Hymnus
Deus, creátor ómnium
políque rector, véstiens
diem decóro lúmine,
noctem sopóris grátia,
Artus solútos ut quies
reddat labóris úsui
mentésque fessas állevet
luctúsque solvat ánxios,
Grates perácto iam die
et noctis exórtu preces,
voti reos ut ádiuves,
hymnum canéntes sólvimus.
Te cordis ima cóncinant,
te vox canóra cóncrepet,
te díligat castus amor,
te mens adóret sóbria,
Ut cum profúnda cláuserit
diem calígo nóctium,
fides ténebras nésciat
et nox fide relúceat.
Christum rogámus et Patrem,
Christi Patrísque Spíritum;
unum potens per ómnia,
fove precántes, Trínitas. Amen.
Hymn
O Light serene of God the Father’s glory,
To you, O Christ, we sing,
And with the evening star, at hour of sunset,
Our worship bring.
To Father, Son and God’s most Holy Spirit,
Eternal praise is due.
O Christ, who gave your life, the world gives glory
And thanks to you.

Ps 112:1-9
Laudabile nomen Domini
Deposuit potentes de sede et exaltavit humiles” (Lc 1, 52).
A solis ortu usque ad occásum, laudábile nomen Dómini.
1Laudáte, púeri Dómini,*
  laudáte nomen Dómini.
2Sit nomen Dómini benedíctum*
  ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum.
3A solis ortu usque ad occásum*
  laudábile nomen Dómini.
4Excélsus super omnes gentes Dóminus,*
  super cælos glória eius.
5Quis sicut Dóminus Deus noster, qui in altis hábitat*
  6et se inclínat, ut respíciat in cælum et in terram?
7Súscitans de terra ínopem,*
  de stércore érigens páuperem,
8ut cóllocet eum cum princípibus,*
  cum princípibus pópuli sui.
9Qui habitáre facit stérilem in domo,*
  matrem filiórum lætántem.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
A solis ortu usque ad occásum, laudábile nomen Dómini.
Psalm 112 (113)
Praise of the Lord's name
From the rising of the sun to its setting, great is the name of the Lord.
Praise, servants of the Lord,
  praise the name of the Lord.
Let the Lord’s name be blessed,
  now and for ever.
From the sun’s rising to its setting,
  the Lord’s name is to be praised.
The Lord is high over all peoples,
  his glory is above the heavens.
Who is like the Lord our God, who lives on high,
  who bends down to watch over heaven and earth?
He raises the weak from the ground,
  the poor from the dunghill,
raises them among the princes,
  the princes of his people.
He gives the barren woman a household,
  makes her the happy mother of children.
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.
From the rising of the sun to its setting, great is the name of the Lord.

Ps 115:10-19
Gratiarum actio in templo
Per ipsum (Christum) offeramus hostiam laudis semper Deo” (Hebr 13, 15).
Cálicem salutáris accípiam et nomen Dómini invocábo.
10Crédidi, étiam cum locútus sum:*
  «Ego humiliátus sum nimis».

  «Omnis homo mendax».
12Quid retríbuam Dómino*
  pro ómnibus, quæ retríbuit mihi?
13Cálicem salutáris accípiam*
  et nomen Dómini invocábo.
14Vota mea Dómino reddam*
  coram omni pópulo eius.
15Pretiósa in conspéctu Dómini*
  mors sanctórum eius.
16O Dómine, ego servus tuus,*
  ego servus tuus et fílius ancíllæ tuæ.
Dirupísti víncula mea:†
  17tibi sacrificábo hóstiam laudis*
  et nomen Dómini invocábo.
18Vota mea Dómino reddam*
  coram omni pópulo eius,
19in átriis domus Dómini,*
  in médio tui, Ierúsalem.
Glória Patri et Fílio*

Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*

Psalm 115 (116B)
Thanksgiving in the Temple
I will take the chalice of salvation, and I will call on the name of the Lord.
Still I trusted, even when I said
  “I am greatly afflicted,”
when I said in my terror,
  “all men are liars.”
How shall I repay the Lord
  for all he has done for me?
I will take up the cup of salvation
  and call on the name of the Lord.
I will fulfil my vows to the Lord
  before all his people.
Precious in the sight of the Lord
  is the death of his faithful.
O Lord, I am your servant,
  your maidservant’s son.
You have torn apart my chains:
  I will make you a sacrifice of praise,
  I will call on the name of the Lord.
I will fulfil my vows to the Lord
  before all his people,
in the courts of the house of the Lord,
  within your walls, Jerusalem.
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 will take the chalice of salvation, and I will call on the name of the Lord.

