Oh sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done | marvelous things!*
  His right hand and his holy arm have worked salva- | tion for him.
The LORD has made known his sal- | vation;*
  he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the | nations.
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!
Sing praises to the LORD | with the lyre,*
  with the lyre and the sound of | melody!
With trumpets and the sound | of the horn*
  make a joyful noise before the | King, the LORD!
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.

Oh sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done | marvelous things!*
  His right hand and his holy arm have worked salva- | tion for him.


Collect of the Day

  O God, You make the minds of Your faithful to be of one will. 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.
