O Lord, open our lips;
And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Opening Sentance

Titiro ki te toka i haua mai ai koutou, ki te rua kohatu i keria mai ai koutou.. . . Ihaia 51:1
Look to the rock from which you were hewn, and to the quarry from which you were dug.. . . Isaiah 51:1

God ever reigns on high.
O come, let us worship.

Psalm 114

  1. When Israel came out of Egypt:
    the house of Jacob from among
    the people of an alien tongue,
  2. Judah became the Lord's temple:
    and Israel became God's kingdom.
  3. The sea fled at the sight of it:
    and Jordan turned back in its course.
  4. The mountains skipped like rams:
    and the hills like yearling sheep.
  5. Why was it that you fled O sea:
    and you Jordan that you turned back.
  6. you mountains that you skipped like rams:
    and you hills like yearling sheep?
  7. Tremble O earth at the presence of the Lord:
    at the presence of the God of Jacob,
  8. who turned the hard rock into a pool of water:
    and the flint-stone into a gushing spring.

Morning Prayer

God of the hungry,
make us hunger and thirst for the right,
till our thirst for justice has been satisfied
and hunger has gone from the earth.
