Rise


Allison Mack:
"Legends of Tomorrow"

Rise to Shine
輝くように立ち上がる
Kagayaku yō ni tachiagaru
ps68

Rise to shine.
See what you can find.

Let your light show.
Show it wherever you go.

Let the fear of love be scattered.
Let the love of hate be shattered.

Let those who hate you learn to earn your respect.
Punish only to correct.

Let their anger be dispersed as smoke is driven away.
The smoke will be blown until they learn from dismay.

The impulse to destroy will drop away as wax melts before the flame.
Drop the drips until the plate is waxed from blame.

Let morality be kind.
Justice must remain blind
to status to fight crime.

Let those who are moral exult in goodness.
Passion for excellence drives us toward what we should get.

Let us be jubilant with the joy of charity.
Charity clears the mind for clarity.

Sing with confidence.
The notes reward brilliance with resilience.

Dance with presence.
Movement reveals your essence.

Lift your heart to the light on high.
Spirit rides on the clouds driven by the wind's might.

Let your mind rejoice with a voice for exultation.
Jubilation is the essential sensation for celebration.

Your sight will ring with delight.
Delight transcends the compulsion to take flight or fight.

Love is the motive for providence.
It is the mark of eternal hardiness.

Be the provider for orphans; the protector of widows.
Don't kill for the thrill of saving the homeless from skid row.

Kindness is our natural habitation.
It builds strength in social relations.

The homeless will be given shelter
from the helter skelter and the swelter.

Political prisoners will be released.
Indefinite detention must cease.

Prosperity will share abundance with charity.
Too much success is not good for personal clarity.

Those who live for cruelty or violence will stand corrected
until they have detected the disparity caused by fiscal neglect.

When light shined for your people
we left the church steeple.
We marched for freedom along the highway
until justice saw the light of day.

The earth quaked.
The buildings shaked.

The heavens poured down rain.
We were released from our pain.
The precious incense of your presence
was felt with each step towards your essence.

The moonlit night was fit for the feeling that this was right
for the seat of light in judgment against blight.

You rained in abundance.
Thunder was your utterance.

The shower resounded with power that reached abroad.
The hour told our power to deliver us from fraud.

Lightning cracked. Thunder rumbled.
Our wet clothes were humbled.

You restored our heritage when it languished.
They had told us we were lucky we hadn't been banished.

Your assembly found a dwelling in peace.
The goodness tasted so sweet.

Providence reached out. It knocked on the door
for the rich, middle and poor.

Shine bright you nations of the earth.
The world will see your worth.

Sing with nobility for independence and security.
Test for the best with practical maturity.

Live with local and international exchange.
Prepare for the strange range of the stage at your age.

Live with the power that comes from the strength of character.
The force will be with you for sure.

Your life is blessed with love.
Your heart has the wings of a dove.

Love will live within you.
Truth will be true.

Let your light shine.
It will be yours and mine.


68 Exsurgat Deus

1 Let God arise, and let his enemies be scattered; *
let those who hate him flee before him.

2 Let them vanish like smoke when the wind drives it away; *
as the wax melts at the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

3 But let the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; *
let them also be merry and joyful.

4 Sing to God, sing praises to his Name;
exalt him who rides upon the heavens; *

Yahweh is his Name, rejoice before him!

5 Father of orphans, defender of widows, *
God in his holy habitation!

6 God gives the solitary a home and brings forth prisoners into freedom; *
but the rebels shall live in dry places.

7 O God, when you went forth before your people, *
when you marched through the wilderness,

8 The earth shook, and the skies poured down rain,
at the presence of God, the God of Sinai, *

at the presence of God, the God of Israel.

9 You sent a gracious rain, O God, upon your inheritance; *
you refreshed the land when it was weary.

10 Your people found their home in it; *
in your goodness, O God, you have made provision for the poor.

11 The Lord gave the word; *
great was the company of women who bore the tidings:

12 "Kings with their armies are fleeing away; *
the women at home are dividing the spoils."

13 Though you lingered among the sheepfolds, *
you shall be like a dove whose wings are covered with silver,

whose feathers are like green gold.

14 When the Almighty scattered kings, *
it was like snow falling in Zalmon.

15 O mighty mountain, O hill of Bashan! *
O rugged mountain, O hill of Bashan!

16 Why do you look with envy, O rugged mountain,
at the hill which God chose for his resting place? *

truly, the Lord will dwell there for ever.

