TODAY’S PSALM (PSALM 138)

(Week 26 of the year: Friday)

R. Lead me, O Lord, in the path of life eternal.

1. O Lord, you search me and you know me,
you know my resting and my rising,
you discern my purpose from afar.
You mark when I walk or lie down,
all my ways lie open to you. (R.)

2. O where can I go from your spirit,
or where can I flee from your face?
If I climb the heavens, you are there.
If I lie in the grave, you are there. (R.)

3. If I take the wings of the dawn
and dwell at the sea’s furthest end,
even there your hand would lead me,
your right hand would hold me fast. (R.)

4. For it was you who created my being,
knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I thank you for the wonder of my being,
for the wonders of all your creation. (R.)

ALLELUIA

Alleluia, alleluia!
The Lord is faithful in all his words
and loving in all his deeds.
Alleluia!

COME, LET US TO THE LORD OUR GOD WITH CONTRITE HEARTS RETURN (HYMN)

Come, let us to the Lord our God
with contrite hearts return;
our God is gracious nor will leave
the desolate to mourn.

His voice commands the tempest forth,
and stills the stormy wave;
his arm is ever strong to smite
but also strong to save.

Long has the night of sorrow reigned,
the dawn shall bring us light.
God shall appear, and we shall rise,
with gladness in his sight.
– John Morison
