All: May flights of angels lead you on your way to paradise,

And heaven’s eternal eternal day! May martyrs greet you after

Death’s dark night and bid you enter into Zion’s light

May choirs of angels sing you to your rest with once poor

Laz’rus, now forever blest

Or

No one can come to me unless the father draw him

And I will raise him up,

And I will raise him up

And I will raise him up on the last day

Refrain

Leader: yes, Lord I Believe that you are the Christ

The son of God

The son of god who came into the world

Leader: I am the way and the truth; I am the life.

No one comes to the Father,

Except he come through me, except he come to me

PSALMODY

your soul

Psalm 121

From where shall come to my help

My help shall come from the Lord

Israel’s guard.

At your right hand he stands:

By day the sun shall not smite you nor

The moon in the night

Lord hear my voice!

To the voice of my pleading

For this we revere you.

From all its iniquity.

Canticle Philippians 2:6-11

Leader: Though he was in a form of God,

Jesus did not deem equality with God

Something to be grasped at

All: Rather, he emptied himself

And took a form of a slave

Being born in the likeness of men.

Leader: He was known to be of human estate,

And it was thus that he humbled himself,

Obediently accepting even death, Death on a cross!

All: Because this,

God greatly exalted him

And bestowed on him the name

Above every other name

Leader: So that at Jesus’ name

Every knee must bend

In the heavens, on the earth,

And under the earth

All: and every tongue proclaim

To the glory of God the Father:

JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!

READING: 1 Corinthians 15:55-57

Reader: A Reading from the first letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians
