A Commentary On The Psalms From Primitive and Mediæval Writers Volumes 1 To 4 by Rev. J.M. Neale D.D.

O GOD,* Redeemer of all, and ineffable Giver of our salvation, Who passing into hell for us, wast free among the dead, hear the morning prayer of Thy servants, and deliver us from the grievous bondage of the crafty foe. Who livest.

O LORD JESU CHRIST,* Who foreknowing him that should deliver Thee unto death, didst foretell it before Thy death, and dying didst go down thither where is the appointed house of all living, to wit, into hell; Grant us that when the time of our summons shall arrive, we may not go down thither to be held in punishment, whither Thou camest dying to be a deliverer through pardon, but stretching out Thine hand, save us by Thy manifest power from the depth of hell, Who alone didst vouchsafe to lay down Thy life for sinners. (11.)

O Good CHRIST,* consider our need and poverty, lest Thou shouldst hide Thy face from us and cast off our soul, that we who are poor and afflicted from our youth up, may at length be refreshed with heavenly delights, and rejoice in being clothed with everlasting immortality. (11.)

Come quickly,* O CHRIST, to Thy Church, to comfort her, poor and in troubles, that Thou, Who becamest poor and needy for her sake, mayest reward her with heavenly gifts in the world to come. (11.)

O CHRIST, SON of GOD the FATHER,* Who bearest the vision of the Cross, when Thine acquaintance, the disciples, stood afar off in Thy Passion, suffer not Thyself, we pray Thee, to go far from us, but make known unto us the paths of Thy sweetness, and as Thou didst not come forth when Thou wast delivered up, in that Thou didst not disclose Thyself as GOD to the inner sight of men, grant us a true knowledge of Thy Godhead, that after our passage hence we may enjoy Thee in that substance, Who with the FATHER and the HOLY GHOST abidest One in Unity and in glory everlasting. (11.)

O LORD GOD of our salvation, (D. C.) graciously have mercy upon us, and by the abundance of Thy propitiation call back our soul, which is full of troubles, and our life which, through sin, draweth nigh unto hell; put us far from all sorrow now and for evermore, that through Thy bountiful mercy, we may evermore pay Thee our debt of praise. (1.)

We humbly beseech Thee, O CHRIST,* to strengthen with Thy might Thy servants delivered by Thy Passion from the snare of hell, and vouchsafe to loose them from the toils of the second death, that disburdened and free, we may be united unto Thy kingdom.
