Hymnus
Iesu, quadragenáriæ
dicátor abstinéntiæ,
qui ob salútem méntium
præcéperas ieiúnium,
Adésto nunc Ecclésiæ,
adésto pæniténtiæ,
qua supplicámus cérnui
peccáta nostra dílui.
Tu retroácta crímina
tua remítte grátia
et a futúris ádhibe
custódiam mitíssime,
Ut, expiáti ánnuis
compunctiónis áctibus,
tendámus ad paschália
digne colénda gáudia.
Te rerum univérsitas,
clemens, adóret, Trínitas,
et nos novi per véniam
novum canámus cánticum. Amen.
Hymn
God, of thy pity, unto us thy children
Bend down thine ear in thine own loving kindness,
And all thy people’s prayers and vows ascending
  Hear, we beseech thee.
Look down in mercy from thy seat of glory,
Pour on our souls the radiance of thy presence,
Drive from our weary hearts the shades of darkness,
  Lightening our footsteps.
Free us from sin by might of thy great loving,
Cleanse thou the sordid, loose the fettered spirit,
Spare every sinner, raise with thine own right hand
  All who are fallen.
Glory to God the Father everlasting,
Glory for ever to the Sole-begotten,
With whom the Holy Spirit through the ages
  Reigneth co-equal.

Ps 114:1-9
Gratiarum actio

Per multas tribulationes oportet nos intrare in regnum Dei” (Act 14, 22).

Dómine, líbera ánimam meam de morte, pedes meos a lapsu.
1Diléxi, quóniam exáudit Dóminus*
  vocem deprecatiónis meæ.
2Quia inclinávit aurem suam mihi,*
  cum in diébus meis invocábam.
3Circumdedérunt me funes mortis,*
  et angústiæ inférni invenérunt me.
Tribulatiónem et dolórem invéni†
  4et nomen Dómini invocábam:*
  «O Dómine, líbera ánimam meam».
5Miséricors Dóminus et iustus,*
  et Deus noster miserétur.
6Custódiens párvulos Dóminus;*
  humiliátus sum, et salvum me fáciet.
7Convértere, ánima mea, in réquiem tuam,*
  quia Dóminus benefécit tibi;
8quia erípuit ánimam meam de morte,†
  óculos meos a lácrimis,*
  pedes meos a lapsu.
9Ambulábo coram Dómino*
  in regióne vivórum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Dómine, líbera ánimam meam de morte, pedes meos a lapsu.
Psalm 114 (116A)
Thanksgiving
Lord, keep my soul from death, my feet from stumbling.
I love the Lord, for he has heard
  the cry of my appeal;
because he has turned his ear to me as I call on him,
  day by day.
The ropes of death surrounded me,
  Hell held me tight,
I had found pain and tribulation –
  but I called on the Lord’s name:
  “O Lord, free my soul.”
The Lord is compassionate and just;
  our God takes pity on us.
The Lord cares for the simple –
  I was brought low, but he saved me.
Return, my soul, to your rest,
  for the Lord has looked after you;
he has rescued my spirit from death, my eyes from tears,
  he has saved my feet from stumbling.
I shall walk in the presence of the Lord
  in the land of the living.
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.
Lord, keep my soul from death, my feet from stumbling.

Ps 120:1-8
Custos populi

Non esurient amplius, neque sitient amplius, neque cadet super illos sol neque ullus æstus” (Ap 7, 16).

