Ant. The Lord, the King of Virgins, * O come, let us worship.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Virgins, * O come, let us worship.
Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our saviour. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Virgins, * O come, let us worship.
For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. For the Lord will not cast off his people: for in his hand are all the ends of the earth, and the heights of the mountains are his.
Ant. O come, let us worship.
For the sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. (genuflect) Come let us adore and fall down: and weep before the Lord that made us: For he is the Lord our God: and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Virgins, * O come, let us worship.
Today if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts: As in the provocation, according to the day of temptation in the wilderness: where your fathers tempted me, they proved me, and saw my works.
Ant. O come, let us worship.
Forty years long was I offended with that generation, and I said: These always err in heart. And these men have not known my ways: so I swore in my wrath that they shall not enter into my rest.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Virgins, * O come, let us worship.

Hymnus {Votiva}
Vírginis Proles, Opiféxque Matris,
Virgo quem gessit, peperítque Virgo:
Vírginis festum cánimus trophǽum
Accipe votum.

Hæc tua Virgo dúplici beáta
Sorte, dum gestit frágilem domáre
Córporis sexum, dómuit cruéntum
Corpóre sǽclum.

Unde nec mortem, nec amíca mortis
Sæva pœnárum génera pavéscens,
Sánguine fuso méruit sacrátum
Scándere cælum.

Huius obténtu, Deus alme, nostris
Parce iam culpis, vítia remíttens,
Quo tibi puri resonémus almum
Péctoris hymnum.

Glória Patri genitǽque Proli,
Et tibi compar utriúsque semper
Spíritus alme, Deus unus, omni
Témpore sæcli.
Amen.
Hymn {Votive}
Son of a virgin, maker of thy mother,
Thou, rod and blossom from a stem unstainèd,
While we a Virgin's triumphs are rehearsing,
Hear our petition!

Lo, on thy handmaid fell a two-fold blessing,
Who, in her body vanquishing the weakness,
In that same body, grace from heaven obtaining,
Bore the world witness.

Death, nor the rending pains of death appalled her;
Bondage and torment found her undefeated:
So by the shedding of her blood attained she
Heavenly guerdon.

Fountain of mercy, hear the prayers she offers;
Purge our offences, pardon our transgressions,
So that hereafter we to thee may render
Praise with thanksgiving.

Thou, the All-Father, thou, the One-Begotten,
Thou, Holy Spirit, Three in One co-equal,
Glory be henceforth thine through all the ages,
World without ending.
Amen.

De Epístola prima beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Corínthios
1 Cor 7:25-31
25 De virgínibus præcéptum Dómini non hábeo: consílium autem do, tamquam misericórdiam consecútus a Dómino, ut sim fidélis.
26 Exístimo ergo hoc bonum esse propter instántem necessitátem, quóniam bonum est hómini sic esse.
27 Alligátus es uxóri? noli quǽrere solutiónem. Solútus es ab uxóre? noli quǽrere uxórem.
28 Si autem accéperis uxórem, non peccásti. Et si núpserit virgo, non peccávit. Tribulatiónem tamen carnis habébunt huiúsmodi. Ego autem vobis parco.
29 Hoc ítaque dico, fratres: Tempus breve est: relíquum est, ut et qui habent uxóres, tamquam non habéntes sint;
30 Et qui flent, tamquam non fléntes; et qui gaudent, tamquam non gaudéntes; et qui emunt, tamquam non possidéntes;
31 Et qui utúntur hoc mundo, tamquam non utántur; prǽterit enim figúra huius mundi.
℣. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nostri.
℟. Deo grátias.

℟. Veni, elécta mea, et ponam in te thronum meum
* Quia concupívit Rex spéciem tuam.
℣. Spécie tua et pulchritúdine tua inténde, próspere procéde, et regna.
℟. Quia concupívit Rex spéciem tuam.
℣. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Eternal Father bless us with an eternal blessing. Amen.

