Nativity of St John the Baptist - Vigil

Psalm text (Ps 71:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 15+17)

Since my mother's womb, You have been my strength.

In You, O Lord, I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame.
In Your justice rescue me, and deliver me;
incline Your ear to me and save me.

Be my rock of refuge,
a stronghold to give me safety,
for You are my rock and my fortress.
O God, rescue me from the hand of the wicked.

For You are my hope, O Lord;
my trust, O God, from my youth.
On You I depend from birth;
from my mother's womb You are my strength.

My mouth shall declare Your justice,
day by day Your salvation.
O God, You have taught me, taught me from my youth,
and till the present I proclaim Your wondrous deeds.

Gospel Verse (cf Jn 1:17; Lk 1:17)
