Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 89:1-18 Misericordias Domini

My song shall be always of the loving-kindness of the Lord;
with my mouth will I ever be showing thy truth from one generation to another.

For I have said, Mercy shall be set up for ever;
thy truth shalt thou stablish in the heavens.

I have made a covenant with my chosen;
I have sworn unto David my servant, Thy seed will I stablish for ever, and set up thy throne from one generation to another.

O Lord, the very heavens shall praise thy wondrous works, and thy truth in the congregation of the saints.

For who is he among the clouds, that shall be compared unto the Lord? And what is he among the gods, that shall be like unto the Lord? God is very greatly to be feared in the council of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are round about him.

O Lord God of hosts, who is like unto thee? Thy truth, most mighty Lord, is on every side.

Thou rulest the raging of the sea;
thou stillest the waves thereof when they arise.

Thou hast subdued Egypt, and destroyed it;
thou hast scattered thine enemies abroad with thy mighty arm.

The heavens are thine.

The earth also is thine;
thou hast laid the foundation of the round world, and all that therein is.

Thou hast made the north and the south;
Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy Name.

Thou hast a mighty arm;
strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.

Righteousness and equity are the habitation of thy seat;
mercy and truth shall go before thy face.

Blessed is the people, O Lord, that can rejoice in thee;
they shall walk in the light of thy countenance.

Their delight shall be daily in thy Name;
and in thy righteousness shall they make their boast.

For thou art the glory of their strength, and in thy lovingkindness thou shalt lift up our horns.

For the Lord is our defence;
the Holy One of Israel is our King.
