Morning Prayer — Passion Sunday — Lent 5

Part 1. From the Divine Office


    O Lord, open my lips.
And my mouth shall proclaim Your praise.

    O God, come to my assistance, O Lord, make haste to help me.

    Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

    As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.

    Praise be to you, Lord, King of eternal glory.


Lenten Acclamations For Reflection:—
Acknowledging our sinfulness, our need of repentance, and expressing our strong desire to be restored fully to God's household.

During Lent these morning acclamations are taken from the Mass of the day. Any one of them can be recited as an antiphon before and after the psalm, or be simply the subject of a meditation.

  • Do me justice, O God, and fight my fight against a faithless people; from the deceitful and impious man rescue me. For You are my God and My strength. Send forth Your light and Your fidelity; they shall lead me on and bring me to Your holy mountain, to Your dwelling place.
  • Rescue me from my enemies, O Lord; teach me to do Your will. O Lord, my deliverer from the angry nations, truly above my adversaries You exalt me and from the violent man You have rescued me.
  • I praise You, O Lord, with all my heart; be good to Your servant, that I may live and keep Your words. O Lord, give me life according to Your word.
