Twenty-Fifth Sunday after Trinity - 2018


The Twenty-fifth Sunday after Trinity.
(from The Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany)
Habakkuk 3.2-11
Domine audivi
O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: * O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years,
In the midst of the years make known; * in wrath remember mercy.
God came from Teman, * and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah.
His glory covered the heavens, * and the earth was full of his praise.
And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: * and there was the hiding of his power.
Before him went the pestilence, * and burning coals went forth at his feet.
He stood, and measured the earth: * he beheld, and drove asunder the nations;
And the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: * his ways are everlasting.
I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction: * and the curtains of the land of Midian did tremble.
Was the LORD displeased against the rivers? * was thine anger against the rivers? 
Was thy wrath against the sea, * that thou didst ride upon thine horses and thy chariots of salvation?
Thy bow was made quite naked, * according to the oaths of the tribes, even thy word. Selah. Thou didst cleave the earth with rivers. * The mountains saw thee, and they trembled:
The overflowing of the water passed by: * the deep uttered his voice, and lifted up his hands on high.
The sun and moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went, * and at the shining of thy glittering spear.
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.
O GOD, whose blessed Son was manifested that he might destroy the works of the devil, and make us the sons of God, and heirs of eternal life; Grant us, we beseech thee, that, having this hope, we may purify ourselves, even as he is pure; that, when he shall appear again with power and great glory, we may be made like unto him in his eternal and glorious kingdom; where with thee, O Father, and thee, O Holy Ghost, he liveth and reigneth, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Twenty-Fourth Sunday after Trinity - 2018



The Twenty-fourth Sunday after Trinity.
Jeremiah 31.10-14
Audite verbum Domini
Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, * and declare it in the isles afar off, and say,
He that scattered Israel will gather him, * and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.
For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, * and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he.
Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, * and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD,
For wheat, and for wine, and for oil, * and for the young of the flock and of the herd:
And their soul shall be as a watered garden; * and they shall not sorrow any more at all.
Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, * both young men and old together:
For I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, * and make them rejoice from their sorrow.
And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, * and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the LORD.
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.
O LORD, we beseech thee, absolve thy people from their offences; that through thy bountiful goodness we may all be delivered from the bands of those sins, which by our frailty we have committed: Grant this, O heavenly Father, for Jesus Christ’s sake, our blessed Lord and Saviour. Amen.

1 Chronicles 29.10-13
Benedictus es, Domine Deus Israel
Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, * for ever and ever.
Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: * for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine;
Thine is the kingdom, O LORD, * and thou art exalted as head above all.
Both riches and honour come of thee, * and thou reignest over all;
And in thine hand is power and might; *and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, * and praise thy glorious name.
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.
