Then shall be sung or said, all standing, the Nicene Creed.
I believe in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And of all things visible and invisible:
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, Very God of very God, Begotten, not made, Being of one substance with the Father; By whom all things were made: Who for us men, and for our salvation came down from heaven, And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, And was made man, And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate: He suffered and was buried, And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures, And ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead: Whose kingdom shall have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Ghost, The Lord and Giver of life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, Who spake by the prophets. And I believe one Catholic and Apostolic Church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, And I look for the Resurrection of the dead, And the life of the world to Amen.
Let us pray.
Lord, have mercy upon us.
Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil : For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
O Lord, shew thy mercy upon us;
O Lord, save these thy servants,
Who put their trust in Thee.
Send them help from thy Holy Place;
And bless thine inheritance.
O God, who hast prepared for them that love Thee such good things as pass man's understanding; pour into our hearts such love towards Thee, that we, loving Thee above all things, may obtain thy promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Almighty God, unto whom all hearts be open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid; cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of thy Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love Thee, and worthily magnify thy holy name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Grant to us, Lord, we beseech Thee, the Spirit to think and do always such things as be rightful; that we, who cannot do any thing that is good
without Thee, may by Thee be enabled to live according to thy will, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
O Lord, who hast taught us that all our doings without charity are nothing worth, send thy Holy Ghost, and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of charity, the very bond of peace, and of all virtues, without which whosoever liveth is counted dead before Thee; grant this for thine only Son Jesus Christ's sake. Amen.
God, who didst teach the hearts of thy faithful people, by the sending to them the light of thy Holy Spirit; grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgment in all things, and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort; through the merits of Christ Jesus our Saviour, who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the unity of the same Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.
O Lord God Almighty, who didst endue thy holy Apostles, and those on whom they did lay their hands, with singular gifts of the Holy Ghost; leave us not, we beseech Thee*, Or leave not, destitute of thy manifold gifts, nor we beseech Thee, yet of grace to use them always to thy honour and glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

blessed laver of Baptism, thereby receiving us † into the number of thy children, and making us † heirs of everlasting life, in the communion of thy glorious saints; strengthen us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, with thy blessed Spirit, the ghostly Comforter; and daily increase in us thy manifold gifts of grace, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and ghostly strength, the spirit of knowledge and true godliness, and fulfil us †, Lord, with the spirit of thy holy fear, even through Him who hath sent down the Spirit upon his Church, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
O Lord God, who dwellest in Sion, and delightest to have thy habitation in the hearts of men: Thou hast built the Church as a city upon a hill, and laid the foundation of it upon the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone: make us to be a spiritual building fit for thy habitation, and a residence for thy Holy Spirit, grounding us in faith, building us up in hope, and perfecting us in charity, that we, being joined in the communion of saints, in the union of the holy Catholic Church militant on earth, may all partake of the blessings of thy Church triumphant, in the city of Thee our God, in the celestial Jerusalem, where Thou livest and reignest, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
Assist us mercifully, O Lord, in these our supplications and prayers, and dispose the way
of thy servants towards the attainment of everlasting salvation; that among all the changes and chances of this mortal life, they may ever be defended by thy most gracious and ready help; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost, be with us all evermore. Amen.
