 Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart, naught be all else to me save that thou art;
thou my best thought in the day and night, waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

 Be thou my wisdom, be thou my true word, I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord;
thou my great Father, and I thy true son; thou in me dwelling, and I with thee one.

 High King of heaven when battle is done, grant heaven’s joy to me, O bright heaven’s sun;
Christ of my own heart, whatever befall, still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

Plainson Mass 8:   Kyrie, eleison.   Kyrie, eleison.
                                     Christe, eleison.  Christe, eleison.  
                                    Kyrie, eleison.   Kyrie, eleison.

The 1st reading:  Genesis 12: 1-4a

[audio:

Psalm 32  He fills the earth with his love.

The word of the Lord is faithful, we trust him in all he does.
The Lord loves justice, justice and fairness, he fills the earth,
he fills the earth, he fills the earth with his love. He fills the earth with his love.

 By his word the heav’ns were made; the breath of his mouth made the stars.
The Lord looks on those, those who revere him, on those who hope,
on those who hope, on those who hope in his love. He fills the earth with his love.

 And so we await the Lord, the Lord is our help and shield.
We trust that your love will be upon us, we place all our hope, 
we place all our hope, we place all our hope in you. He fills the earth with his love.

 2nd reading: 2nd letter to Timothy 1:8b – 10

To welcome the Gospel: 

Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory.  Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory
The Father’s voice was heard from the cloud: This is my Son, the beloved.  Listen to him. Listen to him.
  
Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory.  Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory
