Psalm 28

L To you, O Lord, I call; my rock, be not / deaf to me, lest, if you be silent to me, I become like those who go down / to the pit.
C Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy, when I cry to / you for help, when I lift up my hands toward your most holy sanctu/ary.
L Do not drag me off with the wicked, with the workers of / evil, who speak peace with their neighbors while evil is / in their hearts.
C Give to them according to their work and according to the evil / of their deeds; give to them according to the work of their hands; render them their / due reward.
L Because they do not regard the works of the Lord or the work / of his hands, He will tear them down and build them / up no more.
C Blessed / be the Lord! For He has heard the voice of my pleas for / mercy.
L The Lord is my strength and my shield; in Him my heart trusts, and / I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give / thanks to Him.
C The Lord is the strength of His / people; He is the saving refuge of His a/nointed.
L Oh, save your people and bless your / heritage! Be their shepherd and carry them for/ever.
All: Glory be to the Father and / to the Son and to the Holy / Spirit; as it was in the be/ginning, is now, and will be forever. / Amen.

1 Holy God, we praise Thy name;
Lord of all, we bow before Thee.
All on earth Thy scepter claim,
All in heav’n above adore Thee.
Infinite Thy vast domain,
Everlasting is Thy reign.

5 Holy Father, holy Son,
Holy Spirit, three we name Thee;
Though in essence only one,
Undivided God we claim Thee
And, adoring, bend the knee
While we own the mystery.
