Hymnus
Optátus votis ómnium
sacrátus illúxit dies,
quo Christus, mundi spes, Deus,
conscéndit cælos árduos.
Magni triúmphum prœ́lii,
mundi perémpto príncipe,
Patris præséntans vúltibus
victrícis carnis glóriam.
In nube fertur lúcida
et spem facit credéntibus,
iam paradísum réserans
quem protoplásti cláuserant.
O grande cunctis gáudium,
quod partus nostræ Vírginis,
post sputa, flagra, post crucem
patérnæ sedi iúngitur.
Agámus ergo grátias
nostræ salútis víndici,
nostrum quod corpus véxerit
sublíme ad cæli régiam.
Sit nobis cum cæléstibus
commúne manens gáudium:
illis, quod semet óbtulit,
nobis, quod se non ábstulit.
Nunc, Christe, scandens ǽthera
ad te cor nostrum súbleva,
tuum Patrísque Spíritum
emíttens nobis cǽlitus. Amen.
Hymn
Eternal Monarch, King most high,
whose blood hath brought redemption nigh,
by whom the death of Death was wrought,
and conquering Grace’s battle fought.
Ascending to the throne of might,
and seated at the Father’s right,
all power in heaven is Jesus’ own,
that here his manhood had not known.
That so, in nature’s triple frame,
each heavenly and each earthly name,
and things in hell’s abyss abhorred,
may bend the knee and own him Lord.
Yea, angels tremble when they see
how changed is our humanity;
that flesh hath purged what flesh had stained,
and God, the flesh of God, hath reigned.
Be thou our joy and strong defence,
who art our future recompense:
so shall the light that springs from thee
be ours through all eternity.
O risen Christ, ascended Lord,
all praise to thee let earth accord,
who art, while endless ages run,
with Father and with Spirit one.

Ps 50:3-21
Miserere mei, Deus
Renovari spiritu mentis vestræ et induere novum hominem” (Eph 4, 23-24).
Confíde, fili, remittúntur tibi peccáta tua, allelúia.
3Miserére mei, Deus,*
  secúndum misericórdiam tuam;
et secúndum multitúdinem miseratiónum tuárum*
  dele iniquitátem meam.
4Amplius lava me ab iniquitáte mea*
  et a peccáto meo munda me.
5Quóniam iniquitátem meam ego cognósco,*
  et peccátum meum contra me est semper.
6Tibi, tibi soli peccávi*
  et malum coram te feci,
ut iustus inveniáris in senténtia tua*
  et æquus in iudício tuo.
7Ecce enim in iniquitáte generátus sum,*
  et in peccáto concépit me mater mea.
8Ecce enim veritátem in corde dilexísti*
  et in occúlto sapiéntiam manifestásti mihi.
9Aspérges me hyssópo, et mundábor;*
  lavábis me, et super nivem dealbábor.
10Audíre me fácies gáudium et lætítiam,*
  et exsultábunt ossa, quæ contrivísti.
11Avérte fáciem tuam a peccátis meis*
  et omnes iniquitátes meas dele.
12Cor mundum crea in me, Deus,*
  et spíritum firmum ínnova in viscéribus meis.
13Ne proícias me a fácie tua*
  et spíritum sanctum tuum ne áuferas a me.
14Redde mihi lætítiam salutáris tui*
  et spíritu promptíssimo confírma me.
15Docébo iníquos vias tuas,*
  et ímpii ad te converténtur.
16Líbera me de sanguínibus, Deus, Deus salútis meæ,*
  et exsultábit lingua mea iustítiam tuam.
17Dómine, lábia mea apéries,*
  et os meum annuntiábit laudem tuam.
18Non enim sacrifício delectáris,*
  holocáustum, si ófferam, non placébit.
19Sacrifícium Deo spíritus contribulátus,*
  cor contrítum et humiliátum, Deus, non despícies.
20Benígne fac, Dómine, in bona voluntáte tua Sion,*
  ut ædificéntur muri Ierúsalem.
21Tunc acceptábis sacrifícium iustítiæ, oblatiónes et holocáusta;*
  tunc impónent super altáre tuum vítulos.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Confíde, fili, remittúntur tibi peccáta tua, allelúia.
Psalm 50 (51)
God, have mercy on me
Have courage, my son: your sins are forgiven you. Alleluia.
Take pity on me, Lord, in your mercy;
  in your abundance of mercy wipe out my guilt.
Wash me ever more from my guilt
  and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know how guilty I am:
  my sin is always before me.
Against you, you alone have I sinned,
  and I have done evil in your sight.
Know this, so that you may give just sentence
  and an unbiased judgement.
See, I was conceived in guilt,
  in sin my mother conceived me;
but you love truth in the heart,
  and deep within me you have shown me your wisdom.
You will sprinkle me with hyssop, and I will be made clean;
  you will wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
You will make me hear the sound of joy and gladness;
  the bones you have crushed will rejoice.
Turn your face away from my sins
  and wipe out all my transgressions;
create a pure heart in me, God,
  put a steadfast spirit into me.
Do not send me away from your presence,
  or withdraw your holy spirit from me;
give me again the joy of your salvation,
  and be ready to strengthen me with your spirit.
I will teach the unjust your ways,
  and the impious will return to you.
Free me from the guilt of bloodshed, God, God my saviour,
  and my voice will glory in your justice.
Open my lips, Lord,
  and my mouth will proclaim your praise;
for you do not delight in sacrifices:
  if I offered you a burnt offering, it would not please you.
The true sacrifice is a broken spirit:
  a contrite and humble heart, O God, you will not refuse.
Be pleased, Lord, to look kindly on Zion,
  so that the walls of Jerusalem can be rebuilt,
Then indeed you will accept the proper sacrifices, gifts and burnt offerings;
  then indeed will bullocks be laid upon your altar.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
Have courage, my son: your sins are forgiven you. Alleluia.

