THE NICENE CREED. 1 We believe in one God, the Father Almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things / visi-ble and in- visible. 2 And in one Lord Jesus | Christ, The Only Begotten Son of God, begotten of His Father be- | fore — | all — |

worlds : 3 God of God, Light of Light, very God of very | God;

Be- / gotten | not — | made ; 4 Being of one substance with the Father,

By | whom all things were made; 5 Who, for us men, and for our salvation came | down from heaven,

And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, 6 And was made | man:

And was crucified also for us | under | Pontius Pilate, 7 He suffered, and was buried ; and the third day He a- | rose a- | gain

According to the Scriptures : and as- | cended | into heaven, 8 And sitteth on the right hand of the Father ; And He shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead;

whose | kingdom | shall have no end. 9 And in the Holy Ghost,

Who | spake - 1 by the prophets; 10 And one Holy, Catholic, and Apos- | tolic Church:

We acknowledge one baptism | for the · re mission of I sins: 11 We look for the resurrection of the dead,

scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord;

And in His law doth he | medi-tate | day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the / rivers • of water,

That bringeth forth his | fruit — in his season; 4 His leaf also | shall not | wither :

And whatsoever he doeth shall | prosper. 5 The ungodly I are not so:

But are like the chaff which the wind — driveth · a- | way. 6 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand · in the 1 judgment.

Nor sinners in the congre- gation of the righteous : 7 For the Lord knoweth the way • of the | righteous :

But the way of the un-| godly | shall — | perish.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
And to the | Holy | Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
World without end. Amen.

1 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is Thy name in all the earth,

Who hast set Thy | glory. a- bove the heavens! 2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast Thou ordained strength, be

cause of · Thine | enemies; That Thou mightest still the ene-my , and the a- | venger.

3 When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy | fingers,

The moon and the stars | which Thou | hast or- | dained; 4 What is man, that Thou art | mindful of him,

And the son of man | that Thou | visit-est | him ! 5 For Thou hast made him a little lower | than the angels,

Thou hast crowned | him with | glory and | honor: 6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of Thy | hands:

Thou hast put all things under his feet: 7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; the fowl of the air, and

the fish of the sea,
And whatsoever passeth | through the paths of the seas.
8 O Lord, our - Lord,

How excellent is Thy | name in / all the | earth.
Glory be to the Father, &c.

1 The Lord | is my | Shepherd ;

I shall - | not | want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in | green - | pastures:

He leadeth me be- | side the still — | waters. 3 He re-storeth • my soul :

Thou anointest my head with oil ; my | cup - | runneth | over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of · my | life:

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord for- | ever.
Glory be to the Father, and to the | Son,
And | to the | Holy | Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

They shout for joy, they also sing.
