This is the traditional Gregorian chant for the offertory of the third Sunday after Easter. The traditional verse (Qui custódit veritátem) has been set for TTB voices (01:19), in which the baritone line uses a Tone 4 psalm tone as its cantus firmus. The chant returns to the psallam Deo meo in keeping with the traditional form of the offertory as a responsory.
Offertorium (Corpus) anon: Graduale Romanum
Lauda ánima mea a Dóminum: laudábo Dóminum in vita mea: psállam Deo meo, quámdiu ero, alleluia.
(Versum) composer: Nicholas Lemme ( *1978)
Qui custódit veritátem in sáeculum: fáciens judícium injúrian patiéntibus: dat escam esuriéntibus.
Translation Praise the Lord, O my soul: I will praise the Lord in my life: I will sing a song to God as long as I shall be, alleluia. Who keepeth truth forever: Who executeth judgment for them that suffer wrong: Who giveth food to the hungry.
