Dom Gueranger: Second Sunday after Epiphany: Vespers

The psalmody at Vespers is the same as at First Vespers of the Epiphany, eccept for the Antiphons and the fifth psalm as shown below.

ANT. Whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord, shall be saved.
Psalm 'Dixit Dominus'

ANT. Holy and terrible is his Name: the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
Psalm 'Confitebor tibi'

ANT. But I will rejoice in the Lord, and I will joy in God my Jesus.
Psalm 'Beatus vir'

ANT. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, the Name of the Lord is worthy of praise.
Psalm 'Laudate pueri'

ANT. I will sacrifice the sacrifice or praise, and I will call upon the Name of the Lord
Psalm 115 'Credidi, propter quod locutus sum.'

Brethren, Christ humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross; for which cause, God also hath exalted him, and hath given him a Name, which is above all names: that in the Name of Jesus every knee should bow.

Magnificat Antiphon:
Thou shalt call his Name Jesus; for he shall save his people from their sins. Alleluia.

Let us pray:
O God, who didst appoint thy Only Begotten Son the Saviour of Mankind, and commanded that his Name should be called Jesus: mercifully grant, that we who venerate his holy Name on earth, may also enjoy his sight in heaven. Through the same, &c.

Commemmoration of the 2nd Sunday after the Epiphany:
ANT. The wine failing, Jesus commanded that the waterpots should be filled with water, and it was changed into wine. Alleluia.
v. Let my prayer, O Lord, be directed,
r. As incense in they sight.

Let us pray
O Almighty and Eternal God, supreme Ruler both of heaven and earth, mercifully give ear to the prayers of thy people, and grant us peace in our time. Through, &c.
