ASCENSION DAY.

From Psalms xxiv. xlvii.

IFT up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors, and the King of glory shall come in.

Who is the King of glory? the Lord strong and mighty; even the Lord mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors, and the King of glory shall come in.

Who is the King of glory? even the Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.

O clap your hands together, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.

For the Lord most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.

God is gone up with a shout; the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises unto our King, sing praises.

God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.

The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham; for the shields of the earth belong unto God: He is greatly exalted.

WHIT-SUNDAY.

From Psalms ii. lxviii.

I

WILL declare the decree; the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee.

Desire of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the utmost parts of the earth for thy possession.

Be wise now, therefore, O ye kings; be instructed, ye judges of

the earth.

Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.

The Lord gave the word; great was the company of those that published it.

Though ye have lain among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.

Thou hast ascended on high; thou hast led captivity captive; thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them.

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits; even the God of our salvation.

Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth: O sing praises unto the Lord;

To him that rideth upon the heaven of heavens, which were of old: Lo, he doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.

Ascribe the strength unto God; his excellency is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds.

O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places; the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people: Blessed be God.
