The Song of Moses

Cantemus Domino

Exodus 15:1-6, 11-13, 17-18

Especially suitable for use in Easter Season

I will sing to the Lord, for he is lofty and uplifted; *the horse and its rider has he hurled into the sea.

The Lord is my strength and my refuge; *the Lord has become my Savior.

This is my God and I will praise him, *the God of my people and I will exalt him.

The Lord is a mighty warrior; *Yahweh is his Name.

The chariots of Pharoah and his army has he hurled into the sea; *the finest of those who bear armor have been drowned in the Red Sea.

The fathomless deep has overwhelmed them; *they sank into the depths like a stone.

Your right hand, O Lord, is glorious in might; *your right hand, O Lord, has overthrown the enemy.

Who can be compared with you, O Lord, among the gods? *who is like you, glorious in holiness, awesome in renown, and worker of wonders?

You stretched forth your right hand; *the earth swallowed them up.

With your constant love you led the people you redeemed; *with your might you brought them in safety to your holy dwelling.

You will bring them in and plant them *on the mount of your possession,

The resting-place you have made for yourself, O Lord, *the sanctuary, O Lord, that your hand has established.

The Lord shall reign *for ever and for ever.

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