The Fourth Sunday after Trinity.
MY SOUL cleaveth to the dust * O quicken thou me, according to thy word.
26. I have acknowledged my ways, and thou heardest me * O teach me thy statutes.
27. Make me to understand the way of thy commandments * and so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
28. My soul melteth away for very heaviness * comfort thou me according unto thy word.
29. Take from me the way of lying * and cause thou me to make much of thy law.
30. I have chosen the way of truth * and thy judgements have I laid before me.
31. I have stuck unto thy testimonies * O Lord, confound me not.
32. I will run the way of thy commandments * when thou hast set my heart at liberty.
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.
O GOD, the protector of all that trust in thee, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy; Increase and multiply upon us thy mercy; that, thou being our ruler and guide, we may so pass through things temporal, that we finally lose not the things eternal: Grant this, O heavenly Father, for Jesus Christ’s sake our Lord. Amen.
