PSALM XIII. Usque quo, Domine ? TOW long wilt thou forget me, O Lord, for ever how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?

2 How long shall I seek counsel in my soul, and be so vexed in my heart: how long shall mine enemies triumph over me?

3 Consider, and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, that I sleep not in death.

4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed

:

against him for if I be cast down, they that trouble me will rejoice at it.

5 But my trust is in thy mercy: and my heart is joyful in thy salvation.

6 I will sing of the Lord, because he hath dealt so lovingly with me: yea, I will praise the Name of the Lord most Highest.

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 XLIII. Judica me, Deus.

GIVE

IVE sentence with me, O God, and defend my cause against the ungodly people : O deliver me from the deceitful and wicked man.

2 For thou art the God of my strength, why hast thou put me from thee: and why go I so heavily, while the enemy oppresseth

me?

3 O send out thy light and thy truth, that they may lead me and bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy dwelling.

4 And that I may go unto the altar of God, even unto the God of my joy and gladness and upon the harp will I give thanks unto thee, O God, my God.

5 Why art thou so heavy, O my soul: and why art thou so disquieted within me ?

6 O put thy trust in God: for I will yet give him thanks, which is the help of my countenance, and my God.

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.

Nor phantoms of the night appear;

Our ghostly enemy restrain,

Lest aught of sin our bodies stain.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord most High,

Who with the Holy Ghost and thee,

Doth live and reign eternally. Amen.

For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared: before the face of all people;

To be a light to lighten the Gentiles : and to be the glory of thy people Israel.

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

now,

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

Antiphon. Grant us, O Lord, thy light; that we being delivered from the darkness of our hearts, may come to the very light which is Christ.

B. And let my cry come unto thee.

Let us pray.

LIGHTEN our darkness, we beseech thee,

Lord; and by thy great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night, for the love of thy only Son our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

Bless we the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
