28 A SONG OF THE REDEEMING SPIRIT
Hæc populum justum

Refrain: The righteous shall sing hymns*
to your holy name, O God.
1 A holy people and a blameless race*
Wisdom delivered from a nation of oppressors.
2 She entered a soul of a servant of God*
and withstood dread rulers with wonders and signs.
3 She gave to holy people the reward of their labours;*
she guided them along a marvellous way.
4 She became a shelter to them by day*
and a starry flame through the night.
5 She brought them over the Sea of Reeds*
and led them through deep waters.
6 The righteous sang hymns to your holy name, O God,*
and praised with one accord your defending hand.
7 For Wisdom opened the mouths of those who were mute*
and made the tongues of infants speak clearly.
Glory . . . Wisdom 10. 15-21
The righteous shall sing hymns*
to your holy name, O God.
