Hymnus
Iam surgit hora tértia,
qua Christus ascéndit crucem;
nil ínsolens mens cógitet,
inténdat afféctum precis.
Qui corde Christum súscipit,
innóxium sensum gerit
votísque præstat sédulis
Sanctum meréri Spíritum.
Hæc hora, quæ finem dedit
diri vetérno críminis;
hinc iam beáta témpora
cœpére Christi grátia.
Iesu, tibi sit glória,
qui morte victa prǽnites,
cum Patre et almo Spíritu,
in sempitérna sǽcula. Amen.
Hymn
Come, Holy Spirit, live in us
With God the Father and the Son,
And grant us your abundant grace
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.
Most blessèd Trinity of love,
For whom the heart of man was made,
To you be praise in timeless song,
And everlasting homage paid.

Psalmus 118:137-144
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
137Iustus es, Dómine,*
  et rectum iudícium tuum.
138Mandásti in iustítia testimónia tua*
  et in veritáte nimis.
139Consúmpsit me zelus meus,*
  quia oblíti sunt verba tua inimíci mei.
140Ignítum elóquium tuum veheménter,*
  et servus tuus diléxit illud.
141Adulescéntulus sum ego et contémptus;*
  mandáta tua non sum oblítus.
142Iustítia tua iustítia in ætérnum,*
  et lex tua véritas.
143Tribulátio et angústia invenérunt me;*
  præcépta tua delectátio mea est.
144Iustítia testimónia tua in ætérnum;*
  intelléctum da mihi, et vivam.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.

Psalm 118(119): 137-144
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
Lord, you are just
  and your judgements are right.
You have made your decrees with justice
  and absolute truth.
I am consumed by zeal
  because my enemies have forgotten your words.
Your promises have been tested in the fire,
  and your servant delights in them.
I am not yet strong, no-one respects me,
  but I have not forgotten your precepts.
Your justice is justice forever,
  and your law is truth.
Trouble and suffering are my lot,
  but your commandments are my delight.
Your decrees are righteous for ever.
  Give me understanding, and I shall live.
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.

Psalmus 87:2-8
Hominis graviter ægrotantis oratio
Hæc est hora vestra et potestas tenebrarum” (Lc 22, 53).
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
2Dómine, Deus salútis meæ,*
  in die clamávi et nocte coram te.
3Intret in conspéctu tuo orátio mea;*
  inclína aurem tuam ad precem meam.
4Quia repléta est malis ánima mea,*
  et vita mea inférno appropinquávit.
5Æstimátus sum cum descendéntibus in lacum,*
  factus sum sicut homo sine adiutório.
6Inter mórtuos liber,*
  sicut vulneráti dormiéntes in sepúlcris;
quorum non es memor ámplius,*
  et ipsi de manu tua abscíssi sunt.
7Posuísti me in lacu inferióri,*
  in tenebrósis et in umbra mortis.
8Super me gravátus est furor tuus,*
  et omnes fluctus tuos induxísti super me.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
Psalm 87 (88)
The prayer of one gravely ill
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
Lord God, my saviour,
  I have cried out to you by day and by night.
Let my prayer come before you:
  turn your ear to my request.
For my soul is full of evils,
  my life has come close to its end.
I am counted with those who go down to the pit:
  I am left without help.
I am one of the dead,
  like the murdered who sleep in their tombs,
who lie there forgotten,
  cut off from your care.
You have thrust me down into the pit,
  to the gloom and the shadow of death.
Your anger weighs heavy upon me;
  you have drowned me under your waves.
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.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

Psalmus 87:9-19
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
9Longe fecísti notos meos a me,*
  posuísti me abominatiónem eis;
conclúsus sum et non egrédiar.*
  10Oculi mei languérunt præ afflictióne.
Clamávi ad te, Dómine, tota die,*
  expándi ad te manus meas.
11Numquid mórtuis fácies mirabília,*
  aut surgent umbræ et confitebúntur tibi?
12Numquid narrábit áliquis in sepúlcro misericórdiam tuam*
  et veritátem tuam in loco perditiónis?
13Numquid cognoscéntur in ténebris mirabília tua*
  et iustítia tua in terra obliviónis?
14Et ego ad te, Dómine, clamávi,*
  et mane orátio mea prævéniet te.
15Ut quid, Dómine, repéllis ánimam meam,*
  abscóndis fáciem tuam a me?
16Pauper sum ego et móriens a iuventúte mea;*
  portávi pavóres tuos et conturbátus sum.
17Super me transiérunt iræ tuæ,*
  et terróres tui excidérunt me.
18Circuiérunt me sicut aqua tota die,*
  circumdedérunt me simul.
19Elongásti a me amícum et próximum,*
  et noti mei sunt ténebræ.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.
Psalm 87 (88)
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
You have taken my friends away from me:
  you have made me hateful in their sight,
  I am shut in, I may not go out.
My eyes are weak from my sufferings.
I have called to you, Lord, all the day;
  I have stretched out my hands to you.
Is it for the dead that you perform your wonders?
  Will the ghosts rise up and proclaim you?
In the tomb, will they tell of your kindness?
  Will they tell of your faithfulness in the place of the lost?
Will your wonders be known in the darkness,
  or your righteousness in the land of oblivion?
And so I have called out to you, Lord,
  and in the morning my prayer will come before you.
With what purpose, Lord, do you reject my soul?
  Why do you hide your face from me?
I am poor; from my youth I have been dying;
  I have borne the terrors you sent, I am lost in confusion.
Your anger has overrun me, your terrors have broken me:
  they have flowed round me like water,
  they have besieged me all the day long.
You have taken my friends and those close to me:
  all I have left is shadows.
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.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
