Incipit
secreto
Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidiánum da nobis hódie: et dimítte nobis débita nostra, sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris: et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem: sed líbera nos a malo. Amen.
Ave María, grátia plena; Dóminus tecum: benedícta tu in muliéribus, et benedíctus fructus ventris tui Jesus. Sancta María, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatóribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostræ. Amen.
Credo in Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, Creatórem cæli et terræ. Et in Jesum Christum, Fílium ejus únicum, Dóminum nostrum: qui concéptus est de Spíritu Sancto, natus ex María Vírgine,
passus sub Póntio Piláto, crucifíxus, mórtuus, et sepúltus: descéndit ad ínferos; tértia die resurréxit a mórtuis; ascéndit ad cælos; sedet ad déxteram Dei Patris omnipoténtis: inde ventúrus est judicáre vivos et mórtuos. Credo in Spíritum Sanctum, sanctam Ecclésiam cathólicam,
Sanctórum communiónem, remissiónem peccatórum, carnis resurrectiónem, vitam ætérnam. Amen.

Deinde, clara voce, dicitur Versus:
℣. Dómine, lábia +︎ mea apéries.
℟. Et os meum annuntiábit laudem tuam.
℣. Deus in adjutórium meum inténde.
℟. Dómine, ad adjuvándum me festína.
Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Allelúja.
Start
silently
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation: But deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried: he descended into hell; the third day he arose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven; sitteth at the right hand of God the Father almighty: from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Thereafter, with hearable voice, the Versicle is said:
℣. O Lord, +︎ open thou my lips.
℟. And my mouth shall declare thy praise.
℣. O God, come to my assistance;
℟. O Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Alleluia.

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Egrégie Doctor, Paule, mores ínstrue,
Et nostra tecum péctora in cælum trahe;
Veláta dum merídiem cernat fides,
Et solis instar sola regnet cáritas.

Sit Trinitáti sempitérna glória,
Honor, potéstas atque jubilátio,
In unitáte, quæ gubérnat ómnia,
Per univérsa sæculórum sǽcula.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Common or Feast}
Our souls' great teacher, Paul, our guide in wisdom's ways,
Teach us, our fainting hearts, to heaven's glad clime to raise,
Till faith in clearest light her bright meridian gains,
And love with sun-like fire within each bosom reigns.

All honour, might, and power, and hymns of joy we bring,
While to the Trinity eternal praise we sing;
He rules the universe in wondrous Unity,
And shall, throughout the days of all eternity.
Amen.

De Actibus Apostolórum
Act 9:1-5
1 Saulus autem adhuc spirans minárum et cædis in discípulos Dómini, accéssit ad príncipem sacerdótum,
2 Et pétiit ab eo epístolas in Damáscum ad synagógas: ut si quos invenísset hujus viæ viros ac mulíeres, vinctos perdúceret in Jerúsalem.
3 Et cum iter fáceret, cóntigit ut appropinquáret Damásco: et súbito circumfúlsit eum lux de cælo.
4 Et cadens in terram audívit vocem dicéntem sibi: Saule, Saule, quid me perséqueris?
5 Qui dixit: Quis es, dómine? Et ille: Ego sum Jesus, quem tu perséqueris: durum est tibi contra stímulum calcitráre.
℣. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
℟. Deo grátias.

℟. Qui operátus est Petro in apostolátum, operátus est et mihi inter gentes:
* Et cognovérunt grátiam Dei, quæ data est mihi.
℣. Grátia Dei in me vácua non fuit, sed grátia ejus semper in me manet.

Reading 1
Lesson from the Acts of the Apostles
Acts 9:1-5
1 And Saul, as yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest,
2 And asked of him letters to Damascus, to the synagogues: that if he found any men and women of this way, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.
3 And as he went on his journey, it came to pass that he drew nigh to Damascus; and suddenly a light from heaven shined round about him.
4 And falling on the ground, he heard a voice saying to him: Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
5 Who said: Who art thou, Lord? And he: I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. It is hard for thee to kick against the goad.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
℟. Thanks be to God.

℟. He That wrought effectually in Peter to the Apostleship, the Same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles,
* And they perceived the grace that was given unto me of the Lord Christ.
℣. The grace of God which was bestowed upon me was not in vain, but His grace abideth ever in me.
℟. And they perceived the grace that was given unto me of the Lord Christ.
℣. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Unigénitus Dei Fílius nos benedícere et adjuváre dignétur. Amen.

