Hymnus
Magnis prophétæ vócibus
veníre Christum núntiant,
lætæ salútis prǽvia,
qua nos redémit, grátia.
Hinc mane nostrum prómicat
et corda læta exǽstuant,
cum vox fidélis pérsonat
prænuntiátrix glóriæ.
Advéntus hic primus fuit,
puníre quo non sǽculum
venit, sed ulcus térgere,
salvándo quod períerat.
At nos secúndus prǽmonet
adésse Christum iánuis,
sanctis corónas réddere
cælíque regna pándere.
Ætérna lux promíttitur
sidúsque salvans prómitur;
iam nos iubar præfúlgidum
ad ius vocat cæléstium.
Te, Christe, solum quǽrimus
vidére, sicut es Deus,
ut perpes hæc sit vísio
perénne laudis cánticum.
Amen.
Hymn
O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!
O come, now Wisdom from on high,
Who orders all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!
O come, O come, now Lord of might,
Who to your tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times you gave the law,
In cloud, and majesty, and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!

Ps 50:3-21
Miserere mei, Deus

Renovari spiritu mentis vestræ et induere novum hominem” (Eph 4, 23-24).

De Sion véniet qui regnatúrus est: Dóminus, Emmánuel magnum nomen eius.
3Miserére mei, Deus,*
  secúndum misericórdiam tuam;
et secúndum multitúdinem miseratiónum tuárum*
  dele iniquitátem meam.
4Amplius lava me ab iniquitáte mea*
  et a peccáto meo munda me.
5Quóniam iniquitátem meam ego cognósco,*
  et peccátum meum contra me est semper.
6Tibi, tibi soli peccávi*
  et malum coram te feci,
ut iustus inveniáris in senténtia tua*
  et æquus in iudício tuo.
7Ecce enim in iniquitáte generátus sum,*
  et in peccáto concépit me mater mea.
8Ecce enim veritátem in corde dilexísti*
  et in occúlto sapiéntiam manifestásti mihi.
9Aspérges me hyssópo, et mundábor;*
  lavábis me, et super nivem dealbábor.
10Audíre me fácies gáudium et lætítiam,*
  et exsultábunt ossa, quæ contrivísti.
11Avérte fáciem tuam a peccátis meis*
  et omnes iniquitátes meas dele.
12Cor mundum crea in me, Deus,*
  et spíritum firmum ínnova in viscéribus meis.
13Ne proícias me a fácie tua*
  et spíritum sanctum tuum ne áuferas a me.
14Redde mihi lætítiam salutáris tui*
  et spíritu promptíssimo confírma me.
15Docébo iníquos vias tuas,*
  et ímpii ad te converténtur.
16Líbera me de sanguínibus, Deus, Deus salútis meæ,*
  et exsultábit lingua mea iustítiam tuam.
17Dómine, lábia mea apéries,*
  et os meum annuntiábit laudem tuam.
18Non enim sacrifício delectáris,*
  holocáustum, si ófferam, non placébit.
19Sacrifícium Deo spíritus contribulátus,*
  cor contrítum et humiliátum, Deus, non despícies.
20Benígne fac, Dómine, in bona voluntáte tua Sion,*
  ut ædificéntur muri Ierúsalem.
21Tunc acceptábis sacrifícium iustítiæ, oblatiónes et holocáusta;*
  tunc impónent super altáre tuum vítulos.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
De Sion véniet qui regnatúrus est: Dóminus, Emmánuel magnum nomen eius.

Psalm 50 (51)
God, have mercy on me

The one who is to rule will come from Sion: ‘The Lord, Immanuel’ is his great name.
Take pity on me, Lord, in your mercy;
  in your abundance of mercy wipe out my guilt.
Wash me ever more from my guilt
  and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know how guilty I am:
  my sin is always before me.
Against you, you alone have I sinned,
  and I have done evil in your sight.
Know this, so that you may give just sentence
  and an unbiased judgement.
See, I was conceived in guilt,
  in sin my mother conceived me;
but you love truth in the heart,
  and deep within me you have shown me your wisdom.
You will sprinkle me with hyssop, and I will be made clean;
  you will wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
You will make me hear the sound of joy and gladness;
  the bones you have crushed will rejoice.
Turn your face away from my sins
  and wipe out all my transgressions;
create a pure heart in me, God,
  put a steadfast spirit into me.
Do not send me away from your presence,
  or withdraw your holy spirit from me;
give me again the joy of your salvation,
  and be ready to strengthen me with your spirit.
I will teach the unjust your ways,
  and the impious will return to you.
Free me from the guilt of bloodshed, God, God my saviour,
  and my voice will glory in your justice.
Open my lips, Lord,
  and my mouth will proclaim your praise;
for you do not delight in sacrifices:
  if I offered you a burnt offering, it would not please you.
The true sacrifice is a broken spirit:
  a contrite and humble heart, O God, you will not refuse.
Be pleased, Lord, to look kindly on Zion,
  so that the walls of Jerusalem can be rebuilt,
Then indeed you will accept the proper sacrifices, gifts and burnt offerings;
  then indeed will bullocks be laid upon your altar.
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 one who is to rule will come from Sion: ‘The Lord, Immanuel’ is his great name.

