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 83:2-13
Desiderium templi Domini
Non habemus hic manentem civitatem, sed futuram inquirimus” (Hebr 13, 14).
Cor meum et caro mea exsultavérunt in Deum vivum, allelúia.
2Quam dilécta tabernácula tua, Dómine virtútum!*
  3Concupíscit et déficit ánima mea in átria Dómini.
Cor meum et caro mea*
  exsultavérunt in Deum vivum.
4Etenim passer invénit sibi domum,†
  et turtur nidum sibi, ubi ponat pullos suos:*
  altária tua, Dómine virtútum, rex meus et Deus meus.
5Beáti, qui hábitant in domo tua:*
  in perpétuum laudábunt te.
6Beátus vir, cuius est auxílium abs te,*
  ascensiónes in corde suo dispósuit.
7Transeúntes per vallem sitiéntem in fontem ponent eam,*
  étenim benedictiónibus véstiet eam plúvia matutína.
8Ibunt de virtúte in virtútem,*
  vidébitur Deus deórum in Sion.
9Dómine Deus virtútum, exáudi oratiónem meam;*
  áuribus pércipe, Deus Iacob.
10Protéctor noster áspice, Deus,*
  et réspice in fáciem christi tui.
11Quia mélior est dies una in átriis tuis super mília,†
  elégi ad limen esse in domo Dei mei*
  magis quam habitáre in tabernáculis peccatórum.
12Quia sol et scutum est Dóminus Deus,†
  grátiam et glóriam dabit Dóminus;*
  non privábit bonis eos, qui ámbulant in innocéntia.
13Dómine virtútum,*
  beátus homo, qui sperat in te.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Cor meum et caro mea exsultavérunt in Deum vivum, allelúia.
Psalm 83 (84)
Longing for the Lord's temple
My heart and my soul ring out their joy to the living God. Alleluia.
How delightful is your dwelling-place, Lord of hosts!
  My soul is weak with longing for the courts of your palace.
  My heart and my body rejoice in the living God.
Even the sparrow finds itself a home,
  the swallow a nest to raise her young –
  in your altars, O Lord,
  Lord of strength, my king and my God.
Blessed are they who dwell in your house:
  they will praise you for ever.
Blessed the man whose help comes from you,
  who has set his heart on climbing to you.
They pass through the valley of thirst
  and make a spring there:
  the morning rain will cover it with blessings.
They will go from strength to strength:
  they will see the God of gods, in Zion.
Lord God of hosts, listen to my prayer;
  hear me, O God of Jacob.
Take notice of us, God our protector,
  and look on the face of your anointed one.
One day in the courts of my God
  is worth more than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be at the doorstep of the house of my God
  than live in the dwellings of sinners.
For the Lord my God is my sun and my shield.
  The Lord gives grace and glory.
He will not deny his good things
  to those who walk in purity.
Blessed is he who trusts in you,
  O Lord of hosts.
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.
My heart and my soul ring out their joy to the living God. Alleluia.

CanticumIsaiah 2:2-5
Mons domus Domini in vertice montium
Omnes gentes venient et adorabunt in conspectu tuo” (Ap 15, 4).

2Erit in novíssimis diébus*
  præparátus mons domus Dómini in vértice móntium,
et elevábitur super colles,*

  «Veníte et ascendámus ad montem Dómini,*
  ad domum Dei Iacob,
ut dóceat nos vias suas,*
  et ambulémus in sémitis eius»;
quia de Sion exíbit lex*
  et verbum Dómini de Ierúsalem.
4Et iudicábit gentes*
  et árguet pópulos multos,
et conflábunt gládios suos in vómeres*
  et lánceas suas in falces;
non levábit gens contra gentem gládium,*
  nec exercebúntur ultra ad prœ́lium.
5Domus Iacob, veníte,*

CanticleIsaiah 2
The mountain of the house of the Lord
Great is the Temple of the Lord: all the nations will go there to worship, alleluia.
In the last days, at the end of time,
  the mountain of the house of the Lord
  will be prepared high above all mountains.
It will be raised above the hills
  and all nations will come to it.
And many peoples will come there and say
  “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
  to the house of the God of Jacob.
Let him teach us his ways,
  so that we may walk in his paths.”
For from Zion the law will go forth,
  from Jerusalem the word of the Lord.
And he will judge the nations
  and rebuke many peoples.
They will beat their swords into ploughshares
  and their spears into sickles.
Nation will lift sword against nation no longer.
  No longer will they go out into battle.
People of Jacob, come:
  let us walk in the light 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.
Great is the Temple of the Lord: all the nations will go there to worship, alleluia.

