R.) Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.
In you, O Lord, I take refuge, let me never be put to shame. In your justice, set me free. Into your hands I commend my spirit. It is you who will redeem me, Lord. (R.)
You who have my affliction and taken heed of my soul’s distress, have not handed me over to the enemy, but set my feet at large. (R.)
But as for me, I trust in you, Lord, I say: “You are my God.” My life is in your hands, deliver me from the hands of those who hate me. (R.)
“Let your face shine on your servant. Save me in your love.” Be strong, let your heart take courage, all who hope in the Lord. (R.)
R.) Alleluia, alleluia!
Happy those who are persecuted in the cause of right, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
