COLLECT

Almighty Father, you have given your only Son to die for our sins and to rise again for our justification: grant us so to put away the leaven of malice and wickedness that we may always serve you in pureness of living and truth; through the merits of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

First Reading  Acts 2: 14a, 22-32

Psalm 16

1: Preserve / me O / God:     for in / thee · have I / put my / trust. 2 I have said unto the Lord / ‘Thou · art my / God:  I have no / good a‑ /part from / thee.’ 3 All my delight is upon the godly that are / in the / land:  and upon / such · as ex‑ / cel in / virtue. 4 But as for them that turn back to / other / gods:  their / sorrows / shall be / multiplied. 5 Their drink‑offerings of blood will / I not / offer:  neither make mention of their / names up‑/on my / lips. 6 The Lord himself is the portion of mine inheritance / and          my / cup:  thou / dost main‑/tain my / lot. 7 The lines have fallen for me in / pleasant / places yea I / have a / goodly / heritage. 8 I will thank the Lord for / giving · me / counsel:   my heart also / teacheth · me / in the / night‑season. 9 I have set God / always · be‑/fore me:  he is on my right hand, / therefore · I / shall not / fall. 10 Wherefore my heart is glad and my / soul re‑ /joiceth:  my flesh / also ·  shall / rest in / safety. 11 For thou shalt not deliver me into the / power of / death:   neither shalt thou suffer thy / holy one ·  to / see the / pit. 12 Thou shalt shew me the path of life; * in thy presence is  the / fulness ·  of / joy:
