Almighty God, who seest that we have no power
to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly
our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may
to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the
soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
1 Thess. 4. 1
WE beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the
Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk, and to
God, so ye would abound more and more. For ye know what charges
gave you by the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, even
sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication; that every one
of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and
not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not

and Sidon. And behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same
and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of
my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her
not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send
her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent
but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and
worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said,
It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
And she said, Truth, Lord; yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall
from their masters' table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her,
O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt.
And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
UNTO thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul; / my
have put my trust in thee

triumph over me.
3 For all they that hope in thee shall not be
/ but such as transgress without a cause shall be put to
4 Show me thy ways, O Lord, / and teach me thy

art the God of my salvation; in thee hath been my hope all the day
Ant. Call to remembrance, O Lord,
mercies, / and thy loving-kindnesses, which have been ever of

but according to thy mercy think thou upon me, O Lord, for thy
Glory be. Repeat Antiphon.

UNTO thee lift I up mine eyes, / O thou that
in the heavens.
2 Behold, even as the eyes of servants look
hand of their masters, / and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of
3 Even so our eyes wait upon the Lord Our God,
he have mercy upon us.
4 Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon
us; / for
we are utterly despised.
5 Our soul is filled with the scornful reproof
wealthy, / and with the despitefulness of the proud.
