Ribbon Placement: Liturgy of the Hours Vol. I: Ordinary: 649 Proper of Saints: 1272 Psalms from the Common of Martyrs, 1376 Christian Prayer: Does not contain Office of Readings. Office of Readings for the Feast of the Holy Innocents, Martyrs God, come to my assistance. – Lord, make haste to help me. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: – as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia. HYMN Lullay, Thou little tiny Child, By, by, lully, lullay. Lullay, Thou little tiny Child. By, by, lully, lullay. O sisters, too, how may we do, For to preserve this day; This poor Youngling for whom we sing, By, by, lully, lullay. Herod the King, in his raging, Charged he hath this day; His men of might, in his own sight, All children young, to slay. Then woe is me, poor Child, for Thee, And ever mourn and say; For Thy parting, nor say nor sing, By, by, lully, lullay. “Coventry Carol” by St. Paul’s Cathedral Choir; “Coventry Carol” text attributed to Robert Croo, 1534; Performance: St. Paul’s Cathedral Choir PSALMODY Ant. 1 Lord, these little ones praise you and skip with joy like lambs, for you have set them free. Psalm 2 The Messiah, king and conqueror The rulers of the earth joined forces to overthrow Jesus, your anointed Son (Acts 4:27). Why this tumult among nations, among peoples this useless murmuring? They arise, the kings of the earth, princes plot against the Lord and his Anointed. “Come let us break their fetters, come, let us cast off their yoke.” He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord is laughing them to scorn. Then he will speak in his anger, his rage will strike them with terror. “It is I who have set up my king on Zion, my holy mountain.” I will announce the decree of the Lord: The Lord said to me: “You are my Son. It is I who have begotten you this day. Ask and I shall bequeath you the nations, put the ends of the earth in your possession. With a rod of iron you will break them, shatter them like a potter’s jar.” Now, O kings, understand, take warning, rulers of the earth; serve the Lord with awe and trembling, pay him your homage lest he be angry and you perish; for suddenly his anger will blaze. Blessed are they who put their trust in God. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: – as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Ant. Lord, these little ones praise you and skip with joy like lambs, for you have set them free. Ant. 2 These are the first of mankind to be won for God and the Lamb; innocent, they stand before the throne of God. Psalm 33 Song of praise for God’s continual care Through the Word all things were made ( John 1:3). I Ring out your joy to the Lord, O you just; for praise is fitting for loyal hearts. Give thanks to the Lord upon the harp, with a ten-stringed lute sing him songs. O sing him a song that is new, play loudly, with all your skill. For the word of the Lord is faithful and all his works to be trusted. The Lord loves justice and right and fills the earth with his love. By his word the heavens were made, by the breath of his mouth all the stars. He collects the waves of the ocean; he stores up the depths of the sea. Let all the earth fear the Lord, all who live in the world revere him. He spoke; and it came to be. He commanded; it sprang into being. He frustrates the designs of the nations, he defeats the plans of the peoples. His own designs shall stand for ever, the plans of his heart from age to age. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: – as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Ant. These are the first of mankind to be won for God and the Lamb; innocent, they stand before the throne of God. Ant. 3 Joy and everlasting gladness will be their lot. They will never again know sorrow and pain. II They are happy, whose God is the Lord, the people he ha[...]
