23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time C: Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 90:3-4, 5-6, 12-13, 14, 17

In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.

Verse 1:

You turn man back to dust,
   saying, “Return, O children of men.”
For a thousand years in your sight
   are as yesterday, now that it is past,
   or as a watch of the night.

Verse 2:

You make an end of them in their sleep;
   the next morning they are like the changing grass,
which at dawn springs up anew,
   but by evening wilts and fades.

Verse 3:

Teach us to number our days aright,
   that we may gain wisdom of heart.
Return, O LORD! How long?
   Have pity on your servants!

Verse 4:

Fill us at daybreak with your kindness,
   that we may shout for joy and gladness all our days.
And may the gracious care of the LORD our God be ours;
   prosper the work of our hands for us!
   Prosper the work of our hands!
