1 We praise Thee, O God:
we acknowledge Thee to be the Lord.

2 All the earth doth worship Thee:
the Father everlasting.

3 To Thee all angels cry aloud,
the Heavens, and all the Powers therein;

4 To Thee Cherubim and Seraphim:
continually do cry,

5 Holy, Holy, Holy:
Lord God of Sabaoth;

6 Heaven and earth are full of the Majesty:
of Thy glory.

7 The glorious company of the Apostles:
praise Thee.

8 The goodly fellowship of the Prophets:
praise Thee.

9 The noble army of Martyrs:
praise Thee.

10 The holy Church throughout all the world:
doth acknowledge Thee;

11 The Father
of an infinite Majesty;

12 Thine adorable, true:
and only Son;

13 Also the Holy Ghost:
the Comforter.

14 Thou art the King of Glory:
O Christ.

15 Thou art the everlasting Son:
of the Father.

16 When Thou tookest upon Thee to deliver man:
Thou didst humble Thyself to be born of a Virgin.

17 When Thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death:
Thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers.

18 Thou sittest at the right hand of God:
in the glory of the Father.

19 We believe that Thou shalt come:
to be our Judge.

20 We therefore pray Thee, help Thy servants:
whom Thou hast redeem├Ęd with Thy precious blood.

21 Make them to be numbered with Thy Saints:
in glory everlasting.

22 O Lord, save Thy people:
and bless Thine heritage.

23 Govern them:
and lift them up forever.

24 Day by day:
we magnify Thee;

25 And we worship Thy Name:
ever, world without end.

26 Vouchsafe, O Lord:
to keep us this day without sin.

27 O Lord, have mercy upon us:
have mercy upon us.

28 O Lord, let Thy mercy be upon us:
as our trust is in Thee.

29 O Lord, in Thee have I trusted:
let me never be confounded.
