Hymnus
Chorus novæ Ierúsalem
hymni novam dulcédinem
promat, colens cum sóbriis
paschále festum gáudiis,
Quo Christus invíctus leo,
dracóne surgens óbruto,
dum voce viva pérsonat,
a morte functos éxcitat.
Quam devorárat ímprobus,
prædam refúndit tártarus;
captivitáte líbera
Iesum sequúntur ágmina.
Triúmphat ille spléndide
et dignus amplitúdine,
soli políque pátriam
unam facit rem públicam.
Ipsum canéndo súpplices
Regem precémur mílites,
ut in suo claríssimo
nos órdinet palátio.
Esto perénne méntibus
paschále, Iesu, gáudium
et nos renátos grátiæ
tuis triúmphis ággrega.
Iesu, tibi sit glória,
qui morte victa prǽnites,
cum Patre et almo Spíritu,
in sempitérna sǽcula. Amen.
Hymn
Light’s glittering morn bedecks the sky,
Heav’n thunders forth its victor cry:
The glad earth shouts her triumph high,
And groaning hell makes wild reply.
While he, the King of sovereign might,
Treads down death’s strength in death’s despite,
And trampling hell by victor’s right,
Brings forth his sleeping saints to light.
Fast barred beneath the stone of late,
In watch and ward where soldiers wait,
Now shining in triumphant state,
He rises victor from death’s gate.
Hell’s pains are loosed and tears are fled:
Captivity is captive led:
The angel, crowned with light, hath said:
‘The Lord is risen from the dead.’
Author of all, be thou our guide
In this our joy of Eastertide;
Whene’er assaults of death impend,
Thy people strengthen and defend.
To thee who, dead, again dost live,
All glory, Lord, thy people give:
All glory, as is ever meet,
To Father and to Paraclete.

Ps 107:2-14
Laus Domini et imploratio auxilii

Quia exaltatus est super cælos Dei Filius, super omnem terram eius gloria prædicatur” (Arnobius).

Exaltáre super omnes cælos, Deus, allelúia.
2Parátum cor meum, Deus,†
  parátum cor meum,*
  †cantábo et psallam. Euge, glória mea!
  3Exsúrge, psaltérium et cíthara,*
  excitábo auróram.
4Confitébor tibi in pópulis, Dómine,*
  et psallam tibi in natiónibus,
5quia magna est usque ad cælos misericórdia tua*
  et usque ad nubes véritas tua.
6Exaltáre super cælos, Deus,*
  et super omnem terram glória tua.
7Ut liberéntur dilécti tui,*
  salvum fac déxtera tua et exáudi me.
8Deus locútus est in sancto suo:†
  «Exsultábo et dívidam Síchimam*
  et convállem Succoth dimétiar;
9meus est Gálaad et meus est Manásses†
  et Ephraim fortitúdo cápitis mei,*
  Iuda sceptrum meum.
10Moab lebes lavácri mei;†
  super Idumǽam exténdam calceaméntum meum,*
  super Philistǽam vociferábor».
11Quis dedúcet me in civitátem munítam?*
  Quis dedúcet me usque in Idumǽam?
12Nonne, Deus, qui reppulísti nos?*
  Et non exíbis, Deus, in virtútibus nostris?
13Da nobis auxílium de tribulatióne,*
  quia vana salus hóminis.
14In Deo faciémus virtútem,*
  et ipse conculcábit inimícos nostros.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Exaltáre super omnes cælos, Deus, allelúia.
Psalm 107 (108)
Praise of the Lord and a plea for help
O God, arise above the heavens. Alleluia.
My heart is ready, O God –
  my heart is ready.
  I shall sing and make music.
Awake, my glory!
  Rise up, harp and lyre!
  We will awaken the dawn.
I will proclaim you to the peoples, O Lord,
  sing of you to the nations:
for your kindness is great, it reaches the heavens;
  great is your faithfulness, high as the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
  let your glory stretch over the earth.
Give deliverance to your beloved,
  let your right hand bring safety – answer my prayer!
God has spoken from his holy place:
“I shall triumph, dividing Shechem,
  measuring off the vale of Succoth.
Mine is Gilead, mine is Manasseh;
  Ephraim my helmet, Judah my sceptre.
But Moab shall be my wash-basin,
  on Edom I will place my sandal;
  I will cry in triumph over the Philistine.”
Who shall lead me to the fortified city?
  Who shall lead me to Edom?
Surely you, God – although you rejected us.
  Will you not come out, O God, with our armies?
Give us help in our troubles,
  for vain is the help of man.
With God we shall triumph –
  he will trample our enemies.
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.
O God, arise above the heavens. Alleluia.

CanticumIs 61:10-62:5
Iubilatio prophetæ de nova Ierusalem

Civitatem sanctam Ierusalem novam vidi ... paratam sicut sponsam ornatam viro suo” (Cf. Ap 21, 2).

