Te decet hymnus
1 You, O God, are to be praised in Zion,*
and unto you shall vows be performed in Jerusalem.
2 You who hear our prayer,*
unto you shall all flesh come.
3 My misdeeds prevail against me;*
O be merciful and blot out our sins.
4 Blessed is the man whom you choose and receive unto yourself;*
he shall dwell in your courts, and shall be satisfied with the pleasures of your house, even of your holy temple.
5 You shall show us wonderful things in your righteousness, O God of our salvation,*
for you are the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the isles that are far away.
6 You in your strength set firm the mountains,*
and are girded about with power.
7 You still the raging of the seas,*
the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the peoples.
8 Those who dwell in the uttermost parts of the earth shall be in fear of your wonders;*
you make the morning and evening to shout with joy.
9 You visit the earth and bless it;*
you make it very plenteous.
10 The river of God is full of water;*
you prepare the grain, for so you provide for the earth.
11 You water its furrows; you send rain into the little valleys;*
you make it soft with the drops of rain and bless the increase of it.
12 You crown the year with your goodness,*
and your paths overflow with plenty.
13 The fields of the wilderness are rich in pasture,*
and the little hills rejoice on every side.
14 The folds shall be full of sheep;*
the valleys also shall stand so thick with grain that they shall laugh and sing.
