Morning Prayer (Lauds)

If you have already recited the Invitatory Psalm today, you should use the alternative opening.


Dómine, lábia mea apéries.
  Et os meum annuntiábit laudem tuam.
Lord, open our lips.
  And we shall praise your name.
Psalmus 94 (95)
Adhortamini vosmetipsos per singulos dies, donec illud «hodie» vocatur” (Hebr 3, 13).
Regem mártyrum Dóminum, veníte, adorémus.
(repeat antiphon*)
1Veníte, exsultémus Dómino;
  iubilémus Deo salutári nostro.
2Præoccupémus fáciem eius in confessióne
  et in psalmis iubilémus ei.
(repeat antiphon*)
3Quóniam Deus magnus Dóminus
  et rex magnus super omnes deos.
4Quia in manu eius sunt profúnda terræ,
  et altitúdines móntium ipsíus sunt.
5Quóniam ipsíus est mare, et ipse fecit illud,
  et siccam manus eius formavérunt.
(repeat antiphon*)
6Veníte, adorémus et procidámus
  et génua flectámus ante Dóminum, qui fecit nos,
7quia ipse est Deus noster,
  et nos pópulus páscuæ eius et oves manus eius.
(repeat antiphon*)
8Utinam hódie vocem eius audiátis:
  «Nolíte obduráre corda vestra,
9sicut in Meríba secúndum diem Massa in desérto,
  ubi tentavérunt me patres vestri:
  probavérunt me, etsi vidérunt ópera mea.
(repeat antiphon*)
10Quadragínta annis tæduit me generatiónis illíus,
  et dixi: Pópulus errántium corde sunt isti.
11Et ipsi non cognovérunt vias meas;
  ídeo iurávi in ira mea:
  Non introíbunt in réquiem meam».
(repeat antiphon*)
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Regem mártyrum Dóminum, veníte, adorémus.*
Invitatory PsalmPsalm 94 (95)
The Lord is the king of martyrs: come, let us adore him.
(repeat antiphon*)
Come, let us rejoice in the Lord,
  let us acclaim God our salvation.
Let us come before him proclaiming our thanks,
  let us acclaim him with songs.
(repeat antiphon*)
For the Lord is a great God,
  a king above all gods.
For he holds the depths of the earth in his hands,
  and the peaks of the mountains are his.
For the sea is his: he made it;
  and his hands formed the dry land.
(repeat antiphon*)
Come, let us worship and bow down,
  bend the knee before the Lord who made us;
for he himself is our God and we are his flock,
  the sheep that follow his hand.
(repeat antiphon*)
If only, today, you would listen to his voice:
  “Do not harden your hearts
  as you did at Meribah,
on the day of Massah in the desert,
  when your fathers tested me –
they put me to the test,
  although they had seen my works.”
(repeat antiphon*)
“For forty years they wearied me,
  that generation.
I said: their hearts are wandering,
  they do not know my paths.
I swore in my anger:
  they will never enter my place of rest.”
(repeat antiphon*)
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 is the king of martyrs: come, let us adore him.*

* If you are reciting this on your own, you can choose to say the antiphon once only at the start of the psalm and not repeat it.


Hymnus
Lucis largítor spléndide,
cuius seréno lúmine
post lapsa noctis témpora
dies refúsus pánditur,
Tu verus mundi lúcifer,
non is qui parvi síderis
ventúræ lucis núntius
angústo fulget lúmine,
Sed toto sole clárior,
lux ipse totus et dies,
intérna nostri péctoris
illúminans præcórdia.
Evíncat mentis cástitas
quæ caro cupit árrogans,
sanctúmque puri córporis
delúbrum servet Spíritus.
Sit, Christe, rex piíssime,
tibi Patríque glória
cum Spíritu Paráclito
in sempitérna sǽcula. Amen.
Hymn
Come, O Creator Spirit, come,
And make within our hearts your home;
To us thy grace eternal give,
Who of your breathing move and live.
Our senses with your light inflame,
Our hearts to heavenly love reclaim;
Our bodies’ poor infirmity
With strength perpetual fortify.
Our earthly foe afar repel:
grant us henceforth in peace to dwell;
and so to us, with you for guide,
no ill shall come, no harm betide.
May we by you the Father learn,
And know the Son, and you discern,
Who are of both; and thus adore
In perfect faith for evermore.

