ALMIGHTY Father, who hast given thine only Son
for our sins, and to rise again for our justification: Grant us so to
away the leaven of malice and wickedness, that we may alway serve thee
in pureness of living and truth; through the merits of the same thy Son
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
1 S. John 5. 4.
WHATSOEVER is born of God overcometh the world:
is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is
he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the
of God? This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus
not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit
beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three
that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:
these three are one. If we receive the witness of men, the
of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath
of his Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness
in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar, because he
believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is
record, that God hath given to us eternal life; and this life is in his
Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son
of God hath not life.
S. John 20. 19
THE same day at evening, being the first day of

the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace
be unto you. And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his
and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the
Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: As my Father hath
me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on
them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost. Whosesoever sins
ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosesoever sins ye retain,
they are retained.
Ant. SING we merrily unto God our
make a cheerful noise unto the God of Jacob.
2 Raise the psalm and sound the timbrel, / the
harp with the lute.
3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, / at the
moon, for our solemn feast day.
4 For this was made a statute for Israel, / and
of the God of Jacob.
Glory be. Repeat Antiphon.
* THE same stone which the builders refused /
the head-stone in the corner.
23 This is the Lord's doing, / and it is
24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; /
rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Help us now, O Lord: /
O Lord, send us now prosperity.
* During Eastertide, Alleluia is said
the psalm portion, and once after the last verse. It may be said
after each verse.
