Hymnus
Dum tuas festo, pater o colénde,
cántico laudes habet hæc coróna,
vocis ac mentis, Ióachim, benígne
áccipe munus.
Longa te regum séries avórum
Abrahæ prolem tulit atque David;
clárior mundi dómina corúscas
prole María.
Sic tuum germen benedícta ab Anna
éditum, patrum repetíta vota
implet, et mæsto próperat reférre
gáudia mundo.
Laus tibi, Prolis Pater increátæ;
laus tibi, summi Súboles Paréntis;
summa laus, compar, tibi sit per omne,
Spíritus, ævum. Amen.
Hymn
For all the saints who from their labours rest,
Who thee by faith before the world confessed,
Thy name, O Jesu, be for ever blest.
  Alleluia, Alleluia!
Thou wast their rock, their fortress and their might;
Thou, Lord, their captain in the well-fought fight;
Thou in the darkness drear their one true Light.
  Alleluia, Alleluia!
O may thy soldiers, faithful, true and bold,
Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old,
And win, with them, the victor’s crown of gold.
  Alleluia, Alleluia!
O blest communion! fellowship divine!
We feebly struggle, they in glory shine;
Yet all are one in thee, for all are thine.
  Alleluia, Alleluia!

Ps 10:1-7
Dominus fiducia iusti

Beati, qui esuriunt et sitiunt iustitiam, quoniam ipsi saturabuntur” (Mt 5, 6).

Oculi Dómini in páuperem respíciunt.
1In Dómino confído, quómodo dícitis ánimæ meæ:*
  «Tránsmigra in montem sicut passer?
2Quóniam ecce peccatóres intendérunt arcum,†
  paravérunt sagíttas suas super nervum,*
  ut sagíttent in obscúro rectos corde.
3Quando fundaménta evertúntur,*
  iustus quid fáciat?».
4Dóminus in templo sancto suo,*
  Dóminus, in cælo sedes eius.
Oculi eius in páuperem respíciunt,*
  pálpebræ eius intérrogant fílios hóminum.
5Dóminus intérrogat iustum et ímpium;*
  qui autem díligit iniquitátem, odit ánima eius.
6Pluet super peccatóres carbónes;*
  ignis et sulphur et spíritus procellárum pars cálicis eórum.
7Quóniam iustus Dóminus et iustítias diléxit,*
  recti vidébunt vultum eius.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Oculi Dómini in páuperem respíciunt.

Psalm 10 (11)
The Lord, support of the just

The Lord cares for the weak and oppressed.
I trust in the Lord, so why do you say to me:
  “Fly up to the mountain like a sparrow”?
“For the wicked have drawn their bows,
  fitted the arrow to the string,
  to shoot in darkness at the upright of heart.
When the foundations are being overthrown,
  what are the just to do?”
The Lord is in his holy temple;
  the Lord’s throne is in heaven.
His eyes look down on the poor,
  he examines the children of men.
The Lord scrutinises the just and the unjust,
  and his heart hates those who do evil.
He rains down coals upon the wicked,
  fire and brimstone and a scorching wind:
  this is what he gives them to drink.
For the Lord is just and loves just deeds,
  and the upright shall see his face.
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 cares for the weak and oppressed.

Ps 14:1-5
Quis dignus coram Domino?

Accessistis ad Sion montem et civitatem Dei viventis” (Hebr 12, 22).

Beáti mundo corde, quóniam ipsi Deum vidébunt.
1Dómine, quis habitábit in tabernáculo tuo?*
  Quis requiéscet in monte sancto tuo?
2Qui ingréditur sine mácula et operátur iustítiam,*
  qui lóquitur veritátem in corde suo,
3qui non egit dolum in lingua sua,†
  nec fecit próximo suo malum*
  et oppróbrium non íntulit próximo suo.
4Ad níhilum reputátus est in conspéctu eius malígnus,*
  timéntes autem Dóminum gloríficat.
Qui iurávit in detriméntum suum et non mutat,†
  5qui pecúniam suam non dedit ad usúram*
  et múnera super innocéntem non accépit.
Qui facit hæc,*
  non movébitur in ætérnum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Beáti mundo corde, quóniam ipsi Deum vidébunt.

Psalm 14 (15)
Who is worthy to face the Lord?

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Lord, who will live in your tent?
  Who will dwell on your holy mountain?
Whoever comes there without stain,
  acts rightly, speaks truth in his heart.
Whoever does not speak deceitfully,
  or do harm to his neighbour, or slander him.
Whoever despises the evil-doer,
  but reveres those who fear the Lord.
Whoever swears and keeps his word, come what may
 – lends his money without usury –
  takes no bribe to condemn the innocent.
Whoever lives like this
  will stand firm 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.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

CanticleEphesians 1

God the Saviour

God chose us in his Son and made us his adopted sons.
Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
  who has blessed us, in Christ,
  with every spiritual blessing in heaven.
In love, he chose us before the creation of the world,
  to be holy and spotless in his sight.
He predestined us to be his adopted children through Jesus Christ,
  simply because it pleased him to do so.
This he did for the praise of the glory of his grace,
  of his free gift to us in his Beloved,
in whose blood we have gained redemption,
  and the forgiveness of our sins.
This he did according to the riches of his grace,
  which he gave us in abundance,
with all wisdom and discernment,
  revealing to us the mysteries of his will,
  because it pleased him to do so.
In this action he has planned, in the fulfilment of time,
  to bring all things together in Christ,
  from the heavens and from 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.
God chose us in his Son and made us his adopted sons.

My soul rejoices in the Lord

The noble stem of Jesse put forth a branch from which there blossomed a flower full of beauty and rich in scent.
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.
