Ant. Tibi soli * peccávi, Dómine, miserére mei.
Psalmus 50 [1]
50:3 Miserére mei, Deus, * secúndum magnam misericórdiam tuam.
50:3 Et secúndum multitúdinem miseratiónum tuárum, * dele iniquitátem meam.
50:4 Ámplius lava me ab iniquitáte mea: * et a peccáto meo munda me.
50:5 Quóniam iniquitátem meam ego cognósco: * et peccátum meum contra me est semper.
50:6 Tibi soli peccávi, et malum coram te feci: * ut justificéris in sermónibus tuis, et vincas cum judicáris.
50:7 Ecce enim, in iniquitátibus concéptus sum: * et in peccátis concépit me mater mea.
50:8 Ecce enim, veritátem dilexísti: * incérta et occúlta sapiéntiæ tuæ manifestásti mihi.
50:9 Aspérges me hyssópo, et mundábor: * lavábis me, et super nivem dealbábor.
50:10 Audítui meo dabis gáudium et lætítiam: * et exsultábunt ossa humiliáta.
50:11 Avérte fáciem tuam a peccátis meis: * et omnes iniquitátes meas dele.
50:12 Cor mundum crea in me, Deus: * et spíritum rectum ínnova in viscéribus meis.
50:13 Ne proícias me a fácie tua: * et spíritum sanctum tuum ne áuferas a me.
50:14 Redde mihi lætítiam salutáris tui: * et spíritu principáli confírma me.
50:15 Docébo iníquos vias tuas: * et ímpii ad te converténtur.
50:16 Líbera me de sanguínibus, Deus, Deus salútis meæ: * et exsultábit lingua mea justítiam tuam.
50:17 Dómine, lábia mea apéries: * et os meum annuntiábit laudem tuam.
50:18 Quóniam si voluísses sacrifícium, dedíssem útique: * holocáustis non delectáberis.
50:19 Sacrifícium Deo spíritus contribulátus: * cor contrítum, et humiliátum, Deus, non despícies.
50:20 Benígne fac, Dómine, in bona voluntáte tua Sion: * ut ædificéntur muri Jerúsalem.
50:21 Tunc acceptábis sacrifícium justítiæ, oblatiónes, et holocáusta: * tunc impónent super altáre tuum vítulos.

