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 and everlasting God, you govern all things both in heaven and on earth: Mercifully hear the supplications of your people, and in our time grant us your peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


The Liturgy of the Word


The First Lesson Deuteronomy 18: 15 20

Moses said: The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you shall heed such a prophet. This is what you requested of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said: “If I hear the voice of the Lord my God any more, or ever again see this great fire, I will die.” Then the Lord replied to me: “They are right in what they have said. I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their own people; I will put my words in the mouth of the prophet, who shall speak to them everything that I command. Anyone who does not heed the words that the prophet shall speak in my name, I myself will hold accountable. But any prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, or who presumes to speak in my name a word that I have not commanded the prophet to speak—that prophet shall die.”


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


The Psalm: 111: Confitebor tibi


1 Alleluia! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, *

in the assembly of the upright, in the congregation.


2 Great are the deeds of the Lord! * they are studied by all who delight in them.


3 His work is full of majesty and splendour, * and his righteousness endures for ever.


4 He makes his marvellous works to be remembered; *

the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.


5 He gives food to those who fear him; * he is ever mindful of his covenant.


6 He has shown his people the power of his works *

in giving them the lands of the nations.


7 The works of his hands are faithfulness and justice; * all his commandments are sure.


8 They stand fast for ever and ever, * because they are done in truth and equity.
