Hymnus
Chorus novæ Ierúsalem
hymni novam dulcédinem
promat, colens cum sóbriis
paschále festum gáudiis,
Quo Christus invíctus leo,
dracóne surgens óbruto,
dum voce viva pérsonat,
a morte functos éxcitat.
Quam devorárat ímprobus,
prædam refúndit tártarus;
captivitáte líbera
Iesum sequúntur ágmina.
Triúmphat ille spléndide
et dignus amplitúdine,
soli políque pátriam
unam facit rem públicam.
Ipsum canéndo súpplices
Regem precémur mílites,
ut in suo claríssimo
nos órdinet palátio.
Esto perénne méntibus
paschále, Iesu, gáudium
et nos renátos grátiæ
tuis triúmphis ággrega.
Iesu, tibi sit glória,
qui morte victa prǽnites,
cum Patre et almo Spíritu,
in sempitérna sǽcula. Amen.
Hymn
Light’s glittering morn bedecks the sky,
Heav’n thunders forth its victor cry:
The glad earth shouts her triumph high,
And groaning hell makes wild reply.
While he, the King of sovereign might,
Treads down death’s strength in death’s despite,
And trampling hell by victor’s right,
Brings forth his sleeping saints to light.
Fast barred beneath the stone of late,
In watch and ward where soldiers wait,
Now shining in triumphant state,
He rises victor from death’s gate.
Hell’s pains are loosed and tears are fled:
Captivity is captive led:
The angel, crowned with light, hath said:
‘The Lord is risen from the dead.’
Author of all, be thou our guide
In this our joy of Eastertide;
Whene’er assaults of death impend,
Thy people strengthen and defend.
To thee who, dead, again dost live,
All glory, Lord, thy people give:
All glory, as is ever meet,
To Father and to Paraclete.

Psalmus 23:1-10
Domini in templum adventus
Christo apertæ sunt portæ cæli propter carnalem eius assumptionem” (S. Irenæus).
Qui descéndit, ipse est et qui ascéndit super omnes cælos, allelúia.
1Dómini est terra et plenitúdo eius,*
  orbis terrárum et qui hábitant in eo.
2Quia ipse super mária fundávit eum*
  et super flúmina firmávit eum.
3Quis ascéndet in montem Dómini,*
  aut quis stabit in loco sancto eius?
4Innocens mánibus et mundo corde,†
  qui non levávit ad vana ánimam suam,*
  nec iurávit in dolum.
5Hic accípiet benedictiónem a Dómino*
  et iustificatiónem a Deo salutári suo.
6Hæc est generátio quæréntium eum,*
  quæréntium fáciem Dei Iacob.
7Attóllite, portæ, cápita vestra,†
  et elevámini, portæ æternáles,*
  et introíbit rex glóriæ.
8Quis est iste rex glóriæ?*
  Dóminus fortis et potens, Dóminus potens in prœ́lio.
9Attóllite, portæ, cápita vestra,†
  et elevámini, portæ æternáles,*
  et introíbit rex glóriæ.
10Quis est iste rex glóriæ?*
  Dóminus virtútum ipse est rex glóriæ.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Qui descéndit, ipse est et qui ascéndit super omnes cælos, allelúia.
Psalm 23 (24)
The Lord comes to his temple
He who came down is he who has now risen higher than all the heavens. Alleluia.
The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness,
  the world and all who live in it.
He himself founded it upon the seas
  and set it firm over the waters.
Who will climb the mountain of the Lord?
  Who will stand in his holy place?
The one who is innocent of wrongdoing and pure of heart,
  who has not given himself to vanities or sworn falsely.
He will receive the blessing of the Lord
  and be justified by God his saviour.
This is the way of those who seek him,
  seek the face of the God of Jacob.
Gates, raise your heads. Stand up, eternal doors,
  and let the king of glory enter.
Who is the king of glory?
The Lord of might and power.
  The Lord, strong in battle.
Gates, raise your heads. Stand up, eternal doors,
  and let the king of glory enter.
Who is the king of glory?
The Lord of hosts
 – he is the king of glory.
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.
He who came down is he who has now risen higher than all the heavens. Alleluia.