17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand,
even thousands of thousands; *

the Lord comes in holiness from Sinai.

18 You have gone up on high and led captivity captive;
you have received gifts even from your enemies, *

that the Lord God might dwell among them.

19 Blessed be the Lord day by day, *
the God of our salvation, who bears our burdens.

20 He is our God, the God of our salvation; *
God is the Lord, by whom we escape death.

21 God shall crush the heads of his enemies, *
and the hairy scalp of those who go on still in their wickedness.

22 The Lord has said, "I will bring them back from Bashan; *
I will bring them back from the depths of the sea;

23 That your foot may be dipped in blood, *
the tongues of your dogs in the blood of your enemies."

24 They see your procession, O God, *
your procession into the sanctuary, my God and my King.

25 The singers go before, musicians follow after, *
in the midst of maidens playing upon the hand-drums.

26 Bless God in the congregation; *
bless the Lord, you that are of the fountain of Israel.

27 There is Benjamin, least of the tribes, at the head;
the princes of Judah in a company; *

and the princes of Zebulon and Naphtali.

28 Send forth your strength, O God; *
establish, O God, what you have wrought for us.

29 Kings shall bring gifts to you, *
for your temple's sake at Jerusalem.

30 Rebuke the wild beast of the reeds, *
and the peoples, a herd of wild bulls with its calves.

31 Trample down those who lust after silver; *
scatter the peoples that delight in war.

32 Let tribute be brought out of Egypt; *
let Ethiopia stretch out her hands to God.

33 Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth; *
sing praises to the Lord.

34 He rides in the heavens, the ancient heavens; *
he sends forth his voice, his mighty voice.

35 Ascribe power to God; *
his majesty is over Israel;

his strength is in the skies.

36 How wonderful is God in his holy places! *
the God of Israel giving strength and power to his people!

Blessed be God!

Celebrate



Ariana Grande: Britain Tour

Celebrate
Creation
創造を祝う
Sōzō o iwau 
ps 66

Celebrate creation with sound.
Let joy resound from the ground.

Sing for the glory of the light.
Dance for the mystery of the night.

The air adores the earth
for the mirth of her girth.

The planet gives birth to gravity
for fun in the sun, not depravity.

Sing praises for design.
Look to see that which is benign.

Have some wine! It's fine!
Say, "You are awesome" to life.
Enemies become non-combatant
with respect for rights.

Raise praise in different ways
for the rest of your days.
It will bring out the best in your way.

Manifest destiny had its run.
Exclusion by destruction 
was what it had won.
Representation by inclusion
helps us to work as one.

The rule of law by due process
helps us to do what needs to be done.
Charges against a suspect need attention
in court with a jury that looks at the smoking gun
in the body of evidence to judge with doubt
to bring truth out.

Skepticism must have clout
to see truth. Justice will shout
for correction, not cruelty in punishment
for deception. Discrimination is not allowed.
Don't pout.

Bless this house with sound from all around.
Let the sound be music as the profound ground
for happiness in what is best.

We have been tested, but not bested.
We have been tried, but not fried.
We will not be denied.

We had been pushed into a trap
with a burden on our backs.

Spinners made themselves look like winners.
Backers became whip crackers turned hackers,
but they will never win. Spin is their sin.

We will enter our house with offerings of joy.
Everyone will accomplish more as we build
our love together to deploy.

Draw near all you who are dear.
Don't fear. You will hear celebration 
for what has been done for our nation!

Celebrate civility with joy to employ
love. Build a bastion of happiness
for your memory practice.

Raise praise in different ways
for the rest of your days.

It will bring out the best in your way.
Celebrate creation with sound.
Let joy resound from the ground.

Sing for the glory of the light.
Dance for the mystery of the night.

Yea Yah!

66 Jubilate Deo

1 Be joyful in God, all you lands; *
sing the glory of his Name;
sing the glory of his praise.

2 Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! *
because of your great strength your enemies
cringe before you.

