Introit                                                                                                                                                Ps. 13:1-4; antiphon: Ps. 13:5-6


[O Lord,] I have trusted in your | steadfast love;*
  my heart shall rejoice in your sal- | vation.
I will sing | to the LORD,*
  because he has dealt bountifully | with me.
How long, O LORD? Will you forget me for- | ever?*
  How long will you hide your | face from me?
How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart | all the day?*
  How long shall my enemy be exalted | over me?
Consider and answer me, O | LORD my God;*
  light up my eyes, lest I sleep the | sleep of death,
lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed | over him,”*
  lest my foes rejoice because I am | shaken.
Glory be to the Father and | to the Son*
  and to the Holy | Spirit;
as it was in the be- | ginning,*
  is now, and will be forever. | Amen.

[O Lord,] I have trusted in your | steadfast love;*
  my heart shall rejoice in your sal- | vation.
I will sing | to the LORD,*
  because he has dealt bountifully | with me.


Collect of the Day


  O God, the strength of all who trust in You, mercifully accept our prayers; and because through the weakness of our mortal nature we can do no good thing, grant us Your grace to keep Your commandments that we may please You in both will and deed; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
