Refrain:    The Lord shall give his people the blessing of peace.

1    Ascribe to the Lord, you powers of heaven,  

ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

2    Ascribe to the Lord the honour due to his name;  

worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

3    The voice of the Lord is upon the waters;

the God of glory thunders;  

the Lord is upon the mighty waters. [R]

4    The voice of the Lord is mighty in operation;  

the voice of the Lord is a glorious voice.

5    The voice of the Lord breaks the cedar trees;  

the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon;

6    He makes Lebanon skip like a calf  

and Sirion like a young wild ox. [R]

7    The voice of the Lord splits the flash of lightning;

the voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;  

the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

8    The voice of the Lord makes the oak trees writhe

and strips the forests bare;  

in his temple all cry, ‘Glory!’

9    The Lord sits enthroned above the water flood;  

the Lord sits enthroned as king for evermore.

10  The Lord shall give strength to his people;  

the Lord shall give his people the blessing of peace.

Refrain:    The Lord shall give his people the blessing of peace.

Open our ears, glorious Lord Christ,

to hear the music of your voice

above the chaos of this world;

open our eyes to see the vision of your glory,

for you are our King, now and for ever.
