Canticle: Great and Amazing Are Your Deeds

The canticle Great and Amazing Are Your Deeds is used in the Roman Liturgy of the Hours in Evening Prayer on Fridays.

Great and amazing are your deeds,
O Lord God the Almighty!
Just and true are your ways,
O King of the nations!
Who will not fear, O Lord,
and glorify your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come
and worship you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