3 All the earth bows down before you, *
sings to you, sings out your Name."

4 Come now and see the works of God, *
how wonderful he is in his doing toward all people.

5 He turned the sea into dry land,
so that they went through the water on foot, *
and there we rejoiced in him.

6 In his might he rules for ever;
his eyes keep watch over the nations; *
let no rebel rise up against him.

7 Bless our God, you peoples; *
make the voice of his praise to be heard;

8 Who holds our souls in life, *
and will not allow our feet to slip.

9 For you, O God, have proved us; *
you have tried us just as silver is tried.

10 You brought us into the snare; *
you laid heavy burdens upon our backs.

11 You let enemies ride over our heads;
we went through fire and water; *
but you brought us out into a place of refreshment.

12 I will enter your house with burnt-offerings
and will pay you my vows, *
which I promised with my lips
and spoke with my mouth when I was in trouble.

13 I will offer you sacrifices of fat beasts
with the smoke of rams; *
I will give you oxen and goats.

14 Come and listen, all you who fear God, *
and I will tell you what he has done for me.

15 I called out to him with my mouth, *
and his praise was on my tongue.

16 If I had found evil in my heart, *
the Lord would not have heard me;

17 But in truth God has heard me; *
he has attended to the voice of my prayer.

18 Blessed be God, who has not rejected my prayer, *
nor withheld his love from me.

Take


Anna Paquin:
"Bellevue"

Take
Refuge
避難する
Hinan suru 
ps 31

Take refuge.
Safety is your due.

I have taken refuge in you.
You keep me from feeling blue.

Don't make me regret my trust.
I feel like this will last beyond the dust.

Bring me civility.
Civility cultivates fertility.

Please listen.
Sweat glistens.

The clock is ticking.
My pulse is quickening.

Time is escaping.
Reality is quaking.

Be my defense.
Let me see what is sure about sense.

You are my rock.
You walked the walk.

My foundation is sure.
My intention is pure.

Lead me in love.
Loving is what I've won.

Limit weapon use to defense.
Offense is not what's meant.

Let defense be defensive
Non-violence isn't offensive
but it doesn't rule out aggression.

Aggression isn't an excuse for violence,
cruelty in punishment or violet silence.

Deliver me from the trap they have set.
I won't enter into something I have to regret.

They have been exploiting trust.
They promised protection that would not rust.

You are my strength.
The measure extends beyond time's length.

I commend my spirit to your care.
Your love has led me to dare
to share.

You have redeemed me with truth.
Meaning gives trust that soothes.

My time is yours.
Design divined cures.

Help me to find independence.
Freedom in the law is sent from heaven.

Deliver me from deception and oppression.
The state created is not worthy of leaven.

Let your light shine through me.
Your joy in my face will be seen.

Your kindness will redeem me.
Your redemption will be believed.

You kept me from feeling blue.
I have taken refuge in you.

Safety is your due.
Take refuge.


31 In te, Domine, speravi

1 In you, O Lord, have I taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame; *
deliver me in your righteousness.

2 Incline your ear to me; *
make haste to deliver me.

3 Be my strong rock, a castle to keep me safe,
for you are my crag and my stronghold; *
for the sake of your Name, lead me and guide me.

4 Take me out of the net that they have secretly set for me, *
for you are my tower of strength.

5 Into your hands I commend my spirit, *
for you have redeemed me,
O Lord, O God of truth.

6 I hate those who cling to worthless idols, *
and I put my trust in the Lord.

7 I will rejoice and be glad because of your mercy; *
for you have seen my affliction;
you know my distress.

8 You have not shut me up in the power of the enemy; *
you have set my feet in an open place.

9 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am in trouble; *
my eye is consumed with sorrow,
and also my throat and my belly.

10 For my life is wasted with grief,
and my years with sighing; *
my strength fails me because of affliction,
and my bones are consumed.

11 I have become a reproach to all my enemies and
even to my neighbors,
a dismay to those of my acquaintance; *
when they see me in the street they avoid me.

12 I am forgotten like a dead man, out of mind; *
I am as useless as a broken pot.

13 For I have heard the whispering of the crowd;
fear is all around; *
they put their heads together against me;
they plot to take my life.

14 But as for me, I have trusted in you, O Lord. *
I have said, "You are my God.

15 My times are in your hand; *
rescue me from the hand of my enemies,
and from those who persecute me.

16 Make your face to shine upon your servant, *
and in your loving-kindness save me."

17 Lord, let me not be ashamed for having called upon you; *
rather, let the wicked be put to shame;
let them be silent in the grave.

