And there is no health in us.

But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us;

Forgive us all our sins,

And grant that we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life;

To the glory of thy holy Name. Amen.

A Selection from the Psalter or

One or more of the Psalms below is read


Psalm 63:1 O God, Thou art my God; early I shall seek Thee; My soul thirsts for Thee, my flesh yearns for Thee, In a dry and weary land where there is no water.

 2 Thus I have beheld Thee in the sanctuary, to see Thy power and Thy glory.

 3 Because Thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips will praise Thee.

 4 So I will bless Thee as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in Thy name.

 5 My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips.

 6 When I remember Thee on my bed, I meditate on Thee in the early morning watches,

 7 For Thou hast been my help, and in the shadow of Thy wings I sing for joy.

 8 My soul clings to Thee; Thy right hand upholds me.

 9 But those who seek my life, to destroy it, will go into the depths of the earth.

 10 They will be delivered over to the power of the sword; They will be a prey for foxes.

 11 But the king will rejoice in God; Everyone who swears by Him will glory, For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.


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 100:1 Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth.

 2 Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing.

 3 Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

 4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving, And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name.

 5 For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting, And His faithfulness to all generations.


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 118:1 Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

 2 Oh let Israel say, "His lovingkindness is everlasting."

 3 Oh let the house of Aaron say, "His lovingkindness is everlasting."

 4 Oh let those who fear the LORD say, "His lovingkindness is everlasting."

 5 From my distress I called upon the LORD; The LORD answered me and set me in a large place.

 6 The LORD is for me; I will not fear; What can man do to me?

 7 The LORD is for me among those who help me; Therefore I shall look with satisfaction on those who hate me.

 8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD Than to trust in man.

 9 It is better to take refuge in the LORD Than to trust in princes.


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.