Psalms {Laudes:2 Psalms and antiphons from the Psalter for the day of the week}
Ant. Before thee only have I sinned, * O Lord, have mercy on me.
Psalm 50 [1]
50:3 Have mercy on me, O God, * according to thy great mercy.
50:3 And according to the multitude of thy tender mercies * blot out my iniquity.
50:4 Wash me yet more from my iniquity, * and cleanse me from my sin.
50:5 For I know my iniquity, * and my sin is always before me.
50:6 To thee only have I sinned, and have done evil before thee: * that thou mayst be justified in thy words, and mayst overcome when thou art judged.
50:7 For behold I was conceived in iniquities; * and in sins did my mother conceive me.
50:8 For behold thou hast loved truth: * the uncertain and hidden things of thy wisdom thou hast made manifest to me.
50:9 Thou shalt sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be cleansed: * thou shalt wash me, and I shall be made whiter than snow.
50:10 To my hearing thou shalt give joy and gladness: * and the bones that have been humbled shall rejoice.
50:11 Turn away thy face from my sins, * and blot out all my iniquities.
50:12 Create a clean heart in me, O God: * and renew a right spirit within my bowels.
50:13 Cast me not away from thy face; * and take not thy holy spirit from me.
50:14 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation, * and strengthen me with a perfect spirit.
50:15 I will teach the unjust thy ways: * and the wicked shall be converted to thee.
50:16 Deliver me from blood, O God, thou God of my salvation: * and my tongue shall extol thy justice.
50:17 O Lord, thou wilt open my lips: * and my mouth shall declare thy praise.
50:18 For if thou hadst desired sacrifice, I would indeed have given it: * with burnt offerings thou wilt not be delighted.
50:19 A sacrifice to God is an afflicted spirit: * a contrite and humbled heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
50:20 Deal favourably, O Lord, in thy good will with Sion; * that the walls of Jerusalem may be built up.
50:21 Then shalt thou accept the sacrifice of justice, oblations and whole burnt offerings: * then shall they lay calves upon thy altar.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Ant. Before thee only have I sinned, O Lord, have mercy on me.
Ant. Intret * orátio mea, in conspéctu tuo, Dómine.
Psalmus 87 [2]
87:2 Dómine, Deus salútis meæ: * in die clamávi, et nocte coram te.
87:3 Intret in conspéctu tuo orátio mea: * inclína aurem tuam ad precem meam:
87:4 Quia repléta est malis ánima mea: * et vita mea inférno appropinquávit.
87:5 Æstimátus sum cum descendéntibus in lacum: * factus sum sicut homo sine adjutório, inter mórtuos liber.
87:6 Sicut vulneráti dormiéntes in sepúlcris, quorum non es memor ámplius: * et ipsi de manu tua repúlsi sunt.
87:7 Posuérunt me in lacu inferióri: * in tenebrósis, et in umbra mortis.
87:8 Super me confirmátus est furor tuus: * et omnes fluctus tuos induxísti super me.
87:9 Longe fecísti notos meos a me: * posuérunt me abominatiónem sibi.
87:9 Tráditus sum, et non egrediébar: * óculi mei languérunt præ inópia.
87:10 Clamávi ad te, Dómine, tota die: * expándi ad te manus meas.
87:11 Numquid mórtuis fácies mirabília: * aut médici suscitábunt, et confitebúntur tibi?
87:12 Numquid narrábit áliquis in sepúlcro misericórdiam tuam, * et veritátem tuam in perditióne?
87:13 Numquid cognoscéntur in ténebris mirabília tua, * et justítia tua in terra obliviónis?
87:14 Et ego ad te, Dómine, clamávi: * et mane orátio mea prævéniet te.
87:15 Ut quid, Dómine, repéllis oratiónem meam: * avértis fáciem tuam a me?
87:16 Pauper sum ego, et in labóribus a juventúte mea: * exaltátus autem, humiliátus sum et conturbátus.
87:17 In me transiérunt iræ tuæ: * et terróres tui conturbavérunt me.
87:18 Circumdedérunt me sicut aqua tota die: * circumdedérunt me simul.
87:19 Elongásti a me amícum et próximum: * et notos meos a miséria.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Intret orátio mea, in conspéctu tuo, Dómine.
Ant. Let my prayer * come in before thee.
Psalm 87 [2]
87:2 Lord, the God of my salvation: * I have cried in the day, and in the night before thee.
87:3 Let my prayer come in before thee: * incline thy ear to my petition.
87:4 For my soul is filled with evils: * and my life hath drawn nigh to hell.
87:5 I am counted among them that go down to the pit: * I am become as a man without help, free among the dead.
87:6 Like the slain sleeping in the sepulchres, whom thou rememberest no more: * and they are cast off from thy hand.
87:7 They have laid me in the lower pit: * in the dark places, and in the shadow of death.
87:8 Thy wrath is strong over me: * and all thy waves thou hast brought in upon me.
87:9 Thou hast put away my acquaintance far from me: * they have set me an abomination to themselves.
