I love the Lord, because he heard my voice:
the voice of my supplication.
2 Because he inclined his ear to me:
in the day that I called to him.
11 How shall I repay the Lord:
for all his benefits to me?
12 I will take up the cup of salvation:
and call upon the name of the Lord.
13 I will pay my vows to the Lord:
in the presence of all his people.
14 Grievous in the sight of the Lord:
is the death of his faithful ones.
15 O Lord, I am your servant your servant and the child of your handmaid:

Hear the wisdom of Jesus:
Abide in my love:
Love your enemies:
Love your neighbour as yourself:
Love one another as I have loved you:
Above all, love God with the whole of your being:
O God of Forgiveness we contemplate you …
You pour out your lifeblood in love for us,
you pursue us and disturb us and accept us,
you meet our sin and pain with the gift of a
costly and infinite enduring, overcoming evil with good.
O God of Forgiveness, we contemplate you …