Psalmus 41:2-12
Desiderium Domini et templi eius
Qui sitit, veniat; qui vult, accipiat aquam vitæ” (Ap 22, 17).
Quando véniam et apparébo ante fáciem Dómini?
2Quemádmodum desíderat cervus ad fontes aquárum,*
  ita desíderat ánima mea ad te, Deus.
3Sitívit ánima mea ad Deum, Deum vivum;*
  quando véniam et apparébo ante fáciem Dei?
4Fuérunt mihi lácrimæ meæ panis die ac nocte,*
  dum dícitur mihi quotídie: «Ubi est Deus tuus?».
5Hæc recordátus sum et effúdi in me ánimam meam;†
  quóniam transíbam in locum tabernáculi admirábilis*
  usque ad domum Dei,
in voce exsultatiónis et confessiónis,*
  multitúdinis festa celebrántis.
6Quare tristis es, ánima mea,*
  et quare conturbáris in me?
Spera in Deo, quóniam adhuc confitébor illi,*
  salutáre vultus mei et Deus meus.
7In meípso ánima mea contristáta est;†
  proptérea memor ero tui*
  de terra Iordánis et Hermónim, de monte Misar.
8Abýssus abýssum ínvocat in voce cataractárum tuárum;*
  omnes gúrgites tui et fluctus tui super me transiérunt.
9In die mandávit Dóminus misericórdiam suam,†
  et nocte cánticum eius apud me est:*
  orátio ad Deum vitæ meæ.
10Dicam Deo:*
  «Suscéptor meus es.
Quare oblítus es mei,†
  et quare contristátus incédo,*
  dum afflígit me inimícus?».
11Dum confringúntur ossa mea,†
  exprobravérunt mihi, qui tríbulant me,*
  dum dicunt mihi quotídie: «Ubi est Deus tuus?».
12Quare tristis es, ánima mea,*
  et quare conturbáris in me?
Spera in Deo, quóniam adhuc confitébor illi,*
  salutáre vultus mei et Deus meus.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Quando véniam et apparébo ante fáciem Dómini?
Psalm 41 (42)
Longing for the Lord and his temple
When can I enter and see the face of God?
Like a deer that longs for springs of water,
  so my soul longs for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, the living God:
  when shall I come and stand before the face of God?
My tears are my food, by day and by night,
  and everyone asks, “where is your God?”.
I remember how I went up to your glorious dwelling-place
  and into the house of God:
  the memory melts my soul.
The sound of joy and thanksgiving,
  the crowds at the festival.
Why are you so sad, my soul,
  and anxious within me?
Put your hope in the Lord, I will praise him still,
  my saviour and my God.
My soul is sad within me,
  and so I will remember you
  in the lands of Jordan and Hermon,
  on the mountain of Mizar.
Deep calls to deep
  in your rushing waters:
and all your torrents, all your waves
  have flowed over me.
By day the Lord sends his kindness upon me;
  by night his song is with me,
  a prayer to the God of my life.
I will say to God:
  “You are my support, why have you forgotten me?
  Why must I go in mourning, while the enemy persecutes me?.”
As my bones break,
  my persecutors deride me,
  all the time saying “where is your God?.”
Why are you so sad, my soul,
  and anxious within me?
Put your hope in the Lord, I will praise him still,
  my saviour and my God.
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.
When can I enter and see the face of God?

Canticle
Ecclesiasticus 36
A prayer for Jerusalem, the holy city
Show us, Lord, the light of your mercy.
God of all, have mercy on us, take notice of us,
  and show us the light of your mercies.
Make the nations fear you, who have not sought you out,
  make them know that there is no God except you,
  let them tell of your wonders.
Lift up your hand over foreign nations, that they may see your power –
  for just as in their sight you have been sanctified in us,
  so in our sight you will be magnified in them.
Lift up your hand so that they may know, as we know,
  that there is no God but you, Lord.
Bring forth new signs and repeat your wonders;
  glorify your hand, show the strength of your arm.
Gather together all the tribes of Jacob,
  give them back the inheritance they had from the beginning.
Take pity on your people, over whom we invoke your name,
  and on Israel, whom you have made equal to your firstborn.
Take pity on the city you have sanctified,
  Jerusalem, the place of your rest.
Fill Zion with your majesty;
  fill your temple with your glory.
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.
Show us, Lord, the light of your mercy.

Psalmus 18:2-7
Laus Domini rerum conditoris
Visitavit nos Oriens ex alto... ad dirigendos pedes nostros in viam pacis” (Lc 1, 78. 79).
Benedíctus es, Dómine, in firmaménto cæli.
2Cæli enárrant glóriam Dei, *
  et ópera mánuum eius annúntiat firmaméntum.
3Dies diéi erúctat verbum, *
  et nox nocti índicat sciéntiam.
4Non sunt loquélæ neque sermónes, *
  quorum non intellegántur voces:
5in omnem terram exívit sonus eórum, *
  et in fines orbis terræ verba eórum.
6Soli pósuit tabernáculum in eis, †
  et ipse tamquam sponsus procédens de thálamo suo, *
  exsultávit ut gigas ad curréndam viam.
7A fínibus cælórum egréssio eius, †
  et occúrsus eius usque ad fines eórum, *
  nec est quod se abscóndat a calóre eius.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Benedíctus es, Dómine, in firmaménto cæli.
Psalm 18 (19)
Praise of God the creator
Blessed are you, Lord, in the vault of heaven.
The skies tell the story of the glory of God,
  the firmament proclaims the work of his hands;
day pours out the news to day,
  night passes to night the knowledge.
Not a speech, not a word,
  not a voice goes unheard.
Their sound is spread throughout the earth,
  their message to all the corners of the world.
At the ends of the earth he has set up
  a dwelling place for the sun.
Like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
  it rejoices like an athlete at the race to be run.
It appears at the edge of the sky,
  runs its course to the sky’s furthest edge.
Nothing can hide from its heat.
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 you, Lord, in the vault of heaven.

De Messia eiusque præcursore
Benedíctus Dóminus, quia visitávit et liberávit nos.
Benedíctus Dóminus Deus Israel,*
  quia visitávit et fecit redemptiónem plebi suæ
et eréxit cornu salútis nobis*
  in domo David púeri sui,
sicut locútus est per os sanctórum,*
  qui a sæculo sunt, prophetárum eius,

Et tu, puer, prophéta Altíssimi vocáberis:*
  præíbis enim ante fáciem Dómini paráre vias eius,
ad dandam sciéntiam salútis plebi eius*
  in remissiónem peccatórum eórum,
per víscera misericórdiæ Dei nostri,*
  in quibus visitábit nos óriens ex alto,
illumináre his, qui in ténebris et in umbra mortis sedent*

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
Blessed be the Lord, for he has visited us and freed us.
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 Lord, for he has visited us and freed us.
