The Lord is my light and my help;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
Before whom shall I shrink? R/
There is one thing I ask of the Lord,
For this I long,
To live in the house of my Lord
All the days of my life,
To savour the sweetness of the Lord,
To behold his temple. R/
I am sure I shall see the Lord 's goodness in the land of the living.
Hope in him, hold firm and take heart.
Hope in the Lord! R/
As we pray the Psalm, we long for and anticipate the coming of Christ, during Advent.
We make our prayer, through Christ, our Lord.
