1 Sing to the Lord a new song : sing to the Lord, all the earth.

2 Sing to the Lord and bless his name : tell out his salvation from day to day.

3 Declare his glory among the nations : and his wonders among all peoples.

4 For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised : he is more to be feared than all gods.

5 For all the gods of the nations are but idols : it is the Lord who made the heavens.

6 Honour and majesty are before him : power and splendour are in his sanctuary.

7 Ascribe to the Lord, you families of the peoples : ascribe to the Lord honour and strength.

8 Ascribe to the Lord the honour due to his name : bring offerings and come into his courts.

9 O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness : let the whole earth tremble before him

Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.

Collect for the Day

O God, forasmuch as without you we are not able to please you; mercifully grant that your Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
