Hymnus
Sanctórum méritis ínclita gáudia
pangámus, sócii, géstaque fórtia;
nam gliscit ánimus prómere cántibus
victórum genus óptimum.
Hi () sunt quos rétinens mundus inhórruit,
ipsum nam stérili flore peráridum
sprevére pénitus teque secúti (secútæ) sunt,
rex, Christe, bone cǽlitum.
Hi () pro te fúrias sǽvaque sústinent;
non murmur résonat, non querimónia,
sed corde tácito mens bene cónscia
consérvat patiéntiam.
Quæ vox, quæ póterit lingua retéxere
quæ tu martýribus múnera prǽparas?
Rubri nam flúido sánguine láureis
ditántur bene fúlgidis.
Te, trina Déitas únaque, póscimus,
ut culpas ábluas, nóxia súbtrahas,
des pacem fámulis, nos quoque glóriam
per cuncta tibi sǽcula. Amen.
Hymn
All hail the power of Jesus’ name;
  Let Angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem
  To crown him Lord of all.
Crown him, ye Martyrs of your God,
  Who from his altar call;
Praise him whose way of pain ye trod,
  And crown him Lord of all.
Hail him, ye heirs of David’s line,
  Whom David Lord did call;
The God Incarnate, Man Divine,
  And crown him Lord of all.
Let every tribe and every tongue
  To him their hearts enthral,
Lift high the universal song,
  And crown him Lord of all.

Ps 19:2-10
Oratio pro regis victoria

Quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini, salvus erit” (Act 2, 21).

Tríbuit Dóminus victóriam Christo suo.
2Exáudiat te Dóminus in die tribulatiónis,*
  prótegat te nomen Dei Iacob.
3Mittat tibi auxílium de sancto*
  et de Sion tueátur te.
4Memor sit omnis sacrifícii tui*
  et holocáustum tuum pingue hábeat.
5Tríbuat tibi secúndum cor tuum*
  et omne consílium tuum adímpleat.
6Lætábimur in salutári tuo†
  et in nómine Dei nostri levábimus signa;*
  ímpleat Dóminus omnes petitiónes tuas.
7Nunc cognóvi quóniam salvum fecit Dóminus christum suum:†
  exaudívit illum de cælo sancto suo,*
  in virtútibus salútis déxteræ eius.
8Hi in cúrribus et hi in equis,*
  nos autem nomen Dómini Dei nostri invocávimus.
9Ipsi incurváti sunt et cecidérunt,*
  nos autem surréximus et erécti sumus.
10Dómine, salvum fac regem,*
  et exáudi nos in die, qua invocavérimus te.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Tríbuit Dóminus victóriam Christo suo.

Psalm 19 (20)
Prayer for victory

The Lord will give victory to his Anointed One.
May the Lord hear your prayer in the day of tribulation,
  may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
May he send you help from his holy place;
  from Zion, may he extend his protection.
May he remember every one of your sacrifices
  and find merit in your burnt-offerings.
May he deal with you as your heart desires
  and bring all your plans to fulfilment.
We will rejoice in your salvation,
  we will raise our banners in the name of God;
  may the Lord grant all your prayers.
Now I know that the Lord keeps his anointed one safe:
  in his sanctuary in heaven he hears his prayer,
  and lends the support of his strong right hand.
Some put their faith in chariots
  and some in horses,
  but we invoked the name of the Lord our God.
They stumbled and fell,
  but we rose and we stand upright.
Lord, keep the king safe,
  and hear our prayer whenever we call 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.
The Lord will give victory to his Anointed One.

Ps 20:2-8,14
Gratiarum actio pro regis victoria

Accepit vitam, ut resurgeret, et longitudinem dierum in sæculum sæculi” (S. Irenæus).

