Glory to God in the highest, and peace to his people on earth. Lord God, heavenly King, almighty God and Father, we worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory. Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father, Lord God, Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world: have mercy on us; you are seated at the right hand of the Father: receive our prayer.


For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father. Amen.


The Collect of the Day

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Let us pray.


Almighty God, you have given your only Son to be for us a sacrifice for sin, and also an example of godly life: Give us grace to receive thankfully the fruits of his redeeming work, and to follow daily in the blessed steps of his most holy life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.


The Liturgy of the Word


The First Lesson: Proverbs 9: 1-6

Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn her seven pillars. She has slaughtered her animals, she has mixed her wine, she has also set her table. She has sent out her servant-girls, she calls from the highest places in the town, “You that are simple, turn in here!” To those without sense she says, “Come, eat of my bread and drink of the wine I have mixed. Lay aside immaturity, and live, and walk in the way of insight.”


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


The Psalm: Benedicam Dominum Psalm 34: 9-14

9 Fear the Lord, you that are his saints, * for those who fear him lack nothing.


10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger, *

but those who seek the Lord lack nothing that is good.


11 Come, children, and listen to me; * I will teach you the fear of the Lord.


12 Who among you loves life * and desires long life to enjoy prosperity?
