Ash Wednesday

Wednesday was the beginning of Lent so we had our Ash Wednesday service and the choir sang Be Merciful Unto Me O, Lord by John Blow. I think from now on I'll post the responsive reading from each Sunday and I'll start with the Wednesday service ones.

Psalm 6 To the Chief Musician.

With stringed instruments. On an eight-stringed harp. A Psalm of David.

1 O LORD, do not rebuke me in Your anger,

Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure.

2 Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am weak;

O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled.

3 My soul also is greatly troubled;

But You, O LORD--how long?

4 Return, O LORD, deliver me!

Oh, save me for Your mercies' sake!

5 For in death there is no remembrance of You;

In the grave who will give You thanks?

6 I am weary with my groaning; all night I make my bed swim;

I drench my couch with my tears.

7 My eye wastes away because of grief;

It grows old because of all my enemies.

8 Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;

For the LORD has heard the voice of my weeping.

9 The LORD has heard my supplication;

The LORD will receive my prayer.

10 Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled;

Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.
