1st Sunday of Advent (Year B)

Psalm text (Ps 80:2-3, 15-16, 18-19)

Lord, make us turn to You. Let us see Your face and we shall be saved.

O shepherd of Israel, hearken,
from Your throne upon the cherubim, shine forth.
Rouse Your power,
and come to save us.

Once again, O Lord of hosts,
look down from Heaven and see;
take care of this vine, and protect what Your right hand has planted,
the Son of Man, Whom You, Yourself, made strong.

May Your help be with the Man of Your right hand,
with the Son of Man, Whom You, Yourself, made strong
Then we will no more withdraw from You.
Give us new life, and we will call upon Your name.




Gospel Verse (Ps 85:8)

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