PRAISE the Lord, ye servants : O praise the Name of the Lord.
2 Blessed be the Name of the Lord : from this time forth for evermore.
3 The Lord’s Name is praised : from the rising up of the sun unto the going down of the same.
4 The Lord is high above all heathen : and his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like unto the Lord our God, that hath his dwelling so high : and yet humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven and earth?
6 He taketh up the simple out of the dust : and lifteth the poor out of the mire;
7 That he may set him with the princes : even with the princes of his people.
8 He maketh the barren woman to keep house : and to be a joyful mother of children.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.

In exitu Israel
In exitu Israel

WHEN Israel came out of Egypt : and the house of Jacob from among the strange people,
2 Judah was his sanctuary : and Israel his dominion.
3 The sea saw that, and fled : Jordan was driven back.
4 The mountains skipped like rams : and the little hills like young sheep.
5 What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest : and thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams : and ye little hills, like young sheep?
7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord : at the presence of the God of Jacob;
8 Who turned the hard rock into a standing water : and the flint-stone into a springing well.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
