The Third Sunday after the Epiphany.
O SING unto the Lord a new song; * for he hath done marvellous things.
With his own right hand, and with his holy arm, * hath he gotten himself the victory.
The Lord declared his salvation; * his righteousness hath he openly showed in the sight of the heathen.
He hath remembered his mercy and truth toward the house of Israel; * and all the ends of the world have seen the salvation of our God.
Show yourselves joyful unto the Lord, all ye lands; * sing, rejoice, and give thanks.
Praise the Lord upon the harp; * sing to the harp with a psalm of thanksgiving.
With trumpets also and shawms, * O show yourselves joyful before the Lord, the King.
Let the sea make a noise, and all that therein is; * the round world, and they that dwell therein. Let the floods clap their hands, and let the hills be joyful together before the Lord; * for he cometh to judge the earth.
With righteousness shall he judge the world, * and the peoples with equity.
ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, mercifully look upon our infirmities, and in all our dangers and necessities stretch forth thy right hand to help and defend us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
