timely antiphons

Thy Saints, O Lord, shall flourish like the lily, alleluia; and they shall be before Thee as the odor of balm, alleluia.

The dwelling of Saints is in heavenly kingdoms, alleluia, and their rest is everlasting alleluia.

Thy Saints, O Lord, cried out within the veil, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

O ye spirits and souls of the just, sing a hymn to our God, alleluia, alleluia.

The just will shine forth like the sun in the presence of god, alleluia.

Chapter: Wisdom 5.1
The just shall stand with great constancy against those that have afflicted them and have taken away their labors.

Short R: O ye holy and just ones, rejoice in the Lord, Alleluia, alleluia.

V: God hath chosen you unto Himself for an inheritance. Alleluia. Glory be to the Father....

(From Lauds in the Common of Apostles and Evangelists in Paschaltide, from the Monastic Diurnal)
