Responsorial Psalm
117: 1, 8-9, 21-23, 26, 28, 29.

O gie thanks untill the Lord, for he is guid;
becaus his mercie induurs forevir.
It is better til trust in the Lord
nor til pit confydedence in man.
It is better til trust in the Lord
nor til pit confydedence in princes.

I wull prayse thee; for thou hest heærd me,
an' hest becum my salvatione.
The stane whilk the buuldirs despæiset
hæs becum the heæd stane o' the kornir.
This is the Lord's doin';
it is mervellous in our eyne.

Blisset be he that cums
in the næme o' the Lord;
we hae blisset yow owt o' the hous o' the Lord.
Thou art my God, an' I wull prayse thee;
thou art my God, I wull eksalt thee.
O gie thanks untill the Lord, for he is guid;
for his mercie induurs forevir.

[From Psalm 118, The Book of Psalms in Lowland Scots Henry Scott Riddell (1857) here]

Second reading
1 John 3: 1-2

Se ye quhat manir charitee the fadir gaue to vs,
that we be namet the sonnis of God,
and be his sonnis.
For this thing the warld knew nocht vs,
for it knew nocht him.
Maast dere brethir, now we ar the sonnis of God,
and yit it apperit nocht, quhat we salbe.
We wate, that quhen he sal appere,
we salbe like him,
for we sal se him as he is.

[From The New Testament in Scots Murdoch Nisbet [c.1520] (1905) vol 3 here]

Gospel reading
John 10: 11-18

[Jesus said:]

"I am a gude schepehird;
a gude schepehird gevis his lif for his schepe.
Bot ane hyret hyne, and that is nocht the schepehird,
quhais ar nocht the schepe his awn,
seis a wolf cummand, and he levis the schepe, and fleis;
and the wolf ravisis and disparpilis the schepe.
And the hyret hyne fleis,
for he is ane hyret hyne,
and it pertenis nocht to him of the schepe.
I am a gude schephird,
and I knaw my schepe,
and my schepe knawis me.
As the fader has knawn me,
I knaw the fadere;
and I put my lif for my schepe.
I haue vthir schepe,
that ar nocht of this fald,
and it behuvis me to bring thame togiddire,
and thai sal here my voce;
and it salbe made aa fald and aa schephird.
Tharfor the fader luvis me,
for I put my lif,
that eftsone I tak it.
Na man takis it fra me,
bot I put it of my self.
I haue powere to put it,
and I haue powere to tak it agane.
This comande I haue takin of my fadere."

[From The New Testament in Scots Murdoch Nisbet [c.1520] (1903) vol 2 here]
