Sing to the LORD a new song, Alle- | luia,*

He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of | Israel.*
  All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation | of our God.
Make a joyful noise to the LORD, | all the earth;*
  break forth into joyous song and sing | praises!
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.

Sing to the LORD a new song, Alle- | luia,*
  for he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations. Alle- | luia.

Grant that we may love what You have commanded and desire what You promise, that among the many changes of this world our hearts may be fixed where true joys are found; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
