Morning Hymn and Alleluia)
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.
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
