1. Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our saviour.

2. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.

3. For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

4. For in his hand are all the ends of the earth: and the heights of the mountains are his.

5. For the sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.

6. Come let us adore and fall down: and weep before the Lord that made us.

7. For he is the Lord our God: and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.

8. To day if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts:

9. As in the provocation, according to the day of temptation in the wilderness: where your fathers tempted me, they proved me, and saw my works.

10. Forty years long was I offended with that generation, and I said: These always err in heart.

11. And these men have not known my ways: so I swore in my wrath that they shall not enter into my rest.

“O Senhor sempre orienta e chama; mas não se quer segui-lo e responder-lhe, pois só se vê os próprios interesses. Às vezes, pelo fato de se ouvir sempre a Sua voz, ninguém mais se apercebe dela; mas o Senhor ilumina e chama. São os homens que se colocam na posição de não conseguir mais escutar.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