CanticumTobit 13:2-8
Deus castigans et salvans
Benedictus Deus et Pater Domini nostri Iesu Christi, qui secundum magnam misericordiam suam regeneravit nos” (1 Petr 1, 3).
Agite dies lætítiæ et confitémini Dómino, allelúia.
2Benedíctus Deus vivens in ævum,†
  et regnum illíus,*
  quia ipse flagéllat et miserétur,
dedúcit usque ad ínferos deórsum†
  et redúcit a perditióne maiestáte sua,*
  et non est qui effúgiat manum eius.
3Confitémini illi, fílii Israel, coram natiónibus,†
  quia ipse dispérsit vos in illis*

Et exaltáte illum coram omni vivénte,†

  ubicúmque dispérsi fuéritis.
6Cum convérsi fuéritis ad illum†
  in toto corde vestro et in tota ánima vestra,*
  ut faciátis coram illo veritátem,
tunc revertétur ad vos*
  et non abscóndet a vobis fáciem suam ámplius.
Et nunc aspícite, quæ fecit vobíscum,*
  et confitémini illi in toto ore vestro.
Benedícite Dóminum iustítiæ*
  et exaltáte regem sæculórum.
Ego in terra captivitátis meæ confíteor illi*
  et osténdo virtútem et maiestátem eius genti peccatórum.
Convertímini, peccatóres,†
  et fácite iustítiam coram illo.*
  Quis scit, si velit vos et fáciat vobis misericórdiam?
7Ego et ánima mea regi cæli lætatiónes dícimus,*
  et ánima mea lætábitur ómnibus diébus vitæ suæ.

Amen.
Agite dies lætítiæ et confitémini Dómino, allelúia.
CanticleTobit 13
God punishes and God saves
Keep these days with joy, and give glory to the Lord. Alleluia.
Blessed be God who lives for ever,
  whose kingdom is eternal:
  for he both punishes and takes pity,
he leads down to the underworld,
  and rescues from perdition;
  no one can escape him.
Give thanks to him before all nations, children of Israel:
  he scattered you among them,
  and there he has made known his greatness.
Give glory to him before all who live:
  he is our Lord, our father,
  and our God for ever.
He will punish you for your transgressions;
  but he will take pity on all your sufferings,
and gather you together from all the nations
  among whom he scattered you.
If you turn back to him
  with all your heart and soul
 – if you keep faithful to him –
he will turn back to you
  and hide his face no longer.
So now look at what he has done with you,
  and praise him with all your might.
Bless the Lord of justice,
  and glorify the eternal King.
In the land of my captivity I trust in him;
  I show his power and majesty to the sinful people.
Turn back, sinners,
  and be upright in his presence
 – perhaps he will forgive you and show you his favour.
I will rejoice in the Lord with all my soul,
  my soul will rejoice as long as it lives.
Bless the Lord, all his chosen ones:
  all people, praise his greatness.
Fill your days with joy
  and proclaim his glory.
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.
Keep these days with joy, and give glory to the Lord. Alleluia.

