Mozarabic Morning Prayers

From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised! (Psalm 113:3)
Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! (Psalm 113:2)

O God, your name is praised from the rising of the sun until it sets. Fill our hearts with knowledge and open our lips in your praise. Since you are blessed with due honor forever and ever, so may you be praised from the east to the west by all nations.
Amen.

Through your mercy, O our God, you are blessed, and live and govern all things, now and forever.
Amen.

 

It is right, O Lord, to declare your praise in the morning.
And your truth in the evening.

Let our morning prayer rise to you, O Lord. Since you receive our praise and have compassion on our weakness, grant that this day may be one of joy, peace and quietness and without stain of sin, so that being delivered from temptation, we may glorify you in the evening as our eternal King.
Amen.

Through your mercy, O our God, you are blessed, and live and govern all things, now and forever.
Amen.