Act 9:6-9
6 Et tremens ac stupens dixit: Dómine, quid me vis fácere?
7 Et Dóminus ad eum: Surge, et ingrédere civitátem, et ibi dicétur tibi quid te opórteat fácere. Viri autem illi qui comitabántur cum eo, stabant stupefácti, audiéntes quidem vocem, néminem autem vidéntes.
8 Surréxit autem Saulus de terra, apertísque óculis nihil vidébat. Ad manus autem illum trahéntes, introduxérunt Damáscum.
9 Et erat ibi tribus diébus non videns, et non manducávit, neque bibit.
℣. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
℟. Deo grátias.

6 And he trembling and astonished, said: Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?

11 Et Dóminus ad eum: Surge, et vade in vicum qui vocátur Rectus: et quære in domo Judæ Saulum nómine Tarsénsem: ecce enim orat.
12 (Et vidit virum Ananíam nómine, introeúntem, et imponéntem sibi manus ut visum recípiat.)
13 Respóndit autem Ananías: Dómine, audívi a multis de viro hoc, quanta mala fécerit sanctis tuis in Jerúsalem:
14 Et hic habet potestátem a princípibus sacerdótum alligándi omnes qui ínvocant nomen tuum.
15 Dixit autem ad eum Dóminus: Vade, quóniam vas electiónis est mihi iste, ut portet nomen meum coram géntibus, et régibus, et fíliis Israël.

Acts 9:10-16
10 Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias. And the Lord said to him in a vision: Ananias. And he said: Behold I am here, Lord.
11 And the Lord said to him: Arise, and go into the street that is called Straight, and seek in the house of Judas, one named Saul of Tarsus. For behold he prayeth.
12 And he saw a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hands upon him, that he might receive his sight.
13 But Ananias answered: Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints in Jerusalem.
14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that invoke thy name.
15 And the Lord said to him: Go thy way; for this man is to me a vessel of election, to carry my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel.
16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
℟. Thanks be to God.

℟. There is laid up for me a crown of righteousness:

Sermo sancti Augustíni Epíscopi
Sermo 14 de Sanctis
Hodie de Actibus Apostolórum léctio hæc pronuntiáta est, ubi Paulus Apóstolus, ex persecutore Christianórum, annuntiátor factus est Christi. Prostrávit enim Christus persecutórem, ut fáceret Ecclésiæ doctórem: percútiens eum, et sanans; occidens, et vivíficans: occisus agnus a lupis, et fáciens agnos de lupis. Ita enim in præclára prophetía cum Jacob Pátriarcha benediceret fíliis suis (præséntes tangens, futura prospíciens) prædictum erat quod in Paulo cóntigit. Erat autem Paulus, sicut ipse testátur, de tribu Benjamin. Cum autem Jacob, benedicens fílios suos, venísset ad benedicéndum Benjamin, ait de illo: Benjamin lupus rapax.
℣. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
℟. Deo grátias.

℟. Tu es vas electiónis, sancte Paule Apóstole, prædicator veritátis in univérso mundo,
* Per quem omnes gentes cognovérunt grátiam Dei.

Reading 4
From the Sermons of St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
14th on the Saints
We have this day heard read out of the Acts of the Apostles how that the Apostle Paul, from being a persecutor of the Christians, was changed into a preacher of Christ. Christ laid low the persecutor, that He might raise him up a teacher of His Church. He smote and healed him, slew him and made him alive again. For the Lord Christ is that Lamb That was Himself slain by the wolves, and That now turneth the wolves into lambs. Now was fulfilled in Paul that which was clearly spoken in prophecy by the Patriarch Jacob, when he blessed his children, laying hands indeed on them which then were, but looking forward to the things which were yet for to come. Paul beareth witness of himself that he was of the tribe of Benjamin, Rom. xi. 1, and when Jacob blessed his sons, and came to bless Benjamin, he said: Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf. Gen. xlix. 27.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
℟. Thanks be to God.

