First Sunday of Advent

Alma Redemptóris Mater, quæ pérvia cæli porta manes,
et stella maris, succúrre cadénti,
Súrgere qui curat, pópulo: tu quæ genuísti,
Natúra miránte, tuum sanctum Genitórem,
Virgo prius ac postérius, Gabriélis ab ore
Sumens illud Ave, peccatórum miserére.

V. Angelus Domini nuntiávit Maríæ.
R. Et concépit de Spíritu Sancto.


Grátiam tuam, quæsumus, Dómine, mentibus nostris infúnde: ut, qui, Angelo nuntiánte, Christi Fílii tui incarnatiónem cognóvimus; per passiónem eius et crucem, ad resurrectiónis glóriam perducámur. Per eúmdem Christum Dóminum nóstrum. Amen.


Mother of Christ, hear thou thy people's cry
Star of the deep and Portal of the sky!
Mother of Him who thee made from nothing made.
Sinking we strive and call to thee for aid:
O, by what joy which Gabriel brought to thee,
Thou Virgin first and last, let us thy mercy see.

V. The Angel of the Lord announced unto Mary.
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.

Let us pray.

Pour forth, we beseech thee, O Lord, thy grace into our hearts: that as we have known the incarnation of thy Son Jesus Christ by the message of an Angel, so too by his Cross and passion may we be brought to the glory of his resurrection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
