The Lord is the king of martyrs: come, let us adore him.

  Who will stand in his holy place?
The one who is innocent of wrongdoing and pure of heart,

  and be justified by God his saviour.
This is the way of those who seek him,
  seek the face of the God of Jacob.

Hymnus
Martyr Dei, qui (quæ) únicum
Patris sequéndo Fílium
victis triúmphas hóstibus,
victor (victrix) fruens cæléstibus,
Tui precátus múnere
nostrum reátum dílue,
arcens mali contágium,
vitæ repéllens tǽdium.
Solúta sunt iam víncula
tui sacráti córporis;
nos solve vinclis sǽculi
amóre Fílii Dei.
Honor Patri cum Fílio
et Spíritu Paráclito,
qui te coróna pérpeti
cingunt in aula glóriæ. Amen.
Hymn
All hail the power of Jesus’ name;
  Let Angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem
  To crown him Lord of all.
Crown him, ye Martyrs of your God,
  Who from his altar call;
Praise him whose way of pain ye trod,
  And crown him Lord of all.
Hail him, ye heirs of David’s line,
  Whom David Lord did call;
The God Incarnate, Man Divine,
  And crown him Lord of all.
Let every tribe and every tongue
  To him their hearts enthral,
Lift high the universal song,
  And crown him Lord of all.

Ps 84:2-14
Propinqua est salus nostra

In terram delapso Salvatore nostro, benedixit Deus terram suam” (Origenes).

Benedixísti, Dómine, terram tuam; remisísti iniquitátem plebis tuæ.
2Complacuísti tibi, Dómine, in terra tua,*
  convertísti captivitátem Iacob.
3Remisísti iniquitátem plebis tuæ,*
  operuísti ómnia peccáta eórum.
4Contraxísti omnem iram tuam,*
  revertísti a furóre indignatiónis tuæ.
5Convérte nos, Deus, salutáris noster,*
  et avérte iram tuam a nobis.
6Numquid in ætérnum irascéris nobis*
  aut exténdes iram tuam a generatióne in generatiónem?
7Nonne tu convérsus vivificábis nos,*
  et plebs tua lætábitur in te?
8Osténde nobis, Dómine, misericórdiam tuam*
  et salutáre tuum da nobis.
9Audiam, quid loquátur Dóminus Deus,†
  quóniam loquétur pacem ad plebem suam et sanctos suos*
  et ad eos, qui convertúntur corde.
10Vere prope timéntes eum salutáre ipsíus,*
  ut inhábitet glória in terra nostra.
11Misericórdia et véritas obviavérunt sibi,*
  iustítia et pax osculátæ sunt.
12Véritas de terra orta est,*
  et iustítia de cælo prospéxit.
13Etenim Dóminus dabit benignitátem,*
  et terra nostra dabit fructum suum.
14Iustítia ante eum ambulábit,*
  et ponet in via gressus suos.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Benedixísti, Dómine, terram tuam; remisísti iniquitátem plebis tuæ.
Psalm 84 (85)
Our salvation is very near
Lord, you blessed your land; you forgave the guilt of your people.
You looked kindly, O Lord, on your land:
  you ended the captivity of Jacob.
You forgave your people’s unrighteousness
  and covered over their sins.
You reined back all of your anger
  and renounced your indignant fury.
Rescue us, God, our saviour,
  and turn your anger away from us.
Do not be angry for ever
 – or will you let your wrath last from one generation to the next?
Surely you will turn round and give us life
 – so that your people can rejoice in you?
Show us, Lord, your kindness
  and give us your salvation.
I will listen to whatever the Lord God tells me,
  for he will speak peace to his people and his chosen ones,
  and to those who repent in their hearts.
Truly his salvation is close to those who fear him,
  so that glory may dwell in our land.
Kindness and faithfulness have met together,
  justice and peace have kissed.
Faithfulness has sprung from the earth,
  and justice has looked down from heaven.
Truly the Lord will give generously,
  and our land will be fruitful.
Justice will walk before him
  and place its footsteps on his path.
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 blessed your land; you forgave the guilt of your people.

CanticleIsaiah 26
Thanksgiving for victory
At night my soul longs for you; I watch for you at daybreak.
The city is ours,
  with its walls and ramparts,
  a refuge and stronghold.
Open the gates, let the just people enter,
  the nation that keeps faith.
The agreement is made: you will keep peace,
  for peace is entrusted to you.
Trust in the Lord for all ages,
  for the Lord is your strength for ever.
The way of the just is straight;
  you smooth the straight path of the just.
As we follow the path of your judgements,
  we put all our trust in you, Lord.
Our soul’s one desire
  is your name and your memory.
My soul longs for you at night,
  my desire for you leaves me breathless.
When your judgements shine out on the earth –
  then the peoples of the world will know your justice.
Lord, you will give us peace,
  for all you have done, you did for us.
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.
At night my soul longs for you; I watch for you at daybreak.

2 Corinthians 1:3-5 ©
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, a gentle Father and the God of all consolation, who comforts us in all our sorrows, so that we can offer others, in their sorrows, the consolation that we have received from God ourselves. Indeed, as the sufferings of Christ overflow to us, so, through Christ, does our consolation overflow.

Canticum
De Messia eiusque præcursore
Magnificábitur Christus in córpore meo, sive per vitam sive per mortem. Mihi enim vívere Christus est et mori lucrum.
Benedíctus Dóminus Deus Israel,*
  quia visitávit et fecit redemptiónem plebi suæ
et eréxit cornu salútis nobis*
  in domo David púeri sui,
sicut locútus est per os sanctórum,*
  qui a sæculo sunt, prophetárum eius,
salútem ex inimícis nostris*
  et de manu ómnium, qui odérunt nos;
ad faciéndam misericórdiam cum pátribus nostris*
  et memorári testaménti sui sancti,
iusiurándum, quod iurávit ad Abraham patrem nostrum,*
  datúrum se nobis,
ut sine timóre, de manu inimicórum liberáti,*
  serviámus illi
in sanctitáte et iustítia coram ipso*
  ómnibus diébus nostris.
Et tu, puer, prophéta Altíssimi vocáberis:*
  præíbis enim ante fáciem Dómini paráre vias eius,
ad dandam sciéntiam salútis plebi eius*
  in remissiónem peccatórum eórum,
per víscera misericórdiæ Dei nostri,*
  in quibus visitábit nos óriens ex alto,
illumináre his, qui in ténebris et in umbra mortis sedent*
  ad dirigéndos pedes nostros in viam pacis.
Glória Patri et Fílio*

Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*

Magnificábitur Christus in córpore meo, sive per vitam sive per mortem. Mihi enim vívere Christus est et mori lucrum.
CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
Christ will be glorified in my body, whether by my life or by my death. Life to me, of course, is Christ, but then death would bring me something more.
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.
Christ will be glorified in my body, whether by my life or by my death. Life to me, of course, is Christ, but then death would bring me something more.

  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

Dóminus nos benedícat, et ab omni malo deféndat, et ad vitam perdúcat ætérnam.
  Amen.
The Lord bless us, and keep us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.
  Amen.
