The Circumcision of Our Lord: First Vespers Pt. II


The grace of God our Saviour hath appeared to all men, instructing us, that denying ungodliness and worldly desires, we should live soberly, and justly, and godly, in this world. (Titus II)..........

"Then is sung the hymn of Christmas Day: 'Jesu, Redemptor omnium'

V. The Word was made flesh, alleluia
R. And dwelt among us, alleluia

Magnificat Antiphon: By reason of the exceeding charity wherewith God loved us, he sent us his Son in the likeness of sincful flesh.

Let us pray:
O God, who by the fruitful Virginity of the Blessed Mary hast given to mankind the rewards of eternal salvation; grant, we beseech thee, that we may experience her intercession, by whom we received the Author of Life, our Lord Jesus Christ, thy Son. Who liveth &c."
