Antiphon A (From the Office of Dawn)

In mine affliction, Lord,
My cry went up to Thee,
And to my sorrowing heart,
Thou gav’st Thy mercy free.

When life is parched and dry,
Refreshing streams appear,
And earth’s vain sounds are dead
To my enchanted ear.

To Holy Ghost be praise,
To Father and to Son:
Almighty Trinity,
While endless ages run.
