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.
Stanbrook Abbey Hymnal

Wholeheartedly I have sought you:
  do not let me stray from your commandments.

  so as not to sin against you.
Blessed are you, O Lord:

My lips have counted

Ps 27:1-3,6-9
Supplicatio et gratiarum actio

Pater, gratias ago tibi quoniam audisti me” (Io 11, 41).

1Ad te, Dómine, clamábo;*
  Deus meus, ne síleas a me.
Nequándo táceas a me,*
  et assimilábor descendéntibus in lacum.
2Exáudi vocem deprecatiónis meæ, dum clamo ad te,*
  dum extóllo manus meas ad templum sanctum tuum.
3Ne simul trahas me cum peccatóribus*
  et cum operántibus iniquitátem.
Qui loquúntur pacem cum próximo suo,*
  mala autem in córdibus eórum.
6Benedíctus Dóminus,†
  quóniam exaudívit vocem deprecatiónis meæ;*
  7Dóminus adiútor meus et protéctor meus,
in ipso sperávit cor meum, et adiútus sum,†
  et exsultávit cor meum,*
  et in cántico meo confitébor ei.
8Dóminus fortitúdo plebi suæ*
  et refúgium salvatiónum christi sui est.
9Salvum fac pópulum tuum et bénedic hereditáti tuæ*
  et pasce eos et extólle illos usque in ætérnum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*

Amen.
Psalm 27 (28)
Supplication and thanksgiving
To you, Lord, I make my cry.
  My God, do not refuse to speak to me.
Do not be silent
  or I will be like those who go down into the underworld.
Listen to my cry as I plead with you,
  as I stretch out my hand to your holy temple.
Do not drag me away like the wicked,
  like those who do evil.
They speak peace to their neighbour
  but evil is in their hearts.
Blessed be the Lord, for he has heard my plea.
  God is my help and my protection.
My heart hoped in him, and I received help.
  My heart rejoices, I will sing songs to him.
The Lord is the strength of his people,
  a safe refuge for his anointed.
Lord, save your people
  and bless your inheritance.
Pasture them and carry them
  for all eternity.
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.

Ps 115:10-19
Gratiarum actio in templo

Per ipsum (Christum) offeramus hostiam laudis semper Deo” (Hebr 13, 15).

10Crédidi, étiam cum locútus sum:*
  «Ego humiliátus sum nimis».
11Ego dixi in trepidatióne mea:*
  «Omnis homo mendax».
12Quid retríbuam Dómino*
  pro ómnibus, quæ retríbuit mihi?
13Cálicem salutáris accípiam*
  et nomen Dómini invocábo.
14Vota mea Dómino reddam*
  coram omni pópulo eius.
15Pretiósa in conspéctu Dómini*
  mors sanctórum eius.
16O Dómine, ego servus tuus,*
  ego servus tuus et fílius ancíllæ tuæ.
Dirupísti víncula mea:†
  17tibi sacrificábo hóstiam laudis*
  et nomen Dómini invocábo.
18Vota mea Dómino reddam*
  coram omni pópulo eius,
19in átriis domus Dómini,*
  in médio tui, Ierúsalem.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.

Christus surréxit a mórtuis, iam non móritur, allelúia.
Psalm 115 (116B)
Thanksgiving in the Temple
Still I trusted, even when I said
  “I am greatly afflicted,”
when I said in my terror,
  “all men are liars.”
How shall I repay the Lord
  for all he has done for me?
I will take up the cup of salvation
  and call on the name of the Lord.
I will fulfil my vows to the Lord
  before all his people.
Precious in the sight of the Lord
  is the death of his faithful.
O Lord, I am your servant,
  your maidservant’s son.
You have torn apart my chains:
  I will make you a sacrifice of praise,
  I will call on the name of the Lord.
I will fulfil my vows to the Lord
  before all his people,
in the courts of the house of the Lord,
  within your walls, Jerusalem.
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.
Christ has risen from the dead: he is no longer subject to death, alleluia.

COMPLEMENTARY PSALMS


Ps 119:1-7
Desiderium pacis

In tribulatione patientes, orationi instantes” (Rom 12, 12).

Christus surréxit a mórtuis, iam non móritur, allelúia.
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.
Amen.
Psalm 119 (120)
Longing for peace
Christ has risen from the dead: he is no longer subject to death, alleluia.
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.

Non esurient amplius, neque sitient amplius, neque cadet super illos sol neque ullus æstus” (Ap 7, 16).

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*

The guardian of the people
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.

Accessistis ad Sion montem et civitatem Dei viventis, Ierusalem cælestem” (Hebr 12, 22).

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!».

Psalm 121 (122)
Jerusalem, the holy city
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.
Christ has risen from the dead: he is no longer subject to death, alleluia.
