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.

Ps 42:1-5
Desiderium templi

Ego lux in mundum veni” (Io 12, 46).

Accessístis ad Sion montem et civitátem Dei vivéntis, allelúia.
1Iúdica me, Deus,†
  et discérne causam meam de gente non sancta;*
  ab hómine iníquo et dolóso érue me.
2Quia tu es Deus refúgii mei;†
  quare me reppulísti,*
  et quare tristis incédo, dum afflígit me inimícus?
3Emítte lucem tuam et veritátem tuam;*
  ipsæ me dedúcant et addúcant in montem sanctum tuum et in tabernácula tua.
4Et introíbo ad altáre Dei,†
  ad Deum lætítiæ exsultatiónis meæ.*
  Confitébor tibi in cíthara, Deus, Deus meus.
5Quare tristis es, ánima mea,*
  et quare conturbáris in me?
Spera in Deo, quóniam adhuc confitébor illi,*
  salutáre vultus mei et Deus meus.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Accessístis ad Sion montem et civitátem Dei vivéntis, allelúia.
Psalm 42 (43)
Longing for the temple
You have come to Mount Sion, and the city of the living God. Alleluia.
Vindicate me, Lord:
  judge my case against an unholy nation,
  rescue me from betrayers, from the wicked.
For you are the God of my refuge;
  why have you rejected me?
  why must I suffer while my enemies torment me?
Send forth your light and your truth;
  let them lead me away,
  let them lead me up your holy mountain,
  up to your sanctuary.
I shall go in to the altar of God,
  to the God of my gladness and joy.
I will sing out to you on the lyre,
  O God, my God.
Why are you so sad, my soul,
  and anxious within me?
Put your hope in the Lord, I will praise him still,
  my saviour and my God.
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.
You have come to Mount Sion, and the city of the living God. Alleluia.

Canticum
Is 38:10-14,17-20
Moribundi angores, sanati lætitia

Ego sum vivens et fui mortuus ... et habeo claves mortis” (Ap 1, 17-18).

Tu, Dómine, eruísti ánimam meam, ut non períret, allelúia.
10Ego dixi: In dimídio diérum meórum†
  vadam ad portas ínferi;*
  quæsívi resíduum annórum meórum.
11Dixi: Non vidébo Dóminum Deum in terra vivéntium,†
  non aspíciam hóminem ultra*
  inter habitatóres orbis.
12Habitáculum meum ablátum est et abdúctum longe a me*
  quasi tabernáculum pastórum;
convólvit sicut textor vitam meam;*
  de stámine succídit me.
De mane usque ad vésperam*
  confecísti me.
13Prostrátus sum usque ad mane,*
  quasi leo sic cónterit ómnia ossa mea;
de mane usque ad vésperam*
  confecísti me.
14Sicut pullus hirúndinis, sic mussitábo,*
  meditábor ut colúmba;
attenuáti sunt óculi mei*
  suspiciéntes in excélsum.
17Tu autem eruísti ánimam meam*
  a fóvea consumptiónis,
proiecísti enim post tergum tuum*
  ómnia peccáta mea.
18Quia non inférnus confitébitur tibi,*
  neque mors laudábit te;
non exspectábunt, qui descéndunt in lacum,*
  veritátem tuam.
19Vivens, vivens ipse confitébitur tibi, sicut et ego hódie;*
  pater fíliis notam fáciet veritátem tuam.
20Dómine, salvum me fac,†
  et ad sonum cítharæ cantábimus cunctis diébus vitæ nostræ*
  in domo Dómini.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Tu, Dómine, eruísti ánimam meam, ut non períret, allelúia.
CanticleIsaiah 38
The psalm of Hezekiah on recovering from sickness
Lord, you have kept my soul from destruction. Alleluia.
I said, in the middle of my days
  I am going to the gates of the underworld.
  Where shall I find the remainder of my years?
I said, I will not see the Lord God in the land of the living,
  I will never see another of the inhabitants of the earth.
My dwelling-place is taken away, taken far away from me,
  like the tent of a shepherd.
Like a weaver, he has rolled up my life
  and cut it off from the loom.
From morning to night,
  you have made an end of me.
I cried for help till daybreak;
  like a lion, he has crushed all my bones.
From morning to night,
  you have made an end of me.
I twitter like a fledgling sparrow,
  make noises like a dove.
My eyes are weak
  from looking upward.
But you have pulled my soul out of the pit of destruction,
  you have put all my sins behind you.
For after all, the underworld will not proclaim you,
  nor death praise you;
those who go down there
  do not wait in hope for your faithfulness.
It is the living, the living who will proclaim you,
  as I do today.
Fathers will pass on to their children
  the truth of your faithfulness.
Save me, Lord,
  and to the sound of the harp we will sing to you,
all the days of our life,
  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.
Lord, you have kept my soul from destruction. Alleluia.

