Invitatory 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.

 

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)

 

 

 

Psalm 37

 

O Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger;

do not punish me, Lord, in your rage.

 

Your arrows have sunk deep in me;

your hand has come down upon me.

 

Through your anger all my body is sick;

through my sin, there is no health in my limbs.

 

My guilt towers higher than my head;

it is a weight too heavy to bear.

 

My wounds are foul and festering,

the result of my own folly.

 

I am bowed and brought to my knees.

I go mourning all the day long.

 

All my frame burns with fever;

all my body is sick.

 

Spent and utterly crushed,

I cry aloud in anguish of heart.

 

O Lord, you know all my longing;

my groans are not hidden from you.

 

My heart throbs, my strength is spent;

the very light has gone from my eyes.

 

My friends avoid me like a leper;

those closest to me stand afar off.

 

Those who plot against my life lay snares;

those who seek my ruin speak of harm,

planning treachery all the day long.

 

But I am like the deaf who cannot hear,

like the dumb unable to speak,

 

I am like a man who hears nothing

in whose mouth is no defense.

 

I count on you, O Lord;

it is you, Lord God, who will answer.

 

I pray: “Do not let them mock me,

those who triumph if my foot should slip

 

For I am on the point of falling

and my pain is always before me.

 

I confess that I am guilty

and my sin fills me with dismay.

 

My wanton enemies are numberless

and my lying foes are many.

 

They repay me evil for good

and attack me for seeking what is right.

 

O Lord, do not forsake me!

My God, do not stay afar off!

 

Make haste and come to my help,

O Lord, my God, my savior!

 

 

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 142

 

Lord, listen to my prayer, 

turn your ear to my appeal.

You are faithful, you are just, give answer.

 

Do not call your servant to judgment,

for no one is just in your sight.

 

The enemy pursues my soul;

he has crushed my life to the ground;

 

he has made me dwell in darkness

like the dead, long forgotten.

 

Therefore my spirit fails;

my heart is numb within me.

 

I remember the days that are past;

I ponder all your works.

 

I muse on what your hand has wrought

and to you I stretch out my hands.

Like a parched land my soul thirsts for you.

 

Lord, make haste and answer;

for my spirit fails within me.

 

Do not hide your face,

lest I become like those in the grave.

 

In the morning let me know your love,

for I put my trust in you.

 

Make me know the way I should walk;

to you I lift up my soul.

 

Rescue me, Lord, from my enemies;

I have fled to you for refuge.

 

Teach me to do your will,

for you, O Lord, are my God.

 

Let your good spirit guide me

in ways that are level and smooth.

 

For your name’s sake, Lord, save my life;

in your justice save  my soul from distress.

 

In your love make an end of my foes

destroy all those who oppress me

for I am your servant, O Lord.

  

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.

Responsorial Psalm

 

 

 

Song of Mary

 

 

 

 

 

 

My soul glorifies the Lord,

my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.

 

He looks on his servant in her nothingness;

henceforth all ages will call me blessed.

 

The Almighty works marvels for me.

Holy is his name!

 

His mercy is from age to age,

on those who fear him.

 

He puts forth his arm in strength

and scatters the proud-hearted

 

He casts the mighty from their thrones

and raises the lowly.

 

He fills the starving with good things,

sends the rich away empty.

 

He protects Israel, his servant,

remembering his mercy,

 

The mercy promised to our fathers,

for Abraham and his sons for ever.

 

 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.
