Hymnus
Anguláris fundaméntum
lapis Christus missus est,
qui paríetum compáge
in utróque néctitur,
quem Sion sancta suscépit,
in quo credens pérmanet.
Omnis illa Deo sacra
et dilécta cívitas,
plena módulis in laude
et canóre iúbilo,

cum fervóre prǽdicat.
Hoc in templo, summe Deus,

transláti in réquiem.
Glória et honor Deo
usquequáque altíssimo,

Hymn
Blessed city, heavenly Zion,
vision dear of peace and love,
who of living stones up-builded
in the height of heaven above,
now, with angel hosts encircled,
as a bride to earth dost move!
Christ is made the sure foundation,
Christ the head and cornerstone,
chosen of the Lord, and precious,
binding all the Church in one,
holy Zion’s help for ever,
and her confidence alone.
To this temple, where we call thee,
come, O Lord of Hosts, today;
with thy wonted loving-kindness
hear thy servants as they pray;
and thy fullest benediction
shed within its walls alway.
Praise and honour to the Father,
praise and honour to the Son,
praise and honour to the Spirit,
ever Three and ever One:
One in might, and One in glory,
while eternal ages run.

Ps 62:2-9
Anima Dominum sitiens

Ad Deum vigilat, qui opera noctis reicit.

Domus mea domus oratiónis vocábitur.
2Deus, Deus meus es tu,*
  ad te de luce vígilo.
Sitívit in te ánima mea,*
  te desiderávit caro mea.
In terra desérta et árida et inaquósa,†
  3sic in sancto appárui tibi,*
  ut vidérem virtútem tuam et glóriam tuam.
4Quóniam mélior est misericórdia tua super vitas,*
  lábia mea laudábunt te.
5Sic benedícam te in vita mea*
  et in nómine tuo levábo manus meas.
6Sicut ádipe et pinguédine repleátur ánima mea,*
  et lábiis exsultatiónis laudábit os meum.
7Cum memor ero tui super stratum meum,*
  in matutínis meditábor de te,
8quia fuísti adiútor meus,*
  et in velaménto alárum tuárum exsultábo.
9Adhǽsit ánima mea post te,*
  me suscépit déxtera tua.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Domus mea domus oratiónis vocábitur.
Psalm 62 (63)
Thirsting for God
My house will be called a house of prayer.
O God, you are my God, I watch for you from the dawn.
My soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you.
I came to your sanctuary,
  as one in a parched and waterless land,
  so that I could see your might and your glory.
My lips will praise you, for your mercy is better than life itself.
Thus I will bless you throughout my life,
  and raise my hands in prayer to your name;
my soul will be filled as if by rich food,
  and my mouth will sing your praises and rejoice.
I will remember you as I lie in bed,
  I will think of you in the morning,
for you have been my helper,
  and I will take joy in the protection of your wings.
My soul clings to you; your right hand raises me up.
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 house will be called a house of prayer.

Laudáte Dóminum in ecclésia sanctórum.

Psalm 149
The saints rejoice
Praise the Lord in his holy Church.
Sing a new song to the Lord,
  his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel rejoice in its maker,
  and the sons of Zion delight in their king.
Let them praise his name with dancing,
  sing to him with timbrel and lyre,
for the Lord’s favour is upon his people,
  and he will honour the humble with victory.
Let the faithful celebrate his glory,
  rejoice even in their beds,
the praise of God in their throats;
  and swords ready in their hands,
to exact vengeance upon the nations,
  impose punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings in fetters
  and their nobles in manacles of iron,
to carry out the sentence that has been passed:
  this is the glory prepared for all his faithful.
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.
Praise the Lord in his holy Church.

Canticum
De Messia eiusque præcursore
Zachǽe, festínans descénde, quia hódie in domo tua opórtet me manére. At ille festínans descéndit et suscépit illum gaudens in domum suam. Hódie huic dómui salus a Deo facta est.
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*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
‘Zacchaeus, make haste and come down; for I must stay with you today.’ He came down with great haste and received the Lord joyfully in his house. Today salvation has come from God to this house.
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.
‘Zacchaeus, make haste and come down; for I must stay with you today.’ He came down with great haste and received the Lord joyfully in his house. Today salvation has come from God to this house.
