Little Office of Christ the King

This is a one time blog to contain the Little Office of Christ the King, on the pattern of the pre-Vatican II "Little Offices" of devotion. They existed for the Immaculate Conception, St Joseph and the Holy Angels, that I'm aware of.

V. O Lord, open Thou my lips.
R. That my mouth may proclaim Thy praise.

V. O, God, make speed to save me.
R. O, Lord make haste to help me.

V. Glory be...
R. As it was...
Alleluia (In Lent: Praise be to Thee, O King of Eternal Glory)

Lord of the ages evermore,
Each nation's King, the wide world o'er,
O Christ, our only Judge thou art,
And Searcher of the mind and heart.

Through Sin with rebel voice maintain,
We will not have this Christ to reign,
Far other, Lord, shall be our cry,
Who hail thee King of kings most High.

O thou eternal Prince of peace,
Subdue man's pride, bid error cease,
Permit not sin to wax o'er-bold,
The strayed bring home within the fold.

For this thou hangedst on the Tree
With arms outstretched in loving plea;
For this thou shewedst forth thy Heart,
On fire with love, pierced by the dart.

All praise, King Jesu, be to thee,
The Lord of all in majesty;
Whom with the Father we adore,
And Holy Ghost for evermore. Amen.

Ant. The Lord God * shall give unto him the throne of his father David, and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever, and of his kingdom there shall be no end, alleluia.

V. All power is given unto me.
R. In heaven and in earth.

V. O lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.

Let us Pray

Almighty and everlasting God, who hast exalted thy beloved Son to be King over all worlds, and hast willed in him to make all things new : mercifully grant that the kindreds of the earth which are wounded and dispersed by sin : may speedily be knit together under his gracious sovereignty. Who liveth and reigneth with thee.

V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.

V. Let us bless the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.

And may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
