Near to All Who Call

Play
For 3 September 2022, Memorial of Saint Gregory the Great, Pope, Doctor, based on Psalm 145:17-18, 19-20, 21

The Lord is near to all who call upon him.

The Lord is just in all his ways
and holy in all his works.
The Lord is near to all who call upon him,
to all who call upon him in truth.

The Lord is near to all who call upon him.

He fulfills the desire of those who fear him,
he hears their cry and saves them.
The Lord keeps all who love him,
but all the wicked he will destroy.

The Lord is near to all who call upon him.

May my mouth speak the praise of the Lord,
and may all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.

The Lord is near to all who call upon him.
