Psalm 49i udite haec
1 Hear this, all ye people; † give ear, all ye in- / hábitants óf the world:
↓* 2 Both low and high, rich and / póor, togéther.
3 My mouth shall / spéak of wísdom; * and the meditation of my
heart shall be of / únderstánding.
4 I will incline mine / éar to a párable: * I will open my dark sáy- / ing
upón the harp.
5 Wherefore should I fear in the / dáys of évil, * when the iniquity of
my heels shall / cómpass mé about?
6 ey that / trúst in their wealth, * and boast themselves in the multi-
tude / óf their ríches;
7 None of them can by any means re- / déem his bróther, * nor give
to God a / ránsom for him:
8 For the redemption of their / sóul is précious, * and it céas- / eth for
éver:
9 at he should still / líve for éver, * and not / sée corrúption.
10 For he seeth that wise men die, † likewise the fool and the brutish /
pérson pérish, * and leave their / wéalth to óthers.
11 eir inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever,
† and their dwelling places to all / génerátions; * they call their
lands áf- / ter their ówn names.
12 Nevertheless man being in / hónour abídeth not: ↑* he is like the /
béasts that pérish.
Glory be to the / Fáther and tó the Son * - and / tó the Hóly Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and / éver sháll be, * - wórld /
without énd. Amen.

Psalm 49ii aec via
13 is their wáy is their / fólly: ↓* yet their posterity appróve their /
sáyings.
14 Like sheep they are láid in the / grave; * déath shall / féed on
them;
And the upright shall have dominion over themín the / mórning; * and
their beauty shall consume in the grave fróm their / dwélling.
15 But God will redeemmy soul fromthe pówer / óf the grave: * for
hé shall re- / céive me.
16 Be not thou afraid when óne is made / rich, * when the glory of his
hóuse is / increased;
17 For when he dieth he shall carry nóthing a- / way: * his glory shall
nót descend / áer him.
18 ough while he líved he / bléssed his soul: * and men will praise
thee, when thou doest wéll to / thyself.
19 He shall go to the generation óf his / fáthers; * they shall néver /
see light.
20 Man that is in honour, and únder- / stándeth not, ↑* is like the
béasts that / pérish.
Glory be to the Fáther and / tó the Son * and tó the / Hóly Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and éver / sháll be, * wórld with-
out / énd. Amen.

1. O boundless Wisdom, God most high, / O Maker of the earth and
sky, / Who bid’st the parted waters flow / In heav’n above, on earth
below:
2. e streams on earth, the clouds in heav’n, / By ee their or-
dered bounds were giv’n, / Lest ‘neath th’ untempered fires of day
/ e parch-ed soil should waste away.
3. E’en so on us who seek y face / Pour forth the waters of y grace;
/ Renew the fount of life within, / And quench the wasting fires of
sin.
4. Let faith discern th’ eternal Light / Beyond the darkness of the
night, / And through the mists of falsehood see / e path of
truth revealed by ee.

Son; / Who, with the Holy Ghost and ee, / Doth live and reign
eternally./ Amen.

e Antiphon is repeated.
During the Magnificat, incense is used near the altar as a symbol of God’s presence in His
house and as a symbol of prayer (Ps. 141:2). Just as God was present with the children of
Israel in the form of a cloud (Exod. 13:21), He is present now during the praises of His
people. Just as the incense arises before the altar, so also our prayers arise to the throne of
God in heaven (Rev. 8:3-4).
