1 Cor. v.


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.



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 un(godly shall | perish.


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.
