2 Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips : and from a deceitful tongue.

3 What reward shall be given or done unto thee, thou false tongue : even mighty and sharp arrows, with hot burning coals.

4 Woe is me, that I am constrained to dwell with Mesech : and to have my habitation among the tents of Kedar.

5 My soul hath long dwelt among them : that are enemies unto peace.

6 I labour for peace, but when I speak unto them thereof : they make them ready to battle.

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. Amen.

Antiphon. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth : blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.

W. Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto thee.

Let us pray
LORD Jesu Christ, whose whole life

was nothing but humility and meekness, who only art our very righteousness; Grant us to serve and honour thee with humble and meek heart, and in all our life and conversation to desire to be occupied in the works of righteousness; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

The Sixth Hour.
MID-DAY, OR EARLIER.

O God, make speed to save us.

O Lord, make haste to help us. 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. Amen.

HYMN.
In the Lord's atoning grief
Be our rest and sweet relief;
Store we deep in heart's recess
All the shame and bitterness.
Thorns, and cross, and nails, and lance,
Wounds our treasure that enhance,
Vinegar, and gall, and reed,
And the pang his soul that freed.
Crucified, we thee adore,
Thee with all our hearts implore,
Us with saintly bands unite
In the realms of Heavenly light.
Christ, by coward hands betrayed,
Christ for us a captive made,
Christ, upon the bitter tree

Slain for man, be praise to thee.
Antiphon. Blessed are the merciful.

PSALM CXXIII. Ad te levavi oculos meos. ITNTO thee lift I up mine eyes : 0 thou

that dwellest in the heavens. 2 Behold, even as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress : even so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until he have mercy upon us.

3 Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us ; for we are utterly despised.

4 Our soul is filled with the scornful reproof of the wealthy : and with the despitefulness of the proud.

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. Amen.

Antiphon. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy : blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

V. Lord, hear my prayer.
B. And let my cry come unto thee.

Let us pray.
LORD Jesu Christ, whose property is

ever to be merciful, who art alway pure and clean without spot of sin: Grant us the grace to follow thee in mercifulness towards our neighbours, and always to bear a pure heart and a clear conscience toward thee, that we may after this life see thee in thy everlasting glory; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen..

The Ninth Hour.

3 P.M., OR EARLIER.

O God, make speed to save us.

O Lord, make haste to help us. 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. Amen.

Hymn. Rerum Deus tenax vigor.
O God, of all the strength and power,
Who dost unmoved each passing hour
Through all its changes guide the day,
From early morn to evening ray.
Brighten life's eventide with light,
That ne'er shall set in gloom of night;
Till we a holy death attain,
And everlasting glory gain.
Almighty Father, hear our cry,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord most high,
Who with the Holy Ghost and thee

Doth live and reign eternally. Amen.
Antiphon. Blessed are the peacemakers.

PSALM XV. Domine, quis habitabit.
ORD, who shall dwell in thy tabernacle :

or who shall rest upon thy holy hill.

2 Even he that leadeth an uncorrupt life : and doeth the thing that is right, and speaketh the truth from his heart.

3 He that hath used no deceit in his tongue, nor done evil to his neighbour : and hath not slandered his neighbour.

4 He that setteth not by himself, but is lowly in his own eyes : and maketh much of them that fear the Lord.

5 He that sweareth unto his neighbour, and disappointeth him not : though it were to his own hindrance.

6 He that hath not given his money upon usury : nor taken reward against the innocent.

7 Whoso doeth these things : shall never fall.

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. Amen.

Antiphon. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God : blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.

P. Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto thee.

Let us pray.
LORD Jesu Christ, Who madest peace

between God the Father and us miserable sinners, and notwithstanding didst
