- Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion:
which cannot be shaken but stands forever.
- As the hills enfold Jerusalem:
so you enfold your people O Lord, now and forever.
- The sceptre of the wicked shall not hold sway
over land assigned to the just:
lest the just should put out their hand to do evil.
- Do good O Lord to those who are good:
to those who are upright in heart.
- As for those who turn aside into crooked ways,
the Lord shall lead them away with evil-doers:
but upon Israel there shall be peace.
God, we thank you for the bright days and festivals,
and especially for tomorrow.
Praise to you for the feast of St John the Evangelist;
give a us new heart to go on our way
to turn the world again.
Thank Him for 3 things that happened today (Good or Not!)
your kingdom come
on earth as in heaven.
Ruler of the everlasting kingdom,
prince of peace, champion of the despised:
you are the king;
you make a cross your throne;
you wear a crown of thorns;
you call your subjects friends.
Help us to take up our cross,
to hunger and thirst for all that is good;
then will your kingdom come on earth as in heaven.