87:9 I was delivered up, and came not forth: * my eyes languished through poverty.
87:10 All the day I cried to thee, O Lord: * I stretched out my hands to thee.
87:11 Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? * or shall physicians raise to life, and give praise to thee?
87:12 Shall any one in the sepulchre declare thy mercy: * and thy truth in destruction?
87:13 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark; * and thy justice in the land of forgetfulness?
87:14 But I, O Lord, have cried to thee: * and in the morning my prayer shall prevent thee.
87:15 Lord, why castest thou off my prayer: * why turnest thou away thy face from me?
87:16 I am poor, and in labours from my youth: * and being exalted have been humbled and troubled.
87:17 Thy wrath hath come upon me: * and thy terrors have troubled me.
87:18 They have come round about me like water all the day: * they have compassed me about together.
87:19 Friend and neighbour thou hast put far from me: * and my acquaintance, because of misery.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Ant. Let my prayer come in before thee.
Ant. Dómine, * refúgium factus es nobis.
Psalmus 89 [3]
89:1 Dómine, refúgium factus es nobis: * a generatióne in generatiónem.
89:2 Priúsquam montes fíerent, aut formarétur terra et orbis: * a sǽculo et usque in sǽculum tu es, Deus.
89:3 Ne avértas hóminem in humilitátem: * et dixísti: Convertímini, fílii hóminum.
89:4 Quóniam mille anni ante óculos tuos, * tamquam dies hestérna, quæ prætériit,
89:5 Et custódia in nocte, * quæ pro níhilo habéntur, eórum anni erunt.
89:6 Mane sicut herba tránseat, mane flóreat, et tránseat: * véspere décidat, indúret et aréscat.
89:7 Quia defécimus in ira tua, * et in furóre tuo turbáti sumus.
89:8 Posuísti iniquitátes nostras in conspéctu tuo: * sǽculum nostrum in illuminatióne vultus tui.
89:9 Quóniam omnes dies nostri defecérunt: * et in ira tua defécimus.
89:9 Anni nostri sicut aránea meditabúntur: * dies annórum nostrórum in ipsis, septuagínta anni.
89:10 Si autem in potentátibus, octogínta anni: * et ámplius eórum, labor et dolor.
89:10 Quóniam supervénit mansuetúdo: * et corripiémur.
89:11 Quis novit potestátem iræ tuæ: * et præ timóre tuo iram tuam dinumeráre?
89:12 Déxteram tuam sic notam fac: * et erudítos corde in sapiéntia.
89:13 Convértere, Dómine, úsquequo? * et deprecábilis esto super servos tuos.
89:14 Repléti sumus mane misericórdia tua: * et exsultávimus, et delectáti sumus ómnibus diébus nostris.
89:15 Lætáti sumus pro diébus, quibus nos humiliásti: * annis, quibus vídimus mala.
89:16 Réspice in servos tuos, et in ópera tua: * et dírige fílios eórum.
89:17 Et sit splendor Dómini, Dei nostri, super nos, et ópera mánuum nostrárum dírige super nos: * et opus mánuum nostrárum dírige.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Dómine, refúgium factus es nobis.
Ant. Lord, * thou hast been our refuge.
Psalm 89 [3]
89:1 Lord, thou hast been our refuge * from generation to generation.
89:2 Before the mountains were made, or the earth and the world was formed; * from eternity and to eternity thou art God.
89:3 Turn not man away to be brought low: * and thou hast said: Be converted, O ye sons of men.
89:4 For a thousand years in thy sight * are as yesterday, which is past.
89:5 And as a watch in the night, * things that are counted nothing, shall their years be.
89:6 In the morning man shall grow up like grass; in the morning he shall flourish and pass away: * in the evening he shall fall, grow dry, and wither.
89:7 For in thy wrath we have fainted away: * and are troubled in thy indignation.
89:8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thy eyes: * our life in the light of thy countenance.
89:9 For all our days are spent; * and in thy wrath we have fainted away.
89:9 Our years shall be considered as a spider: * the days of our years in them are threescore and ten years.
89:10 But if in the strong they be fourscore years: * and what is more of them is labour and sorrow.
89:10 For mildness is come upon us: * and we shall be corrected.
89:11 Who knoweth the power of thy anger, * and for thy fear can number thy wrath?
89:12 So make thy right hand known: * and men learned in heart, in wisdom.
89:13 Return, O Lord, how long? * and be entreated in favour of thy servants.
89:14 We are filled in the morning with thy mercy: * and we have rejoiced, and are delighted all our days.
89:15 We have rejoiced for the days in which thou hast humbled us: * for the years in which we have seen evils.
89:16 Look upon thy servants and upon their works: * and direct their children.
89:17 And let the brightness of the Lord our God be upon us: and direct thou the works of our hands over us; * yea, the work of our hands do thou direct.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Ant. Lord, thou hast been our refuge.

