John xv. 1, 7.

Α'

T that time; Jesus said to his disciples: I am the true vine; and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me, that beareth not fruit, he will take away; and every one that beareth fruit he will purge it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now you are clean by reason of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in me; and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you the branches; he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit; for without me you can do nothing. If any one abide not in me; he shall be cast forth as a branch, and shall wither, and they shall gather him up, and cast him into the fire, and he burneth. If you abide in me, and my word abide in you, you shall ask whatever you will, and it shall be done unto you. OFFERTORY. Psalm 1xxxviii.

Confitebuntur cœli mirabilia tua, Domine, & veritatem tuam in ecclesià sanctorum, Alleluia, Alleluia.

The heavens shall acknowledge thy wonders, O Lord, and thy truth in the assembly of the saints, Alleluia, Alleluia.

Benedictio Domini.

T

HE blessing of the Lord is on the head of the righteous man. Therefore did the Lord give him an inheritance, and assign him a part among the twelve tribes; and he found grace in the sight of all flesh. And he made him great to the terror of his enemies, and by his words he tamed monsters. He rendered him glorious in the presence of kings, and gave him his commandments in the sight of his people, and shewed him his glory. For his faith and meekness he sanctified him, and made choice of him from among all flesh; and publicly gave him his precepts, and the law of life and discipline, and highly exalted him. He settled with him an eternal covenant, and encompassed him with the girdle of righteousness; and the Lord hath put on him a crown of glory.

GRADUAL. Psalm xci. Justus, ut palma.

TH

HE righteous man shall flourish like the Palm-tree; he shall thrive like the Cedar of Libanus in the house of the Lord. V. To declare thy mercies in the morning, and the fulfilling of thy promise by night.
