Speak Lord: Fruit to refresh us

The Lord is compassion and love.

My soul, give thanks to the Lord
all my being, bless his holy name.
My soul, give thanks to the Lord
and never forget all his blessings.

The Lord is compassion and love.

It is he who forgives all your guilt,
who heals every one of your ills,
who redeems your life from the grave,
who crowns you with love and compassion,

The Lord is compassion and love.

The Lord does deeds of justice,
gives judgement for all who are oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses
and his deeds to Israel’s sons.

The Lord is compassion and love.

The Lord is compassion and love,
slow to anger and rich in mercy.
For as the heavens are high above the earth
so strong is his love for those who fear him.

The Lord is compassion and love.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 102(103):1-4,6-8,11

There is every reason for us to give thanks. Not least for God’s patient love.

We may fail and slip and slide and mess up in so many ways. But never, ever, does his love for us waver…

The fruit of his love is always there for us to take for our health, healing and well-being.
