Matin Responsory

I look from afar.
And lo, I see the power of God coming, and a cloud covering the whole Earth.
Go ye out to meet Him and say:
Tell us, art Thou He that should come to reign over Thy people Israel?

High and low, rich and poor, one with another.
Go ye out to meet Him and say:
Hear, O thou Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep,
Tell us, art Thou He that should come?

Stir up thy strength, O Lord, and come
To reign over Thy people Israel.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost

Vesper Responsory

Judah and Jerusalem, fear not, nor be dismayed.
Tomorrow go ye forth, and the Lord, He will be with you.

Stand ye still, and ye shall see the salvation of the Lord.
Tomorrow go ye forth, and the Lord, Hw will be with you.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
Tomorrow go ye forth, and the Lord, he will be with you.
