1. Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem: praise thy God, O Sion.

13. Because he hath strengthened the bolts of thy gates, he hath blessed thy children within thee.

14. Who hath placed peace in thy borders: and filleth thee with the fat of corn.

15. Who sendeth forth his speech to the earth: his word runneth swiftly.

16. Who giveth snow like wool: scattereth mists like ashes.

17. He sendeth his crystal like morsels: who shall stand before the face of his cold?

18. He shall send out his word, and shall melt them: his wind shall blow, and the waters shall run.

19. Who declareth his word to Jacob: his justices and his judgments to Israel.

20. He hath not done in like manner to every nation: and his judgments he hath not made manifest to them. Alleluia.

“Subamos sem nos cansarmos, sob a celeste vista do Salvador. Distanciemo-nos das afeições terrenas. Despojemo-nos do homem velho e vistamo-nos do homem novo. Aspiremos à felicidade que nos está reservada.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
