Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:
I will bless the Holy One; let all that is within me sing praise.
Psalm 119 (Gimel)
Bless me, O God, that I might live
and obey your word.
Open my eyes
that I may see the wonders of your law.
I am a pilgrim on the earth;
show me your commands.
I am consumed with longing for your decrees.
You rebuked the proud
who turned from your commands.
Free me from scorn and contempt,
for I observe your will.
Though the evil plot against me,
I keep your law in mind.
Your will is my delight;
your precepts are my counselors.
Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