18 Let the lying lips be silenced which speak against
the righteous, *
haughtily, disdainfully, and with contempt.

19 How great is your goodness, O Lord!
which you have laid up for those who fear you; *
which you have done in the sight of all
for those who put their trust in you.

20 You hide them in the covert of your presence from those
who slander them; *
you keep them in your shelter from the strife of tongues.

21 Blessed be the Lord! *
for he has shown me the wonders of his love in a
besieged city.

22 Yet I said in my alarm,
"I have been cut off from the sight of your eyes." *
Nevertheless, you heard the sound of my entreaty
when I cried out to you.

23 Love the Lord, all you who worship him; *
the Lord protects the faithful,
but repays to the full those who act haughtily.

24 Be strong and let your heart take courage, *
all you who wait for the Lord.

Revere


Amanda Righetti:
"Colony"

Revere
Life
リヴィア生活
Rivu~ia seikatsu
ps116

Revere life.
It will end your strife.
I found help when I needed it.
I had to intercede for it.

The cords of death had entangled me. 
The grip of the grave grabbed at what I could see.
Sorrow drove sadness to the threshold of pain.
Pain prompted panic. Thought seemed like it was vain.

Then I cried for help, “What do I have to do to find safety?”
Safety gained value as something precious to me.
I felt desperate need. My mind cried for direction.
My senses sharpened. Sight, sound and touch were used for detection.

I found what I needed before the moment of crisis.
Need helped me find how to be decisive.

I did what needed to be done.
It wasn't pretty, but it saved life for fun.
The success of salvation is gracious.
It reveals health and safety as values for stasis.

Nothing else is quite so profound.
It is an experience that forms common ground.
Defense is granted to the watchful.
Testing conception provides the best consul.

I fell very low, but I was helped.
The answer was shown with stealth 
for my health.

It is time to rest.
Stress from the test 
has taken its toll.
It has worn out my torn soul.

I was rescued from death.
I appreciate life for what's best.
My eyes shed no tears.
I overcame all my fears.

My feet did not stumble,
but I have been left feeling humble.
I will walk in the presence 
of the divine essence
in the land of the living.
Design that I find is worth what is found in the giving.
I had faith even when I had been brought low.
I had no where to turn; no where to go

Even when I said, “No one can be trusted”
I found that ground that could not be busted.
It was like a precious metal that has never rusted.
How will I repay my debt?
I will not wallow in regret.
I will not fuss and fret. 

The good things that have been done for me
were given with grace, but they were not entirely free.
I will lift up the cup of salvation and hold it high.
I will sing with my voice; let it soar to the sky.
I will live with reverence for life as the rule of law.
It is respect for human rights that hammers the saw.

Precious in the sight of the divine Light
is the death of those who defend rights.
They live good lives
for resurrected life.

I am a defender of rights. 
I have been resurrected as a good life
by the experience that brought me near death. 
Death became a giver of appreciation for what is best.

I tasted a glimpse of the infinite abyss.
I saw that I could not taste what I could not kiss.
It was black and gray with white lights.
The highest of heights showed no measurable sight.

I have been freed from the world of discrimination.
The lack of equity has implicated the nation
among nations.

I will offer thanksgiving as my sacrifice.
I will give thanks to the Giver of life.
I will give reasons for reason
with respect for due season
to benefit people in the presence 
of the divine essence.

I will be a subject
in the assembly in public
in the city of peace 
that works for its ease
in the laughter of the daughter
by the water. 

Yea Yah!

116 Dilexi, quoniam

1 I love the Lord, because he has heard the voice of
my supplication, *
because he has inclined his ear to me whenever
I called upon him.

2 The cords of death entangled me;
the grip of the grave took hold of me; *
I came to grief and sorrow.

3 Then I called upon the Name of the Lord: *
"O Lord, I pray you, save my life."

4 Gracious is the Lord and righteous; *
our God is full of compassion.

5 The Lord watches over the innocent; *
I was brought very low, and he helped me.

6 Turn again to your rest, O my soul. *
for the Lord has treated you well.

7 For you have rescued my life from death, *
my eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling.

8 I will walk in the presence of the Lord *
in the land of the living.

9 I believed, even when I said,
"I have been brought very low." *
In my distress I said, "No one can be trusted."

10 How shall I repay the Lord *
for all the good things he has done for me?

11 I will lift up the cup of salvation *
and call upon the Name of the Lord.

12 I will fulfill my vows to the Lord *
in the presence of all his people.

13 Precious in the sight of the Lord *
is the death of his servants.

14 O Lord, I am your servant; *
I am your servant and the child of your handmaid;
you have freed me from my bonds.

15 I will offer you the sacrifice of thanksgiving *
and call upon the Name of the Lord.

16 I will fulfill my vows to the Lord *
in the presence of all his people,

17 In the courts of the Lord's house, *
in the midst of you, O Jerusalem.

Hallelujah!

