Hymn

(varies)

 

 

 

 

Psalm 9

 

 

I will praise you, Lord, with all by heart;

I will recount all your wonders.

 

I will rejoice in you and be glad,

and sing psalms to your name, O Most High.

 

See how my enemies turn back,

how they stumble and perish before you.

 

You upheld the justice of my cause;

you sat enthroned, judging with justice.

 

You have checked the nations, destroyed the wicked;

you have wiped out their name for ever and ever.

 

The foe is destroyed, eternally ruined.

You uprooted their cities; their memory has perished.

 

But the Lord sits enthroned for ever.

He has set up his throne for judgment;

 

he will judge the world with justice,

he will judge the peoples with his truth.

 

For the oppressed let the Lord be a stronghold,

a stronghold in times of distress.

 

Those who know your name will trust you;

you will never forsake those who seek you.

 

Sing psalms to the Lord who dwells in Zion.

Proclaim his mighty works among the peoples,

 

for the Avenger of blood has remembered them,

has not forgotten the cry of the poor.

 

Have pity on me, Lord, see my sufferings,

you who save me from the gates of death;

 

that I may recount all your praise 

at the gates of the city of Zion

and rejoice in your saving help.

 

The nations have fallen in the pit which they made,

their feet caught in the snare they laid.

 

The Lord has revealed himself, and given judgment.

The wicked are snared in the work of their own hands.

 

Let the wicked go down among the dead,

all the nations forgetful of God;

 

for the needy shall not always be forgotten

nor the hopes of the poor be in vain.

 

Arise, Lord, let men not prevail!

Let the nations be judged before you.

 

Lord, strike them with terror,

let the nations know they are but men.

 

Lord, why do you stand afar off

and hide yourself in times of distress?

 

The poor man is devoured by the pride of the wicked;

he is caught in the schemes that others have made.

 

For the wicked man boasts of his heart’s desires;

the covetous blasphemes and spurns the Lord.

 

In his pride the wicked says: “He will not punish.

there is no God.”  Such are his thoughts.

 

His path is ever untroubled;

your judgment is far from his mind.

His enemies he regards with contempt.

 

He thinks: “Never shall I falter:

misfortune shall never be my lot

 

His mouth is full of cursing, guile, oppression,

mischief and deceit under his tongue.

 

He lies in wait among the reeds;

the innocent he murders in secret.

 

His eyes are on the watch for the helpless man.

He lurks in hiding like a lion in his lair;

 

he lurks in hiding to seize the poor;

he seizes the poor man and drags him away.

 

He crouches, preparing to spring,

and the helpless fall beneath his strength.

 

He thinks in his heart: “God forgets,

he hides his face, he does not see

 

Arise then, Lord, lift up your hand!

O God, do not forget the poor!

 

Why should the wicked spurn the Lord

and think in his heart: “He will not punish”?

 

But you have seen the trouble and sorrow,

you note it, you take it in hand.

 

The helpless trusts himself to you,

for you are the helper of the orphan.

 

Break the power of the wicked and the sinner!

Punish his wickedness till nothing remains!

 

The Lord is king for ever and ever.

The heathen shall perish from the land he rules.

 

Lord, you hear the prayer of the poor;

you strengthen their hearts; you turn your ear

 

to protect the rights of the orphan and oppressed:

so that mortal man may strike terror no more.

  

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 98

 

 

The Lord is king; the peoples tremble.

His is throned on the cherubim; the earth quakes.

The Lord is great in Zion.

 

The Lord is king; the Lord is great in Zion!

 

He is supreme over all the peoples.

Let them praise his name, so terrible and great.

he is holy, full of power.

 

The Lord is king; the Lord is great in Zion!

 

You are a king who loves what is right;

you have established equity, justice and right.

you have established them in Jacob.

 

The Lord is king; the Lord is great in Zion!

 

Exalt the Lord our God;

bow down before Zion, his footstool.

He the Lord is holy.

 

The Lord is king; the Lord is great in Zion!

 

Among his priests were Aaron and Moses,

among those who invoked his name was Samuel.

They invoked the Lord and he answered.

 

The Lord is king; the Lord is great in Zion!

 

To them he spoke in the pillar of cloud.

They did his will; they kept the law,

which he, the Lord, had given.

 

The Lord is king; the Lord is great in Zion!

 

O Lord our God, you answered them.

For them you were a God who forgives;

yet you punished all their offences.

 

The Lord is king; the Lord is great in Zion!

 

Exalt the Lord our God;

bow down before his holy mountain

for the Lord our God is holy.

 

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.
