ST. MARTIN OF TOURS
The Invitatory opens the first Office of the day. If the Office of Readings is the first Office of the day, begin below.
Lord, open my lips.
- And my mouth shall proclaim your praise.
Psalm 95 is the traditional Invitatory Psalm. Psalm 24, 67, or 100 may be substituted.
Come, let us worship our God, as we celebrate the feast of St. Martin.
Psalter, Sunday 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.
I would bless thee every day,
Gladly all thy will obey,
Like thy blessèd ones above
Happy in thy precious love.
Loving Shepherd, ever near,
Teach thy lamb thy voice to hear,
Suffer not my steps to stray
From the straight and narrow way.
Where thou leadest I would go,
Walking in thy steps below,
Till before my Father’s throne
I shall know as I am known.
