OPEN my mouth, O Lord, that I may bless thy holy name. Cleanse my heart from all vain, evil and wandering thoughts; enlighten my understanding, enkindle my affections, that I may worthily recite this Office with attention and devotion, and may worthily be
heard before the presence of thy Divine Majesty. Through Christ our Lord.
O Lord, in union with that Divine Intention wherewith thou didst thyself praise God, while as thou wast on earth, I offer these Hours (or this Hour) unto thee.
PATER noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum. Advéniat regnum tuum. Fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidiánum da nobis hódie.
Et dimítte nobis débita nostra, sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris. Et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem: sed líbera nos a malo. Amen.
OUR Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thykingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
