17th Sunday in Ordinary Time C: Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 138:1-2, 2-3, 6-7, 7-8

Lord, on the day I called for help, you answered me.

Verse 1:

I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with all my heart,
   for you have heard the words of my mouth;
   in the presence of the angels I will sing your praise;
I will worship at your holy temple
   and give thanks to your name.

Verse 2:

Because of your kindness and your truth;
   for you have made great above all things
   your name and your promise.
When I called you answered me;
   you built up strength within me.

Verse 3:

The LORD is exalted, yet the lowly he sees,
   and the proud he knows from afar.
Though I walk amid distress, you preserve me;
   against the anger of my enemies you raise your hand.

Verse 4:

Your right hand saves me.
   The LORD will complete what he has done for me;
your kindness, O LORD, endures forever;
   forsake not the work of your hands.
