Psalm 50: A pure heart create for me, O God.

 

Have mercy on me, God, in your kindness, in compassion blot out my offence.
O  wash me more and more from my guilt, and cleanse me from my sin.

A pure heart create for me, O God.

 My offences truly I know them; my sin is always before me.
Against you alone have I sinned.  What is evil in your sight I have done. 
A pure heart create for me, O God.

Create for me a heart that is pure, put a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from your presence, nor deprive me of your holy spirit. 
A pure heart create for me, O God.

With a spirit of fervour sustain me.  Give again the joy of your help,
O Lord, open my lips and my mouth shall declare your praise. 
A pure heart create for me, O God.


Reading II: Romans 5:12-19

 To welcome the Gospel: 

Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory.  Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory.
Not by bread alone do we live, but by every word from   the mouth of God;
not by bread alone, not by bread alone, not by bread alone.   
Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory.     Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory

Thanks very much to those who were able to attend the Vespers on Thursday in St Aloysius, Garnethill, to mark the feast of St John Ogilvie.