15:2 Fortitúdo mea, et laus mea Dóminus, * et factus est mihi in salútem.
15:3 Iste Deus meus, et glorificábo eum: * Deus patris mei, et exaltábo eum.
15:4 Dóminus quasi vir pugnátor, Omnípotens nomen ejus. * Currus Pharaónis et exércitum ejus projécit in mare.
15:5 Elécti príncipes ejus submérsi sunt in Mari Rubro: * abýssi operuérunt eos, descendérunt in profúndum quasi lapis.
15:6 Déxtera tua, Dómine, magnificáta est in fortitúdine: déxtera tua, Dómine, percússit inimícum. * Et in multitúdine glóriæ tuæ deposuísti adversários tuos:
15:7 Misísti iram tuam, quæ devorávit eos sicut stípulam. * Et in spíritu furóris tui congregátæ sunt aquæ:
15:8 Stetit unda fluens, * congregátæ sunt abýssi in médio mari.
15:9 Dixit inimícus: Pérsequar et comprehéndam, * dívidam spólia, implébitur ánima mea:
15:10 Evaginábo gládium meum, * interfíciet eos manus mea.
15:11 Flavit spíritus tuus, et opéruit eos mare: * submérsi sunt quasi plumbum in aquis veheméntibus.
15:12 Quis símilis tui in fórtibus, Dómine? * quis símilis tui, magníficus in sanctitáte, terríbilis atque laudábilis, fáciens mirabília?
15:13 Extendísti manum tuam, et devorávit eos terra. * Dux fuísti in misericórdia tua pópulo quem redemísti:
15:14 Et portásti eum in fortitúdine tua, * ad habitáculum sanctum tuum.
15:15 Ascendérunt pópuli, et iráti sunt: * dolóres obtinuérunt habitatóres Philísthiim.
15:16 Tunc conturbáti sunt príncipes Edom, robústos Moab obtínuit tremor: * obriguérunt omnes habitatóres Chánaan.
15:17 Írruat super eos formído et pavor, * in magnitúdine brácchii tui:
15:18 Fiant immóbiles quasi lapis, donec pertránseat pópulus tuus, Dómine, * donec pertránseat pópulus tuus iste, quem possedísti.
15:19 Introdúces eos, et plantábis in monte hereditátis tuæ, * firmíssimo habitáculo tuo quod operátus es, Dómine:
15:20 Sanctuárium tuum, Dómine, quod firmavérunt manus tuæ. * Dóminus regnábit in ætérnum et ultra.
15:21 Ingréssus est enim eques Phárao cum cúrribus et equítibus ejus in mare: * et redúxit super eos Dóminus aquas maris:
15:22 Fílii autem Israël ambulavérunt per siccum * in médio ejus.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Let us sing unto the Lord, * for He hath triumphed gloriously.
Canticle of Moses [4]
(Canticle of Moses * Exod. 15:1-22)
15:1 Let us sing to the Lord: for he is gloriously magnified, * the horse and the rider he hath thrown into the sea.
15:2 The Lord is my strength and my praise, * and he is become salvation to me:
15:3 He is my God and I will glorify him: * the God of my father, and I will exalt him.
15:4 The Lord is as a man of war, Almighty is his name. * Pharao’s chariots and his army he hath cast into the sea:
15:5 His chosen captains are drowned in the Red Sea. * The depths have covered them, they are sunk to the bottom like a stone.
15:6 Thy right hand, O Lord, is magnified in strength: thy right hand, O Lord, hath slain the enemy. * And in the multitude of thy glory thou hast put down thy adversaries:
15:7 Thou hast sent thy wrath, which hath devoured them like stubble. * And with the blast of thy anger the waters were gathered together:
15:8 The flowing water stood, * the depths were gathered together in the midst of the sea.
15:9 The enemy said: I will pursue and overtake, * I will divide the spoils, my soul shall have its fill:
15:10 I will draw my sword, * my hand shall slay them.
15:11 Thy wind blew and the sea covered them: * they sunk as lead in the mighty waters.
15:12 Who is like to thee, among the strong, O Lord? * who is like to thee, glorious in holiness, terrible and praiseworthy, doing wonders?
15:13 Thou stretchedst forth thy hand, and the earth swallowed them. * In thy mercy thou hast been a leader to the people which thou hast redeemed:
15:14 And in thy strength thou hast carried them * to thy holy habitation.
15:15 Nations rose up, and were angry: * sorrows took hold on the inhabitants of Philisthiim.
15:16 Then were the princes of Edom troubled, trembling seized on the stout men of Moab: * all the inhabitants of Chanaan became stiff.
15:17 Let fear and dread fall upon them, * in the greatness of thy arm:
15:18 Let them become unmoveable as a stone, until thy people, O Lord, pass by: * until this thy people pass by, which thou hast possessed.
15:19 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thy inheritance, * in thy most firm habitation which thou hast made, O Lord;
15:20 Thy sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have, established. * The Lord shall reign for ever and ever.
15:21 For Pharao went in on horseback with his chariots and horsemen into the sea: * and the Lord brought back upon them the waters of the sea:
15:22 But the children of Israel walked on dry ground * in the midst thereof.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Vox clara ecce íntonat,
Obscúra quæque íncrepat:
Pellántur éminus sómnia;
Ab æthre Christus prómicat.

Mens jam resúrgat tórpida
Quæ sorde exstat sáucia;
Sidus refúlget jam novum,
Ut tollat omne nóxium.

E sursum Agnus míttitur
Laxáre gratis débitum:
Omnes pro indulgéntia
Vocem demus cum lácrimis,

Secúndo ut cum fúlserit,
Mundúmque horror cínxerit,
Non pro reátu púniat,
Sed nos pius tunc prótegat.

Isa 2:3

Hark, a herald voice is calling;
“Christ is nigh,” it seems to say;
“Cast away the dreams of darkness,
O ye children of the day.”

Startled at the solemn warning,
Let the earth-bound soul arise;
Christ, her sun, all sloth dispelling,
Shines upon the morning skies.

Lo, the Lamb, so long expected,
Comes with pardon down from heaven;
Let us haste, with tears of sorrow,
One and all to be forgiven.

So when next he comes with glory,
Wrapping all the earth in fear,
May he then as our defender
On the clouds of heaven appear.

Honour, glory, virtue, merit,
To the Father and the Son,
With the co-eternal Spirit,
While eternal ages run.

V. A voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord.
R. Make straight his paths.
