Let Our Mouths Be Filled with Your Praise

Let our mouths be filled with your praise, O Lord,
that we may sing of your glory,
for you have permitted us to partake
of your holy, divine, immortal and life-giving mysteries.
Preserve us in your holiness,
that we may meditate on your righteousness all the day long.
Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
