Oratio

APERI, Dómine, os meum ad benedicéndum nomen sanctum tuum: munda quoque cor meum ab ómnibus vanis, pervérsis et aliénis cogitatiónibus; intelléctum illúmina, afféctum inflámma, ut digne, atténte ac devóte hoc Offícium recitáre váleam, et exaudíri mérear ante conspéctum divínæ Majestátis tuæ. Per Christum, Dóminum nostrum. R. Amen.

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.

Sic dicitur Allelúja ad omnes Horas, per totum annum, præterquam a Completorio Sabbati ante Septuagesimam usque ad Completorium Feriæ IV Majoris Hebdomadæ inclusive; tunc enim dicitur:

Laus tibi, Dómine, Rex ætérnæ glóriæ.

Ant. 1 Cantáte.

Psalmus 95

[CANTÁTE] Dómino cánticum novum: cantáte Dómino, omnis terra.

Cantáte Dómino, et benedícite nómini ejus: annuntiáte de die in diem salutáre ejus.

Annuntiáte inter gentes glóriam ejus, in ómnibus pópulis mirabília ejus.

Quóniam magnus Dóminus, et laudábilis nimis: terríbilis est super omnes deos.

Quóniam omnes dii géntium dæmónia: Dóminus autem cælos fecit.

Conféssio, et pulchritúdo in conspéctu ejus: sanctimónia et magnificéntia in sanctificatióne ejus.

Afférte Dómino, pátriæ géntium, afférte Dómino glóriam et honórem: afférte Dómino glóriam nómini ejus.

Tóllite hóstias, et introíte in átria ejus: adoráte Dóminum in átrio sancto ejus.

Commoveátur a fácie ejus univérsa terra: dícite in géntibus quia Dóminus regnávit.

Etenim corréxit orbem terræ qui non commovébitur: judicábit pópulos in æquitáte.

Læténtur cæli, et exsúltet terra: commoveátur mare, et plenitúdo ejus: gaudébunt campi, et ómnia quæ in eis sunt.

Tunc exsultábunt ómnia ligna silvárum a fácie Dómini, quia venit: quóniam venit judicáre terram.

Judicábit orbem terræ in æquitáte, et pópulos in veritáte sua.

Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Cantáte Dómino, et benedícite nómini ejus.

Ant. 2 Salutáre vultus mei.

Psalmus 42

JÚDICA me, Deus, et discérne causam meam de gente non sancta, ab hómine iníquo, et dolóso érue me.

Quia tu es, Deus, fortitúdo mea: quare me reppulísti? et quare tristis incédo, dum afflígit me inimícus?

Emítte lucem tuam et veritátem tuam: ipsa me deduxérunt, et adduxérunt in montem sanctum tuum, et in tabernácula tua.

Et introíbo ad altáre Dei: ad Deum, qui lætíficat juventútem meam.

Confitébor tibi in cíthara, Deus, Deus meus: quare tristis es, ánima mea? et quare contúrbas me?

Spera in Deo, quóniam adhuc confitébor illi: salutáre vultus mei, et Deus meus.

Confiteántur tibi pópuli, Deus: confiteántur tibi pópuli omnes.

Læténtur et exsúltent gentes: quóniam júdicas pópulos in æquitáte, et gentes in terra dírigis.

Confiteántur tibi pópuli, Deus, confiteántur tibi pópuli omnes: terra dedit fructum suum.

Benedícat nos Deus, Deus noster, benedícat nos Deus: et métuant eum omnes fines terræ.

Canticum Tobiæ

Tob. 13, 1-10

MAGNUS es, Dómine, in ætérnum, et in ómnia sæcula regnum tuum:

Quóniam tu flagéllas, et salvas: dedúcis ad ínferos, et redúcis: et non est qui effúgiat manum tuam.

Confitémini Dómino, fílii Israel, et in conspéctu géntium laudáte eum:

Quóniam ídeo dispérsit vos inter gentes, quæ ignórant eum, ut vos enarrétis mirabília ejus,

Et faciátis scire eo, quia non est álius Deus omnípotens præter eum.

Ipse castigávit nos propter iniquitátes nostras: et ipse salvábit nos propter misericórdiam suam.

Aspícite ergo quæ fecit nobíscum, et cum timóre et tremóre confitémini illi: Regémque sæculórum exaltáte in opéribus vestris.

Ego autem in terra captivitátis meæ confitébor illi: quóniam osténdit majestátem suam in gentem peccatrícem.

Convertímini ítaque, peccatóres, et fácite justítiam coram Deo, credéntes quod fáciat vobíscum misericórdiam suam:

Ego autem, et ánima mea in eo lætábimur.

