St. Francis Psalm 9

  1. Sing to the Lord a new song
    For He has done wonderful deeds.
  2. With His right Hand, and His Holy Arm
    He has offered His Beloved Son in sacrifice.
  3. The Lord has made known His salvation
    He has revealed His justice to the nations.
  4. On that day the Lord ordained His mercy
    And at night His canticle.
  5. This is the day the Lord has made,
    Let us use it to be glad and rejoice.
  6. Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the Lord.
  7. The Lord is God, and He has shone upon us.
  8. Let the Heavens be glad and the earth rejoice,
    And let the sea swell with all its fullness,
    And let the fields and all that they contain rejoice.
  9. Offer to the Lord, you fathers of the nations-
    Offer Him glory and honour-
    Offer Him the glory of His Name.
  10. Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth,
    Sing a psalm to the Lord.
  11. Sing a psalm to God Who ascends to the highest Heaven
    In the regions of the east..
  12. Listen! He will let His glorious Voice resound!
  13. Give glory to God Who presides over Israel,
    Extol Him and His greatness to the clouds.
  14. God is wonderful in His Saints-
        He, the God of Israel, will give prowess and strength to His people.


Translated from the critical Latin by Pia Fugaccia 2006
