Mass During the Day

Ad Missam In Die

ResurrectionP

I have risen, and I am with you still, alleluia.
You have laid your hand upon me, alleluia.
Too wonderful for me, this knowledge, alleluia, alleluia.

Resurrexi, et adhuc tecum sum, alleluia!
Posuisti super me manum tuam, alleluia!
Mirabilis facta est scientia tua, alleluia, alleluia!

Today we hear the Gloria and the Alleluia that was chanted for the first time since Lent during the Easter Vigil echo during the Mass of the Day. The gospel will be preceded by the chanting of the Victimae Pascalae Laudes.

Christians, to the Paschal victim
Offer your thankful praises!

A Lamb the sheep redeemeth:
Christ, who only is sinless,
Reconcileth sinners to the Father.

Death and life have contended
in that combat stupendous:
the Prince of life, who died,
reigns immortal.

Speak, Mary, declaring
what thou sawest, wayfaring:
“The tomb of Christ, who is living,
the glory of Jesus’ resurrection;

“Bright angels attesting,
the shroud and napkin resting.
“Yea, Christ my hope is arisen;
to Galilee he goes before you.”

Christ indeed
from death is risen,
our new life obtaining;
have mercy, victor King,
ever reigning!
Amen. Alleluia!

Victimae paschali laudes
immolent Christiani.

Agnus redemit oves:
Christus innocens Patri
reconciliavit peccatores.

Mors et vita duello
conflixere mirando:
dux vitae mortuus,
regnat vivus.

Dic nobis Maria,
quid vidisti in via?
Sepulcrum Christi viventis,
et gloriam vidi resurgentis:

Angelicos testes,
sudarium, et vestes.
Surrexit Christus spes mea:
praecedet suos in Galilaeam.

Scimus Christum
surrexisse
a mortuis vere:
tu nobis, victor Rex,
miserere.
Amen. Alleluia!

Then after the homily we renew our baptismal vows and are sprinkled with the water blessed during the Paschal Night. This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad!
