Benedictus (optional)

Holy is the God of Israel, God has drawn near and saved the people, The Lord has brought a mighty Redeemer from David’s heritage, honouring the word, that was delivered by the prophets of old: That we will be delivered from our foes, and those that revile and reject us. Completing the mercy promised to our ancestors, for God has remembered the holy covenant, the vow made to Abraham, that being safe we can serve the Almighty free of fear, in holiness and integrity for all our days. You child, will be God’s prophet, preparing the path for the Lord Giving God’s people the news of their deliverance by the forgiveness of their sins. With caring mercy God’s loving dawn will shine on us, giving radiance to those in death’s sinful shadow, leading them, onto the path of peace.

Biblical Psalm

Psalm 5

1         Ponder my words, O Lord * consider my meditation

2         O hearken thou unto the voice of my calling, my King, and my God * for unto thee will I make my prayer.

3         My voice shalt thou hear betimes, O Lord * early in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

4         For thou art the God that hast no pleasure in wickedness * neither shall any devil dwell with thee.

5         Such as be foolish shall not stand in thy sight * for thou hatest all of them that work vanity.

6         Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing * the Lord will abhor both the blood-thirsty and deceitful man.

7         But as for me, I will come into thine house, even upon the multitude of thy mercy * and in thy fear, will I worship toward thy holy temple.

8         Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness, because of mine enemies * make thy way plain before my face.

9         For there is no faithfulness in his mouth * their inward parts are very wickedness.

10       Their throat is an open sepulchre * they flatter with their tongue.

11       Destroy thou them, O God; let them perish through their own imaginations * cast them out in the multitude of their ungodliness; for they have rebelled against thee.

12       And let all them that put their trust in thee rejoice * they shall ever be giving of thanks, because thou defendest them; they that love thy Name shall be joyful in thee;

13       For thou, Lord, wilt give thy blessing unto the righteous * and with thy favourable kindness wilt thou defend him as with a shield.

At the conclusion of the Psalm say:

Glory to God, Creator, Redeemer, Consoler and Our Saviour. As it was in the beginning, is now and shall be forevermore.  Amen.
