PROPER 23 ( Oct 9 - Oct 15)

Page 738 Psalm 106 vss 1-6, 20-24

1. Praise the Lord;

O give thanks to the Lord for he is good :

and his mercy endures for ever.

2. Who can express the mighty acts of the Lord :

or fully voice his praise?

3. Blessed are those who act according to justice :

who at all times do the right.

4. Remember me O Lord

when you visit your people with your favour :

and come to me also with your salvation,

5. That I may see the prosperity of your chosen :

that I may rejoice with the rejoicing of your people,

and exult with those who are your own.

6. We have sinned like our fathers :

we have acted perversely and done wrong.

20. At Horeb they made themselves a calf :

and bowed down in worship to an image.

21. And so they exchanged the glory of God :

for the likeness of an ox that eats hay.

22. They forgot God who was their saviour :

that had done such great things in Egypt,

23. Who had worked his wonders in the land of Ham :

and his terrible deeds at the Red Sea.

24. Therefore he thought to destroy them :

had not Moses his servant stood before him in the breach *

to turn away his wrath from destroying them.

Glory to the Father...
