Entrance Antiphon – 5th Lent (Mode I, De La Torre)
Lyrics / Letras
Give me justice, O God,
and plead my cause against a nation that is faithless.
From the deceitful and cunning rescue me,
for you, O God, are my strength.
Why have you cast me off? And why do I go sorrowful
while the enemy afflicts me?
O send forth your light and your truth;
let them lead me, let them bring me to your holy mountain,
to the place where you dwell.
To you, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp.
Why are you sad, O my soul? And why do you sigh within me?
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.
