Responsorial Psalm for the Thursday of the 2nd Week in Ordinary Time

Psalm 40:7-8a, 8b-9, 10, 17

Summary: God's will, not sacrifices, is my joy and commitment. His teachings guide my heart. Proclaiming His righteousness, I pray all who seek Him rejoice in His magnificent salvation.

Obedience and Joy in the Lord

R. Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.

Sacrifice or oblation you wished not,
but ears open to obedience you gave me.
Burnt offerings or sin-offerings you sought not;
then said I, “Behold I come.”

R. Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.

“In the written scroll it is prescribed for me,
To do your will, O my God, is my delight,
and your law is within my heart!”
R. Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.
I announced your justice in the vast assembly;
I did not restrain my lips, as you, O LORD, know.

R. Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.

May all who seek you
exult and be glad in you,
And may those who love your salvation
say ever, “The LORD be glorified.”

R. Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.
