(Week 26 of the year: Monday)
R. Turn your ear to me; hear my words.
1. Lord, hear a cause that is just,
pay heed to my cry.
Turn your ear to my prayer:
no deceit is on my lips. (R.)
2. From you may my judgement come forth.
Your eyes discern the truth.
You search my heart, you visit me by night.
You test me and you find in me no wrong. (R.)
3. I am here and I call, you will hear me, O God.
Turn your ear to me; hear my words.
Display your great love, you whose right hand saves
your friends from those who rebel against them. (R.)
If anyone loves me he will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we shall come to him.
