Morning Prayer (Lauds)

If this is the first Hour that you are reciting today, you should precede it with the Invitatory Psalm.
INTRODUCTION
Deus, in adiutórium meum inténde.
  Dómine, ad adiuvándum me festína.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen. Allelúia.
INTRODUCTION
O God, come to our aid.
  O Lord, make haste to help 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. Alleluia.

Hymnus
Vox clara ecce íntonat,
obscúra quæque íncrepat:
procul fugéntur sómnia;
ab æthre Christus prómicat.
Mens iam resúrgat tórpida
quæ sorde exstat sáucia
sidus refúlget iam novum,
ut tollat omne nóxium.
E sursum Agnus míttitur
laxáre gratis débitum;
omnes pro indulgéntia
vocem demus cum lácrimis,
Secúndo ut cum fúlserit
mundúmque horror cínxerit,
non pro reátu púniat,
sed nos pius tunc prótegat.
Summo Parénti glória
Natóque sit victória,
et Flámini laus débita
per sæculórum sǽcula. Amen.
Hymn
Hark! a herald voice is calling
  Through the shadows of the night
‘Cast away the dreams of darkness
  Christ descends with heavenly light.’
Wakened by the solemn warning,
  Let the earthbound soul arise;
Christ, her sun, all sloth dispelling,
  Shines upon the morning skies.
Lo, the Lamb, so long expected,
  Comes with pardon down from heav’n;
Let us haste, with tears of sorrow,
  One and all to be forgiv’n;
So, when next he comes with glory,
  And his judgement-day draws near,
Faithful he may find his servants,
  Watching till their Lord appear.
Honour, glory, might, and blessing
  To the Father and the Son,
With the everlasting Spirit,
  While eternal ages run.

Ps 5:2-10,12-13
Oratio matutina ad implorandum auxilium

Verbo inhabitante, æternaliter exsultabunt qui eum intra se receperunt.

Ad te orábo, Dómine, mane exáudies vocem meam.
2Verba mea áuribus pércipe, Dómine;*
  intéllege gémitum meum.
3Inténde voci clamóris mei,*
  rex meus et Deus meus.
4Quóniam ad te orábo, Dómine,†
  mane exáudies vocem meam;*
  mane astábo tibi et exspectábo.
5Quóniam non Deus volens iniquitátem tu es;†
  neque habitábit iuxta te malígnus,*
  6neque permanébunt iniústi ante óculos tuos.
7Odísti omnes, qui operántur iniquitátem,†
  perdes omnes, qui loquúntur mendácium;*
  virum sánguinum et dolósum abominábitur Dóminus.
8Ego autem in multitúdine misericórdiæ tuæ†
  introíbo in domum tuam;*
  adorábo ad templum sanctum tuum in timóre tuo.
9Dómine, deduc me in iustítia tua propter inimícos meos,*
  dírige in conspéctu meo viam tuam.
10Quóniam non est in ore eórum véritas,*
  cor eórum fóvea;
sepúlcrum patens est guttur eórum,*
  mólliunt linguas suas.
12Et omnes, qui sperant in te, læténtur,*
  in ætérnum exsúltent.
Obumbrábis eis, et gloriabúntur in te,*
  qui díligunt nomen tuum;
13quóniam tu benedíces iusto, Dómine,*
  quasi scuto, bona voluntáte coronábis eum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Ad te orábo, Dómine, mane exáudies vocem meam.

Psalm 5
A morning prayer for help

It is you whom I invoke, O Lord. In the morning you hear me.
Let my words come to your ears, O Lord:
  hear my sighs.
Listen to the voice of my crying,
  my King and my God.
As I make my prayer to you,
  Lord, listen to my voice in the morning;
  in the morning I will stand before you and await you.
You are not a God who loves evil.
  The wicked cannot stay near you,
  the unjust cannot remain in your presence.
You hate all who do evil –
  you destroy all who speak falsehood –
  the Lord abominates the bloody and deceitful man.
But in the abundance of your mercy you will admit me to your house:
  I will worship you in your holy temple, with fear and reverence.
Lord, guide me in your justice, protect me from my enemies:
  let me see the path I must follow.
For there is no truth in their mouth – their heart is a bottomless pit –
  their throat is a wide open grave – their tongue seduces.
Punish them, Lord,
  and let their own plans destroy them.
On account of their crimes, thrust them from your presence;
  for they are rebels against you.
Let all who hope in you rejoice, triumph for ever.
  You will shelter them and they will glory in you.
For you bless the just, O Lord,
  and your good will surrounds them like a shield.
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.
It is you whom I invoke, O Lord. In the morning you hear me.

  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Adoráte Dóminum in aula sancta eius.

Psalm 28 (29)
Praise the word of the Lord

Adore the Lord in his holy court.
Give to the Lord, all his children,
  his glory and power,
  give to the Lord the glory of his name.
Worship the Lord in holy splendour.
The voice of the Lord is heard over the waters:
  the God of majesty thunders,
  God above all the waters.
The voice of the Lord in his power,
  the voice of the Lord in his greatness.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars,
  the Lord breaks down the cedars of Lebanon.
The Lord makes Lebanon leap like a calf,
  Sirion like a wild ox.
The voice of the Lord cuts flames in two;
  the voice of the Lord beats on the desert,
  the Lord stuns the desert of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord puts the deer to flight,
  it empties the thickets;
  in his sanctuary, all praise his glory.
The Lord dwells above the raging flood,
  he is enthroned as king for ever.
The Lord will give strength to his people,
  the Lord will bless his people with 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.
Adore the Lord in his holy court.

De Messia eiusque præcursore

Leva, Ierúsalem, óculos et vide poténtiam Regis: ecce Salvátor venit sólvere te a vínculo.
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,

  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*

Leva, Ierúsalem, óculos et vide poténtiam Regis: ecce Salvátor venit sólvere te a vínculo.
CanticleBenedictus

The Messiah and his forerunner

Lift up your eyes, Jerusalem, and see the power of the king. Behold, the Saviour comes. He will free you from your bonds.
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.
Lift up your eyes, Jerusalem, and see the power of the king. Behold, the Saviour comes. He will free you from your bonds.

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

Fac nos, quǽsumus, Dómine Deus noster, advéntum Christi Fílii tui sollícitos exspectáre, ut, dum vénerit pulsans, oratiónibus vigilántes et in suis invéniat láudibus exsultántes.

Give us the grace, Lord, to be ever on the watch for Christ your Son.
When he comes and knocks at our door,
  let him find us alert in prayer,
  joyfully proclaiming his glory.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

Dóminus nos benedícat, et ab omni malo deféndat, et ad vitam perdúcat ætérnam.
