Hymnus
Ternis horárum términis
volútis, dante Dómino,
trinum perfécte et únicum
ipsum devóti psállimus.
Sacrum Dei mystérium
puro tenéntes péctore,
Petri magístri régula
signo salútis pródita,
Et nos psallámus spíritu,
hæréntes sic apóstolis,
ut plantas adhuc débiles
Christi virtúte dírigant.
Deo Patri sit glória
eiúsque soli Fílio
cum Spíritu Paráclito,
in sempitérna sǽcula. Amen.
Hymn
Eternal Father, loving God,
Who made us from the dust of earth,
Transform us by the Spirit’s grace,
Give value to our little worth.
Prepare us for that day of days
When Christ from heaven will come with might
To call us out of dust again,
Our bodies glorified in light.
O Godhead, here untouched, unseen,
All things created bear your trace;
The seed of glory sown in man
Will flower when we see your face.
Stanbrook Abbey Hymnal

PSALMS OF THE DAY


Ps 117:1-9
Vox iubilationis et salutis

Hic est lapis, qui reprobatus est a vobis ædificatoribus, qui factus est in caput anguli” (Act 4, 11).

Te semper idem esse, vívere et intellégere profitémur.
1Confitémini Dómino, quóniam bonus,*
  quóniam in sǽculum misericórdia eius.
2Dicat nunc Israel, quóniam bonus,*
  quóniam in sǽculum misericórdia eius.
3Dicat nunc domus Aaron,*
  quóniam in sǽculum misericórdia eius.
4Dicant nunc, qui timent Dóminum,*
  quóniam in sǽculum misericórdia eius.
5De tribulatióne invocávi Dóminum,*
  et exaudívit me edúcens in latitúdinem Dóminus.
6Dóminus mecum,*
  non timébo, quid fáciat mihi homo.
7Dóminus mecum adiútor meus,*
  et ego despíciam inimícos meos.
8Bonum est confúgere ad Dóminum*
  quam confídere in hómine.
9Bonum est confúgere ad Dóminum*
  quam confídere in princípibus.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Psalm 117 (118)
A cry of rejoicing and triumph
We profess that it is always one and the same thing for you to be, to live, to know.
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good,
  and his kindness is for ever.
Now let Israel say, he is good
  and his kindness is for ever.
Now let the house of Aaron say it too:
  that his kindness is for ever.
Now let all who fear the Lord say it too:
  that his kindness is for ever.
In my time of trial I called out to the Lord:
  he listened, and led me to freedom.
The Lord is with me,
  I will fear nothing that man can do.
The Lord, my help, is with me,
  and I shall look down upon my enemies.
It is good to seek shelter in the Lord,
  better than to trust in men.
It is good to seek shelter in the Lord,
  better than to trust in the leaders of men.
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.

Ps 117:10-18
10Omnes gentes circuiérunt me,*
  et in nómine Dómini excídi eos.
11Circumdántes circumdedérunt me,*
  et in nómine Dómini excídi eos.
12Circumdedérunt me sicut apes†
  et exarsérunt sicut ignis in spinis,*
  et in nómine Dómini excídi eos.
13Impelléntes impulérunt me, ut cáderem,*
  et Dóminus adiúvit me.
14Fortitúdo mea et laus mea Dóminus*
  et factus est mihi in salútem.
15Vox iubilatiónis et salútis*
  in tabernáculis iustórum:
«Déxtera Dómini fecit virtútem!†
  16Déxtera Dómini exaltávit me;*
  déxtera Dómini fecit virtútem!».
17Non móriar, sed vivam*
  et narrábo ópera Dómini.
18Castígans castigávit me Dóminus*
  et morti non trádidit me.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Psalm 117 (118)
All the nations surrounded me,
  and in the Lord’s name I slew them.
They crowded in and besieged me,
  and in the Lord’s name I slew them.
They surrounded me like swarms of bees,
  they burned like a fire of dry thorns,
  and in the Lord’s name I slew them.
They chased and pursued me, to make me fall,
  and the Lord came to my help.
The Lord is my strength and my rejoicing:
  he has become my saviour.
A cry of joy and salvation
  in the dwellings of the righteous:
“The Lord’s right hand has triumphed!
  The Lord’s right hand has raised me up;
  the Lord’s right hand has triumphed.”
I shall not die, but live,
  and tell of the works of the Lord.
The Lord chastised me severely
  but did not let me die.
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.

