HYMN

Now thank we all our God, with heart and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done, in Whom this world rejoices;
Who from our mothers’ arms has blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.

O may this bounteous God through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts and blessèd peace to cheer us;
And keep us in His grace, and guide us when perplexed;
And free us from all ills, in this world and the next!

All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given;
The Son and Him Who reigns with Them in highest Heaven;
The one eternal God, whom earth and Heaven adore;
For thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.
Text: Martin Rinkart, circa 1636; Music: Nun Danket, attributed to Johann Crüger, 1647; Midi: Cyberhymnal


PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: From the rising of the sun to its setting, may the name of the Lord be praised.

Psalm 113
Praise the name of the Lord
He has cast down the mighty and has lifted up the lowly (Luke 1:52).

Praise, O servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord!
May the name of the Lord be blessed
both now and for evermore!
From the rising of the sun to its setting
praised be the name of the Lord!

High above all nations is the Lord,
above the heavens his glory.
Who is like the Lord, our God,
who has risen on high to his throne
yet stoops from the heights to look down,
to look down upon heaven and earth?

From the dust he lifts up the lowly,
from the dungheap he raises the poor
to set them in the company of princes,
yes, with the princes of his people.
To the childless wife he gives a home
and gladdens her heart with children. Glory...



Psalm Prayer: Lord Jesus, Word of God, surrendering the brightness of your glory you became man so that we may be raised from the dust to share your very being. May there be innumerable children of the Church to offer homage to your name from the rising of the sun to its setting.

Antiphon 1 From the rising of the sun to its setting, may the name of the Lord be praised.


Antiphon 2 I shall take into my hand the saving chalice and invoke the name of the Lord.

Psalm 116:10-19
Thanksgiving in the temple

Through Christ let us offer to God a continual sacrifice of praise (Hebrews 13:15)

I trusted, even when I said:
I am sorely afflicted,
and when I said in my alarm:
No man can be trusted.

How can I repay the Lord
for his goodness to me?
The cup of salvation I will raise;
I will call on the Lord's name.

My vows to the Lord I will fulfill
before all his people.
O precious in the eyes of the Lord
is the death of his faithful.

Your servant, Lord, your servant am I;
you have loosened my bonds.
A thanksgiving sacrifice I make;
I will call on the Lord's name.

My vows to the Lord I will fulfill
before all his people,
in the courts of the house of the Lord,
in your midst, O Jerusalem. Glory...


Psalm Prayer: Father, precious in your sight is the death of the saints, but precious above all is the love with which Christ suffered to redeem us. In this life we will fill up in our own flesh what it is still lacking in the sufferings of Christ; accept this as our sacrifice of praise, and we shall even now taste the joy of the new Jerusalem.

Antiphon 2 I shall take into my hand the saving chalice and invoke the name of the Lord.


Antiphon 3 The Lord Jesus humbled himself, and God exalted him forever.

Canticle  -  Philippians 2:6-11
Christ, God's holy servant

Though he was in the form of God,
Jesus did not deem equality with God
something to be grasped at.

Rather, he emptied himself
and took the form of a slave,
being born in the likeness of men.

He was known to be of human estate
and it was thus that he humbled himself,
obediently accepting even death,
death on a cross!

Because of this,
God highly exalted him
and bestowed on him the name
above every other name,  

So that at Jesus' name
every knee must bend
in the heavens, on the earth,
and under the earth,
and every tongue proclaim
to the glory of God the Father:  
JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!   Glory...


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.

Antiphon 3 The Lord Jesus humbled himself, and God exalted him forever.


READING     Hebrews 13:20-21
May the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great shepherd of the sheep by the blood of the eternal covenant, Jesus our Lord, furnish you with all that is good, that you may do his will. May he carry out in you what is pleasing to him through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever.


RESPONSORY
Our hearts are filled with wonder as we contemplate your works, O Lord.
 -- Our hearts are filled with wonder as we contemplate your works, O Lord.
We praise the wisdom which wrought them all,
 - as we contemplate your works, O Lord.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - - Our hearts are filled with wonder as we contemplate your works, O Lord.


MAGNIFICAT (Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon: Lord, bid me walk across the waters. Jesus reached out to take hold of Peter and said: O, you of little faith, why did you falter?


INTERCESSIONS
Christ had compassion on the hungry and performed a miracle of love for them. Mindful of this, let us pray:

           Show us your love, Lord.

Lord, we recognize that all the favors we have received today come through your generosity,
 - do not let them return to you empty, but let them bear fruit.

Light and salvation of all nations, protect the missionaries you have sent into the world,
 - enkindle in them the fire of your Spirit.

Grant that we may shape the world in keeping with human dignity,
 - and respond generously to the needs of our time.

Healer of body and spirit, comfort the sick and be present to the dying,
 - in your mercy visit and refresh us.

May the faithful departed be numbered among the saints,
 - whose names are in the Book of Life.


Our Father...


COLLECT
Almighty ever-living God,
whom, taught by the Holy Spirit,
we dare to call our Father,
bring, we pray, to perfection in our hearts
the spirit of adoption as your sons and daughters,
that we may merit to enter into the inheritance
which you have promised.
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.
