Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me; O Lord, make haste to help me! You are my help and my deliverer; do not delay, O my God.
With you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. Continue your mercy to those who know you, and your righteousness to the upright in heart.
Sing praise to the Lord, you his saints, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holy name. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Teach me your way, O Lord, and lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord!
I always enjoy the peaceful moments in church before Sunday Liturgy. There is a mix of both tranquility and anticipation.
“‘I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go into the house of the Lord.'” (Psalm 122:1)
Let your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, for we place our hope in you. Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous! For praise befits the upright.
“Arise, O Lord! O God, lift up your hand. Do not forget the humble.” (Psalm 10:12)
“All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you.” (Psalm 22)
“The Mighty One, God the Lord, has spoken and called the earth from the rising of the sun to its going down.” (Psalm 50)
