Psalm 50 [1]
50:1 Have mercy on me, O God, * according to thy great mercy.
50:2 And according to the multitude of thy tender mercies * blot out my iniquity.
50:3 Wash me yet more from my iniquity, * and cleanse me from my sin.
50:4 For I know my iniquity, * and my sin is always before me.
50:5 To thee only have I sinned, and have done evil before thee: * that thou mayst be justified in thy words, and mayst overcome when thou art judged.
50:6 For behold I was conceived in iniquities; * and in sins did my mother conceive me.
50:7 For behold thou hast loved truth: * the uncertain and hidden things of thy wisdom thou hast made manifest to me.
50:8 Thou shalt sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be cleansed: * thou shalt wash me, and I shall be made whiter than snow.
50:9 To my hearing thou shalt give joy and gladness: * and the bones that have been humbled shall rejoice.
50:10 Turn away thy face from my sins, * and blot out all my iniquities.
50:11 Create a clean heart in me, O God: * and renew a right spirit within my bowels.

50:15 Deliver me from blood, O God, thou God of my salvation: * and my tongue shall extol thy justice.
50:16 O Lord, thou wilt open my lips: * and my mouth shall declare thy praise.
50:17 For if thou hadst desired sacrifice, I would indeed have given it: * with burnt offerings thou wilt not be delighted.
50:18 A sacrifice to God is an afflicted spirit: * a contrite and humbled heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
50:19 Deal favourably, O Lord, in thy good will with Sion; * that the walls of Jerusalem may be built up.

42:3 Emítte lucem tuam et veritátem tuam: * ipsa me deduxérunt, et adduxérunt in montem sanctum tuum, et in tabernácula tua.
42:4 Et introíbo ad altáre Dei: * ad Deum, qui lætíficat iuventútem meam.

Psalm 42 [2]
42:1 Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation that is not holy: * deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.
42:2 For thou art God my strength: * why hast thou cast me off? and why do I go sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?
42:3 Send forth thy light and thy truth: * they have conducted me, and brought me unto thy holy hill, and into thy tabernacles.
42:4 And I will go in to the altar of God: * to God who giveth joy to my youth.

Canticum Ezechiae [4]
(Canticum Ezechiae * Isa 38:10-24)
38:10 Ego dixi: In dimídio diérum meórum * vadam ad portas ínferi.
38:11 Quæsívi resíduum annórum meórum. * Dixi: Non vidébo Dóminum Deum in terra vivéntium.
38:12 Non aspíciam hóminem ultra, * et habitatórem quiétis.
38:13 Generátio mea abláta est, et convolúta est a me, * quasi tabernáculum pastórum.
38:14 Præcísa est velut a texénte, vita mea: dum adhuc ordírer, succídit me: * de mane usque ad vésperam fínies me.
38:15 Sperábam usque ad mane, * quasi leo sic contrívit ómnia ossa mea:
38:16 De mane usque ad vésperam fínies me: * sicut pullus hirúndinis sic clamábo, meditábor ut colúmba:
38:17 Attenuáti sunt óculi mei, * suspiciéntes in excélsum.
38:18 Dómine, vim pátior, respónde pro me. * Quid dicam, aut quid respondébit mihi, cum ipse fécerit?
38:19 Recogitábo tibi omnes annos meos * in amaritúdine ánimæ meæ.
38:20 Dómine, si sic vívitur, et in tálibus vita spíritus mei, corrípies me, et vivificábis me. * Ecce, in pace amaritúdo mea amaríssima:
38:21 Tu autem eruísti ánimam meam ut non períret: * proiecísti post tergum tuum ómnia peccáta mea.
38:22 Quia non inférnus confitébitur tibi, neque mors laudábit te: * non exspectábunt qui descéndunt in lacum, veritátem tuam.
38:23 Vivens vivens ipse confitébitur tibi, sicut et ego hódie: * pater fíliis notam fáciet veritátem tuam.
38:24 Domine, salvum me fac * et psalmos nostros cantábimus cunctis diébus vitae nostrae in domo Dómini.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.

