2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year B)

Psalm text (Ps 40:2+4, 7-8a, 8b-9, 10)

Here am I, Lord; I come to do Your will.

I have waited, waited for the Lord,
and He stooped toward me and heard my cry.
And He put a new song in to my mouth,
a hymn to our God.

Sacrifice or offering, You wished not,
but ears open to obedience You gave me.
Holocausts or sin offerings You sought not;
then said I, "Behold I come."

In the written scroll it is prescribed for me,
to do Your will, O my God, is my delight,
and Your law is within my heart.

I announced Your justice in the vast assembly;
I did not restrain my lips, as You, O Lord, know.




Gospel Verse (Jn 1:41+17b)

We have found the Messiah; Jesus Christ, who brings us truth and grace.
