Morning Prayer
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.
Amen. (Alleluia.)


HYMN

With hearts renewed by living faith,
We lift our thoughts in grateful prayer
To God our gracious father,
Whose plan it was to make us sons
Through his own Son’s redemptive death,
That rescued us from darkness.
Lord, God, Savior,
Give us strength to mold our hearts in your true likeness.
Sons and servants of our Father.

So rich God’s grace in Jesus Christ,
That we are called as sons of light
To bear the pledge of glory.
Through him in whom all fullness dwells,
We offer God our gift of self
In union with the Spirit.
Lord, God, Savior,
Give us strength to mold our hearts in your true likeness.
Sons and servants of our Father.

PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: The man whose deeds are blameless and whose heart is pure will climb the mountain of the Lord.


If Psalm 24 was used for the Invitatory, substitute Psalm 95

The Lord's is the earth and its fullness,
the world and all its peoples.
It is he who set it on the seas;
on the waters he made it firm.

Who shall climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who shall stand in his holy place?
The man with clean hands and pure heart,
who desires not worthless things,
who has not sworn so as to deceive his neighbor.

He shall receive blessings from the Lord
and reward from the God who saves him.
Such are the men who seek him,
seek the face of the God of Jacob.

O gates, lift high your heads;
grow higher, ancient doors.
Let him enter, the king of glory!

Who is the king of glory?
The Lord, the mighty, the valiant,
the Lord, the valiant in war.

O gates, lift high your heads;
grow higher, ancient doors.
Let him enter, the king of glory!

Who is he, the king of glory?
He, the Lord of armies,
he is the king of glory. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: King of glory, Lord of power and might, cleanse our hearts from all sin, preserve the innocence of our hands, and keep our minds from vanity, so that we may deserve your blessing in your holy place.

Antiphon 1 The man whose deeds are blameless and whose heart is pure will climb the mountain of the Lord.


Antiphon 2 Praise the eternal king in all your deeds.


Blessed be God who lives forever,
because his kingdom lasts for all ages.

For he scourges and then has mercy;
he casts down to the depths of the nether world,
and he brings up from the great abyss.
No one can escape his hand.

Praise him, you Israelites, before the Gentiles,
for though he has scattered you among them,
he has shown you his greatness even there.

Exalt him before every living being,
because he is the Lord our God,
our Father and God forever.

He scourged you for your iniquities,
but will again have mercy on you all.
He will gather you from all the Gentiles
among whom you have been scattered.

When you turn back to him with all your heart,
to do what is right before him,
Then he will turn back to you,
and no longer hide his face from you.

So now consider what he has done for you,
and praise him with full voice.
Bless the Lord of righteousness,
and exalt the King of the ages.

In the land of my exile I praise him,
and show his power and majesty to a sinful nation.
"Turn back, you sinners! do the right before him:
perhaps he may look with favor upon you
and show you mercy.

"As for me, I exalt my God,
and my spirit rejoices in the King of heaven.
Let all people speak of his majesty,
and sing his praises in Jerusalem." Glory...

Antiphon 2 Praise the eternal king in all your deeds.


Antiphon 3 The loyal heart must praise the Lord.

Ring out your joy to the Lord, O you just;
for praise is fitting for loyal hearts.

Give thanks to the Lord upon the harp,
with a ten-stringed lute sing him songs.
O sing him a song that is new,
play loudly, with all your skill.

For the word of the Lord is faithful
and all his works to be trusted.
The Lord loves justice and right
and fills the earth with his love.

By his word the heavens were made,
by the breath of his mouth all the stars.
He collects the waves of the ocean;
he stores up the depths of the sea.

Let all the earth fear the Lord
all who live in the world revere him.
He spoke; and it came to be.
He commanded; it sprang into being.

He frustrates the designs of the nations,
he defeats the plans of the peoples.
His own designs shall stand for ever,
the plans of his heart from age to age.

They are happy, whose God is the Lord,
the people he has chosen as his own.
From the heavens the Lord looks forth,
he sees all the children of men.

From the place where he dwells he gazes
on all the dwellers on the earth;
he who shapes the hearts of them all;
and considers all their deeds.

A king is not saved by his army,
nor a warrior preserved by his strength.
A vain hope for safety is the horse;
despite its power it cannot save.

The Lord looks on those who revere him,
on those who hope in his love,
to rescue their souls from death,
to keep them alive in famine.

Our soul is waiting for the Lord.
The Lord is our help and our shield.
In him do our hearts find joy.
We trust in his holy name.

May your love be upon us, O Lord,
as we place all our hope in you. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Nourish your people, Lord, for we hunger for your word. Rescue us from the death of sin and fill us with your mercy, that we may share your presence and the joy of all the saints. .

Antiphon 3 The loyal heart must praise the Lord.


READING     Romans 13:11b-14
You know the time in which we are living; it is now the hour for you to wake from sleep. For our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed; the night is far spent, the day is at hand. Let us then cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us live honorably as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in promiscuity and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the desires of the flesh.


RESPONSORY
My God stands by me, all my trust is in him.
 -- My God stands by me, all my trust is in him.
I find refuge in him, and I am truly free.
 - all my trust is in him.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - My God stands by me, all my trust is in him.


BENEDICTUS (Canticle of Zechariah)
Antiphon: God has raised up for us a mighty Savior, as he promised through the words of his holy prophets.

INTERCESSIONS
Beloved brothers and sisters, we share a heavenly calling under Christ, our high
priest. Let us praise him with shouts of joy:

                         Lord, our God and our Savior.

Almighty King, through baptism you conferred on us a royal priesthood,
 - inspire us to offer you a continual sacrifice of praise.

Help us to keep your commandments,
 - that through the power of the Holy Spirit we may live in you and you in us.

Give us your eternal wisdom,
 - to be with us today and to guide us.

May our companions today be free of sorrow,
 - and filled with joy.


Our Father...


PRAYER
God our Father, hear our morning prayer
and let the radiance of your love
scatter the gloom of our hearts.
The light of heaven's love has restored us to life;
free us from the desires that belong to darkness.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and 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.
