Psalm 63: As Morning Breaks (Joncas)

Response:     As morning breaks, I look to you;
        I look to you, O Lord, to be my strength this day.
        As morning breaks, as morning breaks.

Psalm 103: Bless the Lord, My Soul (Berthier / Taize)

All:     Bless the Lord, My Soul. And Bless God’s Holy Name.
    Bless the Lord, My Soul. Who Leads me Into Life.

CANTICLE OF ZECHARIAH

Praised be the God of Israel, the Lord.
God comes to bring redemption to the people;
And raises up his saving power for us
Within the household of God’s servant, David.

The prophets spoke God’s promise age on age;
Salvation from our foes and all who hate us.
God keeps his pledge of mercy to our people,
Remembering the covenant forever.

The oath by which God promised Abraham
That we might have protection from our foes,
So fearlessly to serve our God in justice,
In holiness before God all our lives.
 

The prophet of the most high God are you,
You go before the Lord, prepare the way.
To give God’s people knowledge of salvation,
Redemption through forgiveness of their sins.
    
Forgiveness by the mercy of our God,
By which God comes to us as rising dawn.
To shine on those in darkness, in death’s shadow
To guide our feet upon the way of peace.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning is now
And will be forever. Amen.
