PSALM VIII.

O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! whose glory reaches above the heavens.

Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained praise to silence thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers; the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

What is man, that thou art mindful of him ? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

Yet thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor.

Thou inadest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;

The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.

O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only wise God,

Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, forever and ever.

Amen.

The Second War.

MORNING PRAYER.

PSALM IX.

I will praise, O thee Lord, with my whole heart; I will show forth all thy marvellous works.

I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name,

O thou Most High. For thou defendest my right and my cause; thou sittest on the throne a righteous judge.

For the Lord shall endure forever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.

And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.

The Lord also is a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.

And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

Sing praises to the Lord, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.

An avenger of blood, be remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.

Have mercy upon me, O Lord: consider my trouble, thou that listest me up from the gates of death:

That I may show forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvaThe Lord is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.

For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the patient hopes of the poor shall not perish forever.

Arise, O Lord; let not man prevail; let the people be judged in thy sight.

Put them in fear, O Lord: that the nations may know themselves to be but men.

PSALM XI.

The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord's throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try the children of men.

For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.

PSALM XII.

HELP Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.

They speak falsehood every one with his neighbor: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:

Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail ; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?

For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that despiseth him.

The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver refined in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever.

PSALM XIII.

How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord ? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?

How long shall I have anxiety in my soul, and sorrow in my heart all the day?

But I trust in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only wise God,

Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, forever and ever. Amen.

The Second Day.

EVENING PRAYER.

PSALM XV.

LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle ? who shall dwell upon thy holy hill?

He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth from his heart.

He that slandereth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbor, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbor.

In whose eyes the worthless are contemptible; but he honoreth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

PSALM XVI.

PRESERVE me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.

I have said to the Lord, Thou art my Lord; I have no happiness but in thee!

The holy in the earth, and the excellent, in them is all my delight.

The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly beritage.

I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel : my heart also admonishes me in the night seasons.

I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

Therefore my heart is glad, and my spirit rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

For thou wilt not leave my soul in the grave; neither wilt thou suffer thy beloved to see corruption.

Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