Benedícite Dóminum, omnes elécti ejus: ágite dies lætítiæ, et confitémini illi.

Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto.

Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Exaltáte Regem sæculórum in opéribus vestris.

Ant. 5 Laudáte.

Psalmus 134

[LAUDÁTE] nomen Dómini, laudáte, servi, Dóminum.

Qui statis in domo Dómini, in átriis domus Dei nostri.

Laudáte Dóminum, quia bonus Dóminus: psállite nómini ejus, quóniam suáve.

Quóniam Jacob elégit sibi Dóminus, Israel in possessiónem sibi.

Quia ego cognóvi quod magnus est Dóminus, et Deus noster præ ómnibus diis.

Omnia quæcúmque vóluit, Dóminus fecit in cælo, et in terra, in mari, et in ómnibus abýssis.

Edúcens nubes ab extrémo terræ: fúlgura in plúviam fecit.

Qui prodúcit ventos de thesáuris suis: qui percússit primogénita Ægýpti ab hómine usque ad pecus.

Et misit signa, et prodígia in médio tui, Ægýpte: in Pharaónem, et in omnes servos ejus.

Qui percússit gentes multas: et occídit reges fortes:

Sehon, regem Amorrhæórum, et Og, regem Bassan, et ómnia regna Chánaan.

Et dedit terram eórum hereditátem, hereditátem Israel, pópulo suo.

Dómine, nomen tuum in ætérnum: Dómine, memoriále tuum in generatiónem et generatiónem.

Quia judicábit Dóminus pópulum suum: et in servis suis deprecábitur.

Simulácra géntium argéntum, et aurum, ópera mánuum hóminum.

Os habent, et non loquéntur: óculos habent, et non vidébunt.

Aures habent, et non áudient: neque enim est spíritus in ore ipsórum.

Símiles illis fiant qui fáciunt ea: et omnes qui confídunt in eis.

Domus Israel, benedícite Dómino: domus Aaron, benedícite Dómino.

Domus Levi, benedícite Dómino: qui timétis Dóminum, benedícite Dómino.

Benedíctus Dóminus ex Sion, qui hábitat in Jerúsalem.

Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto.

Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Laudáte nomen Dómini, qui statis in domo Dómini.

Capitulum Rom. 13, 12-13

BENEDÍCTUS Dóminus, Deus Israel, quia visitávit, et fecit redemptiónem plebis suæ:

Et eréxit cornu salútis nobis: in domo David, púeri sui.

Sicut locútus est per os sanctórum, qui a sæculo sunt, Prophetárum ejus:

Salútem ex inimícis nostris, et de manu ómnium, qui odérunt nos:

Ad faciéndam misericórdiam cum pátribus nostris: et memorári testaménti sui sancti.

Jusjurándum, quod jurávit ad Abraham, patrem nostrum, datúrum se nobis:

Ut sine timóre, de manu inimicórum nostrórum liberáti, serviámus illi.

In sanctitáte, et justítia coram ipso, ómnibus diébus nostris.

Et tu, puer, Prophéta Altíssimi vocáberis: præíbis enim ante fáciem Dómini paráre vias ejus:

Ad dandam sciéntiam salútis plebi ejus: in remissiónem peccatórum eórum:

Per víscera misericórdiæ Dei nostri: in quibus visitávit nos, óriens ex alto:

Illumináre his, qui in ténebris, et in umbra mortis sedent: ad dirigéndos pedes nostros in viam pacis.

Sing ye to the Lord and bless his name: shew forth his salvation from day to day.

Declare his glory among the Gentiles: his wonders among all people.

For the Lord is great, and exceedingly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens.

Praise and beauty are before him: holiness and majesty in his sanctuary.

Bring ye to the Lord, O ye kindreds of the Gentiles, bring ye to the Lord glory and honour: bring to the Lord glory unto his name.

Bring up sacrifices, and come into his courts: adore ye the Lord in his holy court.

Let all the earth be moved at his presence.

Say ye among the Gentiles, the Lord hath reigned.

For he hath corrected the world, which shall not be moved: he will judge the people with justice.

Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad, let the sea be moved, and the fulness thereof: the fields and all things that are in them shall be joyful.

Then shall all the trees of the woods rejoice before the face of the Lord, because he cometh: because he cometh to judge the earth.

He shall judge the world with justice, and the people with his truth.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

JUDGE me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation that is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

For thou art God my strength: why hast thou cast me off? and why do I go sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?

Send forth thy light and thy truth: they have conducted me, and brought me unto thy holy hill, and into thy tabernacles.

