Words

Bring unto the LORD, O ye mighty; bring young rams unto the LORD * ascribe unto the LORD worship and strength.
2 Give the LORD the honour due unto his Name; * worship the LORD with holy worship.
3 It is the LORD that commandeth the waters; * it is the glorious God that maketh the thunder.
4 It is the LORD that ruleth the sea; the voice of the LORD is mighty in operation; * the voice of the LORD is a glorious voice.
5 The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedar-trees; * yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Libanus.
6 He maketh them also to skip like a calf; * Libanus also, and Sirion, like a young unicorn.
7 The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire; the voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; * yea, the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Cades.
8 The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to bring forth young, and discovereth the thick bushes: * in his temple doth every thing speak of his honour.
9 The LORD sitteth above the water-flood, * and the LORD remaineth a King for ever.
10 The LORD shall give strength unto his people; * the LORD shall give his people the blessing of peace.
Gloria
