PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: I lift up my heart to you, O Lord, and you will hear my morning prayer.


Psalm 5:2-10,12-13
A morning prayer asking for help
Those who welcome the word as the guest of their hearts will have abiding joy.

To my words give ear, O Lord,
give heed to my groaning.
Attend to the sound of my cries,
my King and my God.

It is you whom I invoke, O Lord.
In the morning you hear me;
in the morning I offer you my prayer,
watching and waiting.

You are no God who loves evil;
no sinner is your guest.
The boastful shall not stand their ground
before your face.

You hate all who do evil;
you destroy all who lie.
The deceitful and bloodthirsty man
the Lord detests.

But I through the greatness of your love
have access to your house.
I bow down before your holy temple,
filled with awe.

Lead me, Lord, in your justice,
because of those who lie in wait;
make clear your way before me.

No truth can be found in their mouths,
their heart is all mischief,
their throat a wide-open grave,
all honey their speech.

All those you protect shall be glad
and ring out their joy.
You shelter them; in you they rejoice,
those who love your name.

It is you who bless the just man
you surround him with favor as with a shield. Glory...


Psalm Prayer: Lord, all justice and all goodness come from you; you hate evil and abhor lies. Lead us, your servants, in the path of your justice, so that all who hope in you may rejoice with the Church and in Christ.

Antiphon 1 I lift up my heart to you, O Lord, and you will hear my morning prayer.


Antiphon 2 We praise your glorious name, O Lord our God.


Canticle  -  1 Chronicles 29:10b-13
Glory and honor are due to God alone
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:3)


Blessed may you be, O Lord,
God of Israel our father,
from eternity to eternity.

Yours, O Lord, are grandeur and power,
majesty, splendor, and glory.

For all in heaven and on earth is yours;
yours, O Lord, is the sovereignty;
you are exalted as head over all.

Riches and honor are from you,
and you have dominion over all.
In your hand are power and might;
it is yours to give grandeur and strength to all.

Therefore, our God, we give you thanks
and we praise the majesty of your name.  Glory...

Antiphon 2 We praise your glorious name, O Lord our God.


Antiphon 3 Adore the Lord in his holy court.


Psalm 29
A tribute of praise to the Word of God

The Father's voice proclaimed: "This is my beloved Son" (Matthew 3:17)

O give the Lord, you sons of God,
give the Lord glory and power;
give the Lord the glory of his name.
Adore the Lord in his holy court.

The Lord's voice resounding on the waters,
the Lord on the immensity of waters;
the voice of the Lord, full of power,
the voice of the Lord, full of splendor.

The Lord's voice shattering the cedars,
the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon;
he makes Lebanon leap like a calf
and Sirion like a young wild ox.

The Lord's voice flashes flames of fire.

The Lord's voice shaking the wilderness,
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh;
the Lord's voice rending the oak tree
and stripping the forest bare.

The God of glory thunders.
In his temple they all cry: Glory!
The Lord sat enthroned over the flood;
the Lord sits as king for ever.

The Lord will give strength to his people,
the Lord will bless his people with peace. Glory...

Psalm Prayer:You live for ever, Lord and King. All things of the earth justly sing your glory and honor. Strengthen your people against evil that we may rejoice in your peace and trust in your eternal promise.

Antiphon 3 Adore the Lord in his holy court.


READING     Jeremiah 12:19-20
Yet I, like a trusting lamb led to slaughter,
  had not realized that they were hatching plots against me:
"Let us destroy the tree in its vigor;
  let us cut him off from the land of the living,
  so that his name will be spoken no more."
But, you, O Lord of hosts, O just Judge,
  searcher of mind and heart,
Let me witness the vengeance you take on them,
  for to you I have entrusted my cause!


RESPONSORY
God himself will set me free, from the hunter's snare.
- God himself will set me free, from the hunter's snare.
From those who would trap me with lying words
- and from the hunter's snare.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
- God himself will set me free, from the hunter's snare.


BENEDICTUS (Canticle of Zechariah)
Antiphon: Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.


INTERCESSIONS
Praise to Jesus, our Savior; by his death he has opened for us the way of salvation. Let us ask him:

               Lord, guide your people to walk in your ways.

God of mercy, you gave us new life through baptism,
 - make us grow day by day in your likeness.

May our generosity today bring joy to those in need,
 - in helping them may we find you.

Help us to do what is good, right and true in your sight,
 - and to seek you always with undivided hearts.

Forgive our sins against the unity of your family,
 - make us one in heart and spirit.


Our Father...


COLLECT
By your help, we beseech you, Lord our God,
may we walk eagerly in that same charity
with which, out of love for the world,
your Son handed himself over to death.
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.
