1st Sunday of Advent (Year C)

Psalm text (Ps 24:4-5,8-9,10,14)

To you, O Lord, I lift my soul.

Lord, make me know your ways.
Lord, teach me your paths.
Make me walk in your truth, and teach me:
for you are God my Saviour.

The Lord is good and upright.
He shows the path to those who stray,
he guides the humble in the right path;
he teaches his way to the poor.

His ways are faithfulness and love
for those who keep his covenant and will.
The Lord’s friendship is for those who revere him;
to them he reveals his covenant.

Gospel Verse (Ps 84:8)

Lord, show us your mercy and love, and grant us your salvation.

Psalm text (Ps 25:4-5, 8-9, 10+14)

To You, O Lord, I lift my soul.

Your ways, O Lord, make know to me.
Teach me Your paths.
Guide me in Your truth and teach me,
for You are God my savior,
and for You I wait all the day.

Good and upright is the Lord.
Thus He shows sinners the way.
He guides the humble to justice,
and teaches the humble His way.

All the paths of the Lord are kindness and constancy
toward those who keep His covenant and His decrees.
The friendship of the Lord is with those who fear Him,
and His covenant, for their instruction.



Gospel Verse (Ps 85:8)

Show us, Lord, Your love; and grant us Your salvation.
