Speak Lord: Our protector and guide

Remember your mercy, Lord.

Lord, make me know your ways.
Lord, teach me your paths.
Make me walk in your truth, and teach me:
for you are God my saviour.

Remember your mercy, Lord.

In you I hope all day long
because of your goodness, O Lord.
Remember your mercy, Lord,
and the love you have shown from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth.
In your love remember me.

Remember your mercy, Lord.

The Lord is good and upright.
He shows the path to those who stray,
He guides the humble in the right path,
He teaches his way to the poor.

Remember your mercy, Lord.

Responsorial Psalm for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Psalm 24:4-9

‘Remember your mercy, Lord.’? As it God would ever forget!

It is we who neglect the mercy of God, not he who deprives us of it.

As we raise our awareness and deepen our trust in God’s abiding mercy, we are able also to strive ourselves to receive and draw on its benefits.
