Lord, open our lips.
And we shall praise your name.
|Invitatory Psalm||Psalm 99 (100)|
– Christ is the chief shepherd, the leader of his flock: come, let us adore him.
Rejoice in the Lord, all the earth,
and serve him with joy.
Exult as you enter his presence.
Know that the Lord is God.
He made us and we are his
– his people, the sheep of his flock.
Cry out his praises as you enter his gates,
fill his courtyards with songs.
Proclaim him and bless his name;
for the Lord is our delight.
His mercy lasts for ever,
his faithfulness through all the ages.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be,
world without end.
– Christ is the chief shepherd, the leader of his flock: come, let us adore him.*
