Invitatory {Antiph. from the Psalter for the season of the Church year}
Ant. The Lord is now near * O come, let us adore Him.
Ant. The Lord is now near * O come, let us adore 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. The Lord is now near * O come, let us adore 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 adore 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. The Lord is now near * O come, let us adore 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 adore 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. The Lord is now near * O come, let us adore Him.

Hymnus {ex Psalterio secundum tempora}
Verbum supernum, prodiens
E Patris æterni sinu,
Qui natus orbi subvenis,
Labénte cursu témporis:

Illúmina nunc péctora,
Tuoque amore concrema;
Ut cor caduca deserens
Cæli voluptas impleat.

Ut, cum tribunal Iudicis
Damnábit igni noxios,
Et vox amica debitum
Vocábit ad cælum pios;

Non esca flammárum nigros
Volvámur inter turbines,
Vultu Dei sed compotes
Cæli fruámur gaudiis.

* Patri, simulque Fílio,
Tibique, Sancte Spíritus,
Sicut fuit, sit iugiter
Sæclum per omne gloria.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Psalter for the season of the Church year}
Celestial Word, to this our earth
Sent down from God's eternal clime,
To save mankind by mortal birth
Into a world of change and time;

Enlighten our hearts; vain hopes destroy;
And in thy love's consuming fire
Fill all the soul with heavenly joy,
And melt the dross of low desire.

So when the Judge of quick and dead
Shall bid his awful summons come,
To whelm the guilty soul with dread,
And call the blessed to their home.

Saved from the whirling, black abyss,
Forevermore to us be given
To share the feast of saintly bliss,
And see the face of God in heaven.

To God the Father and the Son
Our songs with one accord we raise;
And to the Holy Spirit, One
With them, be ever equal praise
Amen.

68:10 Quóniam propter te sustínui oppróbrium: * opéruit confúsio fáciem meam.
68:11 Extráneus factus sum frátribus meis, * et peregrínus fíliis matris meæ.
68:12 Quóniam zelus domus tuæ comédit me: * et oppróbria exprobrántium tibi cecidérunt super me.
68:13 Et opérui in ieiúnio ánimam meam: * et factum est in oppróbrium mihi.
68:13 Et pósui vestiméntum meum cilícium: * et factus sum illis in parábolam.

Psalm 68(1-13) [7]
68:1 Save me, O God: for the waters are come in even unto my soul.
68:2 ‡ I stick fast in the mire of the deep: * and there is no sure standing.
68:3 I am come into the depth of the sea: * and a tempest hath overwhelmed me.
68:4 I have laboured with crying; my jaws are become hoarse: * my eyes have failed, whilst I hope in my God.
68:5 They are multiplied above the hairs of my head, * who hate me without cause.
68:6 My enemies are grown strong who have wrongfully persecuted me: * then did I pay that which I took not away.
68:7 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; * and my offences are not hidden from thee.
68:8 Let not them be ashamed for me, who look for thee, O Lord, * the Lord of hosts.
68:9 Let them not be confounded on my account, * who seek thee, O God of Israel.
68:10 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; * shame hath covered my face.
68:11 I am become a stranger to my brethren, * and an alien to the sons of my mother.
68:12 For the zeal of thy house hath eaten me up: * and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
68:13 And I covered my soul in fasting: * and it was made a reproach to me.
68:13 And I made haircloth my garment: * and I became a byword to them.
68:13 They that sat in the gate spoke against me: * and they that drank wine made me their song.
68:13 But as for me, my prayer is to thee, O Lord; * for the time of thy good pleasure, O God.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

68:15 Éripe me de luto, ut non infígar: * líbera me ab iis, qui odérunt me, et de profúndis aquárum.
68:16 Non me demérgat tempéstas aquæ, neque absórbeat me profúndum: * neque úrgeat super me púteus os suum.
68:17 Exáudi me, Dómine, quóniam benígna est misericórdia tua: * secúndum multitúdinem miseratiónum tuárum réspice in me.
68:18 Et ne avértas fáciem tuam a púero tuo: * quóniam tríbulor, velóciter exáudi me.
68:19 Inténde ánimæ meæ, et líbera eam: * propter inimícos meos éripe me.
68:20 Tu scis impropérium meum, et confusiónem meam, * et reveréntiam meam.
68:21 In conspéctu tuo sunt omnes qui tríbulant me: * impropérium exspectávit cor meum, et misériam.
68:22 Et sustínui qui simul contristarétur, et non fuit: * et qui consolarétur, et non invéni.
68:23 Et dedérunt in escam meam fel: * et in siti mea potavérunt me acéto.
68:24 Fiat mensa eórum coram ipsis in láqueum, * et in retributiónes, et in scándalum.
68:25 Obscuréntur óculi eórum ne vídeant: * et dorsum eórum semper incúrva.
68:26 Effúnde super eos iram tuam: * et furor iræ tuæ comprehéndat eos.
68:27 Fiat habitátio eórum desérta: * et in tabernáculis eórum non sit qui inhábitet.
68:28 Quóniam quem tu percussísti, persecúti sunt: * et super dolórem vúlnerum meórum addidérunt.
68:29 Appóne iniquitátem super iniquitátem eórum: * et non intrent in iustítiam tuam.
68:29 Deleántur de libro vivéntium: * et cum iustis non scribántur.

68:15 Draw me out of the mire, that I may not stick fast: * deliver me from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
68:16 Let not the tempest of water drown me, nor the deep swallow me up: * and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
68:17 Hear me, O Lord, for thy mercy is kind; * look upon me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
68:18 And turn not away thy face from thy servant: * for I am in trouble, hear me speedily.
68:19 Attend to my soul, and deliver it: * save me because of my enemies.
68:20 Thou knowest my reproach, and my confusion, * and my shame.
68:21 In thy sight are all they that afflict me; * my heart hath expected reproach and misery.
68:22 And I looked for one that would grieve together with me, * but there was none: and for one that would comfort me, and I found none.
68:23 And they gave me gall for my food, * and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
68:24 Let their table become as a snare before them, * and a recompense, and a stumblingblock.
68:25 Let their eyes be darkened that they see not; * and their back bend thou down always.
68:26 Pour out thy indignation upon them: * and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
68:27 Let their habitation be made desolate: * and let there be none to dwell in their tabernacles.
68:28 Because they have persecuted him whom thou hast smitten; * and they have added to the grief of my wounds.
68:29 Add thou iniquity upon their iniquity: * and let them not come into thy justice.
68:29 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living; * and with the just let them not be written.

15 He that walketh in justices, and speaketh truth, that casteth away avarice by oppression, and shaketh his hands from all bribes, that stoppeth his ears lest he hear blood, and shutteth his eyes that he may see no evil.
16 He shall dwell on high, the fortifications of rocks shall be his highness: bread is given him, his waters are sure.
