Ad Missam In Die
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
A Lamb the sheep redeemeth:
Death and life have contended
Speak, Mary, declaring
“Bright angels attesting,
Victimae paschali laudes
Agnus redemit oves:
Mors et vita duello
Dic nobis Maria,
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!
