2nd Sunday of Lent (Year A)

Psalm text (Ps 33:4-5,18-19,20+22)

Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.

The word of the Lord is upright,
and all his work is done in faithfulness.
He loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord.

Truly the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him,
on those who hope in his steadfast love,
to deliver their soul from death,
and to keep them alive in famine.

Our soul waits for the Lord;
he is our help and shield.
Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
even as we hope in you.

Gospel Verse (Lk 9:35)

From the shining cloud the Father’s voice is heard: This is my beloved Son, hear him.

Lord, let Your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in You.

Upright is the word of the Lord,
and all His works are trustworthy.
He loves justice and right;
of the kindness of the Lord the earth is full.

See, the eyes of the Lord are upon those who fear Him,
upon those who hope for His kindness,
to deliver them from death
and preserve them in spite of famine.

Our soul waits for the Lord,
who is our help and our shield.
May Your kindness, O Lord, be upon us
who have put our hope in You.
