In years past some have found this Hymn card to be useful for the Liturgica Horarum.
O Jesus, who established these forty days of abstinence, who decreed this fast for the salvation of souls: Be present with thy Church, assist our penitence, by which, we humbly pray, that our sins may be washed away. By your grace forgive us our past sins and gently guard us against future sins.: that cleansed by these yearly acts of contrition we may be prepared to celebrate Easter with worthy joy. All things worship you, O merciful Trinity, and made new by your pardon we sing a new song. Amen.
O Kind Creator, hear our prayers mixed with tears poured out in this holy forty-day fast. O sustaining Searcher of hearts, you know the weakness of our strength; show to us who have turned back to you the remission of our sins. Indeed we have sinned much but spare those who confess their sins; to the praise of your name grant healing to the sick. Grant that our bodies may be outwardly broken through abstinence that a temperate mind may fast from falling headlong into sin. Grant, O Blessed Trinity, give, O simple Unity, to those who are yours the fruitful rewards of fasting. Amen.
Now, O Christ, Sun of righteousness, let the darkness of the mind be rent, that the light of the virtues may return, when you restore day to the world. You grant the acceptable time; give us a penitent heart, that your kindness may convert those whom your love has long endured. Grant us to bear some penitential severity that our sin, however great, be removed by your greater gift. The day comes, your day, through which all things flourish; we rejoice in that day through which we are returned to your grace. All things worship you, O merciful Trinity, and made new by your pardon we sing a new song. Amen.
Lauds dominicaliLet us all pray on bended knee and each of us cry out, imploring and weeping before the angry and avenging judge. With our evil ways e have offended your mercy, O God; O Redeemer pour out on us your pardon from above. Remember that we belong to you, although we are weak, you made us; we pray do not give the honor of your name to another. Forgive the evil we have done, increase the good we seek and by which we are able to please you here and always. Grant, O Blessed Trinity, give, O simple Unity, to those who are yours the fruitful rewards of fasting. Amen.
Faith in God, by which we live, in eternal hope by which we believe, through the grace of love we sing the glory of Christ. Who was lead at the third hour to the sacrifice of the passion, bearing the gibbet of the cross he returned the lost sheep. We humbly pray therefore that delivered by his redemption he would rescue from the world those he freed from the charge. We ask Christ and the Father and the Spirit of Christ and the Father, one power through all things, O Trinity, cherish those who pray to you. Amen.
The hour when Christ thirsted or submitted himself to the cross, when he grants those who sing this hour to be enriched with a thirst for righteousness. At the same time may they hunger that Christ might fill them with himself that wearied by sin they may desire virtue. May the gifts of the Holy Spirit so pour down upon those who praise you that the heat of flesh may grow cold and cold souls might become fervent. We ask Christ and the Father and the Spirit of Christ and the Father, one power through all things, O Trinity, cherish those who pray to you. Amen.
The holy number of the third of the three hours is reached and by the holy name of Jesus we beg the gift of pardon. Behold the confession of the thief merited the grace of Christ; may our praise and devotion purchase forgiveness. Now death perishes through the cross and after darkness light returns; the fear of sin is purged, the splendor of souls shines. We ask Christ and the Father and the Spirit of Christ and the Father, one power through all things, O Trinity, cherish those who pray to you. Amen
