Blessed be God,
you have not rejected my prayer
or removed your steadfast love from me.
Invitatory Psalm 84
O Lord, God of hosts, hear my prayer;
give ear, O God of Jacob!
Behold our shield, O God;
look on the face of your anointed.
For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than live in the tents of wickedness.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
God bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does the Lord withhold
from those who walk uprightly..
O Lord of hosts,
happy is everyone who trust in you.
