6 He taketh up the simple out of the dust and lifteth the poor out of the mire; 7 That he may set him with the princes: even with the princes of his people.

8 He maketh the barren woman to keep house and to be a joyful mother of children.


Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.

PSALM CXXXV. Laudate Nomen.

PRAISE the Lord, laud ye the Name of the Lord praise it, O ye servants of

the Lord:

2 Ye that stand in the house of the Lord: in the courts of the house of our God.

3 O praise the Lord, for the Lord is gracious: O sing praises unto his Name, for it is lovely.

4 For why? the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself : and Israel for his own possession.


5 For I know that the Lord is great and that our Lord is above all gods.

6 Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth: and in the sea, and in all deep places.


7 He bringeth forth the clouds from the ends of the world and sendeth forth lightnings with the rain, bringing the winds out of his treasures.

8 He smote the first-born of Egypt: both of man and beast.

9 He hath sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O thou land of Egypt: upon Pharaoh, and all his servants.

10 He smote divers nations and slew mighty kings;

11 Sehon king of the Amorites, and Og the king of Basan: and all the kingdoms of Canaan;

12 And gave their land to be an heritage : even an heritage unto Israel his people.

13 Thy Name, O Lord, endureth for ever: so doth thy memorial, O Lord, from one generation to another.

14 For the Lord will avenge his people: and be gracious unto his servants.

15 As for the images of the heathen, they are but silver and gold: the work of men's hands.

16 They have mouths, and speak not : eyes have they, but they see not.

17 They have ears, and yet they hear not neither is there any breath in their mouths.


18 They that make them are like unto them and so are all they that put their trust in them.


19 Praise the Lord, ye house of Israel: praise the Lord, ye house of Aaron.

20 Praise the Lord, ye house of Levi: ye that fear the Lord, praise the Lord.

21 Praised be the Lord out of Sion: who dwelleth at Jerusalem.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end.


PSALM CXXXVIII. Confitebor tibi.

I WILL give thanks unto thee, O Lord,

with my whole heart even before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.

2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy Name, because of thy lovingkindness and truth: for thou hast magnified thy Name, and thy Word, above all things.

3 When I called upon thee, thou heardest me and enduedst my soul with much strength.

4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord: for they have heard the words of thy mouth.


5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord that great is the glory of the Lord. 6 For though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly as for the proud, he beholdeth them afar off.

7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, yet shalt thou refresh me: thou shalt stretch forth thy hand upon the furiousness of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save më.

8 The Lord shall make good his lovingkindness toward me: yea, thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever; despise not then the works of thine own hands.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.

Antiphon. Being justified by faith, we have peace with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ: neither is there any condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit.

THE CHAPTER. Isaiah lxv., lv.


EJOICE ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her; rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her: that ye may drink and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory. Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money, come buy wine and milk without money and without price.

B. Thanks be to God.

HYMN. Lucis creator optime.

Father of Lights, by whom each day

Is kindled out of night;

Who, when the Heavens were made, didst lay
Their rudiments in light:

Thou who didst bind and blend in one
The glistening morn and evening pale,
Hear thou our prayer when light is gone
And lawlessness and strife prevail.

Hear, lest the whelming weight of crime
Wreck us with life in view;

Lest thoughts and schemes of sense and time
Earn us a sinner's due.

So may we knock at Heaven's bright door,
And strive the prize of life to win,
Continually and evermore

Guarded without and pure within.

This grace on thy redeemed confer,
Father, co-equal Son,

And Holy Ghost the Comforter,
Eternal Three in One. Amen.

Y. Make me a clean heart, O God.
B. And renew a right spirit within me.

Antiphon. If God be for us, who can be against us?

Magnificat. St. Luke i.

MY soul doth magnify the Lord: and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden.


For behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

For he that is mighty hath magnified me: and holy is his Name.

And his mercy is on them that fear him : throughout all generations.

He hath showed strength with his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

He hath put down the mighty from their seat and hath exalted the humble and meek. He hath filled the hungry with good and the rich he hath sent empty




He remembering his mercy hath holpen
