Psalm 122

 

To you have I lifted up my eyes,

you who dwell in the heavens;

 

my eyes, like the eyes of slaves

on the hand of their lords.

 

Like the eyes of a servant

on the hand of her mistress,

 

so our eyes are on the Lord our God

till he show us his mercy.

 

Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy.

We are filled with contempt.

 

Indeed, all too full is our soul  

with the scorn of the rich,

with the proud man’s disdain.

 

 

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 123

 

 “If the Lord had not been on our side,”

this is Israel’s song.

 

 “If the Lord had not been on our side

when men rose up against us,

 

then would they have swallowed us alive

when their anger was kindled.

 

Then would the waters have engulfed us,

the torrent gone over us;

 

over our head would have swept

the raging waters.”

 

Blessed be the Lord who did not give us

a prey to their teeth!

 

Our life, like a bird, has escaped

from the snare of the fowler.

 

Indeed the snare has been broken

and we have escaped

 

Our help is in the name of the Lord,

who made heaven and earth.

 

 

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 124

 

Those who put their trust in the Lord 

are like Mount Zion, that cannot be shaken,

that stands for ever.

 

Jerusalem!  The mountains surround her; 

so the Lord surrounds his people

both now and for ever.

 

For the scepter of the wicked shall not rest

over the land of the just,

 

for fear that the hands of the just

should turn to evil.

 

Do  good, Lord, to those who are good,

to the upright of heart;

 

but the crooked and those who do evil, 

drive them away!

On Israel, 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.

 

 

Short Reading

 

Proverbs 3:13-15

 

Happy the man who finds wisdom,

the man who gains understanding!

 

For her profit is better than profit in silver

and better than gold is her revenue;

 

she is more precious than corals,

and none of your choice possessions

can compare with her.

Let us pray

 

Lord God, you made known to Peter your desire to bring all nations to salvation.

Let all our work give you praise and carry out your loving plan.

 

Amen

 

 

 

 

 

 

Antiphon to Mary

 

Rejoice O Mary, Mother of Christ

For you alone were privileged to bear

Christ the Lord.

 

 

Dismissal

 

May the Lord be with you

 

And with your spirit

 

 

May the Almighty God bless you,

the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

 

Amen

 

 

 Let us bless the Lord

 

Thanks be to God
