Friday of week 29 in Ordinary Time, based on Psalm 24: 1-2, 3-4(a,b), 5-6

Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face

The earth is the LORD’S and all that is in it,
the world, and those who live in it;
for he has founded it on the seas,
and established it on the rivers.

Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face
 
   Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD?
And who shall stand in his holy place?
Those who have clean hands and pure hearts,
who do not lift up their souls to what is false,

Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face

They will receive blessing from the LORD,
and vindication from the God of their salvation.
Such is the company of those who seek him,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob.

Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face
