SEXT

P. Incline unto mine aid, O God.

F. O Lord, make haste to help me.

P. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost.

F. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be world without end. Amen. Praise be to thee, O Lord, King of eternal glory.

Hymn

Jesus was hanged upon the tree
And thirsted in his agony,
In hands and feet he deigned to bear
The cruel nails that held him there.

Honor and blessing ever be,
O Jesus crucified, to thee,
Who by thy death and bitter pain
Didst bring us exiles home again.

To Christ, the Lord of Majesty,
Betrayed and sold to set us free,
Who suffered on the cruel tree,
Be praise and honor endlessly. Amen.


Antiphon

P. They put over his head his cause written, Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.

Psalm CXV

I have believed, therefore have I spoken: * but I have been humbled exceedingly.

I said in my excess: * Every man is a liar.

What shall I render to the Lord: * for all the things that he hath rendered to me?

I will take the chalice of salvation: * and I will call upon the name of the Lord.

I will pay my vows to the Lord before all his people: * precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

O Lord, for I am thy servant: * I am thy servant, and the son of thy handmaid.

Thou hast broken my bonds: * I will sacrifice to thee the sacrifice of praise, and I will call upon the name of the Lord.

I will pay my vows to the Lord in the sight of all his people: * in the courts of the house of the Lord, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem.

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

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be world without end. Amen.

Antiphon

P. They put over his head his cause written, Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.

Little Chapter
(I Peter II, 23-24)

P. He delivered himself to him that judged him unjustly, who his own self bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live to justice; by whose stripes we were healed.

F. Thanks be to God.

P. He was offered because it was his own will.

F. And he himself bore our iniquities.

P. Lord, have mercy on us.

F. Christ, have mercy on us.

P. Lord, have mercy on us.

LET US PRAY

P. O Lord Jesus Christ, who, at the sixth hour of the day, didst mount upon the gibbet of the cross and, thirsting for our salvation, didst suffer gall and vinegar to be given thee to drink: we humbly beseech thee to enkindle thy fire in our hearts and make us to thirst for the chalice of thy Passion. Who livest and reignest world without end.

F. Amen.
