 Introit:   You alone are holy, and you alone are Lord,
and you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ our Lord.

In you, O Lord, I take refuge.  Let me never be put to shame. 
In your justice rescue me, hear me, pay heed to me and save me. 
Rs:  You alone are holy . . . . . .

St Gregory Gloria:  Glory to God in the highest and peace to his people on earth….


Psalm 30

In you, O Lord, I take refuge, let me never be put to shame. 
In your justice set me free, it is you who will redeem me, Lord.
Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.

In the face of all my foes, I am a reproach,
an object of scorn to my neighbours and of fear to my friends.  
Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.

Those who see me in the street run far away from me. 
I am like a dead man, forgotten in men’s hearts, like a thing thrown away. 
Into your hands, O Lord….


Let your face shine on your servant, and save me in your love. 
Be strong, let your heart take courage, all you who hope in the Lord. 
Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.

Reading II: Romans 3:21-25, 28

 To welcome the Gospel:  Alleluia, alleluia. Speak, O Lord, your servant is list’ning, alleluia.  Alleluia, alleluia.
