Matins – First Collect: O God the King of Glory, who hast exalted thine only Son Jesus Christ with great triumph unto thy kingdom in heaven: We beseech thee, leave us not comfortless; but send to us thine Holy Ghost to comfort us, and exult us unto the same place whither our Saviour Christ is gone before; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end.

Psalm 97. Dominus regnavit.
THE LORD is King, the earth may be / glad there/of; * yea, the multitude of the isles / may be / glad there/of.
2 Clouds and darkness are / round a/bout him: * righteousness and judgment are the habi/tation / of his / seat.
3 There shall go a / fire be/fore him, * and burn up his / enemies on / every / side.
4 His lightnings gave shine / unto the / world: * the earth / saw it, and / was a/fraid.
5 The hills melted like wax at the / presence of the / LORD; * at the presence of the / Lord of the / whole / earth.
6 The heavens have de/clared his / righteousness, * and all the / people have / seen his / glory.
7 Confounded be all they that worship carved images, and that delight in / vain / gods: * worship / him / all ye / gods.
8 Sion heard of it / and re/joiced; and the daughters of Judah were glad * be/cause of thy / judgments O / LORD.
9 For thou, LORD, art higher than all that are / in the / earth: * thou art exalted / far above / all / gods.
10 O ye that love the LORD, see that ye hate the / thing which is / evil: * the Lord preserveth the souls of his saints, he shall deliver them / from the / hand of the un/godly.
11 There is sprung up a / light for the / righteous, * and joyful gladness for / such as are / true/hearted.
12 Rejoice in the / LORD ye / righteous; * and give thanks for a re/membrance / of his / holiness.
