Decalogue

 

From all that dwell below the skies, let the Creator's praise arise; Let the Redeemer's name be  sung through every land by every tongue. And God spake all these words, saying: I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shall have no other gods before me.

               P.  Lord have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law.

              All: Nearer my God to thee!

              Nearer to thee,  E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me;

              Still all my song shall be,

              Nearer, my God to thee,

              Nearer, my God to thee,

              Nearer to thee

Here What Christ out Savior saith, thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it: Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the begining, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
