Eructavit cor meum verbum bonum : dico ego opera mea Regi.

All the rich among the people shall entreat your countenance, after her shall virgins be brought to the King. Her neighbours shall be brought to you in gladness and rejoicing.

Alleluia, Alleluia.

My heart had uttered a good word. I speak my works to the King.

Deus, qui de Beatae Mariae Virginis utero Verbum Tuum, Angelo nuntiate, carnem suscipere voluisti : praesta supplicibus Tuis, ut, qui vere eam Genetricem Dei credimus, ejus apud te intercessionibus adjuvemur. Per Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum Filium Tuum, qui Tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen.

English translation

O God, Who had willed that at the message of an Angel, Your word should become flesh in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary, grant that we, Your suppliants, who believe her to be truly the Mother of God, may be helped by her intercession with You. Through the same Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who with You lives and reigns in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end. Amen.
