We praise thee O God we acknowledge thee to be the Lord.
All the earth doth worship thee the Father ever lasting.
To thee all Angels cry aloud: the Heavens, and all the Powers there in;
To Thee Cherubim and Seraphim continually do cry,
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of Sabaoth;
Heaven and earth are full of the Majesty of thy glory.
The glorious company of Apostles praise thee.
The goodly fellowship of the Prophets praise thee.
The noble army of Martyrs praise thee.
The holy Church throughout the world doth acknowledge thee;
The Fzther of an infinite Majesty;
Thine adorable true and only Son;
Also the Holy Ghost the Comforter.
Thou art the King of Glory O Christ.
Thou art ever lasting Son of the Father.
When thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers.
Thou sittest at the right hand of God in the glory of the Father.
We believe that thou shalt come to be our Judge.
We therefore pray thee help thy servants whom thou hast redeemed with thy precious blood.
Make them to be numbered with thy Saints in glory ever lasting.
O Lord save thy people and bless thine heritage.
Goern them and lift them up forever.
Day be day we magnify thee;
And we worship thy Name ever world without end.
Vouchsafe O Lord to keep us this day without sin.
O Lord have mercy upon us, have mercy upon us.
O Lord let thy mercy be upon us as our trust is in thee.
O Lord in thee have I trusted; let me never be confounded.

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel for he hath visited and redeemed his people;
And hath raised up a mighty salvation for us in the house of his servant David;
As he spake by the mouth of his holy Prophets; which have been since the world began;
That we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all that hate us.
To perform the mercy promised to our forefathers and to remember his holy covenant;
To perform the oath which he sware to our forefather Abraham that he would give us;
That we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear;
In holiness and righteousness before him all the days of our life.
And thou child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
To give knowledge of salvation unto his people for the remission of their sins,
Through the tender mercy of our God whereby the day-spring from on high hath visited us;
To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death and to guide our feet into the way of peace.
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.
