(Please be seated) Psalmus IV Cum invocarem, exaudivit me Deus iustitiae meae: in tribulatione dilatasti mihi. Miserere mei, et exaudi orationem meam. Filii hominum, usquequo gravi corde? Ut quid diligitis vanitatem, et quaeritis mendacium? Et scitote, quoniam mirificavit Dominus sanctum suum: Dominus exaudiet me, cum clamavero ad eum. Irascimini, et nolite peccare: + quis dicitis in cordibus vestris, in cubilibus vestris compungimini. Sacrificate sacrificium iustitiae, + et sperate in Domino. Multi dicunt: Quis ostendit nobis bona? Signatum est super nos lumen vultus tui, Domine: dedisti laetitiam in corde meo. A fructu frumenti, vini et olei sui multiplicati sunt. In pace in idipsum dormiam, et requiescam; Quoniam tu, Domine, singulariter in spe constituisti me. Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto; Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen. Psalmus XC Qui habitat in adiutorio Altissimi, in protectione Dei caeli commorabitur. Dicet Domino: Susceptor meus es tu, et refugium meum: Deus meus sperabo in eum. Quoniam ipse liberavit me de laqueo venantium, et a verbo aspero. Scapulis suis obumbrabit tibi: et sub pennis eius sperabis. Scuto circumdabit te veritas eius: non timebis a timore nocturno, A sagitta volante in die, + a negotio perambulante in tenebris: ab incursu, et daemonio meridiano. Cadent a latere tuo mille, + et decem milia a dextris tuis: ad te autem non appropinquabit. Verumtamen oculis tuis considerabis: et retributionem peccatorum videbis. Quoniam tu es, Domine, spes mea: Altissimum posuisti refugium tuum.

(Please be seated) Psalm 4 When I cried for help, the God of my justice heard me; when I was straightened Thou didst set me at large. Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer. Ye sons of men, how long will you be hard of heart? Why love vanities and have recourse to lying? Know ye, that the Lord hath dealt wondrously with His holy one: The Lord will hear me when I cry unto Him. When roused to anger, sin not: what you scheme in your hearts, deplore upon your beds. Offer a righteous sacrifice and put your trust in the Lord. Many there are that say: Who will show us good things? Let the light of Thy countenance shine upon us, O Lord! Thou hast given gladness to my heart, Greater than the joy in rich harvests of corn and wine and oil. In peace, then, shall I sleep and rest; For Thou, O Lord! Makest me rest secure. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Psalm 90 He that dwelleth in the shelter of the Most High, and abideth in the shadow of the Almighty, Shall say to the Lord: Thou art my protector and my refuge! My God, in Whom I put my trust. For He will rescue thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the sharp word. With His pinions will He shelter thee; and under His wings thou shalt be secure. Like a shield His truth shall guard thee; thou shalt not fear the terrors of the night, Nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the plague that prowls in the dark, nor the noonday attack of the demon. A thousand shall fall at thy side and ten thousand at thy right hand, yet no evil shall come to thee. But with thine eyes thou shalt see and behold the punishment of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord thy hope, and the Most High thy refuge,

Non accedet ad te malum: et flagellum non appropinquabit tabernaculo tuo. Quoniam Angelis suis mandavit de te: ut custodiant te in omnibus viis tuis. In manibus portabunt te: ne forte offendas ad labidem pedem tuum. Super aspidem et basiliscum ambulabis: et conculcabis leonem et draconem. Quoniam in me speravit, liberabo eum: protegam eum, quoniam cognovit nomen meum. Clamabit ad me, et ego exaudiam eum: + cum ipso sum in tribulatione: eripiam eum et glorificabo eum. Longitudine dierum replebo eum: et ostendam illi salutare meum. Gloria Patri et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto; Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen. Psalmus CXXIII Ecce nunc benedicite Dominum, omnes servi Domini: Qui statis in domo Domini, in atriis domus Dei nostri. In noctibus extollite manus vestras in sancta, et benedicite Dominum. Benedicat te Dominus ex Sion, qui fecit caelum et terram. Gloria Patri et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto; Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

No evil shall befall thee nor any plague come near thy dwelling. He hath given His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways; They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the asp and the adder, the lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under foot. Because he hath put his trust in Me, I will deliver him; I will protect him because he hath known my Name. He will call upon Me and I will hear him; I will be with him in need, I will rescue him and bring him honor. With length of days I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Psalm 133 Come now, bless the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord. Who stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God; At night lift up your hands to the sanctuary, and bless the Lord. May the Lord bless thee from Sion, He Who hath made heaven and earth! Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

HYMNUS
Te lucis ante terminum, Rerum Creator, poscimus, Ut solita clementia Sis praesul ad custodiam. Procul recedant somnia, Et noctium phantasmata; Hostemque nostrum comprime, Ne plluantur corpora. Praesta, Peter omnipotens, Per Iesum Christum Dominum, Qui tecum in perpetuum Regnat cum Sancto Spiritu. Amen.

HYMN
To Thee, before the close of day, Creator of the world, we pray That with Thy wonted favor, Thou Wouldst be our Guard and Keeper now. From evil dreams defend our eyes. From nightly fears and fantasies; Tread under foot our ghostly foe That no pollution we may know. O Father, that we ask be done Through Jesus Christ, Thine only Son, Who, with the Holy Ghost and Thee, Doth live and reign eternally. Amen.
