Second Week Sunday

Sunday EP 1 (Saturday Night)

Psalm 119 (XIV. Nun.)

Lucerna pedibus meis.

  1. THY word is a lantern unto my feet: and a light unto my paths.
  2. I have sworn, and am stedfastly purposed: to keep thy righteous judgments.
  3. I am troubled above measure: quicken me, O LORD, according to thy word.
  4. Let the free-will offerings of my mouth please thee, O LORD: and teach me thy judgments.
  5. My soul is alway in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.
  6. The ungodly have laid a snare for me: but yet I swerved not from thy commandments.
  7. Thy testimonies have I claimed as mine heritage for ever: and why? they are the very joy of my heart.
  8. I have applied my heart to fulfil thy statutes alway: even unto the end.

Psalms 16.

Conserva me, Domine.

  1. Preserve me, O God: for in thee have I put my trust.
  2. O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD: Thou art my God; I have no good like unto thee.
  3. All my delight is upon the saints that are in the earth: and upon such as excel in virtue.
  4. But they that run after another god: shall have great trouble.
  5. Their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer: neither make mention of their names within my lips.
  6. The LORD himself is the portion of mine inheritance, and of my cup: thou shalt maintain my lot.
  7. The lot is fallen unto me in a fair ground: yea, I have a goodly heritage.
  8. I will thank the LORD for giving me warning: my reins also chasten me in the night season.
  9. I have set the LORD alway before me: for he is on my right hand, therefore I shall not fall.
  10. Wherefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
  11. For why? thou shalt not leave my soul in hell: neither shalt thou suffer thy Holy One to see corruption.
  12. Thou shalt show me the path of life: in thy presence is the fulness of joy: and at thy right hand there is pleasure for evermore.

Philippians ii. 6

Canticle

  1. Though, being in the form of God: Jesus 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,
  4. and became obedient unto death: even the death of the cross.
  5. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him: and given him a name which is above every name:
  6. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow: of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
  7. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord: to the glory of God the Father.

Colossians i. 2b.

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints, For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world.

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.

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.

  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.

And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

  4. That we should be saved from our enemies: and from the hand of all that hate us.
  5. To perform the mercy promised to our forefathers: and to remember his holy Covenant;

  7. That we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies: might serve him without fear;
  8. In holiness and righteousness before him: all the days of our life.
