Psalm text (Ps 105:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 8-9)

The Lord remembers His covenant for ever.

Give thanks to the Lord, invoke His name;
make known among the nations His deeds.
Sing to Him, sing His praise,
proclaim all His wondrous deeds.

Glory in His holy name;
rejoice, O hearts that seek the Lord!
Look to the Lord in His strength;
constantly seek His face.

You descendants of Abraham, His servants,
sons of Jacob, His chosen ones!
He, the Lord, is our God;
throughout the earth His judgments prevail.

He remembers forever His covenant
which He made binding for a thousand generations
which He entered into with Abraham
and by His oath to Isaac.

Gospel Verse (Heb 1:1-2)

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets; in these days He has spoken to us through His Son.
