Hymn of the Jubilee of Mercy

With the approach of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy we will be introducing the official Hymn of the Jubilee of Mercy at Mass on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary. You may have noticed the yellow card already in the pews. One side is graced by the Hymn for the Holy Year of Mercy and the other side the Song of Jubilee. On this page we will have a video link, PDF document of the hymn in English and a link to the official Year of Mercy website.

Please note that the video link features the Year of Mercy Hymn sung in Latin (it’s the only one available), we will be singing the Hymn of Mercy in English. This might be a little confusing to some at first but if you listen carefully and follow along I’m confident you can pick it up and be ready to sing.