Dóminus germinávit iustítiam et laudem coram univérsis géntibus, allelúia.
61,10Gaudens gaudébo in Dómino,*
  et exsultábit ánima mea in Deo meo,
quia índuit me vestiméntis salútis*
  et induménto iustítiæ circúmdedit me,
quasi sponsum decorátum coróna*
  et quasi sponsam ornátam monílibus suis.
11Sicut enim terra profert germen suum†
  et sicut hortus semen suum gérminat,*
  sic Dóminus Deus germinábit iustítiam et laudem coram univérsis géntibus.
62,1Propter Sion non tacébo*
  et propter Ierúsalem non quiéscam,
donec egrediátur ut splendor iustítia eius,*
  et salus eius ut lampas accendátur.
2Et vidébunt gentes iustítiam tuam*
  et cuncti reges glóriam tuam;
et vocáberis nómine novo,*
  quod os Dómini nominábit.
3Et eris coróna glóriæ in manu Dómini*
  et diadéma regni in manu Dei tui.
4Non vocáberis ultra Derelícta,*
  et terra tua non vocábitur ámplius Desoláta;
sed vocáberis Beneplácitum meum in ea,*
  et terra tua Nupta,
quia complácuit Dómino in te,*
  et terra tua erit nupta.
5Nam ut iúvenis uxórem ducit vírginem,*
  ita ducent te fílii tui;
ut gaudet sponsus super sponsam,*
  ita gaudébit super te Deus tuus.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Dóminus germinávit iustítiam et laudem coram univérsis géntibus, allelúia.
CanticleIsaiah 61-62
The prophet rejoices over the new Jerusalem
The Lord will make justice and praise spring up in the sight of the nations. Alleluia.
I will rejoice with joy in the Lord,
  and my spirit shall be joyful in my God,
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation
  and wrapped me round with the robe of justice,
like a bridegroom decked with a crown,
  like a bride adorned with her jewels.
Just as the earth sends up its shoots,
  and the garden makes its seeds to sprout,
so the Lord God will make justice spring up
  and praise before all the nations.
For Zion’s sake I will not be silent,
  for the sake of Jerusalem I will not be still
until her justice comes forth as brightness,
  and her salvation is lit up like a torch.
And the Gentiles shall see your justice,
  and all the kings see your glory.
You shall be called by a new name,
  chosen by the mouth of the Lord.
You shall be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord,
  a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
No longer called “Forsaken,”
  your land no longer called “Desolate,”
you will be called “My pleasure in her,”
  and your land “The Wedded”;
for the Lord has been well pleased with you,
  and your land will receive its bridegroom.
For as a young man takes a virgin to wife,
  so will your sons take you;
and as a husband takes joy in his spouse,
  so your God will rejoice at you.
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.
The Lord will make justice and praise spring up in the sight of the nations. Alleluia.

Ps 145:1-10
Sperantium in Dominum beatitudo

Laudamus Dominum in vita nostra, id est in moribus nostris” (Arnobius).

Regnábit Dóminus in sǽcula, Deus tuus, Sion, allelúia.
1Lauda, ánima mea, Dóminum;†
  2laudábo Dóminum in vita mea,*
  psallam Deo meo, quámdiu fúero.
3Nolíte confídere in princípibus,*
  in fíliis hóminum, in quibus non est salus.
4Exíbit spíritus eius et revertétur in terram suam;*
  in illa die períbunt cogitatiónes eórum.
5Beátus, cuius Deus Iacob est adiútor,*
  cuius spes in Dómino Deo suo,
6qui fecit cælum et terram,*
  mare et ómnia, quæ in eis sunt;
qui custódit veritátem in sǽculum,†
  7facit iudícium oppréssis,*
  dat escam esuriéntibus.
Dóminus solvit compedítos,*
  8Dóminus illúminat cæcos,
Dóminus érigit depréssos,*
  Dóminus díligit iustos,
9Dóminus custódit ádvenas,†
  pupíllum et víduam susténtat*
  et viam peccatórum dispérdit.
10Regnábit Dóminus in sǽcula,*
  Deus tuus, Sion, in generatiónem et generatiónem.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Regnábit Dóminus in sǽcula, Deus tuus, Sion, allelúia.
Psalm 145 (146)
The blessedness of those who hope in the Lord
The Lord will reign for ever. He is your God, O Sion. Alleluia.
Praise the Lord, my soul.
  I will praise the Lord all my life,
  make music to my God as long as I exist.
Do not trust in princes to save you,
  they are only sons of men.
One day their breath will leave them, they will return to the ground;
  on that day perish all their plans.
Happy the one whose help is the God of Jacob,
  whose hope is in the Lord his God,
who made heaven and earth and all that is in them,
  who keeps faith for ever,
  who gives justice to the oppressed,
  who gives food to the hungry.
The Lord frees prisoners,
  he gives light to the blind,
  he raises the fallen.
The Lord loves the upright, cares for strangers,
  sustains orphans and widows;
  but the wicked he sends astray.
The Lord will reign for all ages,
  your God, O Zion, from generation to generation.
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.
The Lord will reign for ever. He is your God, O Sion. Alleluia.

Lectio brevisRom 6:8-11
Si mórtui sumus cum Christo, crédimus quia simul étiam vivémus cum eo; sciéntes quod Christus suscitátus ex mórtuis iam non móritur, mors illi ultra non dominátur. Quod enim mórtuus est, peccáto mórtuus est semel; quod autem vivit, vivit Deo. Ita et vos existimáte vos mórtuos quidem esse peccáto, vivéntes autem Deo in Christo Iesu.
Short ReadingRomans 6:8-11 ©
We believe that having died with Christ we shall return to life with him: Christ, as we know, having been raised from the dead will never die again. Death has no power over him any more. When he died, he died, once for all, to sin, so his life now is life with God; and in that way, you too must consider yourselves to be dead to sin but alive for God in Christ Jesus.

Canticum
De Messia eiusque præcursore
Ego lux in mundum veni, ut omnis qui credit in me in ténebris non máneat, dicit Dóminus, allelúia.
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,*

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*

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
I, the Light, have come into the world, so that whoever believes in me will stay in the darkness no more. 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.
I, the Light, have come into the world, so that whoever believes in me will stay in the darkness no more. Alleluia.
