Emendemus in melius is strictly a Responsory for Ash Wednesday, but the text:
Let us correct our faults which we have committed in ignorance, let us not be taken unawares by the day of our death, looking in vain for leisure to repent.
Hear us, O Lord, and show us your mercy, for we have sinned against you.
Help us, O God our Saviour; for the sake of your name, O Lord, set us free.
conforms nicely with our Lord’s call to repentance in today’s Gospel.
Today’s Communion antiphon:
The Lord will conceal you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will trust.
was from Ps 90(91), so we sang Michael Joncas’s much-loved setting of the same psalm, in my arrangement for four voices.
