Sunday's Psalm--Second Sunday of Ordinary Time

R. Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

I have waited, waited for the LORD,
and he stooped toward me and heard my cry.
And he put a new song into my mouth,
a hymn to our God.

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.
Sacrifice or offering you wished not,
but ears ope to pbedience you gave me.
Holocausts or sin-offerings you sought not;
then said I, "Behold I come."
Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

"In the written scroll it is prescribed for me,
to do your will, O my God, is my delight,
and your law is within my heart!"
Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.
I announce your justice in the vast assembly;
I did not restrain my lips, as you, O LORD, know.
Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.


Psalm 40: 2, 4, 7-8, 8-9, 10