Canticum
Hab 3:2-4,13,15-19
Deus apparet ad iudicandum
Levate capita vestra, quoniam appropinquat redemptio vestra” (Lc 21, 28).
Egréssus es, Dómine, in salútem pópuli tui, cum Christo tuo, allelúia.
2Dómine, audívi auditiónem tuam,*
  et tímui, Dómine, opus tuum.
In médio annórum vivífica illud,*
  in médio annórum notum fácies.
Cum irátus fúeris,*
  misericórdiæ recordáberis.
3Deus a Theman véniet,*
  et Sanctus de monte Pharan.
Operit cælos glóriæ eius,*
  et laudis eius plena est terra.
4Splendor eius ut lux erit,†
  rádii ex mánibus eius:*
  ibi abscóndita est fortitúdo eius.
13Egréssus es in salútem pópuli tui,*
  in salútem cum christo tuo.
15Viam fecísti in mari equis tuis,*
  in luto aquárum multárum.
16Audívi, et conturbátus est venter meus,*
  ad vocem contremuérunt lábia mea.
Ingréditur putrédo in óssibus meis,*
  et subter me vacíllant gressus mei.
Conquiéscam in die tribulatiónis,*
  ut ascéndat super pópulum, qui invádit nos.
17Ficus enim non florébit,*
  et non erit fructus in víneis;
mentiétur opus olívæ,*
  et arva non áfferent cibum;
abscíssum est de ovíli pecus,*
  et non est arméntum in præsépibus.
18Ego autem in Dómino gaudébo*
  et exsultábo in Deo salvatóre meo.
19Dóminus Deus fortitúdo mea,†
  et ponet pedes meos quasi cervórum*
  et super excélsa mea dedúcet me.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Egréssus es, Dómine, in salútem pópuli tui, cum Christo tuo, allelúia.
CanticleHabakkuk 3
The Lord will appear in judgement
Lord, you came forth with strength to save your people; you came with your Anointed One, alleluia.
Lord, I heard what you gave me to hear,
  and I was struck with awe of your work.
In the midst of the years, bring it to life;
  in the midst of the years you will make it known.
When you are angry, you will remember your mercy.
God will come from Theman,
  the holy one from the mountain of Pharan.
His glory has covered the heavens
  and the earth is full of his praise.
His brightness shall be like light itself,
  rays shining from his hands –
  there is his strength hidden.
You went forth for the salvation of the people,
  for salvation with your anointed one.
You made a way through the sea for your horses,
  in the silt of many waters.
I have heard you, Lord,
  and my stomach churns within me;
  at the sound of your voice my lips tremble.
My bones rot away, my steps stumble.
I will rest and be quiet on the day of tribulation
  and let it overtake those who have invaded us.
For the fig will not flower,
  the vines will not fruit,
  the work of the olive will be lost.
The fields will yield no food,
  the flocks will be cut off from the sheepfold,
  there will be no cattle in the stalls.
But I will rejoice in the Lord, take joy in God my saviour.
The Lord God is my strength.
  He will make me as sure-footed as the deer.
  He will lead me up to the heights.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
Lord, you came forth with strength to save your people; you came with your Anointed One, alleluia.

