Collect

God our redeemer,
you have delivered us from the power of darkness
and brought us into the kingdom of your Son:
grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life,
so by his continual presence in us he may raise us
to eternal joy;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

 

Old Testament

Acts 16:9-15

   9And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.

   10And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.

   11Therefore loosing from Troas, we came with a straight course to Samothracia, and the next day to Neapolis;

   12And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days.

   13And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither.

   14And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.

   15And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.

 

Epistle

Revelation 21:10,22-22:5

   10And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

   22And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

   23And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

   24And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

   25And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

   26And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

   27And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Revelation 22

   1And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

   2In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

   3And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

   4And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

   5And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

 

Psalm

Psalm 67

   1God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.

   2That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.

   3Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.

   4O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.

   5Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.

   6Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.

   7God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

 

Gospel

John 14:23-29

   23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

   24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

   25These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

   26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

   27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

   28Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

   29And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
