Post Communion:  Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness and to put on the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which your Son Jesus Christ came to us in great humility: that on the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.

Matins Collect:  O Lord Jesu Christ, who at thy first coming didst send thy messenger to prepare thy way before thee:  Grant that the ministers and stewards of thy mysteries may likewise so prepare and make ready thy way, by turning the hearts of the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, that at thy second coming to judge the world we may be found an acceptable people in thy sight, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end.

Psalm 146. Lauda, anima mea.

PRAISE the LORD, O my soul, while I live will I / praise the / LORD; * yea, as long as I have any being, I will sing / praises / unto my / God.
2 O put not your trust in princes, nor in any / child of / man; * for there / is no / help in / them.
3 For when the breath of man goeth forth, he shall turn a/gain to his /  earth, * and then / all his / thoughts / perish.
4 Blessed is he that hath the God of Jacob / for his / help, * and whose hope is / in the / LORD his / God:
5 Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that / therein / is; * who / keepeth his / promise for / ever;
6 Who helpeth them to right that / suffer / wrong; * who / feed/eth the /  hungry.
7 The LORD looseth men / out of / prison; * the LORD giveth / sight / to the / blind.
8 The LORD helpeth / them that are / fallen; * the LORD / careth / for the / righteous.
9 The LORD careth for the strangers; he defendeth the / fatherless and / widow: * as for the way of the ungodly he / turneth it / upside / down.
10 The LORD thy God O Sion, shall be King for / ever/more, * and through/out all / gene/rations.