Ps 147:12-20
Instauratio Ierusalem
Veni, ostendam tibi sponsam uxorem Agni” (Ap 21, 9).
Lauda Deum tuum, Sion, qui pósuit fines tuos pacem, allelúia.
12Lauda, Ierúsalem, Dóminum;*
  colláuda Deum tuum, Sion.
13Quóniam confortávit seras portárum tuárum,*
  benedíxit fíliis tuis in te.
14Qui ponit fines tuos pacem*
  et ádipe fruménti sátiat te.
15Qui emíttit elóquium suum terræ,*
  velóciter currit verbum eius.
16Qui dat nivem sicut lanam,*
  pruínam sicut cínerem spargit.
17Mittit crystállum suam sicut buccéllas;*
  ante fáciem frígoris eius quis sustinébit?
18Emíttet verbum suum et liquefáciet ea,*
  flabit spíritus eius, et fluent aquæ.
19Qui annúntiat verbum suum Iacob,*
  iustítias et iudícia sua Israel.
20Non fecit táliter omni natióni,*
  et iudícia sua non manifestávit eis.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Lauda Deum tuum, Sion, qui pósuit fines tuos pacem, allelúia.
Psalm 147 (147B)
God, the foundation of Jerusalem
Sion, praise your God, for he has established peace in your land, alleluia.
Praise the Lord, Jerusalem
 — Zion, praise your God.
For he has strengthened the bars of your gates,
  he has blessed your children.
He keeps your borders in peace,
  he fills you with the richest wheat.
He sends out his command over the earth,
  and swiftly runs his word.
He sends down snow that is like wool,
  frost that is like ashes.
He sends hailstones like crumbs
 — who can withstand his cold?
He will send out his word, and all will be melted;
  his spirit will breathe, and the waters will flow.
He proclaims his word to Jacob,
  his laws and judgements to Israel.
He has not done this for other nations:
  he has not shown them his judgements.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
Sion, praise your God, for he has established peace in your land, alleluia.

Lectio brevisAct 5:30-32
Deus patrum nostrórum suscitávit Iesum, quem vos interemístis suspendéntes in ligno; hunc Deus Príncipem et Salvatórem exaltávit déxtera sua ad dandam pæniténtiam Israel et remissiónem peccatórum. Et nos sumus testes horum verbórum, et Spíritus Sanctus, quem dedit Deus obœdiéntibus sibi.
Short ReadingActs 5:30-32 ©
It was the God of our ancestors who raised up Jesus, but it was you who had him executed by hanging on a tree. By his own right hand God has now raised him up to be leader and saviour, to give repentance and forgiveness of sins through him to Israel. We are witnesses to all this, we and the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him.

The Messiah and his forerunner
In Jesus we see one who is crowned now with glory and honour because he suffered death, alleluia.
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
  for he has come to his people and brought about their redemption.
He has raised up the sign of salvation
  in the house of his servant David,
as he promised through the mouth of the holy ones,
  his prophets through the ages:
to rescue us from our enemies
  and all who hate us,
to take pity on our fathers,
  to remember his holy covenant
and the oath he swore to Abraham our father,
  that he would give himself to us,
that we could serve him without fear
 – freed from the hands of our enemies –
in uprightness and holiness before him,
  for all of our days.
And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High:
  for you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare his path,
to let his people know their salvation,
  so that their sins may be forgiven.
Through the bottomless mercy of our God,
  one born on high will visit us
to give light to those who walk in darkness,
  who live in the shadow of death;
  to lead our feet in the path of peace.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
In Jesus we see one who is crowned now with glory and honour because he suffered death, alleluia.

Send your Spirit upon us.
You wanted your disciples to be wise as serpents and yet simple as doves:
