Morning Hymn and Alleluia)


Psalm 110:

1 Dixit Dominus Domino meo sede a dextris meis                The Lord says to my Lord:   “Sit at my right hand,
donec ponam inimicos tuos scabellum pedum tuorum       while I make your enemies your footstool.”

5 Dominus a dextris tuis                                                              At your right hand is the Lord,
confregit in die irae suae reges                                                  who crushes kings on the day of his wrath.

7 De torrente in via bibet                                                            Who drinks from the brook by the wayside
propterea exaltabit caput                                                            and thus holds high his head.

The doxology:

Gloria Patri et Filio                                     Glory be to the Father and to the Son
et Spiritui Sancto                                        and to the Holy Spirit
sicut erat in principio                                 as it was in the beginning
et nunc et semper                                      is now and ever shall be
et in saecula saeculorum. Amen              world without end. Amen


On Broadway, they sang only the first verse of the psalm, then went to the doxology.
