WEEK 7 - TUESDAY
Psalter, Tuesday Week III
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.
We praise your name with joy this night.
Please watch and guide us till the light;
Joining the music of the blest,
Oh lord, we sing ourselves to rest
To God the Father, God the Son,
And Holy Spirit, Three in One,
Trinity blest, whom we adore,
Be praise and glory evermore.
Text: Jam sol recedit igneus; Melody: Angelus; Midi: Cyberhymnal
The Lord surrounds his people with his strength.
The Lord, guardian of his people
Peace to God's true Israel (Galatians 6:16)
Those who put their trust in the Lord
are like Mount Zion, that cannot be shaken,
that stands for ever.
Jerusalem! The mountains surround her,
so the Lord surrounds his people
both now and for ever.
For the scepter of the wicked shall not rest
over the land of the just
for fear that the hands of the just
should turn to evil.
Do good, Lord, to those who are good,
to the upright of heart;
but the crooked and those who do evil,
drive them away!
On Israel, peace! Glory...
Psalm Prayer: Surround your people, Lord, within the safety of your Church, which you preserve on its rock foundation. Do not let us stretch out our hands to evil deeds, nor be destroyed by the insidious snares of the enemy, but bring us to share the lot of the saints in light.
Antiphon 1 The Lord surrounds his people with his strength.
Antiphon 2 Unless you acquire the heart of a child, you cannot enter the kingdom of God.
Truly I have set my soul
in silence and peace.
A weaned child on its mother's breast,
even so is my soul.
O Israel, hope in the Lord
both now and forever. Glory...
O Lord our God, you are worthy
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you have created all things;
by your will they came to be and were made.
Worthy are you, O Lord
to receive the scroll and 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 praise. Glory...
Lord, you have made us a kingdom and priests for God our Father.
You are the hope of your people, Lord.
We thank you, Lord,
- because in Christ you have given us all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
O God, in your hands are the hearts of the powerful; bestow your wisdom upon government leaders,
- may they draw from the fountain of your counsel and please you in thought and deed.
The talents of artists reflect your splendor,
- may their work give the world hope and joy.
You do not allow us to be tested beyond our ability,
- strengthen the weak and raise up the fallen.
Through your Son you promised to raise men up on the Last Day,
- do not forget those who have died.
may our evening prayer rise up to you.
and your blessing come down upon us.
May your help and salvation be ours
now and through all eternity.
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.
