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.

V. O God, hasten to mine aid.

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


Ant. The Virgin Mary * is taken up into the heavenly bridechamber, wherein the King of kings sitteth on His starry throne.




Psalm CXIX
A prayer against perfidious enemies

      When I was in trouble, I cried unto the Lord : and He heard me.
      O Lord, deliver my soul from wicked lips and from a deceitful tongue.
      What shall be given unto Thee, or what shall be added unto Thee, to a deceitful tongue?
      Sharp arrows of the mighty One, with destroying coals.
      Woe is me, that my sojourn is prolonged: I have dwelt with the inhabitants of Cedar: my soul hath long been a sojourner.
      With them that hated peace I was peaceable: when I spake unto them, they fought against me without cause.

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 CXX
God is the keeper of His servants

      I have lifted up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence my help shall come.
      My help is from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
      Let Him not suffer thy foot to be moved; neither let Him slumber that keepeth thee.
      Behold, He that keepeth Israel, shall neither slumber nor sleep.
      The Lord is thy keeper : the Lord is thy defence upon thy right hand.
      The sun shall not burn thee by day, nor the moon by night.
      The Lord keepeth thee from all evil: may the Lord keep thy soul.
      May the Lord keep thy coming in, and thy going out, from this time forth for evermore.

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 CXXI
Joy of the pilgrim entering Jerusalem

      I was glad at the things that were said unto me : We will go into the house of the Lord.
      Our feet were standing within thy courts, O Jerusalem.
      Jerusalem, which is built as a city, that is compact together.
      For thither the tribes went up, the tribes of the Lord : an ordinance for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
      For there are setup thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
      Pray ye for the things that are for the peace of Jerusalem; and plenty be to them that love Thee.
      Let peace be in Thy stronghold, and plenty in Thy towers.
      For my brethren and my neighbors' sake, I spake peace concerning thee.
      For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I have sought good things for thee.

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. The Virgin Mary is taken up into the heavenly bridechamber, wherein the King of kings sitteth on His starry throne.

      And so was I established in Sion, and in the holy city likewise I rested ; and my power was in Jerusalem.

R. Wherefore God hath blessed thee for ever.

Lord, have mercy on us.

Lord, have mercy on us.

Let us pray

O God, Who, by the fruitful virginity of blessed Mary, hast given to mankind the rewards of eternal salvation : grant, we beseech Thee, that we may experience her intercession for us, by whom we deserved to receive the Author of life, Our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, world without end.


R. Amen.
V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
