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.


Day 1.

Morning Prayer.

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 ?
ORD, how are they increased that | trouble me :

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.
