The Song of Moses

[i will sing to the lord for he is lofty and uplifted]
Richard Wayne Dirksen, b. 1921

Antiphon: Alleluia, alleluia, alleuia.

Antiphon in Lent and at the Easter Vigil: I will sing to the Lord for he has risen up in might

Antiphon in Easter Season: I will sing to the Lord for he has risen up in might, alleuia.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

8. 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?

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

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

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

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

13. The Lord shall reign for ever and for ever. [Ant.]

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. [Ant.]
