Hymn Tune Introits, 15th and 16th Sundays in Ordinary Time

These are the Entrance Antiphons from the Roman Missal for the next two Sundays, rearranged into the form of a hymn verse in Long Meter (8.8.8.8), for the benefit of congregations who might not yet be able to chant.

As for me, in justice I shall behold your face; I shall be filled with the vision of your glory.

And I, I shall behold Your face,
In justice see You, and in right.
I shall be filled with light and grace:
The vision of Your glory bright.

See, I have God for my help. The Lord sustains my soul. I will sacrifice to you with willing heart, and praise your name, O Lord, for it is good.

The Lord my God sustains my soul.
God is my help; behold and see.
I praise Your name, for it is good,
And sacrifice, Lord, willingly.
