Psalm 19. Caeli enarrant.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Fourth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. The heavens declare the glory of God, *
    and the firmament shows his handiwork.
  2. One day tells its tale to another, *
    and one night imparts knowledge to another.
  3. Although they have no words or language, *
    and their voices are not heard,
  4. Their sound has gone out into all lands, *
    and their message to the ends of the world.
  5. In the deep has he set a pavilion for the sun; *
    it comes forth like a bridegroom out of his chamber; it rejoices like a champion to run its course.
  6. It goes forth from the uttermost edge of the heavens and runs about to the end of it again; *
    nothing is hidden from its burning heat.
  7. The law of the Lord is perfect and revives the soul; *
    the testimony of the Lord is sure and gives wisdom to the innocent.
  8. The statutes of the Lord are just and rejoice the heart; *
    the commandment of the Lord is clear and gives light to the eyes.
  9. The fear of the Lord is clean and endures for ever; *
    the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
  10. More to be desired are they than gold, more than much fine gold, *
    sweeter far than honey, than honey in the comb.
  11. By them also is your servant enlightened, *
    and in keeping them there is great reward.
  12. Who can tell how often he offends? *
    cleanse me from my secret faults.
  13. Above all, keep your servant from presumptuous sins; let them not get dominion over me; *
    then shall I be whole and sound, and innocent of a great offense.
  14. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, *
    O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.
