¶ Then shall be read, in like manner, the second Lesson, taken out of the New Testament, according to the Table or Calendar; and after that, the following Psalm.
Jubilate Deo. Psalm c.
O BE joyful in the LORD, all ye lands; serve the LORD with gladness, and come before his presence with a song.
Be ye sure that the LORD he is GOD, it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise; be thankful unto him, and speak good of his name.
For the LORD is gracious, his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth from generation to generation.
¶ Or this Hymn.
Benedictus. St. Luke i. 68. 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.
T Then shall be said the Apostles' Creed, by the Minister and the People, standing: And any Churches may omit the words, He descended into hell, or may, instead of them, use the words, He went into the place of departed Spirits, which are considered as words of the same meaning in the Creed.
I BELIEVE in GoD the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:
And in JESUS CHRIST his only Son our Lord; Who was conceived by the HOLY GHOST, born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; The
third day he rose from the dead; He ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of GOD the Father Almighty; From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the HOLY GHOST; The holy catholic Church; The communion of saints; The rection of the body, and the life forgiveness of sins; The resureverlasting. Amen.
¶ Or this.
Father Almighty, Maker of I BELIEVE in one GOD, the things visible and invisible: heaven and earth, and of all
And in one Lord JESUS
CHRIST, the only begotten Son before all worlds; GoD of GOD, of GOD, begotten of his Father 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 HoĻy 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 come. Amen.
