I give you thanks with all
before the gods I sing your praise;
I bow down before your holy temple
And give thanks to your name
For your steadfast love and your faithfulness;
For exalted above all are your name and your word.
On the day I called you
You increased the strength of my soul
All of earth’s rulers
shall praise you
For they heard the words of your mouth;
They shall sing of your ways
For great is your glory, O God.
Though you are high, you look on the lowly.
You preserve my life;
You stretch out you had and save me.
You will fulfill your purpose for me;
Your steadfast love endures forever. Glory to the Father…
ANTIPHON: “Who can count God’s mercies toward us. Our hearts ought
with love and gratitude.”
Blessed are those who walk hand in hand with goodness,
Who stand beside virtue, who sit in the seat to truth;
For their delight is in the Spirit of Love,
And in Love’s heart they dwell day and night.
They are like trees planed by streams of water,
That yield fruit in due season,
And their leaves flourish;
An in all that they do, they give life.
Glory to the Father…
