Original text and translations
Be glad and rejoice in the Lord your God,
That hath dealt wondrously with you.
He maketh peace in all thy borders,
and filleth thee with the flour of wheat.
Lift up your eyes on high, and behold
Who hath created these things by the greatness of His might.
Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness,
and all these things shall be added unto you.
O let my mouth be filled with Thy praise,
That I may sing of Thy glory and honour all the day long.
The valleys are covered with corn, they shout for joy.
Be glad and rejoice in the Lord your God. Amen.
