The Lord is gracious and compassionate,

    slow to anger and rich in love.

The Lord is good to all;

    he has compassion on all he has made.

 All your works praise you, Lord;

    your faithful people extol you.

They tell of the glory of your kingdom

    and speak of your might,

 so that all people may know of your mighty acts

    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,

    and your dominion endures through all generations.

The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises

    and faithful in all he does.

 The Lord upholds all who fall

    and lifts up all who are bowed down.
Psalm 145:8-14


The lectionary readings for this fifth Sunday after Pentecost are:

Psalm:  Psalm 145:8-14
First reading:  Zechariah 9:9-12

The Collect:

Almighty God,
your Son Jesus Christ has taught us
that what we do for the least of your children
we do also for him.
Give us the will to serve others
as he was the servant of all,
who gave up his life and died for us,
but lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
Amen
