Judah and Jerusalem, fear not, nor be dismayed; tomorrow go ye forth, and the Lord, he will be with you.
Stand ye still, and ye shall see the salvation of the Lord.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
Tomorrow go ye forth, and the Lord, he will be with you.
The Mattins Responsory finds its counterpart in the Vesper Responsory which has been adapted to suitable words by Christopher Dearnley. The music is virtually the same as for the Mattins Responsory and is a call-to-arms, as it were, for the congregation at the Advent Carol Service.
