Hymnus
Hæc hora, quæ resplénduit
crucísque solvit núbila,
mundum ténebris éxuens,
reddens seréna lúmina.
Hæc hora, qua resúscitans
Iesus sepúlcris córpora,
prodíre mortis líbera
iussit refúso spíritu.
Nováta sæcla crédimus
mortis solútis légibus,
vitæ beátæ múnera
cursum perénnem cúrrere.
Iesu, tibi sit glória,
qui morte victa prǽnites,
cum Patre et almo Spíritu,
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

Meditatio verbi Domini in lege
Hæc est caritas Dei, ut mandata eius servemus” (1 Io 5, 3).
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
1Beáti immaculáti in via,*
  qui ámbulant in lege Dómini.
2Beáti, qui servant testimónia eius,*
  in toto corde exquírunt eum.
3Non enim operáti sunt iniquitátem,*
  in viis eius ambulavérunt.
4Tu mandásti*
  mandáta tua custodíri nimis.
5Utinam dirigántur viæ meæ*
  ad custodiéndas iustificatiónes tuas!
6Tunc non confúndar,*
  cum perspéxero in ómnibus præcéptis tuis.
7Confitébor tibi in directióne cordis,*
  in eo quod dídici iudícia iustítiæ tuæ.
8Iustificatiónes tuas custódiam,*
  non me derelínquas usquequáque.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
Psalm 118(119): 1-8
The word of the Lord in the law
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
Happy are they who follow the pure path,
  who walk in the law of the Lord.
Happy are they who obey his decrees
  and seek him out with all their heart.
They do not do evil:
  they walk in his paths.
You have made your commandments
  for us to obey them.
If only I can direct my paths
  to conform to your statutes!
Then I will not be shamed
  as I hold to your precepts.
I shall proclaim you by right living
  since I have learnt your just decrees.
I shall hold close to your statutes:
  Lord, never abandon me.
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.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

Psalmus 12:2-7
Lamentatio iusti Domino fidentis
Deus spei repleat vos omni gaudio” (Rom 15, 13).
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
2Usquequo, Dómine, obliviscéris me in finem?*
  Usquequo avértes fáciem tuam a me?
3Usquequo ponam consília in ánima mea,†
  dolórem in corde meo per diem?*
  Usquequo exaltábitur inimícus meus super me?
4Réspice et exáudi me, Dómine Deus meus.*
  Illúmina óculos meos, ne quando obdórmiam in morte,
5ne quando dicat inimícus meus:†
  «Præválui advérsus eum!»;*
  neque exsúltent, qui tríbulant me, si motus fúero.
6Ego autem in misericórdia tua sperávi.†
  Exsultábit cor meum in salutári tuo,*
  cantábo Dómino, qui bona tríbuit mihi.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
Psalm 12 (13)
Lament of a righteous man who trusts in God
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
How long, O Lord, will you forget me?
  How long will you turn your face from me?
How long must I bear grief in my soul,
  how long must I carry sadness in my heart
  by day and by night?
How long will my enemy be stronger than me?
Turn to me and hear me, O Lord my God.
  Give light to my eyes and save me from the sleep of death.
Or my enemy will say, ‘I have prevailed against him!’
  and those who torment me will rejoice at my stumbling.
But I put my hope in your loving kindness.
  My heart will rejoice at your saving power.
  I shall sing to the Lord, who has granted good things to me.
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.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

Psalmus 13:1-7
Impiorum stultitia
Ubi abundavit peccatum, superabundavit gratia” (Rom 5, 20).
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
1Dixit insípiens in corde suo: «Non est Deus».†
  Corrúpti sunt et abominatiónes operáti sunt;*
  non est qui fáciat bonum.
2Dóminus de cælo prospéxit super fílios hóminum,*
  ut vidéret si est intéllegens aut requírens Deum.
3Omnes declinavérunt, simul corrúpti sunt;*
  non est qui fáciat bonum, non est usque ad unum.
4Nonne scient omnes, qui operántur iniquitátem,*
  qui dévorant plebem meam sicut escam panis?
Dóminum non invocavérunt,†
  5illic trepidavérunt timóre,*
  quóniam Deus cum generatióne iusta est.
6Vos consílium ínopis confundétis,*
  Dóminus autem spes eius est.
7Quis dabit ex Sion salutáre Israel?†
  Cum convérterit Dóminus captivitátem plebis suæ,*
  exsultábit Iacob et lætábitur Israel.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
Psalm 13 (14)
The folly of the lawless
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’.
  They are corrupt and they do vile things:
  not one of them does good.
From heaven the Lord looks down on the sons of men
  to see if any understand, and seek God.
All have fallen away, each as corrupt as the other.
  Not one of them does good, not even one.
They must know what they are doing, those who do evil,
  who eat up my people like so much bread.
They did not call on the Lord,
  so they tremble with fear.
  for God is on the side of the righteous.
You persecute the poor,
  but God is on the side of the poor.
Who will bring Israel salvation from Zion?
  When the Lord delivers his people from captivity,
  Jacob will exult and Israel will rejoice.
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.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

Psalmus 125:1-6
Gaudium et spes in Deo
Sicuti socii passionum estis, sic eritis et consolationis” (2 Cor 1, 7).
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
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.
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
Psalm 125 (126)
Gladness and hope in the Lord
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
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.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

Psalmus 126:1-5
Vanus labor sine Domino
Dei ædificatio estis” (1 Cor 3, 9).
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
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.
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
Psalm 126 (127)
Without the Lord, we labour in vain
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
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.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

Psalmus 127:1-5
Pax domestica in Domino
«Benedicat te Dominus ex Sion», id est: ex Ecclesia sua” (Arnobius).
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
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.

Peaceful life in the Lord

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.
