    Folks, I'm in a bit of a time crunch and I need a setting of Psalm 90 for St. Joseph the Worker this Thursday. I can do it myself, but we've been under tornado warnings for two days now, so I've been less than productive. I've looked in all the usual places without luck. Can anyone help? It is the text below...thank you!

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM Ps 90: 2,3-4,12-13,14 and 16

    R. Lord, give success to the work of our hands.
    Before the mountains were begotten
    and the earth and the world were brought forth,
    from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
    R. Lord, give success to the work of our hands.
    You turn man back to dust,
    saying, "Return, O children of men."
    For a thousand years in your sight
    are as yesterday, now that it is past,
    or as a watch of the night.
    R. Lord, give success to the work of our hands.
    Teach us to number our days aright,
    that we may gain wisdom of heart.
    Return, O LORD! How long?
    Have pity on your servants!
    R. Lord, give success to the work of our hands.
    Fill us at daybreak with your kindness
    that we may shout for joy and gladness all our days.
    Let your work be seen by your servants,
    and your glory by their children.
    R. Lord, give success to the work of our hands.

    Here is a setting we have. The psalm itself has quite a range and the translation is not the same, but what we often do is use the antiphon and set the lectionary text to a compatible Meinrad tone: in this case, Mode V in 3 flats.

    It's the same Responsorial Psalm as for Labor Day. There are several versions available from GIA set to the Gelineau tone. Should also be in Ritual Song and possibly Worship III/IV. In various translations anyways.
