Collect

Almighty and everlasting God,
you have given us your servants grace,
by the confession of a true faith,
to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity
and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity:
keep us steadfast in this faith,
that we may evermore be defended from all adversities;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Old Testament

Isaiah 40:12-17,27-31

   12Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

   13Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?

   14With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?

   15Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.

   16And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.

   17All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

   27Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?

   28Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

   29He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

   30Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

   31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

 

Epistle

2 Corinthians 13:11-13

   11Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

   12Greet one another with an holy kiss.

   13All the saints salute you.

 

Psalm

Psalm 8

   1O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

   2Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

   3When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

   4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

   5For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

   6Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

   7All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;

   8The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.

   9O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

 

Gospel

Matthew 28:16-20

   16Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

   17And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.

   18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

   19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

   20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
