41B. Psalm 41 (A Responsorial Reading)

Refrain:
What a privilege to carry
everything to God in prayer!

1 What a privilege to carry
everything to God in prayer!

2 Are we weak and heavy laden?
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

3 Have we trials and temptations?
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

4 Do your friends despise, forsake you?
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

5 Precious Savior, still our refuge!
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Notes: Responsive refrain to reading of Psalm 41. Tone included for chanting. This psalm may be spoken or chanted with a single refrain or with a series of phrases from the hymn “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.” The final verse of doxology is a conclusion not only of this psalm, but, more significantly, also marks the end of Book 1 of the Psalter. The double amen should be the final word.
