Come, Holy Spirit, live in us
With God the Father and the Son,

To sanctify and make us one.
May mind and tongue made strong in love
Your praise throughout the world proclaim,
And may that love within our hearts
Set fire to others with its flame.

For whom the heart of man was made,
To you be praise in timeless song,
And everlasting homage paid.

Hæc est caritas Dei, ut mandata eius servemus” (1 Io 5, 3).

  qui ámbulant in lege Dómini.

Psalm 118(119): 1-8
The word of the Lord in the law
Blessed are they who live by the law of the Lord.
Happy are they who follow the pure path,
  who walk in the law of the Lord.
Happy are they who obey his decrees
  and seek him out with all their heart.
They do not do evil:
  they walk in his paths.
You have made your commandments
  for us to obey them.
If only I can direct my paths
  to conform to your statutes!
Then I will not be shamed
  as I hold to your precepts.
I shall proclaim you by right living
  since I have learnt your just decrees.
I shall hold close to your statutes:
  Lord, never abandon me.
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.
Blessed are they who live by the law of the Lord.

Ps 12:2-7
Lamentatio iusti Domino fidentis
Deus spei repleat vos omni gaudio” (Rom 15, 13).
Exsultábit cor meum in salutári tuo.
2Usquequo, Dómine, obliviscéris me in finem?*
  Usquequo avértes fáciem tuam a me?
3Usquequo ponam consília in ánima mea,†
  dolórem in corde meo per diem?*
  Usquequo exaltábitur inimícus meus super me?
4Réspice et exáudi me, Dómine Deus meus.*
  Illúmina óculos meos, ne quando obdórmiam in morte,
5ne quando dicat inimícus meus:†
  «Præválui advérsus eum!»;*
  neque exsúltent, qui tríbulant me, si motus fúero.
6Ego autem in misericórdia tua sperávi.†
  Exsultábit cor meum in salutári tuo,*
  cantábo Dómino, qui bona tríbuit mihi.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Exsultábit cor meum in salutári tuo.
Psalm 12 (13)
Lament of a righteous man who trusts in God
My heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
How long, O Lord, will you forget me?
  How long will you turn your face from me?
How long must I bear grief in my soul,
  how long must I carry sadness in my heart
  by day and by night?
How long will my enemy be stronger than me?
Turn to me and hear me, O Lord my God.
  Give light to my eyes and save me from the sleep of death.
Or my enemy will say, ‘I have prevailed against him!’
  and those who torment me will rejoice at my stumbling.
But I put my hope in your loving kindness.
  My heart will rejoice at your saving power.
  I shall sing to the Lord, who has granted good things to me.
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.
My heart shall rejoice in your salvation.

Ps 13:1-7
Impiorum stultitia
Ubi abundavit peccatum, superabundavit gratia” (Rom 5, 20).
Conclúsit Deus ómnia sub peccáto, ut ómnium misereátur.
1Dixit insípiens in corde suo: «Non est Deus».†
  Corrúpti sunt et abominatiónes operáti sunt;*
  non est qui fáciat bonum.
2Dóminus de cælo prospéxit super fílios hóminum,*
  ut vidéret si est intéllegens aut requírens Deum.
3Omnes declinavérunt, simul corrúpti sunt;*
  non est qui fáciat bonum, non est usque ad unum.
4Nonne scient omnes, qui operántur iniquitátem,*
  qui dévorant plebem meam sicut escam panis?
Dóminum non invocavérunt,†
  5illic trepidavérunt timóre,*
  quóniam Deus cum generatióne iusta est.
6Vos consílium ínopis confundétis,*
  Dóminus autem spes eius est.
7Quis dabit ex Sion salutáre Israel?†
  Cum convérterit Dóminus captivitátem plebis suæ,*
  exsultábit Iacob et lætábitur Israel.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Conclúsit Deus ómnia sub peccáto, ut ómnium misereátur.
Psalm 13 (14)
The folly of the lawless
God made all men prisoners of disobedience, that he might show mercy to them all.
The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’.
  They are corrupt and they do vile things:
  not one of them does good.
From heaven the Lord looks down on the sons of men
  to see if any understand, and seek God.
All have fallen away, each as corrupt as the other.
  Not one of them does good, not even one.
They must know what they are doing, those who do evil,
  who eat up my people like so much bread.
They did not call on the Lord,
  so they tremble with fear.
  for God is on the side of the righteous.
You persecute the poor,
  but God is on the side of the poor.
Who will bring Israel salvation from Zion?
  When the Lord delivers his people from captivity,
  Jacob will exult and Israel will rejoice.
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.
God made all men prisoners of disobedience, that he might show mercy to them all.

Ps 119:1-7
Desiderium pacis
In tribulatione patientes, orationi instantes” (Rom 12, 12).
Clamávi et Dóminus exaudívit me.
1Ad Dóminum, cum tribulárer, clamávi,*
  et exaudívit me.
2Dómine, líbera ánimam meam a lábiis mendácii,*
  a lingua dolósa.
3Quid detur tibi aut quid apponátur tibi,*
  lingua dolósa?
4Sagíttæ poténtis acútæ*
  cum carbónibus iuniperórum.
5Heu mihi, quia peregrinátus sum in Mosoch,*
  habitávi ad tabernácula Cedar!
6Multum íncola fuit ánima mea*
  cum his, qui odérunt pacem.
7Ego eram pacíficus;*
  cum loquébar, illi impugnábant me.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.

