O God, our mighty tower, Creator of Heaven and Earth, Have mercy upon us. O God, our Redeemer, who died and rose again, Have mercy upon us.
O God, our Comforter, who strengthens all the faithful, Have mercy upon us. Holy Trinity, undivided, One God, Have mercy upon us.
Son of God, we beseech you to hear us. Son of God, we beseech you to hear us. Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, Have mercy upon us.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, Have mercy upon us.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, Grant us your peace.
I will bless the Lord at all times; * his praise shall ever be in my mouth.
I will glory in the Lord; * let the humble hear and rejoice.
Proclaim with me the greatness of the Lord; * let us exalt his Name together.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me * and delivered me out of all my terror.
Look upon him and be radiant, * and let not your faces be ashamed.
I called in my affliction and the Lord heard me * and saved me from all my troubles.
The angel of the Lord encompasses those who fear him, * and he will deliver them.
Taste and see that the Lord is good; * happy are they who trust in him!
Fear the Lord, you that are his saints, * for those who fear him lack nothing.
The young lions lack and suffer hunger, * but those who seek the Lord lack nothing that is good.
The Lord ransoms the life of his servants, * and none will be punished who trust in him.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
