Classical Ode to St Cecilia
God of beauty and harmony,
the heavens proclaim your glory,
and in adoration the peoples sing:
“Let heaven and earth rejoice in tuneful accord.”
May we with heart, mind and voice
honour you in worship and in witness
to the praise of your glorious name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
your will be done
on earth as in heaven.
May our Lord Jesus Christ himself,
and God our Father,
who loved us and graciously gave us
unfailing encouragement and good hope,
comfort our hearts
and establish them
in every good word and deed.
May Christ the King give us his blessing of peace.
Let us bless the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
