Prelude and Opening Hymn

“Italian Hymn” by Healey Willan

LSB 905 - "Come Thou Almighty King"


Versicles

O Lord, open my lips,
    And my mouth will declare your praise.
Make haste, O God, to deliver me;
    Make haste to help me, O Lord.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son
    and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning,
    is now, and will be forever. Amen.
Praise to You, O Christ. Alleluia.

Psalmody

Blessed be God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
    O come, let us worship Him.

Venite

Venite ‎‎‎(Psalm 95)‎‎‎


Blessed be God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
    O come, let us worship Him.

Psalm 13:3-5 (Antiphon: Psalm 13:6)
I will sing to the Lord,
    because he has dealt bountifully with 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.
But I have trusted in your steadfast love
    my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son
    and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning,
    is now and will be forever. Amen.
I will sing to the Lord,
    because he has dealt bountifully with me.
