Welcome and Opening Hymn
Almighty and most merciful Father, we have erred and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep, we have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts, we have offended against thy holy laws, we have left undone those things which we ought to have done, and we have done those things which we ought not to have done, and there is no health in us: But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us miserable offenders; spare thou them, O God, which confess their faults, restore thou them that are penitent, according to thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesus our Lord; and grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake, that we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life, to the glory of thy holy Name.
Leader: O Lord, open thou lips
All: and our mouth shall shew forth thy praise. Leader: O God, make speed to save us.
All: O Lord, make haste to help us.
Leader: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;
All: as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
Leader: Praise ye the Lord.
All: The Lord’s name be praised.
My soul doth magnify the Lord:
any 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 might hath magnified me:
and holy in 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 that put down the mighty from their seat:
and hath exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things:
and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel:
as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his see for ever.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost; as it was
in the beginning, is now and shall ever be: world without end.
The Old Testament Reading
This is the word of the Lord
Thanks be to God.
The Nunc Dimittus
Lord, now wettest thou thy servant depart in peace:
according to thy word.
For mine eyes have seen: thy salvation;
While 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 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.
The New Testament Reading
This is the Word of the Lord
Thanks be to God
I believe in God the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth: and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen
Leader: The Lord be with you
All: And with thy spirit.
