Chrism Mass

Psalm text (Ps 89:20-21,24+26.27-28)

For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

I have found my servant David;
with my holy oil I have anointed him;
my hand shall always remain with him;
my arm also shall strengthen him.

My faithfulness and steadfast love shall be with him;
and in my name his name shall be exalted.
He shall cry to me, “You are my Father,
my God, and the Rock of my salvation!”

I will make him the firstborn,
the highest of the kings of the earth.
Forever I will keep my steadfast love for him,
and my covenant with him will stand firm.

Psalm text (Ps 89:21-22, 25+27)

Forever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

I have found David, my servant;
with my holy oil I have anointed him,
that My hand may be always with him,
and that My arm may make him strong.

My faithfulness and My kindness shall be with him,
and through My name shall his horn be exalted.
He shall cry to Me, "You are my Father,
my God, the Rock, my Savior."
