The office of morning prayer shall be said in the accustomed part of the Church or Chapel unless determined otherwise by the Bishop of the Diocese. Chanbels shall remain as in time past.

Here it is to be noted that in reading Morning and Evening Prayer a priest or deacon shall wear a long and full surplice, with tippet, and the hood of his degree if he have one. Licensed lay readers shall omit the tippet and wear instead either a readers medal, or a blue scarf.

A hymn may be sung before the commencement of Morning Prayer then the minister shall begin the service by reading a sentence of Scripture.

When the wicked man turns away from the wikedness he has committed and does what is lawful and right he shall save his soul alive (Ezek 18,27)
I acknowedge my transgression and my sin is ever before me. (Ps.51,3)
Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all my misdeeds. (Ps. 51, 9)
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, will you not despise. (ps. 51, 17)

If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, God is faithful and just, to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Let us humbly confess our sins to Almighty God.

Almghty and most merciful Father,
We have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep,
We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts;
We have offended against your holy laws.
We have left undone those things that we ought to have done.
We have done those things that we ought not to have done, And there is no health in us. But you, O Lord, have mercy on us miserable offenders; Spare those, O lord, who confess their faults
