Hymnus
Veni, creátor Spíritus,
mentes tuórum vísita,
imple supérna grátia,
quæ tu creásti, péctora.
Qui díceris Paráclitus,
donum Dei altíssimi,
fons vivus, ignis, cáritas
et spiritális únctio.
Tu septifórmis múnere,
dextræ Dei tu dígitus,

sermóne ditans gúttura.
Accénde lumen sénsibus,
infúnde amórem córdibus,

Hostem repéllas lóngius
pacémque dones prótinus;
ductóre sic te prǽvio
vitémus omne nóxium.
Per te sciámus da Patrem
noscámus atque Fílium,
te utriúsque Spíritum
credámus omni témpore.
Amen.
Hymn
Come, Holy Ghost, Creator, come
from thy bright heav’nly throne.
Come, take possession of our souls
and make them all thine own.
Thou who art called the Paraclete,
blest gift of God above,
the living spring, the living fire,
sweet unction and true love.
Thou who art sev’nfold in thy grace,
finger of God’s right hand;
his promise, teaching little ones
to speak and understand.
O guide our minds with thy blest light,
with love our hearts in-flame;
and with thy strength, which ne’er decays
confirm our mortal frame.
Far from us drive our deadly foe,
true peace unto us bring;
and through all perils lead us safe
beneath thy sacred wing.
Through thee may we the Father know,
through thee th’eternal Son,
and thee the Spirit of them both,
thrice-blessèd Three in One.

Ps 134:1-12
Laus Domini mirabilia operantis

Populus in acquisitionem ... annuntiate virtutes eius qui de tenebris vos vocavit in admirabile lumen suum” (Cf. 1 Petr 2, 9).

Ego Dóminus salvans te et redémptor tuus, allelúia.
1Laudáte nomen Dómini,*
  laudáte, servi Dómini,
2qui statis in domo Dómini,*
  in átriis domus Dei nostri.
3Laudáte Dóminum, quia bonus Dóminus;*
  psállite nómini eius, quóniam suáve.
4Quóniam Iacob elégit sibi Dóminus,*
  Israel in pecúlium sibi.
5Quia ego cognóvi quod magnus est Dóminus*
  et Deus noster præ ómnibus diis.
6Omnia, quæcúmque vóluit,†
  Dóminus fecit in cælo et in terra,*
  in mari et in ómnibus abýssis.
7Addúcens nubes ab extrémo terræ,†
  fúlgura in plúviam facit,*
  prodúcit ventos de thesáuris suis.
8Qui percússit primogénita Ægýpti*
  ab hómine usque ad pecus.
9Misit signa et prodígia in médio tui, Ægýpte,*
  in pharaónem et in omnes servos eius.
10Qui percússit gentes multas*
  et occídit reges fortes:
11Sehon regem Amorræórum et Og regem Basan*
  et ómnia regna Chánaan.
12Et dedit terram eórum hereditátem,*
  hereditátem Israel pópulo suo.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Ego Dóminus salvans te et redémptor tuus, allelúia.

Psalm 134 (135)
Praise the Lord, the wonder-worker

I, the Lord, am your Saviour, I am your Redeemer. Alleluia.
Praise the name of the Lord:
  praise it, servants of the Lord,
you who stand in the house of the Lord,
  in the courts of the house of our God.
Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
  sing to his name, for it brings happiness.
For the Lord chose Jacob for his own,
  he chose Israel for his possession.
I know how great is the Lord,
  how great is our God above all gods.
The Lord accomplishes all that he wills,
  in the heavens and on the earth,
  in the sea and the depths of the oceans.
He brings in clouds from the ends of the earth,
  makes lightning for the rain-clouds,
  from his storehouse he calls forth the winds.
He struck down the first-born of Egypt,
  of man and of beast alike.
He sent signs and wonders among them,
  to Pharaoh and all his servants.
He shattered nation after nation,
  killed powerful kings:
Sihon, king of the Amorites,
  Og, the king of Bashan,
  all the kingdoms of Canaan.
He gave their lands as a birthright,
  as a birthright for Israel his people.
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, the Lord, am your Saviour, I am your Redeemer. Alleluia.

Ps 134:13-21

Benedíctum quod venit regnum patris nostri David, allelúia.
13Dómine, nomen tuum in ætérnum;*
  Dómine, memoriále tuum in generatiónem et generatiónem.
14Quia iudicábit Dóminus pópulum suum*
  et servórum suórum miserébitur.
15Simulácra géntium argéntum et aurum,*
  ópera mánuum hóminum:
16os habent et non loquéntur;*
  óculos habent et non vidébunt;
17aures habent et non áudient;*
  neque enim est spíritus in ore ipsórum.
18Símiles illis erunt, qui fáciunt ea,*
  et omnes, qui confídunt in eis.
19Domus Israel, benedícite Dómino;*
  domus Aaron, benedícite Dómino;
20domus Levi, benedícite Dómino;*
  qui timétis Dóminum, benedícite Dómino.
21Benedíctus Dóminus ex Sion,*
  qui hábitat in Ierúsalem.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Benedíctum quod venit regnum patris nostri David, allelúia.

Psalm 134 (135)

Blessed is the kingdom of our father David which has come among us. Alleluia.
Lord, your name is for ever;
  Lord, your name will be remembered
  by generation after generation.
For the Lord will give judgement for his people,
  he will look with kindness upon his servants.
The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
  the work of the hands of men.
They have mouths but will not speak,
  they have eyes and will not see.
They have ears and will not hear,
  there is no breath in their mouths.
They will be like them, those who make them;
  and all who put their trust in them.
House of Israel, bless the Lord;
  house of Aaron, bless the Lord;
house of Levi, bless the Lord;
  you who fear the Lord, bless the Lord.
Blessed be the Lord from Zion,
  whose abode is Jerusalem.
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.
Blessed is the kingdom of our father David which has come among us. Alleluia.

CanticleMagnificat

My soul rejoices in the Lord

They all persevered together in prayer with Mary, the mother of Jesus. Alleluia.
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.
They all persevered together in prayer with Mary, the mother of Jesus. Alleluia.

Prayers and intercessions
Let us bless the Father, who has poured on the nations the grace of the Spirit.
May the grace of the Spirit spread through the world.
Father, you gave your beloved Son as a light for all peoples;
  open the eyes of a blind world to see Christ as the future of humanity.
May the grace of the Spirit spread through the world.
You anointed Christ with the power of the Spirit for his ministry of salvation;
  may he pass once more among us, healing the sick and doing good for everyone.
May the grace of the Spirit spread through the world.
Send your Holy Spirit to give rest to the weary and to strengthen our faith;
  give life and joy to broken hearts.
May the grace of the Spirit spread through the world.
Fulfil the hope of the faithful departed;
  raise them up in glory when Christ comes again.
May the grace of the Spirit spread through the world.

Pater noster, qui es in cælis:

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 nobis æternitátis áditum glorificatióne Christi tui et Sancti Spíritus illuminatióne reserásti, concéde, quǽsumus, ut, tanti doni párticeps, devótio nostra profíciat et ad fídei transferámur augméntum.
Per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum,
qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus,
per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Lord God,
  you opened for us the way to eternal life
  when Christ your Son was taken up to glory
  and your Holy Spirit came to enlighten your Church.
Grant that, as we share in so great a gift,
  our faith may grow ever stronger,
  our service ever more loyal.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

Dóminus nos benedícat, et ab omni malo deféndat, et ad vitam perdúcat ætérnam.
  Amen.
The Lord bless us, and keep us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.
  Amen.
