Psalms, Chapter 42

(1) As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. (2) My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? (3) My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God? (4) When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. (5) Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. (6) O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar. (7) Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. (8) Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life. (9) I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? (10) As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God? (11) Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

Hail Thou Star of Ocean

Hail thou star of ocean Portal of the sky Ever virgin Mother Of the Lord Most High O! by Gabriel's Ave Uttered long ago, Eva's name reversing, Established peace below Break the captives' fetters, Light on blindness pour, All our ills expelling, Every bliss implore Show thyself a Mother, Offer Him our sighs, Who for us incarnate Did not thee despise Virgin of all virgins To thy shelter take us, Gentlest of the gentle Chaste and gentle make us Still, as on we journey, Help our weak endeavor, Till with thee and Jesus We rejoice forever Through the highest heaven, To the almighty Three Father, Son, and Spirit, One same glory be. Amen.
