Introit                                                                                                                                                  Is. 61:10; antiphon: Ps. 146:2


I will praise the LORD as long | as I live;*
  I will sing praises to my God while I have my | being.
I will greatly rejoice | in the LORD;*
  my soul shall exult | in my God,
for he has clothed me with the garments of sal- | vation;*
  he has covered me with the robe of | righteousness,
as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful | headdress,*
  and as a bride adorns herself | with her jewels.
Glory be to the Father and | to the Son*
  and to the Holy | Spirit;
as it was in the be- | ginning,*
  is now, and will be forever. | Amen.

I will praise the LORD as long | as I live;*
  I will sing praises to my God while I have my | being.
