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. We run after the sweet smell* of Thine ointments: maidens have loved Thee exceedingly.




Psalm CXXII
A prayer in affliction

      Unto Thee have I lifted up mine eyes, O Thou that dwellest in the heavens.
      Behold, as the eyes of slaves are on the hands of their masters;
      As the eyes of a handmaid are on the hands of her mistress, so are our eyes unto the Lord our God, until He have mercy upon us.
      Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us; for we are greatly filled with contempt.
      Yea, our soul is greatly filled: we are the reproach of the rich, the contempt of the proud.

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 CXXIII
The Church gives glory to God for her deliverance from her enemies

      If the Lord had not been with us, now may Israel say: If the Lord had not been with us,
      When men rose up against us, peradventure they had swallowed us up alive;
      When their fury was enkindled against us, perchance the waters had swallowed us up.
      Our soul hath passed through a torrent: peradventure our soul would have passed through overwhelming waters.
      Blessed be the Lord, Who hath not given us up to be a prey unto their teeth.
      Our soul hath been delivered as a sparrow out of the snare of the fowlers.
      The snare is broken, and we are delivered.
      Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.

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 CXXIV
God protects the just who have
confidence in Him


      They that trust in the Lord shall be as Mount Sion: he shall not be moved for ever that dwelleth in Jerusalem.
      The hills stand round about her: even so is the Lord round about His people from this time forth for evermore.
      For the Lord will not leave the rod of sinners over the lot of the just: that the just may not stretch forth their hands unto wickedness.
      Do well, O Lord, unto those that are good, and unto them that are right of heart.
      But such as turn aside unto deceits, the Lord shall number with the workers of iniquity; but peace shall be 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. We run after the sweet smell of Thine ointments: maidens have loved Thee exceedingly.

      And I took root in an honorable people, and in the portion of my God, His inheritance: and my abode is in the full assembly of saints.

O most merciful God, grant succor unto our frailty ; that as we celebrate the memory of the holy Mother of God, so by the help of her intercession we may rise again from our transgressions. Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.
