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.

PSALMS OF THE DAY


Psalmus 8:2-10
Maiestas Domini et dignitas hominis
Omnia subiecit sub pedibus eius, et ipsum dedit caput supra omnia Ecclesiæ” (Eph 1, 22).
Christus surréxit a mórtuis, iam non móritur, allelúia.
2Dómine, Dóminus noster,*
  quam admirábile est nomen tuum in univérsa terra,
quóniam eleváta est magnificéntia tua*
  super cælos.
3Ex ore infántium et lactántium†
  perfecísti laudem propter inimícos tuos,*
  ut déstruas inimícum et ultórem.
4Quando vídeo cælos tuos, ópera digitórum tuórum,*
  lunam et stellas, quæ tu fundásti,
5quid est homo, quod memor es eius,*
  aut fílius hóminis quóniam vísitas eum?
6Minuísti eum paulo minus ab ángelis,†
  glória et honóre coronásti eum*
  7et constituísti eum super ópera mánuum tuárum.
Omnia subiecísti sub pédibus eius,†
  8oves et boves univérsas,*
  ínsuper et pécora campi,
9vólucres cæli et pisces maris,*
  quæcúmque perámbulant sémitas maris.
10Dómine, Dóminus noster,*
  quam admirábile est nomen tuum in univérsa terra!
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.

Psalm 8
The greatness of God, the dignity of man
Christ has risen from the dead: he is no longer subject to death, alleluia.
How wonderful is your name over all the earth,
  O Lord, our Lord!
How exalted is your glory
  above the sky!
Out of the mouths of children and infants you have brought praise,
  to confound your enemies, to destroy your vengeful foes.
When I see the heavens, the work of your fingers,
  the moon and stars, which you set in their place –
what is man, that you should take thought for him?
  what is the son of man, that you should look after him?
You have made him but one step lower than the angels;
  you have crowned him with glory and honour;
  you have set him over the works of your hands.
You have put everything beneath his feet,
  cattle and sheep and the beasts of the field,
the birds in the air and the fish in the sea,
  whatever passes along the paths of the waters.
How wonderful is your name above all the earth,
  O Lord, our Lord!
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.

Psalmus 18:2-7
Laus Domini rerum conditoris
Visitavit nos Oriens ex alto... ad dirigendos pedes nostros in viam pacis” (Lc 1, 78. 79).
Christus surréxit a mórtuis, iam non móritur, allelúia.
2Cæli enárrant glóriam Dei, *
  et ópera mánuum eius annúntiat firmaméntum.
3Dies diéi erúctat verbum, *
  et nox nocti índicat sciéntiam.
4Non sunt loquélæ neque sermónes, *
  quorum non intellegántur voces:
5in omnem terram exívit sonus eórum, *
  et in fines orbis terræ verba eórum.
6Soli pósuit tabernáculum in eis, †
  et ipse tamquam sponsus procédens de thálamo suo, *
  exsultávit ut gigas ad curréndam viam.
7A fínibus cælórum egréssio eius, †
  et occúrsus eius usque ad fines eórum, *
  nec est quod se abscóndat a calóre eius.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Christus surréxit a mórtuis, iam non móritur, allelúia.
Psalm 18 (19)
Praise of God the creator
Christ has risen from the dead: he is no longer subject to death, alleluia.
The skies tell the story of the glory of God,
  the firmament proclaims the work of his hands;
day pours out the news to day,
  night passes to night the knowledge.
Not a speech, not a word,
  not a voice goes unheard.
Their sound is spread throughout the earth,
  their message to all the corners of the world.
At the ends of the earth he has set up
  a dwelling place for the sun.
Like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
  it rejoices like an athlete at the race to be run.
It appears at the edge of the sky,
  runs its course to the sky’s furthest edge.
Nothing can hide from its heat.
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.

Psalmus 18:8-15
Laus Deo, legis Domino
Estote vos perfecti, sicut et Pater vester cælestis perfectus est” (Mt 5, 48).
Christus surréxit a mórtuis, iam non móritur, allelúia.
8Lex Dómini immaculáta, refíciens ánimam,*
  testimónium Dómini fidéle, sapiéntiam præstans párvulis.
9Iustítiæ Dómini rectæ, lætificántes corda,*
  præcéptum Dómini lúcidum, illúminans óculos.
10Timor Dómini mundus, pérmanens in sǽculum sǽculi,*
  iudícia Dómini vera, iusta ómnia simul,
11desiderabília super aurum et lápidem pretiósum multum*
  et dulcióra super mel et favum stillántem.
12Etenim servus tuus erudítur in eis;*
  in custodiéndis illis retribútio multa.
13Erróres quis intéllegit?†
  Ab occúltis munda me,*
  14et a supérbia custódi servum tuum, ne dominétur mei.
Tunc immaculátus ero*
  et emundábor a delícto máximo.
15Sint ut compláceant elóquia oris mei*
  et meditátio cordis mei in conspéctu tuo.
Dómine, adiútor meus*
  et redémptor meus.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Christus surréxit a mórtuis, iam non móritur, allelúia.
Psalm 18 (19)
Praise of God, the Lord of the law
Christ has risen from the dead: he is no longer subject to death, alleluia.
The law of the Lord is spotless,
  it refreshes the soul.
The teaching of the Lord can be trusted,
  it gives wisdom to children.
The judgements of the Lord are right:
  they give joy to the heart.
The precepts of the Lord are clear:
  they give light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure:
  it lasts through all ages.
The decrees of the Lord are true:
  each one of them is just.
They are more desirable than gold,
  than heaps of precious stones.
They are sweeter than honey,
  than dripping honeycomb.
From them your servant learns;
  keeping them brings rich rewards.
But who knows his own errors?
  Save me from those I do not see.
Save me, your servant, from pride:
  let it have no hold over me.
Then I will be spotless
  washed clean of the gravest sin.
May the words of my mouth be pleasing
  and the thoughts of my heart, in your sight.
O Lord, you are my helper,
  O Lord, you are my redeemer.
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.

  deceitful tongue?
Sharp arrows from the warrior,
  hardened in the flames.
Alas, I am an exile in Meshech;

Behold, he will not doze or sleep,
  the guardian of Israel.
The Lord is your guardian, the Lord is your shade;
