Vox dilecti mei pulsantis, en dilectus meus loquitur mihi: aperi mihi, soror mea, expoliavi me tunica mea, quomodo induar illam? Lavi pedes meos, quomodo inquinabo illos? Surge, propera, amica mea; surrexi, ut aperirem dilecto meo. Pessulum ostii mei aperui dilecto meo; at ille declinaverat, atque transierat. (Song of Songs 2:10; 5:2–3, 5–6)

The voice of my beloved knocking: behold, my beloved speaketh to me: open to me, my sister; I have put off my garment, how shall I put it on? I have washed my feet, how shall I defile them? Arise, make haste, my love. I arose up to open to my beloved; I opened the bolt of my door to my beloved; but he had turned aside, and was gone.

Ave vera caro Christi,
qui in cruce pependisti,
cuius Patri tu dixisti:
Ut quid me dereliquisti?
Salve, sancta caro Dei,
per te salvi fiunt rei,
et tuum servum redemisti,
dum in cruce pependisti.
O Jesu, O pie,
O dulcis fili Mariæ,
miserere nobis. Amen.

Hail, true flesh of Christ,
who hung on the Cross,
who cried to thy Father:
why hast thou forsaken me?
Hail, sacred flesh of God;
through thee the accused are saved
and thou redeemest thy servant,
while thou hanged on the Cross.
O Jesus, O Holy one,
O sweet son of Mary,
have mercy on us. Amen.

Quem dicunt homines esse filium hominis?
dixit Jesus discipulis suis.
Respondens Petrus dixit:
Tu es Christus, Filius Dei vivi.
Et ego dico tibi: Quia tu es Petrus,
et super hanc petram aedificabo ecclesiam meam.
(Matthew 16:13, 16; Sts. Peter and Paul, Matins Responsory)


Whom do men say the Son of Man is? Jesus said to his disciples. Peter answering said: thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And I say unto thee: that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church.

O admirabile commercium! Creator generis humani de Virgine nasci dignatus est; et procedens homo sine semine, largitus est nobis suam deitatem. Germinavit radix Jesse, orta est stella ex Jacob; Virgo peperit nobis Salvatorem; te laudamus, Deus noster. (Circumcision, Purification, Office antiphons)

O wondrous exchange! The Creator of the human race deigned to be born of a Virgin, and born as a man without man's aid, bestowed upon us his divinity. The root of Jesse has blossomed; a star has risen out of Jacob; the Virgin has borne us the Savior; we praise thee, O our God.

Salve, Salvator Mundi, Rex atque Creator, Qui Deus es et homo, Natus de Virgine alvo. Te, Deus, exoro, Simplex et pronus adoro, Ut mihi condones Et caeli gaudia dones, Nec non defunctis, Vivis quoque cunctis.

Adoramus te, Christi, Et benedicimus tibi. Quia per sanctam Crucem tuam Redemisti mundum. O sanguis Christi, Qui fusus amore fuisti Humani generis, Precor, nos, auxiliaris, Dele peccata, Da nobis regna beata. (Milanese Substitute Motets for Sanctus and Elevation)

Hail, Savior of the world, King and Creator, Who art God and Man, Born of the Virgin's womb. Thee, God, I beseech, Humble and abject, I adore, That thou pardon me And grant heavenly joy, Also to the departed, And to all the living.

We adore thee, O Christ, And we bless thee, Because by thy holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world. O blood of Christ, Which was poured out for love Of the human race, I pray, help us, Blot out sins, Give us blessed realms.

English.png English translation

Blessed art thou, Queen of Heaven,
and Lady of the whole world,
and healing for the sick:

Thou art called the bright star of the sea,
who bearest the sun of righteousness,
through whom thou art illuminated.

That thou might become
the mother of God,
and he thy brother
whose daughter thou wert,

God the Father sactified thee,
kept thee holy,
and, sending, saluted thee thus:
"Hail, full of grace."

Though that "Ave" offered
and thy gracious response,
the Word, by whom all things were saved,
became incarnate though thee.

Now, O Mother, pray thy Son
that he might take away our sin
and grant us the kingdom prepared
in our heavenly homeland.
