  The Baptism of Our Lord

  

Introit                                                                                                          Ps. 89:1, 26-28; antiphon: Liturgical Text, Ps. 89:20


Behold the Lord, the rul- | er, has come,*
  and the kingdom and the power and the glory are | in his hand.
I have found David, my | servant;*
  with my holy oil I have a- | nointed him.
I will sing of the steadfast love of the LORD, for- | ever;*
  with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all gener- | ations.
He shall cry to me, “You are my | Father,*
  my God, and the Rock of my sal- | vation.”
And I will make him the | firstborn,*
  the highest of the kings | of the earth.
My steadfast love I will keep for him for- | ever,*
  and my covenant will stand | firm for him.
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.

Behold the Lord, the rul- | er, has come,*
  and the kingdom and the power and the glory are | in his hand.
I have found David, my | servant;*
  with my holy oil I have a- | nointed him.


Collect of the Day


  Father in heaven, at the Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River You proclaimed Him Your beloved Son and anointed Him with the Holy Spirit. Make all who are baptized in His name faithful in their calling as Your children and inheritors with Him of everlasting life; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
