15th Sunday of Ordinary Time: Communion Antiphon
The sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest for her young:
by your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.
Blessed are they who dwell in your house,
for ever singing your praise.
How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts.
My soul is longing and yearning for the courts of the Lord.
My heart and my flesh cry out to the living God.
O Lord, God of hosts, hear my prayer;
give ear, O God of Jacob.
Turn your eyes, O God, our shield;
look on the face of your anointed.
One day within your courts
is better than a thousand elsewhere.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
