Fifth Sunday in Lent (commonly called Passion Sunday) - 2018

The Fifth Sunday in Lent.
Lamentations 3.21-33
Hoc recolens in corde meo
This I recall to my mind, * therefore have I hope.
It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, * because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: * great is thy faithfulness.
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; * therefore will I hope in him.
The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, * to the soul that seeketh him.
It is good that a man should both hope * and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
It is good for a man * that he bear the yoke in his youth.
He sitteth alone and keepeth silence, * because he hath borne it upon him.
He putteth his mouth in the dust; * if so be there may be hope.
He giveth his cheek to him that smiteth him: * he is filled full with reproach.
For the Lord will not * cast off for ever:
But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion * according to the multitude of his mercies.
For he doth not afflict willingly * nor grieve the children of men.
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 Collect.
WE beseech thee, Almighty God, mercifully to look upon thy people; that by thy great goodness they may be governed and preserved evermore, both in body and soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

{The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.}

The Collect.
ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent: Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
