Quis credidit auditui nostro
Who hath believed our report? * and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, *and as a root out of a dry ground:
He hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, * there is no beauty that we should desire him.
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, * and acquainted with grief:
And we hid as it were our faces from him; *he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: * yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, * he was bruised for our iniquities:
The chastisement of our peace was upon him; * and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; * we have turned every one to his own way;
And the LORD hath laid on him * the iniquity of us all.
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.
ALMIGHTY God, we beseech thee graciously to behold this thy family, for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was contented to be betrayed, and given up into the hands of wicked men, and to suffer death upon the cross, who now liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, by whose Spirit the whole body of the Church is governed and sanctified; Receive our supplications and prayers, which we offer before thee for all estates of men in thy holy Church, that every member of the same, in his vocation and ministry may truly and godly serve thee; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
O MERCIFUL God, who hast made all men, and hatest nothing that thou hast made, nor wouldest the death of a sinner, but rather that he should be converted and live; Have mercy upon all Jews, Turks, Infidels, and Hereticks, and take from them all ignorance, hardness of heart, and contempt of thy Word; and so fetch them home, blessed Lord, to thy flock, that they may be saved among the remnant of the true Israelites, and be made one fold under one shepherd, Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

GRANT, O Lord, that as we are baptized into the death of thy blessed Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, so by continual mortifying our corrupt affections we may be buried with him : and that through the grave, and gate of death, we may pass to our joyful resurrection ; for his merits, who died, and was buried, and rose again for us, thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
