  • First Reading: Isaiah 26: 7-9, 12, 16-19

    7 The way of the just is right, the path of the just is right to walk in.
    8 And in the way of thy judgments, O Lord, we have patiently waited for thee: thy name, and thy remembrance are the desire of the soul.
    9 My soul hath desired thee in the night: yea, and with my spirit within me in the morning early I will watch to thee. When thou shalt do thy judgments on the earth, the inhabitants of the world shall learn justice.

    12 Lord, thou wilt give us peace: for thou hast wrought all our works for us.

    16 Lord, they have sought after thee in distress, in the tribulation of murmuring thy instruction was with them.
    17 As a woman with child, when she draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs: so are we become in thy presence, O Lord.
    18 We have conceived, and been as it were in labour, and have brought forth wind: we have not wrought salvation on the earth, therefore the inhabitants of the earth have not fallen.
    19 Thy dead men shall live, my slain shall rise again: awake, and give praise, ye that dwell in the dust: for thy dew is the dew of the light: and the land of the giants thou shalt pull down into ruin.

  • Psalm: Psalms 102: 13-14AB, 15, 16-18, 19-21

    13 But thou, O Lord, endurest for ever: and thy memorial to all generations. [
    14 Thou shalt arise and have mercy on Sion: for it is time to have mercy on it, for the time is come.
    15 For the stones thereof have pleased thy servants: and they shall have pity on the earth thereof.

    16 And the Gentiles shall fear thy name, O Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
    17 For the Lord hath built up Sion: and he shall be seen in his glory.
    18 He hath had regard to the prayer of the humble: and he hath not despised their petition.

    19 Let these things be written unto another generation: and the people that shall be created shall praise the Lord:
    20 Because he hath looked forth from his high sanctuary: from heaven the Lord hath looked upon the earth.
    21 That he might hear the groans of them that are in fetters: that he might release the children of the slain:

  • 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.
