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 5:2-10,12-13
Oratio matutina ad implorandum auxilium
Verbo inhabitante, æternaliter exsultabunt qui eum intra se receperunt.
Gloriabúntur in te omnes qui díligunt nomen tuum, allelúia.
2Verba mea áuribus pércipe, Dómine;*
  intéllege gémitum meum.
3Inténde voci clamóris mei,*
  rex meus et Deus meus.
4Quóniam ad te orábo, Dómine,†
  mane exáudies vocem meam;*
  mane astábo tibi et exspectábo.
5Quóniam non Deus volens iniquitátem tu es;†
  neque habitábit iuxta te malígnus,*
  6neque permanébunt iniústi ante óculos tuos.
7Odísti omnes, qui operántur iniquitátem,†
  perdes omnes, qui loquúntur mendácium;*
  virum sánguinum et dolósum abominábitur Dóminus.
8Ego autem in multitúdine misericórdiæ tuæ†
  introíbo in domum tuam;*
  adorábo ad templum sanctum tuum in timóre tuo.
9Dómine, deduc me in iustítia tua propter inimícos meos,*
  dírige in conspéctu meo viam tuam.
10Quóniam non est in ore eórum véritas,*
  cor eórum fóvea;
sepúlcrum patens est guttur eórum,*
  mólliunt linguas suas.
12Et omnes, qui sperant in te, læténtur,*
  in ætérnum exsúltent.
Obumbrábis eis, et gloriabúntur in te,*
  qui díligunt nomen tuum;
13quóniam tu benedíces iusto, Dómine,*
  quasi scuto, bona voluntáte coronábis eum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Gloriabúntur in te omnes qui díligunt nomen tuum, allelúia.
Psalm 5
A morning prayer for help
In you they rejoice, those who love your name. Alleluia.
Let my words come to your ears, O Lord:
  hear my sighs.
Listen to the voice of my crying,
  my King and my God.
As I make my prayer to you,
  Lord, listen to my voice in the morning;
  in the morning I will stand before you and await you.
You are not a God who loves evil.
  The wicked cannot stay near you,
  the unjust cannot remain in your presence.
You hate all who do evil –
  you destroy all who speak falsehood –
  the Lord abominates the bloody and deceitful man.
But in the abundance of your mercy you will admit me to your house:
  I will worship you in your holy temple, with fear and reverence.
Lord, guide me in your justice, protect me from my enemies:
  let me see the path I must follow.
For there is no truth in their mouth – their heart is a bottomless pit –
  their throat is a wide open grave – their tongue seduces.
Punish them, Lord,
  and let their own plans destroy them.
On account of their crimes, thrust them from your presence;
  for they are rebels against you.
Let all who hope in you rejoice, triumph for ever.
  You will shelter them and they will glory in you.
For you bless the just, O Lord,
  and your good will surrounds them like a shield.
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.
In you they rejoice, those who love your name. Alleluia.

  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.

Psalm 28 (29)
Praise the word of the Lord
The Lord is enthroned as king for ever. Alleluia.
Give to the Lord, all his children,
  his glory and power,
  give to the Lord the glory of his name.
Worship the Lord in holy splendour.
The voice of the Lord is heard over the waters:
  the God of majesty thunders,
  God above all the waters.
The voice of the Lord in his power,
  the voice of the Lord in his greatness.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars,
  the Lord breaks down the cedars of Lebanon.
The Lord makes Lebanon leap like a calf,
  Sirion like a wild ox.
The voice of the Lord cuts flames in two;
  the voice of the Lord beats on the desert,
  the Lord stuns the desert of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord puts the deer to flight,
  it empties the thickets;
  in his sanctuary, all praise his glory.
The Lord dwells above the raging flood,
  he is enthroned as king for ever.
The Lord will give strength to his people,
  the Lord will bless his people with 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.
The Lord is enthroned as king for ever. Alleluia.

Lectio brevisRomans 10:8-10
Prope te est verbum, in ore tuo et in corde tuo; hoc est verbum fídei, quod prædicámus. Quia si confiteáris in ore tuo: «Dóminum Iesum!», et in corde tuo credíderis quod Deus illum excitávit ex mórtuis, salvus eris. Corde enim créditur ad iustítiam, ore autem conféssio fit in salútem.
Short ReadingRomans 10:8-10 ©
The word is very near to you, it is on your lips and in your heart: the word, that is, of the faith we proclaim. If your lips confess that Jesus is Lord and if you believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, then you will be saved. By believing from the heart you are made righteous; by confessing with your lips you are saved.

Canticum
De Messia eiusque præcursore
Qui díligit me, diligétur a Patre meo; et ego díligam eum, et manifestábo ei meípsum, 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,
salútem ex inimícis nostris*
  et de manu ómnium, qui odérunt nos;
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*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Qui díligit me, diligétur a Patre meo; et ego díligam eum, et manifestábo ei meípsum, allelúia.
CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
Anybody who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and show myself to him. 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.
Anybody who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and show myself to him. Alleluia.

Per victóriam tuam salva nos, Dómine.
Christe, qui victória tua portas contrivísti infernáles, peccátum delens et mortem,
— fac nos hódie peccáti victóres.
Tu, qui mortem evacuásti, vitam nobis impértiens novam,
— da ut hódie in hac vitæ novitáte ambulémus.
Qui vitam mórtuis tribuísti, totum genus humánum de morte ad vitam redúcens,
— ómnibus, qui nobis occúrrent, ætérnam vitam concéde.
Qui, sepúlcri tui custódes confúndens, discípulos tuos lætificásti,
— plenam tibi serviéntibus largíre lætítiam.
Prayers and intercessions
The Father has glorified Jesus and handed over to him the whole of creation. Let us praise him in our morning prayer.
Lord, save us through your victory.
Lord Jesus, you have broken the power of hell, destroying sin and death;
  do not let us be defeated in our struggle with temptation.
Lord, save us through your victory.
You have ended death for ever and given us new life;
  guide our steps today along the path that leads to God.
Lord, save us through your victory.
You rose from the dead to renew all men;
  grant eternal life to everyone we meet.

Pater noster, qui es in cælis:
sanctificétur nomen tuum;
advéniat regnum tuum;
fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidiánum da nobis hódie;
et dimítte nobis débita nostra,
sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris;
et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem;
sed líbera nos a malo.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
  hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
  Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
  and forgive us our trespasses,
  as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
  but deliver us from evil.

Deus, qui fidélium mentes uníus éfficis voluntátis, da pópulis tuis id amáre quod præcipis, id desideráre quod promíttis, ut, inter mundánas varietátes, ibi nostra fixa sint corda, ubi vera sunt gáudia. Per Dóminum.
Lord, by your grace we are made one in mind and heart.
Give us a love for what you command
  and a longing for what you promise,
  so that, amid this world’s changes,
  our hearts may be set on the world of lasting joy.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

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

AMEN
