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.

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.

Hymnus {ex Psalterio secundum tempora}
Ex more docti mýstico
Servémus hoc ieiúnium,
Deno diérum círculo
Ducto quater notíssimo.

Lex et prophetæ prímitus
Hoc prætulérunt, póstmodum
Christus sacrávit, ómnium
Rex atque factor témporum.

Utámur ergo párcius
Verbis, cibis et pótibus,
Somno, iocis, et árctius
Perstémus in custódia.

Vitémus autem nóxia,
Quæ súbruunt mentes vagas:
Nullúmque demus cállidi
Hostis locum tyránnidi.

Flectámus iram víndicem,
Plorémus ante Iúdicem,
Clamémus ore súpplici,
Dicámus omnes cérnui:

Nostris malis offéndimus
Tuam, Deus, cleméntiam:
Effúnde nobis désuper,
Remíssor, indulgéntiam.

Meménto quod sumus tui,
Licet cadúci, plásmatis:
Ne des honórem nóminis
Tui, precámur, álteri.

Laxa malum, quod fécimus,
Auge bonum, quod póscimus:
Placére quo tandem tibi
Possímus hic, et pérpetim.

Præsta, beáta Trínitas,
Concéde, simplex Unitas,
Ut fructuósa sint tuis
Ieiuniórum múnera.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Psalter for the season of the Church year}
The fast, as taught by holy lore,
We keep in solemn course once more:
The fast to all men known, and bound
In forty days of yearly round.

The law and seers that were of old
In divers ways this Lent foretold,
Which Christ, all seasons’ King and Guide,
In after ages sanctified.

More sparing therefore let us make
The words we speak, the food we take,
Our sleep and mirth, —and closer barred
Be every sense in holy guard.

Avoid the evil thoughts that roll
Like waters o’er the heedless soul;
Nor let the foe occasion find
Our souls in slavery to bind.

In prayer together let us fall,
And cry for mercy, one and all,
And weep before the Judge’s feet,
And his avenging wrath entreat.

Thy grace have we offended sore,
By sins, O God, which we deplore;
But pour upon us from on high,
O pardoning One, thy clemency.

Remember thou, though frail we be,
That yet thine handiwork are we;
Nor let the honour of thy name
Be by another put to shame.

Forgive the sin that we have wrought;
Increase the good that we have sought:
That we at length, our wanderings o'er,
May please thee here and evermore.

Grant O thou Blessed Trinity,
Grant, O Essential Unity,
That this our fast of forty days
May work our profit and thy praise.
Amen.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Ioánnem
Ioannes 9:1-38
In illo témpore: Prætériens Iesus, vidit hóminem cæcum a nativitáte: et interrogavérunt eum discípuli eius: Rabbi, quis peccávit, hic, aut paréntes eius, ut cæcus nascerétur? Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Augustíni Epíscopi
Tract. 44 in Ioánnem, circa initium
Ea quæ fecit Dóminus noster Iesus Christus, stupénda atque miránda, et ópera, et verba sunt: ópera, quia facta sunt: verba, quia signa sunt. Si ergo quid signíficet hoc quod factum est, cogitémus: genus humánum est iste cæcus. Hæc enim cǽcitas cóntigit in primo hómine per peccátum, de quo omnes oríginem dúximus, non solum mortis, sed étiam iniquitátis. Si enim cǽcitas est infidélitas, et illuminátio fides: quem fidélem, quando venit Christus, invénit? Quandóquidem Apóstolus natus in gente prophetárum dicit: Fúimus et nos aliquándo natúra fílii iræ, sicut et céteri. Si fílii iræ, fílii vindíctæ, fílii pœnæ, fílii gehénnæ: quómodo natúra, nisi quia peccánte primo hómine vítium pro natúra inolévit? Si vitium pro natúra inolévit, secúndum méntem omnis homo cæcus natus est.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Spléndida facta est fácies Móysi, dum respíceret in eum Dóminus:
* Vidéntes senióres claritátem vultus eius, admirántes timuérunt valde.
V. Cumque descendísset de monte Sínai, portábat duas tábulas testimónii, ignórans quod cornúta esset fácies eius ex consórtio sermónis Dei.
R. Vidéntes senióres claritátem vultus eius, admirántes timuérunt valde.

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

Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to John
John 9:1-38
At that time, Jesus, passing by, saw a man, who was blind from his birth. And so on.

Homily by St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
44th Tract on John.
Dread and wondrous are all the things which our Lord Jesus Christ did, both His works and His words; the works, because He wrought them; the words, because they are deep. If, therefore, we consider the meaning of this work of His, we see that that man which was blind from his birth was a figure of mankind. This spiritual blindness was the consequence of the sin of the first man, from whom we all inherit by birth, not death only, but depravity also. For if blindness be unbelief, and faith, light, whom, when Christ came, did He find faithful? May, the Apostle who had himself been born of the race of which the Prophets came, saith: We also were by nature children of wrath, even as others. Eph. ii. 3. And if children of wrath, then children also of vengeance, children of damnation, children of hell. And wherefore so by nature, unless it were that the sin of the first man had made all his descendants to be born in sin, in that they partook of his nature? If, then, our nature bring sin with it, all men, according to the spirit, are born blind.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. After that the Lord had looked upon him, the face of Moses shone.
* And when the elders saw that his face shone, they marvelled and were sore afraid.
V. And when he came down from Mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in his hand, he wist not that his face shone, because that God had spoken with him.
R. And when the elders saw that his face shone, they marvelled and were sore afraid.
V. Iube, Dómine, benedícere.
Benedictio. Divínum auxílium máneat semper nobíscum. Amen.

