Morning Canticle: Venite

Venite    Psalm 95:1-7

Come, let us sing to the Lord; * 
   let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation. 
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving * 
   and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.

For the Lord is a great God, * 
   and a great King above all gods. 
In his hand are the caverns of the earth, * 
   and the heights of the hills are his also. 
The sea is his, for he made it, * 
   and his hands have molded the dry land.

Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, * 
   and kneel before the Lord our Maker. 
For he is our God, 
and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. * 
   Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!
