Hymnus
Optátus votis ómnium
sacrátus illúxit dies,
quo Christus, mundi spes, Deus,
conscéndit cælos árduos.
Magni triúmphum prœ́lii,
mundi perémpto príncipe,
Patris præséntans vúltibus
victrícis carnis glóriam,
In nube fertur lúcida
et spem facit credéntibus,
iam paradísum réserans
quem protoplásti cláuserant.
O grande cunctis gáudium,
quod partus nostræ Vírginis,
post sputa, flagra, post crucem
patérnæ sedi iúngitur.
Agámus ergo grátias
nostræ salútis víndici,
nostrum quod corpus véxerit
sublíme ad cæli régiam.
Sit nobis cum cæléstibus
commúne manens gáudium:
illis, quod semet óbtulit,
nobis, quod se non ábstulit.
Nunc, Christe, scandens ǽthera
ad te cor nostrum súbleva,
tuum Patrísque Spíritum
emíttens nobis cǽlitus. Amen.
Hymn
Eternal Monarch, King most high,
whose blood hath brought redemption nigh,
by whom the death of Death was wrought,
and conquering Grace’s battle fought.
Ascending to the throne of might,
and seated at the Father’s right,
all power in heaven is Jesus’ own,
that here his manhood had not known.
That so, in nature’s triple frame,
each heavenly and each earthly name,
and things in hell’s abyss abhorred,
may bend the knee and own him Lord.
Yea, angels tremble when they see
how changed is our humanity;
that flesh hath purged what flesh had stained,
and God, the flesh of God, hath reigned.
Be thou our joy and strong defence,
who art our future recompense:
so shall the light that springs from thee
be ours through all eternity.
O risen Christ, ascended Lord,
all praise to thee let earth accord,
who art, while endless ages run,
with Father and with Spirit one.

Psalmus 50:3-21
Miserere mei, Deus
Renovari spiritu mentis vestræ et induere novum hominem” (Eph 4, 23-24).
Amplius lava me, Dómine, ab iniustítia mea, allelúia.
3Miserére mei, Deus,*
  secúndum misericórdiam tuam;
et secúndum multitúdinem miseratiónum tuárum*
  dele iniquitátem meam.
4Amplius lava me ab iniquitáte mea*
  et a peccáto meo munda me.
5Quóniam iniquitátem meam ego cognósco,*
  et peccátum meum contra me est semper.
6Tibi, tibi soli peccávi*
  et malum coram te feci,
ut iustus inveniáris in senténtia tua*
  et æquus in iudício tuo.
7Ecce enim in iniquitáte generátus sum,*
  et in peccáto concépit me mater mea.
8Ecce enim veritátem in corde dilexísti*
  et in occúlto sapiéntiam manifestásti mihi.
9Aspérges me hyssópo, et mundábor;*
  lavábis me, et super nivem dealbábor.
10Audíre me fácies gáudium et lætítiam,*
  et exsultábunt ossa, quæ contrivísti.
11Avérte fáciem tuam a peccátis meis*
  et omnes iniquitátes meas dele.
12Cor mundum crea in me, Deus,*
  et spíritum firmum ínnova in viscéribus meis.
13Ne proícias me a fácie tua*
  et spíritum sanctum tuum ne áuferas a me.
14Redde mihi lætítiam salutáris tui*
  et spíritu promptíssimo confírma me.
15Docébo iníquos vias tuas,*
  et ímpii ad te converténtur.
16Líbera me de sanguínibus, Deus, Deus salútis meæ,*
  et exsultábit lingua mea iustítiam tuam.
17Dómine, lábia mea apéries,*
  et os meum annuntiábit laudem tuam.
18Non enim sacrifício delectáris,*
  holocáustum, si ófferam, non placébit.
19Sacrifícium Deo spíritus contribulátus,*
  cor contrítum et humiliátum, Deus, non despícies.
20Benígne fac, Dómine, in bona voluntáte tua Sion,*
  ut ædificéntur muri Ierúsalem.
21Tunc acceptábis sacrifícium iustítiæ, oblatiónes et holocáusta;*
  tunc impónent super altáre tuum vítulos.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Amplius lava me, Dómine, ab iniustítia mea, allelúia.
Psalm 50 (51)
God, have mercy on me
O Lord, wash me more and more from my guilt. Alleluia.
Take pity on me, Lord, in your mercy;
  in your abundance of mercy wipe out my guilt.
Wash me ever more from my guilt
  and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know how guilty I am:
  my sin is always before me.
Against you, you alone have I sinned,
  and I have done evil in your sight.
Know this, so that you may give just sentence
  and an unbiased judgement.
See, I was conceived in guilt,
  in sin my mother conceived me;
but you love truth in the heart,
  and deep within me you have shown me your wisdom.
You will sprinkle me with hyssop, and I will be made clean;
  you will wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
You will make me hear the sound of joy and gladness;
  the bones you have crushed will rejoice.
Turn your face away from my sins
  and wipe out all my transgressions;
create a pure heart in me, God,
  put a steadfast spirit into me.
Do not send me away from your presence,
  or withdraw your holy spirit from me;
give me again the joy of your salvation,
  and be ready to strengthen me with your spirit.
I will teach the unjust your ways,
  and the impious will return to you.
Free me from the guilt of bloodshed, God, God my saviour,
  and my voice will glory in your justice.
Open my lips, Lord,
  and my mouth will proclaim your praise;
for you do not delight in sacrifices:
  if I offered you a burnt offering, it would not please you.
The true sacrifice is a broken spirit:
  a contrite and humble heart, O God, you will not refuse.
Be pleased, Lord, to look kindly on Zion,
  so that the walls of Jerusalem can be rebuilt,
Then indeed you will accept the proper sacrifices, gifts and burnt offerings;
  then indeed will bullocks be laid upon your altar.
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.
O Lord, wash me more and more from my guilt. Alleluia.

