Orisons (Prayers) for the Hours: Matins & Lauds

At Matins:

O Lord, who grieved with their afflictions, didst lead thy people out of the darkness of Egypt, and vouchsafe to deliver them by the hand of thy servant: do Thou grant also unto us thy servants, that delivered from the darkness of this world, we may be allowed to enter into that rest which thou hast promised to our fathers, through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

O Lord God, who hast caused me to arrive at this second hour, through the darkness of the night: preserve me this day in every hour and moment of time, and through thy mercy cause me ever to continue without hurt, through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Father.

Hail Mary.

At Lauds:

O Lord, who with the three children in the furnace didst vouchsafe to be present in the fourth place: to whom it is most easy to temper the nature of fires, and to extinguish the fierceness of flames: extend this thy same power to protect us and to deliver our souls, who liveth and reigneth with the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen.
