O come, all ye faithful

Look the Lord will come to save his people. Blessed are those who are ready to meet him.

Psalm 33:2-3. 4-7. 16. 18–19. 23
Praise and fear of God

2I will bless the Lord at all times,
his praise always on my lips;
3in the Lord my soul shall make its boast.
The humble shall hear and be glad.

4Glorify the Lord with me.
Together let us praise his name.
5I sought the Lord and he answered me;
from all my terrors he set me free.

6Look towards him and be radiant;
let your faces not be abashed.
7This poor man called; the Lord heard him.
and rescued him from all his distress.

16The Lord turns his face against the wicked
to destroy their remembrance from the earth.

18They call and the Lord hears
and rescues them in all their distress.
19The Lord is close to the broken-hearted;
those whose spirit is crushed he will save.

23The Lord ransoms the souls of his servants.
Those who hide in him shall not be condemned.
