Praise ye Him According To The Multitude Of His Greatness

The Resurrection of Christ 
c. 1570

Solemn Lauds of Easter Day
PSALM 150 (from the Vulgate Psalter)

Praise ye the Lord in His holy places: * praise ye Him in the firmament of His power. Praise ye Him for His mighty acts: * praise ye Him according to the multitude of His greatness. Praise Him with sound of trumpets: * praise Him with psaltery and harp. Praise Him with timbrel and choir: * praise Him with strings and organs. Praise Him on high sounding cymbals: praise Him on cymbals of joy. * Let every spirit praise the Lord. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, * world without end. Amen.