And I will go in to the altar of God: to God who giveth joy to my youth.

To thee, O God my God, I will give praise upon the harp: why art thou sad, O my soul? and why dost thou disquiet me?

Hope in God, for I will still give praise to him: the salvation of my countenance, and my God.

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.

MAY God have mercy on us, and bless us: may he cause the light of his countenance to shine upon us, and may he have mercy on us.

That we may know thy way upon earth: thy salvation in all nations.

Let people confess to thee, O God: let all people give praise to thee.

Let the nations be glad and rejoice: for thou judgest the people with justice, and directest the nations upon earth.

Let the people, O God, confess to thee: let all the people give praise to thee: the earth hath yielded her fruit.

Canticle of Tobias

Tob. 13, 1-10

THOU art great, O Lord, for ever, and thy kingdom is unto all ages:

For thou scourgest, and thou savest: thou leadest down to hell, and bringest up again: and there is none that can escape thy hand.

Give glory to the Lord, ye children of Israel, and praise him in the sight of the Gentiles:

Because he hath therefore scattered you among the Gentiles, who know not him, that you may declare his wonderful works, and make them know that there is no other almighty God besides him.

He hath chastised us for our iniquities: and he will save us for his own mercy.

See then what he hath done with us, and with fear and trembling give ye glory to him: and extol the eternal King of worlds in your works.

As for me, I will praise him in the land of my captivity: because he hath shewn his majesty toward a sinful nation.

Be converted therefore, ye sinners, and do justice before God, believing that he will shew his mercy to you.

And I and my soul will rejoice in him.

Bless ye the Lord, all his elect, keep days of joy, and give glory to him.

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.

Psalm 134

An exhortation to praise God: the vanity of idols.

[PRAISE ye] the name of the Lord: O you his servants, praise the Lord:

You that stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God.

Praise ye the Lord, for the Lord is good: sing ye to his name, for it is sweet.

For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself: Israel for his own possession.

For I have known that the Lord is great, and our God is above all gods.

Whatsoever the Lord pleased he hath done, in heaven, in earth, in the sea, and in all the deeps.

He bringeth up clouds from the end of the earth: he hath made lightnings for the rain.

He bringeth forth winds out of his stores: He slew the firstborn of Egypt from man even unto beast.

He sent forth signs and wonders in the midst of thee, O Egypt: upon Pharao, and upon all his servants.

He smote many nations, and slew mighty kings:

Sehon king of the Amorrhites, and Og king of Basan, and all the kingdoms of Chanaan.

And gave their land for an inheritance, for an inheritance to his people Israel.

Thy name, O Lord, is for ever: thy memorial, O Lord, unto all generations.

For the Lord will judge his people, and will be entreated in favour of his servants.

The idols of the Gentiles are silver and gold, the works of menís hands.

They have a mouth, but they speak not: they have eyes, but they see not.

They have ears, but they hear not: neither is there any breath in their mouths.

Let them that make them be like to them: and every one that trusteth in them.

Bless the Lord, O house of Israel: bless the Lord, O house of Aaron.

Bless the Lord, O house of Levi: you that fear the Lord, bless the Lord.

Blessed be the Lord out of Sion, who dwelleth in Jerusalem.

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.

Ant. Praise ye the name of the Lord, ye that stand in the house of the Lord.

"Wake!" he cries, "and for my sake,

From your eyes dull slumbers shake!

Sober, righteous, chaste, awake!

At the door I stand!"

Lord, to thee we lift on high

Fervent prayer and bitter cry:

Hearts aroused to pray and sigh

May not slumber more:

Break the sleep of Death and Time,

Forged by Adamís ancient crime;

And the light of Edenís prime

To the world restore!

Unto God the Father, Son,

Holy Spirit, Three in One,

One in Three, be glory done.

Now and evermore.

And hath raised up an horn of salvation to us, in the house of David his servant:

As he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets, who are from the beginning:

Salvation from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us:

To perform mercy to our fathers, and to remember his holy testament,

The oath, which he swore to Abraham our father, that he would grant to us,

That being delivered from the hand of our enemies, we may serve him without fear,

In holiness and justice before him, all our days.

And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways:

To give knowledge of salvation to his people, unto the remission of their sins:

Through the bowels of the mercy of our God, in which the Orient from on high hath visited us:

To enlighten them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death: to direct our feet into the way of peace.

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.

Final Antiphon

of the Blessed Virgin Mary

HAIL, holy Queen, mother of mercy! Hail, our life, our sweetness, and our hope! to thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears.
