1 A Canticle of David himself, when the house was built after the captivity. Sing to the Lord a new song. Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Sing to the Lord and bless his name. Announce his salvation from day to day.
3 Announce his glory among the Gentiles, his miracles among all peoples.
4 For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised. He is terrible, beyond all gods.
5 For all the gods of the Gentiles are demons, but the Lord made the heavens.
6 Confession and beauty are in his sight. Sanctity and magnificence are in his sanctuary.
7 Bring to the Lord, you natives of the nations, bring to the Lord glory and honor.
8 Bring to the Lord glory for his name. Lift up sacrifices, and enter into his courts.
9 Adore the Lord in his holy court. Let the entire earth be shaken before his face.
10 Say among the Gentiles: The Lord has reigned. For he has even corrected the whole world, which will not be shaken. He will judge the peoples with fairness.
Isaiah 45:1, 4-6
1 Thus says the Lord to my anointed Cyrus, whose right hand I hold, so that I may subjugate the nations before his face, and I may turn the backs of kings, and I may open the doors before him, and so that the gates will not be shut.
4 For the sake of Jacob, my servant, and Israel, my elect, I have even called you by your name. I have taken you up, and you have not known me.
5 I am the Lord, and there is no one else. There is no god beside me. I girded you, and you have not known me.
6 So may those who are from the rising of the sun, and those who are from its setting, know that there is no one beside me. I am the Lord, and there is no other.
