Antiphona
Non est ei spécies neque decor :
et vídimus eum, et non erat aspéctus.
(Ps. 121) Lætátus sum in his, quæ dicta sunt mihi:
In domum Dómini íbimus.
2. Stantes erant pedes nostri,
in átriis tuis, Jerúsalem.
3. Jerúsalem, quæ ædificátur ut cívitas:
cujus participátio ejus in idípsum.
4. Illuc enim ascendérunt tribus, tribus Dómini:
testimónium Israel ad confiténdum nómini Dómini.
5. Quia illic sedérunt sedes in judício,
sedes super domum David.
6. Rogáte quæ ad pacem sunt Jerúsalem:
et abundántia diligéntibus te:
7. Fiat pax in virtúte tua:
et abundántia in túrribus tuis.
8. Propter fratres meos, et próximos meos,
loquébar pacem de te:
9. Propter domum Dómini, Dei nostri,
quæsívi bona tibi.
10. Glória Patri, et Fílio,
et Spirítui Sancto.
11. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper,
et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Non est ei spécies neque decor :
et vídimus eum, et non erat aspéctus.
He hath no form nor comeliness;
and we have seen him, and no appearance that we should desire him.
(Ps. 121) I rejoiced in the things that were said to me:
We shall go into the house of the Lord.
2. Our feet were standing
in your courts, O Jerusalem.
3. Jerusalem has been built as a city,
whose participation is unto itself.
4. For to that place, the tribes ascended, the tribes of the Lord:
the testimony of Israel, to confess to the name of the Lord.
5. For in that place, seats have sat down in judgment,
seats above the house of David.
6. Petition for the things that are for the peace of Jerusalem,
and for abundance for those who love you.
7. Let peace be in your virtue,
and abundance in your towers.
8. For the sake of my brothers and my neighbors,
I spoke peace about you.
9. For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I sought good things for you.
10. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
11. As it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
He hath no form nor comeliness;
and we have seen him, and no appearance that we should desire him.
