Introit Psalm – sung
O sing unto the Lord a new song, alleluia; for the Lord hath done marvelous things alleluia;
in the sight of the nations hath he shewed his righteous judgments, alleluia, alleluia.
With his own right hand, and with his holy arm:
hath he gotten himself the victory.
Hymn 353 (Praise My Soul)
Collect for Purity
O ALMIGHTY God, who alone canst order the unruly wills and affections of sinful men: Grant unto thy people, that they may love the thing which thou commandest, and desire that which thou dost promise; that so, among the sundry and manifold changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed, where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
THE EPISTLE. St James 1. 17.
EVERY good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of his own will he brought us to birth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first-fruits of all his creation. Ye know this, my beloved brethren; and so let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. And therefore lay aside all filthiness and residue of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
Gradual Psalm: 118. 15-18
15 THE voice of joy and health is in the dwellings of the righteous: / the right hand of the LORD bringeth mighty things to pass.
16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: / the right hand of the LORD bringeth mighty things to pass.
17 I shall not die, but live, / and declare the works of the LORD.
18 The LORD hath chastened and corrected me; / but he hath not given me over unto death.
THE GOSPEL. St John 16. 5.
JESUS said unto his disciples, Now I go my way to him that sent me, and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? But, because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. Nevertheless, I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he Is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgement: of sin, because they believe not on me; of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; of judgement, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit, when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall show it unto you.
