O praise the Lord in the holy place:
praise our God in the mighty heavens.
- Praise the Lord for many acts of power:
praise our God for greatness beyond measure.
- Praise the Lord with the sound of the trumpet:
praise our God upon the lute and harp.
- Praise the Lord with timbrels and dancing:
praise our God upon the strings and pipe.
- Praise the Lord with clash of cymbals:
praise our God upon resounding cymbals.
- Let everything that has breath praise the Lord:
whakamoemititia a Ihowa / O Praise the Lord.
God of harmony and of every beautiful sound,
on this Cecilia’s Day, we praise you
for all who make music to delight us as we worship you;
our song will be of martyrdom, of purity and courage;
our song will be of forgiveness and hope.
Thank Him for 3 things that happened today (Good or Not!)
your kingdom come
on earth as in heaven.
God, you know better than we
the temptations that will bring us down.
Grant that our love for you may protect us
from all foolish and corrupting desire.
May Christ the King give us his blessing of peace.