Lectio 2
Venit Dóminus: quid fecit? Magnum mystérium commendávit. Exspuit in terram, de salíva sua lutum fecit: quia Verbum caro factum est, et inunxit óculos cæci. Inúnctus erat, et nondum vidébat. Misit illum ad piscínam, quæ vocátur Síloë. Pertínuit autem ad Evangelístam commendáre nobis nomen huius piscínæ, et ait: Quod interpretátur Missus. Iam quis sit missus agnóscitis. Nisi enim ille fuísset missus, nemo nostrum esset ab iniquitáte dimíssus. Lávit ergo óculos in ea piscína, quæ interpretátur Missus; baptizátus est in Christo. Si ergo quando eum in seipso quodámmodo baptizávit, tunc illuminávit: quando inúnxit, fortásse catechúmenum fecit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Ecce mitto Angelum meum, qui præcédat te, et custódiat semper:
* Obsérva et audi vocem meam, et inimícus ero inimícis tuis, et affligéntes te afflígam: et præcédet te Angelus meus.
V. Israël, si me audíeris, non erit in te deus recens, neque adorábis deum aliénum: ego enim Dóminus.
R. Observa et audi vocem meam, et inimícus ero inimícis tuis, et affligéntes te afflígam: et præcédet te Angelus meus.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. God's most mighty strength alway be His people's staff and stay. Amen.

Reading 2
The Lord came; and what did He? He set before us a great mystery. Jesus spat on the ground, and made clay of the Spittle for the Word was made flesh. And He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay but yet that man saw not. He was anointed, indeed, but yet still he saw not. And He said unto him: Go, wash in the Pool of Siloam. Now, it was the duty of the Evangelist to impress upon us the name of this Pool, and therefore he saith Siloam, which is, by interpretation, Sent. Ye, my brethren, know Who is signified where it is written: (The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a law-giver from his loins, until) He that shall be Sent cometh. Gen. xlix. 10. Yea, He it is, Who, if He had not been sent, we had never been sent loose out of the prison-house of sin. The blind man went his way therefore, and washed his eyes in that Pool, which is, by interpretation, Sent in other words, he was baptized in Christ. When, therefore, he had figuratively been baptized in Him Whom the Father hath Sent into the world, he came seeing. When he was anointed, he was perchance made a figure of a Catechumen.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Behold, I send My Angel before thee, to keep thee.
* Beware, and obey My voice; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries; for Mine Angel shall go before thee.
V. O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto Me, there shall no strange god be in thee, neither shalt thou worship any strange god, for I am the Lord.
R. Beware, and obey My voice; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries; for Mine Angel shall go before thee.
V. Iube, Dómine, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Audístis grande mystérium. Intérroga hóminem: Christiánus es? Respóndet tibi: Non sum. Si pagánus es, aut Iudǽus? Si autem díxerit, Non sum: adhuc quæris ab eo, Catechúmenus, an fidélis? Si respónderit tibi, Catechúmenus: inúnctus est, nondum lotus. Sed unde inúnctus? Quære, et respóndet. Quære ab illo, in quem credat? Eo ipso quo catechúmenus est, dicit: In Christum. Ecce modo loquor et fidélibus et catechúmenis. Quid dixi de sputo et luto? Quia Verbum caro factum est; hoc catechúmeni áudiunt: sed non eis súfficit ad quod inúncti sunt: festínent ad lavácrum, si lumen inquírunt.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Atténdite, pópule meus, legem meam:
* Inclínate aurem vestram in verba oris mei.
V. Apériam in parábolis os meum: loquar propositiónes ab inítio sǽculi.
R. Inclínate aurem vestram in verba oris mei.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Inclínate aurem vestram in verba oris mei.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 3
We have heard this great mystery. Ask of a man: Art thou a Christian? He answereth thee: I am not. Then, if thou ask him: Art thou a pagan then, or a Jew? And he still saith unto thee Nay and thou say Art thou then a Catechumen, though not yet one of the faithful? and he saith Yea, a Catechumen then there thou seest a man anointed, but not yet washed. With what hath he been anointed? Ask of him, and he will tell thee. Ask of him in Whom he believeth, and, being a Catechumen, he will say: In Christ. But, behold, I speak before both Faithful and Catechumens. What said I touching the. Spittle and the clay? I said for 'the Word was made flesh.' This the Catechumens hear, but it is not enough for them to be anointed; they must make haste to the washing, if they would have their eyes opened.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Give ear, O My people, to My law;
* Incline your ears to the words of My mouth.
V. I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter dark sayings of old.
R. Incline your ears to the words of My mouth.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Incline your ears to the words of My mouth.
Reliqua omittuntur, nisi Laudes separandae sint.
