4th Sunday of Advent (Year A)

Psalm text (Ps 24:1-2,3-4ab,5-6)

Let the Lord enter; he is king of glory.

The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it,
the world, and those who live in it;
for he has founded it on the seas,
and established it on the river

Who shall ascend the mountain of the Lord?
And who shall stand in his holy place?
Those who have clean hands and pure hearts,
who do not lift up their souls to what is false.

They will receive blessing from the Lord,
and vindication from the God of their salvation.
6 Such is the company of those who seek him,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob.

Gospel Verse (Mt 1:23)

A virgin will give birth to a son; his name will be Emmanuel: God is with us.

Psalm text (Ps 24:1-2, 3-4, 5-6)

Let the Lord enter; He is king of glory.

The Lord's are the earth and its fullness;
the world and those who dwell in it.
For he founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the rivers.

Who can ascend the mountain of the Lord?
or who may stand in His holy place?
One whose hands are sinless, whose heart is clean,
who desires not what is vain.

He shall receive a blessing from the Lord,
a reward from God his savior.
Such is the race that seeks for him,
that seeks the face of the God of Jacob.