Ps 117:19-29
19Aperíte mihi portas iustítiæ;*
  ingréssus in eas confitébor Dómino.
20Hæc porta Dómini;*
  iusti intrábunt in eam.
21Confitébor tibi, quóniam exaudísti me*
  et factus es mihi in salútem.
22Lápidem, quem reprobavérunt ædificántes,*
  hic factus est in caput ánguli;
23a Dómino factum est istud*
  et est mirábile in óculis nostris.
24Hæc est dies, quam fecit Dóminus:*
  exsultémus et lætémur in ea.
25O Dómine, salvum me fac;*
  o Dómine, da prosperitátem!
26Benedíctus, qui venit in nómine Dómini.*
  Benedícimus vobis de domo Dómini.
27Deus Dóminus et illúxit nobis.*
  Instrúite sollemnitátem in ramis condénsis usque ad córnua altáris.
28Deus meus es tu, et confitébor tibi,*
  Deus meus, et exaltábo te.
29Confitémini Dómino, quóniam bonus,*
  quóniam in sǽculum misericórdia eius.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Te semper idem esse, vívere et intellégere profitémur.
Psalm 117 (118)
Open the gates of righteousness:
  I will go in, and thank the Lord.
This is the gate of the Lord;
  it is the upright who enter here.
I will thank you, for you listened to me,
  and became my saviour.
The stone that the builders rejected
  has become the corner-stone.
It was the Lord who did this –
  it is marvellous to behold.
This is the day that was made by the Lord:
  let us rejoice today, and be glad.
Lord, keep me safe;
  O Lord, let me prosper!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
  We bless you from the house of the Lord.
The Lord is God: he shines upon us!
  Arrange the procession, with close-packed branches,
  up to the horns of the altar.
You are my God, I will give thanks to you;
  my God, I will give you praise.
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good,
  and his kindness is 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.
We profess that it is always one and the same thing for you to be, to live, to know.

COMPLEMENTARY PSALMS


Ps 125:1-6
Gaudium et spes in Deo

Sicuti socii passionum estis, sic eritis et consolationis” (2 Cor 1, 7).

Te semper idem esse, vívere et intellégere profitémur.
1In converténdo Dóminus captivitátem Sion,*
  facti sumus quasi somniántes.
2Tunc replétum est gáudio os nostrum,*
  et lingua nostra exsultatióne.
Tunc dicébant inter gentes:*
  «Magnificávit Dóminus fácere cum eis».
5Magnificávit Dóminus fácere nobíscum;*
  facti sumus lætántes.
4Convérte, Dómine, captivitátem nostram,*
  sicut torréntes in austro.
5Qui séminant in lácrimis,*
  in exsultatióne metent.
6Eúntes ibant et flebant*
  semen spargéndum portántes;
veniéntes autem vénient in exsultatióne*
  portántes manípulos suos.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Psalm 125 (126)
Gladness and hope in the Lord
We profess that it is always one and the same thing for you to be, to live, to know.
When the Lord gave Zion back her captives, we became like dreamers.
Our mouths were filled with gladness and our voices cried in exultation.
Among the Gentiles they were saying,
  “By his deeds the Lord has shown himself great.”
The Lord’s deeds showed forth his greatness,
  and filled us with rejoicing.
Give us back our captives, O Lord,
  as you renew the dry streams in the desolate South.
Those who sow in tears will rejoice at the harvest.
They wept as they went, went with seed for the sowing;
but with joy they will come, come bearing the sheaves.
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.

Ps 126:1-5
Vanus labor sine Domino

Dei ædificatio estis” (1 Cor 3, 9).

1Nisi Dóminus ædificáverit domum,*
  in vanum labórant, qui ædíficant eam.
Nisi Dóminus custodíerit civitátem,*
  frustra vígilat, qui custódit eam.
2Vanum est vobis ante lucem súrgere et sero quiéscere,†
  qui manducátis panem labóris,*
  quia dabit diléctis suis somnum.
3Ecce heréditas Dómini fílii,*
  merces fructus ventris.
4Sicut sagíttæ in manu poténtis,*
  ita fílii iuventútis.
5Beátus vir, qui implévit pháretram suam ex ipsis:*
  non confundétur, cum loquétur inimícis suis in porta.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Psalm 126 (127)
Without the Lord, we labour in vain
If the Lord does not build the house,
  its builders labour in vain.
If the Lord does not watch over a city,
  its watchmen guard it in vain.
It is vain for you to rise before the dawn
  and go late to your rest,
  eating the bread of toil –
  to those he loves, the Lord gives sleep.
The Lord bestows sons as an heirloom,
  the fruit of the womb as a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior –
  so are the sons of one’s youth.
Happy the man who fills his quiver thus:
  when he disputes with his enemies at the gate,
  he will not be the loser.
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.

Ps 127:1-5
Pax domestica in Domino

«Benedicat te Dominus ex Sion», id est: ex Ecclesia sua” (Arnobius).

1Beátus omnis, qui timet Dóminum,*
  qui ámbulat in viis eius.
2Labóres mánuum tuárum manducábis,*
  beátus es, et bene tibi erit.
3Uxor tua sicut vitis fructífera*
  in latéribus domus tuæ;
fílii tui sicut novéllæ olivárum*
  in circúitu mensæ tuæ.
4Ecce sic benedicétur homo,*
  qui timet Dóminum.
5Benedícat tibi Dóminus ex Sion,*
  et vídeas bona Ierúsalem ómnibus diébus vitæ tuæ;
6et vídeas fílios filiórum tuórum.*
  Pax super Israel!
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Te semper idem esse, vívere et intellégere profitémur.
Psalm 127 (128)
Peaceful life in the Lord
Blessed are all who fear the Lord
  and walk in his ways.
The food you have worked for, you will eat:
  God’s blessing will bring you good things.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
  on the side of your house.
Your children will be like olive shoots,
  seated round your table.
See, this is how the man is blessed
  who fears the Lord.
May the Lord bless you from Zion:
  may you see the wealth of Jerusalem
  all the days of your life.
May you see your children’s children.
  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.
We profess that it is always one and the same thing for you to be, to live, to know.
