Vidi Aquam (from Easter Day through the Day of Pentecost)

I saw water, * proceeding out of the temple, on the right side thereof, alleluia: and all they to whom that water came were healed every one; and they say, alleluia, alleluia. Ps. O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious: and his mercy endureth for ever. V. Glory be... I saw water...

V. O Lord, show thy mercy upon us; [alleluia]
R. And grant us thy salvation. [alleluia]
V. O Lord, hear my prayer;
R. And let my cry come unto thee.
V. The Lord be with you;
R. And with thy spirit.

Let us pray.

Graciously hear us, O Lord, Holy Father Almighty, Everlasting God; and may it please Thee to send thy holy Angel from heaven to guard and cherish, to protect and visit, and to defend all who dwell in this thy holy habitation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
