Canticle 8 

The Song of Moses 
Cantemus Domino 

Exodus 15:1-6, 11-13, 17-18 

I will sing to the Lord, for he is lofty and uplifted; *
  the horse and its rider has he hurled into the sea. 
The Lord is my strength and my refuge; *
  the Lord has become my Savior. 
This is my God and I will praise him, *
  the God of my people and I will exalt him. 
The Lord is a mighty warrior; *
 Yahweh is his Name. 
The chariots of Pharaoh and his army has he hurled into the sea; *
  the finest of those who bear armor have been drowned in the Red Sea. 
The fathomless deep has overwhelmed them; *
  they sank into the depths like a stone. 
Your right hand, O Lord, is glorious in might; *
  your right hand, O Lord, has overthrown the enemy. 
Who can be compared with you, O Lord, among the gods? *
  who is like you, glorious in holiness, awesome in renown, and worker of wonders? 
You stretched forth your right hand; *
  the earth swallowed them up. 
With your constant love you led the people you redeemed; *
  with your might you brought them in safety to your holy dwelling. 
You will bring them in and plant them *
  on the mount of your possession, 
The resting-place you have made for yourself, O Lord, *
  the sanctuary, O Lord, that your hand has established. 
The Lord shall reign *
  for ever and for ever. 

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
