Ant. Bonus est Dominus sperantibus in eum,
animae quaerenti illum. Lam 3.25
Vv. In te, Domine, speravi,
non confundar in aeternum:
in justitia tua libera me.
Inclina ad me aurem tuam:
acceleras ut eruas me. Ps. 30.1-2.

Ant. The Lord is good to those who hope in Him,
to the soul that seeks him.
Vv. In Thee, O Lord, have I hoped,
let me never be confounded:
deliver me in Thy justice.
Bow down thy ear to me:
make haste to deliver me.
