ad te, Domine : Domine, exaudi vocem me


Fiant aures tuæ intendentes in vocem deprecationis meæ.

MY God, I love Thee; not because

I hope for heaven thereby,

Nor yet because who love Thee not
Are lost eternally.

Thou, Jesu, on the Cross didst me

With out-stretched arms embrace;

For me didst bear the nails, and spear,
And manifold disgrace,

And griefs and torments numberless,
And sweat of agony;

Yea, death itself; and all for me
Who was Thine enemy.

Then why, O Blessed Jesu Christ,
Should I not love Thee well?

Not for the sake of winning heaven,
Nor of escaping hell;

Not from the hope of gaining aught,
Not seeking a reward;

But as Thyself hast loved me,

O ever-loving Lord,

Ev'n so I love Thee, and will love,
And in Thy praise will sing;
Solely because Thou art my God,
And my most loving King. Amen.

And us with strength'ning grace befriend.

With all our powers Thy goodness praise;

Our own and every human frame.

O gracious Father, be it done,

Through Jesus Christ Thine only Son :
Who with the Holy Ghost and Thee
Doth live and reign eternally. Amen.

Ps. 118, Pts. 1 and 2. Beati immaculati.

LESSED are the undefiled in the way: who walk in the law of the Lord.


Blessed are they that search His testimonies : that seek Him with their whole heart.

For they that work iniquity : have not walked in His ways.

Thou hast commanded Thy commandments: to be kept most diligently.

O that my ways may be directed: to keep Thy justifications!

Then shall I not be confounded: when I shall look into all Thy commandments.

I will praise Thee with uprightness of heart: when I shall have learned the judgments of Thy justice.

I will keep Thy justifications: O forsake me not utterly.

Blessed art Thou, O Lord; teach me Thy justifi
