Collect for the Day
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 your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
1 O Lord our governor: how glorious is your name in all the world!
2 Your majesty above the heavens is praised: out of the mouths of babes at the breast.
3 You have founded a stronghold against your foes: that you might still the enemy and the avenger.
4 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers: the moon and the stars that you have ordained,
5 What is man, that you should be mindful of him: the son of man, that you should seek him out?
6 You have made him little lower than the angels: and crown him with glory and honour.
7 You have given him dominion over the works of your hands: and put all things under his feet,
8 All sheep and oxen: even the wild beasts of the field,
9 The birds of the air, the fish of the sea: and whatsoever moves in the paths of the sea.
10 O Lord our governor: how glorious is your name in all the world!
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.
