1 Thessalonians 3:12–4:2
May the Lord confirm your hearts in holiness when Christ comes.
Ad te levavi animam meam, Deus meus, in te
confido, non erubescam. Neque irrideant me
inimici mei, etenim universi qui te exspectant
cf. Psalm 25(24):1–3
To you, I lift up my soul, O my God. In
you, I have trusted; let me not be put to
shame. Nor let my enemies exult over
me; and let none who hope in you be put
The Lord be with you.
Luke 21:25–28, 34–36
Your liberation is near at hand.
I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I
have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have
done and in what I have failed to do,
through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault;
therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin, all the Angels and Saints,
and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.
May almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us our sins, and bring us
to everlasting life.
Old Scottish Chant
PRAYER OVER THE OFFERINGS
Dominus dabit benignitatem, et terra nostra
dabit fructum suum.
The Lord will bestow his bounty, and
our earth shall yield its increase.
adapted from Palestrina
I look from afar: and lo, I see the power of God coming, and a cloud covering the whole earth.
Go ye out to meet him and say:
Tell us, art thou he that should come to reign over thy people Israel?
High and low, rich and poor, one with another, Go ye out to meet him and say:
Hear, O thou Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep,
Tell us, art thou he that should come?
Stir up thy strength, O Lord, and come to reign over thy people, Israel.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

BLESSING AND DISMISSAL
Peace be to you and grace from him Who freed us from our sins,
Who loved us all and shed his blood That we might saved be.
Sing holy, holy to our Lord, The Lord, Almighty God,
Who was and is and is to come; Sing holy, holy, Lord!
Rejoice in heaven, all ye that dwell therein,
Rejoice on earth, ye saints below, For Christ is coming soon!
E’en so, Lord Jesus, quickly come, And night shall be no more;
They need no light, nor lamp, nor sun, For Christ will be their All!
