Psalm 141 (Incense Psalm) (Antiphonal)

Hymn on One License

I have called to you, LORD

Published in 11 hymnals

Representative Text

My prayers rise like incense,
my hands like an evening off'ring.

1 I have called to you, LORD; hasten to help me!
Hear my voice when I cry to you.
Let my prayer be accepted as incense before you,
the raising of my hands like an evening oblation. [Antiphon]

2 Set, O LORD, a guard on my mouth;
keep watch at the door of my lips!
Do not turn my heart to things that are evil,
to wicked deeds with those who are sinnners. [Antiphon]

3 Never allow me to share in their feasting.
If a good man strikes me it is kindness;
but let the oil of the wicked not anoint my head.
Let my prayer be ever against their malice. [Antiphon]

4 To you my eyes are turned, O LORD, my Lord.
In you I take refuge; spare my soul!
From the trap they have laid for me, keep me safe;
keep me from the snares of those who do evil. [Antiphon]

5 Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and will be for ever. Amen. [Antiphon]