℟. O Holy Apostle Paul, thou art a chosen vessel unto God, to preach the Gospel throughout the whole world
* Through whom all nations have known the grace of God.
℣. Pray for us to God Who hath chosen thee.
℟. Through whom all nations have known the grace of God.
℣. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Quid ergo? lupus rapax semper? Absit; sed qui mane rapit prædam, ad vésperam dividit escas. Hoc in Apóstolo Paulo impletum est, quia et de illo dictum erat. Jam, si placet, audiámus illum mane rapientem, ad vésperam escas dividéntem. Mane et véspere pósita sunt pro eo, ac si dicerétur, prius et póstea. Sic ergo accipiámus: Prius rapiet, póstea dividet escas. Atténdite raptórem: Saulus, inquit, acceptis epistolis a princípibus sacerdotum, ibat, ut ubicúmque inveníret Christiános, ad sacerdótes attraheret et adduceret, útique puniendos.
℣. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
℟. Deo grátias.

℟. Grátia Dei sum id quod sum:
* Et grátia ejus in me vacua non fuit, sed semper in me manet.
℣. Qui operátus est Petro in apostolátum, operátus est et mihi inter gentes.
℟. Et grátia ejus in me vacua non fuit, sed semper in me manet.
℣. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

Reading 5
What then? Is Benjamin a wolf that shall ravin for ever? God forbid. In the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil. This is exactly what was fulfilled in the Apostle Paul. If it please you, we will now consider how in the morning he devoured the prey, and at night divided the spoil. Here morning and evening are put for the beginning and the end. So we may read, In the beginning he shall devour the prey, and at the end he shall divide the spoil. First, then, in the beginning, he devoured the prey. So it is written that he received letters from the chief priests and went forth, that wheresoever he should find any Christians, he might bring them bound unto the priests, that they might be punished.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
℟. Thanks be to God.

℟. By the grace of God I am what I am.
* And His grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain, but abideth ever in me.
℣. He that wrought effectually in Peter to the Apostleship, the Same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles.
℟. And His grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain, but abideth ever in me.

Ibat spirans et anhélans cædes: hoc est, mane rápiens. Nam et quando lapidátus est Stéphanus primus Martyr pro nómine Christi, evidentius áderat et Saulus; et sic áderat lapidántibus, ut non ei suffíceret, si tantum suis mánibus lapidaret. Ut enim esset in ómnium lapidántium mánibus, ipse ómnium vestiménta servábat; magis sæviens omnes adjuvando, quam suis mánibus lapidando. Audívimus, mane rapiet: videámus ad vésperam quáliter dividat escas. Voce Christi prostrátus de cælo, et accípiens désuper interdictum jam sæviéndi, cécidit in fáciem suam, prius prosternendus, póstea erigendus; prius percutiendus, póstea sanandus.

He went breathing out threatenings and slaughter, yea, truly, devouring the prey. When also they stoned Stephen, the first Martyr that laid down his life for Christ's name's sake, Saul was consenting unto his death, and, as though it contented him not to stone him, he kept the clothes of all them that did it, urging them on more than if he had joined them. So in the morning he devoured the prey. How in the evening did he divide the spoil? Struck down by the voice of Christ from heaven, ravining no more, he falleth upon his face, cast down to be raised up, smitten to be healed.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.

Lest I should be exalted above measure through the greatness of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me; for this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me and the Lord said unto me: Paul, My grace is sufficient for thee.

Homilía sancti Bedæ Venerábilis Presbýteri
Homilia in Natali S. Benedicti Ep.
Perfectus ille est, qui abiens véndit ómnia quæ habet, et dat paupéribus, ac veniens sequitur Christum; habébit enim thesáurum non defícientem in cælis. Unde bene, interrogánte Petro, dixit tálibus Jesus: Amen dico vobis, quod vos qui secúti estis me, in regeneratióne, cum sederit Fílius hóminis in sede majestátis suæ, sedebitis et vos super sedes duodecim, judicántes duódecim tribus Israël. In hac quippe vita pro ejus nómine laborántes, in alia præmium speráre docuit, id est, in regeneratióne; cum videlicet in vitam immortalem fuérimus resurgéndo regenerati, qui in vitam caducam mortáliter erámus geniti.
℣. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
℟. Deo grátias.

℟. Sancte Paule Apóstole, prædicátor veritátis et doctor géntium,

From the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matt 19:27-29
In that time, Peter said to Jesus said to him: Behold we have left all things, and have followed thee: what therefore shall we have? And so on.

