Inside of Saint Ananias Axilera at English Wikipedia [CC BY-SA 3.0]
O most glorious and exalted Lord,
you are glorified in the heights above
by ministers of fire and spirit in most holy fashion,
yet in your love
you wished to be glorified by mankind on earth as well,
so that you might exalt our mortal race
and make us like celestial beings and brothers in your dominion.
Free us, Lord, in your compassion
from whatever cares hinder the worship of you,
and teach us to seek the kingdom and its righteousness
in accordance with your holy commandments that bring life;
and may we become worthy of that kingdom
along with all the saints who have done your will,
and may we sing your praises.
Maronite Shehimto, from the Syrian Orthodox Daily Office Book
Praise the Lord.
Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.
Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
Let them praise his name with dancing
and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he crowns the humble with victory.
Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor
and sing for joy on their beds.
