Collect

O Lord, in this wondrous Sacrament You have left us a remembrance of Your passion. Grant that we may so receive the sacred mystery of Your body and blood that the fruits of Your redemption may continually be manifest in us; for You who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Old Testament · Exodus 12:1-14

 1And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying,

 2This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

 3Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

 4And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

 5Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

 6And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

 7And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

 8And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

 9Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.

 10And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.

 11And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD's passover.

 12For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.

 13And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

 14And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.

Epistle · 1 Cor. 11:23-32

 23For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

 24And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

 25After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

 26For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.

 27Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

 28But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

 29For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.

 30For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

 31For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

 32But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

Gospel · John 13:1-15

 1Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

 2And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;

 3Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

 4He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

 5After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.

 6Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?

 7Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

 8Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.

 9Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

 10Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

 11For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.

 12So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?

 13Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

 14If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.

 15For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

Morning Psalm · Ps. 116

 1I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.

 2Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.

 3The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.

 4Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.

 5Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

 6The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.

 7Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

 8For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.

 9I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

 10I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:

 11I said in my haste, All men are liars.

 12What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?

 13I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.

 14I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.

 15Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

 16O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.

 17I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.

 18I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.

 19In the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.

First Reading · Ex. 12:1-28

 1And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying,

 2This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

 3Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

 4And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

 5Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

 6And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

 7And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

 8And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

 9Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.

 10And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.

 11And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD's passover.

 12For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.

 13And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

 14And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.

 15Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.

 16And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.

 17And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever.

 18In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.

 19Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.

 20Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.

 21Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.

 22And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.

 23For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.

 24And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever.

 25And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the LORD will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service.

 26And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?

 27That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD's passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.

 28And the children of Israel went away, and did as the LORD had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

Evening Psalm · Ps. 70

 1MAKE HASTE, O GOD, TO DELIVER ME; MAKE HASTE TO HELP ME, O LORD.

 2Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.

 3Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.

 4Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

 5But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.

Second Reading · Heb. 5:1-14

 1For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins:

 2Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.

 3And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.

 4And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.

 5So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.

 6As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

 7Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;

 8Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

 9And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

 10Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.

 11Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.

 12For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

 13For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

 14But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
