The Collect:

Eternal Father,
when the gospel of Christ first came to England
you gloriously confirmed the faith of Alban
by making him the first to win a martyr’s crown:
grant that, following his example
and strengthened by his fellowship,
we may worship you, the living God,
and give true witness to Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Wisdom of Solomon: Wisdom 3.1-9

Psalm: Psalm 31:1-5

1 In you, O LORD, have I taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
deliver me in your righteousness.
2 Incline your ear to me;
make haste to deliver me.
3 Be my strong rock, a castle to keep me safe,
for you are my crag and my stronghold;
for the sake of your Name, lead me and guide me.
4 Take me out of the net that they have secretly set for me,
for you are my tower of strength.
5 Into your hands I commend my spirit,
for you have redeemed me,
O LORD, O God of truth.