Canticle of Ezechias [4]
(Canticle of Ezechias * Isa 38:10-23)
38:10 I said: In the midst of my days * I shall go to the gates of hell:
38:11 I sought for the residue of my years. * I said: I shall not see the Lord God in the land of the living.
38:12 I shall behold man no more, * nor the inhabitant of rest.
38:13 My generation is at an end, and it is rolled away from me, * as a shepherd’s tent.
38:14 My life is cut off, as by a weaver: whilst I was yet but beginning, he cut me off: * from morning even to night thou wilt make an end of me.
38:15 I hoped till morning, * as a lion so hath he broken all my bones:
38:16 From morning even to night thou wilt make an end of me. * I will cry like a young swallow, I will meditate like a dove:
38:17 My eyes are weakened * looking upward:
38:18 Lord, I suffer violence, answer thou for me. * What shall I say, or what shall he answer for me, whereas he himself hath done it?
38:19 I will recount to thee all my years * in the bitterness of my soul.
38:20 O Lord, if man’s life be such, and the life of my spirit be in such things as these, thou shalt correct me, and make me to live. * Behold in peace is my bitterness most bitter:
38:21 But thou hast delivered my soul that it should not perish, * thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.
38:22 For hell shall not confess to thee, neither shall death praise thee: * nor shall they that go down into the pit, look for thy truth.
38:23 The living, the living, he shall give praise to thee, as I do this day: * the father shall make thy truth known to the children.
38:24 O Lord, save me, and we will sing our psalms all the days of our life * in the house of the Lord.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Ant. Thou shalt correct me, O Lord, * and make me to live.

134:4 Quóniam Iacob elégit sibi Dóminus, * Israël in possessiónem sibi.
134:5 Quia ego cognóvi quod magnus est Dóminus, * et Deus noster præ ómnibus diis.
134:6 Omnia quæcúmque vóluit, Dóminus fecit in cælo, et in terra, * in mari, et in ómnibus abýssis.
134:7 Edúcens nubes ab extrémo terræ: * fúlgura in plúviam fecit.
134:8 Qui prodúcit ventos de thesáuris suis: * qui percússit primogénita Ægýpti ab hómine usque ad pecus.
134:9 Et misit signa, et prodígia in médio tui, Ægýpte: * in Pharaónem, et in omnes servos eius.
134:10 Qui percússit gentes multas: * et occídit reges fortes:
134:11 Sehon, regem Amorrhæórum, et Og, regem Basan, * et ómnia regna Chánaan.
134:12 Et dedit terram eórum hereditátem, * hereditátem Israël, pópulo suo.
134:13 Dómine, nomen tuum in ætérnum: * Dómine, memoriále tuum in generatiónem et generatiónem.
134:14 Quia iudicábit Dóminus pópulum suum: * et in servis suis deprecábitur.
134:15 Simulácra géntium argéntum, et aurum, * ópera mánuum hóminum.
134:16 Os habent, et non loquéntur: * óculos habent, et non vidébunt.
134:17 Aures habent, et non áudient: * neque enim est spíritus in ore ipsórum.
134:18 Símiles illis fiant qui fáciunt ea: * et omnes qui confídunt in eis.
134:19 Domus Israël, benedícite Dómino: * domus Aaron, benedícite Dómino.

134:1 Praise ye the name of the Lord: * O you his servants, praise the Lord:
134:2 You that stand in the house of the Lord, * in the courts of the house of our God.
134:3 Praise ye the Lord, for the Lord is good: * sing ye to his name, for it is sweet.
134:4 For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself: * Israel for his own possession.
134:5 For I have known that the Lord is great, * and our God is above all gods.
134:6 Whatsoever the Lord pleased he hath done, in heaven, in earth, * in the sea, and in all the deeps.
134:7 He bringeth up clouds from the end of the earth: * he hath made lightnings for the rain.
134:8 He bringeth forth winds out of his stores: * He slew the firstborn of Egypt from man even unto beast.
134:9 He sent forth signs and wonders in the midst of thee, O Egypt: * upon Pharao, and upon all his servants.
134:10 He smote many nations, * and slew mighty kings:
134:11 Sehon king of the Amorrhites, and Og king of Basan, * and all the kingdoms of Chanaan.
134:12 And gave their land for an inheritance, * for an inheritance to his people Israel.
134:13 Thy name, O Lord, is for ever: * thy memorial, O Lord, unto all generations.
134:14 For the Lord will judge his people, * and will be entreated in favour of his servants.
134:15 The idols of the Gentiles are silver and gold, * the works of men’s hands.
134:16 They have a mouth, but they speak not: * they have eyes, but they see not.
134:17 They have ears, but they hear not: * neither is there any breath in their mouths.
134:18 Let them that make them be like to them: * and every one that trusteth in them.
134:19 Bless the Lord, O house of Israel: * bless the Lord, O house of Aaron.