Auxílium meum a Dómino, qui fecit cælum et terram.
1Levábo óculos meos in montes:*
  unde véniet auxílium mihi?
2Auxílium meum a Dómino,*
  qui fecit cælum et terram.
3Non dabit in commotiónem pedem tuum,*
  neque dormitábit, qui custódit te.
4Ecce non dormitábit neque dórmiet,*
  qui custódit Israel.
5Dóminus custódit te,†
  Dóminus umbráculum tuum,*
  ad manum déxteram tuam.
6Per diem sol non percútiet te,*
  neque luna per noctem.
7Dóminus custódiet te ab omni malo;*
  custódiet ánimam tuam Dóminus.
8Dóminus custódiet intróitum tuum et éxitum tuum*
  ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Auxílium meum a Dómino, qui fecit cælum et terram.
Psalm 120 (121)
The guardian of the people
My help shall come from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
I shall lift my eyes to the hills:
  where is my help to come from?
My help will come from the Lord,
  who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip:
  he will not doze, your guardian.
Behold, he will not doze or sleep,
  the guardian of Israel.
The Lord is your guardian, the Lord is your shade;
  he is at your right hand.
By day the sun will not strike you;
  nor the moon by night.
The Lord will guard you from all harm;
  the Lord will guard your life.
The Lord will guard your coming and your going
  both now and 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.
My help shall come from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Lectio brevisIac 5:16,19-20
Confitémini altérutrum peccáta et oráte pro ínvicem, ut sanémini. Multum enim valet deprecátio iusti óperans. Fratres mei, si quis ex vobis erráverit a veritáte et convérterit quis eum, scire debet quóniam, qui convérti fécerit peccatórem ab erróre viæ eius, salvábit ánimam suam a morte et opériet multitúdinem peccatórum.
Short Reading
James 5:16,19-20 ©
Confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, and this will cure you: the heartfelt prayer of a good man works very powerfully. My brothers, if one of you strays away from the truth, and another brings him back to it, he may be sure that anyone who can bring back a sinner from the wrong way that he has taken will be saving a soul from death and covering up a great number of sins.

Responsorium breve
℣. Ego dixi: Dómine,* Miserére mei. Ego.
℟. Sana ánimam meam, quia peccávi tibi.* Miserére mei. Glória Patri. Ego.

Canticum
Exsultatio animæ in Domino
Quæréntes Iesum tenére, timuérunt turbam, quia sicut prophétam eum habébant.
Magníficat*
  ánima mea Dóminum,
et exsultávit spíritus meus*
  in Deo salvatóre meo,
quia respéxit humilitátem ancíllæ suæ.*
  Ecce enim ex hoc beátam me dicent omnes generatiónes,
quia fecit mihi magna, qui potens est,*
  et sanctum nomen eius,
et misericórdia eius in progénies et progénies*
  timéntibus eum.
Fecit poténtiam in bráchio suo,*
  dispérsit supérbos mente cordis sui;
depósuit poténtes de sede*
  et exaltávit húmiles;
esuriéntes implévit bonis*
  et dívites dimísit inánes.
Suscépit Israel púerum suum,*
  recordátus misericórdiæ,
sicut locútus est ad patres nostros,*
  Abraham et sémini eius in sǽcula.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Quæréntes Iesum tenére, timuérunt turbam, quia sicut prophétam eum habébant.
CanticleMagnificat
My soul rejoices in the Lord
They wanted to arrest Jesus, but they were afraid of the people, who looked on him as a prophet.
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
  and my spirit rejoices in God, my salvation.
For he has shown me such favour –
  me, his lowly handmaiden.
Now all generations will call me blessed,
  because the mighty one has done great things for me.
His name is holy,
  his mercy lasts for generation after generation
  for those who revere him.
He has put forth his strength:
  he has scattered the proud and conceited,
  torn princes from their thrones;
  but lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things;
  the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel,
  he has remembered his mercy as he promised to our fathers,
  to Abraham and his children 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.
They wanted to arrest Jesus, but they were afraid of the people, who looked on him as a prophet.

et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem;
sed líbera nos a malo.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
  hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
  Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.

  as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
  but deliver us from evil.

Da, quǽsumus, omnípotens Deus, ut, sacro nos purificánte pæniténtiæ stúdio, sincéris méntibus ad sancta ventúra fácias perveníre.

The Lord bless us, and keep us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.
  Amen.