Sermon of the Venerable Bede, Priest (at Jarrow)
Homily for St. Benedict's Birth-day
If thou wilt be perfect, saith Christ, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and come and follow Me and thou shalt have treasure in heaven. Matth. xix. 21. Yea, treasure that passeth not away! Unto such saith Jesus, at the questioning of Peter Amen I say unto you, that ye which have followed Me, in the regeneration, when the Son of Man shall sit in the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. He taught them, which work for His Name's sake in this life, to look for their reward in another life that is, in the regeneration. In the regeneration! when we who have been born dying creatures into a dying life, shall in the resurrection be born again into an undying life.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
℟. Thanks be to God.

℟. O Holy Apostle Paul, Preacher of the truth, and teacher of the Gentiles,
* Pray for us to God, Who hath chosen thee, that we may be made worthy of the grace of God.
℣. O Holy Apostle Paul, thou art a chosen vessel unto God, and a Preacher of the truth.
℟. Pray for us to God Who hath chosen thee, that we may be made worthy of the grace of God.
℣. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Et justa prorsus retributio, ut, qui hic pro Christo humanæ glóriam celsitúdinis neglexérunt, illic a Christo judices glorificáti singuláriter cum eo assídeant qui a sequéndis ejus vestigiis nulla ratióne poterant avelli. Nemo autem putet duódecim tantum Apóstolos, quia pro Juda prævaricante Matthias eléctus est, tunc esse judicatúros; sicut nec duódecim solæ sunt tribus Israël judicándæ: alioquin tribus Levi, quæ tertiadecima est, injudicáta recedet.
℣. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
℟. Deo grátias.

Reading 8
And soothly, it is a just retribution, that they, who, while they were yet here, have for Christ's sake set no store by being great among men, should there by Christ be singularly glorified to be the assessors of His judgment-seat, even they whom nothing here could turn aside from being the followers of His footsteps. Nevertheless, let there be no man that believeth that the twelve Apostles only, among whom Matthias holdeth that place from which Judas by transgression fell, Acts i. 25, that they only shall judge, even as the twelve tribes of Israel shall not alone be judged for then were the tribe of Levi, which is the thirteenth, unjudged.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
℟. Thanks be to God.

℟. In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king was desirous to apprehend me

Et Paulus, qui tertiusdecimus est Apóstolus, judicándi sorte privábitur? cum ipse dicat: Nescitis quóniam ángelos judicábimus, quanto magis sæcularia? Sciéndum namque est, omnes, qui ad exemplum Apostolórum, sua reliquérunt ómnia et secúti sunt Christum, judices cum eo venturos, sicut étiam omne mortalium genus esse judicándum. Quia enim duodenario sæpe número solet in Scripturis univérsitas designari, per duódecim sedes Apostolórum ómnium numerositas judicántium, et, per duódecim tribus Israël, univérsitas eórum qui judicándi sunt, osténditur.

Reading 9
Moreover, then, were Paul, who is the thirteenth Apostle, deprived of all part in the judgment; whereas he saith of himself: Know ye not that we shall judge angels? How much more things that pertain to this life? But it behoveth us to know that every one who hath forsaken all and followed Christ, as did the Apostles, shall also come with Him to judgment, even as every man shall stand at His judgment seat. And the Scriptures use often to signify all by this number twelve; by the twelve thrones of the Apostles are signified the thrones of all them that shall judge; and by the twelve tribes of Israel, the whole number of them that shall be judged.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
℟. Thanks be to God.

Acts 9:1-2
And Saul, as yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest, and asked of him letters to Damascus, to the synagogues: that if he found any men and women of this way, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.
℟. Thanks be to God.

Hymn
Now let the earth with joy resound,
And heaven the chant re-echo round;
Nor heaven nor earth too high can raise
The great Apostles' glorious praise.

O ye who, throned in glory dread,
Shall judge the living and the dead,
Lights of the world forevermore!
To you the suppliant prayer we pour.

Ye close the sacred gates on high;
At your command apart they fly:
Oh! loose for us the guilty chain
We strive to break, and strive in vain.

Sickness and health your voice obey;
At your command they go or stay:
From sin's disease our souls restore;
In good confirm us more and more.

So when the world is at its end,
And Christ to judgement shall descend,
May we be called those joys to see
Prepared from all eternity.

Praise to the Father, with the Son,
And Holy Spirit, Three in One;
As ever was in ages past,
And so shall be while ages last.
Amen.

