Day 27 Morning Prayer
- WHEN I was in trouble I called upon the Lord: and he heard me.
- Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips: and from a deceitful tongue.
- What reward shall be given or done unto thee, thou false tongue: even mighty and sharp arrows, with hot burning coals.
- Woe is me, that I am constrained to dwell with Mesech: and to have my habitation among the tents of Kedar.
- My soul hath long dwelt among them: that are enemies unto peace.
- I labour for peace, but when I speak unto them thereof: they make them ready to battle.
- I WILL lift up mine eyes unto the hills: from whence cometh my help.
- My help cometh even from the Lord: who hath made heaven and earth.
- He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: and he that keepeth thee will not sleep.
- Behold, he that keepeth Israel: shall neither slumber nor sleep.
- The Lord himself is thy keeper: the Lord is thy defence upon thy right hand;
- So that the sun shall not burn thee by day: neither the moon by night.
- The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.
- The Lord shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in: from this time forth for evermore.
- I WAS glad when they said unto me: We will go into the house of the Lord.
- Our feet shall stand in thy gates: O Jerusalem.
- Jerusalem is built as a city: that is at unity in itself.
- For thither the tribes go up, even the tribes of the Lord: to testify unto Israel, to give thanks unto the Name of the Lord.
- For there is the seat of judgement: even the seat of the house of David.
- O pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
- Peace be within thy walls: and plenteousness within thy palaces.
- For my brethren and companions' sakes: I will wish thee prosperity.
- Yea, because of the house of the Lord our God: I will seek to do thee good.
Ad te levavi oculos meos
- UNTO thee lift I up mine eyes: O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
- Behold, even as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress: even so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until he have mercy upon us.
- Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us: for we are utterly despised.
- Our soul is filled with the scornful reproof of the wealthy: and with the despitefulness of the proud.
Nisi quia Dominus
- IF THE Lord himself had not been on our side, now may Israel say: if the Lord himself had not been on our side, when men rose up against us;
- They had swallowed us up quick: when thy were so wrathfully displeased at us.
- Yea, the waters had drowned us: and the stream had gone over our soul.
- The deep waters of the proud: had gone even over our soul.
- But praised be the Lord: who hath not given us over for a prey unto their teeth.
- Our soul is escaped even as a bird out of the snare of the fowler: the snare is broken, and we are delivered .
- Our help standeth in the Name of the Lord: who hath made heaven and earth.
- THEY that put their trust in the Lord shall be even as the mount Sion: which may not be removed, but standeth fast for ever.
- The hills stand about Jerusalem: even so standeth the Lord round about his people, from this time forth for evermore.
- For the rod of the ungodly cometh not into the lot of the righteous: lest the righteous put their hand unto wickedness.
- Do well, O Lord: unto those that are good and true of heart.
- As for such as turn back unto their own wickedness: the Lord shall lead them forth with the evil-doers; but peace shall be upon Israel.
