Psalm 116

 

O praise the Lord, all you nations,

acclaim him all you peoples!

 

Strong is his love for us;

he is faithful for ever.

 

 

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. 

 


 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 102

 

My soul, give thanks to the Lord,

all my being, bless his holy name.

 

My soul, give thanks to the Lord

and never forget all his blessings.

 

It is he who forgives all your guilt,

who heals every one of your ills,

 

who redeems your life from the grave,

who crowns you with love and compassion,

 

who fills your life with good things,

renewing your youth like an eagle’s.

 

The Lord does deeds of justice,

gives judgment for all who are oppressed.

 

He made known his ways to Moses

and his deeds to Israel’s sons.

 

The Lord is compassion and love,

slow to anger and rich in mercy.

 

His wrath will come to an end;

he will not be angry for ever.

 

He does not treat us according to our sins

nor repay us according to our faults.

 

For as the heavens are high above the earth

so strong is his love for those who fear him.

 

As far as the east is from the west

so far does he remove our sins.

 

As a father has compassion on his sons,

the Lord has pity on those who fear him.

 

for he knows of what we are made,

he remembers that we are dust.

 

As for man, his days are like grass;

he flowers like the flower of the field;

 

the wind blows and he is gone

and his place never sees him again.

 

But the love of the Lord is everlasting

upon those who hold him in fear;

 

his justice reaches out to children’s children

when they keep his covenant in truth,

when they keep his will in their mind.

 

The Lord has set his sway in heaven

and his kingdom is ruling over all.

 

Give thanks to the Lord, all his angels,

mighty in power, fulfilling his word,

who heed the voice of his word.

 

Give thanks to the Lord, all his hosts,

his servants who do his will.

 

Give thanks to the Lord, all his works,

in every place where he rules.

My soul, give thanks to the Lord!

 

 

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 35

 

Sin speaks to the sinner

in the depths of his heart.

 

There is no fear of God

before his eyes.

 

He so flatters himself in his mind

that he knows not his guilt.

 

In his mouth are mischief and deceit.

All wisdom is gone.

 

He plots the defeat of goodness

as he lies on his bed.

 

He has set his foot on evil ways,

he clings to what is evil.

 

Your love, Lord, reaches to heaven;

your truth to the skies.

 

Your justice is like God’s mountain,

your judgments like the deep.

 

To both man and beast you give protection.

O Lord, how precious is your love.

 

My God, the sons of men

find refuge in the shelter of your wings.

 

They feast on the riches of your house;

they drink from the stream of your delight.

 

In you is the source of life

and in your light we see light.

 

Keep on loving those who know you,

doing justice for upright hearts.

 

Let the foot of the proud not crush me

nor the hand of the wicked cast me out.

 

See how the evil-doers fall !

Flung down, they shall never arise.

 

 

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

Jer 15:16

 

Your words were found,

and I ate them,

and your words became to me a joy

and the delight of my heart;

for I am called by your name,

O Lord, God of hosts.

 

 

 

 

Benedictus Antiphon

 

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel! 

He has visited and redeemed his people.

 

 

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.
