First Week: Sunday

Sunday EP1 (Saturday Night)

Psalm 141.

Domine, clamavi

  1. LORD, I call upon thee, haste thee unto me :   and consider my voice when I cry unto thee.
  2. Let my prayer be set forth in thy sight as the incense : and let the lifting up of my hands be an evening sacrifice.
  3. Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth : and keep the door of my lips.
  4. O let not mine heart be inclined to any evil thing : let me not be occupied in ungodly works with the men that work wickedness, lest I eat of such things as please them.
  5. Let the righteous rather smite me friendly : and reprove me.
    But let not their precious balms break my head: yea, I will pray yet against their wickedness.
  6. Let their judges be overthrown in stony places: that they may hear my words, for they are sweet.
  7. Our bones lie scattered before the pit : like as when one breaketh and heweth wood upon the earth.
  8. But mine eyes look unto thee, O Lord God : in thee is my trust, O cast not out my soul.
  9. Keep me from the snare that they have laid for me : and from the traps of the wicked doers.
  10. Let the ungodly fall into their own nets together : and let me ever escape them.

Psalm 142.

Voce mea ad Dominum

  1. I CRIED unto the Lord with my voice : yea, even unto the Lord did I make my supplication.
  2. I poured out my complaints before him : and shewed him of my trouble.
  3. When my spirit was in heaviness thou knewest my path : in the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.
  4. I looked also upon my right hand : and saw there was no man that would know me.
  5. I had no place to flee unto : and no man cared for my soul.
  6. I cried unto thee, O Lord, and said : Thou art my hope, and my portion in the land of the living.
  7. Consider my complaint : for I am brought very low.
  8. O deliver me from my persecutors : for they are too strong for me.
  9. Bring my soul out of prison, that I may give thanks unto thy Name : which thing if thou wilt grant me, then shall the righteous resort unto my company.

Philippians 2:6-11.

  1. Jesus, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
  2. But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
  3. And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
  4. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
  5. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
  6. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Romans xi. 25.

For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father’s sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

St. Luke i. 46.

Magnificat.

  1. My soul doth magnify the Lord: and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
  2. For he hath regarded: the lowliness of his handmaiden.
  3. For behold, from henceforth: all generations shall call me blessed.
  4. For he that is mighty hath magnified me: and holy is his Name.
  5. And his mercy is on them that fear him: throughout all generations.
  6. He hath showed strength with his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
  7. He hath put down the mighty from their seat: and hath exalted the humble and meek;.
  8. He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich he hath sent empty away.
  9. He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel: as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed, for ever.

Saturday NP

Psalm 4.

Cum invocarem.

  1. Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast set me at liberty when I was in trouble; have mercy upon me, and hearken unto my prayer.
  2. O ye sons of men, how long will ye blaspheme mine honour: and have such pleasure in vanity, and seek after falsehood?
  3. Know this also, that the LORD hath chosen to himself the man that is godly: when I call upon the LORD he will hear me.
  4. Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart, and in your chamber, and be still.
  5. Offer the sacrifice of righteousness: and put your trust in the LORD.
  6. There be many that say: Who will show us any good?
  7. LORD, lift thou up: the light of thy countenance upon us.
  8. Thou hast put gladness in my heart: yea, more than when their corn and wine and oil increase.
  9. I will lay me down in peace, and take my rest: for it is thou, LORD, only, that makest me dwell in safety.

Psalm 134.

Ecce nunc.

  1. Behold now, praise the LORD: all ye servants of the LORD;
  2. Ye that by night stand in the house of the LORD: even in the courts of the house of our God.
  3. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary: and praise the LORD.
  4. The LORD that made heaven and earth: give thee blessing out of Sion.

Deuteronomy vi. 4.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

St. Luke ii. 29.

Nunc dimittis.

  1. Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, * according to thy word.
  2. For mine eyes have seen * thy salvation,
  3. Which thou hast prepared * before the face of all people;
  4. To be a light to lighten the Gentiles, * and to be the glory of thy people Israel.

Sunday MP

Psalm 95.

Venite, exultemus

  1. O COME, let us sing unto the Lord : let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation.
  2. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving : and shew ourselves glad in him with psalms.
  3. For the Lord is a great God : and a great King above all gods.
  4. In his hand are all the corners of the earth : and the strength of the hills is his also.
  5. The sea is his, and he made it : and his hands prepared the dry land.
  6. O come, let us worship and fall down : and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
  7. For he is the Lord our God : and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
  8. To-day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts : as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness;
  9. When your fathers tempted me : proved me, and saw my works.
  10. Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said : It is a people that do err in their hearts, for they have not known my ways;
  11. Unto whom I sware in my wrath : that they should not enter into my rest.

Psalm 63.

Deus, Deus meus

  1. O GOD, thou art my God : early will I seek thee.
  2. My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh also longeth after thee : in a barren and dry land where no water is.
  3. Thus have I looked for thee in holiness : that I might behold thy power and glory.
  4. For thy loving-kindness is better than the life itself : my lips shall praise thee.
  5. As long as I live will I magnify thee on this manner : and lift up my hands in thy Name.
  6. My soul shall be satisfied, even as it were with marrow and fatness : when my mouth praiseth thee with joyful lips.
  7. Have I not remembered thee in my bed : and thought upon thee when I was waking?
  8. Because thou hast been my helper : therefore under the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
  9. My soul hangeth upon thee : thy right hand hath upholden me.
  10. These also that seek the hurt of my soul : they shall go under the earth.
  11. Let them fall upon the edge of the sword : that they may be a portion for foxes.
  12. But the King shall rejoice in God; all they also that swear by him shall be commended : for the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.

After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

  3. In the day of thy power shall the people offer thee free-will offerings with an holy worship: the dew of thy birth is of the womb of the morning.

In exitu Israel

  1. When Israel came out of Egypt: and the house of Jacob from among the strange people,
  2. Judah was his sanctuary: and Israel his dominion.

  4. The mountains skipped like rams: and the little hills like young sheep.
  5. What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest: and thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
  6. Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams: and ye little hills, like young sheep?
  7. Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord: at the presence of the God of Jacob;
  8. Who turned the hard rock into a standing water: and the flint-stone into a springing well.

  6. By his wounds: you have been healed.

II Corinthians i. 3.

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.
