30 A SONG IN PRAISE OF THE WORKS OF GOD
In voce dicit

Refrain: Ascribe majesty to the name of the Most High;*
let all creation give thanks with praise.
1 Listen to me, my faithful children,*
and blossom like a rose
   growing by a stream of water.
2 Send out fragrance like incense
   and sing a hymn of praise,*
bless our God for all creation.
3 Ascribe majesty to the name of the Most High,*
give thanks with praise, with songs on your lips
   and with harps.
4 All your works are good, O God,*
and whatever you command will be done.
Glory . . . Ecclesiasticus 39. 13-16
Ascribe majesty to the name of the Most High;*
let all creation give thanks with praise.
