Ad te levávi
Posted by james0235 on November 29, 2009
This is the Introit (Entrance Antiphon) for the Mass of the Roman Rite in both its Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms for the 1st Sunday of Advent. And it was the inspiration for the name of this blog.
Ad te levávi ánimam meam, Deus meus, in te confído, non erubéscam. Neque irrídeant me inimíci mei, étenim univérsi qui te exspéctant non confundéntur.
To you, my God, I lift my soul, I trust in you; let me never come to shame. Do not let my enemies laugh at me. No one who waits for you is ever put to shame.
(Official ICEL translation)
To Thee have I lifted up my soul: in Thee, O my God, I put my trust, let me not be ashamed: neither let my enemies laugh at me: for none of them that wait on Thee shall be confounded.
(1962 Roman Catholic Daily Missal)
