Hymnus
Iesu, coróna vírginum,
quem Mater illa cóncipit
quæ sola virgo párturit,
hæc vota clemens áccipe,
Qui pascis inter lília
sæptus choréis vírginum,
sponsus decórus glória
sponsísque reddens prǽmia.
Quocúmque pergis, vírgines
sequúntur, atque láudibus
post te canéntes cúrsitant
hymnósque dulces pérsonant.
Te deprecámur, lárgius
nostris adáuge méntibus
nescíre prorsus ómnia
corruptiónis vúlnera.
Iesu, tibi sit glória,
qui natus es de Vírgine,
cum Patre et almo Spíritu,
in sempitérna sǽcula.
Amen.
Hymn
All hail the power of Jesus’ name;
  Let Angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem
  To crown him Lord of all.
Crown him, ye Martyrs of your God,
  Who from his altar call;
Praise him whose way of pain ye trod,
  And crown him Lord of all.
Hail him, ye heirs of David’s line,
  Whom David Lord did call;
The God Incarnate, Man Divine,
  And crown him Lord of all.
Let every tribe and every tongue
  To him their hearts enthral,
Lift high the universal song,
  And crown him Lord of all.

Ps 62:2-9
Anima Dominum sitiens
Ad Deum vigilat, qui opera noctis reicit.
Christum líbere confíteor, Christum ardénter sítio, cum Christo iúgiter esse cúpio.
2Deus, Deus meus es tu,*
  ad te de luce vígilo.
Sitívit in te ánima mea,*
  te desiderávit caro mea.
In terra desérta et árida et inaquósa,†
  3sic in sancto appárui tibi,*
  ut vidérem virtútem tuam et glóriam tuam.
4Quóniam mélior est misericórdia tua super vitas,*
  lábia mea laudábunt te.
5Sic benedícam te in vita mea*
  et in nómine tuo levábo manus meas.
6Sicut ádipe et pinguédine repleátur ánima mea,*
  et lábiis exsultatiónis laudábit os meum.
7Cum memor ero tui super stratum meum,*
  in matutínis meditábor de te,
8quia fuísti adiútor meus,*
  et in velaménto alárum tuárum exsultábo.
9Adhǽsit ánima mea post te,*
  me suscépit déxtera tua.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Christum líbere confíteor, Christum ardénter sítio, cum Christo iúgiter esse cúpio.
Psalm 62 (63)
Thirsting for God
To you, O God, I keep vigil at dawn, to look upon your power.
O God, you are my God, I watch for you from the dawn.
My soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you.
I came to your sanctuary,
  as one in a parched and waterless land,
  so that I could see your might and your glory.
My lips will praise you, for your mercy is better than life itself.
Thus I will bless you throughout my life,
  and raise my hands in prayer to your name;
my soul will be filled as if by rich food,
  and my mouth will sing your praises and rejoice.
I will remember you as I lie in bed,
  I will think of you in the morning,
for you have been my helper,
  and I will take joy in the protection of your wings.
My soul clings to you; your right hand raises me up.
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.
To you, O God, I keep vigil at dawn, to look upon your power.

Ps 149:1-9
Exsultatio sanctorum
Filii Ecclesiæ, filii novi populi exsultent in rege suo: in Christo” (Hesychius).
Exsultábunt sancti in glória, quibus de carne et sánguine fúlgida est victória.
1Cantáte Dómino cánticum novum;*
  laus eius in ecclésia sanctórum.
2Lætétur Israel in eo, qui fecit eum,*
  et fílii Sion exsúltent in rege suo.
3Laudent nomen eius in choro,*
  in týmpano et cíthara psallant ei,
4quia beneplácitum est Dómino in pópulo suo,*
  et honorábit mansuétos in salúte.
5Iúbilent sancti in glória,*
  læténtur in cubílibus suis.
6Exaltatiónes Dei in gútture eórum*
  et gládii ancípites in mánibus eórum,
7ad faciéndam vindíctam in natiónibus,*
  castigatiónes in pópulis,
8ad alligándos reges eórum in compédibus*
  et nóbiles eórum in mánicis férreis,
9ad faciéndum in eis iudícium conscríptum:*
  glória hæc est ómnibus sanctis eius.

Psalm 149
The saints rejoice
Let Sion’s sons exult in their king.
Sing a new song to the Lord,
  his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel rejoice in its maker,
  and the sons of Zion delight in their king.
Let them praise his name with dancing,
  sing to him with timbrel and lyre,
for the Lord’s favour is upon his people,
  and he will honour the humble with victory.
Let the faithful celebrate his glory,
  rejoice even in their beds,
the praise of God in their throats;
  and swords ready in their hands,
to exact vengeance upon the nations,
  impose punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings in fetters
  and their nobles in manacles of iron,
to carry out the sentence that has been passed:
  this is the glory prepared for all his faithful.
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.
Let Sion’s sons exult in their king.

Lectio brevisCant 8:7
Aquæ multæ non potuérunt exstínguere caritátem, nec flúmina óbruent illam; si déderit homo omnem substántiam domus suæ pro dilectióne, quasi nihil despícient eum.

Song of Songs 8:7 ©
Love is something that no flood can quench, no torrents drown. Were a man to offer all the wealth of his house to buy love, contempt is all he would purchase.

℣. Tibi dixit cor meum:* Quæsívi vultum tuum. Tibi dixit.
℟. Vultum tuum, Dómine, requíram.* Quæsívi vultum tuum. Glória Patri. Tibi dixit.
Short Responsory
My heart has said of you: I have sought your presence, Lord.
My heart has said of you: I have sought your presence, Lord.
It is your face that I will continue to seek.
My heart has said of you: I have sought your presence, Lord.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
My heart has said of you: I have sought your presence, Lord.

Canticum
De Messia eiusque præcursore
Amen dico vobis, nisi convérsi fuéritis et efficiámini sicut párvuli, non intrábitis in regnum cælórum.
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*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Amen dico vobis, nisi convérsi fuéritis et efficiámini sicut párvuli, non intrábitis in regnum cælórum.
CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
Indeed I tell you that, unless you undergo a change of heart and become more like children, you will not enter my heavenly kingdom.
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.
Indeed I tell you that, unless you undergo a change of heart and become more like children, you will not enter my heavenly kingdom.

Dómine Iesu, sponse, quem vírgines sapiéntes adventúrum exspectábant,

Per intercessiónem sanctæ N., quæ virgo fuit sápiens et de número prudéntum,
— præsta nobis innocéntiam vitæ et sapiéntiam.
