1 Praise the Lord, all you nations! Extol him, all you peoples! 2 For great is his steadfast love towards us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures for ever. Praise the Lord!
Almighty and everlasting God,
whom we adore with all the angelic host,
may we always rejoice in your heavenly protection
and serve you faithfully in this present life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
save us from the time of trial,
and deliver us from evil.
you see that we have no power of ourselves
to help ourselves;
keep us both outwardly in our bodies
and inwardly in our souls,
that we may be defended from all adversities
which may happen to the body,
and from all evil thoughts
which may assault and hurt the soul.
