Hymnus
O gloriósa dómina,
excélsa super sídera,
qui te creávit próvide,
lactas sacráto úbere.
Quod Eva tristis ábstulit,
tu reddis almo gérmine;
intrent ut astra flébiles,
sternis benígna sémitam.
Tu regis alti iánua
et porta lucis fúlgida;
vitam datam per Vírginem,
gentes redémptæ, pláudite.
Patri sit et Paráclito
tuóque Nato glória,
qui veste te mirábili
circumdedérunt grátiæ. Amen.
Vel:
Quæ caritátis fúlgidum
es astrum, Virgo, súperis,
spei nobis mortálibus
fons vivax es et prófluus.
Sic vales, celsa Dómina,
in Nati cor piíssimi,
ut qui fidénter póstulat,
per te secúrus ímpetret.
Opem tua benígnitas
non solum fert poscéntibus,
sed et libénter sǽpius
precántum vota prǽvenit.
In te misericórdia,
in te magnificéntia;
tu bonitátis cúmulas
quicquid creáta póssident.
Patri sit et Paráclito
tuóque Nato glória,
qui veste te mirábili
circumdedérunt grátiæ. Amen.
Hymn
Mary Immaculate, star of the morning,
  Chosen before the creation began,
Chosen to bring in the light of thy dawning,
  Woe to the serpent and rescue to man.
Here, in this world of both shadow and sadness
  Veiling thy splendour, thy course hast thou run:
Now thou art throned in all glory and gladness,
  Crowned by the hand of thy Saviour and Son.
Sinners, we worship thy sinless perfection;
  Fallen and weak, for thy pity we plead:
Grant us the shield of thy sov’reign protection,
  Measure thine aid by the depth of our need.
Bend from thy throne at the voice of our crying,
  Bend to this earth which thy footsteps have trod:
Stretch out thine arms to us, living and dying,
  Mary Immaculate, Mother of God.

Psalmus 118:145-152
Prævenérunt óculi mei ad te dilúculo.
145Clamávi in toto corde, exáudi me, Dómine;*
  iustificatiónes tuas servábo.
146Clamávi ad te, salvum me fac,*
  ut custódiam testimónia tua.
147Prævéni dilúculo et clamávi,*
  in verba tua supersperávi.
148Prævenérunt óculi mei vigílias,*
  ut meditárer elóquia tua.
149Vocem meam audi secúndum misericórdiam tuam, Dómine,*
  secúndum iudícium tuum vivífica me.
150Appropinquavérunt persequéntes me in malítia,*
  a lege autem tua longe facti sunt.
151Prope es tu, Dómine,*
  et ómnia præcépta tua véritas.
152Ab inítio cognóvi de testimóniis tuis,*
  quia in ætérnum fundásti ea.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Prævenérunt óculi mei ad te dilúculo.
Psalm 118 (119): 145-152
My eyes watch for you before dawn.
I call on you with all my heart –
  answer me, Lord.
  I will obey your laws.
I call on you –
  save me
  so that I can keep your decrees.
At first light I cry to you,
  I put all my hope in your word.
In the night I keep watch,
  pondering your sayings.
In your mercy, Lord, hear my voice;
  in your justice, give me life.
My persecutors come to do me harm:
  they are far from your law.
But you, Lord, are near to me,
  and you are trustworthy in all your precepts.
From the beginning I have known your decrees,
  how you have made them to last for ever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
My eyes watch for you before dawn.

Hymnus victoriæ post transitum maris Rubri
Qui vicerunt bestiam, cantabant canticum Moysi, servi Dei” (Cf. Ap 15, 2-3).
Fortitúdo mea et laus mea Dóminus et factus est mihi in salútem.
1Cantémus Dómino:†

11Quis símilis tui in diis, Dómine?†
  Quis símilis tui, magníficus in sanctitáte,*
  terríbilis atque laudábilis, fáciens mirabília?

