Hymn {from the Psalter for the season of the Church year}
The dusky veil of night hath laid
The varied hues of earth in shade;
Before Thee, righteous Judge of all,
We contrite in confession fall.

Take far away our load of sin,
Our soiled minds make clean within:
Thy sov’reign grace, O Christ, impart,
From all offence to guard our heart.

For lo! our mind is dull and cold,
Envenomed by sin’s baneful hold:
Fain would it now the darkness flee,
And seek, Redeemer, unto Thee.

Far from it drive the shades of night,
Its inmost darkness put to flight;
Till in the daylight of the blest
It joys to find itself at rest.

Almighty Father, hear our cry,
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord most High,
Who, with the Holy Spirit and Thee,
Doth live and reign eternally.
Amen.

Lesson from the first book of Machabees
1 Mac 6:1-6
1 Now king Antiochus was going through the higher countries, and he heard that the city of Elymais in Persia was greatly renowned, and abounding in silver and gold.
2 And that there was in it a temple, exceeding rich: and coverings of gold, and breastplates, and shields which king Alexander, son of Philip the Macedonian that reigned first in Greece, had left there.
3 Lo, he came, and sought to take the city and to pillage it: But he was not able, because the design was known to them that were in the city.
4 And they rose up against him in battle, and he fled away from thence, and departed with great sadness, and returned towards Babylonia.
5 And whilst he was in Persia, there came one that told him, how the armies that were in the land of Juda were put to flight:
6 And that Lysias went with a very great power, and was put to flight before the face of the Jews,
V. And thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord open your hearts in His law and commandments, and send peace in your days.
* May He grant you salvation and redeem you out of all evil.
V. The Lord hear your prayers, and be at one with you, and never forsake you in the time of trouble.

1 Mac 6:6-9
6 And that thy were grown strong by the armour, and power, and store of spoils, which they had gotten out of the camps which they had destroyed:
7 And that they had thrown down the abomination which he had set up upon the altar in Jerusalem, and that they had compassed about the sanctuary with high walls as before, and Bethsura also his city.
8 And it came to pass when the king heard these words, that he was struck with fear, and exceedingly moved: and he laid himself down upon his bed, and fell sick for grief, because it had not fallen out to him as he imagined.
9 And he remained there many days: for great grief came more and more and more upon him, and he made account that he should die.
V. And thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord hear your prayers, and be at one with you, and never forsake you in the time of trouble
* Even He, the Lord our God.
V. Give you all an heart to serve Him, and to do His will.
R. Even He, the Lord our God.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.

1 Mac 6:10-13
10 And he called for all his friends, and said to them: Sleep is gone from my eyes, and I am fallen away, and my heart is cast down for anxiety.
11 And I said in my heart: Into how much tribulation am I come, and into what floods of sorrow, wherein now I am: I that was pleasant and beloved in my power!
12 But now I remember the evils that I have done in Jerusalem, from whence also I took away all the spoils of gold, and of silver that were in it, and I sent to destroy the inhabitants of Juda without cause.
13 I know therefore that for this cause these evils have found me: and behold I perish with great grief in a strange land.
V. And thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us
R. Thanks be to God.

Hymnus
See the golden sun arise!
Let no more our darkened eyes
Snare us, tangled by surprise
In the maze of sin!

From false words and thoughts impure
Let this light, serene and sure,
Keep our lips without secure,
Keep our souls within.

So may we the day-time spend,
That, till life’s temptations end,
Tongue, nor hand, nor eye offend!
One, above us all,

Views in his revealing ray
All we do, and think, and say,
Watching us from break of day
Till the twilight fall.

Unto God the Father, Son,
Holy Spirit, Three in One,
One in Three, be glory done,
Now and evermore.
Amen.

V. We are filled in the morning with thy mercy:
R. And we have rejoiced, and are delighted.

Lowly of heart, our God we pray
That he from harm may keep us free
In all the deeds this day shall see.

May fear of him our tongues restrain,
Lest strife unguarded speech should stain:
His favouring care our guardian be,
Lest our eyes feed on vanity.

May every heart be pure from sin
And folly find no place therein:
Scant need of food, excess denied,
Wear down in us the body’s pride.

That when the light of day is gone,
And night in course shall follow on.
We, free from cares the world affords,
May chant the praise that is our Lord’s.

* All laud to God the Father be,
All praise, Eternal Son, to thee:
All glory, as is ever meet,
To God the holy Paraclete.

72:1 How good is God to Israel, to them that are of a right heart!
72:2 But my feet were almost moved; * my steps had wellnigh slipped.
72:3 Because I had a zeal on occasion of the wicked, * seeing the prosperity of sinners.
72:4 For there is no regard to their death, * nor is there strength in their stripes.
72:5 They are not in the labour of men: * neither shall they be scourged like other men.
72:6 Therefore pride hath held them fast: * they are covered with their iniquity and their wickedness.
72:7 Their iniquity hath come forth, as it were from fatness: * they have passed into the affection of the heart.
72:8 They have thought and spoken wickedness: * they have spoken iniquity on high.

72:14 And I have been scourged all the day; * and my chastisement hath been in the mornings.
72:15 If I said: I will speak thus; * behold I should condemn the generation of thy children.

72:20 As the dream of them that awake, O Lord; * so in thy city thou shalt bring their image to nothing.
72:21 For my heart hath been inflamed, and my reins have been changed: * and I am brought to nothing, and I knew not.
72:22 I am become as a beast before thee: * and I am always with thee.
72:23 Thou hast held me by my right hand; and by thy will thou hast conducted me, * and with thy glory thou hast received me.
72:24 For what have I in heaven? * and besides thee what do I desire upon earth?
72:25 For thee my flesh and my heart hath fainted away: * thou art the God of my heart, and the God that is my portion for ever.

Hymnus
O sovereign Lord of nature’s might,
Who bad’st the water’s birth divide;
Part in the heavens to take their flight,
And part in ocean’s deep to hide;

These low obscured, on airy wing
Exalted those, that either race,
Though from one element they spring,
Might serve thee in a different place.

Grant, Lord, that we thy servants all,
Saved by thy tide of cleansing blood,
No more ’neath sin's dominion fall,
Nor fear the thought of death’s dark flood!

Thy varied love each spirit bless,
The humble cheer, the high control;
Check in each heart its proud excess,
But raise the meek and contrite soul!

This boon, O Father, we entreat,
This blessing grant, Eternal Son,
And Holy Spirit, the Paraclete,
Both now, and while the ages run.
Amen.
