Sunday's Psalm--Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time

The just man is a light in darkness to the upright.

Light shines through the darkness for the upright;
he is gracious and merciful and just.
Well for the man who is gracious and lends,
who conducts his affairs with justice.

The just man is a light in darkness to the upright.


He shall never be moved;
the just one shall be in everlasting remembrance.
An evil report he shall not fear;
his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD

The just man is a light in darkness to the upright.


His heart is steadfast; he shall not fear.


Lavishly he gives to the poor;


His justice shall endure forever;


his horn shall be exalted in glory.


The just man is a light in darkness to the upright.

 


from Psalm 112
