Easter-Pentecost Terce

V. In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

 R. Amen.


V. O Lord, open thou our lips.

 R. And our mouth shall show forth thy praise.


V. Receive, O Lord, our prayers this hour

R. The offering to you of this day. Amen


Let us humbly confess our sins unto Almighty God


Most Gracious and Loving God,

We confess that we have sinned against thee

and done what is evil in thy sight;

That we have turned from thy ways

both in things done and left undone;

A period of silence for reflection may follow. 

Wherefore we beseech thee O Lord,

Have mercy upon us; forgive us all our sins.

Cast us not away from thy presence

But cleanse us with thy Spirit;

That we may walk in newness of life;

And this we ask in the Name of thy Son

Our savior, Jesus Christ. Amen


O Lord, we beseech thee, mercifully hear our prayers, and grant us Absolution and Remission of all our sins, true repentance; amendment of life, and the grace and consolation of Thy Holy Spirit. Amen.


V. O God, make speed to save us.

R. O Lord, make haste to help us.


V. GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Psalm 86:11 Teach me Thy way, O LORD; I will walk in Thy truth; Unite my heart to fear Thy name.

 12 I will give thanks to Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and will glorify Thy name forever.

 13 For Thy lovingkindness toward me is great, and Thou hast delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

 14 O God, arrogant men have risen up against me, and a band of violent men have sought my life. They have not set Thee before them.

 15 But Thou, O Lord, art a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.

 16 Turn to me, and be gracious to me; Oh grant Thy strength to Thy servant, And save the son of Thy handmaid.

 17 Show me a sign for good, that those who hate me may see it, and be ashamed, because Thou, O LORD, hast helped me and comforted me.


V. GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

 R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.




Psalm 118:16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted; The right hand of the LORD does valiantly.

 17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.

 18 The LORD has chastened me severely; but He has not given me over to death.

 19 Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will go through them, and I will praise the LORD.

 20 This is the gate of the LORD, through which the righteous shall enter.

 21 I will praise You, for You have answered me, and have become my salvation.

 22 The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.

 23 This was the LORD'S doing; It is marvelous in our eyes.

 24 This is the day the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

 25 Save now, I pray, O LORD; O LORD, I pray, send now prosperity.

 26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD!


V. GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

 R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.




Psalm 71:14 But as for me, I will hope continually, and will praise Thee yet more and more.

 15 My mouth shall tell of Thy righteousness, and of Thy salvation all day long; For I do not know the sum of them.

 16 I will come with the mighty deeds of the Lord God; I will make mention of Thy righteousness, Thine alone.

 17 O God, Thou hast taught me from my youth; and I still declare Thy wondrous deeds.

 18 And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me until I declare Thy strength to this generation, Thy power to all who are to come.

 19 For Thy righteousness, O God, reaches to the heavens, Thou who hast done great things; O God, who is like Thee?


V. GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

 R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
