Speak Lord: Shepherd us

Lord, who shall dwell on your holy mountain?
He who walks without fault;
he who acts with justice
and speaks the truth from his heart;
he who does not slander with his tongue.

He who does no wrong to his brother,
who casts no slur on his neighbour,
who holds the godless in disdain,
but honours those who fear the Lord.

He who keeps his pledge, come what may;
who takes no interest on a loan
and accepts no bribes against the innocent.
Such a man will stand firm for ever.

Responsorial Psalm for 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Psalm 14(15):2-5

On his holy mountain the Lord tends to his people. He listens and cares for them.

Let us pray that we will be there among them!
