Psalm 145

  1. I will extol you O God my king:
    I will bless your name forever and ever.
  2. Every day will I give thanks to you:
    and praise your name for ever and ever.
  3. You are great O Lord, and worthy of all praise:
    there are no bounds to your greatness.
  4. One generation shall praise your works to another:
    and proclaim your mighty acts.
  5. I will speak of the glorious splendour of your majesty;
    and of all your marvellous works.
  6. People shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds:
    and I too will proclaim your greatness.
  7. They shall pour out the story of your abundant kindness:
    and joyfully sing of your righteousness.
  8. The Lord is gracious and full of compassion:
    slow to anger and abounding in love.
  9. You Lord are good to all of us:
    and your mercy rests upon all your creatures.
  10. All your creation shall praise you O Lord:
    and your servants will bless your name.
  1. They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom:
    and their talk shall be of your power,
  2. so that all may know of your mighty deeds:
    and the glorious splendour of your kingdom.
  3. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom:
    and your dominion endures from age to age.
  4. The Lord upholds those who stumble:
    and raises up those who are down.
  5. The eyes of all look to you O Lord:
    and you give them their food in due season.
  6. You open wide your hand:
    and give what they desire to all things living.
  7. You Lord are righteous in all your ways:
    and loving in all your deeds.
  8. You Lord are near to all who call to you:
    who call to you in singleness of heart.
  9. You fulfil the desire of those who revere you:
    you hear their cry and you save them.
  10. You protect all who love you:
    but the wicked you will destroy.
  11. My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord:
    let everyone bless God's holy name forever and ever.

Collect

Almighty God,
from whom all thoughts of truth and peace proceed:
kindle, we pray, in every heart,
the true love of peace,
and guide with your pure and peaceable wisdom
those who take counsel for the nations of the earth;
that in tranquillity your Kingdom may go forward
till the earth is filled with the knowledge of your love;
through Jesus Christ our Lord . . .
Amen.
