Exultate justi in Domino. Psalm xxxiii.

REIOICE in the Lorde, O ye righteous : for it becommeth well the iuste to be thankfull.
    Prayse the Lorde with harpe : syng psalmes unto him wyth the lute and instrumente of ten stringes.
    Syng unto the Lorde a new song : sing prayses lustely (unto him) with a good courage.
    For the worde of the Lord is true : and al his workes are faythfull.
    He loueth ryghteousnes and iudgement : the earth is full of the goodnes of the Lorde.
    By the worde of the Lord were the heauens made : and all the hoostes of them, by the breath of hys mouth.
    He gathereth the waters of the sea together, as it were upon a heap : and layeth up the depe as it were in a treasure-house.
    Let all the earth feare the Lorde : stande in awe of him, all ye that dwell in the worlde.
    For he spake and it was done : he commaunded, and it stoode faste.
    The Lorde bringeth the counsayll of the heatehen to noughte: and maketh the deuyses of the people to be of none effect, (and casteth out the counsailes of prynces.)
    The counsaill of the Lord shal endure for euer : and the thoughtes of hys harte from generacion to generacion.
    Blessed are the people whose God is the Lorde Jehouah : and blessed are the folke that haue chosen hym to be theyr inheritaunce.
    The lorde loked downe from heauen, and beheld all the chyldren of menne : from the habitacion of hys dwelling, he considereth all them that dwell in the earth.
    He fashyoneth all the heartes of them : and understandeth all theyr workes.
    There is no king that can be saued by the multitude of an hoste : neyther is anye myghtye man delyuered by muche strength.
    A horse is counted but a vayne thyng to saue a man : neither shall he deliuer any man by hys great strength.
    Beholde, the eye of the lorde is upon them that feare him : and upon them that put theyr truste in his mercye.
    To deliuer theyr soules from deathe : and to feade them in the tyme of derth.
    Our soule hath paciently taryed for the lorde : for he is our helpe and our shielde.
    For our heart shall reioyce in him : because we hoped in his holy name.
    Let thy mercifull kyndnes, O lorde, be upon us : lyke as we haue put our trust in thee.
    Glory be to the father, &c.
    As it was in the beginning, &c.

The Collect.
GOD, whiche as upon this daye haste taughte the heartes of thy faithful people, by the sending to them the lyght of thy holy spirite; graunte us by the same spririte to haue a right iudgement in al thinges, and euermore to reioyce in hys holy coumforte; through the merites of Christ Jesus our sauiour; who liueth and reigneth with thee, in the unitie of the same spirite, one God, worlde without end.

The Epistle. Acts. ii.
WHEN the fifie dayes were come to an end, they were al with one accorde together in one place. And sodenly there came a soud from heauen, as it had bene the comming of a mighty wind, and it filled al the house where they sate. And there appered unto them clouen tonges, like as they had bene of fyre, and it sate upon eche one of them; and they were al filled with the holy gost, and began to speake with other tonges, euen as the same spirite gaue them utterauce. There were dwelling at Jerusalem Jewes, deuout men out of euery nacion of them that are under heauen. When thys was noysed about, the multitude came together and were astonied, because that euery man heard them speake with his owne language. They wondred all, and merueiled, saying among themselfes; behold, are not al these, which speake, of Galile? And how heare we euery ma his owne tong, wherein we were borne? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the inhabiters of Mesopotamia, and of Jewry, and of Capadocia, of Pontus and Asia, Phrigia and Pamphilia, of Egipte, and of the parties of Libia, which is beside Siren, and straungers of Rome, Jewes and Proselites, Grekes and Arrabians, we haue heard them speake in our owne tongues the great weorkes of God.

The Gospel. John xiv.
JESUS sayde unto his disciples; If ye loue me kepe my commaundementes, and I wil pray the father, and he shall geue you another coforter, that he maye abyde with you for euer; euen the spirite of trueth, whome the worlde cannot receiue, because the worlde seeth him not, neither knoweth hym. But ye knowe hym; for he dwelleth with you, and shalbe in you. I will not leaue you coumfortles; but will come to you. Yet a litle while, and the worlde seeth me no more; but ye se me. For I lyue, and ye shall lyue. That daye shall ye knowe that I am in my father, and you in me, and I in you. He that hath my commaundementes, and kepeth them, the same is he that loueth me. And he that loueth me, shalbe loueth of my father; and I will loue him, and wil shewe mine owne selfe unto hym.
