The Nativity of St. John the Baptist, Day: Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 139:1b-3, 13-14ab, 14c-15

I praise you, for I am wonderfully made.

Verse 1:

O LORD, you have probed me, you know me:
   you know when I sit and when I stand;
   you understand my thoughts from afar.
My journeys and my rest you scrutinize,
   with all my ways you are familiar.

Verse 2:

Truly you have formed my inmost being;
   you knit me in my mother’s womb.
I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made;
   wonderful are your works.

Verse 3:

My soul also you knew full well;
   nor was my frame unknown to you
When I was made in secret,
   when I was fashioned in the depths of the earth.
