OFFERTORY  Psalm 72 

The king of Tharsis and of the isles shall give presents: the kings of Arabia and Saba shall bring gifts: all kings shall fall down before him, all nations
shall do him service. 


We beseech thee, O Lord, mercifully to look upon the oblations of thy Church: wherein no longer offering gold and frankincense and myrrh, we sacrifice
and receive him who by those gifts was mystically signified, even Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord.  Who liveth and reigneth with thee.
