a suitable hymn, or A Song of the King’s Glory


1The earth is the Lord’s and all that fills it, the compass of the world and all who dwell therein.

2For he has founded it upon the seas and set it firm upon the rivers of the deep.

3‘Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord, or who can rise up in his holy place?’

4‘Those who have clean hands and a pure heart, who have not lifted up their soul to an idol, nor sworn an oath to a lie;

5‘They shall receive a blessing from the Lord, a just reward from the God of their salvation.’

6Such is the company of those who seek him, of those who seek your face, O God of Jacob.

7Lift up your heads, O gates; be lifted up, you everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8‘Who is the King of glory?’ ‘The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord who is mighty in battle.’

9Lift up your heads, O gates; be lifted up, you everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10‘Who is this King of glory?’ ‘The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.’

Psalm 24

AllGlory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.

The Word of God

Psalmody

The appointed psalmody is said.

Psalm 47

Refrain:O sing praises to God, sing praises.

1Clap your hands together, all you peoples; O sing to God with shouts of joy.

2For the Lord Most High is to be feared; he is the great King over all the earth.

3He subdued the peoples under us and the nations under our feet.

4He has chosen our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob, whom he loves. R

5God has gone up with a merry noise, the Lord with the sound of the trumpet.

6O sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.

7For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with all your skill. R

8God reigns over the nations; God has taken his seat upon his holy throne.

9The nobles of the peoples are gathered together with the people of the God of Abraham.

10For the powers of the earth belong to God and he is very highly exalted.



Psalm 147.1-12


1Alleluia. How good it is to make music for our God, how joyful to honour him with praise.

2The Lord builds up Jerusalem and gathers together the outcasts of Israel.

3He heals the brokenhearted and binds up all their wounds. R

4He counts the number of the stars and calls them all by their names.

5Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his wisdom is beyond all telling.

6The Lord lifts up the poor, but casts down the wicked to the ground. R

7Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; make music to our God upon the lyre;

8Who covers the heavens with clouds and prepares rain for the earth;

9Who makes grass to grow upon the mountains and green plants to serve our needs. R

10He gives the beasts their food and the young ravens when they cry.

11He takes no pleasure in the power of a horse, no delight in human strength;

12But the Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their trust in his steadfast love. R


Each psalm or group of psalms may end with


AllGlory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.

Canticle

The following, or another suitable canticle, may be said or sung

Refrain:


AllThe Lord has anointed me and sent me to bring good news to the oppressed.

1The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me.

2He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the broken-hearted,

3To proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;

4To proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour, to comfort all who mourn,

5To give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit,

6That they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.

7For as the earth puts forth her blossom, and as seeds in the garden spring up,

8So shall the Lord God make righteousness and praise blossom before all the nations.

9You shall be called priests of the Lord; they shall speak of you as ministers of our God.

Isaiah 61.1-3, 11, 6a

AllGlory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.

AllThe Lord has anointed me and sent me to bring good news to the oppressed.


Genesis 2:4-9

New International Version

Adam and Eve

4 This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.

5 Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground, 6 but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground. 7 Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

8 Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. 9 The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil

.

A suitable song or chant, or a responsory in this or another form, may follow


Now it is time to awake out of sleep, Allfor the night is far spent and the day is at hand. Now is our salvation nearer than when we first believed, Allfor the night is far spent. Let us therefore cast off the works of darkness and put on the armour of light, Allfor the day is at hand. Put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the flesh, Allfor the night is far spent and the day is at hand.

from Romans 13

3Through his holy prophets God promised of old to save us from our enemies, from the hands of all that hate us,

4To show mercy to our ancestors, and to remember his holy covenant.

5This was the oath God swore to our father Abraham: to set us free from the hands of our enemies,

6Free to worship him without fear, holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.

7And you, child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High, for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

8To give his people knowledge of salvation by the forgiveness of all their sins.

9In the tender compassion of our God the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

10To shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace.
