Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: – as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia. HYMN On Jordan’s bank the Baptist’s cry Announces that the Lord is nigh; Come, then, and hearken, for he brings Glad tidings from the King of kings! Then cleansed be every breast from sin; Make straight the way for God within; Prepare we in our hearts a home, Where such a mighty Guest may come. For Thou art our Salvation, Lord, Our Refuge, and our great Reward. Without Thy grace our souls must fade And wither like a flower decayed. Stretch forth Thine hand, to heal our sore, And make us rise and fall no more; Once more upon Thy people shine, And fill the world with love divine. All praise, eternal Son, to Thee, Whose advent sets Thy people free; Whom with the Father we adore And Holy Ghost forever more. Amen. “On Jordan’s banks the Baptist’s cry” by The Choir of St Edmundsbury Cathedral; Words: Charles Coffin, 1736. Music: Musikalisches Handbuch, 1690. “On Jordan’s banks the Baptist’s cry” performed by The Choir of St Edmundsbury Cathedral is available from Amazon.com PSALMODY Ant. 1 John tried to prevent Jesus and said: I should be baptized by you, and do you come to me? Psalm 120 Longing for peace Be patient in suffering, be constant in prayer (Romans 12:12) To the Lord in the hour of my distress I call and he answers me. O Lord, save my soul from lying lips, from the tongue of the deceitful. What shall he repay you in return, O treacherous tongue? The warriors arrows sharpened and coals, red-hot, blazing. Alas, that I abide a stranger in Meshech, dwell among the tents of Kedar! Long enough have I been dwelling with those who hate peace. I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for fighting. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: – as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Psalm 121 Guardian of his people Never again will they hunger and thirst, never again know scorching heat (Revelation 7:16) I lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall come my help? My help shall come from the Lord who made heaven and earth. May he never allow you to stumble! Let him sleep not, your guard. No, he sleeps not nor slumbers, Israel’s guard. The Lord is your guard and your shade; at your right side he stands. By day the sun shall not smite you nor the moon in the night. The Lord will guard you from evil, he will guard your soul. The Lord will guard your going and coming both now and for ever. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: – as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Psalm 122 The holy city, Jerusalem You have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem (Hebrews 12:22) I rejoiced when I heard them say: Let us go to God’s house. And now our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem is built as a city strongly compact. It is there that the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord. For Israel’s law it is, there to praise the Lord’s name. There were set the thrones of judgment of the house of David. For the peace of Jerusalem pray: “Peace be to your homes! May peace reign in your walls, in your palaces, peace!” For love of my brethren and friends I say: Peace upon you. For love of the house of the Lord I will ask for your good. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: – as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Ant.
