For like as we are compelled by the Christian Vér-ity: to acknowledge every person by himself to be God and { Lord;

So are we forbidden by the Catholic Re- { li-gion : to say, There be three Gods, or three { Lords.

The Father is made of { none: neither created, nor be- { got-ten.

The Son is of the Father a- } lone : not made, nor created, but be-got-ten.

The Holy Ghost is of the Father and of the } Son: neither made, nor created, nor begotten,* but pro- { ceed-ing.

So there is one Father, not three Fathers ;* one Son, not three Sons : one Holy Ghost, not three Holy { Ghosts.

And in this Trinity none is afore or after } 6-ther : none is greater or less than an- | o-ther.

But the whole three persons are co-eternal to- } geth-er: and co-e-qual.

So that in all things, as is aforesaid: the Unity in Trinity, and the Trinity in Unity,* is to be { worship-ped.

(1) He therefore that will be { sáv-ed: must thus think of the { Trini-ty.

Furthermore,* it is necessary to everlasting

sal- { va-tion : that he also believe rightly* the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus { Christ.

(f) For the right Faith is,* that we believe and con- fess: that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God,* is God and { Män;

God, of the substance of the Father,* begotten before the { worlds: and Man, of the substance of his Mother,* born { in the world,

Perfect God, and perfect | Man: of a reasonable soul and human flesh sub- sist-ing.

Equal to the Father, * as touching his į Gódhead : and inferior to the Father,* as touching his Man-hood:

Who, although he be God and { Mán: yet he is not two, but one { Christ;

One;* not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh : but by taking of the Manhood into { God.

One altogether ;* not by confusion of Substance : but by unity of } Per-son.

For as the reasonable soul and flesh is one } Mán: so God and Man is one Christ;

+ Who suffered for our sal- { va-tion : descended

into hell,* (f) rose again the third day from the dead.

(f) He ascended into Heaven,* he sitteth on the right hand of the Father, God Al- { migh-ty: from whence he shall come to judge the quick and the } dead.

† At whose coming all men shall rise again with their { bo-dies: and shall give account for their own { works.

† And they that have done good shall go into life ever- { last-ing: and they that have done evil into everlasting {fire.

(f) This is the Catholic {Faith: which except a man believe faithfully,* he cannot be { sav-ed.

Glory be to the Father,* and to the { Són : and to the Holy Ghost ;

As it was in the beginning, * is now, and ever shall be : world without end. { A-men.

Morning Prayer.

[xix, xlv, lxxxv.] Psalm xix. Coeli enarrant.

Tone 2. (1.)

+ (2.) p. 3.

The heavens declare the glory of į God: and the firmament sheweth his { han-dy-work.

2 One day telleth an- { ó-ther : and one night certi- { fieth an-other.

3 (1) There is neither speech nor { lan-guage : but their voices are heard a- { mong them.

4 (f) Their sound is gone out into all { lands : and their words into the ends of the world.

5 In them hath he set a tabernacle for the { sún : which cometh forth as a bridegroom out of

his chamber,* and rejoiceth as a giant to { run his course.

6 It goeth forth froin the uttermost part of the heaven,* and runneth about unto the end of it a- gain: and there is nothing hid from the { heat there-of.

7 The law of the Lord is an undefiled law,* converting the { soul : the testimony of the Lord is sure,* and giveth wisdom unto the { sim-ple.

8 The statutes of the Lord are right,* and rejoice the { heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure,* and giveth light { unto the eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord is clean,* and endureth for { ev-er: the judgements of the Lord are true,* and righteous alto- { geth-er.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, * yea, than much } fine gold: sweeter also than honey, and the { ho-ney-comb.

11 Moreover, by them is thy servant { taught : and in keeping of them there is į great re-ward.

12 † Who can tell how oft he of- {fend-eth: O cleanse thou me from my { se-cret faults.

13 † Keep thy servant also from presumptuous sins,* lest they get the dominion { o-ver me: so shall I be undefiled,* and innocent from the great of-fence.
