1. Alleluia! Sing a new song to Yahweh: his praise in the assembly of the faithful!

2. Israel shall rejoice in its Maker, the children of Zion delight in their king;

3. they shall dance in praise of his name, play to him on tambourines and harp!

4. For Yahweh loves his people, he will crown the humble with salvation.

5. The faithful exult in glory, shout for joy as they worship him,

6. praising God to the heights with their voices, a two-edged sword in their hands,

7. to wreak vengeance on the nations, punishment on the peoples,

8. to load their kings with chains and their nobles with iron fetters,

9. to execute on them the judgement passed -- to the honour of all his faithful.





“O sábio elogia a mulher forte dizendo: os seu dedos manejaram o fuso. A roca é o alvo dos seus desejos. Fie, portanto, cada dia um pouco. Puxe fio a fio até a execução e, infalivelmente, você chegará ao fim. Mas não tenha pressa, pois senão você poderá misturar o fio com os nós e embaraçar tudo.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
