WEEK V - TUESDAY
Psalter, Tuesday, Week I
God, come to my assistance.
- Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
- as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever.
Lord Who Throughout These Forty Days
This Is Our Accepted Time
When I Survey The Wondrous Cross
Audi, Benigne Conditor
Antiphon 1: God has crowned his Christ with victory.
May the Lord answer in time of trial;
may the name of Jacob's God protect you.
May he send you help from his shrine
and give you support from Zion.
May he remember all your offerings
and receive your sacrifice with favor.
May he give you your heart's desire
and fulfill every one of your plans.
May we ring out our joy at your victory
and rejoice in the name of our God.
(May the Lord grant all your prayers.)
I am sure now that the Lord
will give victory to his anointed,
will reply from his holy heaven
with the mighty victory of his hand.
Some trust in chariots or horses,
but we in the name of the Lord.
They will collapse and fall,
but we shall hold and stand firm.
Give victory to the king, O Lord,
give answer on the day we call. Glory...
God has crowned his Christ with victory.
Antiphon 2 We celebrate your mighty works with songs of praise, O God.
O Lord, your strength gives joy to the King;
how your saving help makes him glad!
You have granted him his heart's desire;
you have not refused the prayer of his lips.
You came to meet him with the blessings of success,
you have set on his head a crown of pure gold.
He asked you for life and this you have given,
days that will last from age to age.
Your saving help has given him glory.
You have laid upon him majesty and splendor,
you have granted your blessings to him forever.
You have made him rejoice with the joy of your presence.
The king has put his trust in the Lord:
through the mercy of the Most High he shall stand firm.
O Lord, arise in your strength;
we shall sing and praise your power. Glory...
We celebrate your mighty works with songs of praise, O God.
Antiphon 3 Lord, you have made us a kingdom and priests for God our Father.
Worthy are you, Lord our God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
For you created all things;
by your will they came to be and were created.
Worthy are you, O Lord,
to receive the scroll and to break open its seals.
For you were slain;
with your blood you purchased for God
those from every tribe and tongue,
of every people and nation.
You made them a kingdom
and priests to serve our God,
and they shall reign on earth.
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
to receive power and riches,
wisdom and strength,
honor and glory and blessing. Glory...
Lord, you have made us a kingdom and priests for God our Father.
Turn to us, Lord, and have mercy.
Jesus, our Christ, you promised to be with those who pray in your name,
- help us always to pray with you to the Father in the Holy Spirit.
Bridegroom of the Church, cleanse her from every stain,
- teach her to walk in hope and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Friend of the human race, teach us concern for our neighbor as you have commanded,
- that all may see you more clearly as the light of the world.
King of peace, give your peace to the world,
- that your presence may reveal your saving power in every place.
Open the door of eternal happiness to all the dead,
- welcome them into the glory of unending life.
Grant us, we pray, O Lord,
perseverance in obeying your will,
that in our days the people dedicated to your service
may grow in both merit and number.
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.
