Hymnus
Dei fide, qua vívimus,
qua spe perénni crédimus,
per caritátis grátiam
Christi canámus glóriam,
Qui ductus hora tértia
ad passiónis hóstiam,
crucis ferens suspéndia
ovem redúxit pérditam.
Precémur ergo súbditi,
redemptióne líberi,
ut éruat a sǽculo
quos solvit a chirógrapho.
Christum rogámus et Patrem,
Christi Patrísque Spíritum;
unum potens per ómnia,
fove precántes, Trínitas. 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.

Psalm 44 (45)
The wedding of the King
This is the time of repentance for us to atone for our sins and seek salvation.
My heart cries out on a joyful theme:
  I will tell my poem to the king,
  my tongue like the pen of the swiftest scribe.
You have been given more than human beauty,
  and grace is poured out upon your lips,
  so that God has blessed you for ever.
Strap your sword to your side, mighty one,
  in all your greatness and splendour.
In your splendour go forth, mount your chariot,
  on behalf of truth, kindness and justice.
Let your right hand show your marvels,
  let your arrows be sharp against the hearts of the king’s enemies
 – the peoples will fall before you.
Your throne is firm, O God, from age to age,
  your royal sceptre is a sceptre of justice.
You love uprightness, hate injustice
 – for God, your God has anointed you
  with the oil of gladness, above all your companions.
Myrrh and aloes and cassia anoint your garments.
From ivory palaces the sound of harps delights you.
In your retinue go the daughters of kings.
At your right hand, the queen is adorned with gold of Ophir.
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.
This is the time of repentance for us to atone for our sins and seek salvation.

  et oblivíscere pópulum tuum et domum patris tui;
12et concupíscet rex spéciem tuam. *
  Quóniam ipse est dóminus tuus, et adóra eum.
13Fília Tyri cum munéribus; *
  vultum tuum deprecabúntur dívites plebis.
14Gloriósa nimis fília regis intrínsecus, *
  textúris áureis circumamícta.
15In véstibus variegátis adducétur regi; *
  vírgines post eam, próximæ eius, afferúntur tibi.
16Afferúntur in lætítia et exsultatióne, *
  adducúntur in domum regis.
17Pro pátribus tuis erunt tibi fílii; *
  constítues eos príncipes super omnem terram.
18Memor ero nóminis tui *
  in omni generatióne et generatióne;
proptérea pópuli confitebúntur tibi *
  in ætérnum et in sǽculum sǽculi.

Psalm 44 (45)
The King's bride
This is the time of repentance for us to atone for our sins and seek salvation.
Listen, my daughter, and understand;
  turn your ears to what I have to say.
Forget your people, forget your father’s house,
  and the king will desire you for your beauty.
  He is your lord, so worship him.
The daughters of Tyre will bring you gifts;
  the richest of your subjects will beg you to look on them.
How great is the king’s daughter, within the palace!
  She is clothed in woven gold.
She will be taken to the king in coloured garments,
  her maidens will escort her to your presence.
In gladness and rejoicing they are brought
  and led to the house of the king.
Instead of your fathers you will have sons:
  you will make them rulers over all the world.
I will remember your name
  from generation to generation.
And so your people will do you honour
  for ever and for ever.
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.
This is the time of repentance for us to atone for our sins and seek salvation.

Longing for peace
This is the time of repentance for us to atone for our sins and seek salvation.
I was in trouble, and cried to the Lord;
  and he answered me.
Lord, free me from the lips of liars,
  from deceitful tongues.
What will be given you, what will you receive,
  deceitful tongue?
Sharp arrows from the warrior,
  hardened in the flames.
Alas, I am an exile in Meshech;
  I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
My soul has lived too long
  with those who hate peace.
I am for making peace;
  but whenever I spoke, they attacked me.
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.

This is the time of repentance for us to atone for our sins and seek salvation.
I shall lift my eyes to the hills:

My help will come from the Lord,
  who made heaven and earth.

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

The Lord will guard you from all harm;
  the Lord will guard your life.
The Lord will guard your coming and your going

Jerusalem, the holy city
This is the time of repentance for us to atone for our sins and seek salvation.
They filled me with joy when they said,
  “We will go to the house of the Lord.”
Now our feet are standing
  within your gates, Jerusalem.
Jerusalem, built as a city,

there the tribes have gone up,
  the tribes of the Lord –
the witness of Israel,
  to praise the Lord’s name.
For there are the thrones of justice,
  the thrones of the house of David.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
  “Safety for those who care for you,
peace inside your walls,
  security within your ramparts!”
For my brethren and those near to me I will say
  “Peace be upon you.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
  I will call blessings upon you.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
