Be not far from Me, for trouble is near.
How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? § Do not hide Your face from me; do not turn Your servant away in anger; You have been my help; do not leave me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. § The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them.
I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. § Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. § Truly my soul silently waits for God; from Him comes my salvation … My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.

Hallowed be Your name.
For you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. § Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? § Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty.
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! § I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim. And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!” … So I said: “Woe is me, for I am undone!” § I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself.
The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. § That we may be partakers of His holiness. § Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus … let us draw near with a true heart.
