Hymnus:
Memento salutis auctor.
Quod nostri quondam corporis,
Ex illibata virgine
Nascendo, formam sumpseris.
Maria mater gratiae,
Mater misericordiae,
Tu nos ab hoste protege,
Et hora mortis suscipe.
Gloria tibi Domine,
Qui natus es de virgine,
Cum patre, et sancto spiritu,
In sempiterna saecula. Amen.

Hymn:
Be mindful author of our health,
That thou sometime didst take on thee
Of a pure virgin being born,
The form of our humanity.
Mary that mother art of grace,
Of mercy mother also art,
Save and defend us from our foe,
Receive us when we hence depart.
Glory be unto thee O Lord,
That born was of the virgin pure,
With the father and the holy Ghost,
All ages ever to endure. Amen.

Ant: Ave Maria.

Ant: Hail Mary.

Psalmus [119]:
Ad Dominum cum tribularet, clamavi: et exaudivit me.
Domine libera animam meam a labiis iniquis: et a lingua dolosa.
Quid detur tibi, aut quid apponatur tibi: ad linguam dolosam?
Sagittae potentis acutae: cum carbonibus desolatoriis.
Heu mihi, quia incolatus meus prolongatus est, habitavi cum habitationibus Cedar: multum incola fuit anima mea.
Cum his, qui oderant pacem, eram pacificus: cum loquebar illis, inpugnabant me gratis.

Psalm [119]:
When I was in tribulation I cried to our Lord: and he heard me.
O Lord deliver my soul from unjust lips: and from a deceitful tongue.
What may be given to thee, or what may be added unto thee: to a deceitful tongue?
The sharp arrows of the mighty: with coals of desolation.
Woe is unto me, that my sojourning is prolonged, I have dwelt with the inhabitants of Cedar: my soul hath been much a sojourner.
With them, that hated peace, I was peaceable: when I spake to them, they impugned me without cause.

Gloria Patri, et Filio: et Spiritui sancto.
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper: et in saecula saeculorum, Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost.
Even as it was in the beginning, and now, and ever: and world without end. Amen.

Psalmus [120]:
Levavi oculos meos in montes: unde veniet auxilium mihi.
Auxilium meum a Domino: qui fecit caelum et terram.
Non det in commotionem pedem tuum: neque dormitet, qui custodit te.
Ecce non dormitabit: neque dormiet, qui custodit Israel.
Dominus custodit te, Dominus protectio tua: super manum dexteram tuam.
Per diem sol non uret te: neque luna per noctem.
Dominus custodit te ab omni malo: custodiat animam tuam Dominus.
Dominus custodiat introitum tuum, et exitum tuum: ex hoc nunc, et usque in saeculum.

Psalm [120]:
I have lifted up mine eyes unto the mountains: from whence help shall come to me.
My help is from our Lord: which made heaven and earth.
Let him not give thy foot to be moved: neither let him slumber that keepeth thee.
Lo he shall not slumber: nor sleep, that keepeth Israel.
Our Lord keepeth thee, our Lord is thy protection: upon thy right hand.
By day the sun shall not burn thee: nor the moon by night.
Our Lord doth keep thee from all evil: let our Lord keep thy soul.
Let our Lord keep thy coming in, and thy going out: from henceforth, now and for ever.

Gloria Patri, et Filio: et Spiritui sancto.
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper: et in saecula saeculorum, Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost.
Even as it was in the beginning, and now, and ever: and world without end. Amen.

Psalmus [121]:
Laetatus sum in his, quae dicta sunt mihi: in domum Domini ibimus.
Stantes erant pedes nostri: in atriis tuis Hierusalem.
Hierusalem quae aedificatur ut civitas: cuius participatio eius in idipsum.
Illuc enim ascenderunt tribus, tribus Domini, testimonium Israel: ad confitendum nomini Domini.
Quia illic sederunt sedes in iudicio: sedes super domum David.
Rogate quae ad pacem sunt Hierusalem: et abundantia diligentibus te.
Fiat pax in virtute tua: et abundantia in turribus tuis.
Propter fratres meos, et proximos meos: loquebar pacem de te.
Propter domum Domini Dei nostri: quaesivi bona tibi.

Psalm [121]:
I rejoiced in those things, which were said to me: we shall go into the house of our Lord.
Our feet were standing: in thy courts O Jerusalem.
Jerusalem which is built as a city: whose participation therefore is in itself.
For thither did the tribes ascend, the tribes of our Lord, the testimony of Israel: to confess unto the name of our Lord.
Because seats sat there in judgment: seats upon the house of David.
Ask ye the things that are for the peace of Jerusalem: and abundance to them that love thee.
Peace be made in thy strength: and abundance in thy towers.
For my brethren, and my neighbours' sakes: I spake peace of thee.
For the house of the Lord our God: I have sought good things to thee.

Gloria Patri, et Filio: et Spiritui sancto.
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper: et in saecula saeculorum, Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost.
Even as it was in the beginning, and now, and ever: and world without end. Amen.

Ant: Ave Maria gratia plena, Dominus tecum, benedicta tu in mulieribus, Alleluia.

Ant: Hail Mary, full of grace: our Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women, Alleluia.

Capitulum (Isaie 11):
Egredietur virga de radice Iesse, et flos de radice eius ascendet, et requiescet super eum spiritus Domini.

R: Et clamor meus ad te veniat.

R: And let my cry come unto thee.

Oratio:
Deus, qui de beatae Mariae virginis utero, verbum tuum angelo nunciante, carnem suscipere voluisti: praesta supplicibus tuis, ut qui vere eam genetricem Dei credimus: eius apud te intercessionibus adiuvemur. Per eundem Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum filium tuum: Qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate spiritus sancti Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum.

Prayer:
O God, which wouldst thy word, should take flesh, of the womb of blessed Mary the virgin, the angel declaring it, grant unto us thy suppliants, that we which truly do believe her to be the mother of God: may be by her intercessions holpen with thee. Through the same Lord Jesus Christ thy son: who liveth and reigneth, God, with thee, in the unity of the holy Ghost, world without end.
