SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
For those of us who are missing being led by our choir at a Mass on the weekend, here is a link to a beautiful piece of sacred music.
Here are some lyrics to help you join in this beautiful song of prayer:
O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands:
serve the Lord with gladness, and come before his presence with a song.
Be ye sure that the Lord he is God:
it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;
we are his children and the sheep of his pasture.
O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise;
be thankful unto him and speak good of his Name.
For the Lord is gracious, his mercy is everlasting,
and his truth endureth from generation to generation.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
