Bless the Lord, whose name is to be praised,
Our Father who art in heaven,
who has given us his laws,
to show us the error of our ways,
Blessed is his son, Christ the Messiah,
who redeemed us from having broken them.
Blessed are you, O Holy Spirit,
who assists us in sinning no more,
and sustains us in the way of the Lord,
grant us wisdom and understanding this day.
Old Testament Reading - An end to weeping
17For see, I am creating new heavens and a new earth — so wonderful that no one will even think about the old ones anymore. 18Be glad; rejoice forever in my creation. Look! I will re-create Jerusalem as a place of happiness, and her people shall be a joy! 19And I will rejoice in Jerusalem and in my people; and the voice of weeping and crying shall not be heard there anymore.. . . . .Isaiah 65:17-19
