1 Blessed 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 Riches 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.
1 Chronicles 29.10b–13,14b
Glory to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now
and shall be for ever. Amen.
