PM: Alleluia Wednesdays--Feast Of The Baptism Of The Lord

As did the Gradual, so also does the Alleluia has two choices:
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. The Lord God is our light. 
Ps. 117:26
The second half of the Sanctus proclaims the arrival of Jesus. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, the Word made Flesh, now comes to be anointed.
I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him. 
Ps. 88:21
This echoes the words heard from the cloud, "This is my beloved Son; listen to Him." The true servant of God has been appointed and anointed.