Lesson from the first letter of St. Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians
1 Cor 7:25-31
25 Now concerning virgins, I have no commandment of the Lord; but I give counsel, as having obtained mercy of the Lord, to be faithful.
26 I think therefore that this is good for the present necessity, that it is good for a man so to be.
27 Art thou bound to a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
28 But if thou take a wife, thou hast not sinned. And if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned: nevertheless, such shall have tribulation of the flesh. But I spare you.
29 This therefore I say, brethren; the time is short; it remaineth, that they also who have wives, be as if they had none;
30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as if they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;
31 And they that use this world, as if they used it not: for the fashion of this world passeth away.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
℟. Thanks be to God.

℟. Come, O My chosen one, and I will establish My throne in thee;
* For the King hath greatly desired thy beauty.
℣. In thy comeliness and thy beauty, go forward, fare prosperously, and reign.
℟. For the King hath greatly desired thy beauty.
℣. Iube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Unigénitus Dei Fílius nos benedícere et adiuváre dignétur. Amen.

1 Cor 7:32-35
32 Volo autem vos sine sollicitúdine esse. Qui sine uxóre est, sollícitus est quæ Dómini sunt, quómodo pláceat Deo.
33 Qui autem cum uxóre est, sollícitus est quæ sunt mundi, quómodo pláceat uxóri; et divísus est.
34 Et múlier innúpta et virgo cógitat quæ Dómini sunt, ut sit sancta córpore et spíritu. Quæ autem nupta est, cógitat quæ sunt mundi, quómodo pláceat viro.
35 Porro hoc ad utilitátem vestram dico, non ut láqueum vobis iníciam, sed ad id, quod honéstum est, et quod facultátem prǽbeat sine impediménto Dóminum obsecrándi.
℣. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nostri.
℟. Deo grátias.

℟. Diffúsa est grátia in lábiis tuis,
* Proptérea benedíxit te Deus in ætérnum.
℣. Spécie tua et pulchritúdine tua inténde, próspere procéde, et regna.
℟. Proptérea benedíxit te Deus in ætérnum.

1 Cor 7:32-35
32 But I would have you to be without solicitude. He that is without a wife, is solicitous for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please God.
33 But he that is with a wife, is solicitous for the things of the world, how he may please his wife: and he is divided.
34 And the unmarried woman and the virgin thinketh on the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she that is married thinketh on the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
35 And this I speak for your profit: not to cast a snare upon you; but for that which is decent, and which may give you power to attend upon the Lord, without impediment.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
℟. Thanks be to God.

℟. Grace is poured into thy lips, therefore;
* God hath blessed thee for ever.
℣. In thy comeliness and thy beauty, go forward, fare prosperously, and reign.
℟. God hath blessed thee for ever.
℣. Iube, domne, benedícere.

1 Cor 7:36-40
36 Si quis autem turpem se vidéri exístimat super vírgine sua, quod sit superadúlta, et ita opórtet fíeri; quod vult fáciat: non peccat, si nubat.
37 Nam, qui státuit in corde suo firmus, non habens necessitátem, potestátem autem habens suæ voluntátis, et hoc iudicávit in corde suo, serváre vírginem suam, bene facit.
38 Ígitur et qui matrimónio iungit vírginem suam, bene facit; et qui non iungit, mélius facit.
39 Múlier alligáta est legi quanto témpore, vir eius vivit. Quod, si dormíerit vir eius, liberáta est; cui vult nubat, tantum in Dómino.
40 Beátior autem erit, si sic permánserit, secúndum meum consílium; puto autem quod et ego Spíritum Dei hábeam.
℣. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nostri.
℟. Deo grátias.

℟. Spécie tua et pulchritúdine tua

1 Cor 7:36-40
36 But if any man think that he seemeth dishonoured, with regard to his virgin, for that she is above the age, and it must so be: let him do what he will; he sinneth not, if she marry.
37 For he that hath determined being steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but having power of his own will; and hath judged this in his heart, to keep his virgin, doth well.
38 Therefore, both he that giveth his virgin in marriage, doth well; and he that giveth her not, doth better.
39 A woman is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband die, she is at liberty: let her marry to whom she will; only in the Lord.
40 But more blessed shall she be, if she so remain, according to my counsel; and I think that I also have the spirit of God.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
℟. Thanks be to God.

℟. In thy comeliness and thy beauty;
* Go forward, fare prosperously, and reign.
