Start
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation: But deliver us from evil. Amen.
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.
I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried: he descended into hell; the third day he arose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven; sitteth at the right hand of God the Father almighty: from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins. The resurrection of the body. And life everlasting. Amen.

Ant. Christ appeared to us, * O come, let us worship Him.
Ant. Christ appeared to us, * O come, let us worship Him.
Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our saviour. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.
Ant. Christ appeared to us, * O come, let us worship Him.
For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. For the Lord will not cast off his people: for in his hand are all the ends of the earth, and the heights of the mountains are his.
Ant. O come, let us worship Him.
For the sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. (genuflect) Come let us adore and fall down: and weep before the Lord that made us: For he is the Lord our God: and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
Ant. Christ appeared to us, * O come, let us worship Him.
Today if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts: As in the provocation, according to the day of temptation in the wilderness: where your fathers tempted me, they proved me, and saw my works.
Ant. O come, let us worship Him.
Forty years long was I offended with that generation, and I said: These always err in heart. And these men have not known my ways: so I swore in my wrath that they shall not enter into my rest.
Ant. Christ appeared to us, * O come, let us worship Him.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Crudélis Heródes, Deum
Regem veníre quid times?
Non éripit mortália,
Qui regna dat cæléstia.

Ibant magi, quam víderant,
Stellam sequéntes prǽviam:
Lumen requírunt lúmine:
Deum faténtur múnere.

Lavácra puri gúrgitis
Cæléstis Agnus áttigit:
Peccáta, quæ non détulit,
Nos abluéndo sústulit.

Novum genus poténtiæ:
Aquæ rubéscunt hýdriæ,
Vinúmque jussa fúndere,
Mutávit unda oríginem.

Jesu, tibi sit glória,
Qui apparuisti géntibus,
Cum Patre, et almo Spíritu,
In sempitérna sǽcula.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Common or Feast}
Why, impious Herod, vainly fear
That Christ the Saviour cometh here?
He takes no earthly realms away
Who gives the crown that lasts for aye.

To greet His birth the Wise Men went,
Led by the star before them sent;
Called on by light, towards light they pressed,
And by their gifts their God confessed.

In holy Jordan's purest wave
The heavenly Lamb vouchsafed to lave;
That He, to whom was sin unknown,
Might cleanse His people from their own.

New miracle of power divine!
The water reddens into wine:
He spake the word: and poured the wave
In other streams than nature gave.

All glory, Lord, to thee we pay
For thine Epiphany to-day:
All glory, as is ever meet,
To Father and to Paraclete.
Amen.

Non possum cohibére lætítiæ voluptátem, sed mente extóllor, et afficior: et propriæ pusillitátis oblítus, offícium magni Joánnis, immo potius famulátum subire contendo, ac gestio: et licet non sim præcursor, de erémo tamen vénio. Christus ergo illuminátur, immo potius fulgóre suo nos illúminat: Christus baptizátur, simul et nos descendámus, ut cum ipso páriter ascendámus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Reading 4
From the Sermons of St. Gregory of Nazianzus, Patriarch of Constantinople.
Discourse on the Epiphany, 2
I am not able to restrain the outbursts of my happiness. I feel changed and elated. I forget my own meanness while I undertake and try to discharge the office of the great John. It is true that I am not the Forerunner, but at least I come from the desert. Christ is enlightened, or rather, He enlighteneth us with His own light. Christ is baptized; let us go down with Him into the water, that we may come up with Him.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Shine, shine, O Jerusalem, for thy light is come;
* And the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
V. And the Gentiles shall walk in thy light, and kings in the brightness of thy rising.
R. And the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.

