10Rejoice, Jerusalem! Let the Church rejoice be cause the Lord has strengthened the bars of her gates. The powers of evil and death will not overcome her. The Lord blessed her children and gave them his peace, not that of the world. He feeds his Church with his word and the best of wheat: his body-made-bread of life.
1 How good it is to sing to our God,
1 how sweet and befitting to praise him!
2 The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem
2 he gathers the exiles of Israel
3 he heals their broken hearts
3 and binds up their wounds.
4 He determines the number of stars,
4 he calls each of them by name.
5 The Lord is great and mighty in power
5 his wisdom is beyond measure.
6 The Lord lifts up the humble,
6 but casts the wicked to the ground.
7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving,
7 make music on the harp for our God.
8 With clouds he covers the sky,
8 and provides the earth with rain
8 he covers the hills with grass,
8 and with plants for man to cultivate.
9 He provides food for the cattle,
9 even for the young ravens when they call.
10 He is not concerned with the strength of a horse
