[Cantor] O Lord, open thou our lips.
[Choir] And our mouth shall show forth thy praise.
[Cantor] O God, make speed to save us.
[Choir] O Lord, make haste to help us.
[Cantor] Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
[Choir] As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

[Cantor] Praise ye the Lord.
[Choir] The Lord's Name be praised.

After the Creed is said, the Responses:

[Cantor] The Lord be with you.
[Choir] And with thy spirit.
[Cantor] Let us pray.

[Choir] Lord, have mercy upon us. Christ, have mercy upon us. Lord, have mercy upon us.

[Choir] Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. Amen.


[Cantor] O Lord, shew thy mercy upon us.
[Choir] And grant us thy salvation.
[Cantor] O Lord, save the Queen.
[Choir] And mercifully hear us when we call upon thee.
[Cantor] Endue thy Ministers with righteousness.
[Choir] And make thy chosen people joyful.
[Cantor] O Lord, save thy people.
[Choir] And bless thine inheritance.
[Cantor] Give peace in our time, O Lord.
[Choir] Because there is none other that fighteth for us, but only thou, O God.
[Cantor] O God, make clean our hearts within us.
[Choir]And take not thy Holy Spirit from us.


And, after each collect:

[Choir] Amen.
