29 A SONG OF GOD’S SERVANTS
Congrega omnes

Refrain: Hear the prayers of your servants,*
those you have named as your own.
1 Gather all the tribes of Jacob;*
give them their inheritance,
   as at the beginning.
2 Have mercy on the people called by your name, O God,*
on those you have named as your first-born.
3 Have pity on the city of your sanctuary,*
Jerusalem, the place of your dwelling.
4 Fill it with your majesty,*
and your people with your glory.
5 Bear witness to those you created in the beginning*
and fulfil the prophecies spoken in your name.
6 Reward those who wait for you*
and let your prophets be found worthy of trust.
7 Hear the prayers of your servants,*
that all who are on the earth will know
   that you are the God of the ages.
Glory . . . Ecclesiasticus 36. 13-22
Hear the prayers of your servants,*
those you have named as your own.