CanticumIer 14:17-21

Lamentatio populi tempore famis et belli

Appropinquavit regnum Dei; pænitemini et credite Evangelio” (Mc 1, 15).

Constántes estóte, vidébitis auxílium Dómini super vos.
17Dedúcant óculi mei lácrimam per noctem et diem,*
  et non táceant,
quóniam contritióne magna contríta est virgo fília pópuli mei,*
  plaga péssima veheménter.
18Si egréssus fúero ad agros, ecce occísi gládio;*
  et si introíero in civitátem, ecce attenuáti fame:
prophéta quoque et sacérdos*
  abiérunt per terram nesciéntes.
19Numquid proíciens abiecísti Iudam,*
  aut Sion abomináta est ánima tua?
Quare ergo percussísti nos,*
  ita ut nulla sit sánitas?
Exspectávimus pacem, et non est bonum,*
  et tempus curatiónis, et ecce turbátio.
20Cognóvimus, Dómine, impietátes nostras,†
  iniquitátes patrum nostrórum,*
  quia peccávimus tibi.
21Ne des nos in oppróbrium propter nomen tuum,*
  ne fácias contuméliam sólio glóriæ tuæ;
recordáre,*
  ne írritum fácias fœdus tuum nobíscum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Constántes estóte, vidébitis auxílium Dómini super vos.
CanticleJeremiah 14

Lamentation of the people in the time of famine and war

Stand steadfast. You will see the helping power of the Lord.
Let my eyes shed tears, night and day, let them never cease,
  for the daughter of my people is afflicted with a great affliction,
  with the worst of all wounds.
If I go out into the fields – behold, those slain by the sword;
  if I go into the city – behold, those wasted by famine.
Prophet and priest go through the land, they know nothing.
Surely you have not rejected Judah, thrust him from you?
Surely Zion has not become hateful to your heart?
Why have you struck us down beyond all hope of healing?
We have looked for peace, but no good came;
  we have looked for the time of healing, but trouble came instead.
We acknowledge, O Lord, our wickedness, and the evil done by our fathers:
  we acknowledge that we have sinned.
Do not make us a reproach, for your name’s sake,
  and do not make us a disgrace before the throne of your glory.
Remember the covenant you made with us: do not bring it to an end.
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.
Stand steadfast. You will see the helping power of the Lord.

Ps 99:1-5
Gaudium in templum ingredientium

Redemptos iubet Dominus victoriæ carmen canere” (S. Athanasius).

Ego autem ad Dóminum aspíciam et exspectábo Deum, salvatórem meum.
2Iubiláte Dómino, omnis terra,*
  servíte Dómino in lætítia;
introíte in conspéctu eius*
  in exsultatióne.
3Scitóte quóniam Dóminus ipse est Deus;†
  ipse fecit nos, et ipsíus sumus,*
  pópulus eius et oves páscuæ eius.
4Introíte portas eius in confessióne,†
  átria eius in hymnis,*
  confitémini illi, benedícite nómini eius.
5Quóniam suávis est Dóminus;†
  in ætérnum misericórdia eius,*
  et usque in generatiónem et generatiónem véritas eius.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Ego autem ad Dóminum aspíciam et exspectábo Deum, salvatórem meum.

Psalm 99 (100)
Enter the Temple with joy

I look to the Lord; I will await the God who saves me.
Rejoice in the Lord, all the earth,
  and serve him with joy.
Exult as you enter his presence.
Know that the Lord is God.
He made us and we are his
 – his people, the sheep of his flock.
Cry out his praises as you enter his gates,
  fill his courtyards with songs.
Proclaim him and bless his name;
  for the Lord is our delight.
His mercy lasts for ever,
  his faithfulness through all the ages.
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.
I look to the Lord; I will await the God who saves me.

Canticum

De Messia eiusque præcursore

Missus est Gábriel ángelus ad Maríam Vírginem desponsátam Ioseph.
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,
salútem ex inimícis nostris*
  et de manu ómnium, qui odérunt nos;
ad faciéndam misericórdiam cum pátribus nostris*
  et memorári testaménti sui sancti,
iusiurándum, quod iurávit ad Abraham patrem nostrum,*
  datúrum se nobis,
ut sine timóre, de manu inimicórum liberáti,*
  serviámus illi
in sanctitáte et iustítia coram ipso*
  ómnibus diébus nostris.
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*
  ad dirigéndos pedes nostros in viam pacis.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*

CanticleBenedictus

The Messiah and his forerunner

The angel Gabriel was sent to the Virgin Mary, who was betrothed to Joseph.
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.
The angel Gabriel was sent to the Virgin Mary, who was betrothed to Joseph.
