Excerpted from the order for a Procession in Time of Tribulation, The Roman Ritual, 1964:
V. Our Father (the rest inaudibly until)
V. And lead us not into temptation.
R. But deliver us from evil.
Then Psalm 19 is said; or in place of it, Psalm 90. After the psalm, the priest continues:
V. God is our refuge and our strength
R. A helper in all tribulations.
V. Lord, save Your servants.
R. Who trust in You, my God.
V. O holy God! O holy strong One! O holy Immortal One!
R. Have mercy on us.
V. Help us, O God, our Savior.
R. And deliver us, O Lord, for the glory of Your name.
V. Lord, heed my prayer.
R. And let my cry be heard by You.
V. The Lord be with you.
R. May He also be with you.
Let us pray.
Almighty God, do not disdain your people who cry to You in their affliction, but for the glory of Your name be pleased to help us who are so sorely troubled. Show us, O Lord, Your inexpressible mercy, blot out our transgressions, and graciously deliver us from the condemnation they deserve. We entreat you, Lord God, grant us, Your servants, the enjoyment of lasting health of body and mind and by the glorious intercession of blessed Mary ever a Virgin, free us from present sorrow and give us everlasting joy. Graciously hear us, O Lord, in our tribulation, and turn away the stripes of Your wrath in which we justly deserve. God, our refuge and our strentgh and source of all goodness, heed the holy prayers of Your Church, and grant that we fully obtain whatever we ask for in faith; through Christ our Lord.