Joánnes baptízat, et accédit Jesus, sanctíficans quidem et ipsum, qui baptízat, præcipue tamen ut et véterem Adam sepéliat in aquis, et ante ómnia, ut per hæc sanctificéntur aquæ Jordánis: ut sicut erat spíritus et caro, ita et his, qui baptizándi erant, in spíritu et aqua sanctificatiónis succéssio traderétur. Non súscipit Baptísta, conténdit Jesus. Ego, inquit, opus habeo a te baptizári. Lucérna dicit ad Solem, et vox lóquitur ad Verbum.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

Reading 5
John is baptizing. Jesus cometh. He cometh that He may make holy him who baptizeth Him; He cometh to bury the old Adam in the waters; He cometh to hallow the blessed flood of Jordan. He Who is Flesh and Spirit cometh to open for all that should ever be baptized that power of generation whereby new peoples are constantly begotten of water and the Holy Ghost. The Baptist will not receive Him. Jesus striveth with him. I, saith John, have need to be baptized of thee. Thus speaketh the candle to the Sun, the voice to the Word.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. All they from Saba shall come, they shall bring gold and incense, and they shall show forth the praises of the Lord.

Spíritus Sanctus testimónium pérhibet: simília namque sibi ipsa concúrrunt. De cælo testimónium defértur: inde enim erat ille, cui testimónium perhibétur.

Jesus came up out of the water, having, in a manner, washed the whole world, and brought it up with Him. And He saw the heavens opened not divided, even those heavens which Adam had once shut upon himself and us his descendants, when the cherub's fiery sword barred the gates of Paradise. And the Holy Spirit bare witness, witness unto Him Who is of One Substance with Himself. And witness was given from Heaven, unto Him that came down from heaven.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. There came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, asking and saying: Where is He That is born King of the Jews? for we have seen His star in the east;

R. And are come to worship the Lord.

Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidiánum da nobis hódie: et dimítte nobis débita nostra, sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris:

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Joánnem
Joannes 1:29-34
In illo témpore: Vidit Joánnes Jesum veniéntem ad se, et ait: Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollit peccátum mundi. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Augustíni Epíscopi
Tract. 6. in Joann., ante med.
Antequam veníret Dóminus ut baptizarétur a Joánne in Jordáne, nóverat eum illis vócibus, ubi ait: Tu ad me venis baptizári? ego a te débeo baptizári. Sed ecce Dóminum nóverat, nóverat Fílium Dei. Unde probámus quod jam nóverat, quia ipse baptizáret in Spíritu Sancto? Antequam veníret ad flúvium, cum multi ad Joánnem cúrrerent baptizári, ait illis: Ego quidem baptízo vos in aqua: qui autem post me venit, major me est: cujus non sum dignus corrígiam calceaménti sólvere: ipse vos baptizábit in Spíritu Sancto, et igni. Jam et hoc nóverat.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Stella, quam víderant Magi in Oriénte, antecedébat eos, donec venírent ad locum, ubi puer erat.
* Vidéntes autem eam, gavísi sunt gáudio magno.
V. Et intrántes domum, invenérunt púerum cum María matre ejus, et procidéntes adoravérunt eum.
R. Vidéntes autem eam, gavísi sunt gáudio magno.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Gospel's holy lection be our safety and protection. Amen.

From the Holy Gospel according to John
John 1:29-34
At that time, John saw Jesus coming to him, and he saith: Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who taketh away the sin of the world. And so on.

