Anthems for Easter-Dap. At Morning Prayer, instead of the Psalm, 0 come let us sing,
&c. these Anthems shall be sung or said. IHRIST our passover is | sacri'ficed | for us : there
fore let us keep' the feast;
Not with the old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice' and wickedness : but with the unleavened bread of sincerity' and truth.
1 Cor. 7. YHRIST being raised from the dead, dieth' no
more : death hath no more' do min'ion over him.
For in that he died, he died | unto' sin | once : but in that he liveth, he | liveth | un'to God.
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed un'to sin : but alive unto God, through Je'sus Christ our | Lord. Rom. vi. 9. YHRIST is risen | from the dead : and become
the first fruits' of them' that slept.
For since by | man' came | death : by man came also the resursrec'tion of the dead.
For as in | Adam' all | die : even so in Christ shall all be made a live. I Cor. xv. 20.
Glory be to the Father, &c.
Psalm I. Beatus vir, qui non abiit. BLESSED is the man that hath not walked in the
counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of | sinners : and hath not sat in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord : and in his law will he exercise him'self | day' and | night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the wa'ter-side : that will bring forth his fruit in due
4 His leaf also | shall not | wither : and look, whatsoever he | do'eth, | it' shall | prosper.
5 As for the ungodly, it is not | so' with them : but they are like the chaff, which the wind scattereth away | from the face of the earth.
6 Therefore the ungodly shall not be able to stand | in' the judgement : neither the sinners in the congrega'tion of the righteous.
7 But the Lord knoweth the way | of the righteous : and the way of the ungodly shall | perish.
Psalm II. Quare fremuerunt gentes ?
' : i vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth stand up, and the rulers take | counsel together : against the Lord, I and a'gainst | his' A/nointed.
3 Let us break their | bonds' a[sunder : and cast alway' their cords - from us.
4 He that dwelleth in heaven shall | laugh them' to scorn : the Lord shall have them in' de rision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them | in' his wrath : and vex them | in' his | sore' displeasure.
6 Yet have I set my | King : upon my | ho'ly | hill' of Sion.
7 I will preach the law, whereof the Lord hath | said' un to me : Thou art my Son, this day' have | l' belgotten thee.
8 Desire of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine' in heritance : and the utmost parts of the earth' for thy' possession,
9 Thou shalt bruise them with a | rod of iron : and break them in pieces | like' a | potter's | vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, | O' ye | kings : be learned, ye that are jud'ges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord' in fear : and rejoice | un'to | him' with | reverence.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and so ye perish from the right way : if his wrath be kindled, (yea, but a little,) blessed are all they that | put their | trust in him.
Psalm III. Domine, quid multiplicati ?
many are they' that rise' a gainst me.
2 Many one there be that | say of' my soul : There is no help | for' him | in' his | God.
3 But thou, O Lord, art my' defender : thou art my worship, and the lift'er | up of' my head.
4 I did call upon the Lord | with my | voice : and he heard me out of his | ho'ly | hill.
5 I laid me down and slept, and rose up' again : for the Lord' sustain'ed | me.
6 I will not be afraid for ten thousands of the people : that have set themselves against' me round' about.
7 Up, Lord, and help me, my God : for thou smitest all mine enemies upon
the cheek-bone ; thou hast broken the teeth' of the' un godly.
8 Salvation belongeth unto' the Lord : and thy blessing | is' up on' thy people.
Psalm IV. Cum invocarem. TEAR me when I call, O God of' my | righte
ousness : thou hast set me at liberty when I was in trouble ; have mercy upon me, and hearken' un to my prayer.
2 O ye sons of men, how long will ye blaspheme mine honour : and have such pleasure in vanity, and' seek | af'ter | leasing ?
3 Know this also, that the Lord hath chosen to himself the man | that is godly : when I call upon the Lord, - | he' will | hear me.
