Hymnus
Imménse cæli cónditor,
qui, mixta ne confúnderent,
aquæ fluénta dívidens,
cælum dedísti límitem,
Firmans locum cæléstibus
simúlque terræ rívulis,
ut unda flammas témperet,
terræ solum ne díssipet:
Infúnde nunc, piíssime,
donum perénnis grátiæ,
fraudis novæ ne cásibus
nos error átterat vetus.
Lucem fides invéniat,
sic lúminis iubar ferat;
hæc vana cuncta térreat,
hanc falsa nulla cómprimant.
Præsta, Pater piíssime,
Patríque compar Unice,
cum Spíritu Paráclito
regnans per omne sǽculum. Amen.
Hymn
Come, praise the Lord, the Almighty, the King of all nations!
Tell forth his fame, O ye peoples, with loud acclamations!
His love is sure;
Faithful his word shall endure,
Steadfast through all generations!
Praise to the Father most gracious, the Lord of creation!
Praise to his Son, the Redeemer who wrought our salvation!
O heav’nly Dove,
Praise to thee, fruit of their love,
Giver of all consolation.

Psalmus 10:1-7
Dominus fiducia iusti
Beati, qui esuriunt et sitiunt iustitiam, quoniam ipsi saturabuntur” (Mt 5, 6).
Oculi Dómini in páuperem respíciunt.
1In Dómino confído, quómodo dícitis ánimæ meæ:*
  «Tránsmigra in montem sicut passer?
2Quóniam ecce peccatóres intendérunt arcum,†
  paravérunt sagíttas suas super nervum,*
  ut sagíttent in obscúro rectos corde.
3Quando fundaménta evertúntur,*
  iustus quid fáciat?».
4Dóminus in templo sancto suo,*
  Dóminus, in cælo sedes eius.
Oculi eius in páuperem respíciunt,*
  pálpebræ eius intérrogant fílios hóminum.
5Dóminus intérrogat iustum et ímpium;*
  qui autem díligit iniquitátem, odit ánima eius.
6Pluet super peccatóres carbónes;*
  ignis et sulphur et spíritus procellárum pars cálicis eórum.
7Quóniam iustus Dóminus et iustítias diléxit,*
  recti vidébunt vultum eius.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Oculi Dómini in páuperem respíciunt.
Psalm 10 (11)
The Lord, support of the just
The Lord cares for the weak and oppressed.
I trust in the Lord, so why do you say to me:
  “Fly up to the mountain like a sparrow”?
“For the wicked have drawn their bows,
  fitted the arrow to the string,
  to shoot in darkness at the upright of heart.
When the foundations are being overthrown,
  what are the just to do?”
The Lord is in his holy temple;
  the Lord’s throne is in heaven.
His eyes look down on the poor,
  he examines the children of men.
The Lord scrutinises the just and the unjust,
  and his heart hates those who do evil.
He rains down coals upon the wicked,
  fire and brimstone and a scorching wind:
  this is what he gives them to drink.
For the Lord is just and loves just deeds,
  and the upright shall see his face.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
The Lord cares for the weak and oppressed.

Psalmus 14:1-5
Quis dignus coram Domino?
Accessistis ad Sion montem et civitatem Dei viventis” (Hebr 12, 22).
Beáti mundo corde, quóniam ipsi Deum vidébunt.
1Dómine, quis habitábit in tabernáculo tuo?*
  Quis requiéscet in monte sancto tuo?
2Qui ingréditur sine mácula et operátur iustítiam,*
  qui lóquitur veritátem in corde suo,
3qui non egit dolum in lingua sua,†
  nec fecit próximo suo malum*
  et oppróbrium non íntulit próximo suo.
4Ad níhilum reputátus est in conspéctu eius malígnus,*
  timéntes autem Dóminum gloríficat.
Qui iurávit in detriméntum suum et non mutat,†
  5qui pecúniam suam non dedit ad usúram*
  et múnera super innocéntem non accépit.
Qui facit hæc,*
  non movébitur in ætérnum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Beáti mundo corde, quóniam ipsi Deum vidébunt.
Psalm 14 (15)
Who is worthy to face the Lord?
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Lord, who will live in your tent?
  Who will dwell on your holy mountain?
Whoever comes there without stain,
  acts rightly, speaks truth in his heart.
Whoever does not speak deceitfully,
  or do harm to his neighbour, or slander him.
Whoever despises the evil-doer,
  but reveres those who fear the Lord.
Whoever swears and keeps his word, come what may
 – lends his money without usury –
  takes no bribe to condemn the innocent.
Whoever lives like this
  will stand firm for ever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

