Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:
O God, I rest in hope, for I know that you will raise me up.
O God, save me by your name;
with your strength uphold me.
O God, hear my prayer;
listen to the words of my mouth.
For the proud have risen against me;
the ruthless seek my life.
They have no regard for you.
But you, O God, come to my aid;
you sustain my life.
Let evil recoil upon my foes;
silence them by your truth.
My eyes have seen the downfall of my foes.
You have rescued me from my distress.
Gladly I will be devoted to you
and praise your name, for it is good.
Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
