HYMN. Rector Potens, Verax Deus.
O God of truth, O Lord of might,
Who orderest time and change aright,
Brightening the morn with golden gleams,
Kindling the noon-day's fiery beams :

Quench thou in us the flames of strife,
From passion's heat preserve our life,
Our bodies keep from perils free,
And give our souls true peace in thee.

Almighty Father, hear our cry,

Through Jesus Christ, our Lord most high,
Who with the Holy Ghost and thee
Doth live and reign eternally. Amen.

3 What reward shall be given or done unto thee, thou false tongue: even mighty and sharp arrows, with hot burning coals. 4 Woe is me, that I am constrained to dwell with Mesech and to have : my habitation among the tents of Kedar.

5 My soul hath long dwelt among them : that are enemies unto peace.

6 I labour for peace, but when I speak unto them thereof: they make them ready to battle.

HYMN.

Amen.

In the Lord's atoning grief
Be our rest and sweet relief;
Store we deep in heart's recess
All the shame and bitterness.

Thorns, and cross, and nails, and lance,
Wounds our treasure that enhance,

Vinegar, and gall, and reed,

And the pang his soul that freed.

Crucified, we thee adore,

Thee with all our hearts implore,
Us with saintly bands unite
In the realms of Heavenly light.

Christ, by coward hands betrayed,
Christ for us a captive made,
Christ, upon the bitter tree

Slain for man, be praise to thee.

Antiphon. Blessed are the merciful.
