Psalm 147

Praise the Lord. O Jerusalem: praise thy God, O Sion.

For He hath strengthened the bars of thy gates: He hath blessed thy children within thee.

He hath made peace within thy borders: and filleth thee with the fat of corn.

He sendeth forth His speech upon the earth: His word runneth very swiftly.

He giveth snow like wool: He scattereth the mists like ashes.

He sendeth His ice like morsels: who shall abide the face of His frost?

He shall send forth His word, and shalt melt them: His wind shall blow and the waters shall run.

He declareth His word unto Jacob: His justice and judgements unto Israel.

He hath not done in like manner to every nation: His judgements He hath not made manifest to them.

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.

+ Our Father + Hail Mary +

 

The Chapter (Canticles 6. verse 9)

 

Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun:

Terrible as an army set in array? Alleluja. Alleluja.

Jesus, True God and True Man, have mercy upon us, most merciful Redeemer!

Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Lady of the Snows, be our Salvation!

May the souls of the Faithful Departed through the mercy of God +Rest in peace and rise in glory. Amen.
