Psalm 40: Here I Am, Lord. Composed by Michel Guimont. Text is Psalm 40 from the Grail, copyright 2010, Conception Abbey and GIA Publications. Sung at St. Mary's Church in St. Paul on 1/14/2017 by Kristin and Richard. Mary Joy on keyboard.

R. Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.

I waited, I waited for the LORD,
     and he stooped down to me;
he heard my cry.
He put a new song into my mouth,
praise of our God.

You delight not in sacrifice and offerings,
     but in an open ear.
You do not ask for holocaust and victim.
     Then I said, “See, I have come.”

In the scroll of the book it stands written of me:
     “I delight to do your will, O my God;
     your instruction lies deep within me.”

Your justice I have proclaimed
     in the great assembly.
My lips I have not sealed;
     you know it, O LORD.
