Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Zion.
Unto thee shall the vow be performed in Jerusalem.
O thou that hearest prayer,
Unto thee shall all flesh come.

Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands,

Sing forth the honor of his name.
Make his praise glorious.

Bless ye God in the assemblies of the peoples,
Even the Lord, from the fountain of Israel.

Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty.
Just and true are all thy ways, O thou King of saints.

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised.

His righteousness endureth for ever.

The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion,
Slow to anger, and of great mercy.
The Lord is good to all,
And his tender mercies are over all his works.

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
From this time forth forever,

And blessed be his glorious name for ever.
Amen.
