Anthems for Easter-Dap. At Morning Prayer, instead of the Psalm, 0 come let us sing,

&c. these Anthems shall be sung or said. HRIST 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 since'rity' and truth.

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 | liv'eth | 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 resurrec'tion of the dead.

For as in | Adam' all die : even so in Christ shall | all be made' aslive. 1 Cor. xv. 20.

Glory be to the Father, &c.

THE PSALTER.

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 - |

season.

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 un(godly shall | perish.

WHY

Psalm II. Quare fremuerunt gentes ?
THY do the heathen so furiously | rage' to ge-

ther : and why do the people ima'gine 1 a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth stand up, and the rulers take | counsel together ; against the Lord, I and a'gainst | his' Asnointed.

3 Let us break their | bonds' a sunder : and cast a way 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 dis pleasure.

6 Yet have I set my | King : upon my | hoʻly | 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' begotten thee.

8 Desire of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine' inheritance : 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 judges 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 ? LORD, how are they increased that | trouble me :

1 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 | hoʻly | 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' a bout.

7 Up, Lord, and help me, O my God : for thou smitest all mine enemies upon the cheek-bone ; thou hast broken the teeth' of | thé' un godly.

8 Salvation belongeth un to the Lord : and thy blessing | is' up on' thy | people.

Psalm IV. Cum invocarem. HEAR EAR 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, I 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.
