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).
Christum, pastórum príncipem, 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.
Christum, pastórum príncipem, veníte, adorémus.*
Invitatory PsalmPsalm 94 (95)
Christ is the chief shepherd, the leader of his flock: 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.
Christ is the chief shepherd, the leader of his flock: 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.

Hymn
The Father’s glory, Christ our light,
With love and mercy comes to span
The vast abyss of sin between
The God of holiness and man.
Christ yesterday and Christ today
For all eternity the same,
The image of our hidden God;
Eternal Wisdom is his name.
He keeps his word from age to age,
Is with us to the end of days,
A cloud by day, a flame by night,
To go before us on his ways.
We bless you, Father, fount of light,
And Christ, your well-beloved Son,
Who with the Spirit dwell in us:
Immortal Trinity in One.

Psalmus 56:2-12
In afflictione oratio matutina
Passionem Domini cantat iste psalmus” (S. Augustinus).
Exsúrge, psaltérium et cíthara: excitábo auróram.
2Miserére mei, Deus, miserére mei,*
  quóniam in te cónfugit ánima mea;
et in umbra alárum tuárum confúgiam,*
  donec tránseant insídiæ.
3Clamábo ad Deum Altíssimum,*
  Deum, qui benefécit mihi.
4Mittet de cælo et liberábit me;†
  dabit in oppróbrium conculcántes me.*
  Mittet Deus misericórdiam suam et veritátem suam.
5Anima mea recúmbit in médio catulórum leónum*
  devorántium fílios hóminum.
Dentes eórum arma et sagíttæ*
  et lingua eórum gládius acútus.
6Exaltáre super cælos, Deus,*
  super omnem terram glória tua.
7Láqueum paravérunt pédibus meis,*
  et incurvávit se ánima mea;
fodérunt ante fáciem meam fóveam,*
  et ipsi incidérunt in eam.
8Parátum cor meum, Deus,†
  parátum cor meum;*
  9cantábo et psalmum dicam.
Exsúrge, glória mea,†
  exsúrge, psaltérium et cíthara,*
  excitábo auróram.
10Confitébor tibi in pópulis, Dómine,*
  et psalmum dicam tibi in natiónibus,
11quóniam magnificáta est usque ad cælos misericórdia tua*
  et usque ad nubes véritas tua.
12Exaltáre super cælos, Deus,*
  super omnem terram glória tua.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Exsúrge, psaltérium et cíthara: excitábo auróram.
Psalm 56 (57)
Morning prayer in time of affliction
Awake, lyre and harp: I will awaken the dawn.
Have mercy on me, God, have mercy.
  My soul flies to you for refuge.
I will hide in the shelter of your wings
  until the time of ambush is past.
I will cry to God the Most High,
  to the God who cares for me.
He will send help from heaven to set me free.
  He will disgrace those who trample me underfoot.
  He will send forth his mercy and faithfulness.
My soul lies among lion-cubs
  that would devour the children of men.
Their teeth are spears and arrows,
  their tongues are pointed swords.
May you be exalted above the heavens, O God;
  let your glory cover the whole earth.
They prepared a trap for my feet;
  my soul was bent double under its burden;
they dug a pit in front of me
 – but they fell into it themselves.
My heart is ready, God.
  My heart is ready.
  I will offer you music and song.
Awake, my glory,
  awake, lyre and harp.
  I will awaken the dawn.
I will proclaim you among the peoples, Lord,
  and make music for you among the nations,
for your mercy reaches as high as the heavens,
  your faithfulness to the clouds.
May you be exalted above the heavens, O God;
  let your glory cover the earth.
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.
Awake, lyre and harp: I will awaken the dawn.

Canticum
Jeremiah 31:10-14
Populi liberati felicitas
Iesus moriturus erat ... ut filios Dei, qui erant dispersi, congregaret in unum” (Io 11, 51. 52).
Pópulus meus, ait Dóminus, bonis meis adimplébitur.
10Audíte verbum Dómini, gentes,*
  et annuntiáte in ínsulis, quæ procul sunt, et dícite:
«Qui dispérsit Israel, congregábit eum*
  et custódiet eum sicut pastor gregem suum».
11Redémit enim Dóminus Iacob*
  et liberávit eum de manu potentióris.
12Et vénient et laudábunt in monte Sion*
  et cónfluent ad bona Dómini,
super fruménto et vino et óleo*
  et fetu pécorum et armentórum;
erítque ánima eórum quasi hortus irríguus,*
  et ultra non esúrient.
13Tunc lætábitur virgo in choro,*
  iúvenes et senes simul.
«Et convértam luctum eórum in gáudium*
  et consolábor eos et lætificábo a dolóre suo.
14Et inebriábo ánimam sacerdótum pinguédine,*
  et pópulus meus bonis meis adimplébitur».
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Pópulus meus, ait Dóminus, bonis meis adimplébitur.
CanticleJeremiah 31
The joy of those whom God sets free
Thus says the Lord: my people shall be filled with my good things.
All you nations, listen to the word of the Lord,
  proclaim it in the farthest islands:
“He who scattered his people Israel
  has brought them back together.
  He will care for them as a shepherd tends his flock.”
For the Lord has redeemed Jacob
  and freed him from the hand of his conqueror.
They will come and sing praises on Mount Zion,
  they will flood in to receive the good things of the Lord,
  grain, and wine, and oil,
  and the young of both herd and flock.
Their spirit will be like a richly watered garden,
  and they will hunger no more.
The young girl will dance for joy,
  young men and old men too.
“I will turn their weeping into gladness,” says the Lord,
  “I will comfort them and give them joy after sorrow.
  I will overwhelm my priests with rich food,
  and my good things will fill my people to overflowing.”
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.
Thus says the Lord: my people shall be filled with my good things.

