The Introit  Psalm 20. Exaudiat te Dominus.

THE LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; * the Name of the God of Jacob defend thee:
    2 Send thee help from the sanctuary, * and strengthen thee out of Sion:
    3 Remember all thy offerings, * and accept thy burnt-sacrifice:
    4 Grant thee thy heart’s desire, * and fulfil all thy mind.
    5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and triumph in the Name of the L
ORD our God: * the LORD perform all thy petitions.
    6 Now know I that the L
ORD helpeth his anointed, and will hear him from his holy heaven, * even with the wholesome strength of his right hand.
    7 Some put their trust in chariots, and some in horses; * but we will remember the Name of the L
ORD our God.
    8 They are brought down and fallen; * but we are risen and stand upright.  
9 Save,LORD; and hear us, O King of heaven, * when we call upon thee.

The Collect.

OLORD, we beseech thee to keep thy Church and household continually in thy true religion; that they who do lean only upon the hope of thy heavenly grace may evermore be defended by thy mighty power; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Epistle. Col. iii. 12.

PUT on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

The Gradual   Ps 126:5-6 

 RESTORE our fortunes, O Lord, * as the rivers in the South.
6 They that sow in tears * shall reap in joy.

The Alleluia Ps 126:7

Alleluia! Alleluia! He that now goeth on his way weeping, and beareth forth his seed, * shall doubtless come again with joy, and bring his sheaves with him. Alleluia!

The Gospel. St. Matt. xiii. 24.

THE kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?. But he said, Nay lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

2nd Evensong
The Psalms Appointed

The Readings
Num 23:1-26 & Acts 5:1-11

The Antiphon for the Magnificat
Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: * but gather the wheat into my barn.

Wednesday after the Fifth Sunday after Epiphany

Holy Communion

The Epistle  1 Cor. vii. 1-5

Brethren, it is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

The Gospel  Luke ix. 57-62

At that time, it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house. And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
