Day 11 – Strength Training

In between the First and Second Bible readings during Morning Prayer you will read the “Te Deum”. The Te Deum is an early Christian hymn of praise. It is called the Te Deum because its opening words in Latin are “Te Deum laudamus”, which means “You are God: we praise You”.

The following Hymn, Te Deum is said after the first reading

You are God: we praise You.
You are the Lord: we acclaim You;
You are the eternal Father,
All creation worships You.
To You all angels, all the powers of heaven,
Cherubim and Seraphim, sing in endless praise:
Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
Heaven and earth are full of Your glory.
The glorious company of apostles praises You.
The noble fellowship of prophets praises You.
The white-robed army of martyrs praises You.
Throughout the world the holy Church acclaims You:
Father, of majesty unbounded,
Your true and only Son, worthy of all worship,
And the Holy spirit, advocate and guide.
You, Christ, are the king of glory,
Eternal Son of the Father.
When You became man to set us free
You did not disdain the virgin’s womb.
You overcame death,
And opened the kingdom of heaven to all believers.
You are seated at God’s right hand in glory.
We believe that You will come, and be our judge.
Come then, Lord, sustain Your people,
Bought with the price of Your own blood,
And bring us with Your saints
To everlasting glory.
