Benedicite



On this Day of Resurrection, let us praise the Lord with some words from the Old Testament Canticle at Lauds, as we enjoy some of the spectacular views around The Hermitage at Dunkeld.




In unison did the three amidst the fiery flames cry out and sing: Blessed be God, alleluia!

Bless the Lord all created things:
sing his praise and exalt him for ever.

O let the earth bless the Lord:
bless the Lord you mountains and hills.

Bless the Lord all that grows in the ground:
sing his praise and exalt him for ever.

Bless the Lord you springs:
bless the Lord you seas and rivers.

Bless the Lord you whales and all that swim in the waters:
sing his praise and exalt him for ever.

Bless the Lord all birds of the air:
bless the Lord you beasts and cattle.

Bless the Lord all men on the earth:
sing his praise and exalt him for ever.

Bless the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit:
sing his praise and exalt him for ever.

In unison did the three amidst the fiery flames cry out and sing: Blessed be God, alleluia!




Have a Happy Sunday! Tomorrow - you will see my lodge!
