Almighty God, who hast given thine only Son to
us both a sacrifice for sin, and also an example of godly life: Give us
grace that we may always most thankfully receive that his inestimable
and also daily endeavour ourselves to follow the blessed steps of his
holy life; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
1 S. Peter 2. 19.
THIS is thank-worthy, if a man for conscience
God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For what glory is it, if,
when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but
when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently; this is
with God. For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also
for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: who did
no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: who, when he was reviled,
reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed
to him that judgeth righteously: who his own self bare our sins in his
own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto
by whose stripes ye were healed. For ye were as sheep going
but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
S. John 10.11
JESUS said, I am the good shepherd: the good
giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and
the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and
the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the
The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the
sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of
mine. As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I
lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are
not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice;
and there shall be one flock, and one shepherd.
REJOICE in the Lord, O ye righteous; / for it
well the just to be thankful.
2 Praise the Lord with harp: / sing praises
with the lute, and instrument of ten strings.
3 Sing unto the Lord a new song: / sing praises
with a good courage.

Ant. By the word of the Lord were the
made, / and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together,
were in a bottle, / and layeth up the deep, as in a treasure-house.
8 Let all the earth fear the Lord; / stand in
him, all ye that dwell in the world.
9 For he spake, and it was done: / he
it stood fast.
Glory be. Repeat Antiphon.
*O GOD, thou art my God; / early will I seek

thee, / in a barren and dry land where no water is.
3 Thus have I looked for thee in the sanctuary,
I might behold thy power and glory.
4 For thy loving-kindness is better than the
/ my lips shall praise thee.
* During Eastertide, Alleluia is said
the psalm portion, and once after the last verse. It may be said
after each verse.
