Hymn
All hail the power of Jesus’ name;
  Let Angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem
  To crown him Lord of all.
Crown him, ye Martyrs of your God,
  Who from his altar call;
Praise him whose way of pain ye trod,
  And crown him Lord of all.
Hail him, ye heirs of David’s line,
  Whom David Lord did call;
The God Incarnate, Man Divine,
  And crown him Lord of all.
Let every tribe and every tongue
  To him their hearts enthral,
Lift high the universal song,
  And crown him Lord of all.

Ps 85:1-17
Pauperis in rebus adversis oratio

Benedictus Deus, qui consolatur nos in omni tribulatione nostra” (2 Cor 1, 3. 4).

Lætífica ánimam servi tui: ad te, Dómine, ánimam meam levávi.
1Inclína, Dómine, aurem tuam et exáudi me,*
  quóniam inops et pauper sum ego.
2Custódi ánimam meam, quóniam sanctus sum;*
  salvum fac servum tuum, Deus meus, sperántem in te.
3Miserére mei, Dómine,*
  quóniam ad te clamávi tota die.
4Lætífica ánimam servi tui,*
  quóniam ad te, Dómine, ánimam meam levávi.
5Quóniam tu, Dómine, suávis et mitis*
  et multæ misericórdiæ ómnibus invocántibus te.
6Auribus pércipe, Dómine, oratiónem meam*
  et inténde voci deprecatiónis meæ.
7In die tribulatiónis meæ clamávi ad te,*
  quia exáudies me.
8Non est símilis tui in diis, Dómine,*
  et nihil sicut ópera tua.
9Omnes gentes, quascúmque fecísti, vénient†
  et adorábunt coram te, Dómine,*
  et glorificábunt nomen tuum,
10quóniam magnus es tu et fáciens mirabília:*
  tu es Deus solus.
11Doce me, Dómine, viam tuam,*
  et ingrédiar in veritáte tua;
simplex fac cor meum,*
  ut tímeat nomen tuum.
12Confitébor tibi, Dómine Deus meus, in toto corde meo*
  et glorificábo nomen tuum in ætérnum,
13quia misericórdia tua magna est super me,*
  et eruísti ánimam meam ex inférno inferióri.
14Deus, supérbi insurrexérunt super me,†
  et synagóga poténtium quæsiérunt ánimam meam,*
  et non proposuérunt te in conspéctu suo.
15Et tu, Dómine, Deus miserátor et miséricors*
  pátiens et multæ misericórdiæ et veritátis,
16réspice in me et miserére mei;†
  da fortitúdinem tuam púero tuo*
  et salvum fac fílium ancíllæ tuæ.
17Fac mecum signum in bonum,†
  ut vídeant, qui odérunt me, et confundántur,*
  quóniam tu, Dómine, adiuvísti me et consolátus es me.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Lætífica ánimam servi tui: ad te, Dómine, ánimam meam levávi.
Psalm 85 (86)
A poor man's prayer in time of trouble
Give joy to your servant, Lord, for to you I lift up my soul.
Turn your ear to me, Lord, and hear me,
  for I am poor and destitute.
Keep my life safe, for I am faithful;
  O God, save your servant, who trusts in you.
Take pity upon me, O Lord,
  for I call to you all the day long.
Make your servant’s heart glad,
  for to you, O Lord, I have raised it.
For you, Lord, are gentle and mild:
  you are kind to all those who call on you.
Let your ears hear my prayer, O Lord!
  Turn to the voice of my pleading!
In my time of trouble I call on you,
  for you, O Lord, will hear me.
No other god is like you, O Lord,
  and nothing compares with your works.
All people – all nations you made –
  will come and worship before you;
  they will give glory to your name.
For you are great, you work wonders:
  you alone are God.
O Lord, teach me your paths,
  and I will come to your truth.
Make my heart simple and guileless,
  so that it honours your name.
I will proclaim you, Lord my God,
  and give you praise with all my heart.
I will give glory to your name for ever,
  for your great kindness is upon me:
  you have rescued me from the deepest depths.
O God, the proud rise against me,
  in the meetings of the powerful they seek my life:
  they do not keep you in their sight.
And you, Lord, are a God of compassion,
  full of mercies, patient and true.
Look upon me, have mercy upon me,
  give your strength and protection to your servant:
  your servant, the child of your handmaid.
Give me a sign of your goodness,
  let my enemies see it and be confounded;
because you, O Lord, have helped me and given me comfort.
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.
Give joy to your servant, Lord, for to you I lift up my soul.

CanticumIs 33:13-16
Deus iudicabit in iustitia

Vobis est repromissio et filiis vestris et omnibus, qui longe sunt” (Act 2, 39).

