Key of David, who open the gates of the eternal kingdom,come to liberate from prison the captive who lives in darkness.*


Psalm 32:1–3. 11–12. 20–21
Joyful song to the creator: national hymn of thanksgiving

1Ring out your joy to the Lord, O you just;
for praise is fitting for loyal hearts.

2Give thanks to the Lord upon the harp,
with a ten-stringed lute sing him songs.
3O sing him a song that is new,
play loudly, with all your skill.

11His own designs shall stand for ever,
the plans of his heart from age to age.
12They are happy, whose God is the Lord,
the people he has chosen as his own.

20Our soul is waiting for the Lord.
The Lord is our help and our shield.
21In him do our hearts find joy,
We trust in his holy name.
