We will sing to You, O Lord, for You are highly exalted. You are our strength and our song, and You have become our salvation. You are our God and we will praise You and exalt You.

Who is like You, O Lord? Who is like You—majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders? In Your unfailing love You will lead the people You have redeemed. In Your strength You will guide them to Your holy dwelling.

You will bring them in and plant them in the mountain of Your inheritance—the place You made for Your dwelling, the sanctuary, O Lord, that Your hands established. And You will reign forever and ever.

We sing to You, O Lord, for You are highly exalted. You are our rock, our fortress and our deliverer, in whom we take refuge, our shield and the horn of our salvation. You are our stronghold, our refuge and our savior.

We call to You, Lord, who are worthy of praise. We glory in Your holy name. Let the hearts of all those who seek You, Lord, rejoice. We look to You, Lord, and Your strength, we seek Your face always. We remember the wonders You have done, Your miracles. For You are great, and most worthy to be praised. Glory and honor are in Your presence; strength and joy in Your dwelling-place.

We give thanks to You, Lord, for You are good; Your love endures forever. Praise be to You, O Lord God, from everlasting to everlasting.

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty, for everything that is in heaven and earth is Yours. Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom; You are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from You; You are the ruler of all things. In Your hands are strength and power to exalt and to give strength to all.

Now our God, we give You thanks, and praise Your glorious name. Everything comes from You, and we have given You only what comes from Your hand.

You are our praise, and You are our God, who performed for us those great and awesome wonders we saw with our own eyes. Blessed be Your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise.

You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship You.

Surely You are our salvation; we will trust, and not be afraid. You, O Lord, are our strength and our song; You have also become our salvation. We will give thanks to You, Lord, and call on Your name. We will make known among the nations what You have done, and proclaim that Your name is exalted.

We will sing to You, Lord, for You have done glorious things; let this be known to all the world. We will shout aloud and sing for joy, for You are great. We will raise our voices and shout for joy and acclaim Your majesty.

O Lord, You are our God. We will exalt You and praise Your name, for in perfect faithfulness You have done marvelous things, things planned long ago.

We will sing to You a new song, and Your praise from the ends of the earth. Praise be to Your name, God, for ever and ever; wisdom and power are Yours. We thank and praise You, O God of our fathers. You have given us wisdom and power.

We praise and exalt and glorify You, the King of heaven, because everything You do is right and all Your ways are just. We will sacrifice to You with a song of thanksgiving. We will make good what we have vowed.

Our souls glorify You, Lord. And our spirits rejoice in You, God our Savior. For You have been mindful of the humble state of Your servants. All generations will call us blessed. You who are mighty have done great things for us—holy is Your name. And Your mercy extends to those who fear You, from generation to generation.

You have performed mighty deeds with Your arm; You have scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. You have brought down rulers from their thrones, but You have lifted up the humble. You have filled the hungry with good things, but sent the rich away empty. Praise be to You, Lord God. You have come and redeemed Your people and raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of Your servant David.

We will declare Your name forever and sing Your praises. To You be the glory and dominion and power, now and forever. We give glory to You, and worship You, O God.

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come! You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things, and by Your will they were created and have their being. You were slain, and with Your blood You ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve You, and we will reign on the earth.

Worthy are You, Lord, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise. To You be praise and honor and glory and power, O Lamb of God, for ever and ever!

Salvation belongs to You, our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb. Praise and glory and wisdom, and thanks and honor and power and strength be to You, our God, for ever and ever. We give thanks to You, Lord God Almighty, the one who is and who was because You have taken Your great power and have begun to reign. Great and marvelous are Your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are Your ways, King of the ages.

Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and bring glory to Your name? For You alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before You, for Your righteous acts have been revealed. We will give thanks to You, Lord, because of Your righteousness, and will sing praise to Your name, O Lord most High.

O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth! You have set Your glory above the heavens. We will praise You with all our hearts; we will tell of all Your wonders. We will be glad and rejoice in You; we will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.

Sovereign Lord God, You made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and everything in them. For from You, and through You, and to You are all things. To You be the glory for ever!

Now to our King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.1