Manage
Resources
リソースを管理する
Risōsu o kanri suru 
ps16

Conserving resources preserves energy.
The management works for me.

The cultivation of production in time
works best when managed with respect for design.

The rule of law is for protection.
Crime is subject to correction.

Cruelty in punishment is not the cure.
Direction by correction works for sure.

Delight is shown with respect for others.
Joy is a reward that doesn't smother.

Law that places profit above people is flawed.
War or genocide is not to be held in awe.

Life rules the living.
Love favors giving.

Order by design is my proportion.
This table doesn't suffer from mass distortion.

Boundaries enclose pleasure
as a measured treasure.

Healthy happiness is a good heritage.
It works in and outside of marriage.

My heart reviews reaching for the teaching of truth.
This teaching is not reserved for the dismissal of youth.

Good counsel is blessed.
It helps you test for the best.

Don't support the rule of death.
It is more destructive than a missiled jet. 

Justice with liberty is the goal of law.
Equity is what the economy has to draw.

The accomplishment before me
is built upon the accomplishment seen.

My heart rejoices. My spirit is glad.
My strength avoids that which is bad.

I have not been condemned by the grave.
The rule of death does not bless or save.

The path to life is being known
by the design that is shown.

There is fullness of joy in your presence.
Discovery of the essential essence
gives joy as a present.


16 Conserva me, Domine

1 Protect me, O God, for I take refuge in you; *
I have said to the Lord, "You are my Lord,
my good above all other."

2 All my delight is upon the godly that are in the land, *
upon those who are noble among the people.

3 But those who run after other gods *
shall have their troubles multiplied.

4 Their libations of blood I will not offer, *
nor take the names of their gods upon my lips.

5 O Lord, you are my portion and my cup; *
it is you who uphold my lot.

6 My boundaries enclose a pleasant land; *
indeed, I have a goodly heritage.

7 I will bless the Lord who gives me counsel; *
my heart teaches me, night after night.

8 I have set the Lord always before me; *
because he is at my right hand I shall not fall.

9 My heart, therefore, is glad, and my spirit rejoices; *
my body also shall rest in hope.

10 For you will not abandon me to the grave, *
nor let your holy one see the Pit.

11 You will show me the path of life; *
in your presence there is fullness of joy,
and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.

Discover
Truth
真実を発見する
Shinjitsu o hakken suru 
ps114

Discover truth
for your youth.

Discovery is a creative act. 
When you define a thing it becomes a fact.

Reality produces creation by design.
Design expressed by me is mine.

When perception came out of anguish
conflict became a foreign language.

Courage became our sanctuary;
learning our actuary
over the adversary
adversity.
Have mercy.


Creation by discovery divines design.
Goodness is the quality we seek to find.

Discovery was a creative act. 
Creation became an actual fact.

Ignorance looked and fled.
The stream of consciousness was fed.
Creativity lept with joy.
The lion became the lamb's great toy.

Why did the stream of thought change?
What produced the strangeness in range?

What made ignorance flee?
Was it the discovery of creativity?

Discovery is a creative act.
The created acquires heart in fact.

Tremble at the presence 
of the essential essence.

The Teacher teaches the student to discover truth.
The student looks for facts like a sleuth. 

Find new information.
Observe your sensation.
Transcend encumbrance.
Infer knowledge from substance.
Sense that which is actual.
Translate this sense into the factual.

The sleuth records that which is found.
Results are shared to test for common ground.

Creation by discovery divines design for reality.
Goodness is the basis for healthy morality.

Discovery is a creative act. 
When you define a thing it becomes a fact.

Discover truth
for your youth.

Yeah Yah!
We're in awe!
You're the law!
Yeah Yah!

