The Lord’s voice in its majesty

The Lord’s voice in its majesty,


Is the very coming of the sun
It reaches into the fury, the waves
At the sea’s heart, the depths congealed.
As soon as the breath leaves man’s body
Man goes back to the dust he belongs to;
With that, all his designs will is only for the living.

7
Let there be joy on every tongue

Let there be joy on every tongue


For it is God who delver us for his name sake
And let our feet be ever on the path
He hast chosen, let us be righteous
For there is no stronghold that can
Compare with God
And we will sing a new hymn to the Lord our God
Who makes our minds thy dwelling place.
We will gather and join in blessing the Lord’s name.

The lord does not reject our prayers

The lord does not reject our prayers


And we should sing them in a strange land.
Deliver us, O Lord, in thy mercy

8
Short is man’s careless enjoyment of earthly goods
And now that night in her obscurity
Has veiled the colors of day
There shall come the dawn of hope for the innocent
For fatherhood itself is the Lord’s gift.
The fruitful womb is a reward that comes.
Our God, bring a clean heart to birth within us.

Give me still thy aid

Give me still thy aid;


Do not forsake me
Do not neglect me O, Lord,
Richly thou dost anoint my
Head with oil, well filled is my cup.
Into thy hands Lord, I command
My spirit, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Into thy hands Lord,

Into thy hands Lord,


I commend my spirit.
Incline unto my aid, O God
I pray to blessed Mary,
Ever a Virgin, to blessed Michael

O God, deliver me from my enemies,
Rescue me from their assaults,
I make this offering to the Lord of
The glory that befits his name.

Right reason forever is on man’s lips.
Joy, joy it is to praise your holy name.
Teach us, Lord, thy own path and
Turn thy back on the record of our sins.
May the almighty and merciful Lord give us pardon
And keep us ever thy own servant far from pride.
Blessed be the Lord, who schools us in his righteous ways.

The Lord, who made heaven and earth

Shall disappointment and shame be their, who lay a plots
against our life.
Shall we forever commit our life to the Lord, and trust in
him; he will prosper us.
So will we teach the wicked to follow thy paths.
Jealously the Lord watches over the life of the guiltless.
O Lord, hear our prayer and let our cry come unto thee.

trust in thee.

To the Lord your Savor.

Ask you then give him the word
Of the Lord as his reward.

But much in vanity
There is no shame in being righteous
But much in gluttony.
