We praise thee O God we acknowledge thee to be the Lord.
All the earth doth worship thee the Father ever lasting.
To thee all Angels cry aloud: the Heavens, and all the Powers there in;
To Thee Cherubim and Seraphim continually do cry,
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of Sabaoth;
Heaven and earth are full of the Majesty of thy glory.
The glorious company of Apostles praise thee.
The goodly fellowship of the Prophets praise thee.
The noble army of Martyrs praise thee.
The holy Church throughout the world doth acknowledge thee;
The Fzther of an infinite Majesty;
Thine adorable true and only Son;
Also the Holy Ghost the Comforter.
Thou art the King of Glory O Christ.
Thou art ever lasting Son of the Father.
When thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers.
Thou sittest at the right hand of God in the glory of the Father.
We believe that thou shalt come to be our Judge.
We therefore pray thee help thy servants whom thou hast redeemed with thy precious blood.
Make them to be numbered with thy Saints in glory ever lasting.
O Lord save thy people and bless thine heritage.
Goern them and lift them up forever.
Day be day we magnify thee;
And we worship thy Name ever world without end.
Vouchsafe O Lord to keep us this day without sin.
O Lord have mercy upon us, have mercy upon us.
O Lord let thy mercy be upon us as our trust is in thee.
O Lord in thee have I trusted; let me never be confounded.

Praise the LORD O my soul and all that is within me praise his holy Name.
Praise the LORD O my soul and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thy sin and healeth all thine infirmities;
Who saveth thy life from destruction and crowneth thee with mercy and loving kindness.
O praise the LORD ye angels of his, ye that excel in strength, ye that fulfil his commandment and hearken unto the voice of his word.
O praise the LORD, all ye hosts, ye servants of his that do his pleasure.
O speak good of the LORD, all ye works of his in all places of his dominion; praise thou the LORD O my soul.
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.
