Introit Psalm – sung
Blessed be the Holy Trinity, and the undivided Unity: we will praise and glorify him, because he hath shewed his mercy upon us. Let us bless the Father and the Son with the Holy Spirit. Glory be...
Hymn 1 (Nicaea)
Collect for Purity
ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hast given unto us thy servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of the Divine Majesty to worship the Unity: We beseech thee, that this holy faith may evermore be our defence against all adversities; who livest and reignest, one God, world without end. Amen.
THE LESSON. Revelation 4. 1.
AFTER this I saw, and behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne: and he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardius stone: and a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne four and twenty seats; and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and on their heads crowns of gold: and out of the throne proceed lightnings and thunderings and voices. And seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of God; and before the throne as it were a sea of glass, like unto crystal; and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, four living creatures, full of eyes before and behind; the first one like a lion, and the second like a calf, and the third having a face like a man, and the fourth like a flying eagle; and every one of them had six wings; around and within they are full of eyes; and they rest not day or night, saying,
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God the Almighty,
Which was, and which is, and which is to come.
And when those living beings give glory and honour and thanks to him that sitteth upon the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, the four and twenty elders fall down before him that sitteth upon the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
Thou art worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honour and power;
For thou hast created all things,
And for thy pleasure they are, and were created.
THE PENTECOST ANTHEMS
O SING unto the LORD a new song; / for he hath done marvellous things.
Psalm 98. 1.
Christ, being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, / hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
Acts 2. 33.
And because ye are sons, / God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Galatians 4. 6.
We all, with open face / beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
Are changed into the same image from glory to glory, / even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3. 18.
GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, / and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, / world without end. Amen.
THE GOSPEL. St John 3. 1.
THERE was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: the same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these signs that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered,, Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth; so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not; how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man, who is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
