Day 15 Morning Prayer

Psalm 75

Confitebimur tibi

  1. UNTO thee, O God, do we give thanks: yea, unto thee do we give thanks.
  2. Thy Name also is so nigh: and that do thy wondrous works declare.
  3. When I receive the congregation: I shall judge according unto right.
  4. The earth is weak, and all the inhabiters thereof: I bear up the pillars of it.
  5. I said unto the fools, Deal not so madly: and to the ungodly, Set not up your horn.
  6. Set not up your horn on high: and speak not with a stiff neck.
  7. For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west: nor yet from the south.
  8. And why? God is the Judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
  9. For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red: it is full mixed, and he poureth out of the same.
  10. As for the dregs thereof: all the ungodly of the earth shall drink them, and suck them out.
  11. But I will talk of the God of Jacob: and praise him for ever.
  12. All the horns of the ungodly also will I break: and the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

Psalm 76

Notus in Judaea

  1. IN JEWRY is God known: his Name is great in Israel.
  2. At Salem is his tabernacle: and his dwelling in Sion.
  3. There brake he the arrows of the bow: the shield, the sword, and the battle.
  4. Thou art of more honour and might: than the hills of the robbers.
  5. The proud are robbed, they have slept their sleep: and all the men whose hands were mighty have found nothing.
  6. At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob: both the chariot and horse are fallen.
  7. Thou, even thou art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when thou art angry?
  8. Thou didst cause thy judgement to be heard from heaven: the earth trembled, and was still;
  9. When God arose to judgement: and to help all the meek upon earth.
  10. The fierceness of man shall turn to thy praise: and the fierceness of them shalt thou refrain.
  11. Promise unto the Lord your God, and keep it, all ye that are round about him: bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
  12. He shall refrain the spirit of princes: and is wonderful among the kings of the earth.

Psalm 77

Voce mea ad Dominum

  1. I WILL cry unto God with my voice: even unto God will I cry with my voice, and he shall hearken unto me.
  2. In the time of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran and ceased not in the night-season ; my soul refused comfort.
  3. When I am in heaviness, I will think upon God: when my heart is vexed, I will complain.
  4. Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so feeble, that I cannot speak.
  5. I have considered the days of old: and the years that are past.
  6. I call to remembrance my song: and in the night I commune with mine own heart, and search out my spirits.
  7. Will the Lord absent himself for ever: and will he be no more intreated?
  8. Is his mercy clean gone for ever: and is his promise come utterly to an end for evermore?
  9. Hath God forgotten to be gracious: and will he shut up his loving-kindness in displeasure?
  10. And I said, It is mine own infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most Highest.
  11. I will remember the works of the Lord: and call to mind thy wonders of old time.
  12. I will think also of all thy works: and my talking shall be of thy doings.
  13. Thy way, O God, is holy: who is so great a God as our God?
  14. Thou art the God that doeth wonders: and hast declared thy power among the people.
  15. Thou hast mightily delivered thy people: even the sons of Jacob and Joseph.
  16. The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee, and were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
  17. The clouds poured out water, the air thundered: and thine arrows went abroad.
  18. The voice of thy thunder was heard round about: the lightnings shone upon the ground: the earth was moved, and shook withal.
  19. Thy way is in the sea, and thy paths in the great waters: and thy footsteps are not known.
  20. Thou leddest thy people like sheep: by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
