Collect

Almighty God,
in Christ you make all things new:
transform the poverty of our nature by the riches of your grace,
and in the renewal of our lives
make known your heavenly glory;
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

Isaiah 49:1-7

   1Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.

   2And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me;

   3And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

   4Then I said, I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the LORD, and my work with my God.

   5And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.

   6And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.

   7Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee.

 

Epistle

1 Corinthians 1:1-9

   1Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

   2Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their's and our's:

   3Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

   4I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

   5That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;

   6Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

   7So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

   8Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

   9God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Psalm

Psalm 40:1-12

   1I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

   2He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

   3And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

   4Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

   5Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

   6Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.

   7Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

   8I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.

   9I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.

   10I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

   11Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

   12For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.

 

Gospel

John 1:29-42

   29The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

   30This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.

   31And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.

   32And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.

   33And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.

   34And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

   35Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;

   36And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

   37And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

   38Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?

   39He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.

   40One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.

   41He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.

   42And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.
