Psalm 119:129-136(q)

  1. Your instruction is wonderful:
    therefore I keep it with all my heart.
  2. The unfolding of your word gives light:
    and those who are untaught receive understanding.
  3. I open my mouth and sigh:
    with longing for your commandments.
  4. Turn to me and be merciful to me:
    as is your way with those who love you.
  5. Keep steady my footsteps, according to your promise:
    and let no evil get mastery over me.
  6. Rescue me from human oppression:
    so that I may keep your precepts.
  7. Let your face shine on your servant:
    and teach me your decrees.
  8. Tears stream from my eyes:
    because people do not heed your law.

Collect

Blessed are you holy God
in Brigid, abbess of Kildare,

may we in our time do the same.
Amen.
