Hymnus
Rector potens, verax Deus,
qui témperas rerum vices,
splendóre mane ínstruis
et ígnibus merídiem,
Exstíngue flammas lítium,
aufer calórem nóxium,
confer salútem córporum
verámque pacem córdium.
Præsta, Pater piíssime,
Patríque compar Unice,
cum Spíritu Paráclito
regnans per omne sæculum. Amen.
Hymn
Lord God and Maker of all things,
Creation is upheld by you.
While all must change and know decay,
You are unchanging, always new.
You are man’s solace and his shield,
His Rock secure on which to build.
You are the spirit’s tranquil home,
In you alone is hope fulfilled.
To God the Father and the Son
And Holy Spirit render praise:
Blest Trinity, from age to age
The strength of all our living days.
Stanbrook Abbey Hymnal

Psalmus 122:1-5
Dominus fiducia populi
Duo cæci ... clamaverunt: «Domine, miserere nostri, Fili David»” (Mt 20, 30).
Qui hábitas in cælis, miserére nobis.
1Ad te levávi óculos meos,*
  qui hábitas in cælis.
2Ecce sicut óculi servórum ad manus dominórum suórum,*
  sicut óculi ancíllæ ad manus dóminæ suæ,
ita óculi nostri ad Dóminum Deum nostrum,*
  donec misereátur nostri.
3Miserére nostri, Dómine, miserére nostri,*
  quia multum repléti sumus despectióne;
4quia multum repléta est ánima nostra*
  derisióne abundántium et despectióne superbórum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Qui hábitas in cælis, miserére nobis.
Psalm 122 (123)
The Lord guards his people
You, Lord, who dwell in the heavens, have mercy on us.
To you I lift up my eyes,
  to you who dwell in the heavens.
Like the eyes of a servant watching his master,
  like the eyes of a maid on her mistress’s hands,
  so we keep our eyes on the Lord our God,
  as we wait for his kindness.
Take pity on us, Lord, take pity:
  we have had our fill of contempt.
Our souls have had their fill
  of the laughter of the rich,
  of the contempt of the proud.
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.
You, Lord, who dwell in the heavens, have mercy on us.

Psalmus 123:1-8
Adiutorium nostrum in nomine Domini
Dixit Dominus Paulo: «Noli timere ... quia ego sum tecum»” (Act 18, 9-10).
Adiutórium nostrum in nómine Dómini.
1Nisi quia Dóminus erat in nobis, dicat nunc Israel,†
  2nisi quia Dóminus erat in nobis,*
  cum exsúrgerent hómines in nos:
3forte vivos deglutíssent nos,*
  cum irascerétur furor eórum in nos.
4Fórsitan aqua absorbuísset nos,†
  torrens pertransísset ánimam nostram*
  5fórsitan pertransíssent ánimam nostram aquæ intumescéntes.
6Benedíctus Dóminus;*
  qui non dedit nos in direptiónem déntibus eórum.
7Anima nostra sicut passer erépta est*
  de láqueo venántium:
láqueus contrítus est,*
  et nos erépti sumus.
8Adiutórium nostrum in nómine Dómini,*
  qui fecit cælum et terram.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Adiutórium nostrum in nómine Dómini.
Psalm 123 (124)
Our help is in the name of the Lord
Our help is in the name of the Lord.
If the Lord had not been with us
  (so let Israel sing),
If the Lord had not been with us
  when men rose up against us,
they might have skinned us alive,
  such was their anger.
The waters could have drowned us,
  the torrent poured over us,
  the foaming waters poured over us.
Blessed be the Lord, who saved us
  from being torn to pieces by their teeth.
We have escaped, like a bird
  from the snare of the fowler.
The snare was broken,
  and we escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord,
  who made heaven and 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.
Our help is in the name of the Lord.

Psalmus 124:1-5
Dominus custos populi sui
Pax super Israel Dei” (Gal 6, 16).
In circúitu pópuli sui Dóminus, ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum.
1Qui confídunt in Dómino sicut mons Sion:*
  non commovébitur, in ætérnum manet.
2Ierúsalem, montes in circúitu eius,†
  et Dóminus in circúitu pópuli sui*
  ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum.
3Quia non requiéscet virga iniquitátis super sortem iustórum,*
  ut non exténdant iusti ad iniquitátem manus suas.
4Bénefac, Dómine, bonis*
  et rectis corde.
5Declinántes autem per vias pravas†
  addúcet Dóminus cum operántibus iniquitátem.*
  Pax super Israel!
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
In circúitu pópuli sui Dóminus, ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum.
Psalm 124 (125)
The Lord guards his people
The Lord surrounds his people both now and for ever.
Those who trust in the Lord are like the mountain of Zion:
  it cannot be shaken, it will stand firm for ever.
Jerusalem – the mountains stand guard over it,
  and the Lord stands guard over his people,
  both now and for ever.
The sceptre of the wicked shall not rest
  upon the inheritance of the just;
lest the just themselves stretch out their hands
  and turn to wickedness.
Be good, O Lord, to the good
  and the upright of heart.
As for those who turn away to crooked paths,
  the Lord shall treat them like the doers of evil.
Peace be on Israel!
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 surrounds his people both now and for ever.