Tunc exsultábunt ómnia ligna silvárum†

Psalm 95 (96)
The Lord, the universal King and judge
Proclaim to the nations, ‘God is king,’ alleluia.
Sing a new song to the Lord,
  sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless his name;
  day after day, proclaim his saving power.
Proclaim his glory to the nations,
  proclaim to all peoples the wonders he has done.
For the Lord is great; great is the praise we owe him,
  he is to be feared above all gods.
The gods of the nations are foolishness,
  but the Lord made the heavens.
Majesty and splendour are all about him,
  power and honour in his holy place.
Bring to the Lord, clans of the peoples,
  bring to the Lord glory and power,
  bring to the Lord the glory that belongs to his name.
Bring your offerings, enter his courts,
  worship the Lord in holy attire.
Tremble at his presence, all the earth.
  Say to the nations: “The Lord reigns!”
For he has set the world firm, so that it cannot be shaken,
  and he will judge the peoples with fairness.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad,
  let the sea and its fullness resound.
The fields will rejoice, and all that is in them,
  all the trees of the woods will rejoice
  at the Lord’s presence – for he comes,
  for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge all the world with justice.
  He will judge all the peoples with fairness.
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.
Proclaim to the nations, ‘God is king,’ alleluia.

Lectio brevisRomans 10:8-10
Prope te est verbum, in ore tuo et in corde tuo; hoc est verbum fídei, quod prædicámus. Quia si confiteáris in ore tuo: «Dóminum Iesum!», et in corde tuo credíderis quod Deus illum excitávit ex mórtuis, salvus eris. Corde enim créditur ad iustítiam, ore autem conféssio fit in salútem.
Short ReadingRomans 10:8-10 ©
The word is very near to you, it is on your lips and in your heart: the word, that is, of the faith we proclaim. If your lips confess that Jesus is Lord and if you believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, then you will be saved. By believing from the heart you are made righteous; by confessing with your lips you are saved.

Canticum
De Messia eiusque præcursore
Operámini non cibum qui perit, sed qui pérmanet in vitam ætérnam, 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*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
Work not for the food that cannot last, but work for food that endures to eternal life. 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.
Work not for the food that cannot last, but work for food that endures to eternal life. Alleluia.

Preces
Iesum, quem Pater glorificávit et herédem ómnium géntium constítuit, exaltémus, orántes:
Per victóriam tuam salva nos, Dómine.
Christe, qui victória tua portas contrivísti infernáles, peccátum delens et mortem,
— fac nos hódie peccáti victóres.
Tu, qui mortem evacuásti, vitam nobis impértiens novam,
— da ut hódie in hac vitæ novitáte ambulémus.
Qui vitam mórtuis tribuísti, totum genus humánum de morte ad vitam redúcens,
— ómnibus, qui nobis occúrrent, ætérnam vitam concéde.
Qui, sepúlcri tui custódes confúndens, discípulos tuos lætificásti,
— plenam tibi serviéntibus largíre lætítiam.
Prayers and intercessions
The Father has glorified Jesus and handed over to him the whole of creation. Let us praise him in our morning prayer.
Lord, save us through your victory.
Lord Jesus, you have broken the power of hell, destroying sin and death;
  do not let us be defeated in our struggle with temptation.
Lord, save us through your victory.
You have ended death for ever and given us new life;
  guide our steps today along the path that leads to God.
Lord, save us through your victory.
You rose from the dead to renew all men;
  grant eternal life to everyone we meet.
Lord, save us through your victory.
The disciples rejoiced when you came back from the grave;
  fill the hearts of your servants with overflowing joy.
Lord, save us through your victory.

Pater noster, qui es in cælis:
sanctificétur nomen tuum;
advéniat regnum tuum;
fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidiánum da nobis hódie;
et dimítte nobis débita nostra,
sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris;
et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem;
sed líbera nos a malo.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
  hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
  Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
  and forgive us our trespasses,
  as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
  but deliver us from evil.

Deus, qui errántibus, ut in viam possint redíre, veritátis tuæ lumen osténdis, da cunctis, qui christiána professióne censéntur, et illa respúere, quæ huic inimíca sunt nómini, et ea, quæ sunt apta, sectári. Per Dóminum.
God and Father,
  to those who go astray
  you reveal the light of your truth
  and enable them to return to the right path.
Grant that all who have received the grace of baptism
  may strive to be worthy of their Christian calling
  and reject everything opposed to it.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

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.

AMEN