Cantábimus et psallémus virtútes tuas.
2Dómine in virtúte tua lætábitur rex,*
  et super salutáre tuum exsultábit veheménter.
3Desidérium cordis eius tribuísti ei*
  et voluntátem labiórum eius non denegásti.
4Quóniam prævenísti eum in benedictiónibus dulcédinis;*
  posuísti in cápite eius corónam de auro puríssimo.
5Vitam pétiit a te, et tribuísti ei,*
  longitúdinem diérum in sǽculum et in sǽculum sǽculi.
6Magna est glória eius in salutári tuo,*
  magnificéntiam et decórem impónes super eum;
7quóniam pones eum benedictiónem in sǽculum sǽculi,*
  lætificábis eum in gáudio ante vultum tuum.
8Quóniam rex sperat in Dómino*
  et in misericórdia Altíssimi non commovébitur.
14Exaltáre, Dómine, in virtúte tua;*
  cantábimus et psallémus virtútes tuas.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Cantábimus et psallémus virtútes tuas.

Psalm 20 (21)
Thanksgiving for victory

We shall sing and praise your power.
Lord, the king will rejoice in your strength,
  he will triumph in your saving power.
You have granted him his heart’s desire,
  you have not denied the wish that he spoke.
For you showered him with blessings
  even before he asked for them.
  You have placed a crown of purest gold upon his head.
He asked you for life,
  and you granted it to him,
  length of days for ever and for ever.
Great is his glory through your help:
  you cover him with splendour and majesty.
You lay a blessing upon him that will last for ever,
  you make him rejoice in joy before you.
For the king hopes in the Lord,
  and through the kindness of the Most High he will not be shaken.
Stand high above us, Lord, in your power;
  and we will sing and celebrate your might.
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.
We shall sing and praise your power.

CanticleApocalypse 4,5

The song of the redeemed

Lord, you made us a kingdom and priests to serve our God.
You are worthy, our Lord and our God,
  to receive glory and honour and power;
for you made all things,
  and it is by your will that they exist and were created.
You are worthy, Lord,
  to receive the book and open its seals,
for you were killed,
  and with your blood you have ransomed people
  from every tribe and language and people and nation,
and made them rulers and priests for God;
  and they will rule over the earth.
The Lamb is worthy, who was killed,
  to receive power and riches and wisdom,
  strength and honour, glory and blessing.
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 made us a kingdom and priests to serve our God.

Lectio brevis1 Petr 4:13-14
Sed, quemádmodum communicátis Christi passiónibus, gaudéte, ut et in revelatióne glóriæ eius gaudeátis exsultántes. Si exprobrámini in nómine Christi, beáti, quóniam Spíritus glóriæ et Dei super vos requiéscit.
Scripture Reading1 Peter 4:13-14 ©
Beloved, if you can have some share in the sufferings of Christ, be glad, because you will enjoy a much greater gladness when his glory is revealed. It is a blessing for you when they insult you for bearing the name of Christ, because it means that you have the Spirit of glory, the Spirit of God resting on you.

Exsultatio animæ in Domino

esuriéntes implévit bonis*

My soul rejoices in the Lord

The saints, who followed in the footsteps of Christ, rejoice in heaven. They gave their life for love of Christ: therefore, they will reign with him for ever.
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
  and my spirit rejoices in God, my salvation.
For he has shown me such favour –
  me, his lowly handmaiden.
Now all generations will call me blessed,
  because the mighty one has done great things for me.
His name is holy,
  his mercy lasts for generation after generation
  for those who revere him.
He has put forth his strength:
  he has scattered the proud and conceited,
  torn princes from their thrones;
  but lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things;
  the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel,
  he has remembered his mercy as he promised to our fathers,
  to Abraham and his children 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.
Amen.
The saints, who followed in the footsteps of Christ, rejoice in heaven. They gave their life for love of Christ: therefore, they will reign with him for ever.

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 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.

  as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
  but deliver us from evil.

qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus,
per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Lord God, source of strength to all the saints,
  you called your martyrs Paul and his companions to undergo the cross that they might enter into life.
  Let their prayer help us to keep the faith to the end of our days.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

Dóminus nos benedícat, et ab omni malo deféndat, et ad vitam perdúcat ætérnam.
