Te decet hymnus
Te decet hymnus

THOU, O God, art praised in Sion : and unto thee shall the vow be performed in Jerusalem.
2 Thou that hearest the prayer : unto thee shall all flesh come.
3 My misdeeds prevail against me : O be thou merciful unto our sins.
4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and receivest unto thee : he shall dwell in thy court, and shall be satisfied with the pleasures of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
5 Thou shalt shew us wonderful things in thy righteousness, O God of our salvation : thou that art the hope of all the ends of the earth, and of them that remain in the broad sea.
6 Who in his strength setteth fast the mountains : and is girded about with power.
7 Who stilleth the raging of the sea : and the noise of his waves, and the madness of the people.
8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts of the earth shall be afraid at thy tokens : thou that makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to praise thee.
9 Thou visitest the earth, and blessest it : thou makest it very plenteous.
10 The river of God is full of water : thou preparest their corn, for so thou providest for the earth.
11 Thou waterest her furrows, thou sendest rain into the little valleys thereof : thou makest it soft with the drops of rain, and blessest the increase of it.
12 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness : and thy clouds drop fatness.
13 They shall drop upon the dwellings of the wilderness : and the little hills shall rejoice on every side.
14 The folds shall be full of sheep : the valleys also shall stand so thick with corn, that they shall laugh and sing.
