Hymnus
Rerum, Deus, tenax vigor,
immótus in te pérmanens,
lucis diúrnæ témpora
succéssibus detérminans,
Largíre clarum véspere,
quo vita numquam décidat,
sed præmium mortis sacræ
perénnis instet glória.
Præsta, Pater piíssime,
Patríque compar Unice,
cum Spíritu Paráclito
regnans per omne sæculum. Amen.
Hymn
Eternal Father, loving God,
Who made us from the dust of earth,
Transform us by the Spirit’s grace,
Give value to our little worth.
Prepare us for that day of days
When Christ from heaven will come with might
To call us out of dust again,
Our bodies glorified in light.
O Godhead, here untouched, unseen,
All things created bear your trace;
The seed of glory sown in man
Will flower when we see your face.
Stanbrook Abbey Hymnal

1Dóminus pascit me, et nihil mihi déerit:*
  2in páscuis viréntibus me collocávit,
super aquas quiétis edúxit me,*
  3ánimam meam refécit.
Dedúxit me super sémitas iustítiæ*
  propter nomen suum.
4Nam et si ambulávero in valle umbræ mortis, non timébo mala,*
  quóniam tu mecum es.
Virga tua et báculus tuus,*
  ipsa me consoláta sunt.
5Parásti in conspéctu meo mensam*
  advérsus eos, qui tríbulant me;
impinguásti in óleo caput meum,*
  et calix meus redúndat.
6Etenim benígnitas et misericórdia subsequéntur me*
  ómnibus diébus vitæ meæ,
et inhabitábo in domo Dómini*
  in longitúdinem diérum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.

Psalm 22 (23)
The good shepherd
Fresh and green are the pastures where the Lord gives me repose, alleluia.
The Lord is my shepherd: I shall lack nothing.
He has taken me to green pastures,
  he has led me to still waters;
  he has healed my spirit.
He has led me along right paths
  for his own name’s sake.
Even if I walk in the valley of the shadow of death,
  I shall fear no evil, for you are with me:
  your rod and your staff give me comfort.
You have set a table before me
  in the sight of my enemies.
You have anointed my head with oil,
  and my cup overflows.
Truly goodness and kindness will follow me
  all the days of my life.
For long years I shall live
  in the house of the Lord.
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.
Fresh and green are the pastures where the Lord gives me repose, alleluia.

Psalmus 75:2-7
Gratiarum actio pro victoria
Videbunt Filium hominis venientem in nubibus cæli” (Mt 24, 30).
In Israel magnum nomen Dómini, allelúia.
2Notus in Iudǽa Deus,*
  in Israel magnum nomen eius.
3Et est in Salem tabernáculum eius,*
  et habitátio eius in Sion.
4Ibi confrégit coruscatiónes arcus,*
  scutum, gládium et bellum.
5Illúminans tu, Mirábilis,*
  a móntibus direptiónis.
6Spoliáti sunt poténtes corde,†
  dormiérunt somnum suum,*
  et non invenérunt omnes viri fortes manus suas.
7Ab increpatióne tua, Deus Iacob,*
  dormitavérunt auríga et equus.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
In Israel magnum nomen Dómini, allelúia.
Psalm 75 (76)
Thanksgiving after victory
In Israel the name of the Lord is great, alleluia.
God’s name is known in Judah,
  in Israel his name is great.
His dwelling-place is in Salem,
  in Zion his habitation.
He has destroyed gleaming bows,
  shields, swords, and whole armies.
God of Wonders, your glory shines
  from the mountains of spoil.
The proud and powerful are despoiled
  and now they sleep their sleep –
  all men have lost their strength.
God of Jacob, at the sound of your rebuke
  chariot and horse fall stunned.
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.
In Israel the name of the Lord is great, alleluia.

Psalmus 75:8-13
Terra trémuit et quiévit, cum exsúrgeret in iudícium Deus, allelúia.
8Tu terríbilis es, et quis resístet tibi?*
  Ex tunc ira tua.
9De cælo audítum fecísti iudícium;*
  terra trémuit et quiévit,
10cum exsúrgeret in iudícium Deus,*
  ut salvos fáceret omnes mansuétos terræ.
11Quóniam furor hóminis confitébitur tibi,*
  et relíquiæ furóris diem festum agent tibi.
12Vovéte et réddite Dómino Deo vestro;*
  omnes in circúitu eius áfferant múnera Terríbili,
13ei, qui aufert spíritum príncipum,*
  terríbili apud reges terræ.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Terra trémuit et quiévit, cum exsúrgeret in iudícium Deus, allelúia.
Psalm 75 (76)
The earth in terror was still when the Lord arose to judge, alleluia.
You bring terror and no-one will stand up to you
  when your anger is roused.
From the heavens you have made your judgement known:
  the earth trembled and lay still
when God rose up to give judgement
  to save all the humble of the world.
For the rage of man will proclaim your greatness
  and the remnants of that rage will make a festival for you.
Make vows to the Lord and fulfil them.
  Let all around bring gifts to the God of Terror,
to him who takes away the breath of princes
  and brings terror to the kings of the earth.
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 earth in terror was still when the Lord arose to judge, alleluia.

