PSALM CXXIII. Ad te levavi oculos meos.

NTO thee lift I up mine eyes: O thou that dwellest in the heavens.

UNT

2 Behold, even as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress even so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until he have mercy upon us. 3 Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us; for we are utterly despised. 4 Our soul is filled with the scornful reproof of the wealthy and with the despitefulness of the proud.

:

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.

Antiphon. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

HYMN. Rerum Deus tenax vigor.
O God, of all the strength and power,
Who dost unmoved each passing hour
Through all its changes guide the day,
From early morn to evening ray.

Brighten life's eventide with light,
That ne'er shall set in gloom of night;
Till we a holy death attain,

And everlasting glory gain.

Almighty Father, hear our cry,

Through Jesus Christ our Lord most high,
Who with the Holy Ghost and thee
Doth live and reign eternally. Amen.

Antiphon. Blessed are the peacemakers.
