The Twenty-first Sunday after Trinity.
Benedic, anima mea.
PRAISE the Lord, O my soul; * and all that is within me, praise his holy Name.
Praise the Lord, O my soul, * and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thy sin, * and healeth all thine infirmities;
Who saveth thy life from destruction, * and crowneth thee with mercy and loving-kindness.
O praise the Lord, ye angels of his, ye that excel in strength; * ye that fulfil his commandment, and hearken unto the voice of his word.
O praise the Lord, all ye his hosts; * ye servants of his that do his pleasure.
O speak good of the Lord, all ye works of his, in all places of his dominion: * praise thou the Lord, O my soul.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son * and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be * world without end. Amen.
