THE LORD is King, and hath put on glorious apparel; * the LORD hath put on his apparel, and girded himself with strength.
He hath made the round world so sure, * that it cannot be moved.
Ever since the world began, hath thy seat been prepared: * thou art from everlasting.
The floods are risen, O LORD, the floods have lift up their voice; * the floods lift up their waves.
The waves of the sea are mighty, and rage horribly; * but yet the LORD, who dwelleth on high, is mightier.
Thy testimonies, O LORD, are very sure: * holiness becometh thine house for ever.
THE LORD is King, be the people never so impatient; * he sitteth between the Cherubim, be the earth never so unquiet.
The LORD is great in Sion, * and high above all people.
They shall give thanks unto thy Name, * which is great, wonderful, and holy.
The King's power loveth judgment; thou hast prepared equity, * thou hast executed judgment and righteousness in Jacob.
O magnify the LORD our God, and fall down before his footstool; * for he is holy.
Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among such as call upon his Name: * these called upon the LORD, and he heard them.
He spake unto them out of the cloudy pillar; * for they kept his testimonies, and the law that he gave them.
Thou heardest them, O LORD our God; * thou forgavest them, O God, though thou didst punish their wicked doings.
O magnify the LORD our God, and worship him upon his holy hill; * for the LORD our God is holy.
Blessed art thou, O Lord God of our fathers: and to be praised and exalted above all for ever. And blessed is thy glorious and holy name: and to be praised and exalted above all for ever. Blessed art thou in the temple of thine holy glory: and to be praised and glorified above all for ever. Blessed art thou that beholdest the depths, and sittest upon the cherubims: and to be praised and exalted above all for ever. Blessed art thou on the glorious throne of thy kingdom: and to be praised and glorified above all for ever. Blessed art thou in the firmament of heaven: and above ail to be praised and glorified for ever. O all ye works of the Lord, bless ye the Lord : praise and exalt him above all for ever, O ye heavens, bless ye the Lord : praise and exalt him above all for ever. O ye angels of the Lord, bless ye the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever.
And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
ALMIGHTY God, Lord of heaven and earth; We beseech thee to pour forth thy blessing upon this land, and to give us a fruitful season; that we, constantly receiving thy bounty, may evermore give thanks unto thee in thy holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
O LORD, from whom all good things do come; Grant to us thy humble servants, that by thy holy inspiration we may think those things which are good, and by thy merciful guiding may perform the same; through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
