R:O Lord, make haste to help us.

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

Psalm 119: Nun Lucerna pedibus meis

BCP p. 772

105

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

106

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

107

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

108

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

109

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

110

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

111

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

112

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

Psalm 121 Levavi oculum

BCP p. 779

1

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

2

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

3

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

4

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

5

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

6

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

7

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

8

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

1

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

2

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

3

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

4

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

5

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

6

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

7

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.

If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.2 Corinthians 5:17-18
