3 A SONG OF DAVID
Benedictus es, Domine

Refrain: Splendour and majesty are yours, O God;*
you are exalted as head over all.
1 Blessèd are you, God of Israel, for ever and ever,*
for yours is the greatness, the power,
   the glory, the splendour and the majesty.
2 Everything in heaven and on earth is yours;*
yours is the kingdom, O Lord,
   and you are exalted as head over all.
3 True wealth and honour come from you*
and you rule over all.
4 In your hand are power and might;*
yours it is to give power and strength to all.
5 And now we give you thanks, our God,*
and praise your glorious name.
6 For all things come from you,*
and of your own have we given you.
Glory . . . 1 Chronicles 29. 10-14
Splendour and majesty are yours, O God;*
you are exalted as head over all.
