Incline Thy ear, O Lord, and hear me:
for I am needy and poor.
Preserve my soul, for I am holy:
save Thy servant, O my God, that trusteth in Thee.
Have mercy on me, O Lord,
for I have cried to Thee all the day.
Give joy to the soul
of Thy servant,
for to Thee, O Lord, I have lifted up my soul.
For Thou, O Lord, art sweet and mild:
and plenteous in mercy to all that call upon Thee.
Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer:
and attend to the voice of my petition.
I have called upon Thee in the day of my trouble:
because Thou hast heard me.
There is none
among the gods like unto Thee, O Lord:
and there is none
according to Thy works.
All the nations Thou hast made
shall come and adore before Thee, O Lord:
and they shall glorify Thy name.
For Thou art great and dost wonderful things:
Thou art God
Conduct me, O Lord, in Thy way, and I will
walk in Thy truth:
let my heart rejoice that it may fear Thy name.
praise Thee, O Lord
with my whole heart,
and I will
glorify Thy name for ever:
For Thy mercy is great towards me:
and Thou hast delivered my soul
out of the lower hell.
O God, the wicked are risen up against me,
and the assembly of the mighty have sought my soul:
and they have not set Thee before their eyes.
And Thou, O Lord, art a God
and merciful, patient, and of much mercy, and true.
O look upon me, and have mercy on me:
give Thy command to Thy servant,
and save the son of Thy handmaid.
Show me a token for good:
that they who hate me may see,
and be confounded,
because Thou, O Lord,
hast helped me and hast comforted me.
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.

Come, virgins chaste; pure brides, draw near:
Let Earth exult and Heaven hear
The Hymn that grateful accents raise,
Our song of joy in Rita's praise.
By fast her sinless frame is weak;
Her livid flesh the scourges streak.
In pity for her Savior's woes,
Her days and even nights are closed. ... continue reading
