1 The Praise of a Canticle, of David himself. Come, let us exult in the Lord. Let us shout joyfully to God, our Savior.
2 Let us anticipate his presence with confession, and let us sing joyfully to him with psalms.
3 For the Lord is a great God and a great King over all gods.
4 For in his hand are all the limits of the earth, and the heights of the mountains are his.
5 For the sea is his, and he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
6 Come, let us adore and fall prostrate, and let us weep before the Lord who made us.
7 For he is the Lord our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
8 If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts:
9 as in the provocation, according to the day of temptation in the wilderness, where your fathers tempted me; they tested me, though they had seen my works.
Habakkuk 1:2-3; 2:2-4
2 How long, O Lord, shall I cry out, and you will not heed? Shall I shout to you while suffering violence, and you will not save?
3 Why have you revealed to me iniquity and hardship, to see plunder and injustice opposite me? And there has been judgment, but the opposition is more powerful.
2 And the Lord responded to me and said: Write the vision and explain it on tablets, so that he who reads it may run through it.
3 For as yet the vision is far off, and it will appear in the end, and it will not lie. If it expresses any delay, wait for it. For it is arriving and it will arrive, and it will not be hindered.
4 Behold, he who is unbelieving, his soul will not be right within himself; but he who is just shall live in his faith.
