O God, the King of glory, who hast exalted
Son Jesus Christ with great triumph unto thy kingdom in heaven: We
thee leave us not comfortless; but send to us thine Holy Ghost to
us, and exalt us unto the same place whither our Saviour Christ is gone
before, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God,
world without end. Amen.
1 S. Peter 4. 7
THE end of all things is at hand; be ye
and watch unto prayer. And above all things have fervent charity
among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
Use hospitality one to another without grudging. As every man
received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good
of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as
the oracles of God: if any man minister, let him do it as of the
which God giveth; that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus
Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever.
S. John 15. 26.

been with me from the beginning. These things have I spoken unto
you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of
synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think
that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto
because they have not known the Father, nor me. But these things
have I told you, that, when the time shall come, ye may remember that I
told you of them.

3 Though an host of men were laid against me,
not my heart be afraid; / and though there rose up war against me, yet

4 One thing have I desired of the Lord, which I
require: / even that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days
of my life, to behold the fair beauty of the Lord, and to visit his