Psalmus 32:1-22
Laus Domini providentis
Omnia per ipsum facta sunt” (Io 1, 3).
Misericórdia Dómini plena est terra, allelúia.
1Exsultáte, iusti, in Dómino;*
  rectos decet collaudátio.
2Confitémini Dómino in cíthara,*
  in psaltério decem chordárum psállite illi.
3Cantáte ei cánticum novum,*
  bene psállite ei in vociferatióne,
4quia rectum est verbum Dómini,*
  et ómnia ópera eius in fide.
5Díligit iustítiam et iudícium;*
  misericórdia Dómini plena est terra.
6Verbo Dómini cæli facti sunt,*
  et spíritu oris eius omnis virtus eórum.
7Cóngregans sicut in utre aquas maris,*
  ponens in thesáuris abýssos.
8Tímeat Dóminum omnis terra,*
  a fácie autem eius formídent omnes inhabitántes orbem.
9Quóniam ipse dixit, et facta sunt,*
  ipse mandávit, et creáta sunt.
10Dóminus díssipat consília géntium,*
  írritas facit cogitatiónes populórum.
11Consílium autem Dómini in ætérnum manet,*
  cogitatiónes cordis eius in generatióne et generatiónem.
12Beáta gens, cui Dóminus est Deus,*
  pópulus, quem elégit in hereditátem sibi.
13De cælo respéxit Dóminus,*
  vidit omnes fílios hóminum.
14De loco habitáculi sui respéxit*
  super omnes, qui hábitant terram,
15qui finxit singillátim corda eórum,*
  qui intéllegit ómnia ópera eórum.
16Non salvátur rex per multam virtútem,*
  et gigas non liberábitur
in multitúdine virtútis suæ.
17Fallax equus ad salútem,*
  in abundántia autem virtútis suæ non salvábit.
18Ecce óculi Dómini super metuéntes eum,*
  in eos, qui sperant super misericórdia eius,
19ut éruat a morte ánimas eórum*
  et alat eos in fame.
20Anima nostra sústinet Dóminum,*
  quóniam adiútor et protéctor noster est;
21quia in eo lætábitur cor nostrum,*
  et in nómine sancto eius sperávimus.
22Fiat misericórdia tua, Dómine, super nos,*
  quemádmodum sperávimus in te.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Misericórdia Dómini plena est terra, allelúia.
Psalm 32 (33)
The Lord provides
The Lord fills the earth with his love. Alleluia.
Rejoice in the Lord, you just:
  it is good for the upright to praise him.
Proclaim the Lord on the lyre,
  play his song on the ten-stringed harp.
Sing a new song to the Lord,
  sing out your cries of triumph,
for the word of the Lord is truly just,
  and all his actions are faithful.
The Lord loves justice and right judgement;
  the earth is full of his loving kindness.
By the Lord’s word the heavens were made,
  and all their array by the breath of his mouth.
He gathered the seas as if in a bag,
  he stored up the depths in his treasury.
Let every land fear the Lord,
  let all the world be awed at his presence.
For he spoke, and they came into being;
  he commanded, and they were made.
The Lord confounds the counsel of the nations,
  throws the thoughts of the peoples into confusion.
But the Lord’s own counsel stands firm for ever,
  his thoughts last for all generations.
Happy the nation whose lord is God,
  the people he has chosen as his inheritance.
The Lord looks down from the heavens
  and sees all the children of men.
From his dwelling-place he looks
  upon all who inhabit the earth.
He moulded each one of their hearts,
  he understands all that they do.
The king will not be saved by his forces;
  the abundance of his strength will not set the strong man free.
Do not trust a horse to save you,
  whatever its swiftness and strength.
For see, the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,
  upon those who trust in his mercy,
hoping he will save their souls from death
  and their bodies from hunger.
Our souls praise the Lord,
  for he is our help and our protector,
for our hearts rejoice in him,
  and we trust in his holy name.
Lord, show us your loving kindness,
  just as we put our hope in 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.
The Lord fills the earth with his love. Alleluia.

Lectio brevisActs 13:30-33
Deus suscitávit Iesum a mórtuis; qui visus est per dies multos his, qui simul ascénderant cum eo de Galilæa in Ierúsalem, qui nunc sunt testes eius ad plebem. Et nos vobis evangelizámus eam, quæ ad patres promíssio facta est, quóniam hanc Deus adimplévit fíliis eórum, nobis resúscitans Iesum, sicut et in Psalmo secúndo scriptum est: Fílius meus es tu; ego hódie génui te.
Short ReadingActs 13:30-33 ©
God raised Jesus from the dead, and for many days he appeared to those who had accompanied him from Galilee to Jerusalem: and it is these same companions of his who are now his witnesses before our people. We have come here to tell you the Good News. It was to our ancestors that God made the promise but it is to us, their children, that he has fulfilled it, by raising Jesus from the dead. As scripture says in the second psalm: You are my son: today I have become your father.

De Messia eiusque præcursore
Pacem relínquo vobis, allelúia, pacem meam do vobis, allelúia.
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,

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
‘Peace I leave you,’ alleluia; ‘it is my own peace I give you,’ alleluia.
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.
‘Peace I leave you,’ alleluia; ‘it is my own peace I give you,’ alleluia.