Psalmus 47:2-15
Gratiarum actio pro populi salute
Sustulit me in spiritu super montem magnum ... et ostendit mihi civitatem sanctam Ierusalem” (Ap 21, 10).
Magnus Dóminus et laudábilis nimis in civitáte Dei nostri. †
2Magnus Dóminus et laudábilis nimis*
  in civitáte Dei nostri.
3Mons sanctus eius collis speciósus,*
  exsultátio univérsæ terræ.
Mons Sion, extréma aquilónis,*
  cívitas regis magni.
4Deus in dómibus eius notus*
  factus est ut refúgium.
5Quóniam ecce reges congregáti sunt,*
  convenérunt in unum.
6Ipsi cum vidérunt, sic admiráti sunt,*
  conturbáti sunt, diffugérunt;
7illic tremor apprehéndit eos,*
  dolóres ut parturiéntis.
8In spíritu oriéntis*
  cónteres naves Tharsis.
9Sicut audívimus, sic vídimus in civitáte Dómini virtútum,†
  in civitáte Dei nostri;*
  Deus fundávit eam in ætérnum.
10Recogitámus, Deus, misericórdiam tuam*
  in médio templi tui.
11Secúndum nomen tuum, Deus,†
  sic et laus tua in fines terræ;*
  iustítia plena est déxtera tua.
12Lætétur mons Sion,†
  et exsúltent fíliæ Iudæ*
  propter iudícia tua.
13Circúmdate Sion et complectímini eam,*
  numeráte turres eius.
14Pónite corda vestra in virtúte eius†
  et percúrrite domos eius,*
  ut enarrétis in progénie áltera.
15Quóniam hic est Deus, Deus noster†
  in ætérnum et in sǽculum sǽculi;*
  ipse ducet nos in sǽcula.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.

Psalm 47 (48)
Thanksgiving for the safety of the people
The Lord is great and worthy to be praised in the city of our God.
The Lord is great and greatly to be praised
  in the city of our God.
His holy mountain is a beautiful sight,
  the joy of all the earth.
Mount Zion is at its northernmost edge,
  the city of the great king.
Here among its palaces,
  God has shown himself as its refuge.
For the kings assembled,
  made alliance against it –
but when they saw it, they were amazed.
  Panic took them and they scattered.
Trembling took hold of them,
  pain like that of childbirth.
With the east wind
  you will destroy the ships of Tarshish.
What we had heard, we saw in the city of the Lord of hosts,
  in the city of our God,
  which God has founded for ever.
We ponder your mercy, O God,
  as we stand in your temple.
Your name, O Lord, and your praise
  will reach to the ends of the earth.
  Your right hand delivers justice.
Let Mount Zion be glad
  and the daughters of Judah rejoice,
  because of your judgements.
Go round Zion, see it all,
  count every tower.
Feel its strength,
  visit its palaces,
  so that you can tell the next generation –
Here is God, our God,
  here he remains for ever;
  and for ever he will lead us and guide us.
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 great and worthy to be praised in the city of our God.

Lectio brevisIsaiah 66:1-2
Hæc dicit Dóminus: Cælum thronus meus, terra autem scabéllum pedum meórum. Quæ ista domus, quam ædificábitis mihi, et quis iste locus quiétis meæ? Omnia hæc manus mea fecit et mea sunt univérsa ista, dicit Dóminus. Ad hunc autem respíciam, ad paupérculum et contrítum spíritu et treméntem sermónes meos.
Short ReadingIsaiah 66:1-2 ©
Thus says the Lord:
With heaven my throne
and earth my footstool,
what house could you build me,
what place could you make for my rest?
All of this was made by my hand
and all this is mine – it is the Lord who speaks.
But my eyes are drawn to the man
of humbled and contrite spirit,
who trembles at my word.

Canticum
De Messia eiusque præcursore
Utinam possim cognóscere Christum et virtútem resurrectiónis eius et societátem passiónum illíus!
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*

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
How I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection! I wish to have part in his passion.
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.
How I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection! I wish to have part in his passion.