CanticumPhil2:6-11
De Christo, servo Dei
Humiliávit semetípsum Dóminus Iesus, propter quod et Deus exaltávit illum in sǽcula.
6Christus Iesus, cum in forma Dei esset,*
  non rapínam arbitrátus est esse se æquálem Deo,
7sed semetípsum exinanívit
  formam servi accípiens,†
  in similitúdinem hóminum factus;*
  et hábitu invéntus ut homo,
8humiliávit semetípsum†

CanticlePhilippians 2
Christ, God's servant
The Lord Jesus humbled himself: therefore God has highly exalted him for ever.
Jesus Christ, although he shared God’s nature,
  did not try to cling to his equality with God;
but emptied himself, took on the form of a slave,
  and became like a man:
not in appearance only,
  for he humbled himself by accepting death,
  even death on a cross.
For this, God has raised him high,
  and given him the name that is above every name,
so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bend,
  in heaven, on earth, and under the earth,
and every tongue will proclaim
  “Jesus Christ is Lord,”
  to the glory of God the Father.
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 Jesus humbled himself: therefore God has highly exalted him for ever.

Canticum
Exsultatio animæ in Domino
Dum transíret Dóminus per médios fines Tyri, addúcunt ei surdum et mutum et deprecántur eum ut impónat illi manum.
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 sæcula.
Glória Patri et Fílio*

Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*

My soul rejoices in the Lord
When Jesus was returning from the district of Tyre, they brought him a deaf man who had an impediment in his speech; and they asked him to lay his hand on him. (Year B)
Or: Where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there in their midst, says the Lord.
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.

Preces
Christus pópuli esuriéntis misértus est et prodígia pro illo sui operátus est amóris. Quorum mémores pia devotióne eum precémur:
Amórem tuum osténde nobis, Dómine.
Confitémur, Dómine, ómnia benefícia nobis hódie de tua bonitáte processísse:
— ne revertántur ad te vácua, sed fructum áfferant in corde bono.
Lux et salus ómnium géntium, custódi testes quos in univérsum orbem misísti,
— Spíritus in eis ignem accénde.
Fac ut mundum ad præcelléntem dignitátem ipsíus omnes magis confórment,
— quátenus, te regénte, urgentióribus ætátis nostræ postulatiónibus generóse respóndeant.
Animárum médice et córporum, ægrótos álleva, moriéntibus adésto,
— et in tuis miseratiónibus nos vísita et réfove.
Defúnctos inter beátos annumeráre dignéris,
— quorum nómina sunt in libro vitæ.

Pater noster, qui es in cælis:
sanctificétur nomen tuum;
advéniat regnum tuum;
fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidiánum da nobis hódie;
et dimítte nobis débita nostra,
sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris;
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.
Give us this day our daily bread,
  and forgive us our trespasses,

and lead us not into temptation,
  but deliver us from evil.

Deus, per quem nobis et redémptio venit et præstátur adóptio, fílios dilectiónis tuæ benígnus inténde, ut in Christo credéntibus et vera tribuátur libértas et heréditas ætérna. Per Dóminum.
Since it is from you, God our Father,
  that redemption comes to us, your adopted children,
look with favour on the family you love,
  give true freedom to us and to all who believe in Christ,
  and bring us all alike to our eternal heritage.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

Dóminus nos benedícat, et ab omni malo deféndat, et ad vitam perdúcat ætérnam.
The Lord bless us, and keep us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.

AMEN
