     1 O LORD, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. 2 For thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built. 3 Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee. 4 For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall. 5 Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.

     6 And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations. 8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.

     9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.(KJV)

1. Ye sons and daughters of the King, 
Whom heavenly hosts in glory sing, 
Today the grave hath lost its sting: 

2. On that first morning of the week, 
Before the day began to break, 
The Marys went their Lord to seek: 

3. An angel bade their sorrow flee, 
For thus he spake unto the three: 
“Your Lord is gone to Galilee”: 

4. That night the Apostles met in fear, 
Amidst them came their Lord most dear 
And said: “Peace be unto you here”: 

5. When Thomas afterwards had heard 
That Jesus had fulfilled His word, 
He doubted if it were the Lord: 

6. “Thomas, behold My side,” saith He, 
“My hands, My feet, My body, see; 
“And doubt not, but believe in Me”: 

7. No longer Thomas then denied; 
He saw the feet, the hands, the side; 
“Thou art my Lord and God,” he cried: 

8. Blessed are they that have not seen 
And yet whose faith hath constant been, 
In Iife eternal they shall reign: 

9. On this most holy day of days 
To God your hearts and voices raise 
In laud and jubilee and praise: 

10. And we with holy Church unite, 
As evermore is just and right, 
In glory to the King of light:
