The Psalter


Psalm 67


The Sixty-Seventh Psalm

Deus misereatur.


God be merciful unto us, and bless us, * and show us the light of his countenance, and be merciful unto us;
 
That thy way may be known upon earth, * thy saving health among all nations.
 
Let the peoples praise thee, O God; * yea, let all the peoples praise thee.
 
O let the nations rejoice and be glad; * for thou shalt judge the folk righteously, and govern the nations upon earth.
 
Let the peoples praise thee, O God; * yea, let all the peoples praise thee.
 
Then shall the earth bring forth her increase; * and God, even our own God, shall give us his blessing.
 
God shall bless us; * and all the ends of the world shall fear him.


Psalm 87


The Eighty-Seventh Psalm

Fundamenta ejus.


HER foundations are upon the holy hills: * the LORD loveth the gates of Sion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
 
Very excellent things are spoken of thee, * thou city of God.
 
I will make mention of Egypt and Babylon, * among them that know me.
 
Behold, Philistia also; and Tyre, with Ethiopia; * lo, in Sion were they born.
 
Yea, of Sion it shall be reported, this one and that one were born in her; * and the Most High shall stablish her.
 
The LORD shall record it, when he writeth up the peoples; * lo, in Sion were they born.
 
The singers also and trumpeters shall make answer: * All my fresh springs are in thee.



 

The First Lesson


Isaiah 19:19


In that day shall there be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them. And the Lord shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the Lord in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto the Lord, and perform it. And the Lord shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the Lord, and he shall be entreated of them, and shall heal them. In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: Whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.



 

The Second Lesson

Colossians 2:6-17

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.



 

The Collect

The Epiphany

O GOD, who by the leading of a star didst manifest thy only-begotten Son to the Gentiles; Mercifully grant that we, who know thee now by faith, may after this life have the fruition of thy glorious Godhead; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