CanticleEphesians 1
God the Saviour
God chose us in his Son and made us his adopted sons.
Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
  who has blessed us, in Christ,
  with every spiritual blessing in heaven.
In love, he chose us before the creation of the world,
  to be holy and spotless in his sight.
He predestined us to be his adopted children through Jesus Christ,
  simply because it pleased him to do so.
This he did for the praise of the glory of his grace,
  of his free gift to us in his Beloved,
in whose blood we have gained redemption,
  and the forgiveness of our sins.
This he did according to the riches of his grace,
  which he gave us in abundance,
with all wisdom and discernment,
  revealing to us the mysteries of his will,
  because it pleased him to do so.
In this action he has planned, in the fulfilment of time,
  to bring all things together in Christ,
  from the heavens and from the earth.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
God chose us in his Son and made us his adopted sons.

et exsultávit spíritus meus*
  in Deo salvatóre meo,

CanticleMagnificat
My soul rejoices in the Lord
My soul magnifies the Lord, since God has had regard for my humble state.
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
  and my spirit rejoices in God, my salvation.
For he has shown me such favour –
  me, his lowly handmaiden.
Now all generations will call me blessed,
  because the mighty one has done great things for me.
His name is holy,
  his mercy lasts for generation after generation
  for those who revere him.
He has put forth his strength:
  he has scattered the proud and conceited,
  torn princes from their thrones;
  but lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things;
  the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel,
  he has remembered his mercy as he promised to our fathers,
  to Abraham and his children for ever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
My soul magnifies the Lord, since God has had regard for my humble state.

Preces
Deus cum pópulo suo pactum íniit sempitérnum, neque désinit illi benefácere. Ideo ei grátias agámus et fidénti ánimo nostram ad eum dirigámus oratiónem:
Bénefac pópulo tuo, Dómine.
Salvum fac pópulum tuum, Dómine,
— et bénedic hereditáti tuæ.
Cóngrega in unum christiáno nómine decorátos,
— ut credat mundus in Christum, quem misísti.
Grátiam tuam ómnibus amícis nostris confer et notis,
— bonúmque Christi odórem fac ut ipsi diffúndant.
Amórem tuum agonizántibus manifésta,
— da ut salútem tuam eórum óculi vídeant.
Erga defúnctos misericórditer age,
— ággrega eos quiescéntibus in Christo.
Prayers and intercessions
God our Father has bound himself to us in an everlasting covenant. In thankfulness and faith, we pray to him:
Lord, bless your people!
In Christ you have given a new covenant to men:
  may they know the greatness which they have inherited.
Lord, bless your people!
Gather into one all who bear the name of Christian,
  that the world may believe in the Christ you have sent.
Lord, bless your people!
Pour out your love on our friends, and on all whom we know;
  may they carry with them the gentleness of Christ.
Lord, bless your people!
Comfort the dying;
  may they know your saving love.
Lord, bless your people!
Show your mercy to the dead;
  may they find their rest in Christ.
Lord, bless your people!

Pater noster, qui es in cælis:
sanctificétur nomen tuum;
advéniat regnum tuum;
fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidiánum 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.
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.

Magníficet te, Dómine, hæc nostræ servitútis proféssio, ut, qui propter nostram salútem humilitátem Maríæ Vírginis respexísti, ad plenitúdinem redemptiónis nos fácias exaltári. Per Dóminum.
Let our worship give you glory, Lord,
  who for our salvation
  looked upon the lowliness of Mary, your handmaid:
raise us up to share with her
  the fullness of redemption.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

Dóminus nos benedícat, et ab omni malo deféndat, et ad vitam perdúcat ætérnam.
The Lord bless us, and keep us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.

AMEN
