3rd Sunday of Advent (Year A)

Psalm text (Ps 145:6-10)

Lord, come and save us.

It is the Lord who keeps faith for ever,
who is just to those who are oppressed.
It is he who gives bread to the hungry,
the Lord, who sets prisoners free.

It is the Lord who gives sight to the blind,
who raises up those who are bowed down,
the Lord, who protects the stranger
and upholds the widow and orphan.

It is the Lord who loves the just
but thwarts the path of the wicked.
The Lord will reign for ever,
Zion’s God, from age to age.

Gospel Verse (Is 61:1)

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me; he sent me to bring Good News to the poor.

Psalm text (Ps 146:6-7, 8-9a, 9b-10)

Lord, come and save us.

The Lord God keeps faith forever,
secures justice for the oppressed,
gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets the captives free.

The Lord gives sight to the blind;
the Lord raises up those who were bowed down.
The Lord loves the just;
the Lord protects strangers.

The fatherless and the widow He sustains,
but the way of the wicked He thwarts.
The Lord shall reigh forever;
your God, O Zion, through all generations.
