3rd Sunday of Advent (Year A)

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.
