May God bless us!
May God, our God, bless us!
Then all the ends of/the earth
will give him the honor he de-serves.

May God show us his favor and bless us!
May he smile up-on us!
Then those living on earth will know what you are like;
all na-tions will know how you de-liver your peo-ple.

Let foreign-ers re-joice and cel-e-brate!
For you exe-cute jus-tice a-mong the na-tions,
O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.


Psalm 119_1-24

How blessed are those
whose ac-tions are blame-less,
who o-bey the law of/the Lord.
How blessed are those who ob-serve his rules,

and seek him with all their heart,
who, more-over, do no wrong,
but follow in his foot-steps.
You de-mand that your pre-cepts be careful-ly kept.

If on-ly I were pre-dis-posed
to keep all your stat-utes!
Then I would not be a-shamed,
if I were focused on all your com-mands.

I will give you sin-cere thanks,
when I learn your just regu-la-tion.
I will keep your stat-utes.
Do not com-plete-ly a-ban-don me!

How can a young per-son main-tain a pure life?
By guarding it ac-cord-ing to your in-struc-tions!
With all my heart I seek you.
Do not al-low me to stray from your com-mands!

In my heart I store up your words,
so I might not sin a-gainst you.
You de-serve praise, O Lord!
Teach me all your stat-utes!

With my lips I pro-claim
all the regu-la-tions you have re-vealed.
I re-joice in/the life-style pre-scribed by your rules
as if they were riches of all kinds.

I will medi-tate on your pre-cepts
and fo-cus on your be-hav-ior.
I find de-light in your stat-utes;
I do not for-get your in-struc-tions.

Be kind to your serv-ant!
Then I will live and keep your in-struc-tions.
O-pen my eyes so I can tru-ly see
the marvel-ous things in your law!

I am a resi-dent foreign-er in this land.
Do not hide your com-mands from me!
I desper-ate-ly long to know
your regu-la-tions at all times.

You rep-ri-mand arro-gant peo-ple.
Those who stray from your com-mands are doomed.
Spare me shame and hu-mili-a-tion,
for I ob-serve your rules.

Though rulers plot and slan-der me,
your serv-ant medi-tates on your stat-utes.
Yes, I find de-light in your rules;
Your law gives me guid-ance.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.


Readings



A reading from John 7:53-8:11


[[And each one departed to his own house. But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. Early in the morning he came to the temple courts again. All the people came to him, and he sat down and began to teach them. The experts in the law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught committing adultery. They made her stand in front of them and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of adultery. In the law Moses commanded us to stone to death such women. What then do you say?” (Now they were asking this in an attempt to trap him, so that they could bring charges against him.) Jesus bent down and wrote on the ground with his finger. When they persisted in asking him, he stood up straight and replied, “Whoever among you is guiltless may be the first to throw a stone at her.” Then he bent over again and wrote on the ground.

Now when they heard this, they began to drift away one at a time, starting with the older ones, until Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus stood up straight and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?” She replied, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “I do not condemn you either. Go, and from now on do not sin any more.”]]

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Wednesday - Our Father


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



The Lord be with you.
And al-so with _ you.
Our Fath-er in heav-en,
hal-low-ed be your Name.

Your king-dom come,
your will be done on earth
as it is in heav-en.
Give us to-day our dai-ly bread.

For-give us our sins
as we _ for-give those
who sin a-gainst us.
Save us from/the time of tri-al,

De-liver us from e-vil.
For the king-dom, the pow-er,
and the glory are yours,
now and for-ever A-men.