Beátus vir qui ámbulat in iustítia et lóquitur veritátem.
13Audíte, qui longe estis, quæ fécerim,*
  et cognóscite, vicíni, fortitúdinem meam.
14Contérriti sunt in Sion peccatóres,*
  possédit tremor ímpios.
Quis póterit habitáre de vobis cum igne devoránte?*
  Quis habitábit ex vobis cum ardóribus sempitérnis?
15Qui ámbulat in iustítiis*
  et lóquitur æquitátes,
qui réicit lucra ex rapínis*
  et éxcutit manus suas, ne múnera accípiat,
qui obtúrat aures suas, ne áudiat sánguinem,*
  et claudit óculos suos, ne vídeat malum:
16iste in excélsis habitábit,*
  muniménta saxórum refúgium eius;
panis ei datus est,*
  aquæ eius fidéles sunt.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Beátus vir qui ámbulat in iustítia et lóquitur veritátem.
CanticleIsaiah 33
The Lord will give just judgement
Blessed is the man who walks in justice and speaks what is true.
Hear what I have done, you who are far off,
  and you who are near, learn of my strength.
In Zion, the sinners are afraid;
  the hypocrites tremble.
Which of you could live with a devouring fire?
Which of you will abide in everlasting burning?
He who walks in justice, he who speaks fairly –
he who rejects the spoils of robbery –
he who throws back a bribe –
he who blocks his ears against murderous counsels –
he who shuts his eyes against evil sights –
this is he who will dwell on high, secure in a fortress of rocks.
Bread is given to him; his supply of water is secure.
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.
Blessed is the man who walks in justice and speaks what is true.

Ps 97:1-9
Dominus victor in iudicio

Hic psalmus priorem Domini adventum significat et fidem omnium gentium” (S. Athanasius).

Iubiláte in conspéctu regis Dómini.
1Cantáte Dómino cánticum novum,*
  quia mirabília fecit.
Salvávit sibi déxtera eius,*
  et bráchium sanctum eius.
2Notum fecit Dóminus salutáre suum,*
  in conspéctu géntium revelávit iustítiam suam.
3Recordátus est misericórdiæ suæ*
  et veritátis suæ dómui Israel.
Vidérunt omnes términi terræ*
  salutáre Dei nostri.
4Iubiláte Deo, omnis terra,*
  erúmpite, exsultáte et psállite.
5Psállite Dómino in cíthara,*
  in cíthara et voce psalmi;
6in tubis ductílibus et voce tubæ córneæ,*
  iubiláte in conspéctu regis Dómini.
7Sonet mare et plenitúdo eius,*
  orbis terrárum, et qui hábitant in eo.
8Flúmina plaudent manu,†
  simul montes exsultábunt 9a conspéctu Dómini,*
  quóniam venit iudicáre terram.
Iudicábit orbem terrárum in iustítia*
  et pópulos in æquitáte.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Iubiláte in conspéctu regis Dómini.
Psalm 97 (98)
The Lord has brought salvation
Acclaim the King, the Lord.
Sing a new song to the Lord,
  for he has worked wonders.
His right hand, his holy arm,
  have brought him victory.
The Lord has shown his saving power,
  and before all nations he has shown his justice.
He has remembered to show his kindness
  and his faithfulness to the house of Israel.
The farthest ends of the earth
  have seen the saving power of our God.
Rejoice in God, all the earth.
  Break forth in triumph and song!
Sing to the Lord on the lyre,
  with the lyre and with music.
With trumpets and the sound of the horn,
  sound jubilation to the Lord, our king.
Let the sea resound in its fullness,
  all the earth and all its inhabitants.
The rivers will clap their hands,
  and the mountains will exult at the presence of the Lord,
  for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge all the world in justice,
  and the peoples with fairness.
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.
Acclaim the King, the Lord.

2 Corinthians 1:3-5 ©
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, a gentle Father and the God of all consolation, who comforts us in all our sorrows, so that we can offer others, in their sorrows, the consolation that we have received from God ourselves. Indeed, as the sufferings of Christ overflow to us, so, through Christ, does our consolation overflow.

Canticum
De Messia eiusque præcursore
Beáti qui persecutiónem patiúntur propter iustítiam, quóniam ipsórum est regnum cælórum.
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,

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*

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
Blessed are those who are persecuted in the cause of right: theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
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.
Blessed are those who are persecuted in the cause of right: theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

  as well as on the example of fortitude,
  of blessed Alban, Julius and Aaron,
  who were, with others, the first in our land to confess your Son our Lord Jesus Christ
  by the shedding of their blood.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

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