Antiphona
Fulcíte me flóribus,
stipáte me malis,
quia amóre lángueo.
(Ps. 126) Nisi Dóminus ædificáverit domum,
in vanum laboravérunt qui ædíficant eam.
2. Nisi Dóminus custodíerit civitátem,
frustra vígilat qui custódit eam.
3. Vanum est vobis ante lucem súrgere:
súrgite postquam sedéritis, qui manducátis panem dolóris.
4. Cum déderit diléctis suis somnum:
ecce heréditas Dómini fílii: merces, fructus ventris.
5. Sicut sagíttæ in manu poténtis:
ita fílii excussórum.
6. Beátus vir qui implévit desidérium suum ex ipsis:
non confundétur cum loquétur inimícis suis in porta.
7. Glória Patri, et Fílio,
et Spirítui Sancto.
8. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper,
et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Fúlcíte me flóribus,
stipáte me malis,
quia amóre lángueo.
Sustain me with flowers,
comfort me with apples,
for I am faint with love.
(Ps. 126) Unless the Lord has built the house,
those who build it have labored in vain.
2. Unless the Lord has guarded the city,
he who guards it watches in vain.
3. It is in vain that you rise before daylight,
that you rise up after you have sat down, you who chew the bread of sorrow.
4. Whereas, to his beloved, he will give sleep.
Behold, the inheritance of the Lord is sons, the reward is the fruit of the womb.
the fruit of the womb, a reward.
5. Like arrows in the hand of the powerful,
so are the sons of those who have been cast out.
6. Blessed is the man who has filled his desire from these things.
He will not be confounded when he speaks to his enemies at the gate.
7. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
8. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
Sustain me with flowers,
comfort me with apples,
for I am faint with love.