℣. O Holy Apostle Paul, thou art a chosen vessel unto God.
℟. To preach the Gospel throughout the whole world.

Now in the sun's new dawning ray,
Lowly of heart, our God we pray
That he from harm may keep us free
In all the deeds this day shall see.

May fear of him our tongues restrain,
Lest strife unguarded speech should stain:
His favouring care our guardian be,
Lest our eyes feed on vanity.

May every heart be pure from sin
And folly find no place therein:
Scant need of food, excess denied,
Wear down in us the body's pride.

That when the light of day is gone,
And night in course shall follow on.
We, free from cares the world affords,
May chant the praise that is our Lord's.

All laud to God the Father be,
All praise, Eternal Son, to thee:
All glory, as is ever meet,
To God the holy Paraclete.
Amen.

January 26th 2023, the 4th day of the Moon, were born into the better life:

At Smyrna, holy Polycarp, a disciple of the blessed Apostle John, and by him ordained Bishop of that city, having the charge of all Asia. In the reign of Mark Antony, and Lucius Aurelius Commodus, as the Pro-consul was sitting in the amphitheatre all the people cried out against Polycarp, and to please them he was cast into the fire, but forasmuch as it burned him not he was pierced with the sword, and so received the crown of martyrdom, (in the year 166.) With him there suffered also twelve others that were come from Philadelphia unto the city aforesaid.
At Hippo, in Africa, the holy martyrs Theogenes, Bishop of that city, and thirty-six others, who in the persecution under the Emperor Valerian reckoned cheaply death here in time, and received the crown of life eternal, (about the year 260.)
At Bethlehem of Judah, the holy widow Paula, mother of Eustochium, the virgin of Christ. She was of a very noble senatorial family, that gave up the world and distributed all her goods to feed the poor and betook herself to the manger of the Lord, and thence passed away into the kingdom of heaven endowed with many graces and crowned with a long martyrdom, (in the year 404.) Jerome hath written of her life, full of graces.
In the country of Paris, (in the year 685,) holy Bathildes, Queen (of France,) illustrious for her holiness and the glory of her miracles.
℣. And elsewhere many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins.
℟. Thanks be to God.

℣. Precious in the sight of the Lord

Holy Mary and all the Saints, intercede for us with the Lord, our God, so that we may merit His help and salvation, who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

Largíre lumen véspere,
Quo vita nusquam décidat,
Sed prǽmium mortis sacræ
Perénnis instet glória.

Hymn
O strength and stay upholding all creation,
Who ever dost thyself unmoved abide,
Yet day by day the light in due gradation
From hour to hour through all its changes guide:

Grant to life’s day a calm unclouded ending,
An eve untouched by shadows of decay,
The brightness of a holy death-bed blending
With dawning glories of th’ eternal day.

Hear us, O Father, gracious and forgiving,
And thou, O Christ, the co-eternal Word,
Who, with the Holy Ghost, by all things living
Now and to endless ages art adored.
Amen.

138:3 Intellexísti cogitatiónes meas de longe: * sémitam meam, et funículum meum investigásti.
138:4 Et omnes vias meas prævidísti: * quia non est sermo in lingua mea.
138:5 Ecce, Dómine, tu cognovísti ómnia novíssima, et antíqua: * tu formásti me, et posuísti super me manum tuam.
138:6 Mirábilis facta est sciéntia tua ex me: * confortáta est, et non pótero ad eam.

138:11 Et dixi: Fórsitan ténebræ conculcábunt me: * et nox illuminátio mea in delíciis meis.
138:12 Quia ténebræ non obscurabúntur a te, et nox sicut dies illuminábitur: * sicut ténebræ ejus, ita et lumen ejus.

