Sing praise to our Creator,
O sons of Adam’s race;

Baptized into His grace.

Praise the Holy Trinity,
Undivided Unity;
Holy God, Mighty God,
God Immortal, be adored.

To Jesus Christ give glory,

As members of His Body

Now praise the Holy Spirit,
poured forth upon the earth;
Who sanctifies and guides us,
Confirmed in our rebirth.

PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: Let your loving kindness console me as you promised.

Psalm 119:73-80
X (Yod)


It was your hands that made me and shaped me:
help me to learn your commands.
Your faithful will see me and rejoice
for I trust in your word.

Lord, I know that your decrees are right,
that you afflicted me justly.
Let your love be ready to console me
by your promise to your servant.

Let your love come and I shall live
for your law is my delight.
Shame the proud who harm me with lies
while I ponder your precepts.

Let your faithful turn to me,
those who know your will.
Let my heart be blameless in your statutes
lest I be ashamed. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: We know that your rulings are just ones, Lord, and so we ask for your mercy; treat us gently and we will not be put to shame.

Antiphon: Let your loving kindness console me as you promised.


Antiphon 2: Protect me, God, from those who rise up against me.

Psalm 59:2-5,10-11,17-18
Prayer for help against enemies
These words of the Savior teach us the devotion that all should have for the Father. (Eusebius of Caesarea)


Rescue me, God, from my foes;
protect me from those who attack me.
O rescue me from those who do evil
and save me from blood-thirsty men.

See, they lie in wait for my life;
powerful men together against me.
For no offense, no sin of mine, Lord,
for no guilt of mine they rush to take their stand.

Awake, come to my aid and see!

O my Strength, it is you to whom I turn,
for you, O God, are my stronghold,
the God who shows me love.

O God, come to my aid
and let me look in triumph on my foes.

As for me, I will sing of your strength
and each morning acclaim your love
for you have been my stronghold,
a refuge in the day of my distress.

O my Strength, it is you to whom I turn,
for you, O God, are my stronghold,
the God who shows me love.

As for me, I will sing of your strength
and each morning acclaim your love
for you have been my stronghold,
a refuge in the day of my distress.

O my Strength, it is you to whom I turn,
for you, O God, are my stronghold,
the God who shows me love. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Lord, God of power, you rescued your Son from the grasp of evil people. Deliver us from evil and confirm our trust in you, so that with our rising we may sing of your power and exult in your mercy at dawn.

Antiphon:   Protect me, God, from those who rise up against me.


Antiphon 3: We are happy to be chastened by God, who heals us as he wounds.

Psalm 60
Prayer after disaster
You will suffer in the world, but have confidence; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)


O God, you have rejected us and broken us.
You have been angry; come back to us.

You have made the earth quake, torn it open.
Repair what is shattered for it sways.
You have inflicted hardships on your people
and made us drink a wine that dazed us.

You have given those who fear you a signal
to flee from the enemy's bow.
O come, and deliver your friends,
help with your right hand and reply.

From his holy place God has made this promise;
I will triumph and divide the land of Shechem,
I will measure out the valley of Succoth.

Gilead is mine and Manasseh,
Ephraim I take for my helmet,
Judah for my commander's staff.

Moab I will use for my washbowl,
on Edom I will plant my shoe.
Over the Philistines I will shout in triumph.

But who will lead me to conquer the fortress?
Who will bring me face to face with Edom?
Will you utterly reject us, O God,
and no longer march with our armies?

Give us help against the foe:
for the help of man is vain.
With God we shall do bravely
and he will trample down our foes. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Lord Jesus, all power and authority is yours; you have overcome the world. Give us courage when evil seems to triumph and help us never to forget that you are with us to the end of time.

Antiphon: We are happy to be chastened by God, who heals us as he wounds.

TERCE


READING
Deuteronomy 1:31b

The Lord, your God, carried you, as a man carries his child, all along your journey until you arrived at this place.

Support me, Lord, according to your promise, and I shall live.
 - Let my hope in you not be in vain.


PRAYER
Lord Jesus Christ,
at this hour you were led out
to die on the cross
for the salvation of the world.
We ask your forgiveness for the sins of our past
and your protection from all future evil.
Bring us to the peace and joy of that kingdom
where you live and reign for ever and ever.



SEXT


READING
Baruch 4:28-29

As your hearts have been disposed to stray from God,
  turn now ten times the more to seek him; For he who has brought disaster upon you
  will, in saving you, bring you back enduring joy.

With the Lord there is mercy
- and the fullness of redemption.


PRAYER
Lord Jesus Christ,
at noon, when darkness covered all the earth
you mounted the wood of the cross
as the innocent victim for our redemption.
May your light be always with us
to guide us to eternal life in that kingdom
where you live and reign for ever and ever.



NONE


READING
Wisdom 1:13-15

God did not make death,
  nor does he rejoice in the destruction of the living.
For he fashioned all things that they might have being;
  and the creatures of the world are wholesome,
And there is not a destructive drug among them
  nor any domain of the nether world on earth,
For justice is undying.

God has snatched me from the bonds of death.
- I shall walk among the living in his presence.


PRAYER
Lord Jesus Christ,
you brought the repentant thief
from the suffering of the cross
to the joy of your kingdom.
Lord, when we die,
may we who confess our sins
be brought to you through the gates of heaven,
that we may have eternal joy in that kingdom
where you live and reign for ever and ever.


Let us praise the Lord.
- And give him thanks.
