Text: September 14 - Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross - First Antiphon

First Antiphon:

My God, my God, look upon me, why have You forsaken me? Why can’t my sinful words reach You, my salvation.

Through the prayers of the Mother of God, O Saviour save us.

When I cry to You during the day, O my God, You do not listen, and there is no rest for me at night.

Through the prayers of the Mother of God, O Saviour save us.

Nonetheless You are there in the holy place, O Israel’s boast.

Through the prayers of the Mother of God, O Saviour save us.

Glory be . . . now and forever . . . : Only Begotten Son
