4th Sunday of Advent (Year B)

Psalm text (Ps 89:2-3, 4-5, 27+29)

For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

The promises of the Lord I will sing forever;
through all generations my mouth shall proclaim Your faithfulness.
For You have said, "My kindness is established forever";
in heaven You have confirmed Your faithfulness.

I have made a covenant with My chosen one,
I have sworn to David My servant:
forever will I confirm your posterity
and establish your throne for all generations.

He shall say of Me, "You are my Father,
My God, the Rock, My savior."
Forever I will maintain my kindness toward him,
and My covenant with him stands firm.




Gospel Verse (Lk 1:38)

Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.
