Responsive Reading Psalm 132;1-12
Leader: Lord, remember David and all his self-denial.
All: He swore an oath to the Lord, he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob.
Leader: I will enter my house or got to my bed.
All: I will allow no sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids,
Leader: Till I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.
All: We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the hills of Jaar:
Leader: “Let us go to his dwelling place, let us worship at his footstool, saying,
All: ‘Arise, Lord, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.
Leader: May your priests be clothed with your righteousness; may your faithful people sing for joy.’ “
All: For the sake of your servant David, do not reject your anointed one.
Leader: The Lord swore an oath to David, a sure oath he will not revoke: “One of your own descendants I will place on your throne.
All: If your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit on the throne for ever and ever.” Amen
