We will praise you, O LORD, with all our heart; before the "gods" we will sing your praise.
As your holy temple we will bow down and will praise your name for your love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.
When we called, you answered us; you make us bold and stouthearted.
May all the kings of the earth praise you, O LORD, when they hear the words of your mouth.
May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for you glory O LORD is great.
Though you are on high, you look upon the lowly, but the proud you know from afar.
Though we walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve our life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of our foes, with your right hand you save us.
The LORD will fulfill his purpose for us; your love, O LORD, endures forever—You will not abandon the works of your hands.
And so, Father of Love, of Joy, of Holiness, we come to you now in the great name of our Lord and redeemer Jesus Christ, and in the Power of your Holy Spirit. And Amen!
