Hymn
Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!
Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,
casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.
Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
only thou art holy; there is none beside thee,
perfect in power, in love and purity.
Holy holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name, in earth and sky and sea.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessed Trinity.

Anima Dominum sitiens

Ad Deum vigilat, qui opera noctis reicit.

Tibi decus et impérium, tibi glória et potéstas, tibi laus et iubilátio in sempitérna sǽcula, o Beáta Trínitas.
2Deus, Deus meus es tu,*
  ad te de luce vígilo.
Sitívit in te ánima mea,*
  te desiderávit caro mea.
In terra desérta et árida et inaquósa,†
  3sic in sancto appárui tibi,*
  ut vidérem virtútem tuam et glóriam tuam.
4Quóniam mélior est misericórdia tua super vitas,*
  lábia mea laudábunt te.
5Sic benedícam te in vita mea*
  et in nómine tuo levábo manus meas.
6Sicut ádipe et pinguédine repleátur ánima mea,*
  et lábiis exsultatiónis laudábit os meum.
7Cum memor ero tui super stratum meum,*
  in matutínis meditábor de te,
8quia fuísti adiútor meus,*
  et in velaménto alárum tuárum exsultábo.
9Adhǽsit ánima mea post te,*
  me suscépit déxtera tua.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Tibi decus et impérium, tibi glória et potéstas, tibi laus et iubilátio in sempitérna sǽcula, o Beáta Trínitas.
Psalm 62 (63)
Thirsting for God
All majesty and power, glory and honour, praise and adoration belongs to you, O blessed Trinity, for ever and ever.
O God, you are my God, I watch for you from the dawn.
My soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you.
I came to your sanctuary,
  as one in a parched and waterless land,
  so that I could see your might and your glory.
My lips will praise you, for your mercy is better than life itself.
Thus I will bless you throughout my life,
  and raise my hands in prayer to your name;
my soul will be filled as if by rich food,
  and my mouth will sing your praises and rejoice.
I will remember you as I lie in bed,
  I will think of you in the morning,
for you have been my helper,
  and I will take joy in the protection of your wings.
My soul clings to you; your right hand raises me up.
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.
All majesty and power, glory and honour, praise and adoration belongs to you, O blessed Trinity, for ever and ever.

Ex quo ómnia, per quem ómnia, in quo ómnia: ipsi glória in sǽcula.

2Lætétur Israel in eo, qui fecit eum,*
  et fílii Sion exsúltent in rege suo.
3Laudent nomen eius in choro,*
  in týmpano et cíthara psallant ei,
4quia beneplácitum est Dómino in pópulo suo,*
  et honorábit mansuétos in salúte.

Psalm 149
The saints rejoice
From him, through him and in him are all things: to him be glory for ever.
Sing a new song to the Lord,
  his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel rejoice in its maker,
  and the sons of Zion delight in their king.
Let them praise his name with dancing,
  sing to him with timbrel and lyre,
for the Lord’s favour is upon his people,
  and he will honour the humble with victory.
Let the faithful celebrate his glory,
  rejoice even in their beds,
the praise of God in their throats;
  and swords ready in their hands,
to exact vengeance upon the nations,
  impose punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings in fetters
  and their nobles in manacles of iron,
to carry out the sentence that has been passed:
  this is the glory prepared for all his faithful.
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.
From him, through him and in him are all things: to him be glory for ever.

De Messia eiusque præcursore
Benedícta sit creátrix et gubernátrix ómnium, sancta et indivídua Trínitas, et nunc et semper et per infiníta sæculórum sǽcula.
Benedíctus Dóminus Deus Israel,*

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
Blessed be the creator and ruler of all things, the holy and undivided Trinity, both now and for ever and for ages unending.
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
  for he has come to his people and brought about their redemption.
He has raised up the sign of salvation
  in the house of his servant David,
as he promised through the mouth of the holy ones,
  his prophets through the ages:
to rescue us from our enemies
  and all who hate us,
to take pity on our fathers,
  to remember his holy covenant
and the oath he swore to Abraham our father,
  that he would give himself to us,
that we could serve him without fear
 – freed from the hands of our enemies –
in uprightness and holiness before him,
  for all of our days.
And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High:
  for you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare his path,
to let his people know their salvation,
  so that their sins may be forgiven.
Through the bottomless mercy of our God,
  one born on high will visit us
to give light to those who walk in darkness,
  who live in the shadow of death;
  to lead our feet in the path of peace.
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 be the creator and ruler of all things, the holy and undivided Trinity, both now and for ever and for ages unending.