114 In exitu Israel

1 Hallelujah!
When Israel came out of Egypt, *
the house of Jacob from a people of strange speech,

2 Judah became God's sanctuary *
and Israel his dominion.

3 The sea beheld it and fled; *
Jordan turned and went back.

4 The mountains skipped like rams, *
and the little hills like young sheep.

5 What ailed you, O sea, that you fled? *
O Jordan, that you turned back?

6 You mountains, that you skipped like rams? *
you little hills like young sheep?

7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, *
at the presence of the God of Jacob,

8 Who turned the hard rock into a pool of water *
and flint-stone into a flowing spring.

Mercy
どうかご慈悲をDō ka go jihi o

Dare to have mercy
with certainty.

Mercy endures in memory 
for maturity.

Remember this you nations.
This will last for generations.

That which is legal about law is regal 
from the eagle to the beetle, you people.

Mercy endures in memory at length. 
Gentle generation is the foundation for love with strength.

Love secures endurance.
Endurance with education and allurance
yields wisdom and knowledge for insurance
with perspective on perception that yields judgment for assurance  

Let the vote denote the number
of those who support policy for office that does not encumber
all the people as the greatest number.

Let the vote connote opposition to policies that harm the public.
Let freedom ring for people in kingdom or republic.

Allow defense when police protection is not at hand; 
free trade so plutocracy does not rule the land; 
construction for protection against damage from the elements and man;
communications with people in foreign nations; 
travel to experience different sensations
in various locations.

Beauty is in the strength of the song.
Success rings long with the bong 
of the gong.

Smoke drifts slowly from the echo of dreams.
Things are not as certain as they seem.

Open the gates of perspective on perception for consciousness.
I will see light with the sight that is given to perceive more of the less perceptible
with tests.

I will draw the inference

that reason helps me to believe.

I will live to declare the art of assurance

that science has drawn for me.

My ride 
is the tide.
I surf 
the turf 
like a porpoise with purpose; 
dancing with waves that surface
through swirls, curls and spirals in turbulance. 

Dare to have mercy.
Mercy endures in memory for surety.

Mercy endures in memory at length. 
Gentle generation is the foundation for love with strength.


117 Laudate Dominum

1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; *
his mercy endures for ever.

2 Let Israel now proclaim, *
"His mercy endures for ever."

3 Let the house of Aaron now proclaim, *
"His mercy endures for ever."

4 Let those who fear the Lord now proclaim, *
"His mercy endures for ever."

5 I called to the Lord in my distress; *
the Lord answered by setting me free.

6 The Lord is at my side, therefore I will not fear; *
what can anyone do to me?

7 The Lord is at my side to help me; *
I will triumph over those who hate me.

8 It is better to rely on the Lord *
than to put any trust in flesh.

9 It is better to rely on the Lord *
than to put any trust in rulers.

10 All the ungodly encompass me; *
in the name of the Lord I will repel them.

11 They hem me in, they hem me in on every side; *
in the name of the Lord I will repel them.

12 They swarm about me like bees;
they blaze like a fire of thorns; *
in the name of the Lord I will repel them.

13 I was pressed so hard that I almost fell, *
but the Lord came to my help.

14 The Lord is my strength and my song, *
and he has become my salvation.

15 There is a sound of exultation and victory *
in the tents of the righteous:

16 "The right hand of the Lord has triumphed! *
the right hand of the Lord is exalted!
the right hand of the Lord has triumphed!"

17 I shall not die, but live, *
and declare the works of the Lord.

18 The Lord has punished me sorely, *
but he did not hand me over to death.

19 Open for me the gates of righteousness; *
I will enter them;
I will offer thanks to the Lord.

20 "This is the gate of the Lord; *
he who is righteous may enter."

21 I will give thanks to you, for you answered me *
and have become my salvation.

22 The same stone which the builders rejected *
has become the chief cornerstone.

23 This is the Lord's doing, *
and it is marvelous in our eyes.

24 On this day the Lord has acted; *
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
 
25 Hosannah, Lord, hosannah! *
Lord, send us now success.

26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord; *
we bless you from the house of the Lord.

27 God is the Lord; he has shined upon us; *
form a procession with branches up to the horns of the altar.
28 "You are my God, and I will thank you; *
you are my God, and I will exalt you."

29 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; *
his mercy endures for ever.