Homily by St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
6th Tract on John.
John knew Jesus even before He came to be baptized of him in Jordan, as we perceive by the words I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest Thou to me? Behold, how he knew that He was the Lord, how he knew that He was the Son of God! How do we prove that he knew that He it was Who should baptize with the Holy Ghost? Before the Lord came to the river, when many betook themselves to John to be baptized of him, the Baptist said I indeed baptize you with water but One Mightier than I cometh; the latchet of Whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire. (Luke iii. 16.) Behold, John knew this also.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The star which the wise men had seen in the East, went before them, till they came where the young Child was.
* And when they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
V. And when they were come into the house, they found the young Child with Mary His Mother, and fell down and worshipped Him.
R. And when they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Divínum auxílium máneat semper nobíscum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Quid ergo per colúmbam dídicit, ne mendax póstea inveniátur, (quod avértat a nobis Deus opinári) nisi quamdam proprietátem in Christo talem futúram, ut quamvis multi minístri baptizatúri essent, sive justi, sive injústi, non tribuerétur sánctitas baptísmi nisi illi, super quem descéndit colúmba, de quo dictum est: Hic est qui baptízat in Spíritu Sancto? Petrus baptízet, hic est qui baptízat: Paulus baptízet, hic est qui baptízat: Judas baptízet, hic est qui baptízat. Nam si pro diversitáte meritórum baptísma sanctum est: quia divérsa sunt mérita, divérsa erunt baptísmata: et tanto quisque áliquid mélius putátur accípere, quanto a melióre vidétur accepísse.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Vidéntes stellam Magi, gavísi sunt gáudio magno:
* Et intrántes domum invenérunt púerum cum María matre ejus, et procidéntes adoravérunt eum: * Et apértis thesáuris suis obtulérunt ei múnera, aurum, thus, et mýrrham.
V. Stella, quam víderant Magi in Oriénte, antecedébat eos, usque dum véniens staret supra ubi erat puer.
R. Et intrántes domum invenérunt púerum cum María matre ejus, et procidéntes adoravérunt eum:
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et apértis thesáuris suis obtulérunt ei múnera, aurum, thus, et mýrrham.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. God's most mighty strength alway be His people's staff and stay. Amen.

Reading 8
Yet John saith: I knew Him Now, how are we to explain this without calling John a liar? and God forbid that we should ever even think anything of the kind. Was it not that when the Dove descended on Christ, John then for the first time knew Him to have that peculiar attribute, that, whosoever should baptize with His Baptism, whether they were themselves just or unjust, the virtue of the Sacrament should proceed, not from them, but from Him on Whom abode the Dove; so that He is the real Baptizer in every Christian Baptism until the end of time, and it is in this sense that it is said of Him the Same is He Which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost Whether it be Peter, or Paul, or Judas, that performeth the ceremony, the real Baptizer and effectual Worker is Christ. For if the holiness of the baptism depended on the holiness of the particular officiator, no two baptisms would be exactly alike, and every one would be supposed to be more or less regenerated according as the minister who baptized him was more or less of a saint.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. When the wise men saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
* And when they were come into the house, they found the young Child with Mary His Mother, and fell down and worshipped Him; *
and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
V. The star which the wise men had seen in the East, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was.
R. And when they were come into the house, they found the young Child with Mary His Mother, and fell down and worshipped Him.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Ipsi sancti, (intellígite, fratres) boni pertinéntes ad colúmbam, pertinéntes ad sortem civitátis illíus Jerúsalem, ipsi boni in Ecclésia, de quibus dicit Apóstolus: Novit Dóminus qui sunt ejus; diversárum gratiárum sunt, non omnes pária mérita habent. Sunt alii aliis sanctióres, sunt álii áliis melióres. Quare ergo si unus ab illo, verbi grátia, justo, sancto baptizétur, álius ab álio inferióris mériti apud Deum, inferióris gradus, inferióris continéntiæ, inferióris vitæ; unum tamen et par et æquále est quod accepérunt, nisi quia hic est, qui baptízat?
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.


Te Deum
Te Deum laudámus: * te Dóminum confitémur.
Te ætérnum Patrem * omnis terra venerátur.
Tibi omnes Ángeli, * tibi Cæli, et univérsæ Potestátes:
Tibi Chérubim et Séraphim * incessábili voce proclámant:

(Fit reverentia) Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus * Dóminus Deus Sábaoth.

Pleni sunt cæli et terra * majestátis glóriæ tuæ.
Te gloriósus * Apostolórum chorus,
Te Prophetárum * laudábilis númerus,
Te Mártyrum candidátus * laudat exércitus.
Te per orbem terrárum * sancta confitétur Ecclésia,
Patrem * imménsæ majestátis;
Venerándum tuum verum * et únicum Fílium;
Sanctum quoque * Paráclitum Spíritum.
Tu Rex glóriæ, * Christe.
Tu Patris * sempitérnus es Fílius.

