Malachi 3 : 1 and Psalm 71 : 1
Ecce, advenit dominator Dominus : et regnum in manu ejus et potestas et imperium.
Deus, judicium Tuum Regida : et justitiam Tuam Filio Regis.
Response : Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto, sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper : et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
Behold the Lord the Ruler has come, and a kingdom in His hand, and power and dominion.
Give to the King Your judgment, o God, and to the King’s Son Your justice.
Response : Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Deus, qui hodierna die Unigenitum Tuum gentibus stella duce revelasti : concede propitius; ut, qui jam Te ex fide cognovimus, usque ad contemplandam speciem Tuae celsitudinis perducamur. Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
O God, You who by the guidance of a star had revealed this day Your only begotten Son to the Gentiles, mercifully grant that we, who know You now by faith, may be so led as to behold with our eyes the beauty of Your majesty. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
