9 A,M. - Terce or Mid Morning Prayer

V. O Lady, make speed to befriend me. 
R. From the hands of the enemy mightily defend me. 
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. 
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be; world without end.—Amen.         



Hail, Solomon's throne, 
Pure ark of the law, 
Fair Rainbow, and Bush, 
Which the Patriarch saw.

Hail, Gideon's Fleece, 
Hail, blossoming Rod, 
Samson's sweet honeycomb, 
Portal of God.

Well fitting it was, 
That a Son so divine 
Should preserve from all touch 
Of original sin,

Nor suffer by smallest 
Defect to be stain'd, 
That Mother, whom He 
For Himself had ordain'd.Amen.

V. I dwell in the highest. 
R. And my throne is on the pillar of the clouds. 
V. O Lady hear my prayer. 
R. And let my cry come unto thee.
Let Us Pray 

Holy Mary, Queen of heaven, Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, and Mistress of the world, who forsakest no one, and despisest no one; look upon me, O Lady, with an eye of pity, and entreat for me, of thy be-loved Son, the forgiveness of all my sins; that as I now celebrate with devout affection thy holy and Immaculate Conception, so, hereafter, I may receive the prize of eternal blessedness, by the grace of Him whom thou, in virginity, didst bring forth, Jesus Christ our Lord, Who with the Father and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth, in perfect Trinity, God, world without end.—Amen.  

V. O Lady, hear my prayer. 
R. And let my cry come unto thee. 
V. Let us bless the Lord. 
R. Thanks be to God. 
V. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. 
R. Amen.
