God, come to my assistance.

HYMN

Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of heaven, to earth come down,
And impart to us, here dwelling,
Grace and mercy all around.
Jesus, source of all compassion,
Pure, unbounded love you share;
Grant us many choicest blessings,
Keep us in your loving care.

Come, O source of inspiration
Pure and spotless let us be:
Let us see your true salvation,
Perfect in accord with thee.
Praising Father for all glory
With the Spirit and the Son;
Everlasting thanks we give thee,
Undivided, love, in one.

PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: In eternal splendor, before the dawn of light on earth, I have begotten you, alleluia.

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 yield 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 Prayer: Almighty God, bring the kingdom of Christ, your anointed one, to its fullness. May the perfect offering of your Son, eternal priest of the new Jerusalem, be offered in every place to your name, and make all nations a holy people for you.

Antiphon 1 In eternal splendor, before the dawn of light on earth, I have begotten you, alleluia.



Antiphon 2 Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, they will be satisfied.

Psalm 112
The happiness of the just man

Live as children born of the light. Light produces every kind of goodness and justice and truth. (Ephesians 5:8-9).


Happy the man who fears the Lord,
who take delight in all his commands.
His sons shall be powerful on earth;
the children of the upright are blessed.

Riches and wealth are in his house;
his justice stands firm for ever.
He is a light in the darkness for the upright:
he is generous, merciful and just.

The good man takes pity and lends,
he conducts his affairs with honor.
The just man will never waver:
he will be remembered for ever.

He has no fear of evil news;
with a firm heart he trusts in the Lord.
With a steadfast heart he will not fear;
he will see the downfall of his foes.

Open-handed, he gives to the poor;
his justice stands firm for ever.
His head will be raised in glory.

The wicked man sees and is angry,
grinds his teeth and fades away;
the desire of the wicked leads to doom.  Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Lord God, you are the eternal light which illumines the hearts of good people. Help us to love you, to rejoice in your glory, and so to live in this world as to avoid harsh judgment in the next. May we come to see the light of your countenance.


Antiphon 2 Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, they will be satisfied.

READING     Hebrews 12:22-24
You have approached Mount Zion and the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and countless angels in festal gathering, and the assembly of the firstborn enrolled in heaven, and God the judge of all, and the spirits of the just made perfect, and Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and the sprinkled blood that speaks more eloquently than that of Abel.


RESPONSORY
Our Lord is great, mighty is his power.
 - Our Lord is great, mighty is his power.
His wisdom is beyond compare,
 - mighty is his power.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - Our Lord is great, mighty is his power.


MAGNIFICAT (Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon: I have come to cast fire upon the earth. How I long to see the flame leap up.


INTERCESSIONS
Rejoicing in the Lord, from whom all good things come, let us pray:

                 Lord, hear our prayer.

Father and Lord of all, you sent your Son into the world, that your name might be glorified in every place,
 - strengthen the witness of your Church among the nations.

Make us obedient to the teachings of your apostles,
 - and bound to the truth of our faith.

As you love the innocent,
 - render justice to those who are wronged.

Free those in bondage and give sight to the blind,
 - raise up the fallen and protect the stranger.

Fulfill your promise to those who already sleep in your peace,
 - through your Son grant them a blessed resurrection.


Our Father...


COLLECT
O God, who have prepared for those who love you
good things which no eye can see,
fill our hearts, we pray, with the warmth of your love,
so that, loving you in all things and above all things,
we may attain your promises,
which surpass every human desire.
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.
