not | love, I am become as sounding brass, Or as a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the / gift of prophecy, And understand all mysleries | and all I knowledge; And though I have all faith, so that I could rel

move i mountains, And have not lore, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed thel

And though I give my | body 1 to be I burned,
And I have not | love,
It | profit | eth me | nothing.

Love suffereth long and is | kind
Love | en | vieth ! riot;
Love vaunteth not itself,
Is 1 - not | pufied | up.
Love doth not behave it / self un / seemly:
Love seeketh not its own,
Is not easi | ly pro i voked,
Thinketh no evil.
Love rejoiceth not | in in | iquity,
But rei joiceth in the truth;
Love beareth all things, be | lieveth | all things,
Hopeth | all things, endureth | all things.
Love I never faileth :
But whether there be prophecies, I they | shall | fail :
Whether there be tongues, | they shall | cease ;
Whether there be knowledge, it shall / vanish al

For we know in | part,
And we prophesy in | part.
But when that which is 1 perfect is | come,
Then that which is in part | shall be done al way.
For now we see through a glass, darkly ;
But then | face to face:
Now I know in | part ;
But then shall I know, even as I also I am I known.
Covet therefore earnestly the best gifts,
And yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
For now abideth faith, hope, love, i these three;
But the greatest of these is I love.



THE Lord is risen:
He is risen in deed.

Christ is risen | from the dead :
And is become the first | fruits of | them that I slept.

I am He; / saith the Saviour,
That | lived | and was dead :

And | - behold!
I am a i live for ever | more:
He that died | for our | sins,
Rose again for our justification.
For since by | man came | death,
By man came also the resur | rection | from the


For as in | Adam all | die :
Even so in Christ shall | all be made a , live.
For as we have borne the image of the earthly,
We shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
For this corruptible must put on incor | ruption :
And this mortal must / put on | immor | tality.
Say unto the weak in ''spirit, Be strong!
And to the sorrowful, | Be of good | comfort !
Say unto the mourners, | Sorrow | not
As those that have no hope.
