Noonday Prayer

Friday after the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

V:O God, make speed to save us.
R:O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.


Psalm 119: Nun Lucerna pedibus meis

BCP p. 772

our word is a lantern to my feet *
and a light upon my path.


I have sworn and am determined *
to keep your righteous judgments.


I am deeply troubled; *
preserve my life, O Lord, according to your word.


Accept, O Lord, the willing tribute of my lips, *
and teach me your judgments.


My life is always in my hand, *
yet I do not forget your law.


The wicked have set a trap for me, *
but I have not strayed from your commandments.


Your decrees are my inheritance for ever; *
truly, they are the joy of my heart.


I have applied my heart to fulfill your statutes *
for ever and to the end.

Psalm 121 Levavi oculum

BCP p. 779

lift up my eyes to the hills; *
from where is my help to come?


My help comes from the Lord, *
the maker of heaven and earth.


He will not let your foot be moved *
and he who watches over you will not fall asleep.


Behold, he who keeps watch over Israel *
shall neither slumber nor sleep;


The Lord himself watches over you; *
the Lord is your shade at your right hand,


So that the sun shall not strike you by day, *
nor the moon by night.


The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; *
it is he who shall keep you safe.


The Lord shall watch over your going out and your coming in, *
from this time forth for evermore.

Psalm 126 In convertendo

BCP p. 782

hen the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, *
then were we like those who dream.


Then was our mouth filled with laughter, *
and our tongue with shouts of joy.


Then they said among the nations, *
“The Lord has done great things for them.”


The Lord has done great things for us, *
and we are glad indeed.


Restore our fortunes, O Lord, *
like the watercourses of the Negev.


Those who sowed with tears *
will reap with songs of joy.


Those who go out weeping, carrying the seed, *
will come again with joy, shouldering their sheaves.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
