Psalm 85 

Wilt thou not turn again, O God, and quicken us, that thy people may rejoice in thee: shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation. 


We beseech thee, O Lord, mercifully to accept the prayers and oblations of us thy humble servants: that we, who can do nothing of ourselves, may be defended by the succour of thy grace.  Through. 

SECRET 2  Of Advent 

Grant, we beseech thee, O Lord, that the effectual power of these thy holy mysteries may in such wise cleanse us from all our iniquities that we may in all purity attain unto him who is the author of the same, even Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord.  Who liveth and reigneth with thee. 

SECRET 3  Of Saint Mary 

We beseech thee, O Lord, stablish in our hearts the mysteries of thy true religion: that, as we do believe thy Son, conceived of a virgin, to be very God and very man, so by the power of his resurrection we may be found worthy to attain to everlasting felicity.  (Through the same.) 

PREFACE Of the Most Holy Trinity 

COMMUNION Baruch 4 and 5 

Arise, O Jerusalem, and stand on high, and behold the joy that cometh unto theefrom thy God. 


O Lord, who hast vouchsafed to satisfy us with heavenly sustenance: we humbly beseech thee; that we, whom thou hast made partakers of thy holy mysteries, may learn therin to despise all things earthly, and to cleave stedfastly unto all things heavenly.  Through. 


Grant to us, O Lord, we beseech thee: so to wait for thy loving kindness in the midst of thy Temple, that in readiness of heart and mind we may hail the coming feast of our redemption.  Through. 


We beseech thee, O Lord, pour thy grace into our hearts: that as we have known the incarnation of thy Son Jesus Christ by the message of an Angel; so by his cross and passion we may be brought to the glory of his resurrection.  (Through the same.)
