 4 For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; He is to be feared above all gods.

 5 For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the LORD made the heavens.

Psalm 1:1 How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!

 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.

 3 He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season, And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.

 4 The wicked are not so, But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.

 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

 6 For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the wicked will perish.

 

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.

O Lord Jesus Christ, who at this sixth hour of the day didst hang from the Cross for the redemption of the world, and didst shed Thy precious Blood for the remission of our sins; grant, we humbly beseech Thee, that in all our labors this day, we may have Thy work on the Cross before our eyes and the hope of the resurrection within our hearts; this we ask in thy name, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

 

ALMIGHTY God, who alone gave us the breath of life, and alone can keep alive in us the holy desires thou dost impart; We beseech thee, for thy compassion's sake, to sanctify all our thoughts and endeavors; that we may neither begin an action without a pure intention nor continue it without thy blessing. And grant that, having the eyes of the mind opened to behold things invisible and unseen, we may in heart be inspired by thy wisdom, and in work be upheld by thy strength, and in the end be accepted of thee as thy faithful servants; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.
