O God, Thou art worthy to be praised with all pure and holy praise.
Therefore let the saints praise Thee with all Thy creatures; and let all Thine angels and Thine elect praiseThee for ever.
Thou art to be praised, for Thou hast made these Thy servants joyful.
Thou hast dealt with them according to Thy great mercy.
Grant them mercy, O Lord, And finish their life in health with joy.
For Thou hast made these Thy servants joyful, O finish their life in health and joy.
The Lord send thee health from the sanctuary: and strengthen thee out of Sion.
Grant thee thy heart's desire,and fulfil all thy mind.
The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble: the Name of the God of Jacob defend thee. Amen.
