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)

 

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 100

 

My song is of mercy and justice;

I sing to you, O Lord.

 

I will walk in the way of perfection.

O when, Lord, will you come?

 

I will walk with blameless heart

within my house;

 

I will not set before my eyes

whatever is base.

 

I will hate the ways of the crooked;

they shall not be my friends.

 

The false-hearted must keep away;

the wicked I disown.

 

The man who slanders his neighbor in secret

I will bring to silence.

 

The man of proud looks and haughty heart

I will never endure.

 

I look to the faithful in the land

that they may dwell with me.

 

He who walks in the way of perfection

shall be my friend.

 

No man who practices deceit

shall live within by house.

 

No man who utters lies shall stand

before my eyes.

 

Morning by morning I will silence

all the wicked in the land,

 

uprooting from the city of the Lord

all who do evil.

 

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 87

 

 

Lord my God, I call for help by day;

I cry at night before you.

 

Let my prayer come into your presence.

O turn your ear to my cry.

 

For my soul is filled with evils;

my life is on the brink of the grave.

 

I am reckoned as one in the tomb;

I have reached the end of my strength,

 

like one alone among the dead,

like the slain lying in their graves,

 

like those you remember no more,

cut off, as they are, from your hand.

 

You have laid me in the depths of the tomb,

in places that are dark, in the depths.

 

Your anger weighs down upon me;

I am drowned beneath your waves.

 

You have taken away my friends

and made me hateful in their sight.

 

Imprisoned, I cannot escape;

my eyes are sunken with grief.

 

I call to you, Lord, all the day long;

to you I stretch out my hands.

 

Will you work your wonders for the dead?

Will the shades stand and praise you?

 

Will your love be told in the grave

or your faithfulness among the dead?

 

Will your wonders be known in the dark?

or your justice in the land of oblivion?

 

As for me, Lord, I call to you for help:

in the morning my prayer comes before you.

 

Lord, why do you reject me?

Why do you hide your face?

 

Wretched, close to death from my youth,

I have borne your trials; I am numb.

 

Your fury has swept down upon me;

your terrors have utterly destroyed me.

 

They surround me all the day like a flood,

they assail me all together.

 

Friend and neighbor you have taken away;

my one companion is darkness.

 

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 113A

 

When Israel came forth from Egypt,

Jacob’s sons from an alien people,

 

Judah became the Lord’s temple,

Israel became his kingdom.

 

The sea fled at the sight:

the Jordan turned back on its course,

 

the mountains leapt like rams

and the hills like yearling sheep.

 

Why was it, sea, that you fled,

that you turned back, Jordan, on your course?

 

Mountains, that you leapt like rams,

hills, like yearling sheep?

                                                                                                                                                                                                  

Tremble, O earth, before the Lord,

in the presence of the God of Jacob,

 

who turns the rock into a pool

and flint into a spring of water.

 

 

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.

 
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.
