If this is the first Hour that you are reciting today, you should precede it with the Invitatory Psalm.

If you have already recited the Invitatory Psalm today, you should use the alternative opening.

O Lord, open my lips.

And my mouth will proclaim your praise.


Invitatory Psalm

Psalm 99 (100)

Come, let us worship the Lord, the great King.

– Come, let us worship the Lord, the great King.*

Rejoice in the Lord, all the earth,

and serve him with joy.

Exult as you enter his presence.

– Come, let us worship the Lord, the great King.*

Know that the Lord is God.

He made us and we are his

– his people, the sheep of his flock.

– Come, let us worship the Lord, the great King.*

Cry out his praises as you enter his gates,

fill his courtyards with songs.

Proclaim him and bless his name;

for the Lord is our delight.

His mercy lasts for ever,

his faithfulness through all the ages.

– Come, let us worship the Lord, the great King.*

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.

– Come, let us worship the Lord, the great King.*

* If you are reciting this on your own, you can choose to say the antiphon once only at the start of the psalm and not repeat it.
