    Let God arise, and let his enemies be scattered:
    let them also that hate him flee before him.

    Let the righteous be glad and rejoice before God:
    let them also be merry and joyful.
  5. Chorus
    O sing unto God, and sing praises unto his name.
  6. Accompagnato
    Praised be the Lord.
  7. Chorus
    At thy rebuke, O God: both the chariot and horse are fall’n.

    Blessed be God, Alleluia.
