Hymn

(varies)

 

O splendor of the Father’s ray

Extending to us light from light

O Light of Light, O Source of Life

O Day who made the light of day

 

O come True Son and live in us

Spread your eternal light on us

And may the Spirit’s radiance shine

To guide our senses on this day

 

The golden dawn brings on the sun

May the True Son arise in us

The Son is with the Father one

The Father also with the Son

 

Praised be the Father and the Son

And Holy Spirit equally

The Triune Godhead Three in One

Now and for all eternity

 

Amen

 


 

Psalm 49

 

The God of gods, the Lord

has spoken and summoned the earth,

from the rising of the sun to its setting.

 

Out of Zion’s perfect beauty he shines.

Our God comes, he keeps silence no longer.

 

Before him fire devours,

around him tempest rages.

 

He calls on the heavens and the earth

to witness his judgment of his people.

 

Summon before me my people

who made covenant with me by sacrifice.”

 

The heavens proclaim his justice,

for he, God, is the judge.

 

Listen, my people, I will speak;

Israel, I will testify against you,

 

for I am God, your God.

I accuse you, lay the charge before you.

 

I find no fault with your sacrifices,

your offerings are always before me.

 

I do not ask more bullocks from your farms,

nor goats from among your herds.

 

For I own all the beasts of the forest,

beasts in their thousands on my hills.

 

I know all the birds in the sky,

all that moves in the field belongs to me.

 

Were I hungry, I would not tell you,

for I own the world and all it holds.

 

Do you think I eat the flesh of bulls,

or drink the blood of goats?

 

Pay your sacrifice of thanksgiving to God

and render him your votive offerings.

 

Call on me in the day of distress.

I will free you and you shall honor me.”

 

But God says to the wicked: 

How can you recite my commandments

and take my covenant on your lips,

 

you who despise my law

and throw my words to the winds,

 

you who see a thief and go with him;

who throw in your lot with adulterers,

 

who unbridle your mouth for evil

and whose tongue is  plotting crime,

 

you who sit and malign your brother

and slander your own mother’s son.

 

You do this, and should I keep silence?

Do you think that I am like you?

 

Mark this, you who never think of God,

lest I seize you and you cannot escape;

 

a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors me

and I will show God’s salvation to the upright.”

 

 

Doxology

 

Praise the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit,

both now and for ever,

 

The God who is, who was, and is to come,

at the end of the ages.

 

 

  

Psalm 5

 

To my words give ear, O Lord,

give heed to my groaning.

 

Attend to the sound of my cries,

my King and my God.

 

It is you whom I invoke, O Lord.

In the morning you hear me;

 

in the morning I offer you my prayer,

watching and waiting.

 

You are no God who loves evil;

no sinner is your guest.

 

The boastful shall not stand their ground

before your face.

 

You hate all who do evil,

you destroy all who lie.

 

The deceitful and bloodthirsty man

the Lord detests.

 

But I through the greatness of your love

have access to your house.

 

I bow down before your holy temple,

filled with awe.

 

Lead me, Lord, in your justice, 

because of those who lie in wait;

make clear your way before me.

 

No truth can be found in their mouths,

their heart is all mischief,

 

their throat a wide-opened grave,

all honey their speech.

 

Declare them guilty, O God.

Let them fail in their designs.

 

Drive them out for their many offenses;

for they have defied you.

 

All those you protect shall be glad

and ring out their joy.

 

You shelter them; in you they rejoice,

those who love your name.

 

It is you who bless the just man, Lord:

you surround him with favor as with a shield.

 

 

Doxology

 

Praise the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit,

both now and for ever,

 

The God who is, who was, and is to come,

at the end of the ages.

 

 

Short Reading

Week 1

2 Thess 3:10b-13

 

Anyone unwilling to work should not eat.  For we hear that some of you are living in idleness, mere busybodies, not doing any work.  Now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living.  Brothers and sisters, do not be weary in doing what is right.

 

 

Responsorial Psalm

 

 Blessed be the Lord our God.

Blessed from age to age.

 

Blessed be the Lord our God.

Blessed from age to age.

 

His marvelous works are beyond compare.

Blessed from age to age.

 

Praise the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit,

both now and for ever,

 

The God who is, who was, and is to come,

at the end of the ages.

 

Blessed be the Lord our God.

Blessed from age to age.

 


Benedictus Antiphon

 

Zechariah uttered this prophecy:

“Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel!”

 

 

Song of Zachary

 

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel !

He has visited his people and redeemed them.

 

He has raised up for us a mighty savior

in the house of David his servant,

 

As he promised by the lips of holy men,

those who were his prophets from of old.

 

A savior who would free us from our foes,

from the hands of all who hate us.

 

So his love for our fathers is fulfilled

and his holy covenant remembered.

 

He swore to Abraham our father 

to grant us that, free from fear,

and saved from the hands of our foes,

 

We might serve him in holiness and justice

all the days of your life in his presence.

 

As for you, little child, you shall be called

a prophet of God, the Most High.

 

You shall go ahead of the Lord,

to prepare his ways before him.

 

To make known to his people their salvation

through the forgiveness of their sins,

 

The loving-kindness of the heart of our God

who visits us like the dawn from on high.

 

He will give light to those in darkness, 

those who dwell in the shadow of death,

and guide us into the way of peace.

 

Doxology

 

Praise the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit,

both now and for ever,

 

The God who is, who was, and is to come,

at the end of the ages.