Psalm 119 (120)
Longing for peace
I called and the Lord answered me.
I was in trouble, and cried to the Lord;
  and he answered me.
Lord, free me from the lips of liars,
  from deceitful tongues.
What will be given you, what will you receive,
  deceitful tongue?
Sharp arrows from the warrior,
  hardened in the flames.
Alas, I am an exile in Meshech;
  I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
My soul has lived too long
  with those who hate peace.
I am for making peace;
  but whenever I spoke, they attacked me.
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 called and the Lord answered me.

Custos populi
Non esurient amplius, neque sitient amplius, neque cadet super illos sol neque ullus æstus” (Ap 7, 16).
Dóminus custódiat intróitum tuum et éxitum tuum.
1Levábo óculos meos in montes:*
  unde véniet auxílium mihi?
2Auxílium meum a Dómino,*
  qui fecit cælum et terram.
3Non dabit in commotiónem pedem tuum,*
  neque dormitábit, qui custódit te.
4Ecce non dormitábit neque dórmiet,*
  qui custódit Israel.
5Dóminus custódit te,†
  Dóminus umbráculum tuum,*
  ad manum déxteram tuam.
6Per diem sol non percútiet te,*
  neque luna per noctem.
7Dóminus custódiet te ab omni malo;*
  custódiet ánimam tuam Dóminus.
8Dóminus custódiet intróitum tuum et éxitum tuum*
  ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum.

Amen.
Dóminus custódiat intróitum tuum et éxitum tuum.
Psalm 120 (121)
The guardian of the people
May the Lord guard your going in and coming out.
I shall lift my eyes to the hills:
  where is my help to come from?
My help will come from the Lord,
  who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip:
  he will not doze, your guardian.
Behold, he will not doze or sleep,
  the guardian of Israel.
The Lord is your guardian, the Lord is your shade;
  he is at your right hand.
By day the sun will not strike you;
  nor the moon by night.
The Lord will guard you from all harm;
  the Lord will guard your life.
The Lord will guard your coming and your going
  both now and for ever.
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.
May the Lord guard your going in and coming out.

Ps 121:1-9
Civitas sancta Ierusalem
Accessistis ad Sion montem et civitatem Dei viventis, Ierusalem cælestem” (Hebr 12, 22).
Lætátus sum in his quæ dicta sunt mihi.
1Lætátus sum in eo quod dixérunt mihi:*
  «In domum Dómini íbimus».
2Stantes iam sunt pedes nostri*
  in portis tuis, Ierúsalem.
3Ierúsalem, quæ ædificáta est ut cívitas,*
  sibi compácta in idípsum.
4Illuc enim ascendérunt tribus, tribus Dómini,*
  testimónium Israel, ad confiténdum nómini Dómini.
5Quia illic sedérunt sedes ad iudícium,*
  sedes domus David.
6Rogáte, quæ ad pacem sunt Ierúsalem:*
  «Secúri sint diligéntes te!
7Fiat pax in muris tuis,*
  et secúritas in túrribus tuis!».
8Propter fratres meos et próximos meos*
  loquar: «Pax in te!».
9Propter domum Dómini Dei nostri*
  exquíram bona tibi.

Psalm 121 (122)
Jerusalem, the holy city
I rejoiced in the things which were said to me.
They filled me with joy when they said,
  “We will go to the house of the Lord.”
Now our feet are standing
  within your gates, Jerusalem.
Jerusalem, built as a city,
  whole and self-contained:
there the tribes have gone up,
  the tribes of the Lord –
the witness of Israel,
  to praise the Lord’s name.
For there are the thrones of justice,
  the thrones of the house of David.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
  “Safety for those who care for you,
peace inside your walls,
  security within your ramparts!”
For my brethren and those near to me I will say
  “Peace be upon you.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
  I will call blessings upon 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.
I rejoiced in the things which were said to me.

CONCLUSION


Lectio brevisIer 17:7-8
Benedíctus vir, qui confídit in Dómino,
Short ReadingJeremiah 17:7-8 ©
A blessing on the man who puts his trust in the Lord, with the Lord for his hope. He is like a tree by the waterside that thrusts its roots to the stream: when the heat comes it feels no alarm, its foliage stays green; it has no worries in a year of drought, and never ceases to bear fruit.

℣. Dóminus non privábit bonis eos qui ámbulant in innocéntia.
℟. Dómine virtútum, beátus homo qui sperat in te.
The Lord will not deny his good things to those who walk in purity.
Blessed is he who trusts in you, Lord of hosts.

Oremus.
  Omnípotens sempitérne Deus, qui Paráclitum Sanctum tuum hora tértia in Apóstolos effudísti, in nos quoque eúndem Spíritum caritátis emítte, ut fidéle tibi coram ómnibus homínibus testimónium præbeámus. Per Christum.
Let us pray.
Almighty, ever-living God,
  who at this third hour sent down your Holy Spirit on the apostles,
send forth that same Spirit of love into our hearts
  so that we may bear faithful witness to you before all mankind.
Through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Benedicámus Dómino.
– Deo grátias.
Let us praise the Lord.
– Thanks be to God.
