23 A SONG OF GOD’S REIGN
Magnus es, Domine

Refrain: See what the Lord our God has done*
and exalt him in the sight of the living.
1 Blessèd be God, who lives for ever,*
whose reign endures throughout all ages.
2 Declare God’s praise before the nations,*
you who are the children of Israel.
3 For if our God has scattered you among them,*
there too has he shown you his greatness.
4 Exalt him in the sight of the living,*
because he is our God and our Father for ever.
5 Though God punishes you for your wickedness,*
mercy will be shown to you all.
6 God will gather you from every nation,*
from wherever you have been scattered.
7 When you turn to the Lord
   with all your heart and soul,*
God will hide his face from you no more.
8 See what the Lord has done for you*
and give thanks with a loud voice.
9 Praise the Lord of righteousness*
and exalt the King of the ages.
Glory . . . Tobit 13. 1-6
See what the Lord our God has done*
and exalt him in the sight of the living.
