Te decet hymnus.

Thou, O God, art | praised in Sion;

* and unto thee shall the vow be per- | -formed in Jerusalem.

2 Thou that | hearest• the prayer,

* unto | thee shall all flesh come.

3 My misdeeds pre- | -vail against me:

* O be thou | merci•ful •unto• our sins.

4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and receivest | unto thee:

* he shall dwell in thy court, and shall be satisfied with the pleasures of thy house, even | of thy holy temple.

5 Thou shalt show us wonderful things in thy righteousness, O God of | our salvation;

* thou that art the hope of all the ends of the earth, and of them that remain | in the broad sea.

6 Who in his strength setteth | fast the mountains,

* and is | girded• about with power.

7 Who stilleth the raging | of the sea,

* and the noise of his waves, and the | madness of the peoples.

8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts of the earth shall be afraid | at thy tokens,

* thou that makest the outgoings of the morning and | evening• to praise thee.

9 Thou visitest the earth, and | blessest it;

* thou | makest• it very plenteous.

10 The river of God is | full of water:

* thou preparest their corn, for so thou pro- | -videst for the earth.

11 Thou waterest her furrows; thou sendest rain into the little | valleys• thereof;

* thou makest it soft with the drops of rain, and | blessest• the increase of it.

12 Thou crownest the year | with thy goodness;

* and thy | clouds drop fatness.

13 They shall drop upon the dwellings | of the wilderness;

* and the little hills shall re- | -joice on every side.

14 The folds shall be | full of sheep;

* the valleys also shall stand so thick with corn, that | they shall laugh and sing.

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.
