Hymnus
Ætérne rerum cónditor,
noctem diémque qui regis,
et témporum das témpora
ut álleves fastídium,
Præco diéi iam sonat,
noctis profúndæ pérvigil,
noctúrna lux viántibus
a nocte noctem ségregans.
Hoc excitátus lúcifer
solvit polum calígine;
hoc omnis errónum chorus
vias nocéndi déserit.
Hoc nauta vires cólligit
pontíque mitéscunt freta;
hoc, ipse Petra Ecclésiæ,
canénte, culpam díluit.
Iesu, labántes réspice
et nos vidéndo córrige;
si réspicis, lapsus cadunt
fletúque culpa sólvitur.
Tu, lux, refúlge sénsibus
mentísque somnum díscute;
te nostra vox primum sonet
et vota solvámus tibi.
Sit, Christe, rex piíssime,
tibi Patríque glória
cum Spíritu Paráclito,
in sempitérna sǽcula. Amen.
Hymn
Christ is the world’s redeemer,
The lover of the pure,
The font of heavenly wisdom,
Our trust and hope secure,
The armour of his soldiers,
The Lord of earth and sky,
Our health while we are living,
Our life when we shall die.
Down in the realm of darkness,
He lay a captive bound,
But at the hour appointed
He rose a victor crowned.
And now, to heaven ascended,
He sits upon a throne,
Whence he had ne’er departed,
His Father’s and his own.
All glory to the Father,
The unbegotten One,
All honour be to Jesus,
His sole-begotten Son;
And to the Holy Spirit,
The perfect Trinity,
Let all the worlds give answer,
Amen — so let it be.

Psalmus 92:1-5
Magnificentia Domini creatoris
Regnavit Dominus, Deus noster omnipotens. Gaudeamus et exsultemus et demus gloriam ei” (Ap 19, 6. 7).

1Dóminus regnávit! Decórem indútus est;*
  indútus est Dóminus, fortitúdine præcínxit se.
Etenim firmávit orbem terræ,*
  qui non commovébitur.
2Firmáta sedes tua ex tunc,*
  a sǽculo tu es.
3Elevavérunt flúmina, Dómine,†
  elevavérunt flúmina vocem suam,*
  elevavérunt flúmina fragórem suum.
4Super voces aquárum multárum,†
  super poténtes elatiónes maris,*
  potens in altis Dóminus.
5Testimónia tua credibília facta sunt nimis;*
  domum tuam decet sanctitúdo, Dómine, in longitúdinem diérum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Mirábilis in altis Dóminus, allelúia.
Psalm 92 (93)
The magnificence of the Creator
The Lord is wonderful on high. Alleluia.
The Lord reigns! He is robed in splendour,
  clothed in glory and wrapped round in might.
He set the earth on its foundations:
  it will not be shaken.
Your throne is secure from the beginning;
  from the beginning of time, Lord, you are.
The rivers have raised, O Lord,
  the rivers have raised their voices.
  The rivers have raised their clamour.
Over the voices of many waters,
  over the powerful swell of the sea,
  you are the Lord, powerful on high.
All your promises are to be trusted:
  and holy is your habitation,
  O Lord, to the end of time.
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 is wonderful on high. Alleluia.

De Messia eiusque præcursore
Vobis datum est nosse mystérium regni cælórum: céteris autem in parábolis, dixit Iesus discípulis suis.
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*

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
‘The mysteries of the kingdom are revealed to you; for the rest there are only parables,’ said Jesus to his disciples. (Year A)
Or: The disciples set out to preach repentance; and they anointed many sick people with oil and cured them.
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.

Preces
Deum, qui misit Spíritum Sanctum, ut fíeret lux beatíssima ómnium córdium, deprecémur instántes:
Illúmina pópulum tuum, Dómine.
Benedíctus es, Deus, lux nostra,
— qui propter glóriam tuam ad diem novum nos perveníre fecísti.
Tu, qui per resurrectiónem Fílii tui mundum illuminásti,
— per Ecclésiam tuam in omnes hómines hoc lumen effúnde.
Qui Unigéniti tui discípulos per tuum Spíritum clarificásti,
— hunc emítte in Ecclésiam tuam, quæ sit tibi fidélis.
O lumen géntium, meménto eórum, qui adhuc in ténebris commorántur,
— óculos áperi cordis eórum, ut te solum Deum verum agnóscant.
Prayers and intercessions
We pray to the Father, who sent his Holy Spirit to bring new light to the hearts of us all.
Lord, send us the light of your Spirit.
Blessed are you, the source of all light;
  all creation rightly gives you praise.
Lord, send us the light of your Spirit.
Through the resurrection of your Son, the world is filled with light:
  through the gift of your Spirit, may your light shine out in the Church.
Lord, send us the light of your Spirit.
Through your Holy Spirit, the disciples remembered all that Jesus taught them:
  pour out your Spirit on the Church that she may be faithful to that teaching.
Lord, send us the light of your Spirit.
Light of all the nations, look upon those who live in darkness:
  open their hearts to accept you as the one true God.
Lord, send us the light of your Spirit.

Pater noster, qui es in cælis:
sanctificétur nomen tuum;
advéniat regnum tuum;
fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidiánum da nobis hódie;
et dimítte nobis débita nostra,
sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris;
et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem;
sed líbera nos a malo.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
  hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
  Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
  and forgive us our trespasses,
  as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
  but deliver us from evil.

Deus, qui errántibus, ut in viam possint redíre, veritátis tuæ lumen osténdis, da cunctis, qui christiána professióne censéntur, et illa respúere, quæ huic inimíca sunt nómini, et ea, quæ sunt apta, sectári. Per Dóminum.
God and Father,
  to those who go astray
  you reveal the light of your truth
  and enable them to return to the right path.
Grant that all who have received the grace of baptism
  may strive to be worthy of their Christian calling
  and reject everything opposed to it.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

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

AMEN
