honeycomb. And he took it, and did eat before them. And he said unto them. These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all must needs be fulfilled which were written of me in the law of Moses, and in the Prophets, and in the Psalms. Then opened he their wits, that they might understand the scriptures, and said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise again from death the third day; and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, and must begin at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things.

The first Sunday after Easter.

Beatus vir: Psalm cxii. BLESSED is the man that feareth the Lord : he hath great delight in his commandments.

His seed shall be mighty upon earth : the generation of the faithful shall be blessed.

Riches and plenteousness shall be in his house : and his righteousness endureth for ever.

Unto the godly there ariseth up light in the darkness : he is merciful, loving, and righteous.

A good man is merciful, and lendeth : and will guide his words with discretion.

For he shall never be moved : and the righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance.

He will not be afraid for any evil tidings : for his heart standeth fast, and believeth in the Lord.

His heart is stablished, and

will not shrink : until he see his desire upon his enemies.

He hath sparsed abroad, and given to the poor : and his righteousness remaineth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

The ungodly shall see it, and it shall grieve him : he shall gnash with his teeth, and consume away; the desire of the ungodly shall perish.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, &c.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever &c.

The Epistle. 1 John v. All that is born of God overcometh the world; and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is sit that overcometh the world, but h he which believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This Jesus Christ is he that came by water and blood; not by water only, but by water and blood : and it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three which bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three which bear record in earth, the spirit, and water, and blood : and these three are one. If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater : for this is the witness of God that is greater, which he testified of his Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar, because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, how that God hath given unto us eternal life; and this life is in

The Gospel. John xx. The same day at night, which was the first day of the sabbaths, when the doors were shut, (where the disciples were assembled together for fear of the Jews,) came Jesus and stood in the midst, and said unto them, Peace be unto you. And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord. Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you : as my Father sent me, even so send I you also. And when he had isaid those words, he breathed on them, and said unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost. Whosesoever’s sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosesoever's sins ye retain, they are retained.

The second Sunday after Easter. Deus in adjutorium. Psalm lxx.

Haste thee, O God, to deliver me : make haste to help me, O Lord.

Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul : let them be turned backward and put to confusion that wish me evil.

Let them (for their reward) be soon brought to shame : that cry over me, There, there.

But let all those that seek thee be joyful and glad in thee : and let all such as delight in thy salvation say alway, The Lord be praised.

As for me, I am poor and in misery : haste thee unto me, (O God.)

Thou art my help, and my

The Collect. ALMIGHTY God, which hast given thy holy Son to be unto us both a sacrifice for sin, and also an example of godly life ; Give us the grace that we may always most thankfully receive that his inestimable benefit, and also daily endeavour ourselves to follow the blessed steps of his most holy life.

The Epistle. 1 Peter ii. This is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, and suffer wrong undeserved. For what praise is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye take it patiently? But and if, when ye do well, ye suffer wrong, and take it patiently, then is there thank with God. For hereunto verily were ye called : for Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an ensample, that ye should follow his steps : which did no sin, neither was there guile found in his mouth : which, when he was reviled, reviled not again ; when he suffered, he threatened not ; but committed the vengeance to him that judgeth righteously: which his own self bare our sins in his body on the tree, that we, being delivered from sin, should live unto righteousness : by whose stripes ye were healed. For ye were as sheep going astray ; but are now turned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

The Gospel. John x. Christ said to his disciples, I am the good shepherd : a good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. An hired servant, and he which is not the shepherd, (neither the sheep are his own,) seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and "flieth ; and the wolf catcheth, and scattereth the sheep. The hired servant 'flieth, because he is an hired servant, and careth not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. As my Father knoweth me, even so know I also my Father : and I give my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold ; them also must I bring, and k and fleeth 1552

The third Sunday.

Confitebimur. Psalm lxxv.

Unto thee (0 God) do we give thanks : yea, unto thee do we give thanks.

Thy name also is so nigh : and that do thy wondrous works declare.

When I receive the congregation : I shall judge according unto right. :

The earth is weak, and all the inhabiters thereof : I bear up the pillars of it.

I said unto the fools, Deal not so madly : and to the ungodly, Set not up your horn.

Set not up your horn on high : and speak not with a stiff neck.

For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west : nor yet from the south.

And why? God is the Judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red : it is full mixed, and he poureth out of the same.

As for the dregs thereof : all the ungodly of the earth shall drink them, and suck them out.

But I will talk of the God of Jacob : and praise him for ever.

All the horns of the ungodly