Capitulum Hymnus Versus {ex Psalterio secundum diem}
Ier 11:19
Veníte, mittamus lignum in panem eius, et eradamus eum de terra vivéntium, et nomen eius non memorétur ámplius.
R. Deo grátias.

Hymnus
Lustra sex qui iam perégit,
Tempus implens córporis:
Sponte líbera Redémptor
Passióni déditus:
Agnus in Crucis levátur
Immolándus stípite.

Felle potus ecce languet,
Spina, clavi, láncea,
Mite corpus perforárunt,
Unda manat, et cruor:
Terra, pontus, astra, mundus,
Quo lavántur flúmine.

Crux fidélis, inter omnes
Arbor una nóbilis:
Silva talem nulla profert
Fronde, flore, gérmine:
Dulce ferrum, dulce lignum
Dulce pondus sústinent.

Flecte ramos, arbor alta,
Tensa laxa víscera:
Et rigor lentéscat ille,
Quem dedit natívitas:
Et supérni membra Régis
Tende miti stípite.

Sola digna tu fuísti
Ferre mundi víctimam;
Atque portum præparáre
Arca mundo náufrago;
Quam sacer cruor perúnxit,
Fusus Agni córpore.

Sempitérna sit beátæ
Trinitáti glória:
Æqua Patri, Filióque,
Par decus Paráclito:
Uníus, Triníque nomen
Laudet univérsitas.
Amen.

V. Éripe me de inimícis meis, Deus meus.
R. Et ab insurgéntibus in me líbera me.
Chapter Hymn Verse {from the Psalter for the day of the week}
Jer 11:19
Come, let us put wood on his bread, and cut him off from the land of the living, and let his name be remembered no more.
R. Thanks be to God.

Hymn
Thirty years among us dwelling,
His appointed time fulfilled,
Born for this, he meets his passion,
For that this he freely willed:
On the cross the Lamb is lifted,
Where his life-blood shall be spilled.

He endured the nails, the spitting,
Vinegar, and spear, and reed;
From that holy body broken
Blood and water forth proceed:
Earth, and stars, and sky, and ocean,
By that flood from stain are free.

Faithful cross! above all other,
One and only noble tree!
None in foliage, none in blossom,
None in fruit thy peers may be;
Sweetest wood and sweetest iron!
Sweetest weight is hung on thee.

Bend thy boughs, O tree of glory!
Thy relaxing sinews bend;
For awhile the ancient rigour,
That thy birth bestowed, suspend;
And the King of heavenly beauty
On thy bosom gently tend!

Thou alone wast counted worthy
This world's ransom to uphold;
For a shipwrecked race preparing
Harbour, like the ark of old;
With the sacred blood anointed
From the smitten Lamb that rolled.

To the Trinity be glory
Everlasting, as is meet;
Equal to the Father, equal
To the Son, and Paraclete:
Trinal Unity, whose praises
All created things repeat.
Amen.

V. Deliver me from my enemies, O my God.
R. And defend me from them that rise up against me.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R. Amen.

O Almighty and everlasting God, Who didst fill Thy blessed servant John with heavenly teaching, and wondrous strength of spirit to maintain the honouring of holy images. Grant unto us at his prayers and after his example to take pattern by their holy lives whose images we honour, and ever to feel the power of their help.
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R. Amen.
