Daily Morning Prayer: Rite Two

Opening Hymn 287 (“For All the Saints, Who from Their Labors Rest”)

1 For all the saints, who from their labors rest,

Who thee by faith before the world confessed,

Thy Name, O Jesus, be forever blessed.

Alleluia, alleluia!

2 Thou wast their rock, their fortress, and their might:

Thou, Lord, their Captain in the well-fought fight;

Thou, in the darkness drear, the one true Light.

Alleluia, alleluia!

3 O may thy soldiers, faithful, true, and bold,

Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old,

And win, with them, the victor’s crown of gold.

Alleluia, alleluia!

4 O blest communion, fellowship divine!

We feebly struggle, they in glory shine;

Yet all are one in thee, for all are thine.

Alleluia, alleluia!

5 And when the strife is fierce, the warfare long,

Steals on the ear the distant triumph song,

And hearts are brave again, and arms are strong.

Alleluia, alleluia!

6 The golden evening brightens in the west;

Soon, soon to faithful warriors cometh rest;

Sweet is the calm of paradise the blest.

Alleluia, alleluia!

7 But lo! There breaks a yet more glorious day;

The saints triumphant rise in bright array;

The king of glory passes on his way.

Alleluia, alleluia!

8 From earth’s wide bounds, from ocean’s farthest coast,

Through gates of pearl streams in the countless host,

Singing to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

Alleluia, alleluia!

The Officiant begins the service with one or more of these sentences of Scripture.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:2

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14

The hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. John 4:23

Confession of Sin

The Officiant says to the people

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor. (Silence may be kept.)

Officiant and People together:

Most merciful God,  we confess that we have sinned against you  in thought, word, and deed,  by what we have done,  and by what we have left undone.  We have not loved you with our whole heart;  we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.  We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.  For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,  have mercy on us and forgive us;  that we may delight in your will,  and walk in your ways,  to the glory of your Name. Amen. 

The Priest or Officiant alone says:

Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal life. Amen.

The Invitatory and Psalter

Officiant: Lord, open our lips.

People: And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Officiant and People together:

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as  it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia!

Officiant and People together:

Venite Psalm 95:1-7

Come, let us sing to the Lord; *

let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.

Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving *

and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.

For the Lord is a great God, *

and a great King above all gods.

In his hand are the caverns of the earth, *

and the heights of the hills are his also.

The sea is his, for he made it, *

and his hands have molded the dry land.

Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, *

and kneel before the Lord our Maker.

For he is our God,

and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. *

Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!

Lector: Let us together recite the Psalm Appointed for today.

Psalm (34:1-10, 22)

Benedicam Dominum

1 I will bless the Lord at all times; * his praise shall ever be in my mouth.

2 I will glory in the Lord; * let the humble hear and rejoice.

3 Proclaim with me the greatness of the Lord; * let us exalt his Name together.

4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me * and delivered me out of all my terror.

5 Look upon him and be radiant, * and let not your faces be ashamed.

6 I called in my affliction and the Lord heard me * and saved me from all my troubles.

7 The angel of the Lord encompasses those who fear him, * and he will deliver them.

8 Taste and see that the Lord is good; * happy are they who trust in him!

9 Fear the Lord, you that are his saints, * for those who fear him lack nothing.

10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger, * but those who seek the Lord lack nothing that is good.

22 The Lord ransoms the life of his servants, * and none will be punished who trust in him.

At the end is sung or said

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *      as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia!

The Readings

The First Lesson

Lector: A reading from Revelation (7:9-17)

After this I, John, looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands. They cried out in a loud voice, saying,

"Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!" And all the angels stood around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, singing,

"Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen."

Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, "Who are these, robed in white, and where have they come from?" I said to him, "Sir, you are the one that knows." Then he said to me, "These are they who have come out of the great ordeal; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

"For this reason they are before the throne of God,

and worship him day and night within his temple,

and the one who is seated on the throne will shelter them.

They will hunger no more, and thirst no more;

the sun will not strike them,

nor any scorching heat;

for the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd,

and he will guide them to springs of the water of life,

and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

Lector: Here ends the reading.

Silence may be kept after each Reading.

Officiant and People together:

10 The Second Song of Isaiah (Isaiah 55:6-11)        Quaerite Dominum

Seek the Lord while he wills to be found; *     call upon him when he draws near. Let the wicked forsake their ways *     and the evil ones their thoughts; And let them turn to the Lord, and he will have compassion, *     and to our God, for he will richly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, *     nor your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, *     so are my ways higher than your ways,     and my thoughts than your thoughts.

For as rain and snow fall from the heavens *     and return not again, but water the earth, Bringing forth life and giving growth, *     seed for sowing and bread for eating, So is my word that goes forth from my mouth; *     it will not return to me empty; But it will accomplish that which I have purposed, *     and prosper in that for which I sent it.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *     as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

The Epistle

Lector: A reading from 1 John (3:1-3)

See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God's children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is. And all who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.

Lector: Here ends the reading.

The Gloria is sung to a familiar tune

Glory to God in the highest,     and peace to his people on earth.

Lord God, heavenly King, almighty God and Father,     we worship you, we give you thanks,     we praise you for your glory.

Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father,

Lord God, Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world:     have mercy on us; you are seated at the right hand of the Father:      receive our prayer.

For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, you alone are the Most High,     Jesus Christ,     with the Holy Spirit,     in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

The Gospel

Lector: A reading from the Gospel according to Matthew (5:1-12)

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. "Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy. "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. "Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

Lector: Here ends the reading.

The Sermon (and/or Announcements)

Praise Hymn 423 (“Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise”)

The Apostles' Creed

Officiant and People together:

I believe in God, the Father almighty,      creator of heaven and earth; 

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.      He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit          and born of the Virgin Mary.      He suffered under Pontius Pilate,          was crucified, died, and was buried.      He descended to the dead.      On the third day he rose again.      He ascended into heaven,          and is seated at the right hand of the Father.      He will come again to judge the living and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit,      the holy catholic Church,      the communion of saints,      the forgiveness of sins     the resurrection of the body,      and the life everlasting. Amen.
