173 Let thine hand help me : for I have chosen thy commandments. ( 174 I have longed for thy saving health, O Lord : and in thy law is my delight. : 175 O let my soul live, and it shall praise thee : and thy judgements shall help me. :) : 176 I have gone astray like a sheep that is lost : O seek thy servant, for I do not forget thy commandments

Morning Prayer.

Psalm 120. Ad Dominum. W HEN I was in trouble I called upon

W the Lord : and he heard me. 2 Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips : and from a deceitful tongue.

3 What reward shall be given or done unto thee, thou false tongue : even mighty and sharp arrows, with hot burning coals.

4 Wo is me, that I am constrained to dwell with Mesech : and to have my habitation among the tents of Kedar.

5 My soul hath long dwelt among them : that are enemies unto peace. .6 I labour for peace, but when I speak unto them thereof : they make them ready to battle.

Psalm 121. Levavi oculos. I Will lift up mine eyes unto the hills : from 1 whence cometh my help.

2 My help cometh even from the Lord : who hath made heaven and earth. . 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved : and he that keepeth thee will not sleep.

4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel : shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord himself is thy keeper : the Lord is thy defence upon thy right hand;

6 So that the sun shall not burn thee by day : neither the moon by night.

7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil : yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.

8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in : from this time forth for evermore.

Psalm 122. Lætatus sum. I Was glad when they said unto me : We I will go into the house of the Lord. ;

2 Our feet shall stand in thy gates : 0 Jerusalem.

3 Jerusalem is built as a city : that is at unity in itself.

4 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.

5 For there is the seat of judgement : even the seat of the house of David.

6 O pray for the peace of Jerusalem : they shall prosper that love thee.

:7 Peace be within thy walls : and plenteousness within thy palaces. : 8 For my brethren and companions' sakes : I will wish thee prosperity.

9 Yea, because of the house of the Lord our God : I will seek to do thee good.:

Psalm 123. Ad te levavi oculos meos. I INTO thee lift I up mine eyes : 0 thou U that dwellest in the heavens. 2 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.

3 Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us : for we are utterly despised.

4 Our soul is filled with the scornful reproof of the wealthy : and with the despitefulness of the proud. .: Psalm 124. Nisi quia Dominus. TF the Lord himself had not been on our 1 side, now may Israel say : if the Lord himself had not been on our side, when men rose up against us; (2. They had swallowed us up quick : when they were so wrathfully displeased at us. $3 Yea, the waters had drowned us : and the stream had gone over our soul. * 4 The deep waters of the proud : had gone even over our soul.

:5 But praised be the Lord : who hath not given us over for a prey unto their teeth.

6 Our soul is escaped even as a bird out of the snare of the fowler : the snare is broken, and we are delivered.

7 Our help standeth in the Name of the Lord : who hath made heaven and earth.

Psalm 125. Qui confidunt. THEY that put their trust in the Lord

I shall be even as the mount Sion : which may not be removed, but standeth fast for ever. .

2 The hills stand about Jerusalem : even so standeth the Lord round about his people, from this time forth for evermore.

3 For the rod of the ungodly cometh not into the lot of the righteous : lest the righteous put their hand unto wickedness.

4 Do well, O Lord : unto those that are good and true of heart.

5 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.

Evening Prayer.

Psalm 126. In convertendo. W HEN 'the Lord turned again the cap

W tivity of Sion : then were we like unto them that dream.

2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter : and our tongue with joy.

3 Then said they among the heathen : The Lord hath done great things for them. :

4 Yea, the Lord hath done great things for us already : whereof we rejoice.

5 Turn our captivity, O Lord : as the rivers in the south. 6 They that sow in tears : shall reap in joy : 7 He that now goeth on his way weeping, and beareth forth good seed : shall doubtless come again with joy, and bring his sheaves with him.

Psalm 127. Nisi Dominus. TXCEPT the Lord build the house : their U labour is but lost that build it.

2 Except the Lord keep the city: the watchman waketh but in vain.

3 It is but lost labour that ye haste to rise up early, and so late take rest, and eat the bread of carefulness : for so he giveth his beloved sleep.

4 Lo, children and the fruit of the womb : are an heritage and gift that cometh of the Lord.

5 Like as the arrows in the hand of the giant : even so are the young children.

6 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full · of them : they shall not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.;
