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.

super aquas quiétis edúxit me,*
  3ánimam meam refécit.
Dedúxit me super sémitas iustítiæ*
  propter nomen suum.
4Nam et si ambulávero in valle umbræ mortis, non timébo mala,*
  quóniam tu mecum es.
Virga tua et báculus tuus,*
  ipsa me consoláta sunt.
5Parásti in conspéctu meo mensam*
  advérsus eos, qui tríbulant me;
impinguásti in óleo caput meum,*
  et calix meus redúndat.
6Etenim benígnitas et misericórdia subsequéntur me*
  ómnibus diébus vitæ meæ,
et inhabitábo in domo Dómini*

Psalm 22 (23)
The good shepherd
Fresh and green are the pastures where the Lord gives me repose, alleluia.
The Lord is my shepherd: I shall lack nothing.
He has taken me to green pastures,
  he has led me to still waters;
  he has healed my spirit.
He has led me along right paths
  for his own name’s sake.
Even if I walk in the valley of the shadow of death,
  I shall fear no evil, for you are with me:
  your rod and your staff give me comfort.
You have set a table before me
  in the sight of my enemies.
You have anointed my head with oil,
  and my cup overflows.
Truly goodness and kindness will follow me
  all the days of my life.
For long years I shall live
  in the house of the 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.
Fresh and green are the pastures where the Lord gives me repose, alleluia.

Gratiarum actio pro victoria
Videbunt Filium hominis venientem in nubibus cæli” (Mt 24, 30).
In Israel magnum nomen Dómini, allelúia.
2Notus in Iudǽa Deus,*
  in Israel magnum nomen eius.
3Et est in Salem tabernáculum eius,*
  et habitátio eius in Sion.
4Ibi confrégit coruscatiónes arcus,*
  scutum, gládium et bellum.
5Illúminans tu, Mirábilis,*
  a móntibus direptiónis.
6Spoliáti sunt poténtes corde,†
  dormiérunt somnum suum,*
  et non invenérunt omnes viri fortes manus suas.
7Ab increpatióne tua, Deus Iacob,*
  dormitavérunt auríga et equus.

Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.

Psalm 75 (76)
Thanksgiving after victory
In Israel the name of the Lord is great, alleluia.
God’s name is known in Judah,
  in Israel his name is great.
His dwelling-place is in Salem,
  in Zion his habitation.
He has destroyed gleaming bows,
  shields, swords, and whole armies.
God of Wonders, your glory shines
  from the mountains of spoil.
The proud and powerful are despoiled
  and now they sleep their sleep –
  all men have lost their strength.
God of Jacob, at the sound of your rebuke
  chariot and horse fall stunned.
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 Israel the name of the Lord is great, alleluia.

Terra trémuit et quiévit, cum exsúrgeret in iudícium Deus, allelúia.
8Tu terríbilis es, et quis resístet tibi?*
  Ex tunc ira tua.
9De cælo audítum fecísti iudícium;*
  terra trémuit et quiévit,
10cum exsúrgeret in iudícium Deus,*
  ut salvos fáceret omnes mansuétos terræ.
11Quóniam furor hóminis confitébitur tibi,*
  et relíquiæ furóris diem festum agent tibi.
12Vovéte et réddite Dómino Deo vestro;*
  omnes in circúitu eius áfferant múnera Terríbili,
13ei, qui aufert spíritum príncipum,*
  terríbili apud reges terræ.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.

Terra trémuit et quiévit, cum exsúrgeret in iudícium Deus, allelúia.
Psalm 75 (76)
The earth in terror was still when the Lord arose to judge, alleluia.
You bring terror and no-one will stand up to you
  when your anger is roused.
From the heavens you have made your judgement known:
  the earth trembled and lay still
when God rose up to give judgement
  to save all the humble of the world.
For the rage of man will proclaim your greatness
  and the remnants of that rage will make a festival for you.
Make vows to the Lord and fulfil them.
  Let all around bring gifts to the God of Terror,
to him who takes away the breath of princes
  and brings terror to the kings of the earth.
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 earth in terror was still when the Lord arose to judge, alleluia.

4Sagíttæ poténtis acútæ*
  cum carbónibus iuniperórum.
5Heu mihi, quia peregrinátus sum in Mosoch,*
  habitávi ad tabernácula Cedar!

Longing for peace
I called and the Lord answered me.
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.

  unde véniet auxílium mihi?
2Auxílium meum a Dómino,*
  qui fecit cælum et terram.

  qui custódit Israel.
5Dóminus custódit te,†
  Dóminus umbráculum tuum,*
  ad manum déxteram tuam.

The guardian of the people
May the Lord guard your going in and coming out.
I shall lift my eyes to the hills:
  where is my help to come from?
My help will come from the Lord,
  who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip:

Behold, he will not doze or sleep,

By day the sun will not strike you;
  nor the moon by night.
The Lord will guard you from all harm;
  the Lord will guard your life.
The Lord will guard your coming and your going
  both now 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.

Psalmus 121:1-9
Civitas sancta Ierusalem
Accessistis ad Sion montem et civitatem Dei viventis, Ierusalem cælestem” (Hebr 12, 22).
Lætátus sum in his quæ dicta sunt mihi.
1Lætátus sum in eo quod dixérunt mihi:*
  «In domum Dómini íbimus».
2Stantes iam sunt pedes nostri*
  in portis tuis, Ierúsalem.
3Ierúsalem, quæ ædificáta est ut cívitas,*
  sibi compácta in idípsum.
4Illuc enim ascendérunt tribus, tribus Dómini,*
  testimónium Israel, ad confiténdum nómini Dómini.
5Quia illic sedérunt sedes ad iudícium,*
  sedes domus David.
6Rogáte, quæ ad pacem sunt Ierúsalem:*

7Fiat pax in muris tuis,*
  et secúritas in túrribus tuis!».
8Propter fratres meos et próximos meos*
  loquar: «Pax in te!».

Psalm 121 (122)
Jerusalem, the holy city
I rejoiced in the things which were said to me.
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,
  whole and self-contained:
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,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
I rejoiced in the things which were said to me.

CONCLUSION


Lectio brevisRomans 5:1-2,5
Iustificáti ex fide, pacem habémus ad Deum per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, per quem et accéssum habémus fide in grátiam istam, in qua stamus et gloriámur in spe glóriæ Dei. Spes autem non confúndit, quia cáritas Dei diffúsa est in córdibus nostris per Spíritum Sanctum, qui datus est nobis.
Short ReadingRomans 5:1-2,5 ©
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, by faith we are judged righteous and at peace with God, since it is by faith and through Jesus that we have entered this state of grace in which we can boast about looking forward to God’s glory. This hope is not deceptive, because the love of God has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit which has been given us.

℣. Misericórdias Dómini in ætérnum cantábo.
℟. In generatiónem et generatiónem annuntiábo veritátem tuam.
I will sing for ever of the kindnesses of the Lord.
To generation upon generation I will proclaim your faithfulness.

Oremus.
  Omnípotens sempitérne Deus, da nobis fídei, spei et caritátis augméntum et, ut mereámur ássequi quod promíttis, fac nos amáre quod præcipis. Per Dóminum.
Let us pray.
Lord God, deepen our faith,
  strengthen our hope,
  enkindle our love;
and so that we may obtain what you promise,
  make us love what you command.
Through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Benedicámus Dómino.
– Deo grátias.
Let us praise the Lord.
– Thanks be to God.
