You rise, our wounds upon You,
the nail prints clearly seen,
Your ravaged side still open -
but love has washed them clean.
the pow’r that conquers evil
in You now stands revealed.
We touch You, unbelieving,
and find that we are healed.
Qui luce splendes ordinis
Thoma, benignus accipe
laudes tibi quas pangimus.
Te lucidis in sedibus
Te torquet et dilectio
Quantoque cordis gaudio
Nobisque qui non vidimus
Christo sit omnis gloria,
Saint Thomas, whom the Savior chose
When here on earth, as special friend,
Accept our joyful hymn of praise,
And to our earnest prayer attend.
Your love for Christ made you desire
Your tortured love could not believe
And later when you saw him too
As you once grew to know our Lord,
All glory be to Christ, our Lord,
You are God: we praise you;
You, Christ, are the king of glory,
Te deum laudamus
Dearly beloved brethren, since we have received from the Apostles a heavenly inheritance, let us cry out in gratitude to the Father for all his gifts:
- Lord, the Apostles sing your praises.
Praise to you, Lord, for the feast of body and blood that was handed down to us by the Apostles:
- it refreshes us and gives us life. (R.)
Praise to you for the feast of your word that was prepared for us by the Apostles:
- it fills us with light and brings us joy. (R.)
Praise to you for your holy Church, founded upon the Apostles:
- it draws us together into one body. (R.)
Praise to you for the purification of baptism and penitence, which we believe in together with the Apostles:
- it washes us clean of all sin. (R.)
Our Father, who art in Heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those that trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Grant, almighty God,
that we may glory in the Feast of the blessed Apostle Thomas,
so that we may always be sustained by his intercession
and, believing, may have life
in the name of Jesus Christ your Son,
whom Thomas acknowledged as the Lord.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Thomas, the faithful servant and disciple of Christ,
filled with divine grace, cried out from the depth of his love:
“You are my Lord and my God!”
