Christ the Lord has promised us the Holy Spirit: come, let us adore him, alleluia.

The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness,
  the world and all who live in it.
He himself founded it upon the seas
  and set it firm over the waters.
(repeat antiphon*)
Who will climb the mountain of the Lord?
  Who will stand in his holy place?
The one who is innocent of wrongdoing and pure of heart,
  who has not given himself to vanities or sworn falsely.
He will receive the blessing of the Lord
  and be justified by God his saviour.
This is the way of those who seek him,
  seek the face of the God of Jacob.
(repeat antiphon*)
Gates, raise your heads. Stand up, eternal doors,
  and let the king of glory enter.
Who is the king of glory?
The Lord of might and power.
  The Lord, strong in battle.

  and let the king of glory enter.
Who is the king of glory?
The Lord of hosts
 – he is the king of glory.

  and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,

Hymnus
Optátus votis ómnium
sacrátus illúxit dies,
quo Christus, mundi spes, Deus,
conscéndit cælos árduos.
Magni triúmphum prœ́lii,
mundi perémpto príncipe,
Patris præséntans vúltibus
victrícis carnis glóriam.
In nube fertur lúcida
et spem facit credéntibus,
iam paradísum réserans
quem protoplásti cláuserant.
O grande cunctis gáudium,
quod partus nostræ Vírginis,
post sputa, flagra, post crucem
patérnæ sedi iúngitur.
Agámus ergo grátias
nostræ salútis víndici,
nostrum quod corpus véxerit
sublíme ad cæli régiam.
Sit nobis cum cæléstibus
commúne manens gáudium:
illis, quod semet óbtulit,
nobis, quod se non ábstulit.
Nunc, Christe, scandens ǽthera
ad te cor nostrum súbleva,
tuum Patrísque Spíritum
emíttens nobis cǽlitus. Amen.
Hymn
O Christ, the Light of heaven
And of the world true Light,
You come in all your radiance
To cleave the web of night.
May what is false within us
Before your truth give way,
That we may live untroubled,
With quiet hearts this day.
May steadfast faith sustain us,
And hope made firm in you;
The love that we have wasted,
O God of love, renew.
Blest Trinity we praise you
In whom our quest will cease;
Keep us with you for ever
In happiness and peace.
Stanbrook Abbey Hymnal

Ps 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.

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.

The Messiah and his forerunner
The Lord has risen from the dead, as he promised. Let us all rejoice and be glad: he is king for ever and ever, 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.
The Lord has risen from the dead, as he promised. Let us all rejoice and be glad: he is king for ever and ever, alleluia.
