FOR CHRISTMAS DAY.
To be used at Morning
GLORY be to God in the highest, on earth peace, good will toward men.
Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound; they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance;
Through the tender mercies of our God, whereby the day spring from on high hath visited us;
To give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide our feet in the way of peace.
How beautiful on the
mountains are the feet of him who bringeth good tidings; who publisheth peace, who bringeth good tidings of good, who publisheth salvation, who saith unto Sion, Thy God reigneth.
There is sprung up a light for the righteous, and joyful gladness for such as are true of heart.
Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
Sing unto the Lord, and praise his name; be telling of his salvation from day to day.
Let all those who seek him be joyful and glad in him, and let all such as love his salvation say always, The Lord be praised.
MY heart is inditing joyful words; I speak of the things concerning the King; my tongue is as the pen of a ready scribe.
Thou art the fairest of the children of men; full of grace are thy lips; for God hath blessed thee for
Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O thou Mighty One, with thy glory and thy majesty.
And in thy majesty ride prosperously, for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
Thy throne, O God, endureth for ever; the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.
Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; wherefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
I will make thy name to be remembered to all generations; so that the people shall praise thee for ever and ever.
LORD, thou art become gracious unto thy land; thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.
Thou hast forgiven the offence of thy people, and covered all their sins.
Thou hast taken away all thy displeasure, and turned thyself from thy wrathful indignation.
Turn us then, O God our Saviour, and let thine anger cease from us.
Wilt thou be displeased at us for ever? and wilt thou stretch out thy wrath from one generation to another?
Wilt thou not turn again and quicken us, that thy people may rejoice in thee?
Show us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.
I will hear what God the Lord will speak; for he will speak peace to his people and his saints; only let them not return to their folly again.
For his salvation is nigh those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.
Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
Truth shall flourish out
of the earth; and righteousness hath looked down from heaven.
Yea, the Lord shall show his loving kindness; and our land shall yield her in
Righteousness shall go before him; and shall keep his path continually. Now unto the King eternal, &c.
Be honour and glory, &c..
PSALM 110. THE Lord said unto my lord, Sit thou on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
The Lord shall send the sceptre of thy power out of Sion; rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
In the day of thy power shall the people offer thee free will offerings with an holy worship; the dew of thy birth is of the womb of the morning.
The Lord sware, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedeck.
The Lord at thy right hand shall destroy even kings in the day of his wrath.
He shall judge among the nations; he shall fill the places with the dead bodies, and shall wound the heads over many countries.
He shall drink of the brook in the way, and lift up his head on high.
LORD, remember David, and all his troubles;
How he sware unto the Lord, and vowed a vow unto the Almighty God of Jacob;
I will not come within the tabernacle of mine house, nor climb up into my bed;
I will not suffer mine eyes to sleep, nor mine eyelids to slumber;
Until I find out a place for the temple of the Lord, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.
We will go into his tabernacle, we will worship before his footstool.
Arise, O Lord, into thy resting place, thou, and the ark of thy strength.
Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints sing with joyfulness.
For thy servant David's