COMPLEMENTARY PSALMS


Psalmus 125:1-6
Gaudium et spes in Deo
Sicuti socii passionum estis, sic eritis et consolationis” (2 Cor 1, 7).
Magnificávit Dóminus fácere nobíscum: facti sumus lætántes.
1In converténdo Dóminus captivitátem Sion,*
  facti sumus quasi somniántes.
2Tunc replétum est gáudio os nostrum,*
  et lingua nostra exsultatióne.
Tunc dicébant inter gentes:*
  «Magnificávit Dóminus fácere cum eis».
5Magnificávit Dóminus fácere nobíscum;*
  facti sumus lætántes.
4Convérte, Dómine, captivitátem nostram,*
  sicut torréntes in austro.
5Qui séminant in lácrimis,*
  in exsultatióne metent.
6Eúntes ibant et flebant*
  semen spargéndum portántes;
veniéntes autem vénient in exsultatióne*
  portántes manípulos suos.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Magnificávit Dóminus fácere nobíscum: facti sumus lætántes.
Psalm 125 (126)
Gladness and hope in the Lord
What marvels the Lord worked for us: indeed we are glad.
When the Lord gave Zion back her captives, we became like dreamers.
Our mouths were filled with gladness and our voices cried in exultation.
Among the Gentiles they were saying,
  “By his deeds the Lord has shown himself great.”
The Lord’s deeds showed forth his greatness,
  and filled us with rejoicing.
Give us back our captives, O Lord,
  as you renew the dry streams in the desolate South.
Those who sow in tears will rejoice at the harvest.
They wept as they went, went with seed for the sowing;
but with joy they will come, come bearing the sheaves.
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.
What marvels the Lord worked for us: indeed we are glad.

Psalmus 126:1-5
Vanus labor sine Domino
Dei ædificatio estis” (1 Cor 3, 9).
Dóminus ædíficet nobis domum et custódiat civitátem.
1Nisi Dóminus ædificáverit domum,*
  in vanum labórant, qui ædíficant eam.
Nisi Dóminus custodíerit civitátem,*
  frustra vígilat, qui custódit eam.
2Vanum est vobis ante lucem súrgere et sero quiéscere,†
  qui manducátis panem labóris,*
  quia dabit diléctis suis somnum.
3Ecce heréditas Dómini fílii,*
  merces fructus ventris.
4Sicut sagíttæ in manu poténtis,*
  ita fílii iuventútis.
5Beátus vir, qui implévit pháretram suam ex ipsis:*
  non confundétur, cum loquétur inimícis suis in porta.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Dóminus ædíficet nobis domum et custódiat civitátem.
Psalm 126 (127)
Without the Lord, we labour in vain
The Lord will build the house for us; he will watch over our city.
If the Lord does not build the house,
  its builders labour in vain.
If the Lord does not watch over a city,
  its watchmen guard it in vain.
It is vain for you to rise before the dawn
  and go late to your rest,
  eating the bread of toil –
  to those he loves, the Lord gives sleep.
The Lord bestows sons as an heirloom,
  the fruit of the womb as a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior –
  so are the sons of one’s youth.
Happy the man who fills his quiver thus:
  when he disputes with his enemies at the gate,
  he will not be the loser.
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 will build the house for us; he will watch over our city.

Psalmus 127:1-5
Pax domestica in Domino
«Benedicat te Dominus ex Sion», id est: ex Ecclesia sua” (Arnobius).
Beátus omnis qui timet Dóminum. †
1Beátus omnis, qui timet Dóminum,*
  qui ámbulat in viis eius.
2Labóres mánuum tuárum manducábis,*
  beátus es, et bene tibi erit.
3Uxor tua sicut vitis fructífera*
  in latéribus domus tuæ;
fílii tui sicut novéllæ olivárum*
  in circúitu mensæ tuæ.
4Ecce sic benedicétur homo,*
  qui timet Dóminum.
5Benedícat tibi Dóminus ex Sion,*
  et vídeas bona Ierúsalem ómnibus diébus vitæ tuæ;
6et vídeas fílios filiórum tuórum.*
  Pax super Israel!
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Beátus omnis qui timet Dóminum. †
Psalm 127 (128)
Peaceful life in the Lord
O blessed are those who fear the Lord.
Blessed are all who fear the Lord
  and walk in his ways.
The food you have worked for, you will eat:
  God’s blessing will bring you good things.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
  on the side of your house.
Your children will be like olive shoots,
  seated round your table.
See, this is how the man is blessed
  who fears the Lord.
May the Lord bless you from Zion:
  may you see the wealth of Jerusalem
  all the days of your life.
May you see your children’s children.
  Peace be on Israel.
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.
O blessed are those who fear the Lord.
