Almighty God, whose Son revealed in signs and miracles the wonder of your saving presence: renew your people with your heavenly grace, and in all our weakness sustain us by your mighty power; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom then shall I fear? ♦ The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even my enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my ﬂesh, ♦ they stumbled and fell.
3 Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not be afraid, ♦ and though there rise up war against me, yet will I put my trust in him.
4 One thing have I asked of the Lord and that alone I seek: ♦ that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
5 To behold the fair beauty of the Lord ♦ and to seek his will in his temple.
6 For in the day of trouble he shall hide me in his shelter; ♦ in the secret place of his dwelling shall he hide me and set me high upon a rock.
7 And now shall he lift up my head ♦ above my enemies round about me;
8 Therefore will I offer in his dwelling an oblation with great gladness; ♦ I will sing and make music to the Lord.
9 Hear my voice, O Lord, when I call; ♦ have mercy upon me and answer me.
10 My heart tells of your word, ‘Seek my face.’ ♦ Your face, Lord, will I seek.
11 Hide not your face from me, ♦ nor cast your servant away in displeasure.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit : as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.