Fit reverentia
Tu, ad liberándum susceptúrus hóminem: * non horruísti Vírginis uterum.

Tu, devícto mortis acúleo, * aperuísti credéntibus regna cælórum.
Tu ad déxteram Dei sedes, * in glória Patris.
Judex créderis * esse ventúrus.

Sequens versus dicitur flexis genibus
Te ergo quǽsumus, tuis fámulis súbveni, * quos pretióso sánguine redemísti.

Ætérna fac cum Sanctis tuis * in glória numerári.
Salvum fac pópulum tuum, Dómine, * et bénedic hereditáti tuæ.
Et rege eos, * et extólle illos usque in ætérnum.
Per síngulos dies * benedícimus te.

Fit reverentia, secundum consuetudinem
Et laudámus nomen tuum in sǽculum, * et in sǽculum sǽculi.

Dignáre, Dómine, die isto * sine peccáto nos custodíre.
Miserére nostri, Dómine, * miserére nostri.
Fiat misericórdia tua, Dómine, super nos, * quemádmodum sperávimus in te.
In te, Dómine, sperávi: * non confúndar in ætérnum.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 9
Now, my brethren, understand me. The saints themselves, those good men who appertain to the Dove, those good men whose portion is in Jerusalem, those good men in the Church, of whom the Apostle saith: the Lord knoweth them that are His, 2 Tim. ii. 19, these good men differ one from another by diversities of graces, and are not all of the same worthiness. Some are holier than others, and some are better than others. Supposing then for the sake of argument that A is baptized by B, a righteous saint, and C is baptized by D who is less worthy in the sight of God, who hath attained only a lower degree in godliness, who is not so chaste, and whose life is not so good as B's, yet A and C receive just the same thing. And how is this, unless it be that it is Christ Himself Who is the effectual Baptizer?
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.


Te Deum
We praise thee, O God, * we acknowledge thee to be the Lord.
All the earth doth worship thee, * the Father everlasting.
To thee all Angels cry aloud, * the Heavens, and all the Powers therein.
To thee Cherubim and Seraphim * continually do cry.

(bow head) Holy, Holy, Holy * Lord God of Sabaoth;

Heaven and earth are full * of the Majesty of thy glory.
The glorious company of the Apostles * praise thee.
The goodly fellowship of the Prophets * praise thee.
The noble army of Martyrs * praise thee.
The holy Church throughout all the world * doth acknowledge thee;
The Father, * of an infinite Majesty.
Thine honourable, true, * and only Son;
Also the Holy Ghost, * the Comforter.
Thou art the King of Glory, * O Christ.
Thou art the everlasting * Son of the Father.

During the following verse all make a profound bow:
When thou tookest upon thee to deliver man, * thou didst not abhor the Virgin's womb.

When thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death, * thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers.
Thou sittest at the right hand of God, * in the glory of the Father.
We believe that thou shalt come * to be our Judge.

Kneel for the following verse
We therefore pray thee, help thy servants, * whom thou hast redeemed with thy precious Blood.

Make them to be numbered with thy Saints, * in glory everlasting.
O Lord, save thy people, * and bless thine heritage.
Govern them, * and lift them up for ever.
Day by day * we magnify thee;

During the following verse, by local custom, all make a profound bow.
And we worship thy Name * ever, world without end.

Vouchsafe, O Lord, to keep us * this day without sin.
O Lord, have mercy upon us, * have mercy upon us.
O Lord, let thy mercy lighten upon us, * as our trust is in thee.
O Lord, in thee have I trusted, * let me never be confounded.
Reliqua omittuntur, nisi Laudes separandae sint.
Skip the rest, unless praying Lauds separately.
