4th Sunday of Advent (Year B)

Psalm text (Ps 88:2-5,27,29)

For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

I will sing for ever of your love, O Lord;
through all ages my mouth will proclaim your truth.
Of this I am sure, that your love lasts for ever,
that your truth is firmly established as the heavens.

‘I have made a covenant with my chosen one;
I have sworn to David my servant:
I will establish your dynasty for ever
and set up your throne through all ages.’

He will say to me: ‘You are my father,
my God, the rock who saves me.’
I will keep my love for him always;
for him my covenant shall endure.

Gospel Verse (Lk 1:38)

I am the servant of the Lord: may his will for me be done.

Psalm text (Ps 89:2-3, 4-5, 27+29)

For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

The promises of the Lord I will sing forever;
through all generations my mouth shall proclaim Your faithfulness.
For You have said, "My kindness is established forever";
in heaven You have confirmed Your faithfulness.

I have made a covenant with My chosen one,
I have sworn to David My servant:
forever will I confirm your posterity
and establish your throne for all generations.

He shall say of Me, "You are my Father,
My God, the Rock, My savior."
Forever I will maintain my kindness toward him,
and My covenant with him stands firm.
