The Communion song for the Second Sunday after Epiphany is "Laetabimur in salutari tuo": "We shall rejoice in your salvation."

Here's the mp3 from JoguesChant, and the score:

Lovely, eh? The text is from Psalm 20:5:
5 We will rejoice in your salvation,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners!
May the LORD fulfill all your petitions.

And here's a gorgeous thing! It's "Exaudiat te Dominus" by André Campra, which I believe comes from his "Motets for the Royal Chapel." The fourth movement (beginning at around 5:40) is a version of Laetabimur; it's well worth your time to listen to the whole thing, though. It's a truly fine musical ensemble performing a splendid piece. I adore the Grands Motets style. Here's the playlist and etc.:
1 Exaudiat te Dominus
2 Mittat tibi auxilium
3 Memor sit
4 Laetabimur in salutari tuo
5 Impleat Dominus
6 Hi in curribus
7 Ipsi obligati sunt
8 Domine salvum fac regem
9 Et exadui nos
