HYMN

Clap your hands, all you peoples, *
sing unto God with a voice of jubilation.
For the Lord high and mighty *
has shown to us his mercy,
For he has not spared his own Son *
but has delivered him up in our behalf,
That we might be redeemed by his blood *
and freed from our sins;
That justified in his blood *
we might be saved from his wrath;
That we who were separated from him *
might be reconciled through the blood of his Son.
O Lord, my God, what can I render unto you *
for all the good you have bestowed upon me?
I will take the chalice of salvation *
and I will call upon the power of this blood.
Sing to Jesus, all you saints, *
and make known the memory of his holiness.
For he has loved us and has washed us in his blood *
and he has become our helper and our redeemer.
Blessed forever be the blood of Christ *
which has wrought such wonders in us.
Blessed be Jesus for all eternity, *
and may the heavens and the earth
be filled with the glory of his blood.
Come, let us adore Christ, the Son of God *
who has redeemed us with his blood. Amen.

Or another suitable hymn approved by ecclesiastical authority.


Ant. 1 Let us immerse ourselves in the opened side of Jesus Christ;
let us quench our thirst in the stream of his blood.

PSALM 63: 2-9                                                      A soul thirsting for God
The Church thirsts for her Savior, yearning to drink at the fount of living water that springs up for eternal life. (Cf Cassiodorus).

O God, you are my God, for you I long; *
for you my soul is thirsting.
My body pines for you *
like a dry, weary land without water.

So I gaze on you in the sanctuary *
to see your strength and your glory.
For your love is better than life, *
my lips will speak your praise.

So I will bless you all my life, *
in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul shall be filled as with a banquet, *
my mouth shall praise you with joy.

On my bed I remember you. *
On you I muse through the night
for you have been my help; *
in the shadow of your wings I rejoice.

My soul clings to you; *
your right hand holds me fast.

Ant. 1 Let us immerse ourselves in the opened side of Jesus Christ;
let us quench our thirst in the stream of his blood.

Ant. 2 Heaven and earth, every tongue and every living creature,
proclaim the redemption of the Son of God.

we rejoice for the gift of salvation.

PSALM 149                                                    The joy of God’s holy people
Let the sons of the Church, the children of the new people, rejoice in Christ, their King (Hesychius).

Sing a new song to the Lord, *
his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel rejoice in its maker, *
let Zion’s sons exult in their king.

Let them praise his name with dancing *
and make music with timbrel and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people. *
He crowns the poor with salvation.

Let the faithful rejoice in their glory, *
shout for joy and take their rest.
Let the praise of God be on their lips *
and a two-edged sword in their hand,

to deal out vengeance to the nations *
and punishment on all the peoples;
to bind their kings in chains *
and their nobles in fetters of iron;

to carry out the sentence pre-ordained; *
this honor is for all his faithful.

Ant. 3 With the Church, born from the side of Christ
we rejoice for the gift of salvation.


READING                                                                                                1 Peter 2:21-25a

For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his footsteps. “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.” When he was insulted, he returned no insult; when he suffered, he did not threaten; instead, he handed himself over to the one who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body upon the cross, so that, free from sin, we might live for righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.


RESPONSORY
R. Jesus calls us with the voice of his blood: * immerse yourselves in my wounds.
-- Jesus calls us with the voice of his blood: immerse yourselves in my wounds.
V. Come, be washed in this blood;
-- immerse yourselves in my wounds.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
-- Jesus calls us with the voice of his blood: immerse yourselves in my wounds

Benedictus Ant. Seeing the blood, I will pass over you;
thus, when I strike the land of Egypt, no destructive blow will come upon you.

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel; *
he has come to his people and set them free.

He has raised up for us a mighty savior, *
born of the house of his servant David.

Through his holy prophets he promised of old †
that he would save us from our enemies, *
from the hands of all who hate us.

He promised to show mercy to our fathers *
and to remember his holy covenant.

This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham: *
to set us free from the hands of our enemies,

free to worship him without fear, *
holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.

You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High; *
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

to give his people knowledge of salvation *
by the forgiveness of their sins.

In the tender compassion of our God *
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, *
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Glory 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

Benedictus Ant. Seeing the blood, I will pass over you;
thus, when I strike the land of Egypt, no destructive blow will come upon you.


INTERCESSIONS
On this solemnity of the Most Precious Blood of Christ, let us praise the Father in the Holy Spirit and say:
Make us holy in the blood of Jesus!
Father, you desire that the Spouse of your Son be without spot or wrinkle,
- grant that the Church might be renewed continually in the saving power of Christ’s blood.

Father, through the sacrifice of Christ you reconciled heaven with earth,
- grant that all humanity might work toward reconciliation and peace.

Father, you gave us new birth through the offering of your Son,
- grant that our life may always be a sacrifice pleasing to you.

Father, you made one new person in place of the two, through the blood of Christ,
- grant that in the strength of your Spirit all Christians may reach the unity for which Jesus prayed and was sacrificed.

Father, in Jesus, high priest, you obtained for us eternal redemption,
- grant that its saving power might reach every tribe, tongue, people and nation.

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.
