O God Come to my Assistance

Leader: O God come to my assistance …

All: Lord make haste to help …

Leader: Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and
to the Holy Spirit …

All: As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen

Hymn: Gather Us In

Leader: Those who sow in tears will reap in joy

Psalm 126:

Left: When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion,
then we thought we were dreaming.
Our mouths were filled with laughter;
our tongues sang for joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
“The LORD had done great things for them.”

Right: The LORD has done great things for us;
Oh, how happy we were!
Restore again our fortunes, LORD,
like the dry stream beds of the Negeb.

Left: Those who sow in tears will reap with cries of joy.
Those who go forth weeping, carrying sacks of seed, will
return with cries of joy, carrying their bundled sheaves.

Right: Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and
to the Holy Spirit …

All: As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.

Leader: Lord, you have raised us from earth; may you let the
seeds of justice, which we have sown in tears, grow and
increase in your sight. May we reap in joy the harvest we
hope for patiently.

Those who sow in tears will reap in joy

Hymn: O Father All –Creating

Magnificat:

Left: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
For he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowliness;
behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed.

Right: The Mighty One has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him.

Left: He has shown might with his arm, dispersed the
arrogant of mind and heart.
He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones
but lifted up the lowly.

Right: The hungry he has filled with good things;
the rich he has sent away empty.

Left: He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his
mercy, according to his promise to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his descendants forever.”

Right: Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and
to the Holy Spirit …

All: As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end.

Amen.
