Angels of the Lord: Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people of good will

Shout with a loud voice, joyful messenger to Jerusalem. Here is the Lord God coming with power. Is 40:9–10


Psalm 70: 3-6. 16-17 r. 8
Prayer in old age

8My lips are filled with your praise,with your glory all the day long.

3Be a rock where I can take refuge,
a mighty stronghold to save me;
4Free me from the hand of the wicked,
from the grip of the unjust, of the oppressor.

5It is you, O Lord, who are my hope,
my trust, O Lord, since my youth.
6On you I have leaned from my birth,
from my mother's womb you have been my help.
My hope has always been in you.

16I will declare the Lord's mighty deeds
proclaiming your justice, yours alone.
17O God, you have taught me from my youth
and I proclaim your wonders still.