CanticleExodus 15
Hymn of victory after crossing the Red Sea
The Lord is my strength, I will sing his praise: he is my salvation.
I will sing to the Lord, for his triumph is glorious. Horse and rider he has cast into the sea.
The Lord is my support and my strength, and he has saved me.
  This is my God, and I will give him glory
  This is my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
The Lord is a warrior – ‘The Lord’ is his name!
  Pharaoh’s chariots and army he has thrown into the sea.
Your storm raged, and the waters were piled high,
  the flowing waters were a rampart, the sea-bed was exposed.
The enemy said: “I will follow and surround them;
  I will divide their spoils,
  have my fill of booty,
  draw my sword and kill them all.”
Your wind blew,
  and the sea covered them,
  they sank like lead in the raging waters.
What god is like you, O Lord?
What god is like you,
  so great in your holiness,
a worker of miracles,
  terrible and worthy of praise?
You stretched out your hand and the earth swallowed them.
In your mercy you led your people whom you had redeemed,
  in your strength you brought them to your dwelling-place.
You will lead them in and establish them
  on the mountain that is your inheritance,
your solid dwelling-place, which you made, Lord;
  your sanctuary, Lord, which your hands made firm.
The Lord will reign, to eternity and beyond!
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
The Lord is my strength, I will sing his praise: he is my salvation.

  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
Let us celebrate the commemoration of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that she may intercede for us with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Or:
Blessed are you, O Virgin Mary, above all women on earth. The Lord God himself has chosen you.
Or:
Through you, immaculate Virgin, the life we had lost was returned to us. You received a child from heaven, and brought forth to the world a Saviour.
Or:
Hail Mary, full of grace; the Lord is with you. You are the most blessed of all women, alleluia.
Or:
How shall I fittingly praise you, holy and immaculate virginity of Mary? Through you we received our Redeemer, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Or:
You are the glory of Jerusalem! You are the joy of Israel! You are the highest honour of our race.
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
  for he has come to his people and brought about their redemption.
He has raised up the sign of salvation
  in the house of his servant David,
as he promised through the mouth of the holy ones,
  his prophets through the ages:
to rescue us from our enemies
  and all who hate us,
to take pity on our fathers,
  to remember his holy covenant
and the oath he swore to Abraham our father,
  that he would give himself to us,
that we could serve him without fear
 – freed from the hands of our enemies –
in uprightness and holiness before him,
  for all of our days.
And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High:
  for you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare his path,
to let his people know their salvation,
  so that their sins may be forgiven.
Through the bottomless mercy of our God,
  one born on high will visit us
to give light to those who walk in darkness,
  who live in the shadow of death;
  to lead our feet in the path of peace.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.

Prayers and intercessions
Let us proclaim the greatness of our Saviour who chose to be born of the Virgin Mary. Confident that he will hear us, we ask:
Lord, may your mother pray for us.
Sun of justice, you showed your day was dawning in the immaculate Virgin Mary;
  help us to walk in the daylight of your presence.
Lord, may your mother pray for us.
Eternal Word, in the living flesh of Mary you found a dwelling place on earth;
  remain with us for ever in hearts free from sin.
Lord, may your mother pray for us.
Christ, our Saviour, you willed that your mother should be there when you died;
  through her intercession may we rejoice to share your suffering.
Lord, may your mother pray for us.
Loving Saviour, while hanging on the cross, you gave your mother Mary to be the mother of John;
  let us be known as her children by our way of living.
Lord, may your mother pray for us.

Pater noster, qui es in cælis:
sanctificétur nomen tuum;
advéniat regnum tuum;
fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidiánum da nobis hódie;

sed líbera nos a malo.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
  hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
  Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
  and forgive us our trespasses,
  as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
  but deliver us from evil.

Sanctíssimæ venerántibus Vírginis Maríæ memóriam gloriósam, ipsíus nobis, quǽsumus, Dómine, intercessióne concéde, ut de plenitúdine grátiæ tuæ nos quoque mereámur accípere. Per Dóminum.

  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.
