En clara vox redárguit
Obscúra quæque, pérsonans:

Laxáre gratis débitum:
Omnes simul cum lácrimis

R. Thanks be to God.

Hymn
Hark, a herald voice is calling;
“Christ is nigh,” it seems to say;
“Cast away the dreams of darkness,
O ye children of the day.”

Startled at the solemn warning,
Let the earth-bound soul arise;
Christ, her sun, all sloth dispelling,
Shines upon the morning skies.

Lo, the Lamb, so long expected,
Comes with pardon down from heaven;
Let us haste, with tears of sorrow,
One and all to be forgiven.

So when next he comes with glory,
Wrapping all the earth in fear,
May he then as our defender
On the clouds of heaven appear.

Honour, glory, virtue, merit,
To the Father and the Son,
With the co-eternal Spirit,
While eternal ages run.
Amen.

V. A voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord.
R. Make straight his paths.

1:74 That being delivered from the hand of our enemies, * we may serve him without fear,
1:75 In holiness and justice before him, * all our days.
1:76 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: * for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways:
1:77 To give knowledge of salvation to his people, * unto the remission of their sins:
1:78 Through the bowels of the mercy of our God, * in which the Orient from on high hath visited us:
1:79 To enlighten them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death: * to direct our feet into the way of peace.

Antiphona finalis B.M.V.
Alma Redemptóris Mater, quæ pérvia cæli porta manes,
et stella maris, succúrre cadénti,
Súrgere qui curat, pópulo: tu quæ genuísti,

Virgo prius ac postérius, Gabriélis ab ore
Sumens illud Ave, peccatórum miserére.

Final Antiphon of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Mother of Christ, hear thou thy people's cry
Star of the deep and Portal of the sky!

Thou Virgin first and last, let us thy mercy see.

V. May the divine help remain with us always
R. Amen.
