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. And she is taken up.




Psalm LIII
A prayer for help in distress

      Save me, O God, by Thy name; and judge me in Thy strength.
      Hear my prayer, O God: give ear unto the words of my mouth.
      For strangers have risen up against me, and the mighty have sought after my soul: and they have not set God before their eyes.
      For behold, God is my helper, and the Lord is the protector of my soul.
      Turn back evil upon mine enemies: and destroy them in Thy truth.
      I will freely sacrifice unto Thee, and will give thanks to Thy name, O Lord, for it is good.
      For Thou has delivered me out of all my trouble; and mine eye hath looked down upon mine enemies.


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 LXXXIV
Prayer to obtain the complete
restoration of Israel


      Thou hast blessed Thy land, O Lord: Thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.
      Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of Thy people: Thou hast covered all their sins.
      Thou hast softened all Thine anger : Thou hast turned away from the wrath of Thine indignation.
      Convert us, O God, our Saviour; and turn away Thine anger from us.
      Wilt Thou be angry with us for ever: or wilt Thou stretch out Thy wrath from generation to generation?
      Thou wilt turn again, O God, and quicken us; and Thy people shall rejoice in Thee.
      Show us Thy mercy, O Lord ; and grant us Thy salvation.
      I will hearken what the Lord shall say within me; for He will speak peace unto His people.
      And unto His saints; and unto them that are converted in heart.
      Surely His salvation is unto them that fear Him : that glory may dwell in our land.
      Mercy and truth have met together: justice and peace have kissed.
      Truth is sprung out of the earth; and justice hath looked down from heaven.
      For the Lord shall give goodness; and our earth shall yield her fruit.
      Justice shall walk before Him; and shall set His steps in the right way.

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 CXVI
Exhortation to praise God

      O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise Him, all ye peoples.
      For His mercy is confirmed upon us; and the truth of the Lord remaineth for ever.

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. Mary is taken up into heaven. The angels rejoice and praising bless the Lord.

      O God, Who didst vouchsafe to choose the virgin palace of blessed Mary for Thy dwelling; grant, we beseech Thee, that we, who are shielded by her protection, may by Thy grace join with gladness in her commemoration. Who livest and reignest with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.
