  • First Reading: Isaiah 40:25-31

    25 And to whom have ye likened me, or made me equal, saith the Holy One?
    26 Lift up your eyes on high, and see who hath created these things: who bringeth out their host by number, and calleth them all by their names: by the greatness of his might, and strength, and power, not one of them was missing.
    27 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel: My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
    28 Knowest thou not, or hast thou not heard? the Lord is the everlasting God, who hath created the ends of the earth: he shall not faint, nor labour, neither is there any searching out of his wisdom.
    29 It is he that giveth strength to the weary, and increaseth force and might to them that are not.
    30 Youths shall faint, and labour, and young men shall fall by infirmity.
    31 But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

  • Psalm: Psalms 103:1-2, 3-4, 8 and 10

    1 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and let all that is within me bless his holy name.
    2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and never forget all he hath done for thee.
    3 Who forgiveth all thy iniquities: who healeth all thy diseases.
    4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction: who crowneth thee with mercy and compassion.
    8 The Lord is compassionate and merciful: longsuffering and plenteous in mercy.
    10 He hath not dealt with us according to our sins: nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

  • Gospel: Matthew 11:28-30

    28 Come to me, all you that labour, and are burdened, and I will refresh you.
    29 Take up my yoke upon you, and learn of me, because I am meek, and humble of heart: and you shall find rest to your souls.
    30 For my yoke is sweet and my burden light.
