Psalm 110:1-5,7
The Messiah, king and priest
Christ's reign will last until all his enemies are made subject to him (1 Corinthians 15:25)

The Lord's revelation to my Master:
"Sit on my right:
your foes I will put beneath your feet."
The Lord will wield from Zion
your scepter of power:
rule in the midst of all your foes.

A prince from the day of your birth
on the holy mountains;
from the womb before the dawn I begot you.

The Lord has sworn an oath he will not change.
"You are a priest for ever,
a priest like Melchizedeck of old."

The Master standing at your right hand
will shatter kings in the day of his wrath.

He shall drink from the stream by the wayside
and therefore he shall lift up his head. Glory...

Psalm 111
God's marvelous works

We are lost in wonder at all you have done for us, our Lord and mighty God (Revelation 15:3)

I will thank the Lord with all my heart
in the meeting of the just and their assembly.
Great are the works of the Lord,
to be pondered by all who love them.

Majestic and glorious his work,
his justice stands firm for ever.
He makes us remember his wonders.
The Lord is compassion and love.

He gives food to those who fear him;
keeps his covenant ever in mind.
He has shown his might to his people
by giving them the lands of the nations.

His works are justice and truth,
his precepts are all of them sure,
standing firm for ever and ever;
they are made in uprightness and truth.

He has sent deliverance to his people
and established his covenant for ever.
Holy his name, to be feared.

To fear the Lord is the first stage of wisdom;
all who do so prove themselves wise.
His praise shall last for ever! Glory...

With joy in our hearts, let us call upon Christ the Lord, who died and rose again, and lives always to intercede for us:
         Victorious King, hear our prayer.

Light and salvation of all peoples,
 - send into our hearts the fire of your Spirit, as we proclaim your resurrection.

Let Israel recognize in you her longed-for Messiah,
 - and the whole earth be filled with the knowledge of your glory.

Keep us in the communion of your saints,
 - and grant us rest from our labors in their company.

You have triumphed over death, your enemy; destroy in us the power of death,
 - that we may live only for you, victorious and immortal Lord.

Savior Christ, you were obedient even to accepting death, and were raised up to the right hand of the Father,
 - in your goodness welcome your brothers and sisters into the kingdom of your glory.

Our Father...

May your people exult for ever, O God,
in renewed youthfulness of spirit,
so that, rejoicing now in the restored glory of our adoption,
we may look forward in confident hope
to the rejoicing of the day of resurrection.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life. Amen.