Canticum
Jeremiah 14:17-21
Lamentatio populi tempore famis et belli
Appropinquavit regnum Dei; pænitemini et credite Evangelio” (Mc 1, 15).
Christus peccáta nostra pértulit in córpore suo super lignum, allelúia.
17Dedúcant óculi mei lácrimam per noctem et diem,*
  et non táceant,
quóniam contritióne magna contríta est virgo fília pópuli mei,*
  plaga péssima veheménter.
18Si egréssus fúero ad agros, ecce occísi gládio;*
  et si introíero in civitátem, ecce attenuáti fame:
prophéta quoque et sacérdos*
  abiérunt per terram nesciéntes.
19Numquid proíciens abiecísti Iudam,*
  aut Sion abomináta est ánima tua?
Quare ergo percussísti nos,*
  ita ut nulla sit sánitas?
Exspectávimus pacem, et non est bonum,*
  et tempus curatiónis, et ecce turbátio.
20Cognóvimus, Dómine, impietátes nostras,†
  iniquitátes patrum nostrórum,*
  quia peccávimus tibi.
21Ne des nos in oppróbrium propter nomen tuum,*
  ne fácias contuméliam sólio glóriæ tuæ;
recordáre,*
  ne írritum fácias fœdus tuum nobíscum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Christus peccáta nostra pértulit in córpore suo super lignum, allelúia.
CanticleJeremiah 14
Lamentation of the people in the time of famine and war
Christ bore our sins in his own body on the cross. Alleluia.
Let my eyes shed tears, night and day, let them never cease,
  for the daughter of my people is afflicted with a great affliction,
  with the worst of all wounds.
If I go out into the fields – behold, those slain by the sword;
  if I go into the city – behold, those wasted by famine.
Prophet and priest go through the land, they know nothing.
Surely you have not rejected Judah, thrust him from you?
Surely Zion has not become hateful to your heart?
Why have you struck us down beyond all hope of healing?
We have looked for peace, but no good came;
  we have looked for the time of healing, but trouble came instead.
We acknowledge, O Lord, our wickedness, and the evil done by our fathers:
  we acknowledge that we have sinned.
Do not make us a reproach, for your name’s sake,
  and do not make us a disgrace before the throne of your glory.
Remember the covenant you made with us: do not bring it to an end.
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 bore our sins in his own body on the cross. Alleluia.

Psalmus 99:1-5
Gaudium in templum ingredientium
Redemptos iubet Dominus victoriæ carmen canere” (S. Athanasius).
Introíte in conspéctu Dómini in exsultatióne, allelúia.
2Iubiláte Dómino, omnis terra,*
  servíte Dómino in lætítia;
introíte in conspéctu eius*
  in exsultatióne.
3Scitóte quóniam Dóminus ipse est Deus;†
  ipse fecit nos, et ipsíus sumus,*
  pópulus eius et oves páscuæ eius.
4Introíte portas eius in confessióne,†
  átria eius in hymnis,*
  confitémini illi, benedícite nómini eius.
5Quóniam suávis est Dóminus;†
  in ætérnum misericórdia eius,*
  et usque in generatiónem et generatiónem véritas eius.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Introíte in conspéctu Dómini in exsultatióne, allelúia.
Psalm 99 (100)
Enter the Temple with joy
Come before the Lord, singing for joy. Alleluia.
Rejoice in the Lord, all the earth,
  and serve him with joy.
Exult as you enter his presence.
Know that the Lord is God.
He made us and we are his
 – his people, the sheep of his flock.
Cry out his praises as you enter his gates,
  fill his courtyards with songs.
Proclaim him and bless his name;
  for the Lord is our delight.
His mercy lasts for ever,
  his faithfulness through all the ages.
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.
Come before the Lord, singing for joy. Alleluia.

Lectio brevisActs 5:30-32
Deus patrum nostrórum suscitávit Iesum, quem vos interemístis suspendéntes in ligno; hunc Deus Príncipem et Salvatórem exaltávit déxtera sua ad dandam pæniténtiam Israel et remissiónem peccatórum. Et nos sumus testes horum verbórum, et Spíritus Sanctus, quem dedit Deus obœdiéntibus sibi.
Short ReadingActs 5:30-32 ©
It was the God of our ancestors who raised up Jesus, but it was you who had him executed by hanging on a tree. By his own right hand God has now raised him up to be leader and saviour, to give repentance and forgiveness of sins through him to Israel. We are witnesses to all this, we and the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him.

Benedíctus Dóminus Deus Israel,*
  quia visitávit et fecit redemptiónem plebi suæ

  in remissiónem peccatórum eórum,
per víscera misericórdiæ Dei nostri,*

The Messiah and his forerunner
Jesus Christ died and has risen from the dead; he sits at the right hand of God, where he lives for ever, making intercession for us, 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.
Jesus Christ died and has risen from the dead; he sits at the right hand of God, where he lives for ever, making intercession for us, alleluia.
