JULY 26th, 2014 – RESPONSORIAL PSALM – PSALM 83

R. How lovely is your dwelling place,
Lord, God of hosts.

1. My soul is longing and yearning,
is yearning for the courts of the Lord.
My heart and my soul ring out their joy
to God, the living God. (R.)

2. The sparrow herself finds a home
and the swallow a nest for her brood;
she lays her young by your altars,
Lord of hosts, my king and my God. (R.)

3. They are happy, who dwell in your house,
for ever singing your praise.
Turn your eyes, O God, our shield,
look on the face of your anointed. (R.)

4. One day within your courts
is better than a thousand elsewhere.
The threshold of the house of God
I prefer to the dwellings of the wicked. (R.)

ALLELUIA

Alleluia, alleluia!
The word of the Lord is something alive and active;
it can judge secret emotions and thoughts.
Alleluia!
