Psalms

Psalm 31 In te, Domine, speravi

  In you, O LORD, have I taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; *
deliver me in your righteousness.
  Incline your ear to me; *
make haste to deliver me.
  Be my strong rock, a castle to keep me safe, for you are my crag and my stronghold; *
for the sake of your Name, lead me and guide me.
  Take me out of the net that they have secretly set for me, *
for you are my tower of strength.
  Into your hands I commend my spirit, *
for you have redeemed me, O LORD, O God of truth.

Psalm 134 Ecce nunc

  Behold now, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD, *
you that stand by night in the house of the LORD.
  Lift up your hands in the holy place and bless the LORD; *
the LORD who made heaven and earth bless you out of Zion.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
