R.        (see 11)  Lord, every nation on earth will adore you.
O God, with your judgment endow the king,
            and with your justice, the king’s son;
He shall govern your people with justice
            and your afflicted ones with judgment.
R.        Lord, every nation on earth will adore you.
The kings of Tarshish and the Isles shall offer gifts;

For he shall rescue the poor when he cries out,
            and the afflicted when he has no one to help him.
He shall have pity for the lowly and the poor;
            the lives of the poor he shall save.
R.        Lord, every nation on earth will adore you.

Gospel Mk 6:45-52

After the five thousand had eaten and were satisfied,
Jesus made his disciples get into the boat
and precede him to the other side toward Bethsaida,
while he dismissed the crowd. 
And when he had taken leave of them,
he went off to the mountain to pray. 
When it was evening,
the boat was far out on the sea and he was alone on shore. 
Then he saw that they were tossed about while rowing,
for the wind was against them. 
About the fourth watch of the night,
he came toward them walking on the sea. 
He meant to pass by them.  
But when they saw him walking on the sea,
they thought it was a ghost and cried out. 
They had all seen him and were terrified. 
But at once he spoke with them,
“Take courage, it is I, do not be afraid!” 
He got into the boat with them and the wind died down. 
They were completely astounded. 
They had not understood the incident of the loaves. 
On the contrary, their hearts were hardened.
