Magnus Dominus.

Great is the Lord, and highly | to be praised

* in the city of our God, even up- | -on his holy hill.

2 The hill of Sion is a fair place, and the joy of the | whole earth;

* upon the north side lieth the city of the great King: God is well known in her palaces | as a sure refuge.

3 For lo, the kings | of the earth

* were gathered, and | gone by together.

4 They marvelled to | see such things;

* they were astonished, and | sudden•ly cast down.

5 Fear came there upon | them; and sorrow,

* as upon a | woman in her travail.

6 Thou dost break the ships | of the sea

* through | — the east-wind.

7 Like as we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city | of our God;

* God up- | -holdeth• the same for ever.

8 We wait for thy loving- | kindness•, O God,

* in the | midst of thy temple.

9 O God, according to thy Name, so is thy praise unto the | world's end;

* thy right | hand is full of righteousness.

10 Let the mount Sion rejoice, and the daughters of | Judah• be glad,

* be- | -cause of thy judgments.

11 Walk about Sion, and go | round about her;

* and | tell the •towers• thereof.

12 Mark well her bulwarks, con- | -sider• her palaces,

* that ye may tell | them that come after.

13 For this God is our God for | ever• and ever:

* he shall be our | guide unto death.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
