Anthem text
O Lord, open thou our lips:
And our mouth shall show forth thy praise.

O God, make speed to save us:
O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost:
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.

Praise ye the Lord:
The Lord’s name be praised.

The Lord be with you:
And with thy Spirit.

Let us pray.
Lord, have mercy upon us,
Christ, have mercy upon us,
Lord, have mercy upon us.

The Lord’s Prayer

O Lord, show thy mercy upon us:
And grant us thy salvation.

O Lord, save the State:
And mercifully hear us when we call upon thee.

Endue thy ministers with righteousness:
And make thy chosen people joyful.

O Lord, save thy people:
And bless thine inheritance.

Give peace in our time, O Lord:
Because there is none other
that fighteth for us,
but only thou, O God.

O God, make clean our hearts within us:
And take not thy Holy Spirit from us.

The Collects
Amen. Amen. Amen.