Ps 64:2-14
Sollemnis gratiarum actio

In Sion intellege cælicam civitatem” (Origenes).

Visitásti terram et inebriásti eam, allelúia.
2Te decet hymnus, Deus, in Sion;*
  †et tibi reddétur votum in Ierúsalem.
3Qui audis oratiónem,*
  ad te omnis caro véniet propter iniquitátem.
4Etsi prævaluérunt super nos impietátes nostræ,*
  tu propitiáberis eis.
5Beátus, quem elegísti et assumpsísti;*
  inhabitábit in átriis tuis.
Replébimur bonis domus tuæ,*
  sanctitáte templi tui.
6Mirabíliter in æquitáte exáudies nos, Deus salútis nostræ,*
  spes ómnium fínium terræ et maris longínqui.
7Firmans montes in virtúte tua,*
  accínctus poténtia.
8Compéscens sónitum maris, sónitum flúctuum eius*
  et tumúltum populórum.
9Et timébunt, qui hábitant términos terræ, a signis tuis;*
  éxitus oriéntis et occidéntis delectábis.
10Visitásti terram et inebriásti eam;*
  multiplicásti locupletáre eam.
Flumen Dei replétum est aquis;†
  parásti fruménta illórum,*
  quóniam ita parásti eam.
11Sulcos eius írrigans, glebas eius complánans;*
  ímbribus emóllis eam, benedícis gérmini eius.
12Coronásti annum benignitáte tua,*
  et vestígia tua stillábunt pinguédinem.
13Stillábunt páscua desérti,*
  et exsultatióne colles accingéntur.
14Indúta sunt óvibus prata,†
  et valles abundábunt fruménto;*
  clamábunt, étenim hymnum dicent.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Visitásti terram et inebriásti eam, allelúia.
Psalm 64 (65)
A solemn thanksgiving
You care for the earth, you give it water. Alleluia.
To you we owe praise, O God, in Zion;
  to you we will fulfil our vows, in Jerusalem.
It is you who answer prayers:
  to you must all men come,
  because we are sinners;
even if our transgressions overwhelm us,
  you will blot them out.
Blessed is the man you have taken up and chosen:
  he will live within your halls.
We shall be filled with the good things of your house,
  with the holiness of your temple.
Marvellous is the justice with which you listen to us,
  God of our salvation,
  hope of all the earth and far-off coasts.
You make firm the mountains in their place,
  clothed in your power and might.
You make still the roaring of the sea,
  the crash of its waves; and the tumult of the peoples.
Those who live at the ends of the earth
  will tremble at your wonders.
You will fill the east and the west with joy.
You have come to the earth, you have filled it,
  saturated it with fruitfulness.
The river of God is filled with water,
  as you prepare the harvest:
for thus you have prepared the land,
  watering its furrows,
  smoothing its roughnesses,
  softening it with showers,
  blessing the seeds within it.
You have crowned the year with your kindness.
  Your footsteps will drip with fruitfulness.
The desert pastures will be soaked,
  the hills will be wrapped in rejoicing.
The fields will be clothed with flocks,
  the vales overflow with corn.
They will cry out, and sing your praise.
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.
You care for the earth, you give it water. Alleluia.

Lectio brevisAct 13:30-33
Deus suscitávit Iesum a mórtuis; qui visus est per dies multos his, qui simul ascénderant cum eo de Galilǽa in Ierúsalem, qui nunc sunt testes eius ad plebem. Et nos vobis evangelizámus eam, quæ ad patres promíssio facta est, quóniam hanc Deus adimplévit fíliis eórum, nobis resúscitans Iesum, sicut et in Psalmo secúndo scriptum est: Fílius meus es tu; ego hódie génui te.
Short ReadingActs 13:30-33 ©
God raised Jesus from the dead, and for many days he appeared to those who had accompanied him from Galilee to Jerusalem: and it is these same companions of his who are now his witnesses before our people. We have come here to tell you the Good News. It was to our ancestors that God made the promise but it is to us, their children, that he has fulfilled it, by raising Jesus from the dead. As scripture says in the second psalm: You are my son: today I have become your father.

Canticum
De Messia eiusque præcursore
Adhuc módicum, et mundus me iam non videt; vos autem vidébitis me, quia ego vivo, et vos vivétis, 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*

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
In a short time the world will no longer see me; but you will see me, because I live and you will live. 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.
In a short time the world will no longer see me; but you will see me, because I live and you will live. Alleluia.

and lead us not into temptation,
  but deliver us from evil.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

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.
