2nd Sunday of Advent (Year B)

Psalm text (Ps 85:9-10, 11-12, 13-14)

Lord, let us see Your kindness, and grant us Your salvation.

I will hear what God proclaims;
the Lord -- for He proclaims peace.
Near indeed is His salvation to those who fear Him,
glory dwelling in our land.

Kindness and truth shall meet;
justice and peace shall kiss.
Truth shall spring out of the earth,
and justice shall look down from heaven.

The Lord Himself will give His benefits;
our land shall yield its increase.
Justice shall walk before Him,
and prepare the way of His steps.



Gospel Verse (Lk 3:4+6)

Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths; all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
