Psalm 113

When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a barbarous people,
Judea was made His sanctuary, and Israel His dominion.
The sea saw it and fled: Jordan was driver back.
The mountains skipped like rams, and the hills like the lambs of the flock.
What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou didst flee? and thou Jordan, that thou wast turned back?
Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams? and ye hills, like lambs of the flock?
The earth was moved at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob:
Who turned the rock into pools of water and the stony hill into a fountain of waters.
Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us: but unto Thy Name give glory.
For Thy mercy, and for Thy truth's sake: Wherefore should the heathen say: Where is now their God?
But our God is in heaven: He hath done all things whatsoever He would.
The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not.
They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not.
They have hands, but they feel not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
Let them that make them be like unto them: and all such as trust in them.
The house of Israel trusteth in the Lord: He is their helper and their protector.
The house o Aaron trusteth in the Lord: He is their helper and their protector.
They that fear the Lord trust in the Lord: He is their helper and their protector.
The Lord hath been mindful of us, and hath blessed us.
He hath blessed the house of Israel: He hath blessed the house of Aaron.
He hath blessed them that fear the Lord, both small and great.
May the Lord add blessings upon you; upon you and upon your children.
Blessed be you of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
The heaven of heavens is the Lord's but the earth hath He given to the children of men.
The dead shall not priase Thee, O Lord, neither all they that go down to hell.
But we that live bless the Lord, from this time forth for everymore.
Ant. But our God is in heaven: He hath done all things whatsoever He would.
