Lent is a preparation, a spiritually-disciplined journey, a purposeful reflection on Jesus Christ.
Praise the name of Yahweh.
Give praise, you servants of Yahweh
who stand in the house of Yahweh,
in the courts of the house of our God.
Praise Yahweh, for Yahweh is good;
sing praise to His name, for it is delightful.
For Yahweh has chosen Jacob for Himself,
Israel as His treasured possession.
For I know that Yahweh is great;
our Lord is greater than all gods.
Yahweh does whatever He pleases
in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and all the depths.
Yahweh, Your name endures forever,
Your reputation, Yahweh,
through all generations.
For Yahweh will vindicate His people
and have compassion on His servants.
House of Levi, praise Yahweh!
You who revere the Lord, praise the Lord!
May the Lord be praised from Zion;
He dwells in Jerusalem.
Hallelujah! (Psalm 135:1-6,13-14,20-21)
