De Iudith
Resp. Tribulationes ciuitatum audiuimus quae passae sunt, et defecimus; timor et ebetudo mentis cecidit super nos et super liberos nostros; ipsi montes nolunt recipere fugam nostram; Domine, miserere.
Uers. Peccauimus cum patribus nostris; iniuste egimus, iniquitatem fecimus. [Psalm 105:6]
Refr. Domine, miserere.
Resp. Nos alium deum nescimus, praeter Dominum in quo speramus, qui non despiciat nos, nec amouet salutem a genere nostro.
Uers. Indulgentiam illius fusis lacrimis postulemus, et humiliemus illi animas nostras.
Refr. Qui non despicit nos, nec amouet salutem a genere nostro.
Resp. Domine Deus, qui conteris bella ab initio, eleua brachium tuum super gentes quae cogitant seruis tuis mala, et dextera tua glorificetur in nobis. [cf. Judith 9:10-11]
Uers. Allide uirtutem eorum in uirtute tua, cadat uirtus eorum in iracundia tua. [Judith 9:11]
Refr. Et dextera tua glorificetur in nobis.
Resp. Dominator Domine coelorum et terrae, creator aquarum, rex uniuersae creaturae tuae, exaudi orationem seruorum tuorum. [cf. Judith 9:17]
Uers. Tu, Domine, cui humilium semper et mansuetorum placuit deprecatio.
Refr. Exaudi orationem seruorum tuorum.
Resp. Uos qui in turribus estis, aperite portas: [Judith 13:13] Dominus omnipotens fecit uirtutem, et uictoriam dedit de inimicis nostris.
Uers. Laudate Dominum Deum nostrum, qui non deseruit presumentes de se. [Judith 13:17]
Refr. Et uictoriam dedit de inimicis nostris.
Resp. Laudate Dominum Deum nostrum, qui non deseruit sperantes in se, [Judith 13:17] et in me adimpleuit misericordiam suam quam promisit domui Israhel.
Uers. Confitemini Domino quoniam bonus, quoniam in speculum misericordia eius. [Psalm 117:1]
Refr. Quam promisit domui Israel.
Resp. Benedixit te Dominus in uirtute sua, qui per te ad nihilum redegit inimicos nostros, [Judith 13:22] ut non deficiat laus tua de ore hominum. [Judith 13:25]
Uers. Benedictus Dominus qui creauit coelum et terram quia hodie nomen suum magnificauit.
Refr. Ut non deficiat laus tua de ore hominum.
Resp. Adonai, Domine Deus magne et mirabilis, qui dedisti salutem in manu feminae, exaudi preces seruorum tuorum.
Uers. Benedictus es, Domine, qui non relinquis praesumentes de te, et de sua uirtute gloriantes humilias. [Judith 6:15]
Refr. Exaudi preces seruorum tuorum.

Of Judith
Resp. We have heard the tribulations that the cities have suffered, and have wasted away; fear and dullness of mind have fallen upon us and upon our children; even the mountains will not receive our flight; Lord have mercy.
Vers. We have sinned with our fathers; we have acted unjustly, we have wrought iniquity.
Refr. Lord have mercy.
Resp. We do not know any other god, except the Lord in whom we trust, who despises us not, nor takes away his salvation from our nation.
