Te Deum Laudamus (We praise you O God)

We praise you O God: we acknowledge you to be the Lord.
All creation worships you: the Father everlasting.
To you all angels cry aloud: with all the powers of heaven, Cherubim and Seraphim: ever sing in endless praise,
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of power and might: heaven and earth are full of your glory.
The glorious company of apostles praise you: the goodly fellowship of prophets praise you.
The noble army of martyrs praise you: through all the world your holy Church acclaims you, Father of majesty unbounded:
your true and only Son and the Holy Spirit, advocate and guide.

You Lord Christ are the King of glory: the eternal Son of the Father.
When you became man to set us free: you did not disdain the virgin’s womb.
When you overcame the sting of death: you opened the kingdom of heaven to all believers.
You are seated at God’s right hand in glory: we believe that you will come to be our judge.
Come then Lord and help your people: bought with the price of your own blood;
   and bring us with your saints to glory everlasting. 

Reflect. 

Being Sunday, today is the Lord’s Day, the first day of the week when we gather with God’s people. Ask:

  • As I look back over the past week, for what can I thank God?
  • Have I asked God’s forgiveness for the things I have done and ought not to have done, and for those things that I ought to have done, but have not done?
  • In going to church today, have I prayed for the minister(s) and for people at church?
  • Have I prayed for others and invited one or more to come with me?
Pray.
