Minister. O God, make speed to save us.

¶ The following psalm, or some other psalm(s), shall be sung or said.

Levavi oculos. Psalm 121

I WILL lift up mine eyes unto the hills; * from whence
cometh my help?
My help cometh even from the LORD, * who hath made
heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; * and he that
keepeth thee will not sleep.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel * shall neither slumber
nor sleep.
The LORD himself is thy keeper; * the LORD is thy
defence upon thy right hand;
So that the sun shall not burn thee by day, * neither the
moon by night.
The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil; * yea, it is
even he that shall keep thy soul.
The LORD shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming
in, * from this time forth for evermore.

¶ Here shall be sung or said the Gloria Patri.

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.

Lord, have mercy upon us.
Christ, have mercy upon us.
Lord, have mercy upon us.

OUR Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, On earth as it
is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us
our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for
ever and ever. Amen.

Virgin Mary, so by his cross and passion we may be brought
unto the glory of the resurrection, Through the same Christ
our Lord. Amen.

(St. John 12:32)

BLESSED Saviour, who at this hour didst hang upon the
cross stretching out thy loving arms: Grant that all
mankind may look unto thee and be saved; who livest and

world without end. Amen.

Peter went up upon the house-top to pray, about the sixth hour.
(Acts 10:9)

FATHER of mercies, who to thine Apostle Saint Peter didst
reveal in three-fold vision thy boundless compassion: Forgive, we pray thee, our unbelief, and so enlarge our hearts, and enkindle our zeal, that we may fervently desire the salvation of all people, and with more ready diligence labour in the extension of thy kingdom; for his sake, who gave himself for the life of the world, thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

At mid-day, O king, I saw a light above the brightness of the
(Acts 26:13)

ALMIGHTY Saviour, who at mid-day didst call thy servant
Saint Paul to be an Apostle to the Gentiles: We beseech
thee to illumine the world with the radiance of thy glory,
that all nations may come and worship thee; who art, with
the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without
end. Amen.
