Speak Lord: faithful one

Aix 2104 OLadyThe Responsorial Psalm at Mass tomorrow, the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time, celebrates the faithfulness of the Lord.

We may be unfaithful, but he is always faithful.

And when we call, he not only listens, but answers.

On the day I called, you answered me, O Lord.

I thank you, Lord, with all my heart:
you have heard the words of my mouth.
In the presence of the angels I will bless you.
I will adore before your holy temple.

On the day I called, you answered me, O Lord.

I thank you for your faithfulness and love,
which excel all we ever knew of you.
On the day I called, you answered;
you increased the strength of my soul.

On the day I called, you answered me, O Lord.

The Lord is high yet he looks on the lowly
and the haughty he knows from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of affliction
you give me life and frustrate my foes.

On the day I called, you answered me, O Lord.

You stretch out your hand and save me,
your hand will do all things for me.
Your love, O Lord, is eternal,
discard not the work of your hands.

On the day I called, you answered me, O Lord.

Psalm 137:1-3,6-8

  • For what do you thank the Lord?

Our Lady. Aix en Provence. (c) 2014, Allen Morris
