Capitulum Hymnus Versus {ex Proprio Sanctorum}
Rev 7:2-3
Ecce ego Ioánnes vidi álterum Angelum ascendéntem ab ortu solis, habentem signum Dei vivi: et clamávit voce magna quátuor Ángelis, quibus datum est nocére terræ et mari, dicens: Nolíte nocére terræ et mari, neque arbóribus, quoadúsque signemus servos Dei nostri in frontibus eórum.
R. Deo grátias.

Hymnus
Placare, Christe, servulis,
Quibus Pátris clementiam
Tuæ ad tribunal grátiæ
Patrona Virgo póstulat.

Et vos beáta, per novem
Distincta gyros ágmina,
Antíqua cum præsentibus,
Futúra damna péllite.

Apóstoli cum vatibus,
Apud severum Iúdicem,
Veris reorum flétibus
Exposcite indulgéntiam.

Vos purpurati mártyres,
Vos candidati præmio
Confessiónis, éxsules
Vocate nos in pátriam.

Chorea casta vírginum,
Et quos erémus íncolas
Transmísit astris, cælitum
Locáte nos in sédibus.

Auférte gentem pérfidam
Credéntium de fínibus,
Ut unus omnes únicum
Ovíle nos pastor regat.

Deo Patri sit glória,
Natóque Pátris unico,
Sancto simul Paráclito,
In sempitérna sæcula.

Chapter Hymn Verse {from the Proper of Saints}
Rev 7:2-3
And I saw another angel ascending from the rising of the sun, having the sign of the living God; and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying: Hurt not the earth, nor the sea, nor the trees, till we sign the servants of our God in their foreheads.
R. Thanks be to God.

Hymn
O Christ, thy guilty people spare!
Lo, kneeling at thy gracious throne,
thy Virgin-Mother pours her prayer,
Imploring pardon for her own.

Ye angels, happy evermore!
Who in your circles nine ascend,
As ye have guarded us before,
So still from harm our steps defend.

Ye prophets and Apostles high!
Behold our penitential tears;
And plead for us when death is nigh,
our all-searching judge appears.

Ye martyrs all! a purple band,
And confessors, a white-robed train;
Oh, call us to our native land,
From this our exile, back again.

And ye, O choirs of virgins chaste!
Receive us to your seats on high;
With hermits whom the desert waste
Sent up of old into the sky.

Drive from the flock, O Spirit blest!
The false and faithless race away;
That all within one fold may rest,
Secure beneath one shepherd's sway.

To God the Father glory be,
And to his sole-begotten Son;
And glory, Holy Ghost, to thee,
While everlasting ages run.
Amen.

V. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous.
R. And shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
