Taste and See: dawn

Oxford dawn

The Responsorial Psalm for Sunday, the 10th of Ordinary Time, knows different moments in the story of God’s people. Tear and joy, night and dawn, defeat and victory.

Our lives are in process. The constant is God and God’s goodness.

I will praise you, Lord, you have rescued me.

I will praise you, Lord, you have rescued me
and have not let my enemies rejoice over me.
O Lord, you have raised my soul from the dead,
restored me to life from those who sink into the grave.

I will praise you, Lord, you have rescued me.

Sing psalms to the Lord, you who love him,
give thanks to his holy name.
His anger lasts a moment; his favour all through life.
At night there are tears, but joy comes with dawn.

I will praise you, Lord, you have rescued me.

The Lord listened and had pity.
The Lord came to my help.
For me you have changed my mourning into dancing:
O Lord my God, I will thank you for ever.

I will praise you, Lord, you have rescued me.


Psalm 29:2,4-6,11-13

Alone, we would be lost. But with God we are saved.

And so we give thanks.

Dawn, Oxford. (c) 2014, Allen Morris.
