From the Lectionary for Mass, no. 1019
R/. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
is my shepherd; I shall not want.
in verdant pastures he gives me repose;
Beside restful waters he leads me;
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me in right paths
for his name sake. R/.
Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side
With your rod and your staff
that give me courage. R/.
You spread the table before me
in the sight of my foes;
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows. R/.
goodness and kindness follow me
all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
for years to come. R/.
R/. To you, O Lord, I lift my soul.
Your ways, O LORD, make known to me;
teach me your paths,
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my savior. R/.
Remember that your compassion, O LORD,
and your kindness are from of old.
In your kindness remember me,
because of your goodness, O LORD. R/.
Preserve my life and rescue me;
let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,
Because I wait for you, O LORD. R/.
R/. My soul is thirsting for the living God: when shall I see him face to face?
As the hind
longs for the running waters,
so my soul longs for you, O God. R/.
my soul for God, the living God.
When shall I go and behold the face of God? R/.
I went with
and led them in procession to the house of God.
Amid loud cries of joy and thanksgiving,
with the multitude keeping festival. R/.
your light and your fidelity;
they shall lead me on
And bring me to your holy mountain,
to your dwelling-place. R/.
Then will I
go in to the altar of God,
the God of my gladness and joy;
Then will I give you thanks upon the harp,
O God, my God! R/.
Why are you
downcast, O my soul?
Why do you sigh within me?
Hope in God! For I shall again be thanking him,
in the presence of my savior and my God. R/.
R/. Let all praise the name of the Lord.
Praise the Lord from the heavens,
praise him in the heights;
Praise him, all you his angels,
praise him, all you his hosts. R/.
kings of the earth and all peoples,
the princes and all the judges of the earth,
Young men too, and maidens,
old men and boys,
Praise the name of the Lord,
for his name alone is exalted. R/.
is above earth and heaven,
and he has lifted up the horn of his people.
Be this his praise from all his faithful ones,
from the children of Israel, the people close to him. Alleluia. R/.
