Office hymns are used as one part of the Divine Office or Liturgy of the Hours in the Western Rite, including the services of Lauds (morning prayer), Vespers (evening prayer), and Compline (prayer just before going to bed), although the texts are used at other times as well, as in the procession to the altar of repose on Maundy Thursday. These Latin hymns are frequently sung in English in Anglican services. They have also been translated and paraphrased in other languages and used as simple hymns and chorales. They are not to be confused with Category:Sequence hymns.

A book devoted to hymns for the Office is called a hymnary or hymnarium. Notable polyphonic collections are Dufay's Hymnarium, Lasso's Hymni per totum annum anno 1581, Victoria's Hymni totius anni (1581) and Palestrina's Hymni totius anni...4ibus vocibus (1589).
