VI. SUNDAY after PENTECOST. INTROIT. Ps. xxvii. Dominus fortitudo, &c.

THE Lord is the strength of his people; the Protector of the Salvation of his anointed. Save, o Lord, thy people, and bless thy inheritance, and govern them for ever. Ps. To thee, O Lord, will I cry out. O my God, be not silent: refuse not to answer me, lest I become like those who descend into the pit.

V. Glory. COLLECT. Deus virtutum. O God of all power to whom entirely belongeth whatever is best : implant in our hearts the love of thy name, and grant uis an increase of religion that thou mayest improve in us what is good, and preserve what thou thus improvest by the practice of piety. Thro'.

EPISTLE. Rom. vi. 3. Brethren: All we who are baptized in Christ Jesus, are baptized in his death. For we are buried together with him by baptism unto death; that as Christ is risen from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we also may walk in

flewness of life. For if we have been planted tom 12? Sether in the likeness of his death, we shall also be

in the likeness of his resurrection. Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin may be destroyed, and that we may serve sin no longer. For he that is dead is justified from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall live also together with Christ. Knowing that Christ, rising again from the dead, dieth now no more, death shall no more have dominion over him. For in that he died to sin, he died once : but in that le liveth, he liveth unto God. So do you also recka na yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

EPISTLÉ. Rom. vi. 19. Brethren: I speak a human thing, because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as you have yielded your members to serve uncleanness and iniquity unto iniquity; so now yield your members to serve justice, unto sanctification.

But the grace of God, life everlasting in Christ Jesus our Lord.
