Ave Maria, etc, in silence.

Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

The Ave Maria is always said at the beginning of each of the Hours of the Blessed Virgin Mary.


V. O God, hasten to mine aid.
R. O Lord, make haste to help me.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Alleluia.

Hymn

Remember, O Creator Lord,
That in the Virgin's sacred womb
Thou wast conceived, and of her flesh
Didst our mortality assume.

Mother of grace! O Mary blest!
To thee, sweet fount of life, we fly;
Shield us through life, and take us hence,
To thy dear bosom, when we die.

O Jesu! born of Virgin bright,
Immortal glory be to Thee,
Praise to the Father infinite,
And Holy Ghost eternally. Amen.


Ant. Thou art fair * and comely, O daughter of Jerusalem: terrible as an army set in array.




Psalm CXXV
The people of God rejoice at their delivery
from captivity


      When the Lord turned again the captivity of Sion, we became like men consoled.
      Then was our mouth filled with gladness, and our tongue with joy.
      Then shall they say among the Gentiles: The Lord hath done great things for them.
      The Lord hath done great, things for us: we are become joyful.
      Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as a river in the south.
      They that sow in tears, shall reap in joy.
      They went forth on their way and wept, scattering their seed.
      But returning they shall come with joy, bringing their sheaves with them.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.



Psalm CXXVI
Man can do nothing without God

      Unless the Lord build a house, they labor in vain that build it.
      Unless the Lord keep the city, he watcheth in vain that keepeth it.
      In vain do ye rise before the light: rise not till ye have rested, O ye that eat the bread of sorrow.
      When He giveth sleep to His beloved: lo, children are an heritage from the Lord, and the fruit of the womb a reward.
      Like as arrows in the hand of the mighty One, so are the children of those who have been cast out.
      Blessed is the man whose desire is satisfied with them: he shall not be confounded when he speaketh with his enemies in the gate.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.



Psalm CXXVII
The happiness of the just

      Blessed are all they that fear the Lord, that walk in His ways.
      For thou shalt eat the labors of thy hands: blessed art thou, and it shall be well with thee.
      Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine on the walls of thy house.
      Thy children as olive plants, round about thy table.
      Behold, thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.
      May the Lord bless thee out of Sion, and mayest thou see the good things of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
      Mayest thou see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.



Ant. Thou art fair and comely, O daughter of Jerusalem: terrible as an army set in array.




Little Chapter, Ecclus. xxiv

      In the ways, like cinnamon and aromatic balm, I gave forth a sweet fragrance: like the choicest myrrh, I yielded a sweet smell.

R. Thanks be to God.
V. After childbirth, O Virgin, thou didst remain inviolate.
R. Plead for us, O Mother of God.

Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ, have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us.

V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.

Let us pray

Forgive, O Lord, we beseech Thee, the sins of Thy servants; so that we who cannot become pleasing to Thee from our own actions, may be saved by the pleading of the Mother of Thy Son, Our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.


R. Amen.
V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.
