24 A SONG OF GOD’S MERCY
Hymnum cantemus

Refrain: You sent forth your Spirit, O God,*
and you continue to show mercy to all.
1 I will sing a new song to my God,*
for you are great and glorious,
   truly strong and invincible.
2 May your whole creation serve you,*
for you spoke and all things came to be.
3 You sent forth your Spirit and they were formed,*
for no one can resist your voice.
4 Mountains and seas are stirred to their depths;*
at your presence rocks shall melt like wax.
5 But to those who fear you,*
you continue to show mercy.
6 No sacrifice, however fragrant, can please you,*
but whoever fears the Lord
   shall stand in your sight for ever.
Glory . . . Judith 16. 13-16
You sent forth your Spirit, O God,*
and you continue to show mercy to all.
