 The Office of the Passion - 156 

[Part Five: The Time of the Lord’s Birth
until the Octave of the Epiphany]

Vespers of the Lord’s Birth
Antiphon: Holy Virgin Mary
Psalm [XV]

1Exult in God our help!* Ps 81:2 [Vulgate, Ps 80:2]
Shout to the Lord God living and true with cries of gladness! Ps 47:2 [Vulgate, Ps 46:2]
2Because the Lord, the Most High,*
the Awesome, is the Great King over all the earth. Ps 47:3 [Vulgate, Ps 46:3]
3Because the Most Holy Father of heaven, our King before all ages,+ Ps 74:12 [Vulgate, Ps 73:12]
sent His Beloved Son from on high*
and He was born of the Blessed Virgin Holy Mary.
4He called to me: You are my Father* Ps 89:27 [Vulgate, Ps 88:27]
and I will place Him, my firstborn, as the Highest,+
above all the kings of the earth. Ps 89:28 [Vulgate, Ps 88:28]
5On that day the Lord sent His mercy*
and at night His song. Ps 42:9 [Vulgate, Ps 41:9]
6This is the day the Lord has made*
let us rejoice and be glad in it. Ps 118:24 [Vulgate, Ps 117:24]
7For the Most Holy Child has been given to us+
and has been born for us on the way* Is 9:6
and placed in a manger Lk 2:7
because he did not have a place in the inn.
8Glory to the Lord God in the highest*
and peace on earth to those of good will. Lk 2:14
9Let the heavens rejoice and the earth exult,+
let the sea and its fullness resound,*
let the fields and all that is in them be joyful. Ps 96:11 [Vulgate, Ps 95:11] Ps 96:12 [Vulgate, Ps 95:12]
10Sing a new song to the Lord,*
sing to the Lord all the earth. Ps 96:1 [Vulgate, Ps 95:1]
11Because the Lord is great and worthy of praise*
He is awesome beyond all gods. Ps 96:4 [Vulgate, Ps 95:4]
12Give to the Lord, you families of nations,+
give to the Lord glory and praise,*
give to the Lord the glory due His name. Ps 96:7 [Vulgate, Ps 95:7] Ps 96:8 [Vulgate, Ps 95:8]

[Pars V: Pro tempore Nativitatis Domini
usque ad octavam Epiphaniae]

Ad Vesperam in Nativitate Domini
Antiphona: Sancta Maria Virgo.
Psalmus [XV]

1Exsultate Deo adiutori nostro*
iubilate Domino Deo vivo et vero in voce exsultationis.
2Quoniam Dominus excelsus*
terribilis Rex magnus super omnem terram.
3Quia sanctissimus pater de caelo, Rex noster ante saecula,
misit dilectum Filium suum e de alto*
et natus fuit de beata virgine sancta Maria.
4Ipse invocavit me: Pater meus es tu*
et ego primogenitum ponam illum,
excelsum prae regibus terrae.
5In illa die mandavit Dominus misericordiam suam*
et nocte canticum eius.
6Haec est dies, quam fecit Dominus*
exsultemus et laetemur in ea.
7Quia sanctissimus puer dilectus datus est nobis
et natus fuit pro nobis in via
et positus in praesepio
quia non habebat locum in diversorio.
8Gloria in altissimis Domino Deo*
et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.
9Laetentur caeli et exsultet terra,
commoveatur mare et plenitudo eius*
gaudebunt campi et omnia, quae, in eis sunt.
10Cantate ei canticum novum*
cantate Domino omnis terra.
11Quoniam magnus Dominus et laudabilis nimis*
terribilis est super omnes deos.
12Afferte Domino patriae gentium,
afferte Domino gloriam et honorem*
afferte Domino gloriam, nomini eius.
