and I shall be cleansed;

Thou shalt wash me,
and I shall become whiter than snow.
Have mercy on me, O God,
according to Thy great mercy.
Glory be to the Father,

and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be
a world without end. Amen.

Vidi Aquam

Vidi Aquam
The rite of sprinkling the congregation with holy water before the principal Mass on Sunday during Easter-tide.
I saw water flowing from the right side of the temple, alleluia;
and all they to whom that water came were saved,
and they shall say:
Alleluia, Alleluia
Praise the Lord, for He is good:
for His mercy endureth forever.
Glory to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.

Subvenite Sancti Dei

Subvenite Sancti Dei
For a burial service, when the procession has entered the church, one of the cantors intones the following Responsory, which is continued by two alternate choirs.
Help him, Saints of God.
Meet him, Angels of the Lord.
Receive his soul and present it to the Highest.
May Christ, who called you, receive you,
and may the Angels carry you to the bosom of Abraham.
Receive his soul and present it to the Highest.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
Let your eternal light shine on them.

Te Deum Laudamus

Te Deum Laudamus
In the traditional Office, the Te Deum is sung at the end of Matins on all days when the Gloria is said at Mass; those days are all Sundays outside Advent, Septuagesima, Lent, and Passiontide; on all Feasts except Maundy Thursday and the Holy Innocents unless it should fall on Sunday; and on all Ferias during Eastertide.
We praise thee, O God;
we acknowledge thee to be Lord.
All the earth doth worship thee:
the Father everlasting.
To thee all the Angels cry aloud:
the heavens, and all the powers therein:
To thee Cherubim and Seraphim continually do cry:
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of the majesty of thy glory.
The glorious choir of the Apostles,
The white-robed army of Martyrs praise thee.
The Holy Church throughout all the world doth acknowledge thee,
The Father of an infinite majesty,
Thy adorable, true and only Son:
The Holy Ghost also, the Comforter,
Thou art the King of Glory, O Christ.
Thou art the everlasting Son of the Father.
When thou didst take upon thee to deliver man,
thou didst not abhor the Virgin's womb.
When thou hadst overcome the sting of death,
thou didst open the kingdom of heaven to all believers,
Thou sittest at the right hand of God in the glory of the Father.
We believe that thou shalt come to be our judge,
We pray thee, therefore, help thy servants,
whom thou hast redeemed with thy precious blood.
Make them to be numbered with thy saints in everlasting glory.
O Lord, save thy people, and bless thy inheritance.
Govern them, and lift them up for ever.
Day by day we bless thee.
And we praise thy name for ever;yea, for ever and ever.
Deign, O Lord, this day, to keep us without sin.
Have mercy on us, O Lord; have mercy on us.
O Lord, let thy mercy be shown to us; as we have hoped in thee.
In thee have I hoped, O Lord; let me not be confounded for ever.

Veni creator Spiritus

Veni creator Spiritus
This hymn is believed to have been written by Rabanus Maurus in the 9th century. It is normally performed during the feast of Pentecost (at both Terce and Vespers). It is also sung at occasions such as the entrance of Cardinals to the Sistine Chapel to elect a new pope, as well as the consecration of bishops, the ordination of priests, the dedication of churches, and other solemn events.
COME, O Creator, Spirit blest,
And in our souls take up Thy rest;
Come with Thy grace and heavenly aid
To fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
Great Paraclete, to Thee we cry,
O highest Gift of God most high,
O Fount of life, O Fire, O Love,
And sweet anointing from above.
Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts are known;
The finger of God's hand we own;
The promise of the Father Thou!
Who dost the tongue with power endow.
Kindle our senses from above,
And make our hearts o'erflow with love;
with patience firm and virtue high
the weakness of our flesh supply.
Drive far from us the foe we dread,
And grant us Thy true peace instead;
So shall we not, with Thee for guide,
Turn from the path of life aside.
Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow
The Father and the Son to know;
And Thee, through endless times confessed,
Of both the eternal Spirit blest.
All glory while ages run,
Be to the Father and the Son,
Who rose from death; the same to Thee,
O Holy Ghost, eternally. Amen.
