Hymn

(varies)

 

 

 

 

Psalm 21

 

 

My God, my God, why have your forsaken me?

You are far from my plea and the cry of my distress.

 

O my God, I call by day and you give no reply;

I call by night and I find no peace.

 

Yet you, O God, are holy,

enthroned on the praises of Israel.

 

In you our fathers put their trust;

they trusted and you set them free.

 

When they cried to you, they escaped.

In you they trusted and never in vain.

 

But I am a worm and no man,

the butt of men, laughing-stock of the people.

 

All who see me deride me.

They curl their lips, they toss their heads.

 

 “He trusted in the Lord, let him save him;

let him release him if this is his friend.”

 

Yes, it was you who took me from the womb,

entrusted me to my mother’s breast.

 

To you I was committed from my birth,

from my mother’s womb you have been my God.

 

Do not leave me alone in my distress;

Come close, there is none else to help.

 

Many bulls have surrounded me,

fierce bulls of Bashan close me in.

 

Against me they open wide their jaws,

like lions, rending and roaring.

 

Like water I am poured out,

disjointed are all my bones.

 

My heart has become like wax,

it is melted within by breast.

 

Parched as burnt clay is my throat,

my tongue cleaves to my jaws.

 

Many dogs have surrounded me,

a band of the wicked beset me.

 

They tear holes in my hands and my feet

and lay me in the dust of death.

 

I can count every one of my bones.

These people stare at me and gloat;

 

they divide my clothing among them.

They cast lots for my robe.

 

O Lord, do not leave me alone,

my strength, make haste to help me?

 

Rescue my soul from the sword,

my life from the grip of these dogs.

 

Save my life from the jaws of these lions,

my poor soul from the horns of these oxen.

 

I will tell of your name to my brethren

and praise you where they are assembled.

 

 “You who fear the Lord, give him praise

all sons of Jacob, give him glory.

Revere him, Israel’s sons.”

 

 “For he has never despised

nor scorned the  poverty of the poor.

 

From him he has not hidden his face,

but he heard the poor man when he cried.”

 

You are my praise in the great assembly.

My vows I will pay before those who fear him.

 

The poor shall eat and shall have their fill

They shall praise the Lord, those who seek him.

May their hearts live for ever and ever!

 

All the earth shall remember and return to the Lord.  

all families of the nations worship before him,

for the kingdom is the Lord’s, he is ruler of the nations.

 

They shall worship him, all the mighty of the earth,

before him shall bow all who go down to the dust.

 

And my soul shall live for him, my children serve him.

They shall tell of the Lord to generations yet to come,

 

declare his faithfulness to peoples yet unborn:

These things the Lord has done.”

 

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. 

 

 

 

 

Responsorial Psalm 92

 

 

The Lord is king, with majesty enrobed;  

the Lord has robed himself with might,

he has girded himself with power.

 

In you, O God,  

our fathers trusted

and never in vain.

 

The world you made firm, not to be moved;  

your throne has stood firm from of old.

From all eternity, O Lord, you are.

 

The waters have lifted up, O Lord,  

the waters have lifted up their voice,

the waters have lifted up their thunder.

 

Greater than the roar of mighty waters,  

more glorious than the surgings of the sea,

the Lord is glorious on high.

 

Truly your decrees are to be trusted.  

Holiness is fitting to your house,

O Lord, until the end of time.

 

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. 

 

 

 

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.

Concluding Prayer

(varies)

 

Almighty and ever-living God,

your Spirit made us your children,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

 

Amen
