The Eighth Sunday after Trinity.
Deuteronomy 32.1-4, 37-40
Audite cæli quæ loquor
Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; * and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
My doctrine shall drop as the rain, * my speech shall distil as the dew,
As the small rain upon the tender herb, * and as the showers upon the grass:
Because I will publish the name of the LORD: * ascribe ye greatness unto our God.
He is the Rock, his work is perfect: * for all his ways are judgment:
A God of truth and without iniquity, * just and right is he.
And the LORD shall say, * “Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,
Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, * and drank the wine of their drink offerings?
Let them rise up and help you, * and be your protection.
See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: * I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
For I lift up my hand to heaven, * and say, I live for ever.”
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, whose never-failing providence ordereth all things both in heaven and earth; We humbly beseech thee to put away from us all hurtful things, and to give us those things which be profitable for us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
