De ventre matris meae


R: De ventre matris meae vocavit me Dominus nomine meo: et posuit os meum ut gladium acutum: sub tegumento manus suae protexit me, * Posuit me quasi sagittam electam
V: Et glorificatus sum in oculis Domini, et Deus meus factus est fortitudo mea.
R: Posuit me quasi sagittam electam
V:Gloria Patri...
R: Posuit me quasi sagittam electam
R: The Lord hath called me from the womb, from the bowels of my mother he hath been mindful of my name. He hath made my mouth like a sharp sword in the shadow of his hand he hath protected me * Hath made me as a chosen arrow
V: and I am glorified in the eyes of the Lord, and my God is made my strength.
R: Hath made me as a chosen arrow
V: Glory be..
R: Hath made me as a chosen arrow
