Holy Saturday: night prayer

 

vela

Psalm 68

Lord, listen to me for you are good, give ear to my plea.

My eyes fail, looking for my God.

For I endure scorn for your sake,

and shame covers my face.

I am a foreigner to my own family,

a stranger to my own mother’s children;

for zeal for your house consumes me,

and the insults of those who insult you fall on me.

But I pray to you, Lord,

in the time of your favor;

in your great love, O God,

answer me with your sure salvation.

Rescue me from the mire,

do not let me sink.

Answer me, Lord, out of the goodness of your love;

in your great mercy turn to me.

Do not hide your face from your servant;

answer me quickly for I am in trouble.

Come near and rescue me.

I will praise God’s name in song

and glorify him with thanksgiving.

The poor will see and be glad,

you who seek God, may your hearts live!
