With God the Father and the Son,

To sanctify and make us one.

Your praise throughout the world proclaim,
And may that love within our hearts
Set fire to others with its flame.

For whom the heart of man was made,
To you be praise in timeless song,
And everlasting homage paid.

The Lord, the salvation of the righteous
Those who seek the Lord lack no blessing.
I shall bless the Lord for ever:
  my mouth will proclaim his praise.
My soul will glory in the Lord:
  let the meek listen and rejoice.
Join me and proclaim the greatness of the Lord:
  together let us exalt his name.
I sought the Lord and he listened to me:
  he rescued me from all my fears.
Look to him and he will shine upon you,
  and you will not be put to shame.
This poor man called, and the Lord answered him
  and saved him from all his many troubles.
The angel of the Lord will build defences
  round those who fear the Lord:
  he will come to their rescue.
Taste and see that the Lord is kind:
  happy the man who hopes in him.
Revere the Lord, his saints:
  for those who fear him are never destitute.
The rich are hungry and in want,
  but for those who seek the Lord

Ps 33:12-23
Inquíre pacem et perséquere eam.
12Veníte, fílii, audíte me:*
  timórem Dómini docébo vos.
13Quis est homo, qui vult vitam,*
  díligit dies, ut vídeat bonum?
14Próhibe linguam tuam a malo,*
  et lábia tua ne loquántur dolum.
15Divérte a malo et fac bonum,*
  inquíre pacem et perséquere eam.
16Oculi Dómini super iustos,*
  et aures eius in clamórem eórum.
17Vultus autem Dómini super faciéntes mala,*
  ut perdat de terra memóriam eórum.
18Clamavérunt, et Dóminus exaudívit*
  et ex ómnibus tribulatiónibus eórum liberávit eos.
19Iuxta est Dóminus iis, qui contríto sunt corde,*
  et confráctos spíritu salvábit.
20Multæ tribulatiónes iustórum,*
  et de ómnibus his liberábit eos Dóminus.
21Custódit ómnia ossa eórum,*
  unum ex his non conterétur.
22Interfíciet peccatórem malítia,*
  et, qui odérunt iustum, puniéntur.
23Rédimet Dóminus ánimas servórum suórum,*
  et non puniéntur omnes, qui sperant in eo.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*

Psalm 33 (34)
Let peace be all your quest and aim.
Come, children, listen to me:
  I shall teach you the fear of the Lord.
Who is the man who desires life,
  who wants to live long to enjoy good things?
Do not let your tongue speak evil:
  let your lips not utter deceit.
Avoid evil, do good:
  seek peace and follow it.
The eyes of the Lord are on the just
  and his ears hear their cries;
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil:
  he wipes their memory from the earth.
The just cried out, and the Lord listened
  and freed them from all their many troubles.
The Lord is close to the broken-hearted:
  the crushed in spirit he will save.
Many are the troubles of the just,
  but the Lord will free them from all of them.
He will protect all their bones:
  not one will be broken.
Their own evil destroys sinners:
  those who hate the just will be punished.
The Lord will redeem the souls of his servants:
  those who put their hope in him will not be punished.
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.
Amen.
Let peace be all your quest and aim.

  et exaudívit me.
2Dómine, líbera ánimam meam a lábiis mendácii,*
  a lingua dolósa.
3Quid detur tibi aut quid apponátur tibi,*
  lingua dolósa?
4Sagíttæ poténtis acútæ*
  cum carbónibus iuniperórum.
5Heu mihi, quia peregrinátus sum in Mosoch,*
  habitávi ad tabernácula Cedar!
6Multum íncola fuit ánima mea*

Psalm 119 (120)
Longing for peace
I called and the Lord answered me.
I was in trouble, and cried to the Lord;
  and he answered me.
Lord, free me from the lips of liars,
  from deceitful tongues.
What will be given you, what will you receive,
  deceitful tongue?
Sharp arrows from the warrior,
  hardened in the flames.
Alas, I am an exile in Meshech;
  I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
My soul has lived too long
  with those who hate peace.
I am for making peace;
  but whenever I spoke, they attacked me.
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,

  qui custódit Israel.

The guardian of the people
May the Lord guard your going in and coming out.
I shall lift my eyes to the hills:
  where is my help to come from?
My help will come from the Lord,
  who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip:
  he will not doze, your guardian.
Behold, he will not doze or sleep,
  the guardian of Israel.
The Lord is your guardian, the Lord is your shade;
  he is at your right hand.
By day the sun will not strike you;
  nor the moon by night.
The Lord will guard you from all harm;
  the Lord will guard your life.
The Lord will guard your coming and your going
  both now and for ever.
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.
Amen.
May the Lord guard your going in and coming out.

Jerusalem, the holy city
I rejoiced in the things which were said to me.
They filled me with joy when they said,
  “We will go to the house of the Lord.”
Now our feet are standing
  within your gates, Jerusalem.
Jerusalem, built as a city,
  whole and self-contained:
there the tribes have gone up,
  the tribes of the Lord –
the witness of Israel,
  to praise the Lord’s name.
For there are the thrones of justice,
  the thrones of the house of David.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
  “Safety for those who care for you,
peace inside your walls,
  security within your ramparts!”
For my brethren and those near to me I will say
  “Peace be upon you.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
  I will call blessings upon you.
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.
Amen.
I rejoiced in the things which were said to me.