Psalm 138 [5]
138:1 Lord, thou hast proved me, and known me: * thou hast known my sitting down, and my rising up.
138:3 Thou hast understood my thoughts afar off: * my path and my life thou hast searched out.
138:4 And thou hast foreseen all my ways: * for there is no speech on my tongue.
138:5 Behold, O Lord, thou hast known all things, the last and those of old: * thou hast formed me, and hast laid thy hand upon me.
138:6 Thy knowledge is become wonderful to me: * it is high, and I cannot reach to it.
138:7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? * or whither shall I flee from thy face?
138:8 If I ascend into heaven, thou art there: * if I descend into hell, thou art present.
138:9 If I take my wings early in the morning, * and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea:
138:10 Even there also shall thy hand lead me: * and thy right hand shall hold me.
138:11 And I said: Perhaps darkness shall cover me: * and night shall be my light in my pleasures.
138:12 But darkness shall not be dark to thee, and night shall be light as the day: * the darkness thereof, and the light thereof are alike to thee.
138:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: * thou hast protected me from my mother’s womb.
138:14 I will praise thee, for thou art fearfully magnified: * wonderful are thy works, and my soul knoweth right well.
138:15 My bone is not hidden from thee, which thou hast made in secret: * and my substance in the lower parts of the earth.
138:16 Thy eyes did see my imperfect being, and in thy book all shall be written: * days shall be formed, and no one in them.
138:17 But to me thy friends, O God, are made exceedingly honourable: * their principality is exceedingly strengthened.
138:18 I will number them, and they shall be multiplied above the sand: * I rose up and am still with thee.
138:19 If thou wilt kill the wicked, O God: * ye men of blood, depart from me:
138:20 Because you say in thought: * They shall receive thy cities in vain.
138:21 Have I not hated them, O Lord, that hated thee: * and pined away because of thy enemies?
138:22 I have hated them with a perfect hatred: * and they are become enemies to me.
138:23 Prove me, O God, and know my heart: * examine me, and know my paths.
138:24 And see if there be in me the way of iniquity: * and lead me in the eternal way.

Our souls' great teacher, Paul, our guide in wisdom's ways,
Teach us, our fainting hearts, to heaven's glad clime to raise,

While to the Trinity eternal praise we sing;
He rules the universe in wondrous Unity,
And shall, throughout the days of all eternity.

Psalm 90 [3]
90:1 He that dwelleth in the aid of the most High, * shall abide under the protection of the God of Jacob.
90:2 He shall say to the Lord: Thou art my protector, and my refuge: * my God, in him will I trust.
90:3 For he hath delivered me from the snare of the hunters: * and from the sharp word.
90:4 He will overshadow thee with his shoulders: * and under his wings thou shalt trust.
90:5 His truth shall compass thee with a shield: * thou shalt not be afraid of the terror of the night.
90:6 Of the arrow that flieth in the day, of the business that walketh about in the dark: * of invasion, or of the noonday devil.
90:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand: * but it shall not come nigh thee.
90:8 But thou shalt consider with thy eyes: * and shalt see the reward of the wicked.

90:12 In their hands they shall bear thee up: * lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
90:13 Thou shalt walk upon the asp and the basilisk: * and thou shalt trample under foot the lion and the dragon.
90:14 Because he hoped in me I will deliver him: * I will protect him because he hath known my name.
90:15 He shall cry to me, and I will hear him: * I am with him in tribulation, I will deliver him, and I will glorify him.
90:16 I will fill him with length of days; * and I will shew him my salvation.

Hymn
Before the ending of the day,
Creator of the world, we pray
That with thy wonted favor thou
Wouldst be our guard and keeper now.

From all ill dreams defend our eyes,
From nightly fears and fantasies;
Tread under foot our ghostly foe,
That no pollution we may know.

O Father, that we ask be done,
Through Jesus Christ, thine only Son;
Who, with the Holy Ghost and thee,
Doth live and reign eternally.
Amen.

Deinde dicitur secreto
Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra.

passus sub Póntio Piláto, crucifíxus, mórtuus, et sepúltus: descéndit ad ínferos; tértia die resurréxit a mórtuis; ascéndit ad cælos; sedet ad déxteram Dei Patris omnipoténtis: inde ventúrus est judicáre vivos et mórtuos. Credo in Spíritum Sanctum, sanctam Ecclésiam cathólicam,

Si post Completorium immediate sequatur Matutinum, tunc bis dicitur Pater noster, Ave Maria et Credo, pro fine videlicet Officii diei præcedentis, et pro initio Officii diei sequentis.
Thereafter is said silently
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation: But deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried: he descended into hell; the third day he arose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven; sitteth at the right hand of God the Father almighty: from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
If right after Compline, Matins is said, then Our Father, Hail Mary and Credo, are said twice, once each for end of the Office of the previous day, and for the beginning of the Office of the next.
