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 84:2-14
Propinqua est salus nostra
In terram delapso Salvatore nostro, benedixit Deus terram suam” (Origenes).
Deus, tu convérsus vivificábis nos; et plebs tua lætábitur in te, allelúia.
2Complacuísti tibi, Dómine, in terra tua,*
  convertísti captivitátem Iacob.
3Remisísti iniquitátem plebis tuæ,*
  operuísti ómnia peccáta eórum.
4Contraxísti omnem iram tuam,*
  revertísti a furóre indignatiónis tuæ.
5Convérte nos, Deus, salutáris noster,*
  et avérte iram tuam a nobis.
6Numquid in ætérnum irascéris nobis*
  aut exténdes iram tuam a generatióne in generatiónem?
7Nonne tu convérsus vivificábis nos,*
  et plebs tua lætábitur in te?
8Osténde nobis, Dómine, misericórdiam tuam*
  et salutáre tuum da nobis.
9Audiam, quid loquátur Dóminus Deus,†
  quóniam loquétur pacem ad plebem suam et sanctos suos*
  et ad eos, qui convertúntur corde.
10Vere prope timéntes eum salutáre ipsíus,*
  ut inhábitet glória in terra nostra.
11Misericórdia et véritas obviavérunt sibi,*
  iustítia et pax osculátæ sunt.
12Véritas de terra orta est,*
  et iustítia de cælo prospéxit.
13Etenim Dóminus dabit benignitátem,*
  et terra nostra dabit fructum suum.
14Iustítia ante eum ambulábit,*
  et ponet in via gressus suos.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Deus, tu convérsus vivificábis nos; et plebs tua lætábitur in te, allelúia.
Psalm 84 (85)
Our salvation is very near
You will restore our life again, Lord, and your people will rejoice in you. Alleluia.
You looked kindly, O Lord, on your land:
  you ended the captivity of Jacob.
You forgave your people’s unrighteousness
  and covered over their sins.
You reined back all of your anger
  and renounced your indignant fury.
Rescue us, God, our saviour,
  and turn your anger away from us.
Do not be angry for ever
 – or will you let your wrath last from one generation to the next?
Surely you will turn round and give us life
 – so that your people can rejoice in you?
Show us, Lord, your kindness
  and give us your salvation.
I will listen to whatever the Lord God tells me,
  for he will speak peace to his people and his chosen ones,
  and to those who repent in their hearts.
Truly his salvation is close to those who fear him,
  so that glory may dwell in our land.
Kindness and faithfulness have met together,
  justice and peace have kissed.
Faithfulness has sprung from the earth,
  and justice has looked down from heaven.
Truly the Lord will give generously,
  and our land will be fruitful.
Justice will walk before him
  and place its footsteps on his path.
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 will restore our life again, Lord, and your people will rejoice in you. Alleluia.

Thanksgiving for victory
We put our trust in the Lord and he gave us peace. Alleluia.
The city is ours,
  with its walls and ramparts,
  a refuge and stronghold.
Open the gates, let the just people enter,
  the nation that keeps faith.
The agreement is made: you will keep peace,

Trust in the Lord for all ages,

Our soul’s one desire
  is your name and your memory.
My soul longs for you at night,
  my desire for you leaves me breathless.
When your judgements shine out on the earth –
  then the peoples of the world will know your justice.
Lord, you will give us peace,
  for all you have done, you did for us.

Lectio brevisActs 13:30-33
Deus suscitávit Iesum a mórtuis; qui visus est per dies multos his, qui simul ascénderant cum eo de Galilæa 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
Amen, amen dico vobis: Non Móyses dedit vobis panem de cælo, sed Pater meus dat vobis panem de cælo verum, 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,

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*

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
I tell you solemnly, Moses did not give you bread from heaven, it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven, the true bread. 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.
I tell you solemnly, Moses did not give you bread from heaven, it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven, the true bread. Alleluia.

God our Father,
  you open the gates of the kingdom of heaven
  to those who are born again of water and the Holy Spirit
Increase the grace you have given,
  so that the people you have purified from all sin
  may not forfeit the promised blessings of your love.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

The Lord bless us, and keep us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.

AMEN
