HYMN

Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb,
our garments cleansed in him,
saved and made new by Love,
we sing praise to you, Lord Christ.

With you we are raised on the Cross,
with you, baptized into your death,
in you, O Christ, we are now risen,
and restored to life in the heart of the Father.

O Christ, your life is an immense font
of joy, springing up eternally;
unending splendor, in you is immersed
the human smallness of the redeemed.

Our day passes, declining;
Lord, remain with us this evening,
and may the certainty of our faith
light up the advancing night.

Grant that our death be absorbed
by the glorious light of the Resurrection
and, having died your own death,
may we live in you, who are our life.

O Father of kindness, we ask you this
through your Son who is risen,
and through the eternal Love who leads us
toward the sweet light of your face.
Amen.

Or another suitable hymn approved by ecclesiastical authority.

Ant. 1 You have been bought at a great price.
Glorify God, therefore, in your body.


PSALM 115                                               Praise to the true God
You turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God (1Titus 1:9).

Not to us, Lord, not to us, †
but to your name give glory, *
because of your faithfulness and love.

Why should the nations say, *
“Where is their God?”
Our God is in heaven; *
whatever God wills is done.

Their idols are silver and gold, *
the work of human hands.
They have mouths but do not speak,*
eyes but do not see.

They have ears but do not hear, *
noses but do not smell.

They have hands but do not feel, †
feet but do not walk, *
and no sound rises from their throats.

Their makers shall be like them, *
all who trust in them.

The house of Israel trusts in the Lord, *
who is their help and shield.
The house of Aaron trusts in the Lord, *
who is their help and shield.

Those who fear the Lord trust in the Lord, *
who is their help and shield.

The Lord remembers us and will bless us, †
will bless the house of Israel, *
will bless the house of Aaron,

Will bless those who fear the Lord, *
small and great alike.

May the Lord increase your number, *
you and your descendants.

May you be blessed by the Lord, *
who made heaven and earth.
The heavens belong to the Lord, *
but the earth is given to us.

The dead do not praise the Lord, *
all those gone down into silence.
It is we who bless the Lord, *
both now and forever.

Ant. 1 You have been bought at a great price.
Glorify God, therefore, in your body.

Ant. 2 May all creation with one voice
sing the power of the blood of Christ.

PSALM 148                                                Glorification of God, Lord and Creator
To the one who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor, glory and might, forever and ever (Revelation 5:13).

Praise the Lord from the heavens; *
give praise in the heights.
Praise him, all you angels; *
give praise, all you hosts.

Praise him, sun and moon; *
give praise, all shining stars.
Praise him, highest heavens, *
you waters above the heavens.

Let them all praise the Lord’s name; *
for the Lord commanded and they were created,
assigned them duties forever, *
gave them tasks that will never change.

Praise the Lord from the earth, *
you sea monsters and all deep waters;
you lightning and hail, snow and clouds, *
storm winds that fulfill his command;

You mountains and all hills, *
fruit trees and all cedars;
you animals wild and tame, *
you creatures that crawl and fly;

you kings of the earth and all peoples, *
princes and all who govern on earth;
young men and girls *
women too, old and young alike.

Let them all praise the Lord’s name, †
for his name alone is exalted, *
majestic above earth and heaven.

The Lord has lifted high the horn of his people. †
A hymn of praise to the glory of all the faithful, *
of Israel, the people near to their God.


Ant. 2 May all creation with one voice
sing the power of the blood of Christ.

Ant. 3 With the blood of his cross,
Christ has reconciled earthly beings and those of heaven.


CANTICLE Revelation 4:11, 5: 9, 10, 12                                                       Hymn of the Redeemed

Worthy are you, Lord our God,
to receive glory *
and honor and power,

for you created all things; †
because of your will they came to be *
and were created.

Worthy are you O Lord,
to receive the scroll *
and to break open its seals,

for you were slain †
and with your blood you purchased for God *
those from every tribe and tongue, people and nation.

You made them for our God
a kingdom of priests, *
and they will reign on earth.

Worthy is the Lamb that was slain †
to receive power and riches, wisdom and strength, *
honor and glory and blessing.


Ant. 3 With the blood of his cross,
Christ has reconciled earthly beings and those of heaven.


READING                                                                                   Hebrews 9:11-12

When Christ came as high priest of the good things that have come to be, passing through the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made by hands, that is, not belonging to this creation, he entered once for all into the sanctuary, not with the blood of goats and calves but with his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption.


RESPONSORY

R We announce Jesus, Love crucified: * his blood reconciles earth with heaven.
-- We announce Jesus, Love crucified: his blood reconciles earth with heaven.
V. He gives peace and redemption to all;
-- his blood reconciles earth with heaven.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
-- We announce Jesus, Love crucified: his blood reconciles earth with heaven.


Magnificat Ant. With the Virgin Mother, origin of the blood of Christ,
let us rejoice in God, our salvation.

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; *
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.

For he has looked upon his handmaid's lowliness; *
behold, from now on all ages will call me blessed.

The Mighty One has done great things for me, *
and holy is his name.

His mercy is from age to age *
to those who fear him.

He has shown might with his arm, *
dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart.

He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones*
but lifted up the lowly.

The hungry he has filled with good things; *
the rich he has sent away empty.

He has helped Israel his servant, *
remembering his mercy,

according to his promise to our fathers, *
to Abraham and to his descendants forever.

Magnificat Ant. With the Virgin Mother, origin of the blood of Christ,
let us rejoice in God, our salvation

INTERCESSIONS

With faith and gratitude, let us beseech Christ who has reconciled humanity with God in his blood:
By your blood poured out for us, hear us, Lord Jesus!

Lord Jesus, you gave your life in a sacrifice of expiation at the close of day;
- we pray for the Church: make her an effective instrument of unity, communion and peace for the whole human race.

Lord Jesus, your blood poured out for us is an expression of your immense love;
- we pray for all peoples: guide and hear their desires for freedom, justice and truth.

Lord Jesus, with your precious blood you justified us before the Father;
- we pray for the poor, the suffering, and the marginalized: in their need, let them experience solidarity, help and support from all of us.

Lord Jesus, by the power of your blood you free us from the Evil One;
- we pray for all those who proclaim the Gospel: give them honesty in communication, integrity of life, and joy in sharing your victory over the powers of evil.

Lord Jesus, with your blood you purify and nourish your Church;
- we pray for this community: may the Eucharist, summit and source of life, be its daily food for mission.

Lord Jesus, crucified and risen for us, you granted pardon to the repentant thief;
- we pray for our dear deceased relatives and friends: grant them a share in the eternal nuptial banquet in the glory of the blessed.

Our Father.

Prayer

Father, who through the blood of Jesus your Son, the Lamb sacrificed on the cross, redeemed us, sanctified us, and made us your people; grant that all may accept this gift of your love, celebrate it joyfully in the Spirit, and drink of it in the Eucharistic chalice, the sign of your covenant and blessing. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever
