Introit                                                                                                 Ps. 178:1-3, 4b; antiphon: Ps. 35:3b; 34:17a, 6b; 48:14a


Say to my soul, “I am your sal- | vation!”*
  When the righteous cry for help, the | LORD hears.
[The Lord] saved him out of all his | troubles;*
  this is God, our God forever and | ever.
Give ear, O my people, to my | teaching;*
  incline your ears to the words | of my mouth!
I will open my mouth in a | parable;*
  I will utter dark sayings | from of old,
things that we have | heard and known,*
  that our fathers have | told us.
We will tell the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, | and his might,*
  and the wonders that | he has done.
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.

Say to my soul, “I am your sal- | vation!”*
  When the righteous cry for help, the | LORD hears.
[The Lord] saved him out of all his | troubles;*
  this is God, our God forever and | ever.


Collect of the Day


 Almighty and merciful God, of Your bountiful goodness keep from us all things that may hurt us that we, being ready in both body and soul, may cheerfully accomplish whatever You would have us do; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
