Behold, I was shapen in wickedness: and in sin hath my mo ther conceived me.
But lo, thou requirest truth in the inward parts and shalt make me to understand wisdom secretly.
Thou shalt purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: thou shalt wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Thou shalt make me hear of joy and gladness: that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
Turn thy face away from my sins and put out all my misdeeds.
Make me a clean heart, O God and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from thy presence: and take not thy holy Spirit from me.
O give me the comfort of thy help again and stablish me with thy free Spirit.
Then shall I teach thy ways unto the wicked: and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, thou that art the God of my health: and my tongue shall sing of thy righteous.
Thou shalt open my lips, O Lord; and my mouth shall shew thy praise.
For thou desirest no sacrifice, else would I give it thee: but thou delightest not in burnt-offerings.
The sacrifice of God is a troubled spirit: a broken and contrite heart, O God, shalt thou not despise.
O be favourable and gracious unto Sion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifice of righteousness, with the burnt-offerings and oblations: then shall they offer young bullocks upon thine altar.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;
Answer. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.
Lord, have mercy upon us.
Christ, have mercy upon us.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us trom evil. Amen.
Minister. O Lord, save thy servants;
Answer. And evermore mightily defend them.
Minister. Help us, O God our Saviour.
Answer. And for the glory of thy Name deliver us; be merci
ful to us sinners, for thy Name's sake.
Minister. O Lord, hear our prayer.
Minister. Let us pray.
LORD, we beseech thee, mercifully hear our prayers, and spare all those who confess their sins unto thee; that they, whose consciences by sin are accused, by thy merciful pardon may be absolved; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
MOST mighty God, and merciful Father, who hast compassion upon all men, and hatest nothing that thou hast made; who wouldest not the death of a sinner, but that he should rather turn from his sin, and be saved; Mercifully for give us our trespasses; receive and comfort us, who are grieved and wearied with the burden of our sins. Thy property is always to have mercy; to thee only it appertaineth to forgive sins. Spare us therefore, good Lord, spare thy people, whom thou hast redeemed; enter not into judgement with thy servants, who are vile earth, and miserable sinners; but so turn thine anger from us, who meekly acknowledge our vileness, and truly repent us of our faults, and so make haste to help us in this world, that we may ever live with thee in the world to come; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
¶ Then shall the people say this that followeth, after the Minister. TURN thou us, O good Lord, and so shall we be turned. Be favourable, O Lord, Be favourable to thy people, Who turn to thee in weeping, fasting, and praying. For thou art a mer ciful God, Full of compassion, Long-suffering, and of great pity. Thou sparest when we deserve punishment, And in thy wrath thinkest upon mercy. Spare thy people good Lord, spare them, And let not thine heritage be brought to confusion. Hear us, O Lord, for thy mercy is great, And after the multitude of thy mercies look upon us; Through the merits and mediation of thy blessed Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Then the Minister alone shall say,
THE Lord bless us, and keep us; the Lord lift up the light of his countenance upon us, and give us peace, now and for
PSALMS OF DAVID.
THE FIRST DAY.
PSALM 1. Beatus vir, qui non abiit &c. LESSED is the man that hath not walked in the
nor stood in the way of
sinners and hath not sat in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord and in his law will he exercise himself day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the waterside that will bring forth his fruit in due season.
4 His leaf also shall not wither and look, whatsoever he doeth, it shall prosper.
5 As for the ungodly, it is not so with them: but they are like the chaff, which the wind scattereth away from the face of the earth.
6 Therefore the ungodly shall not be able to stand in the judgement: neither the sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
7 But the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: and the way of the ungodly shall perish.
PSALM 2. Quare fremuerunt gentes?
HY do the heathen so furiously rage together:
W people a
2 The kings of the earth stand up, and the rulers take counsel together: against the Lord, and against his Anointed.
3 Let us break their bonds asunder: and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh them to scorn: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6 Yet have I set my King: upon my holy hill of Sion.
7 I will preach the law, whereof the Lord hath said unto me: Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
8 Desire of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance and the utmost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt bruise them with a rod of iron : and break them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be learned, ye that are judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord in fear
and rejoice unto him
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and so ye perish from the right way if his wrath be kindled, (yea, but a little,) blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
PSALM 3. Domine, quid multiplicati?
LORD; how are they increased that trouble me : against me.
many are they that
2 Many one there be that say of my soul: There is no help for him in his God.
3 But thou, O Lord, art my defender: thou art my worship, and the lifter up of my head.
4 I did call upon the Lord with my voice: and he heard me out of his holy hill.
5 I laid me down and slept, and rose up again: for the Lord sustained me.
6 I will not be afraid for ten thousands of the people: that have set themselves against me round about. 7 Up, Lord, and help me, O my God: for thou smit est all mine enemies upon the cheek-bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8 Salvation belongeth unto the Lord: and thy blessing is upon thy people.
PSALM 4. Cum invocarem.
[EAR me when I call, O God of my righteous
set me at liberty
trouble; have mercy upon me, and hearken unto my prayer.
20 ye sons of men, how long will ye blaspheme mine honour and have such pleasure in vanity, and seek after leasing?
3 Know this also, that the Lord hath chosen to him. self the man that is godly: when 1 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 shew us any good?
7 Lord, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
8 Thou hast put gladness in my heart: since the time that their corn, and wine, and oil, increased.
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 5. Verba mea auribus.
PONDER my words, O Lord : consider my medi
2 O hearken thou unto the voice of my calling, my King, and my God for unto thee will I make my prayer.
3 My voice shalt thou hear betimes, O Lord: early in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
4 For thou art the God that hast no pleasure in wickedness: neither shall any evil dwell with thee.
5 Such as be foolish shall not stand in thy sight: for thou hatest all them that work vanity.
6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the Lord will abhor both the blood-thirsty and deceitful
7 But as for me, I will come into thine house, even upon the multitude of thy mercy and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
8 Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness, because of mine enemies: make thy way plain before my face.
9 For there is no faithfulness in his mouth; their inward parts are very wickedness.
10 Their throat is an open sepulchre : they flatter with their tongue.
11 Destroy thou them, O God; let them perish through their own imaginations: cast them out in the multitude of their ungodliness; for they have rebelled against thee.
12 And let all them that put their trust in thee rejoice they shall ever be giving of thanks, because thou defendest them; they that love thy Name shall be joyful in thee;
13 For thou, Lord, wilt give thy blessing unto the righteous: and with thy favourable kindness wilt thou defend him as with a shield.
